Hard Core Computer Tech New to the AV World
Hi there, I'm Travis. I have a great deal of experience with computer hardware, software, and networking, but only recently purchased my first receiver, an Onkyo TX-NR838. I am hoping to learn a great deal here and will probably be asking a few questions.
- windows 10 pro pc - quad-core hyperthreaded 3.2GHz CPU 24GB of RAM and 32TB of local RAID 5 storage with an nvidia gtx 970 ssc card with HDMI 2.0 out to play [email protected] video
- onkyo av receiver tx-nr838 - audio in from pc is connected to 7.1 polk audio surround speaker configuration and video in from pc uses hdmi 2.0 pass through mode from pc to monitor [email protected]
- viewsonic vp2780 - lcd display running at 2160p 60hz YCbCr 4:4:4 via hdmi 2.0
The PC is custom, built for photo-editing in Adobe Lightroom and home theater use. Windows 10 Pro runs on a pair of Samsung SSDs in RAID 0 so it is fairly snappy. Local fault tolerant storage array consists of 6 8TB Seagate archival hard drives in RAID 5 with hot spare.
