Re: [Help] Formatting my 500GB HDD

You need to update your bios to get lba48 support.

if it says xecuter on boot likely it is an old version and you could update to evox m8+ or indbios

Re: Kodi (XBMC) Released For Xbox One

I believe there is no bit streaming and no samba and no tv tuner support those are the main issues, other than that it seems to work well for me.

Re: meltdown and spectre bug

problem is the patch will slow down branch prediction by aprox 15-20 % from my rough tests, it is really quite damaging in honesty. it seems that amd does not have all of the bugs identified but some os's are applying all patches penalising their performance. we may see it time microcode updates dri...

meltdown and spectre bug

Has any one herd about the meltdown and spectre exploits that have popped up recently ? looks like it is quite serious bug that effects generations of intel, arm and possibly amd processors enabling access to other apps memory pools. This basically means an app could look at all other apps memory in...

Re: Kodi (XBMC) Released For Xbox One

The thing is Microsoft bent over backwards to get kodi onto the app store, they approached the team and helped convert it to a uwp application for cross platform support. You cant deny the user base of xbmc/kodi and it really promoted sales of andriod tv boxes even though it may be related to piracy...

I didn't have very high hopes, but to my surprise — it works! No more annoying noise, problem fixed. :mrgreen: For a...
