Re: My man cave design

Re: Man Cave

Hmmm...

Private privy, TV, a gun safe, and a dog bed?

Re: learn me about hd tv antennae

TV Fool (http://tvfool.com) can give you a lot of detailed info for setting up a TV antenna in your particular location.

Re: HD Antenna

As I said, all of my local broadcasters were nice enough to bunch all of their antennas right next to each other. So I can get everything by pointing in one direction.

Re: Coming over to the dark side

There's problems with the Navi-X site. Whufclee has posted a fix (alternate home page for Navi-X) on YouTube which seems to help.

Re: Coming over to the dark side

The menu is working fine. I re-installed with the usb option. Overclocked to "Super" in the RaspBMC settings add-on. I can stream 720p video directly from the internet just fine, no real buffering...

I have an adequate power supply now and I've set the RaspBMC overclock setting to "fast." Tried "super" and that bricked it. So, after a fresh install, I've added a usb stick to help the speed and...

Re: Coming over to the dark side

I noticed that.

That's why I'm considering gutting my old silver aTV case and stuffing it all in there. It's at least 4 times larger than the RPi card, so I should be able to fit the card, a usb...

Re: Xmbc on hacked ATV1
