    I caught the humor anyway.... :D:lol:
    It's a joke based on the horsepower to support an 8K signal. ;)

    I'll have more stuff on 4K, etc. later today in this thread. It was great to meet dirtyblueshirt for sure. Thanks for being there.

    Winters,...
    I want something so major it'll require a whole transponder just for me !!

    As to $ on transportation- if your hotel is near the monorail, a three day pass is ca. $25......

    Erratum: My goal was to hit 3,000 posts by the start of CES, so I missed it by almost a week. Hopefully, only a few were obvious padding.....:sure:

    The cab ride we took was worth the price of admission ... Wouldn't get that on the monorail. :)

    The CES Halls were always very busy, and contained over 3700 booths according to the CEA folks. The final attendance is not official, but it appears a record 153,000 attendees were obvious onsite. Quite the success.

    Several onsite DBSTalkers had the opportunity to see Windows 8 at a demo. Rather than spend too much time with views or try to explain things...here are a number of photos - that might answer alot of questions (and maybe spawn a few new ones).

    From this attendees perspective...I was impressed by a few things, and underwhelmed by a number of others when it came to the UI.

    Both a PC (tablet) and tablet demo perspective were shared. Both UI user settings will be supported in WIN8.

    Upon our 2nd visit witha group of DBSTalkers, we were shown how nomad has progressed to date, as well as some things coming down the pike. We were asked not to share the future things specifically.

    That said, it would be fair to say that nomad will have future enhancments and added capabilities as it evolves going forward.

    As always, our hosts at their meeting room site were very informative and great to speak with just as they were last year at CES.

    Online information is available for Sharp 4K HDTV offerings, so we'll just share some photos of both the 4K and 8K HDTV's in their booth at CES 2012.

    This year, Samsung actually had a smaller RVU booth setup than the one we saw last year.

    Samsung had an impressive 55" OLED HDTV display.

    The Samsung booth photos are provided, with online information on their 4K, RVU, and OLED products online at the Samsung site.

    Thanks to the many people who helped make CES 2012 a great experience.

    First - it was great to have a team of DBSTalker folks on the ground, sharing information, insights, and personal time together.

    Second - a personal "thank you" to those who attended the DBSTalker Dinner. It was a great chance for new attendees and "veterans" to meet, talk, and share their experiences.

    Third - a special thank you to Earl Bonovich and Doug Brott for taking the time from their own busy schedules to add some one-on-one time and make this year special.

    Finally - Thanks to RichieRich for his personal efforts to make the stay fun and enjoyable...Stuart Sweet for his lightening-fast efforts on photo promotions to this thread...Draconis for saving a huge amount of navigational time through his scouting and advice...and Chris Blount for consolidating the information into the forum.

    We're all looking forward to doing this again at CES 2012.

    Yes, there are some Nice Enhancements coming down the Pike along with Fine Tuning what we currently have and maybe, just maybe something really Special if everything works out the way some of us hope it will.

    But The Future Of Nomad is just like a Box of Chocolates, you just Never know for sure what you are going to get!!! :D

    Thanks for the info! The Samsung LCD with an integrated receiver could be nice. Makes your wall mount a much cleaner install...
