    Cost-effective way to get Plex onto TV?

    Are you able to change Plex themes on the Roku? Do you get all the Plex content like your channels? I've seen some awesome sales on Rokus.. one of the things I enjoy the most on the Plex is uniform UI/content across all my devices.

    I had similar options when I was in school. They are expensive certs compared to Microsoft and Cisco why may have more value, but it can't hurt you. Total Seminars has different voucher prices. Save 10 or 20% if I recall.

    Video Conferencing 3 users, 3 sites

    That tripod is great.. have to bookmark that. I've been using IPEVO document cameras which are like web cams built into a table top stand. They are nicely designed and have an optional carry case.. only thing is you need an external microphone. Looks like you have a nice, simple solution for...

    Going to college in a couple of years, need some help from you guys.

    Start reading as much as you can about jobs in IT. Sign up for job alerts and follow things on Monster, Indeed and etc. Start tinkering with things at home even if it's setting up a firewall on an old tower PC. See people talking about VDI? Google that to figure out what the heck it is and how...

    Purchasing an iPad 3, how to tell it's 2nd generation

    That's what I've been trying to find. Confirmed: simply look on the back of the box and it will say lightning cable included. iPad 4? I'm not sure if that's official because Apple calls it the iPad with Retina display and doesn't distinguish by name between the two versions. Either way I have...

    Purchasing an iPad 3, how to tell it's 2nd generation

    So there's two generations of the iPad 3, the one released in March then the one in October that got the new A6 processor and lightning connector. Does anyone know how to tell from the package if you have the newest one? I'm going to get one this week. (Long story short I have a coupon for a...

    Local Remote Controls for Display

    I know a lot of suggestions have been thrown out but you could consider Synergy. It lets you use the mouse and keyboard from one computer to control another computer when you can see that computer's display. It even behaves like having dual monitors you just move the mouse to the edge of the...

    Thinking of ditching cable for an Apple TV 3

    Don't forget to check out the HTPC sub forum for talk about streaming, storage and operating system questions. (XBMC, Plex..)

    We're in a hotel room. My dad's laptop connects to wifi. Mine does not. WHY???

    Poorly configured setup on a very high traffic network.. it happens a lot in hotels especially if they were given generic no login access.

    Is CompTIA a+ certification worth it?

    It's definitely relevant to PC repair but I don't think it will make a difference to your customers if you have it. The content that's on it is certainly important to know and to ask for from potential employees. Outside of PC repair, most companies are more interested in experience with...

    Wi-Fi & Cell phone EMF

    Not like I believe it but.. doesn't the ozone help cut down on most of that? The rest you can argue is normal.

    My router has been hacked ???

    Not broadcasting the SSID doesn't give you that much more security but it doesn't hurt either. Have you checked that the router does not respond to management requests from the outside? (From the Internet..)
