  1. Seems the hole in my wall has too many ethernet in it to fit in an hdmi cable too. Does anyone know if hdmi to ethernet adapters will work with a switch in the middle? One of the ethernet that does through my wall to my tv cabinet connects to a small gigabit switch. If the switch does not present a problem, then I'm good to go once I get a pair of adapters.
  2. What is the range on bluetooth? Would it work through a drywall to another room? Or I could just get a bluetooth dongle, as you mentioned. Actually, I think I have a Logitech F710 around somewhere. Not sure if that would be a problem with the other wireless dongle in the room, though for my universal remote.
  3. Perhaps wifi gamepads do not exist. Bummer. I could run a long usb cable to a usb hub in the other room and use a usb gamepad. I'm not sure if I should be concerned about potential receiver confusion. In the same room is a usb receiver for my Logitech universal remote. Would having two receivers like that in close proximity be a problem? I feel that wifi gamepads should be a thing. That would be very handy.
  4. I recently purchased a new MSI GE75 Raider laptop. Which means I now have my previous one (MSI Dominator Pro with GTX980) lying around. I am trying to think of something fun to do with it. I already have a dedicated Plex server and since the GTX 980 won't transcode x265, there is not much benefit to moving that role to this device. I have more than enough file server space on my LAN as well, so I thought maybe I could make my older gaming laptop into a dedicated BigBox machine. It does sit in my home office right now which is behind one wall from my TV room. When I bought the hous
  5. Same here. I would have happily paid 4x that amount. Android was sorely lacking in a decent emu frontend, and LB/BB is, by far, the best out there in my opinion. Seeing it ported to Android is something I have long wanted to see happen.
  6. There is an Android version available now. It is, I think, $5 in the Play Store. I have it on my Shield TV. I haven't had too much of a chance to try it out yet--too busy with City of Heroes
  7. I do have a Geforce GTX 908M in my laptop, so I could stream to my Shield, but that doesn't really interest me for some reason. I like being able to do everything I want to do using the game controller and (for the most part) not even needing to leave Kodi. I can add Android apps to the favorite bar in Kodi and just launch Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime, Arcbrowser, etc from Kodi and then when I exit those other apps, I return back to Kodi. Very wife friendly. Agreed, re front ends on Android. Not much to write home about. I tried about 4 of them, but settled on Arcbrowser. It's n
  8. Thank you for the update.
  9. I know this has been asked before, but I was curious if your position has changed at all given that Android TV seems to be spiking a bit in popularity. I recently bought an Nvidia Shield TV and I love it, but I would love it so much more if I could use Bigbox rather than my current launcher, Arcbrowser. I have a license for Bigbox on my Windows laptop and I think it's the best thing since sliced bread, and I would happily pay more for an Android license. There just is nothing that compares to Bigbox and I miss having it on my HTPC. I switched to a Shield TV because going from Kodi to Bigbox,
  10. Thank you very much! One other quick question if anyone knows the answer. Does scroll game details work? Nothing seems to happen when I select it. I saw a couple of other threads when I searched that seemed to indicate that the feature does not work?
  11. Hi, I enabled remember separate view for each platform, but I cannot seem to figure out how to then actually create a view for each platform. I've scrubbed through all the options, and I don't see it. Thanks
  12. I think I get it now. It's too bad, I was hoping I could save myself the trouble of playlisting each game and just make a playlist of out of a genre in a few clicks and then have that playlist appear under Platforms. Oh, nevermind. Was easier than I thought. I just held down the shift key and quickly selected all games in the Role-Playing category and added them to a playlist. Easy peasy!
  13. Sorry, I'm not sure we're on the same page. If we are, I apologize for the further confusion. What I would like to see is like this: Platforms>Genesis >NES >SNES >Custom Platform (all games from all platforms that match "Role-Playing") Is that what you understood me to be asking for?
