    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I've used Channels DVR since January, still run NextPVR too. The apps and browser interfaces are clunky when changing channels, because they go back a page (which stops the video). I would strongly suggest using Kodi as a frontend. With Kodi, I just checked and see about a second and a half, to...

    2023 NCAA Womens basketball tournament

    Here in Fort Myers, proud of our FGCU Lady Eagles. (#12 took down #5 Wash St). Tough draw with Villanova on their home court on Monday, tho.

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    Wouldn't that have been inappropriate without his agent present?

    AUDIO - Ned Martin and Curt Gowdy call the 12th inning of Game 6 in 1975

    Thanks for that. I'm still listening to the postgame. The next game was not the best for my namesake. He had given me tickets for game 7, and Carbo's homer, then Fisk's, had my 15 year old self jumping for joy.

    Who is the first Red Sox First Baseman you can remember?

    Sure.....I've been able to rattle off the '67 and '75 lineups for years, but I'm hard-pressed to remember the championship ones. I was 7 and 15 at the time. So another vote for Boomer 1.0 here.

    Wifi Connection Issue

    Ten bucks should fix this issue, and you'll have more up-to-date wifi on your laptop. This is just the first dongle I ran into in a search, there are many, almost dirt cheap.   edit:   PS... Always a good idea to...

    Standalone Sunday Ticket?

       I've been using NFL Gamepass for a few years now, with no problems. It's much better for cord-cutters, because it carries EVERY game. With Thur/Mon nights mostly only on cable, DirecTV doesn't help there. It also comes with 24/7 NFL Network, and RedZone.      You have to jump through some...

    Standalone Sunday Ticket?

    I did that last year too, CP XL, but after some poking around today have pretty much confirmed that GamePass will not be free anywhere this year. I checked both Holland and New Zealand, both ask you to pay $270 for the full package.   I've read many instances where people have paid, using their...

    Need help fixing Father's computer

    The computer boots up before the problems start, so I'd try booting into a live Ubuntu session (from CD/DVD or USB), then use the file manager to copy important files to a USB stick, if you can see them. After that....those restore disks would be handy.

    Problems booting an old desktop

    You could also try booting the machine from a linux distro on CD (live boot), and then try to access the drive.

    NFL Sunday Ticket now available via PS3

    mikeford....I had problems today too, first time I tried to connect just prior to 1PM on a Sunday.   I think that free VPN site gets slammed at that time. Going forward, I'd suggest starting the stream an hour or two before kickoff.

    NFL Sunday Ticket now available via PS3

       For those interested in NFL Gamepass, I tried this (free) method of accessing it today. Worked like a charm. (First post of that page.)      I rarely boot into Windows on my dual-boot machine, so I've got a pretty clean Windows 7 install to boot into. YMMV.      Streamed quality wasn't so...

    NFL Sunday Ticket now available via PS3

         I'm having that problem now, yes. Can see RedZone channel fine, but only get team logos for games themselves.      I got a pop-up message late in the early games about a firewall issue. I closed it without really reading it. I re-booted and re-signed in, still no games or pop-up, RZ fine.  ...
