It's very capable. I'm a total nut when it comes to watching series, and i usually watch them in one go (15 hours a day, for a few days) and noticed no lag.

There were however, moments when it "skipped" a bit of the audio, but i think that has to do with the cable i'm using(bend port, lot of electrical interference)

This version has been altered in both hexidecimal and RGB codes to be green, but the result is no change... not sure what I'm missing as every other code in the config file is either grey or white!?

the colour "B8B8B8" is grey :

I'm not sure how familiar you are with hexadecimal code, and colour code, so let me explain a bit:

The colour code are made up of 3 sets of numbers, ranging from 00 to FF. 00 is 0, while FF is 255.

each set represents a prime colour: ##|##|## red|green|blue.

If you want a pure red colour, you have FF0000 (255 R, 0 G, 0 B)

If the values for all three colours are the same, you can go from white (000000) to black (FFFFFF) and every grey tint in between.

Hexadecimal means "six-ten" or sixteen, as it's a number system ranging from 0 to 15( numbers 10 to 15 represented by A to F) as such, you have 16 symbols representing a number (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F)

To transfer the hexadecimal numbers to decimal numbers, you must first set them in binary. I would love to explain this fully to you, but it's quite difficult to do so.

binary is read from right to left.

Each "1" or "0" represents a (decimal) value, the most right one is 1, then 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128. (So in correct order: 128,64,32,16,8,4,2,1)

If one bit(a single binary number) is in the "on" position (1) you should count the decimal number. If it's in the "off" position (0) you shouldn't.

11111111 equals to the decimal value of 255 ( 128+64+32+16+8+4+2+1=255)

Example: the decimal number 22 is 00010110 in binary: (the bold numbers represent the "on" bits) 128,64,32,

**16**,8,

**4**,

**2**,1 (16+4+2=22)

The easy way of calculating numbers to binary is looking at the largest amount in a number that is represented in binary:

251(dec) to binary: 128 is the largest, so you subtract this from the decimal number. (10000000 in bin)

This leaves you with 123. You can subtract 64 from this (01000000 in bin)

This leaves you with 59. You can subtract 32 from this (00100000 in bin)

This leaves you with 27. You can subtract 16 from this (00010000 in bin)

This leaves you with 11. You can subtract 8 from this (00001000 in bin)

This leaves you with 3. You can subtract 2 from this (00000010 in bin)

This leaves you with 1. You can subtract 1 from this (00000001 in bin)

Adding these bits together you get 11111011.

how do you calculate hexadecimal in binary:

F(hex) = 15(dec) = 1111

FF(hex) = 15,15(dec) =1111,1111 (you add the first before the 2nd hexadecimal number)

11111111 equals 255 in decimal. so FF(hex) = 255(dec)

3B(hex) = 3,11(dec) = 0011,1011(bin)

00111011 equals 59 in decimal.

I hope this helps, or at least interests you. (You can always use a binary converter on the web, it's probably easier ;P )
