FileBot: automatic movie and TV show renamer

I have ripped - and downloaded - some of the TV shows that I really like to my PC so that I can watch them whenever I want without having to find the right disc to do so. Most of the TV shows that I own are boxed sets in DVD format, but that is not really the best format in my opinion to enjoy […]

Sort Samsung TV channels on your PC

One of the things that really annoy me is how - even modern - TVs scan and display TV stations on first run. It is usually a big mess with TV stations listed on first come first serve basis and not on a logical sorting order. If you then try to sort the television channels with the remote, you will notice that it is not […]
