Hi,

We have a Sky Q (2TB) box connected via HDMI cable to our Denon AVR X4300.

Our Denon AVR X4300 is connected via a HDMI cable to HDMI 1 port (HDMI 2.0) of our Iiyama PROLITE TE8668MIS-B1AG display.

We were setting up the 4K/ UHD channels on the Sky Q box and wished to set the colour resolution to 10-bit 2160p for TV shows and movies.

Setting Sky to 10-bit 2160p did not work and we had to use 8-bit colour resolution as an error message from Sky said that the colour settings were not set with the display for 10-bit colour resolution.

Iiyama told me that there was no settings to be configured for the display and that the display is set to 10-bit colour resolution and 4K and that a direct connection from Iiyama display to Sky box would work.

What would be the best way of testing the connection between the Sky Q (2TB) box, Denon AVR and Iiyama display to find out what is causing the problem.

Thanks,
Robbie

I'm comparing a Gigabyte to an Asus motherboard. Based on the Amazon reviews, it sounds like the Asus is the better board. Do you agree?

Gigabyte:

Asus:

Here are some excerpts from the negative Gigabyte reviews:

Junk.. Never used a Gigabyte board before, normally buy Asus. Should have done it this time. Nightmare.. Nothing but problems with windows and my Ryzen, some expected, but the bios has been a pain in the ... flashed it cause of problems and when it rebooted.. nothing.. bios 1 shows memory error. Bios 2 shows video card error. just a nightmare all around. I just passed my return period 2 weeks ago. :(
------------------
basically:
audio quality: 1/10
ram compatibility: 1/10
gigabyte's reliability: 1/10
software support: 1/10
looks: 9/10
build quality: i guess its fine overall but my audio problem might be hardware based so 5/10
-----------------------
There are a lot of reasons why I’m returning this board. First and most critical is that there is no real support for it from Gigabyte! This board is stuck in BIOS F-2 which …

I am planning to build a computer soon. The requirements are to run older apps, such as Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008, Adobe InDesign CS6, the current version of VM Workstation, Windows 10 and Access 2010. I expect to run Windows 7 and the numerous older apps in a VM. I am considering the following:
AMD A6-7400K Dual-Core 3.5

Do you have any recommendations for a motherboard? Are the more expensive motherboards faster than the lower-priced motherboards?

Windows 10 machine that is no longer recognizing anything plug into USB.  It just shows them as other devices in device manager.  This all started from unplugging a USB printer, after that, everything went to that mode.  We tried plugging the printer back in, change what ports stuff is plugged into.  Not even the keyboard and mouse will work.  I tried reinstalling the Intel IME and I'm getting an error

Hello!

Is a voltage regulator/line conditioner necessary for items such as printer, scanner, modem, router, AV receiver (I do believe the voltage in my location is not steady)?

Do most high end battery backup/surge (for workstations) automatically also regulate voltage?  

What brands are recommended (best for cost) for voltage regulators/line conditioners AND battery backup/surge  and why?

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

We are a VOIP startup based in Singapore and need some advisory in this front. We plan to offer services to two different segments ;

1.      Residential voip – essentially to people who want to call out locally and to foreign destinations. Primary objective is to provide international calling capability to foreigners residing in Singapore at low rates (usually 1 cent per minute for calls to popular destinations) in contrast to high rates charged by local telcos.

2.      Business VOIP / PBX / SIP : essentially to a business (which in itself can be group of employees). Each employee can login using a softphone like Zoiper / bria etc. Then there can be call groups, IVR etc.

We are currently battling with software components and best options. Have had calls with few providers but the solutions they provide seems bit rudimentary. For example for some of them billing solution is not adequate. Free minutes can not be accounted adequately.

So can experts recommend a software solution which is reasonably advanced and can take care of upto 1000 clients. I guess we need here a class 5 softswitch + a hosted multitenant solution with webportal for tenants.

The key we are looking for is a sophistication which can help us to scale.

PS
==
We are ok with quality paid services from hosted switch PBX providers, and dont mind having 1: 1 call with experts to discuss further.

Greetings, Exchange Experts...

On Saturday, my Exchange server stopped receiving emails from external sources.  However, mail flow was normal for internal emails and we could send to external parties.  Upon researching the Exchange queues and the Event Viewer of the server, I found a couple things.  For one, I had a ton of emails stuck the queue, including 2 that were over 1.7GB each.  Many of the queued items were OOO replies, but not all.  In the Event Viewer, I found 4 15004 errors and a couple 1009 errors.  The confusing thing was that these errors were from the previous day.  

Here is an example:

The resource pressure increased from Medium to High.

The following resources are under pressure:
Version buckets = 208 [High] [Normal=80 Medium=120 High=200]

The following components are disabled due to back pressure:
Inbound mail submission from Hub Transport servers
Inbound mail submission from the Internet
Mail submission from Pickup directory
Mail submission from Replay directory
Mail submission from Mailbox server
Mail delivery to remote domains
Content aggregation

The following resources are in normal state:
Queue database path ("C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\data\Queue\mail.que") = 60% [Normal] [Normal=95% Medium=97% High=99%]
Queue database logging path ("C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\data\Queue\") = 71% [Normal] [Normal=95% Medium=97% High=99%]
Private bytes = 6% [Normal] …

Hello!

It seems I possibly have a driver issue after cloning my HD to a new SSD drive.  

I cannot hear audio using the on-board audio hardware however can hear audio when my USB headphones are used.  Audio using the on-board hardware worked fine before the cloning.  

Please see attached device manager summary.  

I would appreciate any input to enable hearing audio via the on-board audio hardware.  

Please advise if any other questions.

Please advise on steps to resolve.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

I'm looking for a wireless mouse (that connects with a USB transceiver or with Bluetooth) that I can connect to two different Windows 10 computers and that will allow me to move the mouse pointer between and use the mouse on the two computers.

What kinds of wireless mice are available that will allow me to do this?
