I finally picked up a new tv for my bedroom. Its a Samsung, UHD 4k, 43 inch. The wife and I are are having some trouble getting use to watching it. The resolution is great, but almost too great. All of our other Tvs are 1080. Anyone else having trouble adjusting? I thought the football games were great but movies seem to be the more diffficult to adjust too. 20191202_195305.jpg

Some guys here might not know what you are talking about. They still watch the local antenna channels on a 19" black and white. The one with a metal coat hanger for an antenna and a pair of pliers to grab the knob stud to change channels.

Do you mean I have to tell my wife to let go of the coat hanger, turn off the TV and get in bed?

How do you even see a 43" TV?

I know what you mean, I have a 12 year old 55" 1080 and when I'm somewhere else watching a movie it is so clear it seems like a home movie,has a whole different feel. Just looks weird to me

Just a hint to improving picture quality on any of the 1080 TV's........hook it up to an old antenna. Watching a NFL game on that picture quality will amaze you.

The standard signal from Cable and Dish basically suck. As does watching DVD's. Hook up a Blu-Ray player.

Not sure about the 4K and UHD TV's that Walleye posted though. I didn't think there was any 4K signals available yet.

I am in shock with the picture quality, and It was only about $275.
I hear a news item a while back about a school in Hawai'i offering a course remotely in a South sea location (Tonga?). The interesting part was not that they used cameras and a screen, but that they were doing it with holographic images.

Just think in a few years you may be able to watch holographic movies etc. Just think about how cool a live basketball game would be holographic projected in your livingroom.

I want my own holodeck.

Be Careful, those new "smart TV's" listen to everything that is going on in your house, and pass judgement on you.
