    Advice on testing replacement OLED panel

    My trusty LG B6 OLED tv is having its panel replacing after a random vertical line appeared on the screen. Given my old panel was pretty damn good for four and a half years, with no screen burn in or other issues, I’m a little paranoid over the replacement not being to par (I’m amazed they can...

    Road testing cars

    Over the last week I've test driven three different cars. Two Peugeots and a Citroen. I've been a customer of the Citroen garage for many years, but at no time have they ever reminded me that my cars lease is coming up for renewal. The difference between the two garages was a lot, the Peugeot...

    Question How do you test soundproofing?

    Hi all I'm building a cinema room, and I want to test how much sound leaks out through it at each stage of the build. I plan to buy a sound level meter like this one (recommendations for a good one on a budget welcome): What I don't know is what we should use to play the test sounds, what...

    Can I input a signal & direct it to any output?

    For testing purposes is there some set of Decoder settings that allow me to input a L + R signal and direct it exclusively to any of the 6 or 8 channels my receiver supports? I'm overwhelmed by the manual and something like this (mono signal >> any channel) doesn't seem to be covered.

    Capacity Testing of new SDHC cards

    Probably an old topic but having bought some new 16Gb cards ( before they become obsolete / expensive per Gb), I find I need to test them. From my Master copies one folder is 13Gb which looks about right. I formatted the card FAT32 (as I suspect this is the format the Camcorder will use )-...

    New memory stick testing...odd behaviour

    Just bought a SanDisk Ultra Flair 32 GB USB 3.0 stick and been testing it with crystaldiskmark and usb flash benchmark, with both giving similar results. That is, when I first plug the stick in, I get results about one third of those expected. If I then physically remove (software eject...

    Testing power leads with non contact ac detector

    Is it worth it, or is it nonsense? This guy seems to suggest that they shouldn't 'leak': A non contact AC detector is an inexpensive item to buy, so I could get one and test to see if any of my cables are 'leaking'. But I am confused as to whether that is a meaningful test. I suppose it is...
