Sure thing. Keep an eye on the motors forum in my M3 thread for an update over the weekend, likely Sunday! One thing I am looking forward to is being able to use Pushbullet again in the car and now being able to use Netflix/Prime Video as they don't work on Andorid 4.4 which is what is on the old unit.

More RAM and storage also means I can use other more demanding apps that would have memory issues on the old one with only 1GB of RAM. Can also install ClassicBoy and play all old console games with the XBOX 1 gamepad paired via bluetooth as the old unit didn't have bluetooth gamepad profiles :cool:

What a time to be alive.


In other news, ordered a £5 optical cable off Amazon as testing out what I suspect to be USB noise impacting some deep vocals (sound crackle only on voices and only sometimes) in videos going to my DAC which is audible on the speakers. It was going direct from mobo USB to DAC so am trying out Optical out from the mobo into the DAC instead. Sound quality is obviously the exact same (turne doff extra processing and set the same rates in Windows) but so far the vocal noise heard when on USB seems to be gone - Need more testing though as it was only audible on some videos. Easy test for a fiver though and might just keep optical anyway as the cable is more flexible and saves a USB slot from being used. Also I find optical audio cables fascinating to this day.

You probably had an earth loop/noise issue through the cable. The optical connection simply decouples the two components completely other than photons.

Anyway - purchased today: Seago seaguard 300N active. I've borrowed a mate's second lifejacket and although good it's only a 165N so it can't flip me over from face down with a floatation suit in winter.

Well 1700kg if you want to be a pedant :p


Hehe - well I've moved 40 tons of soil, twice, to get it into the ~8 ton skips. I kept the soil in those bags to help keep it neat and tidy (well that's what I told the Mrs) people get used to calling them ton bags for some reason.. in reality they're about 0.8 of ton for lifting but you can add stuff them up to a ton if they're static.
