This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

Is there any benefit visual or audio wise from upgrading a 10 year old HD cable box with one of the newer ones from the store? I get 5.1 out of it fine but audio and video distorts if the power isn't just perfect after I flip a light switch/microwave (even with a pure sine wave UPS)

I just don't want the new X1 thing that is with all the new boxes and a bunch of shit I don't need. I just want better visual and audio quality.

Thanks,

I would imagine even it's not BETTER quality, it'll be more consistent and likely lower power draw and likely faster faster menus and similar.
>>
>>61834286
I thought about the power draw issue in the back of my head. That may be much less than back then. I just hope it doesn't come with a voice remote and running and doing a bunch of X1 shit that I can't disable which will then eat up more CPU clocks.

Anyone know if you can disable all the X1 shit on the newer boxes? I wish I could get one without but thats no longer the case.

Sorry I moved off Comcast for fiber from Verizon back in 2007/2008. I've no real clue on the current box.

>The multidisciplinary team at the University of Washington isn’t out to make outlandish headlines, although it’s certainly done that. They were concerned that the security infrastructure around DNA transcription and analysis was inadequate, having found elementary vulnerabilities in OPENSORES software used in labs around the world. Given the nature of the data usually being handled, this could be a serious problem going forward.

How to take a screenshot every time the subtitles advance?

I figure that anime is about 70% static images with voice overs. I can read faster than it takes for someone to say the words. So if I can take a screenshot every time the subtitles advance I could blast through a 25 minute anime episode in about 2 minutes. Sort of like converting the episode into a manga. I only plan to do this for shows I don't like so that I'm not wasting my time on them.

Thanks for your help

you could write a script to demux out the subs, examine the timings, then run ffmpeg at each start point to capture a screenshot

Did you open a support ticket? Either asking for an update or to cancel the order.

Out of curiosity, where did you order it from?
