  • Kodi boxes 'threaten to undermine' the UK's anti-piracy efforts:

    Kodi boxes 'threaten to undermine' the UK's anti-piracy efforts:

    Media centre software Kodi is once again taking flak for its role in facilitating digital piracy today. An announcement from the UK's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has praised "innovative" services like Netflix and Spotify for keeping Brits on the straight and narrow, but notes that the scale of online piracy remains "stable" -- which is just a positive way of saying no gains have been made in tackling infringement over the past 12 months, following several years of decline....

  • Enforcement may start targeting individual users of illegal Kodi add-ons ?

    Enforcement may start targeting individual users of illegal Kodi add-ons ?

    A couple of months ago in April, the European Court of Justice ruled that the sale of media boxes that are pre-configured for piracy is illegal. These media boxes typically come pre-loaded with Kodi, a media center application that has plenty of legitimate uses, but can also be used for piracy by installing third-party add-ons.

    Until now, law enforcement has only targeted those that distribute set-top boxes that are pre-loaded with these add-ons, and the developers of the add-ons themselves.

  • InnSpire InnCable is an Android TV Box Embedded into an Ethernet Cable (CNX)

    InnSpire InnCable is an Android TV Box Embedded into an Ethernet Cable (CNX)

    Smaller it gets....

    We’ve got used to super small computer systems from
    TV boxes-in-a-plug to HDMI TV sticks, and tiny development boards such as Raspberry Pi Zero W. But InnSpire pushed the concept further with InnCable as the computer, or in this case the TV box, is placed inside an Ethernet cable, or more exactly a cable with Ethernet on one side (optional with PoE for power), and HDMI port on the other.

  • The End of TVAddons: Kodi devs are dropping like flies

    The End of TVAddons: Kodi devs are dropping like flies

    You can feel the panic in the Kodi community.

    TVAddons suddenly disappeared this week after being sued by Dish Network for copyright infringement. Each infringement carries a possible fine of $150,000 US.

    That can add up VERY quickly.

    Since the “Kodi Crackdown” started, several big-name Kodi devs have thrown in the towel under the legal pressure, but losing TVAddons is by far the biggest blow to the community.



    Why is this a big deal?

  • Micro SD Cards for Development Boards – Classes, Tools, Benchmarks, Reliability, and Tips & Tricks (CNX)

    When people plan to use a development board for their project, they mainly focus on the requirements of the development board itself, as well as software support. But selecting the right accessories may be just as crucial for good performance and stability. For example, selecting a proper power supply is important, as the board may freeze or randmly rebooted if it is not feed at the right voltage. Part of this is selecting a micro USB cable, as you’ll want a cable with minimal resistance which can...

  • How to Use Dolby Atmos Surround Sound on Windows 10

    How to Use Dolby Atmos Surround Sound on Windows 10



    Windows 10's Creators Update added support for Dolby Atmos positional sound. This includes two things: Support for Dolby Atmos hardware and virtual Dolby Atmos sound that works in any pair of headphones.

    The Dolby Atmos for headphones feature is a bit weird. It appears in the standard Windows control panel as an option, but it requires a free trial or $14.99 purchase via the Windows Store before you can actually use it.

  • Now you can run Linux on Windows 10 without developer mode

    Now you can run Linux on Windows 10 without developer mode

    One of the more surprising (and geeky) features Microsoft introduced with the launch of Windows 10 was something called Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Basically, it’s a tool that lets you run a Linux-based operating system such as Ubuntu within Windows. Up until now the only way to do that was to enable Developer Mode from the Windows settings.

    But starting with the new Windows 10 preview build that
    launched this week, you don’t need to toggle Developer Mode to use WSL.
