    Linus Tech Tips Visits the New Amazon Go Store

    The bigger problem is it's only open from 7am to 9pm M-F, which means they aren't even open on the weekend.

    Any reason why you don't just use iperf? It's free, easy to use and has all sorts of options.

    Suggestion for a videocard for a computer I acquired & turning into a HTPC.

    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.

    Need help in directing Smart TV internet audio to receiver's 5.1 speaker system, not

    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...

    Apple Readies Fix for Thunderstrike Bootkit Exploit

    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.

    Charter Communications and Copy Once Protection Flag

    I don't think anyone has found a way to beat the Copy Once protection flag. You will not be able to ditch WMC if you want to keep watching channels that have the Copy Once flag.

    How to tell if my Unifi remote logging is working?

    Wireshark only sees what data is going over the network card. If you're using then you need to monitor the loopback. It sounds like your syslog server isn't setup correctly.

    It's too bad the Skype UI is awful for messaging. Maybe this means they'll actually fix that problem?

    Full 4k/60Hz HTPC

    ARC is just fine. You should only plug in to your receiver if it also supports HDMI 2.0, which not all do.

    Which State Is Torrenting The Most

    Except that makes no sense. Iowa is much more boring, same with the Dakotas, yet there's less pirating going on in those 3 states, and they also get paid on average less than Ohio.

    10G/40G QSFP switch not working

    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...

    BMW and Daimler Working on Wireless Charging for EVs

    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.

    Cisco VTP Issues

    Well that's easy. You have 2 servers. Of course it won't work. One device has to be a Server, and the other needs to be a Client. Configure that and everything will start working as you expect.

    Ceton InfiniTV on linux

    Well that's weird, I guess somehow I'm lucky, as I have no problems. You don't happen to be running a firewall or anything like that on ctn0? Or is this a InfiniTV Eth device, in which case you might want to verify firewalls on your normal nics.

    Win7 MCE vs Win8.1 MCE

    1. Media Center on Windows 8 is the exact same as on Windows 7. 2. Windows 8 is the same as Windows 7 for Tuners 3. I do not know. 4. If you buy WMC on Windows 8, you will get MPEG-2/DVD Video Support 5. Unlikely. There's no real difference between windows 7 and windows 8 for media center.

    Curved Screen TVs Are A Gimmick

    No, they know why everyone upgraded. They just need people to upgrade again due to the race to the bottom for pricing. The problem is, HDTV was such a giant leap that they don't have any clue how to make people buy TVs like that again, which is the problem. Why buy a new TV, when your...

    Image Checksum Error - Cisco 2520 Router

    Motherboard suggestion for 4K video + audio

    Uhh, yes it does. It's only when you go to 10-bits of color or more that you can't do 4:4:4/RGB at 4k@60hz, which having a 10-bit or higher panel isn't even all that common anyway.

    Route Maps on Native VLAN, can they impact trunks?

    Route maps don't matter when it comes to doing Layer 2 to start. Second, when you say traffic is being lost, how are you determining this? Have you checked bandwidth utilization? If this is pure Layer 2, then you've got an access port on VL600 on Switch 1, and Switch 3. And then in between...

    Pet Peeve on the networking forum...

    Here's an easier way to look at it: Frames carry Packets. If there is a frame, there is a packet. The opposite is not always true, it depends on where exactly are you looking, and if MPLS is involved. Also, routers still send out frames. Not to mention routers are starting to blur the line...

    Why is there so few Dual CPU Intel based Workstation motherboard?

    It says 3 Years Labor, 1 Years Parts. "three-year warranty for labor and one-year warranty for parts." Not 3 Years Parts, 1 Year Labor. That means, you will pay for the capacitors, not the labor cost.

    Missing metadata for .WTV files

    Microsoft and AT&T Announce A Security-Enhanced Reliable Cloud Solution

    New (as in today) exploit known to use port 53?
