  1. Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14205/intels-auction-only-core-i9-9990xe-available-in-retail-2999 Seems der8auer's buddies will be selling the SI-only CPU to anyone willing to pay the €2999 price. Wishful thinking, but I'd love to see a few of these involved in the next round of #RIPLTT, #RIPGN, etc. They also have a dual system you can buy if you can summon up enough money:

    Video playback is always delayed

    Just realised, it doesn't happen when I don't have Chrome open. Either that's because Chrome has a problem, or from the large number of tabs I have open in it (even if the tabs processes are stopped). Maybe this could help you?

    Question about connecting two routers

    You possibly could, but I imagine the 2nd modem connection would stop working, and everyone in the building would connect to the internet through your one, which you said was already heavily throttled.

    Question about connecting two routers

    Not entirely sure if this would work, but if you can get in to the router's management page, you could try using port forwarding to the Pi and then just connecting the 2 routers with a long ethernet cable.

    Question about connecting two routers

    Do you get a different subnet when changing to the other router?
  6. I guess, technically, you could install from one partition on the SSD to another partition, but you'd have to be careful that you didn't delete the source partition during the format. Much easier to install off a DVD/USB, just download the ISO file and use your preferred method to copy it over. Then you should be able to boot from it and either install from the boot selection screen, or go to the desktop and there will be an install icon. Apart from that, it's pretty self explanatory. The only other thing I can think of would be using LVM if you plan to play with partition growing/shrinking. I feel I should mention that the Linux file system is completely different to Windows. I'll try to explain it in relation to Windows as best I can. Everything is a subfolder/file inside the root directory "/" (sometimes nicknamed File System), somewhat like C:, except your other drives are also inside this (under /mnt, /media, /dev, etc) as well as any devices you have (seen as a file inside /dev). C:\Users\username is instead in /home/username. Programs are usually installed in one of several locations, depending on the type of program (/bin, /sbin, /usr). The administrator user (called root) has its home directory in /root (not /home/root as you may think), but you shouldn't really need anything in there. A word of warning: the word "sudo" before any command in the terminal means run as admin. Also, if someone tells you to run "sudo rm -rf /", you're being trolled. It basically formats the drive.
  7. Generally lower than with Windows, but nothing is immune. Every time you want to install something or make a major change to the system, it asks you for your password. I don't know about Trend Micro or if this is included in your subscription (probably not), but a quick Google search seems to show that ServerProtect is available for Linux. If you really want antivirus, I'd go with ClamTk along with Clamav-daemon if you want on-file-access scanning with minor configuration changes. Steam is in the Software Manager in Mint (Wine is in there too) and VLC is already installed (I think you need to tick the 3rd party media programs box during install), so you should be fine to just download the rest . If you can't find it (especially in Cinnamon which I use), the icon for the Software Manager is a cardboard box in the start menu (or just use the start menu search). For any other programs you think you might need, just have a browse of the Software Manager. There is read and write compatibility for NTFS provided by the ntfs-3g program installed by default, so you should be fine. FAT32 is also fully compatible if you can't get that working for some reason.
  8. Sure, would be glad to help. DistroWatch is a website that lists basically every Linux, BSD, etc distribution there is, but that'd quickly overwhelm you. They do have a top 10 page of the most popular flavours, so that'd be a good place to start. As it says: I've never used PCLinuxOS, but have used the various types (mostly just graphical differences) of Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Have a read of each distributions pro's and con's and decide for yourself where you'd like to start. Personally, I'd suggest Linux Mint, especially because it includes non-free multimedia codecs right out of the box. To install WINE, you simply open the Linux Mint Software Manager (other distributions have their own name for it), which is basically an app store, and click install.
  9. Sources (original leak): https://twitter.com/dog_tower/status/939575388962947073 http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqbsph Allegedly, YouTube outsourced the demonetization process to an unnamed company who were given guidelines to follow when reviewing a video. But if they didn't find a specific guideline that the video had broken, they could demonetize it anyway of they just didn't like or agree with it. There was also a meeting in mid 2016 between high ranking YouTube officials and select creators. The purpose was to find a solution to the "unwanted creators" on the platform.

    Video playback is always delayed

    Did it temporarily fix straight after a reboot like mine did?

    Video playback is always delayed

    This reminded me that I'd installed an equaliser program thanks to seeing one in one of Luke's videos, and when I looked at it, it was only enabled for my Realtek audio and not my headphones. So, I turned it off to see if it was creating too much latency, which required a reboot. Then I started a 20 minute video, and it played without a hitch. Totally fixed I thought, so I turned it back on to make sure that was the cause. After another reboot, played the same video, and it was also fine So my guess, is it's related to system load (I generally have a lot open with days/weeks between reboots). I'll keep you posted as I slowly reopen everything, and see how much it affects things.

    Video playback is always delayed

    I've got exactly the same issue. Not sure exactly what the cause is, but I've temporarily solved it by using my bluetooth headphones thanks to this article. I always run the high performance power setting, so I'll have to try and find a more permanent solution.

    Do you happen to have Realtek HD Audio?
  17. I'm planning out a HTPC build for my parents centred around a TV tuner card so they can record their over the air shows, and I just wanted to get people's thoughts. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: *Intel - Core i7-7700 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($405.00 @ Umart) Motherboard: *MSI - H110M ECO Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($69.00 @ Shopping Express) Memory: *Crucial - 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory ($109.00 @ Shopping Express) Storage: *Crucial - MX300 525GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($199.00 @ Umart) Case: Silverstone - ML04B HTPC Case ($92.00 @ Umart) Optical Drive: Pioneer - BDR-209DBK Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer ($85.00 @ Shopping Express) Wireless Network Adapter: *Edimax - EW-7822PIC PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ad Wi-Fi Adapter ($59.00 @ PCCaseGear) Other: Hauppauge Win TV QUAD HD TV Tuner ($199.00) Total: $1217.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-11-17 15:50 AEDT+1100 Budget is $500-1500 AUD (less is obviously better) No peripherals needed (hoping to use the IR receiver included with the tuner card and CEC in Kodi to use existing remotes) Needs to have WiFi to connect to my Plex server as Ethernet is not a viable option OS is either going to be Windows with Kodi (using DVBLink or NextPVR to record) or Ubuntu with Kodi (using DVBLink to record) Will a quad core with iGPU be sufficient for recording 4 simultaneous HD (probably h.264 or h.265) streams, or will I need to get a dedicated GPU? Also, theoretically speaking, if I was to add a second tuner, what would I need to upgrade to record 8 simultaneous HD streams?

    Planning HTPC for parents

    I did see that when I looked at the specs of the Intel graphics, but I wasn't sure how many concurrent 1080i/50 videos it would be able to process.

    Planning HTPC for parents

    The 7700 (non K) came out of a parametric filter, and I would probably look at whether an i3/i5 could do the same if it was possible once I worked out how much power I needed. I'm not against a graphics card, I just wanted to see if it was possible without having to buy one (and the extra heat/power usage that comes with it). Most of the parts here are totally changeable if you can think of a better way of doing it. And I need to record 4 streams to disk as they're already using all 3 tuners at once in their existing PVR. They'll only get watched one at a time though.
