I don't see your picture. Are these recessed bulbs in cans? Can you post some dimensions or get us some pictures? I have replaced all my cans, spanning from 3" to 5" with LEDs with success. I just...

I can't imagine anything working better than the Shield. I now have three of them, and zero HTPCs.

One caveat - Amazon's client has to be sideloaded and only supports 2.0, if that matters to you....

It takes me zero time to remove the commercials and transcode. MCEBuddy does it for me. I don't lift a finger. There is only one show that it doesn't work right for, Top Gear US. For whatever reason,...

My 1541s were only 170k. You wanted an Epyx Fast Load cart to get them to read fast though. :)

Well, I was talking about gaming controllers. I do Atari 2600 emulation on mine, so we need controllers. Keeps the wear and tear down on my vintage gear.

Use MCEBuddy. Delete the commercials and transcode the videos to something with a smaller container. My processed files take up about 25% of the original.

SPMC does bitstreaming of all formats right now. Kodi you'll have to find one of the uncompressed audio bitstream forks. It has been working for a long time, this is nothing new. I don't know about...
