I’m setting up my Sony receiver and couldn’t find a remote code listed to operate my Cisco Explorer 8640HDC set top box. By trial and error I found codes 816 and 817 operate the channel up and down but nothing else.
I replaced my Pioneer VSX 816 A/V Receiver with a Sony STR-DN1030. I think the Pioneer was going bad with popping and static coming through the speakers. The new Sony performs beautifully with clear sound. The surround sound is better too. Setup and manual are confusing but the sound quality makes up for that.

I’ve been watching Crunchyroll on my phone which comes in handy when I’m not home. The screen is a bit small which leads to eye strain after prolonged use. I was curious about using the phone’s HDMI. The Samsung Droid Charge (SCH-i510) comes with a HDMI port. You’ll need a HDMI to HDMI Type D (micro) cable. The micro HDMI resembles your phone’s micro USB cable. You’ll also need a 1080 capable HDTV.
Initially, I purchased a Sigmac 15″ HDTV (480-1080i) for my phone however no video appeared. The TV flashed 1080i once hooked up but no picture. Then I purchased a Samsung T22B350ND 21.5″ LED. It worked fine. I was watching Squid Girl on a TV screen 5 times bigger than my phone’s with easy to read subtitles.
Don’t expect 1080 HDMI quality. It’s not even DVD quality. It sort of looks like a low resolution YouTube video with jagged lines and pixelation. The only purpose the HDMI serves is to screen capture your phone and enlarge it to your TV screen.
Just finished the k-drama Couple or Trouble from Crunchyroll. It based on a Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel movie called Overboard. I never saw the movie so I can’t compare them. Anna Jo is a hard-to-please rich bitch who ironically ends up as housekeeper after losing her memory. Anna’s character is really irritating which is sort of a turnoff. The pace of the show is slow at times but you’ll be rewarded with a great ending.
Just finished the Korean drama Queen of Housewives (a.k.a My Wife is a Superwoman) on Crunchyroll. It a love triangle comedy involving three couples. The background is the corporate world and all the backstabbing that goes with it. I enjoyed the show although there were some lulls at the end. Actress Sun Woo Sun (pic far left) is very pretty. She reminds me of Japanese singer Mika Nakashima. Lee Hye Young plays sexy spiteful bitch (pic far right). She reminds me of young Kim Cattral–I know that’s a stretch. Actor Yoon Sang Hyun is in this one as well. I’ve seen him in the Korean drama My Fair Lady.
This was a fun series that went fast for 80 episodes. That’s right, it took me 80 hours to finish this show. Great cinematography for a tv series. Lady Susano was just gorgeous. There were some funny moments. Many of the characters over acted their parts such as prince Young-po with his eye-rolling and faces. It was funny how many times Chumong’s enemies cursed his name every time they got pissed–I was thinking of making a YouTube video of it.
I simplified the functionality and design. There is only one drop down box now instead of two making it easier to switch currency. The results now have a currency symbol emphasizing what you have exchanged. It was tougher customizing than I thought because the code is written with jQuery which is new for me.
