SSD refurbished drive - what caveats by Yes

Record From Set Top Box by Don[_23_]
Can anyone give me some ideas of what video capture devices are compatible with cable TV high definition set top boxes & DVRs? Preferably a device that can accept audio/video from an HDMI cable. Do you need any other software besides the software that comes in the box? Thanks

Cute: My computer now talks by Flasherly[_2_]
32" monitor is gone now that I'm waiting on shipment of a 23" $100 AOC replacement for this 19" NEC. Hopefully 23" will adequately cover a more comfortable resolution adjustment to program size ratios. So are the 32" monitor speakers I'd hooked up to my soundcard. Found some "laptop" speakers...

Intel G33 motherboard's AHCI not detecting hard disks by Mr. Man-wai Chang
What could cause it? PC is a HP m9088hk. The SATA has 3 modes: IDE, AHCI and RAID. Now only IDE mode detected the 250G hard disk! The SATA DVD burner was not affected, working both in IDE and AHCI modes. The SATA cable seemed to be fine as well. -- @[email protected] Remain silent. Nothing from...

Newegg by geoff
I ordered some items from Newegg and noticed that one item is coming from a reseller. I tried resellers on Amazon and generally (99.9% of the time) had bad experiences. I learned that if Amazon isn't sending it then order it a different way. The resellers on Newegg are also on Amazon. Newegg...

OT Your own personal weather radar (USA) by John Doe
Worth mentioning again IMO. WeatherScope is free to PC users (probably still $10 for smart phones). It is ultra configurable. Naturally I use a black background with mostly white lines (for streets, city and state boundaries, etc). The rain shows up as various colors from green to red. If you...

OT The death of the home stereo system by Metspitzer
(CNN) -- For many years, it was a rite of fall. You moved into your dorm room or new apartment. You started unpacking the car. And the first thing you set up in your new place was the stereo system: receiver, turntable or CD player, tape deck and speakers. The wires could get tangled, and...

Easus Diskcopy by Laurence[_3_]
i just used Easus Diskcopy to copy from a 500Mb drive to a 2tb drive with the hope of resizing the partitions afterwards to get more space. But on completion no partitioning tool will give me any more space because BIOS only recognizes the new drive as 500Mb - an exact image of the old one. what...

OT Walmart in bed with Amazon by John Doe
I thought shopping at Amazon meant saving money and not giving business to Walmart, but started noticing too many of the "site to store" prices were precisely the same (to the penny) as they are on Amazon. Apparently stuff ships from Amazon's warehouse to Walmart stores. Probably not a good...
