     Google's Chromecast changed the face—or at least the form factor—of media streaming when it was introduced about a year ago. However, the $35 HDMI dongle was hobbled by a lack of apps, especially compared with the likes of Roku and Apple TV. That limitation was addressed last December with the...

     As a cord cutter, I tend to watch movies far more often than television. However, the buzz around HBO's detective drama True Detective was really positive, so I figured the show was worth a shot. Last night, I fired up my Samsung Galaxy tablet and launched HBO Go, intending to watch the season...

    I saw that new Roku stick that doesn't require MHL port is coming in April. It was described as Roku 1 in a stick form and similar to Chromecast, it only requires an available HDMI port and USB for power. Unlike Chromecast, it comes with a remote control...

    It has been years since I've been on this site, and I don't have much free time to do the research so I apologize in advance. Basically I'm ready to dump cable (uverse) mostly because of cost, but I'm also on my 4th DVR in 5 years... What I'd like to do is basically get/make a media center...

    I have a Samsung HL61A750A1FXZA TV with a Denon AVR-591 Receiver on Time Warner Cable. I've put the Chromecast in the HDMI 2 of the TV (white light on). From the app, it seems to connect to my wifi but I can't 'see the code'... I've told the receiver that HDMI 2 should be associated with the...

    Just picked up the Chromecast device for our non-smart bedroom TV, mainly in order to watch YouTube and Netflix content on it. I set it up using my iPhone 5, everything went smoothly other than having to change the Zoom setting on the HDMI input I installed the Chromecast device in. I already...

     I bought a Chromecast... So far, it's pretty cool but I've JUST got it going. Time to see if I can get my Plex library streamed to it.   That's not why I'm posting, though.   I connected the Chromecast to HDMI 2 on the Sony, but it's not passing anything through to my Samsung TV. Has...

     My situation is that I don't like television so I don't want one showing in my living room. However if I want to watch a movie I keep a flat screen TV in an armoire in the room. I take it out and set it on the coffee table and plug it in. I can play movies from Netflix on my laptop using...

    I tried using my Chromecast to communicate with my Fios wifi router; i typed in the password from the router but it won't work, so i used my roomate's optimum wifi connection from a belkin router and that works good (it's an unsecure connection). I read some posts that Chromecast requires 2.5...

     Hey all,   Looking for budget AVR suggestions given the criteria below:   Room: Small/Apartment Output: Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX500 HDMI Inputs: Cable DVR, PS3, Chromecast Speakers: L/R (TriTrix, sealed cabinets) Other Notes: I will eventually grow this to a 5.1 setup when I move to a home...

     I'm about to purchase a new Marantz receiver through an accommodation program through my job. I'm between the SR5008 and SR6008 I'll be running a fairly simple stereo setup with just 2 Polk RTIA7 towers and a CD player, Turntable, TV antenna, Chromecast and PS3 hooked in, so I don't...

    So last night my two sons were over before we all go our ways after the holidays. I was playing some new music and they each had some to share so we started looking for cables to hook their phones into an analog input on my AVR. Then I realized we all have recent Android phones and I had a...

    I find entering text with a remote control tedious. I purchased a Samsung 2013 Smart TV, with keyboard, but find that none of the third party applications support the keyboard. While I could enter my WiFi password with the keyboard, a netflix search is back to the remote control. Is there a...

     Hi.   I'm not particularly updated on the A/V front, and need some help selecting good hardware for my home. I own a 42" LG plasma TV from 2008, and a Pioneer DVD player with 5.1 surround (sold as a home theater system). Both rather cheap systems, but good enough for me and my budget.  ...

     Again, I cannot apologize enough for my noob-ness, and I would have posted this on the Plex forums but its hard to get answers/responses there.   My main question is this:   Why is it that I can run MakeMKV on a disk (doesn't matter if its DVD or Blu-ray), make a huge .MKV file (around 4...
