I've been researching online video to bring it to my TV at home. I subscribe to Netflix, so that is the first thing I looked at. From my computer, on a 3Mb DSL service, the quality is all over the place. Some very good, others suck badly, but what all of it seems to have is stop-motion often...

DVR help ? by [email protected]
I recently got a CCTV security camera with a DVR. It came with no manual, only a CD. The instructions have many typographical errors. The package says you can see your cameras from a smart phone. The instructions were clear as mud.

OT Question by [email protected]
But I know there's a lot of brain power here. At least I hope so. I mean, I hope this group isn't dead too. I haven't seen any new posts here in quite a while. Okay, so last year, I built a new computer. I put in two Samsung 500Gb solid state drives which are drives C and D. I also installed a...
