  1. Does anyone know if there is a way I can set something so that the xfinity gateway will only do a reset/reboot when I want it to? Way to many times now it will just turn itself off and reboot in the middle of one of my Iracing events which boots me out of server (no connection) and then I get to finish last multiple laps down depending on length of race left. I ask as it just did this to me where I was p14 on grid and was running p5 (p=Position) with a great chance to possible finish top 3 which would of gained me a great deal or IR and SR (ratings they use to put you in with drivers
  2. Actually I use a Budget ( what most people call budget setup) as I do not have the $$ for a better one. I currently use the Logitech G29 Wheel, I had a G force 6+R Shifter but they designed it where the reverse switch was on the bottom (you had to push down and push Right and Back to get reverse) and it hit the bottom of the case and broke a connection pin. And for pedals A guy had a Set of Thrust master T3PA Pro's that had bad Potentiometers and he actually gave them to me all I had to do was buy the Potentiometers and replace them. From what I have heard from other people in
  3. Sorry I am so late replying I somehow missed this, But if you have checked out some of the LSRTV stuff, look up iracing on you tube also they have the 24 hour races where they really run 24 hours have teams where different drivers do like 1-3 hour sessions and they switch throughout the event, Indy car stuff, IRX ( I believe is Ralley cross) World Of Outlaws Late Model and Dirt Sprint cars . Quite a broad range or racing types .
  4. I sure hope you all missed that race it was horrible, first after qualifying I loaded the wrong setup so I was about .5 to .75 slower then I should be, almost had that worked out but forgot to shut my door to my room all the way and my cat decided she wanted to climb in my lap to take a Nap (which she does on occasion), she got tied up in wheel and caused me to crash then when I yelled at her to get down she freaked out and decided to go under desk where my cables are and got tangled in HDMI and unplugged monitor LOL. Thank goodness we have drop races and a 36 race season so I can make up
  5. Here is the you tube link to Tonight's (Thursday) broadcast and I am running the #333, This is open setup series so I hope I spent enough time massaging my setup to run up front. North West Truck Series race at Michigan Via iRacing and LSRTV Dang almost forgot Race grid is at 9:00 PM PDT The broadcast starts at around 8:45 PM PDT
  6. @nanobot You should look up the iRacing Youtube channel as well as LSRTV on Youtube as they have all sorts of races Broadcast from, Dirt Midgets, Winged Sprints, UMP as well as the Coca Cola iRacing Pro Series and misc Road course stuff too. I hear quite a few people talk about it like it is a arcade game or so on, But in reality they have done a great job with making the tracks look and feel exactly like the real world ones as well as working the telemetry and physics to be as close to real as possible ( Obviously there is not the G forces or the wind nor the possibility of injury if you
  7. Here are 2 quick Pics I got of the Testmy.net Tundra I'll be running tonight at Michigan, I have a practice I am getting ready to do ( Just waiting for USPS they are supposed to Deliver a 15 " 1500 Watt 4 Ohm Sub and I cannot hear door if I have my headphones on I use for racing LOL) I will get a few more pics at better angles during practice to share to really show how the truck looks.
  8. Ya I seen the way did not do a very good job of showing my car or the Logos on it, Though I guess I can expect that as I have missed some of the cup races , the truck though I have not missed any. I'm sorry I thought I posted my car is the #333 I'm also the #333 in truck. It is kinda Ironic how I had to give up positions as to not wreck the #40 car 5-6 different times for his driving tactics then he ends up winning and I get 7th. Thing is that kind of stuff is what i'll remember next time and maybe won't be so giving, It just takes a Minor bump at Corner entrance to cause
  9. HA found the link to Mondays Cup series event lol, took me forever LOL iRacing NW Cup Series Michigan :)
  10. So some know I run 2 cars in a League and have TMN Logos on them as what a better place to spread the word then some place where your internet speed and latency is equal if not more important to success. Our league Broadcasted our races last year on a smaller company which this year purchased the rites and merged with two huge broadcasting companies so now on Mondays and Thursdays were on on LSRTV which is livesimracing.com. I do not get anything from this but a cool truck and cup looking car and just thought I would remind everyone in case anyone is interested in watching Si
  11. But still... you're getting 50% of that. Over the years I've stated in general that you should get at least 80% before complaining. Which is 20/2.4 Mbps... right about where your speed was before. Interesting how much I have forgotten over the years I remember this you said oMG back when I started using Testmy.net. SO even when I was at my best connections (pre Pandemic) I was just hovering around the 78-80% range. What IRKS me most is the blatant way Xfinity, and im sure others to push their speed tests and recommend you test to the closest server to your location (The
  12. Well one thing this Pandemic has done has been great for some companies, IE iRacing and anyone who sells sim Racing hardware like Wheels, Pedals, Sim rigs and computers. I seen in one post or tweet that since NASCAR has been doing the iRacing stuff on fox and FS1 that about 30,000 people have signed up for iRacing and every single wheel, pedal, sim rig has been sold out from every place I have looked. The original reason I mentioned this before I sidetracked myself was to let the Testmy.net people know (All my iRacing vehicles have testmy.net decals on them) is we finally have a new
  13. Has anyone else noticed from 25-40% drop in speed since the isolation has been ordered? I remember seeing it somewhere and was thinking I must be lucky as my speed has been same till 3 days ago now I am about 50% of Xfinity advertised speed and just wanted to get other members feedback thanks .
  14. I do not use Facebook but do use OBS it looks like the settings you have here are the same ones You Tube calls for I imagine it is close for Face book, Though I have been hearing a lot of people complaining about streaming and Facebook. Have you tried streaming to you tube or Twitch Oh one thing I just noticed yo are using the NVENC encoder I read in the OBS Wiki that you will get better quality of stream using the Software encoder and the CPU if possible, but if you are recording then the NVENC Encoder is much better. I deal with a lot of people who stream iRacing I myself ta
  15. oh ya tour right I remember that now it was just like you said , it was much smaller more like my Creative X-fi 5.0 Pro usb sound card about the size of 1-1/2 credit cards and 1/2 thick had the Monitor out, keyboard and mouse connection, this here is much larger, Sorry to have be incorrect about your setup.
