5 out of 5 eggs Direct TV Remote Codes 02/05/2011

This review is from: Sceptre 37" 720p LCD HDTV X370BV-HD

Pros: For the Direct TV codes use "Sony". This is for the HD boxes made in the last 2 years.

Slide button over to "TV"
Hit Mute & SELECT light blinks twice
Enter 10000
Press volume up or down. Should change.

While slide is on "TV" the functional keys are:
Volume (moves < > )
Channel (moves menu items up or down)

For TV Input (choice HDMI, TV, YPb etc.)
Repeat for TV code (slide to TV)
Mute & Select Blink twice
Enter 960
Hit Done on screen with Select button each time

Cons: Took me a year to figure this stuff out (I'm also lazy).

Other Thoughts: Really Nice TV, np

1 out of 5 eggs Another Egg-beater 01/06/2011

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 640GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive E05A064CAU2CK Black

Pros: shipped from NJ to PA

Cons: I fell for yet ANOTHER sale from the egg. When it comes to having your data for a long time, NEVER buy a HDD from the egg unless it is a retail version. Totally sick of their sales.

I would spend extra money for a good HDD. Toshiba? I can't even begin to tell you how bad that is.

Other Thoughts: Quick format.

JetWay JHA07-ULTRA-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Spend a Lil' More 03/12/2010

This review is from: JetWay JHA07-ULTRA-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Affordability, OC options in the BIOS

Cons: Too many. I bought the HA06-GT. Thought I'd give it a ride. Had a an AMD 7750. Upgraded to a Propus. No problem, it booted, but again, "unknown processor" in Windows and CPU-Z. That was with the latest BIOS update.

Now I don't know about you, but their support site said I installed BIOS wrong. The minute I entered and typed all the command line parameters ( p/n/del/a blah blah blah) verbatim FROM A FLOPPY, the BIOS got scrambled.

Do you think they would have a bootable ISO to CD??
Do you think they support CPU's made months ago?
Do you think they would have clear instructions?

Filled out some Excel type spreadsheet for the RMA. I have to ship it to them, pay $10 (for what?) and return shipping. I will have spent almost half what I paid.

If you like command line parameters from floppy's, filling out spreadsheets, AND having to pay for your RMA, then

just then, maybe a Jetway is right for you.

Other Thoughts: Gonna stick with the name brands from now on. Sorry Jetway, lump ECS in there too.

The whole AMD value thing is lost when mobo mfg's all thumb their noses at new processor support.

From now on, I am going to look at who updates their BIOS the most, and easiest.
