  1. That shouldn't be a problem. Distances under 25m really don't matter over cat5 cables (which I am going to assume is what you are using). That's right, UTP running at 100Mb full duplex is perfectly fine for streaming video, but for those of you who are using wireless and are thinking of moving over to a cabled solution, here's some very important advice. NEVER buy your cable from a high street retailer such as Currys, they will charge you an arm and a leg for a UTP network cable. Take a look on eBay and you should be able to pick up a 20M cable for about £5 including postage. Do a search on eBay for "20M UTP Cable". The last time I was in Currys they were selling a 3M UTP cable for £15, I almost died laughing. But that's not the worst, they had a standard 3M PC Mains cable, and they were selling that for £19.99! I wouldn't pay more than £3 for one one of them. Another bit of advice, if you need to split your UTP cables to connect more computers, never buy a hub, buy a switch instead. Here's the differences between the two: HUB: A hub simply broadcasts all data it receives on any port to all other ports. It doesn't care where the data goes and isn't bothered about broadcasting data on a port that has incoming traffic. To do this a hub runs at half duplex which means it can only transmit data in one direction at a time. A hub saturates all your network with all data being sent from any machine connected to it and is prone to packet collision and errors. Just for info: A packet is what we call a chunk of network data. SWITCH: A switch has some intelligence built in, it will determine what machines are connected to what port and redirect the data to that port, therefore it will only send the data to where it needs to go. Switches run at full duplex and generally have much more efficient error correction. Also switches can mix network media, so if your systems are running at different speeds it will be happy at talking to them all. So to sum up, Hubs are slow, more prone to packet collisions/errors and they saturate your network with unnecessary data slowing everything down even more. Switches are fast, they manage the network traffic efficiently and are much more robust when it comes to error correction and different equipment speeds and duplexes. The only downside to switches is that they are more expensive than hubs, but well worth the extra pennies. im connected through wi-fi
  2. I use my ps3 as well. although I use an external hdd to transfer films, as streaming is a bit risky as my ps and laptop are normally at different sides of the house
  3. Think it's pretty pointless.Nothing ground breaking. Maybe V2, or knowing Apple, V15.
  4. I honestly have no idea! maybe the ps3 has its own way around this. but that also leads me to my next problem Will my Modern Warfare 2 online statistics be saved with my psn log-in, or will i have to back it up?
  5. okay, so I have the 160gb slimline, and im looking into upgrading the hdd. i just wanna know, what hdd does it use? 2.5" SATA?
  6. Thats covered in my post in powerline adapters Ah okay. I really don't see how they work though
  7. Isn't it also possible to send data through the mains power?
  8. DJ Format. Just get your hands on a few Fabriclives and your mixture is there
  9. Fall out boy - beat it and this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBcvqcZeov0
  10. www.911tabs.com for starts. As for the package, its good for starters, but if you wanna take bass seriously, then you will have to upgrade. Not sure about prices in dollars, but i'd go for:: http://www.guitar.co.uk/ibanez/1380-ibanez_gsr200_bass_guitar and http://www.guitar.co.uk/amplifiers/bass/526-orange_crush_35b_bass_guitar_amplifier Solid bass, fun to slap But yeah, go for that package, and take it from there! Enjoy
  11. try something new. gui boratto - mr decay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8q64N2OdWc
  12. Hm, I've got a Black Sabbath Vinyl. thats about it. oh yeah, and hendrix's guitar :^o
