Sounds like one of those, "If you dont understand it, Your too OLD!"... Demoniod is fine, use a mix of Mininova, The Pirate Bay, and IsoHunt will find alot more and sometimes better downloads... or at least more peers for download.

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

How are you guys getting past speed limitations? Are you just port forwarding so your ISP can't castrate your speeds?

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

Partly. You port forward to get through your router. I use numbers around 25000, and only open two ports right next to each other. But thats cause my router will block my program if I dont forward...

Then, you find out what your max download and upload speeds are. Do this from places like http://www.speedtest.net, http://speakeasy.net/speedtest/, http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest. Normally I run about three tests at each one. One test doesnt tell you correctly, as most services will fluctuate depending on how much your using the net, how much someone in your house is using the net, and how much net traffic there is. Doesn't hurt to run this test also... http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transpa...ttest-mlab.php It will tell you if your ISP is trying to muck with your downloader. If your using Comcrap...sorry, Comcast, dont use torrents unless your on a business account. They kick you with little to no warning if you go over 1 or 3 gig a month. I have read of one person getting kicked for streaming Heroes from the NBC website. I think it was the third ep that got him into trouble...

Setting up the downloader is harder to explain cause I dont know which program you use and I only use uTorrent http://www.utorrent.com. But with uTorrent, you just have to tell it what port to use and what your upload speed is... Your pretty much ready to go at that point.

And if I ever have children, (and dont kill them), I am sure that they will say the same thing to me one day.

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

Ladies are generally more understanding of children, and I tend not to get along very well with ladies more masculine than I am.

But, yes, Very True.

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

To make things even nicer look into getting a modified xbox1 (not the 360)
Get a huge hardrive and you have a personal entertainment system that does not take up much space...

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

Why so complicated?

I mounted a 22inch LCD HDTV with integral DVD player to a 2-arm wall mount, bolted to the wall. And, the bolts protrude into the pocket area of the pocket door, so I have a bulletproof mount and no visible hardware from the outside!

Re: MOVIES ON THE ROAD

Because you can put about 300-500 dvds on the xbox instead of storage for those same dvds, and then just choose what u want to watch from the remote...and can set up multi hour playlists etc.
