Wow, can't believe there is a thread for this TV. I'm recently getting lots of HDMI in and out drops. Was considering updating the firmware. But some of these stories are scary. I don't want to make things worse. Are the people have issues a minority or majority? Lastly, the list of compatible usb devices is very limited. So far, I have no luck with the two I've tried. What are some of you using?
I have a Chromecast, so I understand how it works. But I think I'm confused regarding "mirroring" vs "casting." From my understanding, casting is when the Chromecast (Receiver) itself does the processing. Mirroring is when the source is doing the processing. For example, you can mirror the Chrome tab from your notebook to your tv, but your PC is doing the processing.
1.) So I'd like to know how the other versions out there work. Who's doing the work, Receiver or...
Interesting. But I'd like to know if the app makers for the tvpad benefit from the sales of the machine. Kinda sucks that the apps are not guaranteed. They could stop working any moment. What's the extent of the incentive for the person they hired to maintain the apps?
HDHomeRun owners, I have some question I hope you can answer.
Lets say I have the 3 tuner version. I understand that any computer will be able to record and watch on the network. My question is how does it behave when 3 people on 3 different pcs are watching? Let say one person is watching downstairs tuner A. I'm upstairs and I just fired up my pc about to watch some tv... Will there be any scenarios where there could be confusion and I mistakenly change the channels...
In the market for one more dvr and made my way to the moxi website to see how they were doing. There was no purchase option, and not even a "how to buy" or "where to buy" page. Weren't they challengers to tivo? So they're just another fly by night? I'm also curious to read many people still wanting to buy moxi products. If they bow out, what happens to software updates? Channel guide updates are not dependent on them?
Yep, I have 2 tivos myself, was thinking of a third and realized why not save a little. The cable cards are $4 with verizon, that's $48 a year. Because I own a slingbox HD also for the times when I'm in China. Now that I'm back home, I don't really use the slingbox much, but now maybe I can put it to good use. I wonder how the slingplayer app is working out for the boxee and slingbox owners? Is it good, dependable? I have 25/25 mbps with verizon.
