    I got one on Amazon two years ago. I hear that the ASUS ones are pretty good and so are Motorola Surfboard ones.
    Gonna be cheap and get ones in the same style that the cable operators give you...the older ones from Motorola. I'll ask Comcast if I can get a prepaid label to return both the router and cable box in as I'm not off on a Monday again until the final one in the month to drop it off in person.

    It's running fine again...and the DLNA works well enough out of the box for me - no sound though. I'll make do with this for now.

    I never wanted a cast stick as I've often been disappointed with DLNA technology so far. Though I don't mind the idea of having the capability.

    I would like to get a stick computer but the current crop that is out is disappointing as well. So I keep waiting...

    I've looked into all the devices mentioned on here. None seem to do everything I want which is why I'm after the stick computer instead.

    More like the need to wake up too early.

    Not that I have much choice at the moment. The sun is out by 5am...

    Between my Raspberry Pi, Chromecast and Roku, and the cable box, I'm covered quite well.

    I've been woken up really early the past few days by a mourning dove. Those birds should be called "morning and all day doves". The bird starts cooing before sunrise and doesn't stop!

    The other day we had two crows, a squirrel and some other birds going off at 4:30am... Lots of noise...

    Don't get me started on the doves...

    The birds were really bad back in April and May.

    I've had the doves every spring and summer since I've lived here.

    My Surface Pro, Honor 6, and 636 all work well with the Measy A2W.



    Perhaps a computer on a stick like that of Intel will be better for you.

    Morning folks.

    So up next on the departure tour from my team is my work wife of 8 years. Her last day is Friday. We'll probably have a good cry in her office or mine, as I have no intention of crying at her karaoke thing after work.

    I'm sad to see her go, but she's much happier that she is leaving and giving up the grind of our work site. Yes, people are leaving in two week intervals as my other coworker is scheduled to depart on the last Thursday of the month.

    Just a general comment on MS advertising.

    I see the Surface 3 TV advert all the time, the one with the person tapping. I find it completely irritating and annoying. I can't help but ask myself who does that when using a tablet? The tapping makes it seem like they're waiting which isn't a good indication of speed either.

    To put it bluntly. It's not a cool commercial at all and doesn't do much for the product. Other than the fact that it's being played all the time is the only reason why it I notice it. I mute the TV when it comes on.

    Who comes up with these ideas???

    Yes, it sucks...but life goes on. My supervisor is still an ***** but she has her mandates from senior management, so there's nothing called "help" coming from her. Sometimes one has to cut the cord and do something different.

    I don't mind it as much...I remember the original Surface ads and it seems to be an attempt at a fun continuation of those.

    Still, I'd rather see how a product works rather than gimmicks. The only thing gimmicky about the Samsung ads is that dumb music...but they showcase how their stuff works in order to entice you to buy one.
