gilgameshflood reacted to RichardsD in Relatively cheap TV. What's the catch?
Here's the catch.
In electronics, there is a reason behind a $4000 Oscilloscope and a cheap ass Chinese one. Partially features, mostly design and components.
You see, not all surface mount devices, capacitors, etc are created equal. Brands like Nichicon create very high quality caps, where random Chinese brands are rated to have a much lower temp tolerance and generally the electrolyte inside will dry up quicker, or the cap will fail much faster.
From watching the glorious EEV Blog, I'd have to say the most common failure of cheap TVs and consumer electronics is bad quality parts without adequate cooling, or parts being used which are simply not reliable.
For example, the Power Supply in this TV will undoubtedly be absolute crap; some pre made PSU from another generic manufacturer simply slapped inside. Components like those can fail very quickly, and although replaceable likely won't be done through the.. and I shudder at this.. warranty service.
In summary, it costs less due to crappier components, less rigorous board design and generally shit QC and generic crap component selection.
gilgameshflood reacted to TriceraFLOPS in Relatively cheap TV. What's the catch?
a TV is both the sum of it's parts and (believe it or not, the company behind it) I would only buy a TV like this if I could directly compare the exact tv I was purchasing (not just the same model) with the competition, as there is much more to a TV than just size, resolution and refresh rate. there are other things they won't tell you like panel technology, panel manufacturer, panel quality, controller/scaler quality, upscaling etc.
for example: I have a samsung smart TV, but it is a low end model. the exact same TV is available all over the place, and it receives glowing reviews, mediocre reviews, and bad reviews from different people because although they bought the "same" TV, the panel inside was one of 3 or so different manufacturers, one of which was samsung and the only way to know was to look at the version number and know which version numbers were samsung(which you wouldn't see online, only in store)
I know nothing about the company or the TV, but I don't recommend buying a TV that you can't take a look at in person unless there are LOTS of honest reviews to back it up and a good return policy(that they actually honor)

Connect via HDMI and try going to Settings > Display settings > And I think from there you can select how the video goes out and after that the resolution it should have (tick 1080p only and otherwise 1080i only).
If that still doesn't work, you can try getting the audio via a different port. Your options are via the optical audio or the composite/component port to 3.5mm with something like this:
(That is what I use)

change the settings in the ps3's config to 1080p for the hdmi connection..and probably the aspect ratio to
gilgameshflood reacted to Umair in Tracking car through GPS navigation devices?
If you want a ghetto car tracking device, buy a cheap second hand Android phone (will cost you $40 max) and enable android device manager. Pop in the cheapest data-only plan you can find, plug the phone into your car somehow so it always has a charge, keep GPS on and you're set. If your car does get stolen, just Google "find my phone" and it will automatically pick the signal up for any phone registered to your Google account.
gilgameshflood reacted to slightlyjaded in Tracking car through GPS navigation devices?
A gps isn't really trackable unless it emits a signal. I believe Most of them can and do run passively. I'm not sure about the gps in your phone. I always thought they traced it by switching on the reporting feature that allows websites, and apps to use your location data.
gilgameshflood reacted to TDP_Equinox in Trouble playing media, keeps repeating.
Here we go again.. I hate dealing with DPC Latency issues
Let's start with the basics, re install any drivers.. Ethernet, audio, video, any peripheral that is not essential, and then run LatencyMon again after a reboot.
I notice you're running crossfire... That was my issue when I dealt with it. Remove one card and test again.

dust in air coolers
fan bearings dying
fan power delivery system malfunctioning
dried up thermal paste
cpu heat spreader seperating from die
gpu fans not spinning fast enough
gpu thermal paste lifting upwards
gpu locked at 100% load (even though software says otherwise)
cpu boosting to absurd speeds, then throttling back down
gpu boosting to absurd speeds, then throttling back down
overvolting (this would probably kill it or cause other things)
lack of airflow
cpu backplate loose/hold on screws loose
something obstructing the fans (dust, etc.)
If you're liquid cooling...
radiator fans malfunctioning
radiator tubes jammed
pump not strong enough
low coolant levels
high amounts of gas in tubes
dry thermal paste
indirect contact (crooked cpu block, etc.)

pump counteracting (if using multiple pumps, highly unlikely)
heat spreader seperating from die
system leaks (easily noticed if you have a side window)
reservoir seals not tight enough
gilgameshflood reacted to WolfZombie in Frequent Crashes after GPU installation
Wild guess but maybe its a driver issue between you apu's graphics driver and your graphics card. Try disable the apu driver under my computer > manage > device manager > display adapters. Right click the apu and disable.
Be sure to set a restore point because you can never be too safe.
gilgameshflood reacted to d3sl91 in something weird is going on :l
I feel like you still have something installed - its EXTREMELY rare that someone would install a screen capture software on your system. Double check your installed and running programs. Look up the name in google of any programs or running programs you do not recognise.
Run ccleaner and/or msconfig to edit your startup to remove items after looking them up on google.
Finally. BACK YOUR STUFF UP. Its like... buying a $60k car and not changing the oil. Your engine seizes because you didn't want to spend $50 on oil and a filter.
gilgameshflood reacted to TechSam in Online game breaks down with overclocked PC's, need help avoiding it.
what are the devs doing clockspeed increases game speed did these guys dev this game in 1990 when clockspeed affected speed of the game. This is some next level fuckuppery right here i have never seen dev these days fuck up their coding so bad that clockspeed affects the game .They have had to manually fuck up the unreal engine cause unreal engine prevents this in its coding atleast the last time i checked have been doing too much source modding to know this for sure.
