    LG C1 & Samsung QN90A: Experiences?

    Pretty straightforward question. Anyone own either of these and have experiences that the normal reviews don't cover? I'm looking for caveats and good/bad personal experiences. I know that on paper the LG seems like the way to go, but it's about a grand more expensive (for the larger models) and...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    The title of the thread says it all. I know there were some early issues with certain models having problems with the Xbox Series X and Nvidia 3000 series. I started looking into models from Pioneer, Denon, Onkyo, Marantz, etc. but a lot of what they're pushing isn't actually available right...

    HDMI 2.1 TV sets?

    With the new consoles coming rather soon and video cards (like Nvidia's Ampere) potentially supporting it - anyone have a good resource for HDMI 2.1 TV's? Google tends to pull up old articles and most ratings sites barely mention anything about it. Even the manufacturer websites are overly...

    Test out the new/revised version of the Win10 start menu

    It works fine: https://www.neowin.net/news/not-an-insider-heres-how-you-can-get-the-new-start-menu-on-windows-10-version-2004 I'm one of those people that likes to tinker with the Win10 visual elements. I like this new look. It isn't a huge change, but it's nice and subtle. A couple of my...

    Fan settings - BIOS vs. iCue & Such

    This is one of those things I've always been a little curious about. Mainly because the two work in conjunction with one another. My motherboard (MSI Z370) has a pretty elaborate control system for setting fan curves as well as for setting fan to DC or PWM mode. In addition to that, Corsair's...

    Affordable Xbox One Pads?

    Anyone have a good source for decently priced Xbox One pads? I'm looking for new ones from Microsoft, but I don't care about the color scheme. For years I've been buying black or white ones from Best Buy or Amazon for $39. I can't seem to find one for less than $65 from a reputable retailer...

    FireTV 4K Experiences?

    I recently sold my Xbox One and am discovering that all of my other devices seem to have caveats with streaming. Either they don't do Atmos, they don't do HDR, and thanks to DRM my PC is really only worthwhile with Netflix. On paper it seems like the Amazon 4K stickls are the best option for...

    New Nvidia Driver: 442.19

    Driver notes here: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/zombie-army-dead-war-4-game-ready-driver/ Something I don't see any mention of - the Nvidia Control Panel is now a Windows 10 UWP app. It no longer appears in your control panel and there doesn't seem to be a non-UWP version of it.

    Need for Speed Heat

    I had no idea this game even existed until yesterday...but it's actually pretty good if you like the series. It's a little bit like the Underground games, but with the cops and a little bit of a plot tossed in. It's not going to win over anyone who didn't like the other games, but if you want...

    Older AIO...am I missing out on anything?

    I have a Corsair H110 that I've used for roughly 7 years with no issues. My fan settings are being handled via my mobo's BIOS and I mostly devised them based upon online recommendations and trial and error. Things seem to work fine. Are newer AIO coolers with real-time monitoring programs able...

    Windows May Update (18362.30, aka. "final") is now available

    Anyone on any insider ring has access to the final build of this right now. You can always join and then opt out after it installs, too. I just did an image back-up, so I figured I'd give it a whirl. Install only took about 15 minutes and I had no complications at all. Things actually feel...

    Can no longer enable Atmos in Windows 10?

    Weird issue. Starting on Saturday morning, I could seemingly no longer enable Dolby Atmos in Windows 10. Normally it's my default since lots of Netflix content uses it. I'm using it via the Nvidia HDMI-out. Yet now no matter what I do, it won't take. Swapping my speaker array to it doesn't...

    Legit way to watch UHD Blu-Rays with add-in graphics?

    When searching this topic online there is rarely any recent information and even less good information. Lots of forum banter, but it tends to be old or people bickering. I'm aware that everything on paper requires features that only Intel graphics have. I'm just curious if any sort of work...

