    Did I buy a mobo with no 5.1 audio??

    I asked about this before too, there is an adapter you can get apparently for the front panel I/O connectors on the motherboard. https://hardforum.com/threads/motherboard-only-has-3-audio-outputs-but-apparently-supports-8-channels-does-a-pci-bracket-or-case-extension-exist.2010051/#post-1045003087

    Razor Kishi Game Controller for Android Phone (USB-C) $30 bucks (normally like 60-70)

    I found the d-pads to be really mushy on these, which killed a lot of potential use cases for emulation.

    It's really damning that none of the internet's talking heads are bringing up how AWFUL Nvidia's drivers have become

    Auto HDR and atmos audio work fine for me. I might have the 1second dropout occasionally, don't even think it's due to the Nvidia drivers tbh versus windows itself or the AVR. I haven't played an atmos game in a while, they barely exist :*( but when I did I didn't get dropouts for the longest...

    After cutting the cord from DirectTV...

    Plex is a good option for recording OTA. It costs $120 for the lifetime pass which unlocks recording though (and so much more)

    WTB: Old tablets, ~11 inches or so

    Hmm, might be overkill for what I'm doing but tempting. I've always found Windows tablets (x86 based) to be better than Android. I will let you know. edit: all set. Also, why does SamirD always like every post around here lol

    WTB: Old tablets, ~11 inches or so

    Looking for some tablets that will just display some ipcam feeds. H265 and below support is ideal. Doesn't need to hold a charge, but I would prefer it lasts at least a minute or so in case the cord gets yanked accidentally lol. Ideally I would prefer multiple tablets from the same seller to...

    First world problems...(to keep or sell?)

    Are you sure you won't be using it? 60 hrs a week is a lot but there can still be time for gaming imo, and you might need the relief after a hard days work.

    No thread about the framework laptop?

    Thank you. Do you ever use the screen outdoors? Do you think it's bright enough? I'm very tempted. I don't really need and part of me wants to wait for v2 but part of me also thinks it might be a while, plus I bet the resellability of this thing will be great. And if they come up with a new...

    No thread about the framework laptop?

    How is the trackpad? Is it easily replaceable if it goes out? The trackpad on my Dell 9360 slowly went out and I couldn't even replace it. Dell did not care at all since it was out of warranty. The part I found off Aliexpress was obviously not original and didn't click right. Oh and then...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    Both. The trend I noticed is claiming your device has the hardware and that HDMI 2.1 will come in a future update, then if that update ever arrives it's gimped HDMI 2.1 due to the hardware

    Man everyone is so mean here. I just wanted to just check in on how this game is doing.

    Playstation VR Thread.

    They should've done a Wii U style wireless technology imo. The lack of wire on the quest makes things so much better.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    Yeah, one of the first things I usually do for all games when I hit the limit is download a mod that removes/increases it.

    WD 18TB Red Pro 7200 Rpm, $251 at Amazon

    My packaging looked exactly the same, I was shocked but ain't complaining, I definitely plan on utilizing it (I think I'll cut it in sections and use it in smaller boxes though.)

    Horizon Forbidden West

    Looks like gyro support is there! Good news, I could not aim with the PS4 version at all so I waited for PC. Now I'm not sure if I'll wait or not haha.

    What are you guys using for a router that you love?

    I have the Deco x20 and I really like it. I kinda hate that I have to use an app for most of the functionality (online GUI is pretty much just read only) but it's blazing fast and great coverage. I have the access points hardwired to ethernet though. I've had it for like ~8 months maybe and not...

    DeWALT 20V Max tool + 20V PowerStack Battery Starter Kit Starting @ $129 + Tax

    You can with Home Depot apparently because they itemize the receipt. Slick deals calls this "hacking the deal" Though since Lowes had the 2 battery deal I'm now just going to return one of the tool combos I bought, and likely keep the other one since I need the charger for a total of 3...

