jpr2's recent activity

  • zealots with an itching proselytizing ardor - rather tough to restrain an urge? The most troublesome PITA in w10 are the constant resets and impossible to contain/schedule mandatory updates, that ...
  • Replied in which GPU?
    my question is more of curiosity driven and a far shot maybe, but... which GPU your notebook uses? The general description of the series gives one of the: " Graphics Adapter: AMD Radeon R5 ...
  • indeed, or better... use the StartPage for such a search , just to be sure the results were not G'lized in any way :) - the above link brought over 2.5 million hits jpr2
  • such a stipulation will not in all probability be a part of US legal system anytime soon (if ever). From the EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) : " Privacy by Design Privacy by design ...
  • you're perfectly right, and IMO trying to find anything on Apple's Web is like running full speed, head-first into a wall :P . However, I'm already past such a research stage ... although based ...
  • FYI I've ceased to use it the very same day they introduced the new TOS. Moreover am avoiding correspondence with anyone of importance who were/are still using the G - as then all what we wrote ...
  • so pls. tell are you working for G or any of their subsidiaries? Because what you're saying really reads like a rather ardent defense of so very dubious business practices - where is the ethics in ...
  • Strictly speaking this is correct only for the new users. Such clauses were added to the TOS at a relative recent date. Those of us who were present at the nascent G's steps and started to use ...
  • well yes, but then it is just glancing over a surface things reprehensible. In most civilized countries a breach to the confidentiality of correspondence is punishable by law (and in the US I ...
  • excellent move with the Startpage, Ghostery is good too (also there are other such aids but... you got me puzzled here: as if you [rightly] object and dislike what the F is doing, then why to use ...
  • equally good TRUE hack - the Magic Lantern, or actually even better as ML is still an active ongoing project!! What OP calls "hacks" are just III-rd party, regular SW, jpr2
  • oh, I see: originally I intended to attach a different picture, where it is clear that the fan is Delta Electronics (or more probably its clone, as the original ones seem rather pricey) fan ...
  • sorry, I was pretty sure that this is already clear from the subject line and the message above :-O , but perhaps it wasn't. jpr2
  • When I'm browsing now through the US-oriented DVRs tech. specs there are four large information gaps: [1]  which type[s] of tuner[s] are built-in there; [2] what type of codecs are supported, [3] ...
  • yet it limits the end-users' freedom to their choices: with III-rd party DVR box (esp. if it is not tied up to a mandatory subscription scheme) they can in principle connect to any SATV (called ...
  • Replied in TiVo
    thanks a lot, this single magic keyword makes it a lot easier to start a serious digging - I've only glanced at it now, and it might take days if not weeks to go through that particular and... ...
  • well, guys - idea of cutting a hole in DVR is a total no-go (as stated in many posts already) for me: independently whether I rent or own the box in question :D there is a recent change in my goal ...
  • Replied in DVRs
    ou!! was it then a reason perhaps why SE was asking whether I own my DVRs? Are there state/federal regulations stipulating that end-users can't own theirs, and they are for renting only, or maybe ...
  • Replied in DVRs
    indeed, you're totally right: hundreds of channels and [almost] nothing to watch, which is esp. pertaining to the DVB-S (SatTV) ones. So the current explosion Satellite in FR is of very little ...
  • Replied in DVRs
    so, no surprises - as expected, our respective markets and the operation modes here and over there are very (perhaps even entirely ?) orthogonal. I'm not even able to identify here the brand names ...
