CAround the Bend? | Rigger's zone
Monday 16 June 2014 10:45PM
I've looked at both flat and curved screens in the local TV outlets and I'm disappointed with the overall bent results. Watching 4K (and why would you consider anything else if spending that kind of money on a 50" - 65" set) I struggled to see any real difference when viewing from 6 - 8 feet. What I did find irritating on the bender's was the significant increase of room reflections made even worse if viewed from one side, so much for the reduced reflection's claim! So we are back to the days when closing the curtains and just using low wattage table lamps was the norm to achieve a watchable decent picture, only now in order to watch an outstanding image without the room contents and family members playing a passive 'on screen' roll! Curved screens do not float my boat in any way. When I look at the large brick wall of my house from any angle it still seems strangely 'FLAT' So for me it's a definite no thanks. I'll stick out for a decent size FLAT OLED 4K when that one clever individual on the planet cracks the low yield issues!!

L.Dawson: Hi there, The answer to that question is yes and you may already be able to do it, but never known about it. You dont say which Humax PVR you have so here goes; on the back of the humax you should have a scart socket marked VCR, scart up this socket to the scart on the video (if you only have one just use it) marked decoder. With your video switched on and your tv in the kitchen on, select the video playback or monitor chan on that kitchen set which should be "0" or "8" Now! with your video select AV1/AV2/AV/EXT1/EXT2 or which ever INPUT relates to that scart you've patched into from the Humax. Select something from your library of recordings and commission play on the Humax. You should now be able to watch in the kitchen. Send me an sms on 07-957-855-647 if it worked.
