  1. Hi! So I have an LG UH66 TV, which takes the HDMI input from my PC, and an Amazon Echo Dot. I also have a 5.1 system I want to use conveniently, basically I never want to switch inputs. I'd need a DAC / Mixer, which takes SPDIF and Jack/RCA inputs, and outputs it in 5.1. SPDIF: Comes from the TV, can be 2.0, 5.1 source of course (audio passthrough). In the case of 2.0, it should be output as surround. Jack / RCA: Comes from the Echo Dot, is 2.0, should be output as surround. If both are active, it should just mix them together. Is there anything on the market to satisfy my needs?
  2. Strictly one user. But okay, lets deal with the elephant in the room. What the hell does transcoding mean for PLEX??? Do I even need it?
  3. Well damn, we are probably not there yet. Maybe with a 10Gbps network in a few years. I'll probably opt in for a Raspberry 3, and power up a hard drive from external power, then run PLEX Server on that.
  4. Ah, see, thats it, I don't want to run my PC to get PLEX going. I was thinking on getting a Netgear Nighthawk X10, that would (in theory), provide everything I need. Question is, can I get sufficient read speeds from the connected HDD to power the games?
  5. But then I have to run the PC for the Plex Server.
  6. And you play games from that NAS as well?
  7. Okay, I just bought a freakin smart TV, oh my the possibilities. So, the idea here is. I get a router which supports DLNA, connect a HDD to it, then share it on the network. I can, in theory, access every movie and series I want from that HDD on my LG TV. Now, what I want is, to ditch the HDD from my PC, and use that one on the network, to install games on it. Again, in theory, I have 125 MB/s (1gbps) read speeds from the HDD, which is not that much less than the speed of a 7200 RPM local HDD. Oh, and I have a Steam Link under the TV, which is connected to the network, and I stream games to it from the PC. Can this work or am I just a mad man?
  8. So, I have an Asus Xonar DG soundcard, and a new Genius 1250B speaker, with the controlls on the right one. The idea was to swap the RCA cables, changing the channels, so I can put the control speaker to the left, closer to my PC. I removed one, then the aliens tried to contact me. Plugged it back, still noisy as hell. Now, this green jack is dead I guess. But I set the Asus software to 4 speaker output, and plugged the speakers into the black jack, restoring the sound. However, I don't know if this is still true stereo? How does the stereo to quadraphonic conversion work? Do I hear the same thing in the now virtually rear speakers? Another idea was to remap the jacks, like you can with Realtek cards, but I have no clue how to do it with the Asus soundcard, probably some registry magic.
  9. No, but if you want to upgrade your CPU to a more futureproff version, you need a new motherboard too. And that's more than $250.
  10. #1 is a new GPU for sure. And maybe another 4GB of RAM.
  11. AMD is no go for me. I have had my fair share of their problems. I'm officially a green guy.
  12. Fuck me, my current GTX 460 is Fermi. You are correct.
  13. I can get an EVGA GTX 660 ACX for the same price as an Asus GTX 750 Ti Strix. I will surely OC both, but I know Maxwell is better at OC than Kepler. Which one do you think I should get?
  14. Gratz! I remember, when you still were a startup group, I always looked at LTT videos, they seemed honest.
  15. The Maxwell based 850M. No one dare tell me I can't overclock dat!
