  1. Yeah, I've seen a bunch of reviews on both. From what I can tell, the main difference seems to be the image processing tech. The issue is, I can't see that in person on the C7 to see if 2 generation old LG out competes the current Hisense.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm in a position where I can get either a new Hisense PX OLED or a second had LG C7 OLED TV for about the same price. The second hand LG is still in warranty. Given I'm hooking it up to a HTPC, I don't really need any SmartTV features. Do you think the older panel on the LG would still out compete the newer Hisense? What would you do in my position?
  3. I have played around with OpenWRT and I quite liked it. I would like something a little more user friendly, like Gi.Net's implementation. That said, I'm not opposed to installing my own GUI and putting in the time to set everything up myself. I would just need some hardware that works well with the firmware, because the router I installed it on did not play nicely with it.
  4. So you think go down the DDWRT/OpenWRT route over something like Ubiquiti's software? As for the price, if it does what I want, then I'm not really concerned with what it costs me.
  5. Hey guys and girls! I'm looking for a recommendation for a home router (preferably one that's available somewhere in Australia). It needs to be able to work simultaneously as a VPN client and server. I'd like it to be able to route all network traffic through a VPN, bar certain kinds of traffic, like games; though, I don't even know if that's possible. If not, at minimum, I'd want it to be able to route traffic through a VPN on the basis of IP address. I'd also prefer it to just be a router with maybe some switch functionality, though it's not a necessity. Preferably no modem and no AP though. I'm thinking something from Ubiquiti, either their EdgeRouter or Security Gateway but I'm looking to diversify that pool. Maybe something running OpenWRT? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi all, I've got a car with Android auto but unfortunately the cars USB port only outputs a measly 0.5 amps. I've got a few chargers in the car though that have a higher current output. Can anyone suggest a way to route data through the cars USB port for Android auto, and then power from a separate USB port for charging? I've tried two different USB Y Splitters, one with a master and slave USB A male to USB A female and the other with two equal USB A male to USB A female and the phone will only accept one input or the other. Anyone have any other ideas?
  7. Hi guys, I just got a new laptop, a HP EliteBook 3TU05PA. After a Windows update, the internal Intel XMM 7630 LTE modem stopped working. I've tried rolling back to a system restore point prior to the update, restoring Windows and reinstalling Windows. HP has had to motherboard replaced (though not the modem, I don't know why). I've gone through windows support, who have told me they can't help and I currently have a ticket open with Intel too. From my own diagnostics, I've found that Windows is detecting the device, though in a really weird way. The XMM 7360 is connected via PCI like any other network adapter, however, it's showing up as a system device in device manager. What's more, under its properties, Windows seems to think it's connected via USB and that it's an old piece of hardware that isn't compatible with USB3.0. As a result, every few minutes I get the generic Windows device disconnect and then reconnect sounds. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here? HP have ordered a new XMM 7360 but I don't think this is hardware related. I'm waiting to hear back from Intel but who knows how long that will take.
  8. I suppose my other option is to offload processing to a separate machine. I'm about ready to upgrade my 3820 desktop. I could put a machine together using that to run all my process intensive tasks and just keep my existing NAS as storage. Can anyone foresee any issues with this approach?
  9. I was thinking about that but I can't recall much about the performance of AM3 chips. Will they handle what I want to do with them?
  10. I was about to say, 1150 E3 Xeon's support unbuffered and that's what I have so no worries there. 1150 is probably the way to go. And dual socket 2011 is definitely overkill for my needs. I'm just looking to transcode a couple of 4k videos at a time for WAN streaming which any E3 Xeon should be able to handle.
  11. Hi guys, My NAS is struggling with the plex video transcoding I'm throwing at it so I think it's time to upgrade and I'm after a new motherboard. The thing is, I've already got 32 GB of DDR3 ECC memory and I don't want to have to replace that with current memory prices. Can anyone suggest a motherboard that's actually in stock for this purpose? It needs to have at least 4 DIMMs, 6 SATA ports on the same controller and IPMI. Other than that, I'm thinking socket 1150 or maybe 2011, for ease of finding a CPU, ideally an ITX form factor but I'm happy to go all the way up to an ATX board. I'm looking to keep the cost under ~$350 USD. I'd love to hear some recommendations!
  12. Okay, thanks for the tip. I'll look into it. Though, they only mention a 1 year warranty on the board so I'm not holding my breath.
  13. Yeah, I've been trying to contact them and they seem to have stopped replying to my emails. I'll keep at it but their customer service has been terrible so far.
  14. Yeah, the BMC firmware is up to date with version 00.30.00.
  15. Hello all, I'm at my whits end with this problem and Asrock have stopped responding to my emails. I've had an Asrock C2750D4i for two years now and it's always been working fine until recently when my system froze. I couldn't perform an orderly shut down through the IPMI interface, FreeNAS or the FreeNAS GUI (which I couldn't even access), so I performed an immediate power off through IPMI. Since then, I've been having all sorts of weird issues where the system wasn't posting, outputting ethernet and outputting VGA signal, either through the VGA port, the IPMI interface or both. At this time it seems to be posting but I've got no VGA to see what exactly is happening, no ethernet and minimal IPMI functionality so I have no idea how I can diagnose the issue. I've tried removing all but one stick of RAM (tried 4 individual sticks in all 4 slots), I've removed or disconnected all non-essential hardware and tried clearing the CMOS and none have fixed the issue. The system is running the latest BIOS and BMC. I've attached a photo of the last view I had of the VGA output before I lost it. Specifications: Motherboard/CPU/Cooler: Asrock C2750D4i Memory: Crucial CT102472BD160B 4x8GB PSU: Silverstone SST-SX500-LG OS Drive: SanDisk UltraFit 16 GB OS: FreeNAS 11 At this point, that's all the hardware that's attached to it. Any suggestions you may have would be excellent. I'm on the verge of replacing the board.
