Re: Different connection setups for the DC

VGA brings a lot of improvements as well, but at the same time it has its downsides. Afaik, VGA is the only way to get your DC to display 480p. That is quite a big improvement. The single only downside it has is that some (European) games don't support VGA. :P Which is annoying because the US versi...

Re: Advice needed: FFXI 360

Well my copy off eBay turned up today. Can't complain when it cost less than a month's subscription. Well, actually, I can complain. I completely forgot about the pathetic updating system. It took ages to check all the files, and now it wants 4-5 hours to download the updates :x Imagine having to d...

Yes I need a new computer desk. This things falling apart, but I'm too lazy to go out and buy a new one, hehe. I got a DVI>HDMI and optical lead going to my 42" HDTV and 5.1 system at the other side of my room so I can use the computer on that too :)

A PC (Using a HDMI/DVI output to a HDTV :mrgreen: ). Lets face it, appleTV's wayy too restrictive on what it can and cannot play. And I cannot be arsed to convert ALL my other content to a format the appleTV will play. XBMC's excellent, but the inability to play 720p ruins it for me. Not seen mythTV...

Re: Some HDTV questions

Now, here's the next question. I'm looking at Westinghouse and LG TV's since I get good discounts on them. Any idea if either are decent brands? The best discount I get is on Insignia, but I don't think I'll go that low end. :lol: I got myself a LG 42" LCD TV And its fantastic (42LC2D I think). Pic...

Re: Advice needed: FFXI 360

The only thing that pisses me off about FFXI, is not being able to solo stuff from about lv13/14 onwards. I hate being forced to party with people. I played uptil about lv25 and stopped, but it was a lot of fun while it lasted. Tho now WoW is my main mmo timesink....love the fact that your not force...

Re: Some HDTV questions

You'll love the difference of using your 360 on a HDTV...its such a huge difference :)

I have a 720p TV, couldnt afford/wait around to 1080p set, though everything looks nice enough on 720p :p

Re: After a new ADSL2+ modem. Suggstions?

Dunno, it doesnt change it drastically by having it closer to the phone line be honest.

As for wireless adapters, imo get a usb one. Long as your computer has USB2.0 ports you wont really be at any speed loss :)

Re: After a new ADSL2+ modem. Suggstions?

Thanks for clarifying that about the router. Like I said, that can wait anyway. What it is that I'm really interested at the moment though is a new modem as I'm only getting a little over 3Mbps due to modem limitations on my ADSL2+ connection. At the mo, I'm using a Linksys WAG-200G, and it seems t...

Try running a Linux live CD, and seeing if your system still locks up while doing stuff for a prolonged amount of time. If it still does, then theres obviously something hardware related (Power supply/RAM are usually my first suspects, tho it can even be down to a single USB device, which is very la...
