    No reception for channel in WMC. But direct to TV is fine. OTA HD Antenna

    It sounds like a WMC issue and if so, a reinstall won't help. This is SiliconDust based, but it might get you headed in the right direction.

    EVGA SR-X problem

    Try booting the board with only CPU0 and minimal memory installed. What do you have plugged into your USB ports? See here for error codes and this SR-2 thread that goes through much of the troubleshooting, many things should be similar.

    Home-VOIP, security system and internet usage; managed or unmanaged switch

    Personal experience here. Compare fax codecs and performance between ooma and obihai (obihai with various VOIP providers) if fax is still important to you. No matter what you decide, do NOT port your number to ooma, choose google voice or ringto to port to and forward from there. Porting out...

    So I can't use the kindle I bought without wifi or an Amazon account?

    Calibre is what you are looking for. Open an Amazon account and you can email the .pdf's to the kindle or transfer via the USB charging cable and a laptop/desktop. You don't need to buy your ebooks from Amazon to use it. If you don't have wifi, I guess I don't understand why you would buy a...

    Asus RT-N66

    The best advice I can give you is to put a cheap USB powered netbook cooler underneath the replacement to keep the internals cool. The fan bearings wear out about every two years, so check on it once in a while. I also find helpful.

    Trying BOINC, Confused

    I don't have my linux box running right now, but from memory you need to hover your cursor at the top of the linux BOINC manager for those options to appear. In windows they are in the same place, but always visible.

    Trying BOINC, Confused

    Since you are just testing the BOINC waters, I would avoid managers and just use the BOINC client for now. Try out a few projects, but only run a couple at a time to narrow the range of issues until you are more familiar.

    F@H, Large Work Units for Server-class Available Now

    According to Joe_H, 8108 is set on the WS incorrectly. While listed as a beta project in Kasson's thread, it currently appears on both psummary and psummaryB and is set to go out to a minimum of 24 cores. Because of this, you can receive 8108 without using a beta flag until the WS is fixed.

    F@H, Large Work Units for Server-class Available Now

    That will get you P8106. <client-type v='bigbeta'/> will get P8106, P8108 and when released P8107 but FWIW the bigbeta flag is only officially supported for PG approved testers. (;);))

    fixing bent cpu pins.

    I agre with cyclone3d with the lighting and hands. I would also avoid buying one with bent pins. If you are going to try, a mechanical pencil with the lead removed is a good tool. I may have also been known to walk into a jeweler to have a 4P board fixed. That said, I have an ASUS P6X58D...

    I have no issue with that limit, but the project does not keep all available cores supplied with work regardless of settings. I have no desire for a large cache, it was just a final attempt to keep the cores supplied with tasks. The wind chills expected here tonight are again -25 to -35...

    Got it. Seems not to be ready for Vault status if it can't keep itself busy as the only running project. I'm out.

    Multiple mashing results in a max of 2*Core count, but I have only seen that when all current tasks were to complete withing the next 2 minutes. Left on its own, it struggles to keep 8 cores running and I have seen a max of 3 tasks ready to start even with large cache settings.

    Your experience seems to be different than my own. Running only this project, settings set for 1 internet connection/day plus 1 additional day of cache I cannot keep 8 cores occupied without continually mashing the update button.

    DC Vault 2

    I just figured out what caused the DRM on about 100 hours of recorded TV and movies in WMC7 to kick in making it unwatchable... Turning off HT for primegrid performance. Different cores = different computer, lock 'em down boys. Damn DRM on legit media; it is easier to just download the DRM...
