    New beamer

    I just bought a new beamer, the JVC X5500, 3-4 generations after mine. I wanted to buy it already since a bit longer, came out this year in January, also because I wanted to have a 4K beamer.

    This newer model comes also with a lot higher luminosity, 1800 lumen, the 3D has changed drastically also, although I already thought that mine was nearly perfect, but mine was only the 2nd generation of 3D beamers, so a lot has happened in that section. This one also has eShift, which can make you 4K out of everything, but you can enable/disable it accordingly, depends if you like it or not, he said that some people f.ex. don't like it.

    I will get it in 2-3 days, probably gonna pick it up on Saturday.

    I then also bought a new mediaplayer, as my older Mede8er doesn't do 4K, so I bought the new Dune HD 4K HDR model, which I have already next to me, needs some time to set up, to work with my media library.

    I bought the beamer where I always buy my HiFi stuff, the guy is a professional, and really is great in what he does, plus I get awesome prices there. The 5500 is actually 4.200€, without 3D glasses, one pair is 150€, and he sold it to me for 3.600€ plus 2 pairs of glasses. The Dune he just gave me now to test, didn't have to pay yet. Plus their support is absolutely fantastic. I also bought last time a new lamp from him, which he gave me for the reselling price of 300€, usually they're between 350€ and 400€.

    So hopefully I can set it up the weekend and fully test it, somebody only has to help me lift it up, as that could be a problem lifting 20kg in the air Btw, the casing of the beamer is exactly the same than my older X30, nothing changed, and I think that's great, so I don't have to build another support.

    The Shield looks interesting. I hadn't realised they were making a media steamer. The only shield I knew about was the gaming tablet.

    Me too, thought the Shield was a gaming platform only. But you can not only play Android games, but you can download games from their catalogue, and stream them from your PC through GeForce Now, although you'll need an NVidia GPU, which I don't have.

    Sounds good. I will have to take a look. Sounds like they have got the idea from steam play. Although you can do that on an xbox one from a pc.

    Ok Google is the software from google where you give commands to the hardware. You have to say "ok google" then you make a question or order some actions.
    I don't know the real name of the software, but the commands it starts with "ok google". I saw it working in a friends house. He has one of those speakers with bluetooth that connects to laptop, bulbs, lights etc...

    That works fine, there's a button on the remote (and controller) to switch the microphone on, then you can say your commands.

    @Tiago. That's just like the Amazon Echo I posted the review for. Instead of OK Google you just say Alexa followed by a command. Works really well.
