My old Atari Lynx can do that too. It's a nice option for games like Klax.

I have XBMC and MediaBrowser 3 both working on my Amazon Fire TV, so I don't know what you mean by that comment.

You use Windows Media Center, which is built into Windows 7. If you have Windows 8.1 Pro, it's a $10 upgrade. Then you buy a WMC Remote (just look for WMC remote on Amazon). Or you can use a Flirc if...

Try sideloading XBMC (I used TMBC on my Amazon Fire TV) and see if that gets you what you want, if you can. I have no experience with the Roku. I have a streaming stick someone gave me to play with,...

TubeTwister is right. I should have mentioned that ComboFix is probably not for inexperienced users.

When you run TV setup, are you selecting TV? TV is not the right choice.

RAID is not the same as backup. RAID means whatever you have on the drive is what will be available in the event of the loss of a drive (not including RAID 0). So if you have a crap file, the...

The only issue is they tend to be 7200 RPM, noise and heat are less a concern in favor of speed. If you can live with the noise and heat, then there's nothing wrong with them.

Then, when I think...

I've seen this occur when you are using something more than a basic switch between the HTPC and the extender. Some smart switches (or routers) will interfere with the flow for some reason. Now that I...

I play 3D movies using a cheap Intel board with an i3 2100. The specs aren't anything special to do 3D. If you already have a PC, an ATI 5450 will do 3D and bitstreaming too, if you just want to put...

What is your goal? If you throw an ATI 5450 in there to make it work for HTPC duties (get a fanless one) you are not going to overtax your PSU. If you want a big power hungry gaming card, you might...

It has been so long since I have seen that as an option, I forgot about it. I'm on FiOS now, so that is not an option, but it was back when I had DSL. Heck even when I had cable modem, a router was...

I've found ComboFix to be more effective than CCleaner. I agree with the recommendations for Malwarebytes. Once you are done with these, you can delete them and go back to your normal routines.

I didn't notice if you said, but have you tried swapping the HDMI cables between the BD player and the HTPC?

I had a weird popping issue on my office PC when I had a bad Toslink cable.

Yes, I have it set up and running.

Now that I started thinking about this, does this issue only occur on some of the Intel NUCs, or does it occur on all of them?

I'm not sure I understand the question. If you want something from the HTPC, of course it will have to be on. So I may not understand what you are asking.
