Watched in the heat of the night again, still one of the best films ever made dealing with racism as it's subject.

Watched the wanderers again, THE BEST SOUNDTRACK Ever! and a bloody good film too.

The Nvidea shield is the best, the best hard wear for streaming Kodi media. Supports 4K as well.

All depends really, i stream sd and there is little difference, btw you cannot stream hd let alone 4k


NVIDIA SHIELD is an amazing Ultra HD streaming media player. It delivers the ultimate in picture quality with incredible 4K resolution in favorite apps like Netflix, YouTube, and VUDU, as well as the brightness, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR) in Netflix*. Add in rich Dolby Atmos or 7.1 surround sound,** and SHIELD delivers a true home theater experience. Or plug your headphones into your SHIELD controller or SHIELD remote for a private listening experience.

You cannot stream true HD, they call it that and for all intents and purposes it is in that you couldn't tell by naked eye but technically it isn't.


So they're lying then.......

What he means is they compress and reduce the bit rate so although it's 1080p it's actually not the same quality as say a blu ray, almost indistinguishable to the human eye though.

4k is amazing but takes a bit of getting used to, the picture is just too crisp.

You stick with your standard definition........... anything less than 720p is a waste of time......might as well watch a cam version

I,m not thick Nick ;-)

I said there is a clear and marked difference between hd and sd you and ifm are saying its barely noticeable to the naked eye, when the fact is it is incredibly notable to the naked eye.
