MP1 MP2 WOL DE
Based entirely on hearsay... I was under the impression that Intel networking chips are regarded as amongst the best available, either integrated on the motherboard, or as a separate PCI or PCI-Express network card. I have an integrated Intel network adapter on my Dell motherboard, and I recently installed an Intel PCI card to give...

I would like to use an Intel Compute Stick (Intel Atom Z3735F 4 x 1.33 GHZ, 2GB RAM, 32 GB flash, Windows 10) to run an MP1 client with a 5GHz WLAN connection to my MP1 TV Server (see my current System Specs). I have seen at least 1 post from a member using this processor (in a box, not a stick) and also the thread on PIPO (which...

I thought you were pointing it out as as alternative for my current AMD board. Would probably look more towards the 1155 socket boards.

Bass is the hardest freq to reproduce so the more you off load the speakers the easier it is for them. But it's a balance. If you set the xover too high then you start to lose directional sound and the sound will be split. Also if you offload too much the subwoofer may struggle and will clip and distort. If the sub is not a very good...

MP1 MP2 HTPC tease DE
Some update about that graphics card. Since that hardware upgrade I did notice that my HTPC had a new annoying noise even when idle. I thought it was the new CPU heatsink and fans. I was always going to replace the fans on that GPU to lower the noise while playing AAA games and got around doing it the other day. You can very easily...

Yes, exactly. You should be able to get a standard DVB-C tuner with a CI module/slot. For example: http://www.buydvb.net/tbs5881-dvbt2tc-tv-tuner-ci-usb-box-p-101.html?cPath=4 ...and a CAM that can decrypt Nagravision. You put the smartcard in the CAM, put the CAM in the CI slot, install MP (or other DVB software), scan for...

MP1 MP2 Guleek i8 DE
in a different part of the MePo forums, see link, I gave my comments about using a Win 8.1 Tablet using the same type of CPU/chipset. I had mixed results, 720p (1280x720) programs played ok, but 1080i (1920x1080) programs had frame drop problems. Have not tried the Guleek-i8, not sure if that would work better than the tablet I tried...

Hi. Have no experiences with Gigabyte Brix but as this is the same CPU/GPU I don't expect any problems with. To have a VESA mount option is a nice gift too. You can add a mSATA SSD for Windows and a 2,5" HDD for storage to this mini. A nice combination and probably an replacement for your Server too (if you have enough space with a 2...

Your new AMP may a) work with the lip sync feature just fine - I dount it B) vasilich solution should work.

I use DVB-T. DVB-IP does not take any extra toll... unless you have to decrypt the channels, in which case your CPU may be the limitation. Otherwise the limit could be the bandwidth available from your provider... in which case upgrading to the fastest computer in the world won't help you.
