    UDP-203 Network File Tree Question

    Linksys hasn't updated this router in over a year. I've been waiting for new firmware that would support modern hard drives, but alas, they are stuck in the 1990s with only MBR support. So no firmware updates have happened.

    DLNA Server and UDP-203: Navigation Changed and became too complex

    When I first set up my UDP-203 in April, and a DLNA server on one of the Linksys 3200ACM routers, navigating to "network" menu was simple and easy. I'd select Network and then my DLNA server would show up as a yellow penguin icon. I'd click that, and it'd got to the Media drive and I'd only have...

    UDP-203 Network File Tree Question

    It seems odd that the folder structure would change on its own. And maybe Oppo should consider programming some sort of shortcut button, perhaps the number buttons, to jump to various alphabet letters in the folder, for large folders. Say, pressing '5' takes you to the 'M' titles and '9' takes...

    UDP-203 Network File Tree Question

    That's pretty much how his file tree works, but it doesn't explain why mine changed without warning from a simple, easy to navigate structure, into a complex, many levels deep, nested structure. It also doesn't explain why the icon disappeared from the SMB server device. I don't know if this is...

    UDP-203 Network File Tree Question

    When I first got my UDP-203, using the DLNA server built into my Linksys WRT3200ACM router, the server drive would show up as a Penguin icon similar to LINUX's icon and opening that would take me right to the media drive, very few nesting levels. Something happened after a couple of weeks in...

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    If it's got flying creatures, I am sure my daughter will like it. She's a big Gamera fan and former Toothless fan.

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    I met a guy in my daughter's Taekwondo class who told me about that book in 2015. He has an autistic son and found that a lot of the behavior problems were mitigated by going off wheat products. LOL, I won "best read of the week"!

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    I'll suggest that new Bladerunner moving to my wife--she's the one who buys the American flicks--I only buy anime. I'm working hard to minimize the negativity in my life. I think that cancer is the body's way of saying "life is hopeless" and giving up. That's why traveling, eating good food and...

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    I have the original 1980 Blade Runner, but I heard the new remake was awful so I steered clear of it. U-571 has lots of explosions, but that soundtrack almost ended our marriage! The wife did not appreciate it at all. She bought Gravity last year on BD, but I should tell her about the 3D...

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    My favorite 4K flicks lately are the ones I shot with my wife's Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 drone from DJI. Lately, we're seeing a lot of blue in our aerial videos and that's because of all the tarps covering damaged houses (we had tornadoes come through here on May 18). The only two Ultra HD titles we...

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    The original owner was some retail store down south. I doubt they'd care, though if they had sent it for service before selling, they could have gotten a much better price. Sheer luck for me.

    What's the best projector for under $35,000

    3D is wonderful. I was a skeptic and had a very negative attitude toward it until I tried it. The only problem is the content is lacking. But we have a half dozen 3D movies that look good. The experience is quite a bit more dramatic than I expected. The flat plane of the screen disappears and it...

    HOW I GOT A $15,000 4k PROJECTOR FOR $6500

    I bought this B-stock Sony VPL VW765ES projector on eBay, originally for $7500, haggled down from the asking price of $9900. It was supposed to come with a new, spare bulb, as the projector was a store demo that had 2600 hours on it. When the projector shipped, the extra lamp didn’t come with...

    Looking for 4K Version of Zektor MAS7.1 Switcher

    I've gotten myself a lucky great deal (1/2 retail) on a store demo VPL VW675-ES true 4K projector from Sony. I have a Oppo UDP-203 en route to me, arriving Wednesday. I've upgraded all my cables and put in a new HDMI 4K/60P switch for my two video editing workstations to drive the projector...

    Relating Distortion Percent (%) to dB

    According to this and other articles on the topic, the human listener has quite a challenge identifying distortion: This article measured several loudspeakers and presented a table at relatively low SPLs:
