  • Re: LG is now pushing ads to its TVs

    Another really good reason to buy an AppleTV 4K. With TV purchases these days, YOU are becoming the product and is the big reason I hate onboard Apps. As you say, a very sad day. With most TV technology so far we've been able to skip ads, so they needed to find other ways to monetize. I think the Netflix, Amazon, Disney and Apple models are the only way forward for quality content. It does kill me how much Sky charges per month, but we're paying for all those expensive Footballers and F1

  • Re: Eclipse - Disney+ app

    I feel your frustration - it annoys me too for other reasons, but as others say, the AppleTV 4K blows away the onboard processors of even the latest LG Alpha processors. The Alpha9 (Eclipse V1 is an Alpha 7) is a 4-core 1Ghz processor with 2 GPU cores. The ATV with A10x fusion has 6 cores at 2.38Ghz and 12 cores in the GPU - ideal for processing Dolby Vision HDR etc. Obviously, the primary quality constraint is what the content provider streams at, but you'll always get a better outcome through

The 4K Sky Q box is notorious for not being externally controllable. There was never a PUC option on my BV11 either (although there was for Sky HD). What can you control? There's basic control via the TV, but I can't change channel, for example. [/quote] Sure as a sure thing. Sky Q box on my Eclipse

    [quote user="moxxey"] It's a 4-year-old TV. If someone wants to spend good money on that now, fair enough. But please stop posting in late 2020 that it somehow matches the quality of the GX, which is 2019 technology, yes. [/quote] No. Just fed up reading made up rubbish designed to make yourself feel good. Its moved onto exaggerating the age of a product released in September 2017. Remember, we've had to listen to how a Beovision 65" Plasma with 1080P is magnificent for the

    [quote user="Sandyb"]Come 4 years time, micro LED will be a bit more of a practical proposition.[/quote] Nailed it. Micro LED is the next refresh cycle if you already have an Eclipse or OLED panel today. Not sure it'll be 4-years however. Your 2021 iPad and MacBook Pros will undoubtedly have it and I can't imagine TV's are too far behind.

  • Re: Eclipse 2nd Generation Finally launched

    [quote user="Sandyb"]Well, it is a 2016 panel, effectively and relatively 'old' in terms of OLED technology. Plus you don't get some app support, such as Apple TV and so on.[/quote] For a TV that was not shipping until May of 2017, I'm struggling to see what is 2016 about it. With the same argument, you could say the GX is 2019 technology. And you are right about the OLED technology, the real updates were in the A9Gen3. Also, Genuine Top Tip: You want AppleTV, get an Apple

    I assume the options will be TuneIn, Deezer and Spotify as native clients. I've not heard them doing a deal with Apple for Apple Music. However, you'll get Apple TV+ through WebOS.

  • Re: Eclipse network question

    [quote user="moxxey"] [quote user="mawheele"] Have to say its funny: When Avant and Eclipse first arrived, I kept reading on this board that the BV10-65, with a picture processor from 2005 (BS3) was just as good or better than the the 4K picture and sound coming from a BeoSystem 4 based system and then even the Eclipse. Now that a TV with an extra 2 cores of graphic processing and 3 minor extra capabilities arrive, it makes the Eclipse obsolete. Man!!!! Also, lets not forget the

    [quote user="moxxey"] [quote user="Emil Jensen"] LG And wifi is a very known problem, [/quote] The Eclipse has a 2017 panel, which means the processor is from 2017 and 4K processing and so on. I told you this is one of the many reasons I wouldn't buy an Eclipse. It's like buying a 2017 MacBook Pro for future use and then wondering why it stutters editing 4K video etc. [/quote] Really? The A9 processor is an upgraded OLED dedicated processor, with 4 step noise reduction

  • Re: Beovision Eclipse in late 2020, New version coming?

    B[quote user="Michael"][quote user="mawheele"] Since the only real benefit of the CX glass is for improved gaming - its actually less good than Eclipse V1 for movies - the primary development areas would be the pass-through of better sound support, eg. Atmos. But that would be a lot of dev work and I'm unsure they have the budget. But lets see. The shift to HDMI 2.1 will make it possible. [/quote] How would CX be worse? [/quote] Brightness across large part of spectrum.
