These things are all over the Internet and I think getting one might solve an issue I have with Time Warner Cable in the Buffalo NY area.
They moved their channel lineup around and now are telling me I need a DVR on every TV to receive certain channels, such as one of my favorites, TruTV, which now is on channel 70. Each additional DVR is $7.00 per month.
Anyway, the one DVR we have now from Time Warner has an infrared remote. I was thinking of getting something called a "wireless infrared remote extender" that increases the "reach" of my infrared remote to about 100 or 115 feet. I think this is enough to control the DVR in the living room from the kitchen, bedroom and enclosed porch. I will, of course, measure the distances before buying.
Is anyone using one of these things? If so, what do you think and is there a brand you'd recommend?
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?
