Hardware :: Best Streaming Box With Netflix?

May 9, 2010

I'm looking for a Streaming box to go in my living room with only a few parameters

1) It streams Netflix

2) It can be connected to external hard drives for movies (mp4) & music (aac)

I'd like to keep spending to a minimum. Is there anything out there with these features that isn't too expensive? Blu-Ray and everything else would be welcome, but I'm looking to spend no more than $250-300.

Applications :: Netflix Not Streaming HD With Safari?

Sep 2, 2010

Netflix recently announced that they will steam HD content to mac and pc users, but so far it does not work for me. I'll pick a show I know is in HD and play it, but while it shows the HD icon in the lower right, when I mouse over it the icon's pop-up displays the "allow HD button" checked and above that reads "not playing in HD"

I've tried this with several different sources with the same results. Anyone else with this problem? Is there a solution?

BTW, I meet all of Netflix's requirements for streaming to PC in HD:

Silverlight 3 or higher

A screen resolution of at least 800 x 600

A high-speed internet connection at time of playback (typically 5 Mbps or higher)

MacBook Pro :: Hooking A MBP To HDTV For Netflix Streaming?

Jan 18, 2010

I was wondering what type of cable I need if I want to hook my Mac Book Pro (the new one, 15" 2.53GHZ) to my new LG HDTV coming in tomorrow, I've never had a HDTV before and I really want to use Netflix streaming to hook up to the TV or DVD Blu Ray player which is a LG too. I couldn't afford the high dollar wireless TV's that do one, but I found a nice 47" one for $999. I just don't want to buy the wrong cord without double checking first.

MacBook Pro :: Rectangular Artifacts During Netflix Streaming?

Apr 27, 2012

I've recently begun seeing random, darkish rectangles appear and disappear while watching a streamed Netflix movie.  Last night when it began happening, I disconnected my laptop and substituted a friend's, whose is almost identical to mine: hers is early 2011, mine is late 2011. Hers showed no rectangles. 

Several facts:

-- viewing in fullscreen mode

-- using video mirroring to display on TV

-- using WiFi

-- latest OS and Silverlight software being used

-- no other apps open

-- both laptops are MBP 13"  

Can anyone speculate as to what these randomly sized rectangles might be?  Are they artifacts of video compression or streaming?  Could they in any way indicate a failing video card?

Applications :: Netflix Streaming Causes Firefox/safari Crashing?

Jan 18, 2009

When using either Firefox or Safari, recently, to watch instant movies via Netflix, the browser unexpectedly closes. Sometimes it gets to the buffering stage. I've cleared all my private data (history, caches, cookies...) and redownloaded flash/shockwave. I have the most current Silverlight too.

Any ideas? It worked perfectly since I've had it (about a month or two), up until today.

IMac :: Loud Fan After 1 Hour Of Streaming Netflix Movie?

Aug 21, 2010

I just bought my first Apple product, an i-Mac 21.5. I love it except that a loud fan turns on after streaming a movie (netflix) after about an hour. If I simply turn off the computer for 5 minutes the fan turns off and I can resume streaming without the fan. - This has happened repeatedly in the week that I've owned the i-mac. I took it back to my Apple store for a checkup and they told me nothing was wrong. - Is this normal for new i-macs?

Mac Mini :: Can I Use The Mini To Download Netflix Streaming Movies?

Oct 19, 2010

I have an older Mac mini, model A1176, 2005. I haven't upgraded to OS 10 yet, but I bought a family pack, and I can do that if I need to. Can I use the mini to download Netflix streaming movies? It has a CD slot; can I use it to play DVDs? My tv is also older, just a plain tv (no HD, no blueray) but it has a red-white-yellow port.

If I can do these things, what do I need to buy, and what do I need to do?

Hardware :: Won't Work Wih AEBS / Bootcamp And AirDisk Streaming

Mar 8, 2009

1. The Bootcamp installation of Windows XP sees my wlan network but fails to connect. Only the guest network works with xp.

2. On the OS X side: connected to the dualband network via N, when I try to play a movie which is stored on my airdisk, every few minutes it skips a few seconds... very annoying.

My AEBS wireless setting is set to automatic

I tried some different settings with really strange results. With the networkutility I checked the connectionspeed:

Restarted the AEBS with the setting "automatic = a/n - b/g/n" -> 300Mbit/s
Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 130Mbit/s

Restarted the AEBS with the setting "N Only 5GHz - b/g " -> 300Mbit/s
Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 54Mbit/s

PowerPC :: Streaming Video/audio - EMac To TV

Dec 5, 2008

I've got an old eMac in my den and I'd like to stream videos to the TV ( Toshiba 20" CRT ) in my living room.

I purchased the Apple video adapter, 24 feet of s-video cable and 20 feet of rca ( left & right ) cable with an adapter on one end to fit into the headphone jack on the computer. I hooked it up and there's no picture or sound on the tv when I stream a video.

Also, the icons on my desktop get larger once I plug the video adapter into the eMac.

I'm turning the TV to a Video section.

PowerPC :: 700mhz Usable For Streaming Itunes?

Jun 2, 2010

basically I am looking to use an original eMac 700mhz with 768MB RAM in my living room to stream itunes from our other computers. Only reason i am even considering it is because eMacs are way cheap on eBay, less than an airport express for use with airtunes, plus i could check email etc on it.

PowerPC :: Web Pages Loading And Streaming Video Slow

Mar 17, 2008

I'm wondering how much life is left in my 900 MHz G3 iBook (v2.3 with 256 MB). I only use it for web browsing, word processing, and minor media storage, but it's definitely showing its age. Web pages take a while to load and streaming video's too slow to be usable. Would a RAM upgrade solve this, or is it even worth the investment?

Applications :: Make Safari 4 Work With 1Password?

Jun 8, 2009

Just thought I would post this article from when the Safari 4 beta came out and would not work with 1Password. I just did the same thing with the final release of Safari 4 that came out today and it worked just fine. The only thing different is you need to change the value to 5530.17 instead of 5528.16.


Im sure 1Password will fix it in the next day or two, but for those of you who cant wait this will work.

OS X :: USB Drive Disconnect - Make It Work Like Windows?

Nov 7, 2009

There is something that has been bothering me something fierce since I made the switch to the Mac.

When I used Windows I could connect and disconnect USB drives whenever I wanted without fear of losing data. The way Windows works, it's designed for this so you don't have to "eject" the disk every time.

OS X however is different. I have a USB hub, which has at any given time at least 4 drives plugged into it. If I want to say, grab my laptop and head out the door, I have to wake it up, eject all the disks/media cards, and then go.

I find this to be extremely annoying, especially when I forget.

Is there a way to make OS X behave like Windows in this regard?

Applications :: How To Make 1Pass Work With Entourage

Dec 1, 2009

(I've contacted them 3 times through their Contact Us form, but never received a response; and no, it didn't end up in my Spam folder either - I checked it regularly) I decided to ask my questions here.How to make 1Pass work with Entourage? When I open the latter it will only prompt me to save the password to Mac OS Keychain, but not 1Password. I tried adding an Email Account in 1Password, but it's kind of confusing - what do I enter under "Port number" - is it Incoming port number in the first "Port number" space, and the Outcoming port number in the second "Port number" space? And what do I select under "Authentication method"?? Why are all the forms listed twice anyway?
