WillRulz04/12/14 01:02 PM
x*You may want to try disabling all power management software, both in the BIOS (hopefully someone with you can help there) and in your operating system
DodgyStyle04/12/14 12:37 PM
x*is the screen going black regardless if there is activity or not? have you tried hitting escape or ctrl/alt/delete to wake it up? NT
Belle04/12/14 12:24 PM
x*That would be great dogy if someone can help or try to guide me on how to do that. Belle, yes, i have tried both things you suggested and the feeds
marybeth04/12/14 12:46 PM

HollyB2324 3   03/29/14 10:27 PM
x*The popup viewer has been removed and won't be returning. The open access to the streams were blocked, so they no longer work. NT
M3gabyt303/30/14 12:58 AM
x*Thanks. I was hoping that was not the reason why it was gone. Good job while it lasted! Thanks for your hard work. NT
HollyB03/30/14 02:52 AM

M3gabyt303/28/14 08:49 PM
x*Just keep p**sing off your fans BBCanada. That's a solid business strategy... NT
hishighness03/29/14 06:44 AM

x*For a quick fix...
M3gabyt303/24/14 11:17 AM
x*Original links are back after feed cycled as expected. quickfix won't work now, revert to old script from before now. NT
M3gabyt303/24/14 07:43 PM

JCash203/24/14 12:03 PM
x*Got some useful stats with this. Audio on mid is 44.1hz 130 - HQ 48hz 315. That helps, thanks again. NT
xx2000xx03/22/14 11:21 AM
x*Thanks for this. With MadVR and it tweaked it's fantastic. If it had a flashback it would be my go to and my capping experience would be perfect. NT

JCash203/22/14 05:33 PM

x*Glad you find it useful, and request noted, will see if I can come up with something. :) NT
JCash203/22/14 05:32 PM
x*Works great here. It's a relief to have four tiny low res windows (sipping bits instead of guzzling) in the corner of my display. NT
HarriatLariat03/22/14 09:21 AM
*To whom it may concern: The thumbnail history and flashback page is a godsend. Great job. NT
HarriatLariat1514 4   03/21/14 06:38 PM
x*I don't have it linked in the headers yet, because there's some problems still...and it needs some styling. NT
M3gabyt303/21/14 06:51 PM
x*I figured as much. The thumbs themselves are useful and I use them often. It was a shock when I thought I was opening a hi-res pic and got video :D NT
HarriatLariat03/21/14 06:59 PM
x*I'm hoping to eventually make the thumbnails low-res so they load faster...right now I'm using what the live stream host provides so they load slow NT
M3gabyt303/21/14 06:50 PM
x*I guess the flashbacks may have been working for a couple of days, but I never noticed it and didn't get the memo. NT

AceRimmer2337 7   03/17/14 04:45 PM
x*quality/speed options will be added soon (tonight maybe), and we can see if that helps. NT

x*you can still use the (ad-free!) pop-up viewer up top NT
HES03/17/14 04:47 PM
x*No, I don't have any lag, but if I open more then one feed, I can't seem to mute them, just turn the sound down NT
decafjnr03/17/14 04:46 PM
x*I was talking about the one at the top, when I said about not being able to mute it NT
decafjnr03/17/14 04:54 PM
x*hmmm for me if pop the cams out i click the headphone that is on the turn down side it bassically mutes it i cant hear anything from that cam NT
steve201303/17/14 04:59 PM
x*Maybe I didn't click it right, I was listening to the HOH people and could still hear the other cam NT

Dimples870 2   03/13/14 07:55 PM
x*Get the Ghostery add-on. Same as adblock plus as they block the most but it's better. Add both if you want with the fanboy/easylist. NT
xx2000xx03/13/14 09:11 PM
x*thank you! NT
