Apparently, on 12th-gen processors, Intel has deprecated its Software Guard Extensions (SGX) technology, and this impacts DRM-protected 4K UHD Blu-ray playback.

I've had this 42" WXGA Magnavox 42MF531D37 LCD television for a while now and was thinking about just using it as a monitor. The problem is that when hooking it up to the computer, Only 1024x768, 1280x720, 1920x1080, and a handful of other (non-native) resolutions work; it seems to reject its...
Hi everyone! This is my first topic, that I've started here.
I have processor i3-3220 with intel graphics hd 2500 (intel intru 3d included).
Right now i want to buy 3D monitor and i don't want to buy 3D TV or projector. Main goals are: watch 3D BD, movies and photos (without gaming).
I have got a Samsung LED tv at home and I have hooked up different computers to it through out the years. One thing I noticed is that for every machine I have connected to the TV I always get a different color calibration (color tone or whatever you want to call it). All the machines...
I'm about to embark on building a new HTPC to replace my old Core 2 Duo system. I can't decide between a new A10-7850k or an i3-4130?
1) Local viewing of ripped BR and DVD. Possibly move to LiveTV. View pictures/music thru WMC too
2) Maybe HuluPlus or Netflix
I'd been getting an annoying amount of Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) failures/shutdowns for many months now. It was often enough that it annoyed me, but not so often that I had a strong enough a motivation to begin considering stripping everything down and starting fresh (because it...
Might be a stupid question but is it possible to estimate Handbrake encoding speed for processor y if processors x and y different benchmark tests are known?
If processor x encoded with certain settings at certain speed, is it possible to estimate how fast processor y will encode...
We've got a 780G chipset HTPC (2.5GHz dual-core AMD if memory serves) at the moment with a 7750 GPU and I'm going to upgrade it when the tax return comes.
All I need to purchase I think is a motherboard, RAM and CPU as I have the case, SSD, hard drives, etc.
I'm leaning towards a Pentium...
I am building an HTPC with A6 6400K and 4gb of ram 1600Mhz.
Is it powerful enough for
- 3d bluray (do i need special mobo for this?) or 3d movies in general
- 10bit 1080p encoded video(mainly anime)
- 4k video (no a priority but still would be happy to be future proof as i...
I originally sought(and got) great help on a $500 HTPC in this thread . However that escalated quickly and I ended up doubling the budget and doing the HTPC I really wanted.
Currently Under Construction- Build in Progress

Lately I've been talking to my AVS pals about digitizing my audio to FLAC, and my video's which are mostly Blu Ray to what ever format I can get the best visual out come, not sure what is the equivalence for movies is call “MKV something”?
The convince, and storing most of my music...
So as we all know, Intel has a setting in their iGPU control panel which allows you to select the quantization range (limited or full) that is most appropriate for you display.
But as we all know, this setting doesn't actually do anything for most people. It seems to always use limited...
The time has come.
Tiiiime to upgrade the current HTPC to a sleek, more-advanced, more-efficient son of a gun with the new parts that will be available within a month or two. Can you believe that it will be here that fast? Haswell is right around the corner! With Haswell, we have...
I have an aging E7200 dual core Intel system - and all that comes with it (USB2, SATA2, etc). I have an ATI 6750 vid card, as well as a Ceton tuner. I also have a SATA3 add in card because I am running many hard drives and an optical drive (literally 10 drives total).
It has been giving me...
Holy cow !!
If you have not tried it please do so.
I am doing MPC-HC + MadVR + SVP.
I've messed around a couple times before but always quit. I never tested a cartoon.
Played a few 1080p animation to test it out-
The difference was extreme.
I have dual monitors so I synced both...
I just did it again and ordered parts to build yet another HTPC.
I built this:
2 x ($48.99) ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
$97.98 (+10% off = 44$) (Bought an extra.. lol )
