I AM LOSING MY MIND WITH FUCKING VIDEO TODAY
So, at our cottage, we use sattelite TV. We used to have these decoder boxes from like 2005 and they were breaking and looked hideous, so we decided to replace them.
What nobody thought about beforehand was that two of the three TVs at the cottage are CRTs, and thus would not accept HDMI.
Thankfully, the new decoders have a port labelled "AV". Unthankfully, it's a 3.5mm jack.
I buy a cable that breaks out a 3.5mm TRS jack to two RCAs. I plug it in - one of them is carrying the video, but the other one isn't carrying the sound - so it wouldn't work right.
I go out and I buy another cable - this one a 3.5mm TRRS to 3 RCA. I try and plug all 3 RCA cables into the yellow video port. none of them are carrying the video.
I try and plug all 3 cables into the mono audio in (white) port. None of them are carrying the sound.
WHAT IN THE UNHOLY FUCK IS THE PINOUT ON THIS THING?
WHAT BLAHAJ FORSAKEN CABLE ARE YOU EXPECTING ME TO PLUG IN?
can someone please tag the instance owner for me because i genuinely forgot who they were and and don't know how to check
I want it thank them for the great addition of Konqi drip on the mobile post page that gets entirely hidden by my keyboard, but gets shown for just a second when I press the post button but before the site actually updates
I love it.
I was just informed Greece, Turkey, Kuwait, Albania, Romania, Serbia, Egypt, Cyprus, Ukraine, Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Iraq, Macedonia exist (all former Bulgarian territories)
Fuck it, time to post dumb shit about the Nintendo 3DS
The 3DS's internal storage (aka the NAND) is divided into several partitions. One of these partitions is the TWLNAND, which is the part of the NAND that's used for DSi backwards compatibility (TWiLight was the DSi's codename)
The TWLNAND is a FAT16 partition. Inside it is a folder called "shared2", containing only a single 2MB file called "0000". This is a FAT12 image, and it's used for storing recodings saved on the system memory from the Nintendo 3DS Sound app.
If the "0000" file is deleted, the system will automatically recreate it on boot.
If the shared2 folder is deleted, however, the system will crash on boot. Recreating the folder, will allow the system to boot again
What's more confusing is that if the TWLNAND is missing entirely (for example, if it's become invalid due to using an old 3DS NAND header on a new 3DS), the system will boot properly. The issue only occurs when TWLNAND exists but does not contain shared2
