    Have you tried Automatic DHCP not a static? if you have to use a static can you set the static to a higher number? IP's tend to get assigned to devices in sequence-ish. so low numbers like 192.168.1.10 will be used before 192.168.1.50. you might have a device that is trying to step on your...

    Well I figured it out. F&^king GARMIN DEVICES. I have had issues with commander one and accessing the Garmin devices if Garmin express was running but never had an issue with Commander one and other MTP devices. Garmin express was not running and had not been started but the watch had been...

    there is some discussion on prior pages on M1 based Mac's having communication issues with the AK. the solution has been to use a USB C to USB A converter and then connecting the USB A to the AK via another cable. I don't know if you have tried this. I know it is not the ideal solution, but...

    did a little more brainstorming to see if I could come up with some other ideas. did a little looking at the m1 chip setup and the more I read the more I dont like. the m1 chip does not support a key intel Mac feature called bootcamp. bootcamp allows you to run windows on a Mac in a separate...

    Hi Steve. have had similar issues ?(not exactly the same, but similar) I have found that you have to import in chunks rather than selecting an entire directory. When I do my imports I navigate to my music directory and then sort by artist alphabetically. I then import all the "A"'s then when...

    1st step is. to determine if you are going to use the DAC in the SP2000 or rely on a external DAC. if you are using a the DAC in the SP2000 (after all that is why you paid all the money for in the SP2000) and analog connection into an analog amp is the most direct choice (note I did not say...

    Strangely I had a problem transferring files using commander one after the update. A reboot (turning off the player and restarting - not a factory reset) also resolved the issue. Also rebooted the laptop which could have been an issue as well, but who knows.

    I tend to opt for using the supplied internet modem from the internet provider since it will update automatically for provider changes (manually having to update a third party modem can be a pain and obsolescence can also be an issue) and then connecting that device via Ethernet cable to my...

    Hello Sir, While I do not have experience with BT devices, I do have experience with similar devices here in the US. I often frown on using "supplied" internet wifi solutions as BT (UK) Spectrum (US) Frontier (US) et all. These devices are subject to the internet providers updates and...

    AirPods Max

    LOL other than the Sony these are cheaper than almost all any of my headphones or IEM's. Wanted them to work. they are just too heavy for me. not everyone will feel this way I know, but for me the weight is just too much
