Dear G+ crowd, I want to utilise your wisdom again. I'm looking to buy a new AV-receiver as my old one is starting to break down.

I'm hoping to hear from people who have an AV-Receiver they're happy with and matches following requirements:

1) Simple to use. I'm not looking for a professional sound system with million buttons and playback modes blah blah.
2) Need to support 5.1 output (ie. I want to connect my old speakers(5) and subwoofer to it).
3) Need to have reliable HDMI input including CEC. I must be able to plug in a Chromecast to it and keep it turned off and get it to turn on automatically when I turn on my Google Music via Chromecast and jump to the correct HDMI input.
4) Nice to have: an Android app for controlling the device over wifi. I'd love to see a manufacturer that has created an app for Android that followed the design guidelines and doesn't look like a quick iOS port from 2008.

Any idea if a AV-Receiver like that exists? Any recommendations?

+Marius Reichardt Before the A3030 I used a Marantz SR5007. It gave me issues with flaky HDCP handshakes with a number of devices and led to the upgrade purchase. Others here and there seem to have similar issues with Marantz units; apparently they just don't like some TVs and projectors.

You serious??! They offer cash cheats in the Baldur's Gate game. This is just stupid. Why do devs have to ruin this. Too bad my refund period is over...

+Mark Allison If you think $10 is "a premium" for a 30-50 hour content-driven game I don't know what to tell you.

+Juhani Lehtimäki You're assuming that this character or other add-ons in this game give you an inherent, objective edge in gameplay rather than just more playable content or different approaches to the story scenarios. Without showing this both of your numbered assertions and your conclusion are arguing against a straw man. By that argument Starcraft: Brood War was "pay to win" because it meant you could use medics in custom games against the AI.

Yep:
"If the Galaxy S5 existed in a world of its own, it'd look pretty darn impressive. The problem is that the real world isn't so one-dimensional -- and when you start making comparisons, Samsung's "next big thing" looks a lot less grand."

Samsung needs to do something about their strategy.. Then again, I bet this thing will sell like crazy.. sigh

Loving some of the animations in the new Google Camera. It feels pretty nicely polished even when the UI is very bare.

After struggling with trying to figure out how various pieces fit together, I've done some research and put together the complete Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart. This has two parallel lifecycles (activities and fragments) which are organized vertically by time. Lifecycle stages will occur in the vertical order in which they're displayed, across activities and fragments. In this way, you can see how your fragments interact with your activities.

In addition to the attached image, I've also got an SVG: http://staticfree.info/~steve/complete_android_fragment_lifecycle.svg which is suitable for printing.

If this is missing lifecycle steps or is inaccurate in any way, let me know so I can update it!

Tabletop is probably one of the highest quality shows on YouTube. Now, +Wil Wheaton and +Felicia Day are looking into crowd sourcing to get the next season done with the same quality. This is absolutely worth backing!

[EDIT] The developer has chosen to put in cash cheats into this game. I wish I could still get a refund. I advise everyone to avoid purchasing this title. 

I think this is the most I've paid for any app for Android. I'm not sure if this price is justified especially as the expansions are extra. This is a 15 years old game. Still... couldn't resist buying it.

Exactly. Not $60. Ergo, in app extras aren't justified.

I find these new G+ notifications very difficult to parse at glance. I just see a lot of text and need to stop to read to figure out if I need to react to this notification.

Once I realized that only the action was specified and it wasn't a snippet of any actual reply, I am not as annoyed.
I just don't think of my posts by the first line that was written.  Maybe I should be thinking of that when I write a post.  hmmmm

Putting your app's navigation into a tab (instead of a drawer or AB) breaks pretty much every logical way of thinking app navigation possible.

You should avoid this place. My experience was extremely poor ending up costing me one extra year of payments for nothing. The way they handled contract termination left an extremely bad tase in my mouth. Everything is always friendly and smiles until you want to end your contract. Then everything becomes difficult and service turns into unacceptable. Avoid!
