    Anyone still use an analog capture card?

    You don't happen to have an old MiniDV camcorder lying around do you? I know most of them had analog AV outs and some could do AV in as well which meant you could play analog video into the camera and out of the DV port in the computer. I bought some Apple adapters to play with a couple of...

    Anyone still use an analog capture card?

    What device and what software have you tried? Have you tried this device and it's software? I have heard people say that this is a pretty decent one, although a bit pricey. The last analog one I use was a Dazzle that I had...

    Help Request: 3 computers - one Synology - two switches

    I have my setup just like your diagram except I have my nas hooked up to the second switch since it’s in the room with my main 2 computers. I have no issues with my setup. I am using a pair of QNAP 5 port multigig switches.

    New router for 2.5g

    These are the QNAP's I have, TPlink has a similar one for around $100-120. I paid $120 each for these on sale, they were $140+ and hard to get for awhile due to the chip shortage a couple of years ago.

    New router for 2.5g

    Does that mean if I have 2Gbps internet service and I have 2 machines plugged into the 1Gbps ports, each one can only download at 500Mbps, or would each be able to get 1Gbps? edit: Oh, just looked up what those were and they are security features.

    New router for 2.5g

    This would be awesome if it had all 2.5GbE ports, but what does this mean in this image? IDS/IPS throughput 1Gbps. Does that mean even though it has a 2.5GbE Wan port that only 1Gbps can go through it?

    New router for 2.5g

    As I was checking out the one you listed I saw this really expensive router for $800. :eek: I currently use an Arris G36 Cable Modem/Router combo with a 2.5GbE Lan port hooked up to a pair of QNAP 2.5GbE switches (one next to the modem and another in the garage so I can have 2.5GbE to all my...

    no sound from speakers but subwoofer works

    maybe part of the amp failed, like a capacitor or two dried up and failed. The newer Klipsch's don't have a power switch from what I read and they are always powered when plugged into the wall. googled and saw this post on a random forum,

    Case side panel broken twice, how to cover the case now?

    If you can't get a solid panel and you get another glass panel, put some window tint on the inside so when it does break again it will mostly stay together in one piece. I know this first hand when I was installing a spoiler on my 1986 Trans Am and was drilling mounting holes and one of them was...

    Naw, I can't aim with a controller, that was M&K. I got the Elite 2 on sale for $159 or 179 a couple of years ago when I bought a Series X console.

    5600G build and PBO question

    One thing I didn't realize when I got the Ryzen 5500 and 5600G processors was that they only support PCIe Gen 3. I only paid $68 for the 5500. The delivery time for it kept changing and I talked to Amazon customer service and they gave me a $30 courtesy credit. I ordered a second one so I...

    Which controller are you using for PC? (xbox?)

    I use an Xbox Elite 2 controller on my PC and SteamDeck. I've been using Xbox controllers since the 360 since I like the shape and layout of them over the PS style controller. Way back in the day I used to use a PS2 controller on my PC with one of those PS2 to USB converter boxes,

    I have an older 7400 with the same iGPU as you and it plays 4K just fine, I just don't have a 4K monitor, I am using Edge as my browser. I also have a similar machine to the one you are building, 5600G, Asrock B550 Steel Legend, but 32GB Ram, cheap and very powerful

    30tb hdd for consumers this year

    My first hard drive was 100MB in my Amiga 3000 I bought in 1992. The following year I bought a Video Toaster 4000 card and had to upgrade my storage so I bought a 345MB Maxtor SCSI drive for $345. I currently have 134TB in my Plex Server.

    2.5" SSD for gaming?

    I was using a 6TB WD Blue as my download and unpack drive for my Linux ISO's but had to switch to my System drive as that is the only SSD in the machine when I upgraded to 2 Gbps internet. Downloads hit nearly 300MB/s and my drive only did 150 or so.

    Can someone AI-upscale this image for me in a quality way?

    I used Topaz Gigapixel. I just looked at both again and the one named 3840 was downscaled from the website, I chose 3840 in the link you provided, and it looks really close to the 1080p one. I noticed that the other file I did which was upscaled from 1080p lost detail on the center part of the...

    this was my only SLI setup. Built the system in late 2014, Asus Sabertooth Z97, i7 4790K, 16GB Ram, GTX980. Got the second card in early 2017. In early 2021 I was going to use these RTX 3080 FTW3's but they forgot to put the SLI tabs on the cards. :(

    Optimum speaker setup for PC gaming?

    You know what really gets me? Is how Apple does their surround sound on the Air Pods Pro. When you are wearing them and watching something, the sound sounds like it is coming from the screen. If you turn your head, the sound sounds like it is still coming from the screen. If I stand up and...

    ATX motherboards in SFF cases - Options?

    If you want a smaller case for an ATX board, you seem to be doing the same as using an mATX board, you are limiting what the ATX board can do when placed into a slim style case that you are looking for. Just get an mATX board that has what you think you will need and a small case that fits on...

    2.5" SSD for gaming?

    If you have free PCIe slots, you can get M.2 to PCIe adapters. The cards with multiple M.2 slots usually require that your motherboard supports Bifurcation, basically splitting a 16x slot into four 4x slots.

    Micro Center starts a GPU trade-in program

    They did the same thing for storage, bring in an old hard drive and get 25% off a new hard drive. Used that a couple of times for some 14TB Easystores when they were $189.

    Micro Center starts a GPU trade-in program

    I bought a new cable modem a few months ago at Best Buy and they were offering $40 for your old modem, so I brought in our first Motorola cable modem we got back in 2000 which isn't worth anything.
