    Xbox 360 as a Windows Media Extender

    I have a few questions about using an Xbox 360 as a Windows Media Extender. 1: Can it stream 1080p content? 2: Can it stream a Blu-Ray disc that is playing on the Windows PC? 3: Can it stream all video streaming services off the PC if there is no native support on the 360? 4: Also...

    Hauppauge TV Tuner Cards: Which one allows you to receive QAM and ATSC simultaneously

    I am looking for one of these cards that will allow me to run my coaxial cable to receive QAM channels as well as connect my ATSC antenna simultaneously so that I don't need to switch them back and forth. Or is there some kind of adapter I can use? Thanks!

    Recommendations for home viewing of medical imaging

    Great! I'll look into the Eizo PVAs. Haha, I'm not planning to use it for actual patient care, so no worries there, just for my own personal training. We use Barco's at the hospital, so I don't need to shell out that kind of money. Just looking for a step up over my TN gaming panel. The only...

    Recommendations for home viewing of medical imaging

    Hello, I am looking for a 21.5-24" LED backlit monitor that would be good for viewing X-rays/CTs/MRIs. The monitor would be for home use. Would an IPS panel provide the best image quality considering black/white/grey color variations will be pretty important? Any recommendations for particular...

    Excellent news! So you can change the channel with the keyboard and can set recordings using the guide?

    Computer won't start when graphics card inserted into PCI-E slot

    I bought a new PSU (OSZ 700w) and it still wouldn't power on. I've now tried a brand new PSU & graphics card, so I'm assuming it's the board. Btw, PNY (the brand of my nvidia 8800gt) replaced my card even though I'm pretty sure it wasn't broken. Good company. I've gone ahead and started the...

    Comcast DTA & Windows 7 Media Center

    Yeah, you are right. My understanding is that I need to purchase a certified MCE IR blaster (I purchased the non-MCE Hauppauge card), so that's why I can't get the digital adapter to set up in MC. And even if I do purchase a MCE-certified IR blaster & remote and get the DTA set up, it would just...

    Comcast DTA & Windows 7 Media Center

    Okay, so Comcast made the digital switch and I'm using the digital adapter. Now I have to leave my hauppauge wintv-1600 analog tuner set to channel 3 & must change channels using the Comcast remote. My IR receiver (that came w/ the tuner card) is plugged into the card, and I have run the IR...

    Computer won't start when graphics card inserted into PCI-E slot

    Hi, thanks for the reply. The PSU is also 2 years old. Is it possible for only the PCI-E slot to fail on a motherboard or only the graphics card connector to fail on the PSU? I don't have any other problems on the computer.

    Computer won't start when graphics card inserted into PCI-E slot

    I had been using an Nvidia 8800GT 512 mb card for about 2 years until the other day. The computer did not recover from Sleep mode. Whenever I unplugged the graphics card and used the onboard video, I was able to boot the computer. However, when I reinserted the card, the computer would no longer...

    Hit and miss with DD5.1 with AC97

    I really don't know much more than the control panel options for configuring audio on my PC, so forgive me. I am using Vista Ultimate x64, and my motherboard is using AC97. The only time I can get Dolby Digital 5.1 output is when I'm using Media Center and watching HDTV. However, whenever I play...

    Itching to purchase an eee PC, need some general advice

    It's my understanding that the $400 4G (with Linux) has a better battery and expandable RAM, while the 4GX has the same battery as the Surfs. Are all the 4G Linux versions guaranteed to have expandable RAM?

    Itching to purchase an eee PC, need some general advice

    I want to preface this by saying that I intend to use the eee PC solely for light internet browsing and MS Office 2007. That being said, I am planning on purchasing the $350 4G Surf and installing Windows XP Professional on it. What I am debating on is whether I should buy the $400 eee PC 4GX...
