The hideous test tone...
...that is emitted by the microphone. This is presumably picked up by the speakers?
If you like your visual entertainment to leap out of the TV and in to the living room, the 3D-capable Samsung HT-C6930 home theatre kit may well be for you. And there are several other reasons why this system deserves serious consideration if you're after a state-of-the-art home cinema. Samsung HT C6930 Home Cinema Samsung's …
The worst part about 3D TVs in the home is that the screens are too small. I was testing a set in a local store using a demo of some live stage performers and everyone looked tiny. What I found was that the closer I got to the screen, the more lifelike their size appeared until I reached a distance of 1m at which point the visual effect was very good. At any distance further though the miniaturisation effect kicked in again.
3D works in the cinema because the screen is very large and almost fills your field of view. Shrink the screen and the 3D effect shrinks too so I can only conclude that you'll need a massive screen in your living room for 3D to actually produce a realistic image and by massive I think you're looking at one over 100" diagonal.
Of course, this all ignores the ridiculous high price for the active glasses with their inherent flicker (drove me nuts after a while) and the fact that the screen looks quite dim as a result of them but those are minor next to the scale issue.
"The only real distraction is the ghosting caused by cross-talk interference but it’s not as bad as I’ve seen on some other screens."
The ghosting is a function of the TV and goggles. It is caused either by an incorrect dark time or phase adjustment in the TV that does not match the requirements of the glasses.
Let's say I have MythTV (or something) installed on a back-end, can I stream media from there (CDs, DVDs, recorded TV) on this box? If I put a Blu-Ray in this, can I stream the media from there (assuming my home network is up to the job) to another system?
Unless the answer to both is "yes", then this really isn't worth £600. The fact it can't even support NTFS is a bit of a surprise, what about EXT4 etc?
