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.
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.

What did OP mean by his post?
What would technology be like today if this man would have won /g/?
Every piece of software would be a botnet and free software wouldn't exist because freedom of thought leads to disobedience and dissidence.
On the plus side most software would probably end up being free as in beer due to government subsidies.

That's the only way they can compete. Drive clockspeeds and temps into the stratosphere. Don't forget to add shitty paste under the lid so it's near impossible to OC.
What does /g/ think about hackintoshes?
>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.
Freetards on suicide watch!
so..you have to bioengineer an organism that looks and acts like a human being, with DNA arranged in a specific way to be able to use a vulnerability in the software?
this is a new level of paranoia
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
How does it make you feel?

Just switched to DuckDuckGo because of bangs and because Google asks me to enter the captcha almost every time I try to search something. It's so fucking good, I don't even care if it's a honeypot.
