Windows 10 build 2004 vs. The China Xbox 360 receiver.

Windows 10 build 2004 vs. china xbox receiver.

Or should it be “Windows 10 vs. the world?!?” build 2004 edition.

Back in April 2014 we published a little blog about this cheap Chinese receiver and how we managed to get it back online. Now, back then we were completely aware there was videos on YouTube, Forums, and other sources so such an article was nothing new even back then. As an end-user we found ourselves downloading from garbage share sites that only lead to either misleading links or infected files. It was at this time we used out blogging capabilities and power to make an official tutorial along with all software sources in one place. 190k downloads later, Yeah, we call it a success.

Fast forward to May of 2020, suddenly we were getting rained upon by users which were apart of the Microsoft partner program saying that the build 2004 version of Windows 10 disables their China Receiver. Common sense would be to direct those energies towards Microsoft and maybe they would fix the issue.

It appears that’s simply not the case. Read on if you wish to listen to my diatribe of corporate hate.

Drifting analogs – The return of the shield controller.

Nvidia Sheild Controller Repair Title.

It has landed back on my bench once again.

It pains me whenever something we fixed lands back on our bench once again. Perhaps we should’ve seen the warning signs the first time around. Perhaps we did not test this controller thoroughly enough. Reguardless of the error in our ways the Nvidia controller is back on my bench and this time around we it’s finally un-fucked while learning some things around the way.

Care to listen to my multi-thousand word diatribe? Buckle up and keep on reading!

Pine64 – PiHole – ChammelstrationMiser 4720K?!?!

Pine64 Revival ChammelStrator page header image.

4 years sitting in a desk drawer and now my Pine64 is back online.

A long time ago we did a review of a kickstarter project known as the “Pine64.” It was a $15 dollar arm processor board that came out after the Pi 2 in 2015. We were not one of the super-early backers and thus we got a 2016 board just like everyone else. When we did the review it wasn’t overly favorable because during that era everyone was trying to “Kickstarter” their project but no one really had good foresight as to how to handle their product AFTER it was “kickstart’ ed” for lack of a better word. We had hopes that in due time the OS would get more stable and these Pi’s that carry the Mali400 GPU chip-sets would get useful again. So did it? Quick answer – Yes and No. Read on and if you want to know more.

Ouya support in the year 2020.

Ouya Support Title 2020.

Support for Ouya android console that could in 2020.

We suppose if there is one truly cyberpunk thing about living in 2020 is the fascination of reviving decommissioned hardware from dead companies and continue to use it for our own personal entertainment. Technology that is no longer hindered by any company what-so-ever. Where does the Ouya fit into all of this? Well!

Google’s uncommon downloads and where to find them.

Slander from Google is fun kids!

Earlier this month we produced a blog article illustrating how we screwed up. It was simple, educational, and it really hits close to the homes of independent blogging and website building on how much goes through a single organization which is Google. More importantly, how many websites that piggy-back onto the giant and just happy accept their data as pure truth instead of questioning its overall legitimacy. From a scarier point of view the bots are doing exactly what they are programmed to do and in turn are becoming scape-goat for corporate greed.

To which if AI is going to take the fall for human corruption. Well! Guess that’s ANOTHER reason why robots should wipe us off of the face of the earth!

The point is we want to show you some classic Google incompetence and how everyone accepts this is as “just another day on the internet” when the more appropriate response should be outrage.

Have fun.

Have Fun! The title!

What is “Have fun” for 1000 and the win in the jeopardy championship? Well! This question comes from the social blades:

I have a serious question for @Twitch streamers (partnered or not): If you could give ONE piece of advice to another streamer or to someone who wants to start streaming, what would it be? I’ve heard enough from “stream coaches”. I want to know what the general consensus is.
Well! The answer is right in the title of this blog entry. “Have fun.” Your welcome. We make it painless here at S-Config.com.
 
Also, we’ve heard enough from “Stream Coaches” too. Is that even a real career path in life? It seems like if you utter the word “Stream Coach” on a social network suddenly you get 5-20 follows from automated “Stream Coaches.” It’s almost like uttering the word “SoundCloud” too loudly on Facebook or Twitter. Lol! It doesn’t matter! ;)
 
The question exceeds twitch and actually applies to any project you are working on the net. This is why this lowly blogger is going to intercept a said message that was designed and tailored only for the Twitch community and answer it in a more general sense. For those who aren’t interested in reading.
 
Sometimes, the best advice is always the shortest and perceptibly the easiest. Yet, we’ve seen people fail at doing this very thing. Including ourselves at times!
 
Read on if you want to see how people fail at these two little words.

It appears we screwed up.

Yes, it’s true. We can screw up. We’re pros at it!

In this chapter, we are swept away by tornadoes and dropped off somewhere in Jersey. It’s a serious fear for those who live in the great American mid-west. For those who aren’t following our social networks, we made the switch from Apache to NGinx. Why do you ask? Because after doing a lot of research combined with the fact that a lot of my favorite decentralized programs such as Mastodon using the Nginx platform. It seemed reasonably powerful to give it a go. For the most part, the migration was a success! But like all things new you tend to get a little crazy with configuration and sometimes screw up!

To those who were wondering why things were silent for a bit. Well, there you go! Just table-flipping the website once again! Would you like to know more?

Nvidia Sheild TV – Controller teardown.

Nvidia Sheild Controller Repair Title.

One of these controllers is now on my bench.

It was bound to happen!

Considering that we have three of these Nvidia Shield TV systems that were given friends it’s a no brainer that a few of these controllers were to end up on my repair bench. This time around dealing with a very common issue. Sticky buttons. Maybe it’s just coffee?!?? Maybe too much PornHub! You never know as a repair tech! We should probably wear gloves for this one!

As always everything on s-config.com is an AS-IS basis and is designed for educational purposes. Read our FAQ for more details.. We are not responsible for any damages that occur if you carry out such a repair on your hardware.
