Hello all,

My mother in law wants to watch a particular web based TV station but it doesn't work very well over their rather inept Samsung Smart TV. I think the TV's computer is simply not powerful enough to decode and play the H.264 stream (it constantly shows a refresh icon in the center of the video); it plays perfectly on a computer or iPhone.

The other problem with the Samsung Smart TV is that it is very "complicated" to wait about 2 minutes, press "smart hub", use the navigation buttons to find the Internet browser, then move the cursor to the bookmarked URL (that I set up), then finally navigate the web sight to start the TV streaming.

What I am looking for is a TV Box that I can pre-configure to minimize the effort required for my mother in law to watch her TV streaming.

Important features:
  • Minimalistic controller.
  • Decent built-in web browser with capable web video decoding.
  • Built-in WiFi.
  • USB memory stick interface.

One candidate is the Minix Neo U1 + A2 Lite Air Mouse.

Any other suggestions?

Thank you

I was wondering if someone here knows if it's possible to play the contents of a directory on a USB on a Sony Bravia TV. So far I've only been able to play one video file at a time.

I've searched around and the best I could find was someone recommending an external video player but I was wondering if the functionality was available in the TV itself.

If it is possible, my next question would be if you can also play all files in a loop.

Thanks in advance.

I do have the cables connected to the amp correctly.  Does a video cable have to be connected to the tv for it to work?

For some reason (don't ask) many years ago I created an iTunes accounts through my work email and another through my home email.  My job is at risk, and so I would like to take my 'work' apple id and transfer it into my 'home' id.

My issue is NOT accessing music from both accounts on one device:  everything is authorized properly.  My issue is that I'm going from TWO emails to ONE.  If, in the future, I need to 'login' or 'authorize' the work email apple-id and forget the password, I won't be able to reset it as I won't have access to the 'work' email.

I tried the easy route:  changing the 'work' email to the 'home' email.  Apple wasn't having it:  "there is already a user account with...."

I've been considering getting solar for my 2000 sq.ft. home.  I spend between $100-$150 a month on electricity...I have a pool.  I've talked to a couple companies who of course state that its a no brainer, but I wanted to hear your thoughts and possible experience on the subject.  Lastly, since my roof is not considered Solar approved as far as attaching the panels and such, I would need to get a new roof, at least on the portion where the panels would need to be installed.

What company would be recommended first hand, if any?
