You would want a hard drive in Room A, since you'll be recording shows to it. You can move them to...

The Amazon Fire Stick ($40 full price, cheaper if you catch it right) is 2x as fast as Chromecast. The Fire TV (the $99 box) is a WHOLE lot faster.

Thing is, you have to determine where the lag...

Not if you want menus. You'll only be able to stream the main movie over DLNA, and even then it's not the greatest in the world. You'd be better off with a little OpenELEC at each TV if you want...

Keep in mind they are probably spoofing the sender's email address and not actually sending from their email. You have to look through the headers to determine if this is the case. I see that these...

You may have done your updates after MS pulled the update, or it may have pulled automatically before you tried playback. And it mostly affected Win7 64 bit, so if that's not your OS, you had a lower...

2830477 would not install. I've removed 3004394. It has been playing for several minutes now. Going to let it run for a while more and then I'll report back.
