Looks very similar to this powerboard, which has some photos of the opened device in a review:...

Had one of these fail on me today (1 of 1; not an amazing sample size), purchased April 2017. (The drive failed, not the USB port, so...

Bit off topic, but do you have examples of ewaste recyclers that give stuff away or even sell working stuff? So often I see stuff in ewaste...

Possibly not - sometimes mesh systems will use different VLANs for guest and main network. (The TP-Link M5 does this but from memory only...

The duration of updates is a good thing to consider too. I have bought pixels for a while because they had the longest update period of any...

Left ING a while back, and was looking again at high-interest savings account. Concluded that the effort of ensuring the savings were...

Warning for those wanting to use these with Tasmota: the firmware is too new for reflashing without cracking them open. Having said that,...

Interestingly, the answer to (1) is inconsistent with one I got when I emailed or called (from memory) - I think support said that the unit...

Code only valid with Afterpay, which presumably precludes discounted gift cards?

I'm afraid I don't know, sorry. All mine are configured via the China server, and I'm so bedded into that now that I'm not going to change.
15/03/2021 - 20:24
I'm actually with you. One of my frustrations with the Google TV is that people can't just arbitrarily cast from their phone with their...

I've got 3 Xiamoi gateways, 10-odd temp sensors, two vibration sensors, 5 single-switch buttons, 3 multi-switch buttons, 3 cubes, and 2...

In the recent bargain (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/608780 for the LAPAC1200C) I grabbed two of the LAPAC1750C - in part based on...

Had been thinking about buying a PS4 to play last of us 2, but wasn't sure how to sell the dream to partner. Solution: buy a PS5 disc...

Update: when I made contact with the seller again they arranged to replace the defective pair, so that was a positive response.

My experience with Dudios true wireless buds (one pair, not this exact model; purchased from this seller) has been pretty poor - they would...

I have one of these in each room in my house. Good battery life (>1 year), good enough accuracy, work well with zigbee2mqtt. If I didn't...

I've tried OVH and I found the user interface for managing VPSs very slow and clunky compared to DigitalOcean or AWS. The support response...

Currently plain Xbox One controllers are $65 at CPL, and in stock at several locations:...

Ok, so I tracked down the relevant file config file from Broadlink, despite the autodetection not working. (Note: I did this manually after...

Thanks. Unfortunately those Daikin codes don't match my control, but that's OK - I can recreate them.
15/07/2018 - 23:14
I'm currently in the process of trying to add my Daikin air conditioner to my Home Assistant set-up using a Broadlink RM Mini 3. I've...

That eBay feedback though... 97.5% positive (although based on the complaints it looks like they had previously been misrepresenting...

Damn. I bought it for exactly this. Well, I'd been waiting for a reason to try out https://github.com/danielwelch/hassio-zigbee2mqtt
08/07/2018 - 16:46
Got one, but man that site is terrible. Couldn't sign up using email/password (kept on getting 'maximum email length 50 characters', even...

Yeah, my father purchased the 16/512 Surface Book on the previous deal (from Microsoft eBay) and it's great. You'd have to be pretty brave...

I'm looking forward to reading the ToS of the tool to see if it includes anything about "leveraging students' computing power" for mining...

I used GoCatch for a while, right up until I had a problem with a driver charging me for a trip without picking me up. Contacted support...

I have several of these units, and they use a relay, not a TRIAC. The also claim CE/RoHS/FCC certifications (see...
