Internet Radio Tuner


Recommended Posts

I know that I can do this with a HTPC, but we get our movies from Netflix, Redbox and on Demand so no need for streaming, and Pictures, well...our BluRay can view those through a DLNA server so that is all good. I know I can do a Boxee Box, Roku, or other unit which outputs to the TV for navigation, I don't want that.

I am curious to find out if anyone has had any experience with an internet radio tuner such as the Grace Internet Radio (or any hardware tuner like this):

Are they really worth the money and pretty much future proof (That is if a station's URL changes, you can edit them in the player, or add new stations)? I am thinking about picking one up in the next few months for our new place and want something that will be worthwhile. :)

      How to get Windows 11 if your PC does not meet minimum requirements
      by Steven Parker



      Earlier today, Microsoft officially announced Windows 11 and with it updated minimum hardware requirements. On Twitter many people have already complained that their relatively new hardware isn't compatible, including Microsoft hardware like the Surface Book 2 (released in 2017) and even newer hardware. This can be blamed on the fact that Microsoft is now requiring a TPM 2.0 module be present in the device, as helpfully explained by the Twitter handle @KorokuGaming below:

      You can check if your device has the compatible TPM by opening Windows Powershell and giving the command get-tpm, here's one from one of our recently built gaming rigs:

      In a nutshell, if you are planning to try out Windows 11 then you'll need the minimum specs below:

      1Ghz 64-bit dual-core processor 4GB RAM 64GB storage 9-inch display (1366x768 resolution) UEFI, Secure Boot TPM 2.0 DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WDDM 2.x

      If you're seeing the above message when running the Windows PC Health Check app, then there is a way to still get Windows 11 next week when it is released to Insiders, you'll need to opt into the Dev channel of Windows Insiders within Windows 10, and you'll automatically get the build when it is released, minimum specs be damned.

      To opt into Windows Insiders, go to All settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program (you may be promoted to turn on Optional Diagnostic & Feedback) and then click on Get started, and when available pick the Dev channel (you may have to restart Windows in order to switch channels).

      The entire process is outlined in this post at the Windows Insider Blog:

      Microsoft does warn that people who opt into getting Windows 11 Insider builds despite the device not being eligible may experience bugs that will never be fixed, which may mean that those people will be flagged as running an incompatible device when submitting bugs to Microsoft.

      Come here my pretty! In addition if you run in to problems and decide to reinstall Windows by resetting the PC, those devices will be immediately opted out of Windows 11 Insider Preview builds, and will not be able to upgrade to Windows 11. Microsoft notes that these devices will be treated like a new PC and the minimum hardware requirements will be enforced.

      Finally, when Windows 11 becomes generally available, meaning when the final build ships, those PCs will be opted out of flighting and will need to clean install back to Windows 10.

      Google discloses new Rowhammer technique that alters memory contents of newer DRAM chips
      by Usama Jawad

      Image via Samsung Rowhammer is a known vulnerability in DRAM through which multiple access requests to one memory address can allow you to modify the contents of other memory addresses. The breach was first discussed in 2014 and affected the chip that was mainstream at that time, which is DDR3. Google also published a working exploit in 2015.

      Essentially, the vulnerability exists because of electrical coupling phenomenon in silicon chips which bypasses software- and hardware-based protection. To defend against this flaw, many DRAM manufacturers implemented logic in their chips that detected these illegal accesses and then retroactively blocked them. However, even with DDR4 and newer memory chips, Rowhammer can still be exploited through methods like TRRespass.

      Now, Google has disclosed a new Rowhammer technique dubbed "Half-double" which is much more dangerous than the vanilla version. While the latter allowed you to access one adjacent row if you repeatedly accessed one memory address, Google has demonstrated that it can even go beyond this by one more row, although with reduced potency. That said, it has highlighted that it may be possible to access rows which are even farther.

      During it's research, when the company accessed memory address "A" a large number of times, it was not only able to access address "B" dozens of times but also managed to attack address "C". This is demonstrated in the graphic below.

      Image via Google Google went on to say that:

      Overall, the vulnerability is quite significant because it enables a malicious piece of code to escape its sandbox environment and potentially take over the system, in the worst case. As such, Google is working with industry partners such as JEDEC, which is a semiconductor engineering trade organization, to figure out potential solutions. The firm has also published two documents for some mitigations techniques which you can view here and here.

      Google hopes that by disclosing its findings publicly, industry partners and researchers will work together towards a more permanent solution. This is a particularly dangerous exploit which allows software to bypass security policies due to the physics of the hardware, so will require wider collaboration across various industries.
