    In my continuing blog to myself...

    Upgraded to a Raspberry Pi 4. Performance is good, however!!!, I had a problem after installing Linux. With Noobs, I was able to select the OS while having the device plugged via HDMI into my receiver, which I believe is 4K ready. However, after booting up after installing the OS, black screen. After several minutes, it finally showed the screen but it was two overlays, one with a full screen image and another the top half being repeated on the bottom half of the screen. WTF?

    I checked the video and it was outputting to 4K, didn't need 4K. Made change, but wasn't able to accept it quick enough, and then went back to black screen. On a hunch, plugged it into the 4K tv directly, worked fine. Made it step down to 1080p, accepted the change, plugged into receiver, it works.

    Got everything re-sync'd with the new device, streams Captain Marvel. I had 4 moments of buffering during the movie, but that was it.

    I noticed that my Roku 3920x has a "low" or "weak" WIFI signal. The Roku is sitting a floor above the router, which is almost directly below it. While this Roku allowed more Codecs, this might have also been a potential issue, as many seem to complain about the WIFI strength. I tried playing Incredibles 2 at about 30 MBps and it stumbled on it. I've played a 40 MBps film, and it was fine. So curious.

    Does your router have external antennas? If they're pointing straight up, try tilting them at a 45 degree angle.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    And pointing toward the outside wall to give better coverage inside the house.

    No antennas. I have much better Wifi signal with the newish router I got when I went Fiber. So I know it isn’t the router, though I did reposition a little a year or so ago when I realized I sorta had it in a dead zone.

    The 3920x has a rep for wifi issues apparently.
