We came across an article written by Jason Hirschhorn posted at LinkedIn titled 7 Deadly Sins: Where Hollywood is Wrong about the Future of TV.
It is a very well written, thought provoking article with a great deal of supporting data.
Lots of charts.
This is our re-tweet/re-linkedin of Jason’s post, with a bit of our own reaction to and discussion of his points.

We have spent a lot of time discussing high vs low quality audio on the show lately.
A full feature on the subject is still in the works and should be available sometime in the summer.
But along the way we have had a few of you tell us that you still listen to Vinyl on turntables.
At the same time we have seen a few companies reintroduce turntables to the market so figured why not take a listen and more specifically introduce some younger ears to how we used to listen to music back in the day.

It’s that time of year again.
The time when television executives clean the slate to prepare room for the new shows that will debut next fall.
Also the time when you get to go through your scheduled or recurring recordings, your season passes, and clean out the ones that have been cancelled.
Every year something gets cut too early.
Hopefully one of your favorites isn’t on that list.

There has been a lot of talk about the HDR content for our new 4K TVs.
There have been a lot of questions too.
We decided it was best to go to a well respected source for some answers.
On this podcast we speak with Roland Vlaicu Vice President of Consumer Imaging at Dolby and we discuss Dolby Vision.

Most of us want to preserve the life of our home theater investments.
Some, who want to upgrade, may not.
For those, do the exact opposite of what we talk about.
For the rest of us who want to protect our hard-earned investment, to make sure our televisions to last as long as possible, there are a few simple things to remember to make sure you get the most hours you can from it.
Most of these apply to any piece of electronics you have in your theater: receivers, DVRs, Blu-ray players, projectors, you name it.