    DeWALT 20V Max tool + 20V PowerStack Battery Starter Kit Starting @ $129 + Tax

    Lowes is now selling 2 of these batteries with a free tool. Better deal if you want certain items like the circular saw or jigsaw. Pickup only though. https://www.lowes.com/pd/DEWALT-20V-MAX-DEWALT-174-POWERSTACK-8482-Compact-Battery-2-PK/5012913071 edit: I neglected that the lowes deal does...

    price changed to $299 - dead - Gamestop Pro Members - Samsung 980 PRO 2TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 Internal V-NAND Solid State Drive with Heatsink for $209

    Finally a use for my gamestop gift card! Don't really need it, already have one but without a heatsink (paid a lot more for it too) But at least I can finally toss this gift card and maybe just sell the drive.

    Yeah none of that seems to work for me unfortunately :( I tried double clicking and open with > photos. I never go to the photo app and manually browse photos, but all 3 options don't work for me.

    Forgot to mention (sorry!) that Paypal has 12% cashback if you order from Western Digital, making this even slicker.

    DeWALT 20V Max tool + 20V PowerStack Battery Starter Kit Starting @ $129 + Tax

    I ended up getting the hand grinder and circular saw. Thanks! I think I'll probably return one of the batteries too, unless even the battery price is a really good deal?

    Plex server: NAS vs PC

    Looks like we have a similar dilemma, including the same drives lol. Unless I get a Nvidia Shield or something I need Plex for OTA recording. I also run Blue Iris on it. I've always done things pretty basic when it comes to networking and servers, etc. Is there a preferred way to share the...

    I am uneducated on windows 11... What's up!

    I don't know about ctrl-shift-escape, but they made things a lot slower to do. For instance, if you right click a file you only get a limited menu of possible options, until you hit 'show me more' or something like that and you see the typical functions from past windows like rename, etc...

    https://slickdeals.net/f/15605173-2x-wd-gold-16tb-wd161kryz-for-540-or-less#commentsBox This might be a better deal. Sadly I just bought and already shucked two 14TB drives from western digital on a similar discount a few days ago, but this isbetter. Bought this anyway, going to try to return...

    I am uneducated on windows 11... What's up!

    Yeah Auto HDR is the only thing I can think of. HDR in regular windows actually looks okay now too, so you don't have to constantly switch. Other than that, eh not much. Things are now more of a giant pain in the ass, for example switching my sound configuration is a lot more clicks, opening...

    Horizon Forbidden West

    I'm waiting for PC unless there is KB/M support. I just couldn't play the first one on PS4 more than a few hours due to how dependent it is on aiming, and honestly it felt like a PC RPG game with the interface, RPG elements, etc.

    Does anyone know if KB/M will be supported in this one?

    Oculus Quest 2

    I have an Nvidia card. Truthfully I didn't play around with it too much, it did not feel laggy or with graphical artifacts, it just felt choppy / microstuttery. I don't have the problem with ALVR which is also wireless. I'll try again. I also just discovered my mobo does not have a usb-c port...

    Oculus Quest 2

    I have the Deco x20 which is WiFi 6 and fast. Don't think it's possible to ever theoretically hit cord speeds on WiFi, and I don't need to as it's capped to <100mbps I believe (at least I set it in that for ALVR.) As I said ALVR works well and I bet Virtual Desktop would if I paid for it...

    Oculus Quest 2

    I got this headset from the Walmart refurb deal (which appears to keep coming in and out of stock) Really nice playing games without a wire and local on the device. I did try Air Link but it was pretty choppy (apparently a known Windows 11 issue?). However, I got ALVR sideloaded and that runs...

    GPU Mining Cases (1300W PSU + Case + CPU/mobo combo) - $550

    So I haven't been doing any hardcore mining since around 4 years ago, I remember having usb 3.0 risers that were powered from sata. Are you saying I should not do this in the future? Or at most, only use one riser per series of sata connectors coming from my PSU? So if I have 6 sata power ports...

    First HT

    LOL what. Anyway, nice setup. I don't think you're missing much not having surrounds imo. They're nice but while watching a movie I feel they barely get used. Not worth the clutter. Gaming on the other hand is a different story..

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    Turns out I'm wrong. I found this video which showed me how to change my receiver's display. When set to show my output channel information (such as 2:30 in the video) the front presence section is blank in unsupported atmos games like Rocket League and Tetris Effect. It shows up in Immortals...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    It's been a while since I played anything substantive on my home theater (2-3 months) but when I did almost all games seemed to support NATIVE atmos. This started around maybe 4-5 months ago, and I've been on the insider version of Windows for this time and the behavior consisted when I got auto...
