“I am looking to put my movie titles onto my Drobo 5n and pointed my dedicated Mac mini running Plex Server and running Plex Theater, that’s connected to a 4×4 matrix switch that plays to all my TVs in my house. Once I have all my movies uploaded in the right format, I would like to be able to play them on any device (mainly my TVs, or my 3 iPhones and 3 iPad Minis.) My movies are DVD and Blu-ray (most with digital copy). Can you help me? Thanks!”

Rip Blu-ray and DVD movies to AC Ryan Player for watching

Sep 05, 2014 06:31 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray

AC Ryan PlayOn HD Full Network Media Player is the best Media player I have had so far. I use it for storing all my Movies, Music and Photographs which I can scroll through within seconds. AC Ryan Player claims no other media player supports as many file types. Video playback is good, and it has no problems with a range of standard-def and HD files including DivX, H.264, SRT subtitles and a full HD M2TS Blu-ray rip. Audio support is even better with HDMI or digital audio pass-through for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, Dolby TrueHD and AAC 7.1 plus stereo downmix of all except DD Plus.

Watch The Avengers Blu-ray on Vizio 70″ M-Series 3D Smart LED HDTV in 16:9 display

Diana Joan

Sep 04, 2014 03:57 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray, TV

I bought my very first 3D TV The M701d a week ago at Costco. It is the second largest LED TV in the M series for 2013/2014. The 2D picture looks great and it also has a very nice deep rich 3D quality picture. But right away I noticed some cross talking on the bottom part of the screen when I watched John Carter and The Hobbit, mostly when there was subtitling. I saw it really bad when watching Wreck-It Ralph last night. Depending on the depth of the 3D image, the cross talking is extremely noticeable on the bottom half of the screen. Watching a 16:9 movie, like The Avengers, is almost unbearable. It is a movie in Blu-ray disc.

Vizio 70" M-Series 3D Smart LED HDTV

As many Blu-ray players don’t support 3D playback, you may choose 3D Smart LED HDTV like Vizio 70″ M-Series to watch 2D/3D Blu-ray movies keeping 3D effect like me...

How to get 3D Blu-ray onto your BenQ W1080ST projector for playback

Diana Joan

Aug 26, 2014 06:45 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray

I’d consider myself a home entertainment enthusiast, as such I’m quite finicky when it comes to audio and video quality. I would happily drop out my LED TV and replace it with the BenQ W1080ST. The W1080ST delivered high quality and bright video, for as long as you were not shining a direct light at it.

And a few days before, I’ve purchased many 3D blu-ray movies, I wonder if my BenQ W1080ST projector directly play 3D blu-ray with 3D effect keeping? Is it necessary to hook up a Blu-ray player to it? I only have two options to hooking it up to a blu-ray player: S-video or that yellow video plug. No optical or DVI or HDMI plugs. I would really like to know before I go and spend a lot of money on a Blu-ray player.
