the Apple TV 4K...Got mine from a DirecTV Now promos where you pay three or four months of service for $35 a month and get the ATV 4K free. There’s a lot of cash back offers available for that deal too.

heh that's how i got mine, too :D

I got lucky because my BoA card gave me $75 cash back instead of the $35 they were supposed to give me so I got my ATV for $30!

Hey, just throwing this out there, but maybe keep this thread about Xbox gaming and positivity?


I’m playing my Xbox One X on my TCL which has some of the lowest latency for gaming. Just sayin’.

Love my TCL TV beware of one issue when you play a HDR game you have to go back to the Roku menu or turn TV on/off quickly otherwise your dashboard is all washed out from HDR. Known bug my friend with the newer TCL has the same issue.


Weird. My problem is the TV registers HDR on Netflix and gets washed out. It only happened a couple of times and just reopening Netflix fixed it.

I got the 55 tcl 6 series paired with my Xbox one x and it’s wonderful. Again apparently there some issues with vertical banding but I notice nothing on my screen, I haven’t had any issues with it. And all the Xbox one x settings click off on the tv so your good to go, hdr looks great. However now that some time has passed I realize the speakers are low quality and not that good. Turning it up I get a lot of sound vibration. Red dead redemption on the x and the tv look amazing btw looks like a recent gen game. Can’t wait for part 2 to look the best on the x

It isn't much, but I won't end up using this, so here it is up for grabs. This code is good for 25% off a rental on Vudu. Hopefully someone can use it.
 
VRVTR?LMYFCURGP?

 

? = A number considered lucky by most people

Must redeem by 7/25/2018 by 11:59pm PDT.

Just once unfortunately.  As soon as you purchase the first one for $9.99, you have an active subscription and excludes you from the "for new customers only" promo.

Thanks for the input so far!
 
 

I have a 3rd gen AppleTV so it isn't 4K, but I've considered getting a current gen unit because I have more 4K content there than I do on Vudu/others.  Some food for thought.
 

I heard about that, but I wonder why the consoles will support both technologies.  Are there that many displays that have one tech or the other and not both, or is it about the source media and not the display?  Or is it both? :-P
 

 

I think it has more to do with the various source material and what they offer.  FWIW I believe the 6 series Vudu app supports DV and HDR10.  So whatever movies you might already have in Vudu that support DV should display in DV.

 

I picked up last years P605 at Best Buy a month or so ago.  Just picked up my first 4k BluRay yesterday.  It supports both HDR10 and DV.  It also came with a vudu code which I redeemed and also is listed as UHD.  From what I read it should allow me to stream from Vudu and provide Dolby Vision but I haven't tried it yet.

 

I can't see my buying a lot of movies physical or digital but a few.  Wanted to see what all the hype is about and have a disc or two to show it off.  I wanted the Star Wars movie anyway and figured why not get it in 4K.  Plus my wife "made" me go to Walmart yesterday.  Figured I might as well get myself something while we were there.

Looking for some help on spending the rest of my MS credit (approx. $48).  I've narrowed it down to a few options:

 

A) Doom/Wolf 2 Bundle + 3 months Game Pass

B) Extend Gold for another year (currently expires 4/19) + Titanfall 2 or DE:HR

C) Save credit and hope that Nier: Automata goes on sale somewhat soon

D) Save credit for BF/Winter sale

 

So far, I've picked up Lego Star Wars: TFA (my 5yr old is obsessed with Lego Star Wars games), a re-buy of Pillars of Eternity and a pre-order of No Man's Sky.

 

Thanks!

I'd go with option B if you don't use Microsoft Rewards points on Xbox Live subs. 12 month Xbox Live subs don't drop sub $40 anymore.

Otherwise, stick with option D until option C becomes a reality. :)

I would go with D, which I imagine will be the same as C.

I don't think you'd regret Doom/Wolfenstein. Great games. It's tempting for me despite owning both physical copies (their reverse artwork is awesome). You should really Bing though, take care of that Gold membership with daily web browsing.

Did amazon change the rules of their promotional credit? Just tried to buy a $25 Xbox card and only $8 of my 27 balance will apply.

I kept almost buying Wolfenstein II and Doom pack but I decided to wait til I beat the first one. That pack might be cheaper at the Christmas sale anyways.

Yeah. No more use on video games for the No-rush credits. I thought maybe they wouldn't include the money cards being excluded alongside the game codes, but I now see that won't be the case. Ugh. Guess I'll have to pick a book or movie with my credits now.

I'm getting a little nervous and hoping someone else has seen this happen and has an idea what could cause it. Twice now my TV has displayed a nearly solid green screen. Saturday the store was getting wonky and freezing when looking at the ultimate sale page and it just randomly turned green with white outlines of text and boxes. This morning my xbox hadn't turned off on it's own like it should and when I turned it off the screen turned green.

For your penance you need to buy 3 heavily discounted games and never play them.

Way too often I find myself rebuying gaming content to play on my newer, preferred platforms.  The very same content that has been sitting untouched in the backlogs for my older, less used platforms.  I may need an intervention.

Really struggling witj whether i should buy battlefront ii or not. I generally enjoyed the first one, and consider myself a pretty big fan of star wars
For $15 it seems like a pretty good deal
Dlc is all free now right? Just cosmetics to buy with mtx?
