    I'm not quite ready to share the bits with everyone (private beta just started); so a screenshot will have to do.

  • Samsung Focus - Upgrade microSD

    WP7 Public Service Announcement:

    I was concerned by all the microSD noise around upgradeable Windows Phone 7 (WP7) devices that came out after launch so I held off picking up a card hoping for a list of "official" cards.  With that not forthcoming and a shortage of space looming I decided to pick up this WINTEC 16GB microSDHC and see if it would work.  So far so good, been about a week and no issues noted that weren't present with the stock device.


  • Email Issues - Fixed

    Email seems to be broken on the site.  Trying to figure out what the problem is.


    Found the problem.  Emails are being sent again.

  • ResChange -

    ResChange is a simple application to change the resolution/refresh rate output by the GPU.  It can work in command line or system tray mode.  When running in system tray mode it can change the resolution based on hotkey combinations or by monitoring process creation/termination events.

    Command Line Usage: ResChange.exe Width Height Rate Interlaced FixedOutput

    Width: integer - desired display width
    Height: integer - desired display height
    Rate: integer - desired display refresh rate
    Interlaced: true/false
    FixedOutput: number - 0 (Default), 1 (Strech) or 2 (Center)
    e.g. ResChange.exe 1920 1080 23 false 0
    - Initial Release
    - Add support for pixel depth
    - Adding logging
    - Add process watching feature



  • Sandy Bridge: Review & DVRMSToolbox QuickSync Support

    For anyone interested, my review of the Intel Core i5-2500K and BH67BL motherboard went up on MissingRemote Sunday night.

    It was cool playing with the hardware, but the added transcode support (aka QuickSync) added to the platform was really interesting to me and relevant to my other hobby.

    I mentioned in the review, but forgot to post something here (until now) - the latest Early Access rev of DTB has QuickSync support built in.  I still need to sort some stuff out, but the results have been very promising (i.e. very similar to what I'm seeing with MediaConverter 7).  Hopefully with the review out of the way, I'll have more time to play with this feature and get it all working right.
