8/23    What's a good video card/chipset to let me play DVD full screen
        on a tv-out while doing win32 stuff on the monitor?  Nvidia for
        example seems to want to put this ugly black border around the
        tv-out image.
        \_Matrox Radeon All-In-Wonder.
        \_ATI Radeon All-In-Wonder.
        \_ well, if you want to tweak the black border, try tvtool
           (http://www.tvtool.de ... incidentally, if you don't know why
           the black border is there in the first place, it's to try to
           correct for overscan, which varies from television to television.
        \_ hey this program says I have a tv out chip on my card but I only
           have one output.  Is there a cable I can get that lets me connect
           from a standard monitor output to my tv?
           \_ they're called scanline converters, and they're not cheap.

            \_ but supposedly my card has all that already, just not the port
               I need to plug into my tv.  Where is it?
               \_ well, maybe it would help if you mentioned exactly what
                  card you have?  maybe your card is supposed to be used in
                  conjunction with an nVidia Personal Cinema card or something?
                  or maybe the chip is there because it was on a reference
                  board, but to reduce costs it can't actually be used for
                  anything?
                  \_Just buy a DVD player.

3/7     Does anyone else think the iPad3 isn't really that much better
        than the iPad2?  I don't really understand the hype.
        \_ 5MP camera?  My 1-yr-old Android phone has a 8MP auto-focus camera
           (plus a 1MP focus-free one on the front.)
              \_ The iPad camera seems like a joke to me.  The iPad is just
                 to big to be useful for taking pictures.  Maybe it makes

6/8     Bought a new Sony Bravia from Costco. I can connect to it using
        DVI->HDMI converter at up to 1024x768. Above that resolution,
        Sony TV says "Unsupported Signal..." even though the manual
        clearly says it can support 1280x1024, 1900x1080, etc etc.
        What's up with that?
        \_ Your DVI source *MUST BE* HDCP compliant. Old DVI devices are not.

4/10    Why do people (myself included) like watching movies or TV series, or
        reading novels?  Why are humans so fascinated about stories that they
        consciously know are not real?  Do other animals exhibit such behavior?

           \_ That is FUCKING AMAZING
              \_ It is amazing.  I think it's partially trained behavior, but
