  1. My drive has my entire library on it. Music, tv, and movies. It’s about 4tb’s full. I’m actually thinking of adding 5tb’s more. Ten years ago I carried 2 huge binders of Dvd’s (about 500 movies). I’m so glad that I went digital.
  2. Also I typically download SD iTunes movies for space consideration
  3. Sry, been driving all day. My target budget is around $400 and I have a 5TB external (USB 3) hard drive full of iTunes tv and movies. I typically use a m2 drive paired with a 500GB Ssd drive for my PC drives and the external for movies. I’ve looked into the new R Pi 4 but apparently iTunes doesn’t support ARM processors. Also I do have a Apple TV 4k but as I’m often in areas where I have no internet it helps to have all my movies already downloaded.
  4. I drive a semi truck coast to coast and I need a small PC that will run iTune movies but will also not be in the way. I have tried using a laptop with an external drive but overtime the vibration and bouncing has made my USB ports start to not work. I have also tried putting a small tower in my passenger seat and I don’t have the USB issues with that as I do with the laptop but it is simply in the way most of the time. I have been looking at Mini PCs as they have a smaller profile than a tower but have the benefit of the usb being replaceable. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
  5. I have limited space as I drive a semi truck and I’m having issues with excess wires from all my electronics. I would like to put my Xbox and my Apple TV on the same power cord. Do they make a power splitter that would fit those devices? (After all they both use the same cord) Or can I just take 2 power cords and splice them together? Could doing this damage them?
  6. This was what I was thinking but I wasn’t really sure. Thanks for the replies.
  7. I recently purchased 3 years of Nord VPN. Now I’m a little confused about what devices need it installed on. I use my phone as my primary hotspot as I am a coast to coast truck driver. Now should the phone be the only one with the vpn installed or should all the devices connecting to it also have the vpn installed as well?
  8. I generally use my phone as a hotspot but I have never used more than 1 device at a time. T-Mobile says they support up to 5 devices but will the devices treate the phone as a router and commicate with each other. Like can iTunes on my laptop push a video through the phone to the Apple TV like it can at home
  9. I drive a semi cross country for a living and I have several devices that work better in a network environment. Do they make a router that runs on a phones internet signal? Some of my devices are a laptop, Apple TV, amazon echo, and a smart TV.
  10. I just got the EVGA GTX 1070 and the Asus Maximus 8 Formula. They both have RGB lighting on them. Is there any way to control the RGB from a central program or do I have to adjust them separately in their individual programs?
  11. Unfortunately I can't put a 32" on my monitor mount. I use an obutto cockpit and I am pushing it having 3 27's on it. I also don't want to spend any more money on monitors as I have 3 very good 27" monitors already. as well as a 32" TV on top. (This picture is outdated. I have added 2 27"s and removed 1 20". I now have 5 screens on my setup.) Maybe in a few years I might get a few 1440p monitors. I have used this set up on a single R9 285X for years and haven't had any issue with it. Power is also not a concern as I invested in a 860w power supply.
  12. I'm using 3 27" monitors at 1920 x 1080 with a 4th 20" monitor at 900 x 1600(in portrait). My main concern is the money I am spending on these cards. I know I want 2 cards for the looks of the PC but I am also realistic to know that I can't buy the parts all at one time. My original budget for these cards was $250 for one card with a second card a few months down the road. Now that has ballooned to $419 for 1 card and another $419 a few months from now. I plan on water cooling both the CPU as well as the GPU's as soon as I finish buying all the parts of the PC. As it stands I still need 2 Graphic Cards and 3 ram sticks before I can even think of Water cooling.
  13. It would take me 2 months to earn that type of cash. I wasn't planning on buying a 2nd GC for another couple months. I can justify spending $400 on a card now and then another $400 a month from now since it would only take a few weeks to earn that but $700 on 1 card ($1400 on 2) is just not possible since I have bills to pay. As it is I am working 2 jobs (14 hour days) in order to be able to afford this PC that I am building and my planned card budget has already doubled from what I originally planned. Originally I was only going to spend $500 on 2 GC's and now I am increasing that to $800 for 2 cards. I simply want 2 cards in my system so that when I water cool it, It will look great. I am lucky in the fact that on my second job I am considered an independent contractor and as long as I make 1 delivery a month I can work as much or as little as I want to. My 9 to 5 job pays the bills and the second job pays every thing else.
  14. What about founder's edition vs a normal card. Is there a benefit to an FE card?
  15. So if I'm going for a 1070 which one would be recommended. I don't know the GTX line up as well as I do the AMD one. I usually stick with XFX as I have always had solid performance out of their cards.
