1  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Getting ready to cut the cord on: September 16, 2014, 09:38:33 PM
HTPC is built, but missing the most important component... The Tuner.  I don't have access to cablecard (thanks comcast and encryption, + fee) so I settled for OTA.  I have the attenae, but now need to decide on what tuner I should get.  I really would like a 2 tuner or more...

I've looked at the Haugepauge WINTV 2250 + 2255 as well as the HDhomerun Dual.  These seem to be popular.

I've heard the hdhomerun runs hot and can have issues, and heard signal problems with the haugepauge.

Any other tuners you recommend?  How's your experience with the above?

Way too many penalties are being called this year and it's only week 2.

By rule the niners were guilty of many of them but the rule changes suck. Now more than ever the refs are having a say in how the game is played.

Case in point was the would be 60 yard td run by Gore that was called back for illegal hands by Boldin. Replay clearly showed that it wasn't the case but it didn't matter, they already called it.

But in the end the 49ers committed way too many penalties and turnovers.

Great comeback by the bears, with a little help.

Cutler took a bad shot to the ribs and still marched them down for a td.


Marshall was there when they needed them.

I'm level 8 now, and just started with the Moon. Things got stupid there in the gameplay department. Enemies on hoverbikes are suddenly coming after you, and you can barely fight back since your regular weapons don't do any worthwhile damage to them and your own hoverbike doesn't even have any weapons. It forces you to run around looking for a spare bike, which tends to trigger more enemies that you have to fight off in the middle of all this. Annoying, to say the least.

For anyone looking for story or setting, this isn't really the right game. It's very clear that all effort has gone towards the gameplay itself. The story is disjointed and basic at the moment, while the setting feels empty and barren, with almost no personality. The social hub is so empty and pointless that they might as well have just gone with a menu instead. Most MMOs have more meaningful social hubs than this. There's nothing there but a bunch of NPCs standing in place, giving or selling you items or missions while maybe saying one line of dialogue when you approach them. They won't even say anything of interest when you hand them mission items, which is a very wasted opportunity. I'd love to be able to engage these people in dialogue, but it appears this isn't that kind of game at all. Any backstory or detail you're looking for about these characters has to be fished out of the Grimoire in your web browser.

lame lame lame.

I was hoping for a good sci-fi game.  I knew I shouldn't have trusted Bungie to do that.

I'm looking forward to hearing impressions on solo play, since that's likely how I'll be playing most of the game. I'm more interested in the story and the world than anything.

From what I've been hearing, the story is at Diablo 3 levels of crappiness, which is crappy indeed.

Yeah so far it's nothing special. 

so it's like Halo.

All they need now is repetitious level design and we have a clone with a different name!

So we all know this win was from Romo's mistakes.

Niners need to shore up their defense.  Kap looked better than he did in preseason, but he needs to do more to sustain the drives.  More importantly, they need to stop making penalties.  Ahmad Brooks...  However alot of those illegal hands calls against the 49ers were highly questionable.  If the NFL keeps going down this route they are going to lose their popularity over time.

Lynch was crazy good last night and Percy...I love that he's proving all of the doubters from last year wrong.  You could hear an undercurrent of "why are we keeping this guy when he hasn't played more than 1 game this year?" until the end.  Now it looks like the best bet we made and also answers the question of why we let Tate go. 

I don't think anyone doubts his abilities.  We doubt he will stay healthy.

The game is fun.  Presentation is pretty good except for the announcers.  But if feels like watching a tv broadcast with the overlays and such.

There are alot of modes to play in.  I tried to doing connected franchise online, but realized I'm going to have a hard time matching people's schedules so I stuck to offline franchise.  Ultimate Madden is fun.  It's like magic the gathering meets fantasy football.  You collect player cards through either real world money, or by playing the game.  I refuse to spend more $$$ so I stick with just playing.  I haven't played much, but so far it's fun because they're like mini-games.  If I don't have a block of time, I can play that.

I think the coolest feature and I'm sure it's not new, but it's new to me, is that you can actually download sliders/rosters and have it applied without having to manually set them up like in the old days. 

I played a few online games and it's smooth.  Probably my best experience in an online sports game.  But still can't get rid of people cheesing.

Ketchup on hot dogs is a must.  My wife puts mayonaisse on hers.  I love mayonaise, but not on a hot dog.

My dad makes his hot dogs this way

Butterfly the hot dog, lay the flat side down on foil
Cover the tops in BBQ sauce
Place it in the oven, and turn on the broiler.
Let it blacken, but don't overly burn it.
While cooking, make some toast
Cut some lettuce
When the hot dogs are done, make a sandwich.

So yummy
