I am ready to purchase a 4K TV around 80"
details
I am going t buy a 4K TV looking for something around 80" +- a little. Not sure which one to go with. I have been researching for sometime and am stuck between Sony XBR-79X900B and the Samsung 4K UHD HU8550. The Samsung is 6" bigger and doesn't have those huge speakers on the side that Sony has which is nice. The Sony specs make me think it may have slightly better picture quality. Any guidance from someone more Tech Savvy then my self would be much appreciated

Is it still worth it to build a Windows Media Center PC?
details
After removing DVR from my household to shave the cord (wife still needs live Bravo and E!), I've realized how much stuff is missing from Netflix and Hulu+. I would use my Apple TV and iTunes, but I'd like not to pay $60 a season. Is it still worth the money to build an HTPC on Win7 with a Ceton Echo and an InfiniTV? I would use Win8.1, but I don't want to buy 3 Xbox 360s, and the Echo is cheaper.

I'm currently working with someone to help decide on a home media entertainment solution. The client currently has 4 TV's all with Apple TV, 3 iPad's, 2 iPhones, client has a PC laptop (using Office and iTunes, and the wife has a PC laptop. The client wants to be able to share/edit videos/pictures internally and externally. The pictures and videos are extremely important to the family.

Best setup for a new Kodi HTPC box?
details
I would like to replace my current, old, busted, HTPC set up. The USB ports no longer work. The dvd drive barely opens enough to get place in the disc. It has gone through several moves and has been a bit abused. So, it is time to move on. I would like to stick with Kodi (formerly XBMC) and I would like to have a blu-ray drive, but otherwise, I am open to suggestions as to what the box should include, hardware-wise! Please help.

Looking for a good value in a 55"-60" TV
details
I don't need or want 3D (eye issues prevent me from seeing it!). Just a good quality, good value TV in this range. Smart TV would be good, but not required. Keeping it under $1000 would fit my idea of value, too.
I know there are at least twice as many opinions as there are people...

Anyone else bothered by the digital 'enhancements' on FXX's 'Every Simpsons Ever' marathon?
details

We're in day two of FXX's 12-day Simpsons marathon, where they're showing every single episode of the, starting with season 1 all the way through season 25. That's 552 episodes! As I write this we're in the second half of season three.
I've been enjoying watching these episodes, as there are plenty of classic moments I can quote verbatim -- "Dental plan! Lisa needs braces!" -- and I haven't seen some of these episodes in over 10, even 15 years. But one thing has... Read more →

http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/12/the-crap-on-cable/
Last week, our own Zach Honig spotlighted some of the weirder and more obscure cable channels that cable subscribers might find while channel surfing, including One America News Network and the American Heroes Channel. While I don't find every single channel on the list to be strange or redundant -- I happen to enjoy watching concerts on Palladia, for one thing... Read more →

What's the cheapest way to get HBO?
details
http://i.imgur.com/RlbQ4UE.png
Between new shows like like Game of Thrones, and older classics like The Wire (Greatest Show in the History of Shows™), Sopranos, Deadwood, and more, HBO has a lot of great content.
There's so much content, that a lot of us would be happy to pay HBO directly for access. Unfortunately, this isn't totally possible unless you sign up with an expensive plan from your cable provider.
Or is it?
The Wall Street Journal posted an interesting piece about how to get HBO... Read more →
