But the bluetooth loss of connection and sound quality had be plug in the short reliable cable. It appears you are covering the same ground I did a few years back.

I went through too many and all suffered this or that issues. The usual issue was lip sync issues. Since I found that unacceptable and some BEEPED on the bluetooth connection, they all went to wired connections and a few were gifted to others.

For me, this tech isn't thought through. Why did they BEEP loudly on connect? Bizarre design choices.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
