News - Intel Brings Discrete IR Back to NUC5i5RYK

Discrete IR On/Off are a critical part of my home theater setup. Without them, I can't include an "On" command in my startup macro for the HTPC which leads to all sorts of "training issues" with the other users in the house. So I was pretty upset when Intel killed the feature in a recent BIOS release. Fortunately they were able to fix the issue in the latest (0348) release. Users will now need to select the type of remote they're using in BIOS; with everyone benefiting. Huzzah!!!

A big thanks to everyone at Intel who worked on this issue and got it sorted. Word has it that it will also be coming in a future release for the D54250WYK, which also has this issue.

Review - SiliconDust HDHR4-2DT Dual DVB-T/T2 HD Network Tuner

SiliconDust HDHR4-2DT Dual DVB-T/T2 HD Network Tuner

We’ve been waiting for the SiliconDust HDHR4-2DT network attached DVB-T2 tuner for a couple years now. In the meantime, anyone leveraging the UK’s digital terrestrial television networks have had to make an unwelcome choice between pretending HD content doesn’t exist, or living without the inherent flexibility of an Ethernet enabled TV tuner. With the £100 device finally hitting shelves, it is time to see if the HDHR4-2DT can deliver the same stability and capability SiliconDust’s US customers have enjoyed for several years.

Staying on Wi-Fi's cutting edge has been expensive over the last couple years, with the major improvements in software and features only coming to the top end of the market.

The R6400 is intended to slot into the R6300's current position, adding external antennas, and updated SoC to features like Beamforming+, NETGEAR Genie, ReadySHARE Vault and AirTime Fairness previously found on their top-end devices.

Blog - The Amazon Fire TV and it’s use while traveling

With all of the media players and sticks out there to choose from, one of the more popular ones on the rise for many reasons is the Amazon Fire TV and AFTV stick. With their small size you can really take either one out while traveling without having to hook up a laptop and what not to stream entertainment. So I started out the testing of the unit back in February the first time around for a getaway staying at a hotel. Because that particular hotel had a website that you had to click on to accept their terms and services and enter their password, we were unable to use the AFTV because there was no way to launch a browser within the AFTV at the time. So we were stuck using the laptop which ended up working out fine anyway, but I have to say it was very disappointing. The impression that I had received from the units small size, portability and the way advertised is that it would give you the ability to use them out on the road while traveling. Maybe it was my wrong impression and then an update happened.
