    • 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.

      Congratulations on your setup.  You are right and you will have to pop for one or two small managed switches such as the ones I listed above for the hard wire connections.  They are not horribly expensive and they will allow you to have a  very flexible and configurable configuration.  For example, a wired camera or cable box to one VLAN, and your media server or NAS to your main network.  As for daisy-chaining switches,  as long as you do not get carried away, it should not be a huge problem.  On paper, it adds a bit of latency, but in practice as long as you are using decent switches and that node is not saturated, you will not be able to measure any difference in performance.  I limit myself to two hops but have tested more than three and could not measure any difference.  I would opt for security over a theoretical latency.  Good luck and post what you end up with.

      Thanks pcdoc! Seem to have gotten my VLANs setup and working with isolation between IoT, Guest and my IPCams.

      Have moved the obvious WiFi IoT items over to their VLAN...smartTVs, Echo, Nintendo switch, smart locks, thermostats, etc.

      But there are some wired devices that aren’t as easily moved off my LAN, like TiVos, audio receivers w AirPlay, Xbox and PS4s. They’re wired back to a unmanaged switch. I’m trying to avoid daisy chaining switches together if at all possible.

      Have you run across any devices you’ve simply left on your LAN?