    Re-installing Windows 10

    After managing to bork some things along the way, I'm thinking about starting over with a fresh Windows 10 install. I can't specifically recall, but I think I'm probably on an install that has been upgraded from Windows 7, to 8, to 8.1, to 10. The joys of imaging software. I'm good about keeping...

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

    Anyone else pick this up? It's both fantastic and kinda lame at the same time. It contains nearly arcade-perfect versions of every arcade Street Fighter to date. It also includes online play for Hyper Fighting, Super Turbo, Alpha 3, and Third Strike. On the downside, the arcade version of Alpha...

    Denon Firmware Issues?

    Anyone here have a Denon S-model receiver? Those would include the 710W and the 730H. My trusty 710W is (of course) now out of warranty and received a firmware update last week. Upon receiving it, my Xbox One immediately started having sound issues. Bitstreaming audio would randomly crap out...

    Legit alternatives to PowerAmp?

    Long story short, Android 8.1 breaks notification functionality within PowerAmp and the developer hasn’t made an update in years. Their forums borderline mirror the Valve Half-Life 3 forums. If there is an update coming, it's more than a year late and it's probably going to be another...

    Windows Update KB4058258

    Anyone else totally unable to get this thing to install? I get that one of the issues is a false install error, but I can't get it to install, period. Tried all the usual tricks (clearing update cache, stopping/starting services, SFC /scannow, etc.) to no avail. I can't get it to manually...

    Cross-platform headsets?

    When I sold my normal Xbox One and PS4 (for the X and Pro), I included the the headsets in the package. Seems neither the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X include a headset in the box, so I'm now in need of one. Are there any good ones that can plug into both controllers via an adapter? How about something...

    Soul Calibur 6 coming to Xbox One/PS4/PC in 2018

    https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2017/dec/07/soulcalibur-6-announced/ I was never a huge SC fan, but I know a lot of people who are/were. Since it's running on the same engine as Tekken 7, it should run really well across all platforms. I love that fighting games are a thing again. They're...

    Memory Cooling?

    So I just recently put together a new 8700K system and my RAM (Dominator Platinum) came with a separate cooler. Is there really any point to such a thing? I went ahead and installed it, but it's a super tight fit next to my liquid loop. So much so that it's ever so slightly slightly angled. It's...

    UHD Blu-Ray Drives for PC?

    Android One?

    https://www.android.com/one/ Anyone have any insights on whether we'll see any flagship-level phones as part of this program? It seems like a push to get stock Android on devices, but they're all entry-level (and mostly non-US) phones so far. I love the idea, but it's not much help at the moment.

    Experiences with Lineage OS?

    Subject pretty much says it all. I have a Moto X Pure that has become a liability. My battery is dying in record time, often when the battery is showing 25% or more. Battery saver mode helps, but notifications (and even getting calls) = a total crapshoot in that mode. Some users say to hold out...

    Devices that run stock Android or something VERY close

    Just curious, which devices run a stock (or really, really close to stock) version of Android? I'm looking for as little bloat and custom apps/launchers as possible. Obviously the Nexus and Pixel phones do. The Essential Phone is supposed to be really close. Lenovo/Moto devices are pretty...

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition

    I figure I might as well make a separate thread for this. After playing for a few days I'd say that it's so far so good. Granted, it IS just the WiiU version of the game with all of the DLC on the surface, Nintendo made some tweaks. First and foremost, they added classic Battle Mode options...

    PS4 VR

    Forgive me if this should be in the VR section. I didn't really see anything related to the PS4 VR in there. So I got a chance to try this out over the weekend and was (mostly) really impressed. Rush of Blood and Eagle Flight and the RE7 "Kitchen" demo provided me with the VR experience I'd...

    Hiding or placing Win10 modern apps in a folder?

    Pretty straightforward. I'm trying to clean up my "All Programs" start menu and it's littered with modern apps that I can't re-arrange, hide, or categorize. Anyone know of any tricks to make this work? I'm not looking to kill off the programs, just the icons in that menu.
