Does anyone know what Samsung are going to do with their Apple integration, Apple are known to support Dolby Vision with their iTunes movies but Samsung's lack of it means one of the two will have to buckle somewhere...

I'd imagine that it would be no different to how it is whenever you now access anything with Dolby Vision HDR on a Samsung TV and that anything you access that has Dolby Vision will be portrayed using HDR10? This is how any device not compliant with Dolby Vision acts if able to portray HDR10. The same goes for HDR10+ content accessed via Amazon onboard LG TVs. You just get the HDR10 layer and not HDR10+. Dolby Vision isn't a requirement for Apple TV and is only needed in order to get Dolby Vision HDR. Samsung don't have to include support for Dolby Vision in order to include Apple TV and Dolby Vision compliance isn't a requirement for Apple TV.

According to Just Watch Sorcerer is on AppleTV
JustWatch
I wasn't a fan of it TBH, a nodded off part way through as it was a bit too slow for my taste, but did catch the bridge scene

Just Watch is highly recommended website/app for finding films and shows and what they're available on. (I'm not affiliated with them).
You can also buy or rent it via Amazon Video:
https://amazon.co.uk/Sorcerer-Roy-Scheider/dp/B078TD8BP5/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2F7Q03R440Y3H&keywords=sorcerer&qid=1554806299&s=gateway&sprefix=sorcerer,aps,135&sr=8-2


Wasn't this film discussed in a previous Podcast last year when the 40th Aniversarry Blu-ray was released?

Thanks gents and looking forward to all the planned hardware reviews which will get me through Easter. I assume they will be on YouTube as previously mentioned by Phil. I'm limited to 55 screens as I do not want any TV dominating the living room ( as does SWMBO ).

How do you manage to watch 55 screens simultaneously? This seems a bit of an extreme measure to stop any one screen dominating the room :confused:

Chaps, on a previous recent podcast you mentioned that you were interested in finding something to keep your screen and equipment clean. I’ve not found anything better than this product ROR Residual Oil Cleaner ROR Optics Cleaner - Residual Oil Remover - distributed by Newpro UK Ltd
I use it on my SLR lenses and displays. Absolutely brilliant product.
