    Because it's not really designed for it and is subject to a variety of variables that can affect performance that a dedicated switch isn't. There's the matter of power consumption, expandability and reliability as well. A managed switch with SNMP and QoS support can do the same, but better and more efficiently/reliably.

    Basically, yes. Not particularly practical though.

    What Sub-100$ Hard Drive Should I Get?

    Hybrid drives aren't worth it (except in very specific circumstances) Go for a 4TB WD Blue or Seagate Barracuda.

    Plex app not on LG store

    Not too familiar with video encoding software, so can't offer much advise there I'm afraid. I've used Handbrake a couple of times when I need to change a couple of things in a video file, so maybe have a look at that.

    Plex app not on LG store

    If the App isn't there at all, then it's likely a region lock, or you have an older TV than I'm thinking it is. You could try contacting LG support to confirm it is region locked. I can't find anything saying it is though. If you can play them through DLNA, you may have to hardcode in the subtitles you want as a last resort.

    Plex app not on LG store

    The Plex app is definitely available for that TV (which uses WebOS 3.5 I believe), unless it's not available in Brazil. You could try changing the location you've got the TV set to if you can.
  7. We seem to be seeing more and more cases of technology outpacing the law in terms of progression. And more importantly, technology going beyond and over the heads of those responsible for creating and passing laws. It's lead to cringe worthy situations, such as the videos of Mark Zuckerberg trying to explain technology to officials who clearly don't know or understand enough to make any fair judgements. Encryption seems to be under attack by governments over the past few years, with the UK seemingly leading, now followed by Australia it appears. They just don't seem to understand the implications of backdoors and weakening security. The UK wants a complete ban on end to end encryption, which is utterly ridiculous. Full encryption is a double edged sword, but it seems that governments just aren't getting that the benefits of it outweigh the downsides.
  8. Looks like my ISP provided router is actually starting to die. 


    May finally give me an excuse to buy a Draytek Vigor 130 and a USG.

      My ISP tried to start charging me $15/mo even though I use my own router and had bought the previous one outright, lol.

    4 pin CPU fan on a 3pin CPU header.

    Yes, it will work.

    Your most reliable mice and keyboards?

    Have a Corsair M95 that has been solid for about 4 years now I think. For keyboards, I use a Ducky Shine 3 and Filco Majestouch 2 Ninja. Both are very similar in terms of build quality. Had the Shine 3 for about 3 years and only got the Filco recently. Used to have Corsair K95, but quite a few of the LEDs failed within the first year

    The Dominator Platinum also supports Corsair Link integration if you're using that (probably not). The main thing with the Dominator Platinums is the looks.
  12. Love rediscovering music I used to listen to all the time. 


    Music you can blast to the point of it nearly being painful.

    Cherry MX Blue vs. Brown

    MX Clears! Not that you'd be able to find a keyboard that uses them. I'd say go for browns, Blues just get annoying after the novelty of the clicky noise wears off. I have a colleague at work that uses Blues and it's hard to ignore the constant clicking coming from behind me. I use Browns at work and home and love them (would prefer Clears, but basically no-one uses them)

    local network bandwidth testing tool

    He's wanting to test the network itself, not the cameras. If the network itself is performing fine, the problem (if there is one) will likely lie with the camera or the media/host that the cameras are recording to.
