    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!

      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?

    • OMG I'm watching HGTV off of my HDHomeRun Connect!
      I just subscribed to HD HomeRun Premium TV to see what it is all about.  Hello, I'm watching HGTV now!  Over ten years cutting the cord and this is a first.  All of those years have been with SiliconDust and the HDHR.  I had the older white ones with two coax inputs and I recall the move to the newer unit with only a single coax input as mind blowing!  I had two of the older ones so coax and splitters were a big mess.  Now, I have OTA and a good handful of cable channels.  I'm configuring it on Plex as I type this up.

      It's a good question.  Probably a chance due to these things having good resolution but it is still far off. May not even matter since the camera technically doesn't show the perps throwing anything.

      Nice John.  Welcome to the Cord Cutters Club!    Can you not put the leaf up in the attic and run a coax down to where ever you will put the HD HomeRun? I personally have a large antenna in my attic and nothing but a coax running to my basement. If it needs power for an amp it usually it has a power injector that goes on the coax where ever is closer to a power outlet.  It's better to be closer to the antenna but it will still work on the complete other end of it.   I get the same amount of channels no matter if I have an amplifier on it or not. The coax doesn't have that much loss to it on short runs from floor to floor.  Just an idea.

      Thank you for the reply, @netware5.  It looks like my heuristic approach would work well with a Gen. 8.  And the section you pointed me to actually highlights one of the things that is so crucially important when choosing RAM.   There are two things to be aware of when choosing RAM: The DRAM chips themselves, e.g., Micron or Samsung. The modules that contain the DRAM chips, e.g., Crucial (Micron), Samsung. The point is that module manufacturers often swap out the actual DRAM chips without changing the model # etc, of the module.  There was a notorious case years ago where Kingston got their modules officially approved for a particular series of mainboard, but later they changed the DRAM chips to something very different and the machines were then unbootable.   And not only do the DRAM chips drastically affect the RAM modules, but the design of the modules themselves is also critically important.   Personally I think Kingston is to RAM as Seagate is to HDD's.

      @schoondoggy Ah, yes of couse that makes sense.  It's all about the controller.  So the SATA/SAS connector from each drive bay connect to the same common HBA.  I would prefer a pure HBA rather than hardware RAID.  My RAID will be done in software in the filesystem/volume management layer (e.g., LVM, Btrfs, ZFS, etc).  Do you have any recommendations for HBA cards?  I'll be running LInux so it will need to be compatible, preferably with open source drivers.

      I unboxed my Mohu Leaf Glide HDTV indoor antenna with a possible range up to 65 miles.  It may be possible for me to receive up to 30 channels in my area.  I first attached it to my HDTV in the basement and was able to receive 6 channels – which seemed pretty good given the below ground level location.  Later I tried it with my 1st floor HDTV and received 7 channels. At a future date I plan to set it up in my 2nd floor attic to check the channel reception at that higher elevation attached to a Silicon Dust HD Homerun. I need to figure out how to get power and an internet connection to my attic.       AS-Built: Mohu Leaf Glide HDTV Antenna, Indoor, Amplified, 65 Mile Range, Paper-thin, Reversible, Paintable, 4K-ready, with 16 foot detachable cable
