Re: Ditching Cable

I've pretty much had it with Spectrum TV, tired of their high prices for less channels. I'm keeping the high speed internet though, so I was wondering what other services you folks use instead of cable/satellite. I saw an article on FUBO TV that looked promising, my only requirement is that it get ...

Re: Ditching Cable

I think data caps for internet are stupid. Friend has a satellite connection because he lives in the middle of no where. He is limited to 10GB a month. My daughter can do that in a week because 99% of what she watches is streamed content. Only 2 shows she watches on broadcast TV and that only becaus...

Re: Ditching Cable

I know a few people have switched to streaming. Most are using combinations of Amazon Prime, Netflix, Playstation Vue, and Kodi. The difficulty is the sports. If you want sports, you can go the kodi route and take a chance with the sketchy live streams, most come from outside of the country. The leg...

Re: Help! No LAN detected.

The on board may have shot craps. Boot to a linux live cd of some flavor a see if it will see the PCI card.

In the off chance if sees either of the NICs, Windows is dorked somehow. Sees nothing, could be the board.

Re: TerraMaster F2-420 2-Bay Quad-Core NAS Review

I have lost track of the number of people that have brought me a PC to fix that didn't even make a recovery drive, let alone backup anything up. Most I see lately is pushing cloud backup. Hell most that I know that use iPhone have the 50GB iCloud and between their iPhone and iPad dont have/want/need...

If they insist on putting RGB in everything, they could at least put an off switch somewhere.

Re: Corsair VOID PRO RGB Wireless SE Gaming Headset Review

System is on while I need it, off when I don't. When I'm converting files or crunch on something overnight can't have the system hibernating for that. Lock the screen and turn monitor off, but timer for screen saver kicks in and boom, headset starts cycling all the colors. Its a bit annoying. System...

Re: Corsair VOID PRO RGB Wireless SE Gaming Headset Review

I like my Void PRO RGB USB headset. I wish there was a way to flat out disable the RBG. For now I just set it to black, sadly when the screen saver runs it cycles colors.

Will be so happy when the RGB crap goes away.

Re: Windows 10 and quick access new window issues

From what I have read the windows/cc headbutting has been an issue for some (not all) CC users for 2 years. Both sides say issue is due to the other. I'm leaning Adobe, because the issue seems to popup after using an export option in Photoshop. The issue repeated on my laptop (also windows 10), roll...

I had tried that, still no luck. Narrowed it down to combination of windows updates and Adobe Creative Cloud updates butting heads. Rolled back to an old restore point this morning and CC updates, issue went away. Avoiding the CC updates for a while. Annoying as all get out.. it was ONLY on the quic...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

It either died, or there was a driver push in Win10 that dorked it up.

Boot to a linux live disk see if the speed comes back. If it does, something in Win10 has ya boofed, if it stayed the same its hardware.
