    USB DVB-T tuner dongle issue

    I've tried "universal" scanning and still get TVS Now only works if antenna is connected externally Current signal on the main tv is 77% If I plug back the supplied version - I get nothing at all.
  2. Hi, I just purchased and received my new USB DVB-T Dongle for my Windows 8 machine. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/130938012332?ss...984.m1439.l2649 I've installed all the drivers and Blazevideo DTV software and operates fine. For some reason using the provided antenna (and tried connecting to external and reinstalled on Windows 7 laptop), I can only get TVS in Sydney and nothing else. The tuner is set at Realtek RTL2832U mode for DVB-T reception under Australia region http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/product...&ProdID=257 I also have DAB and ISDB options but I know they are not for Australia. There is an advance setting box where I can update Constellation Code Rate Transmission Mode Guard Interval Off centre freqency Do I need to change anything to get all the digital channels ? Is there something else I'm missing ? I would think if an external HD antenna is connected all channels would be tuned it. All channels are available on my main digital TV Thanks ED

    16:10 resolutions work on a 16:9

    Sweet thanks Therefore if I purchased a 1980 x 1680 16:9 monitor and the maximum resolution on the DVI and HDMI is 1920 x 1200, I would need to set the resolution on the video card below 1920 x 1200 to fit into a 16:9 Eg: In this case 1600 x 900 assuming the inbuilt card can do this Cheers
  5. Hi, My Asus mother board has inbuilt video at a maximum 16:10 aspect ratios for DP, DVI and HDMI mode (RBG at 4:3 / 16:9) and I'll be setting it up with dual screen operation. If I purchased a 16:9 monitor (seems like it cheaper than 16:10), can I operate on a 16:10 ratio ? I assume "yes" you can but you will get black strip on the top and bottom of screen. Eg: 1920 x 1200 resolution on a 16:9 monitor Thanks
  6. Hi All, I'm starting to search for a new lap top for my work. Mainly use it for Architectural and general works. Mainly use 2D AutoCAD, sketchup and little bit of 3Dmax + VRay and would like an option to attached 1 or more screens. For some reason if I purchased a laptop with Nivida mobile Quadro card (which AutoDesk recommend), the laptop itself is quite heavy and expensive. Eg: http://www.dell.com/au/business/p/precision-laptops If I wanted to go down the mobile GEFORCE path (since majority of lap tops are lighter, newer and cheaper) Which mobile GEFORCE card would suit the style of my work. Or GEFORCE is really meant for gaming purposes ? Cheers ED
  7. Hey Guys, Couple of days back I drowned my BB 9780 without noticing until I got home. I removed the battery, sim card, sd card etc and placed it in a bowl of rice for a couple of days. Turned it back on and the reception was on/off and my track/scroller not working. Did some research, took it apart and cleaned it with deionised water (not distilled) and Isopropyl alcohol (http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=NA1062&keywords=Isopropyl+alcohol&form=KEYWORD) Let it dry, put it back together. BUT not it doesn't even turn on. Have I missed something, apart from connecting back the right way ? Should I have used distilled water ? Should I have dunked the parts in distilled water and alcohol instead of locally cleaning with a ear bud ? I've dismantled everything and placed it back in the rice today. Any help would be great - don't wanna lose my phone.
