    Best way to angle center channel?

    What is the best way to "angle" a large center channel so that it points at the listener's ears when sitting in an easy chair. You can see my center channel in the picture below. The center of the center channel is 16" above the floor. I need to get that pointed at the listeners ear. My...

    Need advice on the best way to handle e-mail

    I need a little advice on e-mail solutions. I understand that these days no one uses their ISP assigned e-mail addresses. However, it was back sometime in the 90's when Comcast first arrived in my neighborhood so I've been with the same ISP ever since. Back then, you'd create a few e-mail...

    Ethernet Cable Recommendation

    Thanks to everyone who chimed in, got me steered in the right direction, and offered information and advice. After the advice here, I've elected to switch gears and instead of going with my electrician, I'm going to try a local small business that does home network and home theater wiring as...

    Ethernet Cable Recommendation

    Thanks kindly for the help and advice. Its much appreciated. So it looks like I'll stick with Cat5e or Cat6 based on your advice. I think I'd rather go with Cat6 as all the other cables I have lying around are also Cat6. With regards to knowing how to properly install Cat5e vs. Cat6 - does...

    Ethernet Cable Recommendation

    I've recently moved into a rental home and the ISP that serves this neighborhood offers Metronet Fiber Optic Internet and my package is a Gig speed package. I've previously always had comcast cable internet so Fiber is new to me. The fiber optic line comes through the outer wall into the house...

    Is there something wrong with my 5950x?

    Thanks! Maybe I'll go ahead and give that a shot. This might be a stupid question but do you happen to know which settings in the BIOS I should set to enable it. What did you set to enable yours? When I look through my BIOS (ASUS Crosshair VIII Dark Hero) I see PBO mentioned in several...

    Is there something wrong with my 5950x?

    Thank you!!! Thats greatly appreciated! I'm so used to my previous Intel 3770K world where, while it had 4 cores, it was either boosting or it wasn't. It was alot simpler to look at the numbers and realize it was performing as it should. It was overclocked to 4.4 and I'll I'd have to do is...

    Is there something wrong with my 5950x?

    Hello. I've recently just built two new systems. One with an 5900X and one with a 5950X. These are my first AMD systems and it had been almost 10 years since I built a machine (my last machine was an intel 3770K). I've run both systems on Aida64 stability test for about 2 and a half hours...

    LG 38gn950-b Driver?

    Does anyone happen to know the correct driver for the 38gn950-b? The owners manual that came with the monitor specified that LG recommends you install 3 pieces of software: The OnScreen Control Software, the UltraGear Control Center, and the Windows Driver. There are no drivers at all that...

    Question on FPS vs Multiple Displays

    Wow. That was very kind of you to look that up. Thank you! To simplify matters, I decided to try using my laptop instead of a desktop PC/graphics card. Here is the setup: 1) Laptop (Windows desktop resolution 1920x1200) to AVR via HDMI then AVR to ASUS VG278H 1080p monitor via HDMI. This...

    Question on FPS vs Multiple Displays

    Thanks Ebernanut :) Sorry to say that I don't quite follow. Perhaps I should try and describe better.... I set up the following test just as its a simpler setup then all the "sidecar" stuff and such above. Here is my setup. I have a PC with its video card connected to the input of the...

    Question on FPS vs Multiple Displays

    Thank you Ebernanut. You were 100% right. I'm so glad you chimed in when you did or I might have spent the better part of the day farting around with this thing trying to figure out why it won't work. You were right: The 1440p monitor couldn't see the HDMI signal from the receiver. It was...

    Question on FPS vs Multiple Displays

    Please forgive me if you've already seen this thread in the video card forum as I really wasn't sure where to post it or where I might get the question to the right people. I've got kind of a weird question here and I wasn't even sure where to post it...whether it was a GPU question, a display...

    Question on FPS vs Multiple Displays

    I've got kind of a weird question here and I wasn't even sure where to post it...whether it was a GPU question, a display question, or an audio question. So I'll try here and hopefully someone here smarter than me (which is probably most of you anyway) will know the answer. If not maybe I've...
