  1. Frosty Needs Help

    Do you have any programs running in the background that continuously check themselves or check other programs? If a program is trying to write to the HDD it will stop the Defrag every time! Doing a repair to windows could possibly fix your problem. If you have a file that is missing or corrupted a repair could fix that! Curiosity, if you stay on the computer and continue using it does not lockup? How long before it locks up at idle?
  2. Orange Box

    So you guys seem to like Portal!?! I definitely want HL2 Episode 2, so my question is..... Does Portal make it worth the price of the orange box or should I just stick to HL Epi 2?
  3. Bruceleeeon's Sig!?!

    I Hear Ya!
  4. Bruceleeeon's Sig!?!

    Looking at your sig I'm guessing you're not much of a Micheal Vick fan? I seen a headline on the net the other day saying something about him ordering "Poor Performing Dogs" to be shot! I also read it is expected he will plead guilty to a plea bargain in the near future. If everything I've read is true I hope he gets some jail time! (IMHO) Just so everyone knows......... My opinion is not the opinion of COD or anyone here at COD! Its is just that, My Opinion!
  5. New HTPC

    For HTPC use its fine! I dont think I'd suggest using it for gaming. Its original intention is for HTPC usage! As for the operational distance the 3M it states is way understated! I can use it at 25-30' not in line of sight and probably further in line of sight!
  6. New HTPC

    Its not a track ball, its a thumb operated joystick! http://www.btc.com.tw/english/news_15.htm
  7. Have any of you guys thought about N?

    Check this out! Yeah I know its from Belkin but it's still cool! http://www.belkin.com/n1vision/intro/ $199
  8. New HTPC

    I use a wireless keyboard that has a joystick controller for mouse functions. Its a so so board but it works fine and suits its purpose.
  9. New HTPC

    Digital Cable and Sattelite TV makes it difficult to use PVR functions without MCE and a 3rd party IR blaster program to get the STB to change channels for each program being recorded! I only have 1 STB and use analog cable in the rest of the house. I'd love to dump Charter Cable but it would cost me more to convert to sattelite and make it difficult to record LOST, Traveler, The Nine, etc... Being a 2nd shifter I rely on recorded TV! Theres so much i would miss without my PVR! First reason for the OrigenAE X15e is no need for a Monitor! Second being the touch screen! I have 2 sets of inputs on TV(besides the standard cable input) I use one for TV out from the Video card, Desktop functions. The other is used for the TV out from the Hauppauge Tuner card. You're right it was expensive, but the case is the centerpiece of the system! I spent more on the case than I did the rest of the system! Specs.... ABIT NF7-S R2 AMD 2500 Barton 1G Memory Nvidia 5200 (PCI) Hauppauge PVR-350 40G Seagate Boot Drive and 320 Seagate for storage. OrigenAE X15e Eventually I will update the system and it will become the centerpiece of a true Home Theater! Once I get my 50" Plasma (Hopefully for Christmas)
  10. COD Folding@Home

    How do you get 2 instances of F@H to run? I can only get one to run at a time.
  11. New HTPC

    Are you going to do a Article/Guide for Media Portal? So you're only using your HTPC to view DVD's and pics? A Tuner Card would increase the capabilities of your system immensely! PVR functions alone are worth the $80 - 130 cost! I still have a VCR but I dont use it anymore! I have a dedicated HTPC for recording TV daily and a 2nd Tuner card in my main rig to record any special programs I may want to keep and/or burn to a disc!
  12. Bought the wife a new car!

    She's camera shy so even if I did have pics of her she'd be upset if I posted them on the net! You know I havent taken any pics yet. I'll see about some pics this weekend! Technologically I was snafued for a while. Seemed like I'd fix one thing and another would break! I think I have most of it fixed now so maybe I'll have more time to spend here!
  13. New HTPC

    What tuner card are you using? SageTV is probably the best. Beyond TV is pretty good also. They all work better when patrnered with MCE. I dont use MCE and have been using the software that came with my Haupauge PVR-350 and HVR-1600 Its pretty basic but it works.
  14. Bought the wife a new car!

    Bought the wife a 2004 Chevrolet Impala LS today! White on Tan! Full Power, Leather, Moon Roof, 6 Disc CD, Heated Seats, the only thing it doesnt have is the SuperCharged 3.8L V6 Its just a standard 3.8L!
