Subtitles in VLC on Android TV [SOLVED]

Until today, I have always had trouble with .SRT subtitles when watching videos on my Android TV device (the awesome NVIDIA Shield TV). The subtitle option was always greyed out and there was no way to load subtitles (even if they had the same filenames etc.) 🙁 The issue appears to be related to watching videos over SAMBA and launching VLC via an app like ES File Explorer. In those instance VLC will not be able to locate the subtitles…. Thankfully, there is a

LG G3 Questions

LG G3 Questions: Hello, please excuse my ignorance. So if I have a T-Mobile SIM card which I am using in my phone right now and put it in a LG G3 phone for example will this work. And if so, let’s say four or five months down the line I decide to switch to AT&T do I have to do anything different at all apart from just switching out an AT&T SIM card for my T-Mobile SIM card.

[SOLVED] NVIDIA Shield TV controller won’t power on

The NVIDIA Shield TV has been one of my favorite tech items over the past couple years. It reliably performs a variety of tasks and has truly passed the test of time.

LG Pad 8.3 tablet

Here is where I list items that I have sold on eBay. These entries go in the bought & sold category which is mainly for reference/historical purposes 🙂 This particular entry is for one of my favorite tablets, the  LG G Pad 8.3, this little guy was ideal for Candy Crush and other games. The 1920×1200 IPS screen is absolutely phenomenal. A bit too small for work though, so I eventually sold it to someone that could use it. Android LG G Pad 8.3″

Recover full space on MicroSD card [SOLVED]

Q. Can you please help me recover the space on one of my microsdxc cards? I installed a custom OS on one with an sd formatter and now it only shows like 1/16th of it’s full size 🙁 I have tried the SD card on my laptop, my Android phone and my tablet. They ALL show the smaller size and don’t allow me to format the full size! Would like to do the recovery on Windows if possible. Thx!!! -Sam Staffton
