TiVo Roamio Pro - Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) For some time now, TiVo has been trying to become a whole-home entertainment solution. With the all-in-one TiVo Roamio Pro DVR, it has done just that. Though I don't know that it's wise to name a product after something that has an indelible relationship to a tragedy, the company's newest DVR goes hard-drive-to-hard-drive with Dish's Hopper with Sling , offering lots of tuners, tons of storage, and options for sending content to other rooms without buying additional DVRs. It also makes it easier to load up your mobile devices (at least, iOS ones for now) with recordings. The Roamio boxes further sweeten the on-demand video pot with a heavy dollop of online video options, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and YouTube, meaning you can jump to those services -- and search them -- without having to switch the input on your TV. Unlike the Hopper, the new TiVo won't automatically skip ads or record every prime-time network show, but at least you can use it with your current cable service. Holy $#!

How to build your own computer This is the third and final part of CNET's guide to building your own computer. Make sure you have read part one and part two before proceeding. Having all these small and expensive parts sitting in front of you may look like a daunting task, but in reality the setup process, while long, is relatively simple. Having tools like a box cutter, scissors, zip ties, and a screwdriver by your side will only make the process that much quicker. The most important task, and I cannot stress this enough, is to ground yourself. This can be done by touching the metal on your case. In short, be sure to use common sense when handling your system. With that said, let's get started. External build Step one: Motherboard We are going to begin with the motherboard. Step two: CPU Inside of the Intel or AMD box will be a microprocessor and a large fan, called a heat sink, and it ensures that the processor doesn't overheat. Step three: RAM Installing the RAM is as easy as one, two, and three. Internal build

Two things are vital to keeping your network safe: proper settings and prudence. Here are some router and network settings tips that will help keep your home network safe. Before I begin, note that with most routers you'll need to access the Web interface to change the settings. 1. Note that depending on the router, this password will be referred to in the Web interface as either the encryption key, the pass-key, the pre-shared key, or the passphrase.

The two settings that you should change to keep your router safe are its default IP address and default log-in password. 3. Also, you should turn off the UPnP feature. 4. 5.
