    Streaming Device Perforance (Firestick sucks)

    My fire TV stick has also been having some issues lately, particularly with Netflix. I just upgraded the router, and switched between 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz and I continually get freezing video through Netflix.

    Warm? Hot? [O]uch? G3258/PC Mate MC Deal

    Would this be any sort of upgrade from an AMD Phenom II X2 (unlocked 2 cores, so I guess its an X4? Haven't kept up with AMD's naming scheme)

    Looking for a new reciever

    They probably cleared them out (or your BestBuy never had them) but they have been clearing out the old stock (1712) for $200 or less. Not certain it meets your criteria but thought I would let you know. Taken from slickdeals..and according to someone on slickdeals: SKU: 2166099

    Dell U2412M

    Apologies, let me clarify. I only want to game on a single monitor. I would like a dual or more setup when I am not gaming. (1) In a multi monitor setup, is gaming as simple as firing up the game on the main monitor with a single or multi GPU setup. (2) I would like the GPU to be concentrating...

    Dell U2412M

    Are there ways to just game on one of the screens if in a multisetup. Originally, I was set on a PLP setup but its just too expensive I saw a comment on someone saying that it shifts things around when switching to gaming on his central 30" and then going back to the desktop. Is this true?

    Why HP + 2 LG's. Why not Dell? How are the dot pitch across those monitors?

    With that many subs, I guess you can eliminate the bass nulls in the room (provided that it's not a large room) ;)

    HTPC Component Advice

    I didn't see much discussion here about the Receiver. What speakers are you driving anyways that made you want to go from that $40 amp you chose earlier?

    Low-latency receiver

    I wish these guys would focus more on quality parts for sound and video reproduction rather than Airplay this, and Bluetooth that. Even the GUI sometimes is lacking (I have heard good things about Pioneer's GUI). No good input from me, but I guess I somewhat share your pain.

    Advice on 5.1 speakers

    How do you feel about your sub? If you are happy with your sub, then why not look for a 5.0 system rather than a 5.1 system? Also, from what your links point to, I am guessing you have a budget of only $100 for 5.0/5.1 system? ....and take that 90 watts per channel with a grain of salt or w/e...

    will you be getting Ivy Bridge?

    I think I too will wait for Haswell. Right now, the focus for my is a new GPU and/or PLP setup

    and I thought splitting the LFE signal like that will end up with a -3db loss as well... What AVR are you attaching this sub to?

    Backlight bleed opinions

    An inherent flaw I could not live with for my television and that's why I got a plasma (knowing its inherent flaws). I haven't updated my monitor in years (going on 5 now), and I am afraid its going to be difficult to buy something that will have BLB, flashlighting and/or clouding.

    Did I just get hacked? What do I need to do?

    Yeah, It is good that you noticed this. I would also look up how mobile IP works as it may explain a little more about these IP address. My guess is that is where your "home agent" resides (TX)? Someone more knowledgeable than I can correct me.

    [Guide] How to remove the anti-glare(AG) coating from a Dell U2312HM LCD

    Has dell used the same anti-glare coating over the years or has it been more aggressive? The reason I ask is I have a Dell 2208 at school that obviously has antiglare coating on it (i have a gateway FHD2400 at home) and wanted to know if it would be very similar to a u2412m or a u3011

    Unfortunately. This is the one thing that annoys me. And no, Wage. I was not being sarcastic. I was interested in the topic but I am not considering a HDTV. I would like a monitor and thought the u3011 may be one but it is just stretching my budget. If I am going to plunge, it better be good...

    I know it has been said already but would like to say it one more for that +1 effect, why not push it back further? Do you have a 24" deep desk that you can't push it back further (24" is for exaggeration purposes)? Goodluck with whatever you decide. Oh, what about getting an arm for it so...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Oops, my question was in regards to Autoexpand. Is there any reason why I should leave it off=default. Also with the property reservation=10%, napp-it wants me to give the size in GB/MB rather than percentage. Does that mean when I add more 2TB harddrives or actually upgrade a vdev to a...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Some months ago, I created a pool with 1 vdev (5-disk raidz). I recently purchased 5 more of the same drives as I was running out of space. The first vdev, I honestly don't remember what I did (patched zpool or exported pool from ZFsGuru) in order to get the ashift=12 for my samsung f4's. I went...
