Re: Spotify webbrowser suddenly stopped working with firefox

I am @work now so I can't give hardware stats, I also don't get how that is relevant as it has worked perfectly fine for over a year. It is just my theory that spotify did something to their services like an update and I have to update firefox or something. Or as a vulcan would put it: "it would be ...

Re: TV stays black when turned on.

yeah I forgot to mention the most important part. It also happens with waking up from sleepmode IIRC. I have changed the sleep settings lately I believe. I will verify tonight if the PC was actually in sleepmode instead of shutdown. I made a shutdown desktop on my desktop. Currently I am using it to...

HTPC forget resolution sometimes

My HTPC sometimes forgets it's set resolution and picks the 4K resolution of my tv which makes everything 4x too small and totally unreadable. How can I fix the resolution so it does not change anymore?

I am having a minor problem with my TV and my HTPC. If I turn on the TV and then the HTPC everything is fine. But when I turn on the HTPC first and the TV later. The TV doesn't get a signal and stays black. What I can do, is opening a virtual terminal (Ctrl + Alt + F1). When I do this the screen no ...

Re: Screen turns off after resume from hibernation

I have the same problem, after hibernating my TV stays black. Though I have no solution I do have a tip:

For me it helped to press Ctrl + Alt + F1. That opens a virtual terminal and somehow it also turns my TV back on. Than you can issue a reboot command and you don't have to hold the power button

Re: Which parameters must I add to the chrome browser?

I am sorry but what kind of trolling answer is this?? Have you even watched that video? Or did you skip the video because it has twice as many dislikes than likes? The only thing he does, is resetting google chrome and that's it. You'll lose everything, bookmarks, extensions, your account settings e...

Which parameters must I add to the chrome browser?

I am a bit annoyed by all google notifications. For my media center I made desktop icons which for instance opens the chrome browser in kiosk mode to a certain website, such as netflix or spotify. Especially the "chrome didn't shut down, restore pages?" has really got to go. I don't know which -para...

Can you use a computer with mint as a chromecast?

I am not talking about casting to a chromecast with a mint computer but to have the mint computer act like it is a chromecast. I finally have a working HTPC with a mint xfce desktop and I was wondering if, as an extra feature, you could do something with it so you can cast to the device from your ph...

Re: Cannot get sound on my TV with Mint

I fixed the problem by updating the kernel via the software updater.

I already tried everything else. I spent over a week trying to solve the problem, clicked 30 links, did 30 things. I came across many simple as well as complicated "solutions" and none of them worked.

Cannot get sound on my TV with Mint

I bought a Minix Z83-4 HTPC for my 4k tv. I had a problem with windows 10 (besides the update terror). Trying to play DVDs wasn't fast enough, it was just a little bit laggy. Anyways long story short I installed latest Linux mint with the xfce desktop environment last week and now my TV has no audio...
