  1. Thank you! Yep same... Bought a 3DS XL and one of those cables. Okay! Now I get it. totally get it: Kind of started doing the same because of those idiotic oversized USB chargers and external HDD PSUs (second picture is my Pi 4 server with 2x 8TB drives). Because of the late Amazon Prime Day this year I haven't found my perfect USB "hub" yet. I'm waiting for the Prime Black Cyber whatever day this year will bring us. Probably going for Anker too. I don't know how far I trust some of the No-Name Chinese companies.
  2. @GabenJr Hi Anthony! The USB thingy you showed in the video... could you please elaborate? All I got was that you are using USB PSUs instead of their power bricks(?). Watched the short bit multiple times, maybe I missed something.
  3. works, now has a thumbnail attempting to open it. edit: ooof. CDN getting ddosed... 1.5 MB/s buffering buffering buffering. Looks like it's working. edit2: Yep downloads and plays fine
  4. I switched from PayPal to my CC. Now the subscribe button works. No whoops error.
  5. Would love to be able to watch a movie with a quiet part (whispering) and action / car chase / explosions without turning the volume up and down. That's the main problem of my current TV and i'm pretty sure the next TV won't have the screen-as-a-speaker thing i saw on CES. It's 50% gaming, 40% TV / movies via streaming and some offline, 10% music, usually via Spotify Free, sometimes offline via my old CD collection (might re-rip them to FLAC if i like the difference in sound) AFAIK this happens because most TVs only do 2.0 and the voices usually use a separate center sp
  6. Can't do headphones anymore. Grand parents live in the same house. I hear something loud next door i have to run ASAP. Got some nice wireless Steelseries H headphones but i can't risk to wear them A single well balanced 5.1 setup; built to fit my couch area. Then "moving over the PC" (USB hub with keyboard, mouse and mic) to play on my couch. Those "couch master" desk things are still a thing / saw those on LTT years ago. Around 5-7 speakers. a sub woofer and a "box" - i still don't know how those are called - to combine multiple HDMI, maybe blue
  7. No idea. As i don't know what i need exactly. Roughly: >4 speakers, ca. 1 sub woofer, I think some kind of audio system to feed my HDMI sources into and from there to the speakers. Last time i had to buy (or help my dad upgrade his old setup) some audio equipment i visited 2 or 3 big retail stores, got some idea and my dad said: "Okay if you will help me plug it in, he decides the budget." I have no idea how a good 5.1 system sounds with gaming. My dad is using his to listen to music and sometimes watch a good movie with 5.1 sou
  8. Hey guys! add stupid chris pratt meme - i'm afraid to ask something something. I am living in a small apartment. PC, TV and Consoles all in one room. A couch and my PC desk parallel to each other. So i can turn my TV (on a very small cabinet with my file server and consoles on wheels) to watch on the couch and/or entertain my friends while able to run some games on my secondary monitor. Is it even possible to get a single setup to get good 5.1 or 7.1 sound on my couch and maybe able to get a modern sound setup on my PC? I like bassy m
  9. Well that's the only thing verifiable on a global level. The next best thing would be sending a post card like google does to verify your address (or the skill to intercept said post card); maybe a verification via voice call on a landline. Both options require resources beyond a web service company. You can message the discord service staff via email and try to negotiate alternative methods.
  10. You can set your update settings to Semi-Annual and set the days to wait for this update ("feature update) up to 365 days. This was usually used to move the update to the day the Enterprise edtions get if by default, now Microsoft allows to set the days manually. and you can completely Pause Updates too Advanced options in the Windows Update menu:
  11. Those install to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. No UWP stuff in C:\Windows
  12. a list of folders inside Windows aka a screenshot made with TreeSize, WinDirStat or other tools showing the folder size would be helpful. TreeSize looks like this (i cropped the image): The smaller size of every folder is it's space used on the disk after stuff like NTFS compression/compact compressed some of it. Especially the WinSXS Folder can show up really weird in some tools because Microsofts does some compatibility magic to keep a copy of every .DLL file on your PC. If you never used Windows pre-Vista you wouldn't know the trouble of installing a game that needs a
  13. don't just delete everything big ... Use the Windows tools first and clean anything else later. run cleanmgr as an admin (saves the second run scanning system files too) Mark everything and wait till it's finished. Now check via one of the many tools to list the biggest folders. I like TreeSize (it's on the Store and a free version on the JAM software website) One of the bigger folders i was surprised to see is C:\Users\harakiwi\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player ( change harakiwi to your own local username ) I used NTFS compression
  14. i would be mad if it turns OFF using the door bell. Those little f***s ringing and running away might get paint ball proof underwear if that would happen.... well and i would just uninstall the doorbell and install a giant bell or gong.
