PCI-E is fully backwards and forwards compatible with respect to pin-out and data transfer. You can use a PCI-E 3.0 card in a PCI-E 1.0 slot, and it will work, just it will not have as high of a max transfer speed.
ARC allows it so that you can feed your receiver from your TV via the HDMI Input on your TV. So no, you are not using ARC anywhere if your CATV/DVD STBs are connected directly to the receiver.
Basically you need to make certain both your TV and Receiver support ARC, and then just enable it in...
This bootkit is awfully cool, and a problem with the fact that you have an externally accessible PCIe bus which allows you to have the system boot device firmware which can do just about anything.
Wonder if a similar bootkit can be done on non-apple motherboards that have thunderbolt.
Wireshark only sees what data is going over the network card. If you're using 127.0.0.1 then you need to monitor the loopback.
It sounds like your syslog server isn't setup correctly.
Weird, considering FireFox had dropped support for the win64 version of the firefox nightly builds a while ago.
Not certain where...
It looks like there is no OS on that switch. What you'll most likely need to find out there on the internet is a version of Broadcom FastPath that works with your device, and then have some fun getting it onto the device.
Although, it might not be that hard depending on what kind of flash it's...
Yes there is. I don't think most wireless chargers are even close to 95% efficiency, which means we want to go "green" with EV cars, but waste at least 5% extra power to charge them, which gets even worse as temperatures lower. Great idea, wait, no.
