    Mike Soda reacted to Donut417 in Picking A Cable Modem   
    Go with the Arris modem? Honesly Modem/Router combos in my opinion are hot garbage. I can recommend the SB6183, OR you can get a 24x8 modem the CM600 its netgear and highly recommend.

    Your better off buying seperate modem and router. A decent cable modem will last practicly forever. Hell my old SB6141 is likely to be upgraded when Comcast tells me they no longer want it on their network. Ive replace my router twice since buying my modem. 
     
    My generally advice for cable modems is this, for Docsis 3.0 you want a 16x4 or 24x8, Or just buy a Docsis 3.1 modem if its compatible with their network. Router wise any Wireless AC router will do. That being said TPLInk is good for budget, or look in to ASUS, Netgear or even Synology (the router I have but its expensive).

    I would just go on some "less than ideal sites" and download them all to DVDs and run them off a combo VCR

    Thats true. I would also look into making backups of the tapes, or streaming the movies if a VCR with a remote is N/A

    Honestly, I'd just get rid of that VCR and find one with a remote. The manual for the VCR isn't worth that kind of money.

    Yeah, I was trying to find a manual for it but all of them are paywalled... for some reason.

    I encountered the same, I guess because it's considered a vintage/legacy electronic device. They see it in the sense of, this is something richer people with nothing better to do use & not an old lady like my mom who has nothing but VHS tapes lol.

    I'll either buy an Amazon Basics cable or a Blue Diamond Cable from my local computer store

    Amazon Basics cables are fairly decent. Should work fine

    Mike Soda reacted to manikyath in Going Dual But Which Plug?   
    one DVI to DVI cable, and one DVI to HDMI cable
     
    and as long as your monitor uses this plug:

    you can use whichever power cable you want that's not a knockoff "fake".

    I used a single DVI and then a DVI to HDMI for about two years and it worked just fine

    Mike Soda reacted to Kc7vwc in Galaxy S7 Dash Mount   
    This is the one. It's held up a Galaxy J7, HTC 610 (forgot that one earlier) & now a Moto G5S Plus. Fully extended, the arm is about 7-8 inches long & the mount rotates freely 360 degrees.    After a couple months, the base of the arm might get a little bit of a wobble. But usually lifting up the suction cup mechanism (you can keep it on the glass doing this) & re-seating it will tighten up the connection. 
    As it sits right there on my PC, it gets more 'flex' & wobble from the acrylic window of my case than it does from the arm flexing. 
    We it's in my vehicle, I like to mount it along the left support column of my windshield, seating it low, so the bottom of the phone is floating about an inch above the dashboard. This puts it where I can still see it for GPS, but it's not blocking anything from the middle of the window. 
     
    Sorry I don't know what brand it is. It was actually the first unit I grabbed at the store & it's worked great since.

    Mike Soda reacted to Kc7vwc in Galaxy S7 Dash Mount   
    I bought a $20 suction mount from Target a couple years back, and it's worked great for my last two phones, with & without cases. It's survived Montana summer & winter with no issues.
    If you want it out of the sun, mount it above your rear view mirror. 
    And I've also used it inside against my PC so my phone doubles as aux display. 
    (Just checked their website & can't find it exactly. When home after work I'll try to remember to upload a pic)

    Mike Soda reacted to LogicalDrm in Windows 10 Photo Viewer   
    I got annoyed by default viewer making albums without my consent. Even after I disabled that feature. So it got uninstalled. Now I use Basic Photo Viewer which does just what I need. Quick view on items without having to change folder thumbnail size.

    I have used the Windows 7 photo viewer in Windows 10. There's a way to do it (have to check how I did it), but I don't know if it still works on the newest Windows 10.
