    Ultrawide vs Dual Monitors

    I took the plunge and bought an ultrawide after all, so we'll see how it goes :D. Going to put it quite far back on my desk and try snapping windows to either side like I've been trying on my smaller monitor. Here's the model I went for: https://eu.aoc.com/en/gaming-monitors/cu34g2-bk It's...

    The PCR Movies Thread!

    Is this wasn't a Christopher Nolan film I'd be a bit suspicious, but I bet this will be brilliant - I love nearly all his other stuff. "Coming to Theatres"? Do they know something that we dont? Wonder if they'll open up but have 4 seat gaps between households?

    Bargain EPIC Store Spring Sale 2020 - inc. GTA V Free

    Activation errors for me too... in fact the whole of the EPIC console is very laggy. I think it's likely overloaded atm:

    Bargain EPIC Store Spring Sale 2020 - inc. GTA V Free

    Hmmm... I wonder if it's because it's overloaded... apparently a TON of people downloaded it. Civ VI is the new free game. This is fantastic having all these great freebies!

    Outlook 365 and the rule has a condition that the server cannot handle "Stop processing more rules"

    If you are only using it as a POP3 client, I wonder if you still have the O365 account linked under File > Office Account. It might be that your subscription to O365 is shown here and it's still trying to grab rules. Does it list your work account at all on this page, either under "connected...

    Samsung TV new wont put enough signal out power for sound bar?

    Can you please try going to the TV settings and look for audio (may be under additional setting under the audio menu) - you should try and set the digital audio out audio format to "dolby digital" and see if that helps. Ideally, also disable the onboard speakers (look for a setting to only...

    Bargain POCO F2 Pro 5G Smartphone 6.67 inch AMOLED Full Screen Mobile Phone with 20MP Pop-up Front Camera - Grey HK 6GB 128GB

    That's a tasty price for those specs... I didn't realise that POCO were a Xiaomi spinoff. Have you seen any reviews for this yet? Had a quick search, but I can't see any live yet.

    Samsung TV new wont put enough signal out power for sound bar?

    Have you turned up the volume using the sound bar remote control AND the TV remote control?

    Samsung TV new wont put enough signal out power for sound bar?

    I think that is to amplify the signal over a long distance, not to control the volume. Is there no volume control for the soundbar?

    Samsung TV new wont put enough signal out power for sound bar?

    If it's a volume issue with optical out, it's likely a menu setting on the TV or configuration of the soundbar. I'm not familiar with that TV or soundbar model, but I suspect if you have a play around with the volume settings it will be fixable :).

    Linux gaming hasn’t just improved, it’s evolved.

    Looks good @Abarbarian - glad to see that Lutris is useful! The look reminds me of the "classic" Steam design from many years ago.
