  • Scott, I don't hate wi-fi, I love it.  My 3 smart TV's, 3 Rokus, Plex media server, and laptop are all connected via wi-fi.  As malch pointed out, adding the second router (configured as a WAP) ...
  • I did the same.  My cable modem & main router are in my office at one end of my house, while my smart TV & Roku are at the other end.  I ran some Cat 5E cable down to the basement (ranch house), ...
  • When I bought a new laptop last year, I also wanted a matte screen.  I ended up getting a Dell Latitude (business model) from Dell Outlet.  Although it uses a TN screen (gamma change with viewing ...
  • Are you saying that merely changing your modem from the Motorola/Arris SB6121 to the SMC modem gave the the speed increase noted?  I'm really surprised that changing modems would make that much ...
  • Replied in Monitor / Tv
    Sky, yes the Roku is only used to capture the streaming video from the Plex server and feed it to the TV via HDMI (used to use composite video with my old CRT TV).  I download the separate ...
  • Replied in Monitor / Tv
    Sky, I've been using the free Plex Media Server software for several years now with great results.  I have a Roku connected to my Vizio smart TV (recent purchase) to access Plex.  They have ...
  • With a scale of 50, and 5 bars, that would be ~25, which doesn't sound bad.  However, the number of TCP connections depends upon how many apps you have running that access the internet.  So, ...
  • Sky, TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a standard that defines how to establish and maintain a network conversation over which application programs can exchange data.  I just checked my ...
  • I also use PntScrn for the few times that I need to capture something.  If you press PntScrn by itself, it captures the entire screen (as you noted).  However, if you press Alt-PntScrn, it ...
  • In addition to what Brian suggested, check to see that all your fans are working, particularly the power supply fan.  I had a similar problem years ago, and the power supply fan had stopped.  ...
  • Gary, I'm not quite sure what you're asking.  I also use Plex (have a dedicated server for it) and I love it.  If you're asking where you download the Windows app (Plex Media Server), below is a ...
  • Replied in help!!!
    You'll need to remove the hard drive from the old laptop.  Purchase a USB to SATA adapter such as the following ( http://www.amazon.com/Vantec-CB-ISATAU2-Supports-2-5-Inch-5-25-Inch/dp/B000J01I1G/ ...
  • Most computers have a boot device option when you turn it on.  Watch carefully when you turn it on and see if it says what key to press to get the boot options.  Alternatively, you could go into ...
  • While you should be able to install your old hard drives in your new computer (assuming they are SATA drives), you should expect to use them as data drives.  With a few exceptions, most programs ...
  • Tony, fortunately I haven't had to purchase any media for my Kodak 1400 yet, but in doing a Google search, I found a company that claims to sell both 8500 & 1400 media, and also says that they ...
  • Yes, I agree.  The simplest (and probably cheapest) option would be to pick up an HDMI cable to connect the monitor to the video card.  You should be able to pickup an HDMI cable in many stores, ...
  • Tony, while the ribbon is the same between the two models (8500 & 8600), the spools are very different.  To use the 8600 ribbon in an 8500, you would need to unspool the 8600 ribbon onto a blank ...
  • Unless I'm missing something, I don't see what advantage leaving the Spyder plugged in gives you.  I realize that your ambient lighting changes throughout the day, however unless you build a new ...
  • Normally, you would only connect the colorimeter when you're actually going to use it (calibrate your display).  I have an i1Pro spectrophotometer, and I leave mine in the carrying case until I'm ...
