  1. does anyone have the residential 5 mb service?  how are the speeds..are they always close to the max?

    Wow to bad I haven't seen this earlier, but I only upgraded to the 5meg package about 2 months ago due to having line quality problems which have been repaired, but here is a test with the 5 meg package. Like 4.83megs down  :smiley:

  4. Ok if i click on properties of my DSL connection it says under Details, gives me my ip addy,DNS's etc... under compression it says none.... but under my properties for my network card, i have ip header compression turned on and i also have software compression turned on, so can someone explain to me why compression isn't working?

    I'm running on Win XP sp2


  5. About a week ago,i called my ISP and asked to move from my 3 meg package to a 5 meg package... they said that my line couldn't handle 5 megs because of line quality, so they said they can milk it to 4megs.... i said to them why not.... so they changed it, according to speakeasy test I went from a 306Kb/s download to 412Kb/s ... which is great, but only on a speed test do i get those speeds, if i download a program from a website I'm getting less then my original 306Kb/s .... so what I need to know is where there is a good reliable program i can download...a large file... cause I tried downloading Google Earth, cause Google should have a good bandwidth. Anyhow, anyone have any ideas? If I could do a speed test @ testmy.net I would...but my computer is to old for that.

  6. I personally use VLC Media player.... it's great if you have a slower computer, and you don't need to have divX because it comes with the program I believe ,it also plays quicktime files without having to download quicktime. Take snapshots of videos,etc.

  7. Well before i start to offer technical, and more sneaky ways to get passed it let me first ask this. Usually when you purchased movie files or music files protected by DRM the place you got them from allows you  to burn x amount of copies of the material you purchased, but the thing is you usually have to do the buring process through Windows Media player have you tryed to burn them to a disk via WMP yet?

    Well I checked under the Burn tab in WMP 10, and it only says audio  :? ,which to me means audio as in music, maybe I'm wrong... just didn't risk it cause I didn't want to waste a CD.

  8. I've ran into similar issues before, and got around them. It sounds like M$ DRM (Digital Rights Management) to me. Give some more info about the files types you are trying to burn, and i bet i can get you around the flakey DRM.

    I have an account at http://www.danni.com/ and they are (wmv) format, I thought maybe I can convert them to a different format after getting the license and playing it, but no dice there.

  9. Ok here's the deal, I pay for access to a website @ 19.95/month .... now if I download any movies, I have to stay connected to the net and get a license to play it. I know they want to protect there movies, but I should have the right to burn them onto CD if I wish to do so, heck I pay the 19.95/month. And what happens if the site goes down and disappears??? Us buyers are the ones who get screwed. Unless somebody around here knows what I can do so I can actually burn these and not have to get the license online and enjoy the movies for many years to come. Love to hear your input on this and if you found a way around this problem.

  10. I just got a brand new computer and have been trying to switch the hard drives. Ive done it many times, but for some reasn, my new computer wont read any of my HDs. Ive tried SATA and it worked fine. The IDE wont

    detect at all.... Any help?

    Check your Bios settings, like on my old computer... you had a choice to boot from SCSI or IDE,if you had IDE choosen then SCSI wouldn't work. Might not be your problem but worth a look.
