  1. Interesting. I'll look into this. It's possible PiHole will work on certain smart tvs, too.
  2. Looking at a detailed review of the LG OLED55BXPUA, they mention that the home screen displays ads and that there "is no way around this". Do you know if having no internet connectivity to the device would prevent this?
  3. I've heard that some smart TVs lose basic functionality when not connected to an internet connection, or have issues when doing so. I will look into the LG BX series. I am a fan of LG displays in general. Thanks for the tip!
  4. Well I'm finally in the process of moving to my dream town- West End Vancouver BC. I'm a Canadian returning home from the US where I currently live in a shoe box with my wonderful wife. We are very excited for our new place because it will be comparatively MUCH larger than where we live. We are dually excited to purchase our first TV together! I'm thinking 4k OLED. The Lord of the Rings 4k is what comes to mind as the first thing I want to watch on my new TV. I absolutely do NOT, however, want to deal with a "smart" TV, for reasons I won't go into now. Are there any good non-smart 4
  5. I'm just a man, young by most standards. I'm certainly not a child anymore, though the line of work I find myself in I'm certainly treated like one on occasion. No, I'm in my late 20's and am about as average as can be. Like all of us, I find myself in a fast paced world, fumbling about to keep up. COVID has turned my life around, like many others. It's just another obstacle I must overcome. Mental strength is key during these times, especially when you have a wife to support, as she does you. There is strength in relationships like that, enough to keep going with confidence. Unemployment has
  6. Hello, I'm doing a bit of work on an SFTP server as my way of noodling around with Linux for the first time! I'm having fun with it so far, but I ran into a bit of trouble. I have a handful of users and groups, and I'm trying to get them exclusive permissions to their namesake directories on a USB hard drive. Directories are all set on the hard drive, groups are arranged how I want them. I'm just wondering how I address specific groups when I give them permissions for directories. So far I found: sudo chmod g+rwx /media/pi/PiCloud/guest I understand that this gives the group
  7. Well dang that's some juicy info! Thank you, I'll be looking into these options this week.
  8. Greetings! Lately I've been receiving a lot of phone calls from coworkers who typically close the building at night, and it's always around the time that me and my brother are elbow deep in ranked Rocket League 2v2's. I'm sitting here with a sweet mic and headphone set-up wondering why the heck I couldn't just hit a hotkey and accept an incoming call. So, I decide to look that stuff up. Lots of programs and apps link your phone and pc to send and receive sms, and some even say they can send phone calls, but NOTHING allows you to take incoming calls. I found an old post from 2016 on
  9. Hey guys, After the birth of my first PC (R7 1700/GTX1080 etc) I've been enjoying the life of a high frame, high graphic snob. However, if I'm to record my intensely high FPS and graphics gameplay at 1440p with no loss in performance, I'm going to need a second pc to be able to GPU encode all that tasty data. I've already looked into the differences between CPU and GPU encoding for streaming and recording, but now I'm stuck on which graphics card to get for this second system. It's hard for me to think about how much gpu usage recording takes vs gameplay. Using Rocket League as an ex
  10. Official site. It's no big deal, but I'd of thought someone from the company would have proofed it.
  11. Am I missing something, like a secondary peel or something? The LTT Sticker has extremely faint gray lettering on a white background, making it impossible to see. Pretty disappointing. I put it on my UPS instead of in my car like I planned because it's so hard to see. This is like the least important post I've ever done here--I'm used to hardware inquiries and emergency posts lol but I'm just a little surprised that they sell this even though it's almost useless for its purpose. I'm not hating or anything, just want to see if I'm being stupid or if others had the same issue.
  12. I did 50k, framed. Did 75k, framed, same all the way up to 200k. Everything had dropped frames except mostly for the 125k area.
  13. This seems to be the best I can get with slight framing It's almost likely that it'll be fine on most other games. Forza is extremely demanding, which is why I'm using it to bench.
  14. So it's impossible to record as I'd like with OBS..? Seems pretty terrible. I'd REALLY rather use the same program I have all of my scenes set up on and all that.
