    • 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.

    • Microsoft announced a new Surface device last night, the Surface Go.  The announcement felt forced as leaks were dropping all over the place so it looks like the Surface Team just said, "what the heck," post it! 
       
      It's a confusing addition to the family. Remember Surface 3?  The Go is a much improved device but I'll have to get my hands on it in order to fully judge it.  I loved the 3 and still own it with a dock.
       
      It starts at $399 which is great but the hardware is a bit limited at that price point.  It starts with the Pentium Gold 4415y processor. Here is a comparison to show you some characteristics versus the Core i3. It also starts at 4Gb of RAM and a 64Gb eMMC drive.  It's only 1.15 pounds and will have LTE options in the future.
       
      I've read a ton of posts on this device where there is "target market" confusion.  Read it for yourself straight from Microsoft's mouth. "Empower your workforce with the lightest, most compact Surface yet"

       
       
      Here is the announcement post - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-go
       
      Most articles are comparing it to iPad's and Chromebooks and although i think it will be a good alternative to the Chromebook I don't think it is a direct compare to the iPad nor targeting it.  I think it is a build that came from direct feedback from the working market.  A light portable with pen ability that doesn't cost $1500 if it is dropped. Pretty simple.
       

       
      My biggest disappointment is the keyboard.  Yup, gotta add $99 if you don't want to type on glass.
       
      Will enthusiasts buy it? Couch PC? Reader by the bed?  This little Surface has a lot of merit on paper so we will see how it holds up when it ships on August 2nd.  Let me know down below if you are going to get one.

      This one is new to me but the coin is not.  BAT Coin may sound funny but it is a serious "ALT" coin.

      No lag. No interlaced looking video and instant 30 second skip ahead with zero rebuffering. Am I asking too much? Old antiquated WMC was doing this all when? Back to xp days?
    • Trig0r
      Maybe time to find an alternative, its only for a single stream and has been fine for ages, just think they're breaking older things with the newer updates, doubt wont be able to install an older version though as the app on the FireTV stick will probably be too new to talk to an old server...   Maybe alternative time...

      one of the beauties of WMC was that (when it was working) it collected the pure unadulterated "file" that was broadcast and you could choose to watch it with something like VNC for full enjoyment.

      I don't think I would transcode on anything but a core i processor.

      Offline Bundle Upgrades I assume? - Any comments on stability/experience or is it 99% good to run in a home environment? Did you add in any special drivers to get it working?  I see lots of people are switching a driver to get faster disk speeds, did you do that too?
