umm, You have "AwardHHam.com" in the About this community, and google resolves it to "AwardHam.com" It's a small thing, but prehaps you should correct it. feel free to delete this after you correct it.

what's the best way to find, load up and transcode avi's and mkv's to get to mp4? I'd pay someome via paypal if they can come up with a powershell script that uses say ffmpeg to transcode all my videos on my drobo to/from my 2600k based transcoding server that is liquid cooled with 16gb of ram. I know I', not the only one that would fork out some bucks to automate this procedure. fyi, I already rip and transcode TiVo with kmttg so java would be acceptable as well. I'll come up with so seed money for a project such as this...

MCE buddy appears to process all the files I have thrown at it. All the files processed by MCEBuddy I play with no issues with Roku, Chromecast,Smart TV, Smartphones, tablets, and browsers using PLEX. Some MKVs are sometimes reduced by half the size due to the bitrate I have selected (3-4mbps).

I have an original dell venue 8 that appears to be dead. how can I reset this thing to factory stock so I can pass it on to someone else?

When you say dead is it responding at all? If you did not upgrade there is a recovery area set aside for restore. See this article: http://www.dell.com/Support/Article/us/en/04/SLN287188
Also if you made a usb backup you may be able to restore from that.

I might add that I use the 80M version on 20, 30, 40, and 80 with my "upstairs radio," the KX1. 20, 40, and 80 don't require the tuner, with SWRs at 1.5 or below in the entire CW range for each band (40M is 1.1 flat throughout the CW portion). The 30M SWR is a little high at about 1.9, so I tune that to 1.1 with the KX1's tuner. I was using a HB inverted V cut for 40 that I couldn't tune well enough for 20 or 80, so this is a big improvement for me. Also, I absolutely can't see the wire, which is a little disconcerting to me (no HOA out here in the sticks). I am going to toss something over the antenna so i can see the wire at a glance and know it is up. haha.

I was going to say Handbrake is your friend, but then you said "Powershell", which means Windows, which probably means "how much money do you have available again?"

Maybe Handbrake runs on Windows, though, I don't know or care about that since I left it behind.
