re: Wifi range options - CubsFanBudMan
What are the specs for your new house (area and layout)? Probably best to get a good recommendation for that house and it should work out where you are now. This is for people more in the know than me. When is the next wifi standard expected to be released? Would it be best for the OP to spend a...

re: Are WiFi routers universal these days? - CubsFanBudMan
[quote] Yes, and I can't remember a time when they weren't.[/quote] There was the whole A and B issue back in the day. Now everything is backwards compatible. The only issue now is 2.4ghz vs 5ghz. But there isn't a brand specific wifi router that only works with that same brand card....

re: Is TickBoxTV worth it? - CubsFanBudMan
That looks just like my MXQ Pro box that I paid less than $40 for. It had the same remote, but not the keyboard, which is another $10-15. Email them and ask them what chip is in it, then search that chip on Amazon. Mine is S905. They now have an S905X chip....
