I'll have to wait longer for XIM support (XIM4).

I just couldn't hold out any longer.

The HDMI-IN doesn't have passive / pass-through which means I had to play tech support every time my wife wanted to watch TV or the in-laws came over.

Finally got my Onkyo TX-NR818 out of the shop and hooked the speakers back up.  Plugged in a BluRay and what happens?  No Dolby.  Say wut?!?!  My entertainment hub was quickly turning into worthless.  Plugged my old $100 Sony BR player back in and voila... .beautiful picture and sound.  No to mention it has Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, Netflix, etc.  My wife looked at me and was like, "Why did we get this again?"

I said, "Good question."

Disconnected it. Sold it.  Picking up a PS4 as soon as I get a chance.  I have a great gaming PC so I won't miss much by not having a XB1.  Sad day for me.  The poor gaming performance was the straw that broke the camel's back too.

So long, MS.  It's been a great 2 generations.  I hope you fix all your issues.... maybe I'll give you another look this generation after some of those have been addressed.

I was wondering if any AV folks out there were going to have an issue like I would....sorry it didn't work out for you.

great choice you made there

i also made the switch from the xbox360 to the ps4, and all i can say is that i dont regret it the least
multiplayer works great, and so does the interface
those statements that ps3 lacked in multiplayer experience compared to the xbox dont hold any water for the ps4

Yea - its been a while.  Ever since graduating, moving, doing the wife/father thing.... I had much less time to game.  Not to mention, my XIM2 broke and I just couldn't fix it.  Ended up selling my 360.  I've been lurking though.... anxious to get back into gaming but I'm not touching consoles until XIM4 is ready to roll.

So yea.... I'm sort of back.  Once I get my hands on an XIM4, I'll be back much more.

Good to see the progress Ob, Mist, and the others have made.  Been rooting for these guys.  Ob is once of the coolest / nicest guys and his product is just genius.

I wouldn't be surprised if Razor has made at least 1 attempt to acquire his awesomeness.
