It's not always that straightforward. Tuya patched the vulnerability mid last year, and it only works with ESP8266 (and maybe ESP32?)…

libgen isn’t just public domain, it’s mostly pirated content. Project Gutenberg is public domain.

Alex commented on $20 Credit @ Mevo
Thanks! There’s a two week expiry when it’s activated, so I assume the code itself expires on 13 February.

This camera also works with the ONVIF Scrypted plugin, so you could set it up to stream to HomeKit Secure Video if you had a…

The code got noticeably worse about a month ago. I find myself using SCQ222 more than anything else, especially on name-brand items.

I helped a friend with an identical install. We ended up finding a small switch that provided 802.3at, and we used an EdgeRouter X. The two…

This is a little harder to answer. WiFi is the most confusing protocol, as some devices will only authenticate through the cloud, while…

The “easiest” option is to buy a HomeKit compatible plug, but I wouldn’t recommend it because (a) the plug you’re looking at…

This is basically the only answer. The only thing to note, and I’m not sure whether it applies to your device, is that some manufacturers…

As an aside, unless you’re specifically after the better camera, you’re desperate for the ProMotion display, or your current phone…

It works perfectly for that! The latest update lets you easily switch between multiple Google accounts, so you can download and…

I set mine up at home, then take it with me travelling. I bought the OEM ethernet power brick, and it works in almost every hotel room. You…

$4.14/L when you buy six at Moore Wilson’s, though Wellington only. Barista is also $4.25/L, which I much prefer in coffee. Online price…

Then we’re comparing apples and oranges. I’m sure you could find a receiver with eARC + speakers for the right price, but there are…

Mirroring BabySeaClown’s comment - I’m also surprised how sexist that linked post is. Even in your linked thread, though, some…

There are lots of reasons to get a soundbar over an AV receiver. Personally, I have a receiver-driven 7.1.2 setup in the living room, and a…

I use a 65” C1 in the living room and a 55” JZ1000 in the bedroom. The JZ1000 has the “Master HDR” panel, as opposed to the…

Alex replied to [Deactivated] on Recommendation for a Dolby Atmos Setup
I agree a decent setup with a dedicated amp can give you better sound, though it’s not always the most practical. It’s not always…

My bad - it’s $1,649 at JB. Still, you can get a Q900a for <$1,000 + SWA-9500S if you want rears later for $375ish. 9.1.4 vs 11.1.4, but…

I just bought the Q900a for $944. Is the Q950a worth an extra $1,100?

The Apple TV isn’t Apple-specific. I have both, and they’d both be perfectly fine replacements. The Apple TV is more expensive, but…

I doubt there would be issues with weatherproofing, and the parts are all relatively generic. My main issue is the hub drive, but the specs…
