    U8G Processing Power/Image Quality: Built-in OS vs Fire TV 4k Stick

    Using TM to migrate - same OS needed?

    Just a quickie, home with my new M1 MBA and going to migrate using TM from my 2015 MBA. I read somewhere that to use TM for migration, the latest backup must be using the same OS as the machine you are going to migrate to. Is this the case as my old one isn't yet on Big Sur.

    Question Saphi OS

    Do people think that Philips will drop Saphi from their line-up in the next couple of years? They don't seem to have put the effort into supporting it that, for instance, Samsung and LG have in developing there operating systems. I seems to me that switching completely to Android would allow...

    Question Schedule conflict Recording on Web OS (Freeview, films split by a news segment)

    I’ve attached a usb drive to my tv - 49sm8600. It now successfully records programmes. But I have noticed an issue. On many tv channels, a film is split by a 5 minute news segment.

    Do retailers still sell discounted OS if you buy hardware from them?

    Back in the day, some of the big English retailers used to sell you a discounted (OEM) version of Windows if you brought things like hard discs or motherboards from them. Are there any that still do this? I'm only really interested i the larger retailers, not Amazon\eBay sellers?
