Singtel Mio TV upgrades firmware

Today when i turned on the set top box, a new firmware was downloaded to the box. The whole process took about 10 mins or so.

After spending some time testing the new firmware, other than some comestic changes to the interface. Now you can subscribe to the Rent A Pack channel directly from the interface. I noticed that the HDMI bug is still there. Volume levels using component video or RCA is also way softer than using HDMI.

ASUS P5E-VM HDMI Intel G35 Mainboard

Came across a review of this ASUS P5E-VM HDMI Intel G35 Mainboard. I am truly shocked. I have been using a G965 for playback of video, but the video is terribly rendered.

The reviewer mentioned that HQV results are very much better using this integrated graphics. I am not sure how well it will look like as it seems that there is no DX10 driver ready yet for this board.

You can read about it here.
