I'm glad that Jeff feels that the bug won't effect SageTV users.

That being said, this is yet another reason to use VPNs to connect remotely to your home network instead of port forwarding. Not...

I will say that it is very difficult to pay attention more than two TVs at the same time. Even 3 TVs is too much. I've moved the extra TVs out for other sporting events (like the Olympics) and...

I honestly don't recall that "warning", but it very well may be because I simply ignored it and went on about my business. I routinely root my Android phones, etc where these types of warnings are...

I would simply add that you might want to get one that offers ATSC 3.0 support. This is a new broadcast method that supports 4k and it's the wave of the future. It's not currently available in most...

I would start by letting the machine run full time without hibernating - at least leading up to the next game. I can easily see a scenario where a Windows update changed the hibernation mechanics...

We didn't have cable TV for the first 5-10 years of marriage. But we eventually got it and have kept it - largely because I use SageTV and a cable card tuner. This allows me to easily record and...

You probably have a good idea there. While I haven't had an issue with Bitwarden, it does make sense to plan for the "worse case" scenario.

Bitwarden has a built in "export" option (found under...

I suspect this has more to do with the announced Windows 11 requirement of TPM 2.0 support (Trusted Platform Module) than anything else.

TPMs support is a fairly new thing, so many of the older...
