re: Best program for ripping dvd's/blurays? - LSUtigerME
I compress my Blurays down to about 4GB. The picture quality is still very good, but I lose the full Bluray HD audio. It's is still DDS, just not the full Bluray HD audio (I don't recall exact format names). Overall I'm pleased, and it's a great balance. To add to the well described lengthy post...

re: Best program for ripping dvd's/blurays? - LSUtigerME
Handbrake works great for the ripping and converting a file. However, as mentioned you may need the file to break the DRM, which isn't a big deal. But, it doesnt work for Bluray Discs. For ripping Bluray, I use MakeMKV. It will rip the disc to an MKV file, then I convert it with Handbrake to com...

re: How to mount TV and hide the wires W/ Pics, Update in OP - LSUtigerME
That area will be hollow. Just drill a hole in each location, and then fish the wires through/down using fish tape or some other rod with a hook. When we built our house, the contractor installed a piece of PVC pipe from behind the TV down to the cabinet to run wires through....

re: What's the most advantageous golf shot to be better at? - LSUtigerME
Short game. Chipping, putting, wedges. Ever play with some old dude who drives it 200 yds, but puts it dead center every shot then 2 putts? Everybody likes to think driver, but bad golfers typically aren't good with it. Put it back in the bag. If you're not hitting GIR, why does it matter if you...

re: Painting calipers on a truck - LSUtigerME
If you don't want to remove them, G-2 makes a very nice caliper painting kit. It comes in s few colors, and uses a brush on system. You just mask off the areas you don't want painted (I use a plastic bag over the rotor so I can roll it through the caliper) and brush in the two-part system. I've ...

re: Best router for large house - LSUtigerME
Another vote for running a hard wired PoE access point. The Ubiquiti is fantastic so far. I used a cheapo TP-Link for a while and it kept freezing up and causing issues. Bought the UniFi one last week and wondered why I didn't buy it first....

re: Painted kitchen cabinets? - LSUtigerME
I can't stand painted cabinets. Something about it cheapens it to me. Might as well buy some pine and paint them. Not saying you can't update the look, but painting over a quality wood cabinet irks me. Like putting linoleum over hard wood floors. The painting/antiquing feels very "fad"-ish to me,...

re: Bulging capacitor replacement... Who would do this? - LSUtigerME
If not wanting to deal with soldering new caps on, could you just replace the board? More expansive, but effectively just removing a few screws and connectors. The board on my Samsung went out after a lightning strike. Besides diagnosing which board had failed, the actual repair looked incredibly...

re: Advice for factory ordering a vehicle- negotiating tips, deposits, etc. - LSUtigerME
People who always buy something off the lot never seem to understand this concept. You know exactly what you want, and surprisingly it's not always available. Whether it's a Honda or a Maserati. Every vehicle I've bought has been very particular. One ordered, one dealer trade, and one tagged duri...

re: Any experience with sleep monitors? - LSUtigerME
What are you looking for? Fitbit has a sleep tracking feature, but I personally didn't care for it too much. I use an App on my iPhone to "track" my sleep but more importantly wake me at the right time. I set a 25m window to be woken, based on the latest acceptable time. It does track your sl...

re: 2 modems, 1 house. - LSUtigerME
I ran a new Cat5 drop to the other side of my house, used a POE injector and bought a cheap POE router. It works great and solves my problems with signal in the back of the house (not that big). It streams through my firestick no problems. I actually got a lot of the info from a thread on here....
