Watch Tom from California Comments

Tom wants to know how much better 4K Blu-Ray is over standard blu-ray. Should he upgrade? Leo says that 4K is 4 times more resolution than standard Blu-ray, but the big difference is the higher dynamic range (HDR). The colors are bolder, the blacks are blacker, and viewers can see more detail in extreme brightness and low light. But everything in the chain has to support 4K. The TV, the cables, the player. But Leo believes we're finally at the end of the road for physical media. So if anyone wants to upgrade to 4K for one last copy, do it because they want the HDR upgrade. If that's not important, the standard blu-ray is fine. 

Watch Johnny from Atlanta, GA Comments

Johnny's church needs a way to show hymn lyrics, sermon notes, and bible verses to the entire congregation in a 4,000-foot sanctuary after the church reopens. Leo and Scott agree that he won't want a TV to show it because a 98" TV would cost in the tens of thousands of dollars, while a projector capable of projecting to 100" or larger is very affordable. Scott says he will also want to get an ambient light rejecting screen to help during the daylight hours. Scott also recommends Johnny go to ProjectorCentral.com and check out their church projection buyer's guide.

Watch Larry from Petaluma, CA Comments

Larry has 12-year-old florescent backlit TV and it's time to upgrade to 4K. It's in a surround sound system with a Denon receiver and he would rather not upgrade that as well. Leo says there is an "upgrade cascade" that happens when there is a home theater system. If an AV system drives video, then users have to upgrade it. But if it's just running the audio, they'll be fine. Just use the optical out on a new TV. Upgrade the ROKU box to 4K capable. But what's even more important is the HDR support 4K brings. Leo adds to take the Denon and plug it into the 4K TV along with a device and see what the TV is seeing. It'll likely be 1080p60, not 4K. 

From Mike in the chatroom - HDMI 2.0/HDCP, which is supported by most current products, will do 4K.

Watch Linda from Los Angeles, CA Comments

Linda wants to know how to backup her iPhone text messages and print them out? Leo says to go into the settings on the iPhone and look to see that messages are being stored on iCloud. She can email messages, saved by conversation. Tap and hold, copy and then paste into an email message. She can also print messages directly from a Mac.  Leo also recommends eCamm Phone View.

Watch Kathy from Southern California Comments

Kathy's daughter got a new job and she needs remote internet access. How can she do that without tethering to her phone? Leo says tethering her phone is probably the best option out there. But she could get what's called a MiFi card, which will provide cellular data and a wifi access point for up to five different devices. Contact the wireless carrier.

Watch Chris from Burbank, CA Comments

Chris lives in a condo and he wants a good soundbar that won't drive the neighbors nuts. Leo says that the low-frequency stuff from a subwoofer tends to go right through walls. He can get soundbars with subwoofers, even wireless ones. And they provide a richer sound from that soundbar. And there's a soundbar for every budget. Vizio is a great performance price for the money. Under $300. He can even get one supporting Atmos at Home. Klipsch is another brand. 

Watch Paul from Columbus, OH Comments

Chris has a home theater system with a balancing mic to adjust the quality of his system for his home. Leo says that is a great thing to be able to do, especially if he will add speakers over time. So if you add a piece of furniture or a subwoofer, definitely rebalance the system. 

Watch Ron from Charlotte, North Carolina Comments

Ron wants to know if there's a better camera app than the Samsung camera app. Leo says that Google's GCam is one. But it's just a generic camera. The Samsung camera can take advantage of a lot of features of a phone camera itself. But there are hundreds of camera apps on the Google Play store.
