    Stadia finally coming to Android TV devices

    About damn time I say, though I'm sure they had their reasons for it taking this long. I'm actually being tempted to sell the Stadia kit and the Google TV kit rebuy an Nvidia Shield as I'm a casual GeForce Now user too, and it has the ethernet port.

    Tidal blocks me on all my devices

    On my PC, on my Android cell phone, and on my Android tablet Tidal blocks me. It says I have been blocked because it saw me typing at superhuman speed or perhaps because there is a robot on my network. They have a link to contact support. If you click on it a white area pops up. You are supposed...

    BT Router - too many devices connected. What one to buy?

    Apologies if this has been asked before. First of all, let me say that I am very unfamiliar with this kind of tech. However, having suffered with internet drop-outs, I finally spoke to BT (they supplied my router.) They said I have too many devices connected to my router (TVs, phones, tablets...

    Model: UN50EH5300FXZC no longer shows HDMI plugged devices

    Hi all! I used to use a Fire TV Stick until a few days ago, when the tv no longer recognized it. I thought the problem was the streaming stick itself, so I bought a Roku device. But it is presenting the same issue: When going to the Source page the streaming device won't show in the HDMI3...

    The future of VR input devices?

    Hi everyone. Recently I started to get involved in VR, and now I use controllers from Valve that allow you to move your hands in the game a little more realistic than other controllers (from other manufacturers of VR helmets or gamepads). Don't you think that controllers in the usual sense are...

    HZ980B stuttering on internal apps and external devices

    Hello all, I appreciate there are various threads discussing pull-up/down/ratios and all sorts, but I'd like to ask a somewhat simpler question. I like to have the Intelligent Frame Creation set to max as I enjoy the smoothness (life is smooth, not a series of flickering stills). I realise...

    Looking for devices that repell burglars

    Hi, I’m looking for ideas for extending my alarm system with devices that I can remotely activate to make burglars stop what they’re doing while the police is on its way. I’ve installed loud sirens. A smoke generator proved too expensive. A tear gas generator is illegal in my country so that...

    New router (or something else) to handle all my smart home devices - thoughts?

    I think I've now got the stage where I really need a better strategy for handling all the smart home/iot devices that I have accumulated over the last 2 years.

    Hi guys. The 25 smart devices can have their own router if I go the WiFi route, just not sure how much interference to expect with my main network. Thoughts please, WiFi or Zigbee? I'll probably end up using home assistant as a hub ES

    Lumagen Pro no audio with 4K devices

    My 4K Denon amp developed a fault so I have temporarily swapped back in my non-4K Sony STR-DA5800ES amp. All my sources feed into a Lumagen Radiance Pro 4242+ which as usual feeds the audio to the amp and the video to the 4K projector. My non-4K Sky HD box still works fine with the Lumagen...
