  • Windows can handle two or more network interfaces just fine with DHCP. They just each have to be in a different IP subnet with each subnet having DHCP services. This isn't really a limitation as ...
  • Which raises an interesting question. I've seen multiple mentions at AVS Forum about using common colorimeters like an i1 Display Pro to calibrate TVs. All of these seem to involve "TV-specific" ...
  • Just wanted to say thanks for your response and the link to the Ars article. Hopefully others can benefit from them as I have.
  • My prespective... [Example A] Open an existing file and make some modifications to it. Now just let it sit there for say 3 minutes: hands-off keyboard & mouse. Now close the document window or quit ...
  • Just an FYI that in the current iOS Roku app the button on the bottom toolbar is called "Photos+" and not "Play on Roku". It even has a little moutain landscape photo for an icon. Once you tap it, ...
  • Thanks for pointing this out Rob. The OP mentioned "mirroring" in his original post and I kind of latched onto that term and Roku's 'Screen Mirroring' feature. In that context (mirror ...
  • Roku's own "screen mirroring" functionality is part of this app. But only if your device is Andrioid and the target computer you're mirroring to is Windows. See the link in my post immediately ...
  • D'oh! I never knew that. I'm embarrased to confess the only "option-viewed" menu item I was aware of is the Library entry in Finder's Go menu.
  • I think you may be out of luck twice over. Roku's native "screen mirroring" feature is not supported on anything Apple. https://support.roku.com/article/208754928-how-to-use-screen-mirroring-with-y ...
  • Can you elaborate on what 'save as' dialogue box you're referring to. I do not see one anywhere in TextEdit on my two Sierra machines. I looked after making changes to both a plain text file as ...
  • What you cannot do with TextEdit is: Open MyFile.txt Make some modifications to MyFile.txt Save as… MyFile-mod.txt (leaving MyFile.txt intact without any of the modifications) With TextEdit you ...
  • This post got me thinking about how I've been using the same set of computer speakers for what seems like forever. A quick Google search found them mentioned in a PC Magazine speaker roundup ...
  • Well I'll be... I never would have thought they'd be able to fit one in there even in the 27". I just assumed they'd all be 2.5" drives.
  • Are there any drives in that capacity neighborhood that are 2.5" form factor? I thought they were all 3.5" drives. I can't imagine Apple offerring anything, even the upcoming Mac Pro, with 3.5" ...
  • For the next couple of months I’m thinking the prudent course of action may be to just wait and see what iOS 11 and High Sierra bring. I’ve seen comments from iOS 11 beta users that its App Store ...
  • Just a follow up FYI for anyone that’s still concerned about what a full device restore might be like. It appears likely that you will *not* have to manually redownload your previously installed ...
  • Damn. I never knew this. That makes the prospect of a full restore an utterly excruciating experience. I've never needed one myself but I did go through it when my mom burned out her iPhone with a ...
  • While I don't necessarily agree with this sentiment, I think it's certainly valid and recognize it's likely the way a majority of Apple's users feel. The thing about this change is that app syncing ...
  • Replied in Replace UPS
    Once you get above the consumer/SOHO level of equipment, a vast majority of devices use RJ45 connectors for their serial interfaces. At least they did up until a few years ago while I was still in ...
  • The v12.7 update for iTunes that Apple dropped today seems to completely remove the App Store and app management functionality. Here’s what you see after you click through the license agreement: So ...
