Asrock Q1900B-ITX change color space

Hi guys, Long story short, I recently switched from a Dell laptop that uses DisplayPort to Asrock Q1900B-ITX and I am having a problem with the Asrock's color tone (Black levels are bad, green and blue are too artificial etc). I am trying to switch the color space from srgb to ycbcr but the option i...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

It's an ASRock J1900 board. I don't do Bluray, however, I found some 1920 testfiles on the web, one with a bitrate of 8000 kBit/s (mp4), the other with 31000 kBit/s (MT2S). Both did not tax the CPU significantly (some 6% extra for win mplayer, the load for splashtop stayed the same), but the movie ...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

Apparently if HW mode is not supported it would consume around 40% of CPU even in idle. Tried splashtop out for you: It depends on the resolution. At 600x800 the splashtop process takes 10-14% CPU power, at 1920x1080 it consumes 30-34%. Only if accessed, otherwise it idles in the background. Thanks...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

hey guys, just wondering if any of you use Splashtop or Chrome Remote Desktop to access the Bay Trail box. As far as I know both these apps have hardware acceleration on certain graphic cards but I am not sure if Intel HD graphic is one of them. Does anyone know what the CPU usage is like? Apparentl...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

What kind of laptop?? Is that running 24/7 and do you find it gets hot?? Ta J Acer E1-571G with i3-3110m and GT620M. To minimized the power draw I disabled the dedicated GFX, replaced HDD with an SSD and unplugged the optical drive. It's running about 12 hrs a day and never gets hot or loud unless ...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

Some power consumption stats: - idle in WIN8, WD harddisk in spindown: 15.5W AC, which is about 7.5W DC. [verified by efficiency measurement of PSU] - idle in WIN8, WD harddisk spinning but heads retracted: 18.5W AC - idle in WIN8, WD harddisk active: 22W AC I am surprised that it draws that much p...

Re: Bay-trail motherboards

I am eyeing on the Asrock Q1900DC as well but I wonder how I can power my harddrive without an ATX psu?
