Blu ray Processing

Will the superior HQV processors contained in the newer blu-ray players provide better picture quality on older LCD televisions?

how to measure?

Potentially, but since PQ is partially subjective, it would be hard to really evaluate such subtle improvements (if any) IMHO. Upgrading the LCD is likely to make more of an impact IMO.

Agree, but in addition...

to what Pedro mentioned, the video processor in BR players will differ from brand to brand, and especially will differ when comparing low-end models to high-end. A high-end BR player from OPPO, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, etc, will more than likely contain a better processor than the $39 one at Walmart. The same applies to TVs, where the better TVs have better video processors. You probably won't find the same video processor from a $1500 Samsung or Sony in a $499 Dynex.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
