Last Drive Upgrade?

Saturday night (into early Sunday AM) I upgraded the drive in the 5040 Refurb to 250GB. After all, I'm recording all that HD in Medium...and I'm keeping 4 of each show...that adds up to a lot.

I'm surprised by the number of show requests I get on Poopli for shows I've recording from HD.

When I put the unit back, I put it in at an angle. So that the blue LED would be visible from where I sit....was having trouble telling if it was on or not. So many different reasons why it might not be responding to my remote, etc. Or not getting the expected video output. Need the visual indication to narrow reasons down.

While I was at it, moved the light to the otherside of my rack...and set it inline with the screen (or slightly behind it)....keeps the light from this lamp off of the front. Another improvement....

Meanwhile, the new DVD player is on hold....but I'm still planning a UPS shuffle....

Low-Light Digital Camera

Anybody know of a good and inexpensive digital camera that functions under low light. Good for flash-less indoor shots.

Need something good for taking candids at parties that is shirt pocketable and I don't need to worry too much if it takes a swim...I've drowned a couple of film cameras in my time. &#59;D

Also useful to sneaking into concerts.... 88|

ReplayTV Progressive Output

Somebody may have asked....

Is there any point in using the component outputs to my TV from a ReplayTV, even if I only have just basic cable?

Well, take a look at this...and draw your own conclusions.

The Display is a Samsung HLN4365W1, the show was recorded in Standard from analog cable. The Left image is Component and Right image is S-Video from the same ReplayTV.

Drive upgrading.... 2

The end of this story?

Well,


07/26/04 Maxtor Maxline Plus II 7Y250P0 250GB PATA133 7200RPM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer *** Free 2nd Day ***

what the description doesn't say is it's qty. 2

The drives arrived on July 29th (Thursday)....and I had intended to upgrade one per night....and possibly delay until Friday night to start. But I ended up doing both that night.

Haven't decided the fate of the 5508 that I don't own, but I share my apartment with :DD

Leaning towards letting the 160 from my 5160 materialize in it.....but since it is old and I've done 3 or 4 factory resets...and it has had other problems...I'm thinking I want to do a lowlevel format first....except the dos software to do this can't see the firewire adapters on my SFF-PC. I'm hoping the PCMCIA IDE adapter I've recently ordered will.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
