    Dolby Atmos for Home Theater

    Yup. I just figured it out, though: Windows can't be configured for 5.1.2, nor does that Test function work with it. All I had to do was set my receiver to Direct and then play some actual Atmos content, and everything works.

    Dolby Atmos for Home Theater

    I have the Dolby Access app purchased and installed and setup on Win10 20H2 and have my RTX 3080 connected to my Onkyo TX-NR676 via HDMI. Under the properties of the sound device I have Dolby Atmos for Home Theater selected as the Spatial Audio. However, when I right click that device and choose...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    Anyone manage to do anything yet? I was logged in 30 minutes early, got kicked out twice, was eventually able to go through the Stormwind portal and then to the questgiver at ICC and got kicked out again. Haven't been able to do anything at all in the hour since then. The last couple launches...

    QNAP Question

    Right now I have a two bay QNAP NAS with 2x 4TB drives in RAID1. I want to replace them with 2x 12TB drives but I don't have anywhere to temporarily store the 4TB. I think I can still accomplish this but I want to make sure I have the process correct so I don't lose anything. If anyone has done...

    Issue w/ New Router

    Derp, Realtek's site had a newer driver than what my motherboard manufacturer's site had. All fixed with that.

    Issue w/ New Router

    No dice. Rather annoyingly, though, if I set it to 100 Mbps, it works perfectly. I don't see any router setting that would be doing this. Other gigabit devices work and my desktop works once it finally kicks into gear. Must be some weird incompatibility between the NIC and the router?

    Issue w/ New Router

    I just bought this: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Wireless-AX1500-Wifi-Router/dp/B07ZSDR49S And it works great except that it doesn't play nice with my desktop. My desktop has a Realtek 2.5G NIC and whenever I reboot, it takes 5-10 minutes to gain connectivity. If I look at the NIC in Control...

    Calibrating a Projector

    I just replaced my BenQ HT3550 with an Epson 3200 and prefer it in every single way except the most important one: the picture quality. I'm sure it can get close to the BenQ when properly calibrated, but the out of the box settings are garbage. I tried applying the settings from a couple reviews...

    Audio Crackling

    Just upgraded to Z490 and did a fresh install of Win10 and the audio is all messed up. There's very loud crackling/popping noises right when audio starts playing. Then it's fine during playback and for 10-20 seconds after playback stops, at which point it happens again. Googling this suggests...

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    But Z370/Z390 only support 8th gen and 9th gen. If Z490 supports 10th gen and 11th gen (which it's supposed to), that's the same as ever, and it'd last two years if 12th gen isn't out until 2022. But I guess nobody knows for certain right now exactly when things are going to be releasing. If...

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    Hasn't that been the case for a long time, that Intel boards work for two generations of CPUs? So this isn't any different. It would surprise me if Gen 11 and Gen 12 were still on track for whatever their original release windows were meant to be. People figured Gen 10 would be out Q4 of last...

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    Lame. I ended up pulling the trigger on a 10700k instead, from Newegg. It went out of stock about 10 minutes after I ordered, so good timing I guess.

    Is the 10600k not launching today? Absolutely no place has it. :(

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    I have a 6600k right now and have been weighing upgrading to either an R5 3600 on X570, with the intent to upgrade to a 4600 later this year, or to a 10600k on Z490. They'd cost about the same considering I'd need to buy faster RAM for Ryzen, but X570 boards have either been out of stock or have...

    Half Life: Alyx

    10/10 from IGN. I know a ton of people hate IGN, but they don't exactly hand those out like candy (only the 6th AAA game this generation to get a 10), so I'm excited. Stuck working until 5 though...
