  1. I remember watching that but didn't have a clue what search terms to use to dig it up, thanks for the video, going to watch it now
  2. Will this one work for SNES? 2X-MINI | RetroTINK I looked up the framemeister and that's way out of budget. I have this one now but didn't realize that the SNES doesn't come with RCA ports on it, so going to get the RCA output cable too Amazon.com: RCA to HDMI, GANA 1080P Mini RCA Composite CVBS AV to HDMI Video Audio Converter Adapter Supporting PAL/NTSC with USB Charge Cable for PC Laptop Xbox PS4 PS3 TV STB VHS VCR Camera DVD : Electronics Budget isn't exactly a concern until you start talking about $500+
  3. Anyone been able to get this raid card to work on windows 11? I can't seem to find any drivers that work and when I upgraded to 11 the raid just doesn't show up, device manager says The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There are no compatible drivers for this device. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver. It worked on win10, any thoughts? (admins I posted this question in another thread but it looks like that's not an in depth thread so if you have to delete one please delete that one)
  4. Anyone have problems with their raid array not showing up? I have an LSI Megaraid SAS9260 8i that won't install a driver and I can't find anything remotely recent for it.
  5. What's the best way to hook up an SNES to a modern television? I'm currently planning on an SNES composite cable into an RCA to HDMI adapter. Will this work or is there a better solution? Also, is there a different solution to playing Tetris on a new TV that is just like an SNES? The reason I ask is that my uncle is brain damaged and legally blind but loves his SNES tetris. Trying something radically different to play tetris on would make him frustrated. Probably doesn't exist but worth a shot
  6. Blizzard exit's when I hit the X to close instead of minimize to tray.  I appreciate that.  I seem to remember that used to be an option on most programs..... maybe I need to go into options on all of my daily programs? *edit: first one, wargaming has the option.  I've gotten to lazy to set thing's up apparently.  Just tired of closing thing's in the tray every night since I leave my machine on to mine.

  7. Please don't use a static compressor and static blower, your system will never work right. I don't have any experience with multi stage systems because here in colorado it's single stage or go home, even large homes are built with multiple hvac systems all of which are single stage. But I do know for certain that if you have 80% of your air flow blocked off it will cause several problems on a static system. (remember that a closed damper or register still flows air, closed registers still flow 30%)
  8. I tend to watch a sponsor spot if I haven't seen it before, mostly even if it's something I have no interest in.  I feel like I owe it to the creator I'm watching.

  9. As for ambient light, during the day they have heavy curtains because my mom has a lot of medical issues that bright light can cause problems with. As for night they tend to like a little background light but not much, there is a dimmable light over the dining room table which is behind the viewing area. As for source it can be anything other than a computer I'd imagine. I think they currently use cable TV but stream off an xbox 360 but I think they have a roku and I can get them any kind of streaming device required, they're all pretty affordable these days.
  10. Need to start looking into a projector for my parent's, they want one but don't want to spend money so I need to know what attributes to look for that way I can sell them on what they should have. They're going to get a manual roll up screen. They don't need anything uber fancy like short throw projection etc but they want a sharp picture. Sorry if I don't know what to ask but I know virtually nothing about this short of the boutique projectors showcased on LTT.
  11. Does anyone else appreciate that java updates don't give you a pop up or reminder and sit patiently in the background for you to install it? ontop of that it gives you the remove option?  Thing's like this should be applauded *cough* *cough* ccleaner

  12. Good advice, the biggest threat is a heat exchanger problem in a forced air system because the CO is being distributed directly into the bedrooms where people are sleeping. We recommend having one in every room that someone sleeps in. With something like a boiler, water heater, gas range etc it is more localized and not as much of a threat because chances are you will be awake when around these appliances and can notice that you aren't feeling well before there is a problem. The best indicator of whether or not there is a mild CO leak is you, if you start to get a headache or feel nauseous
  13. I work HVAC in Colorado but we have a completely different philosophy. We prefer simple reliable and cost effective. In general anything beyond a single stage air conditioner and 2 stage 80% furnace will never leave you coming out ahead. Granted that's assuming you have someone honest and affordable to work on your equipment. Everything beyond is spending a quarter to save a nickel. With all of that said there are different needs than what we provide. For a tech influencer that can make a video about their fancy setup the roi is less important. I will say from expe
  14. I honestly don't know, been a year since I set it up. It's an LSI megaraid 8x4tb array *it doesn't have anything crucial on it
  15. So I hastely upgraded to win11, briefly tried to follow the info on the video today but for life of me couldn't find the energy to figure out my admin password vs my live account so I couldn't get into the command start up and didn't convert from mbr which would be the most likely culprit to my array going the way of the dodo. So now that I'm on win11 how do I recover my array?
