re: Why does our wifi suck? - humblepie
Wifi can be a finicky beast. I had similar issues as you and my previous router was a netgear R8000 and still had issues. Tried Plume and have been extremely happy. I have plugged them a bunch on this board but that is because I have been happy with it. If you look at some reviews it won't have the ...

re: Mesh Router question - humblepie
I like our Plume wifi system. It fixed our wifi dead spots. I had a Netgear R8000 previously. I point everyone to the same reviews to help with the decision. [link=(https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/12/review-comparing-google-wifi-to-other-mesh-networking-heavyweights/)]LINK[/link] [link=(h...

re: HDCP 2.2 compliant equipment - Roku Ultra question - humblepie
This is the kind of thing that drives people to pirate their content. Spend tons of money on equipment only to have it made useless by "copy protection". I have a Sony AVR that was advertised as 4k capable but that was before hdcp 2.2. Someday I will upgrade it but not yet. Until then by Roku u...

re: Amazon Echo vs Google Home - Which is best? - humblepie
[quote]That's just not a world we want to live in. [/quote] I mostly agree with you but what if that level of "magic" was available but only within the Amazon ecosystem? Perhaps if you plug in the echo, it looks for a firetv or tablet, etc. If it finds one then it knows it can play what you reque...

re: Roku vs Apple TV vs Firestick etc.. - humblepie
I have fire stick, firetv and Roku ultra. Overall I like the Roku the best BUT the psvue interface is better on the firetv. I find the firetv UI to be annoying and fire stick is slow at times....

[quote]You will just find the ones you need/like and get used to them, then the voice commands become natural.[/quote] I agree, the Harmony skill was like that for me. I can say " Echo, tell Harmony turn on Roku" or " Echo, tell Harmony got to Netflix" and it works great. ...

[quote]I don't see Google bothering to try to do a Google home lite like the dot.

re: Amazon Echo vs Google Home - Which is best? - humblepie
[quote]AinSOUTHAL Keep in mind Google has a history of introducing products and not following through on them. Most of there stuff stays in beta forever and it is either abandoned or never updated.  Amazing is the leader in this segment and I don't see them giving that up. AWS is perhaps the maj...

re: Smart home security system options - humblepie
I had a Honeywell Lynx touch in my previous house which was great. I miss it a bit. Did monitoring through Acadian security which was $25/mo for cellular monitoring. Edit: I forgot to mention the lynx touch has modules so you could buy only the wifi or cellular and upgrade later to add redundancy...
