The ultimate guide on updating streaming settings
Tired of looking at the same streaming settings without changes for a long year? You may have to upgrade to a projector, or you may have to adjust the seating arrangement to actually get into the game. No matter which choice you make, please take stock of your budget and read the following tips to get the final home streaming settings:
Choose the right player
The beginner logs into its streaming service on the computer (or worse, the phone). However, real professionals know that they need a dedicated streaming media player. In order to get the best user experience, the first thing to consider is what it will be used for: live TV and on-demand streaming. I am interested in humble smart TV applications or large-scale services. If you have other smart home devices, it may be worth working with the same manufacturer to get the seamless connection experience possible. Budget is also a factor, as you can only spend $35 or $200 to start streaming. Such a consumer guide can help you narrow down, so you can not only buy things from friends.
Get the strongest signal
The first question you want to ask is: "Am I paying for the Internet speed I want to pay?" To find out, please use a website like SpeedTest on a WiFi-connected device near a streaming service. If your download speed is much lower than the speed listed in the Internet plan, it may be time to call your ISP and ask some tricky questions. It is helpful to know the meaning of these numbers. For reference, it is recommended to successfully transmit HD video at a speed of 5 megabits per second.
If you see the correct number, it may be due to other factors that are causing slow streaming. Try to establish a continuous line of sight between the router and the streaming media device to ensure that it is not blocked by WiFi Jammer. Limit other downloads and uploads while watching, as this may consume your bandwidth. If your router provides a 5 GHz connection, use this channel because it can provide a stronger signal. The last option: make sure that your WiFi does not have any free downloads. The easiest way is to change your network password. However, if you feel revenge, you can use more aggressive options to start the device.
You may have the most advanced WiFi setup in the world with enough antennas to make it look like a radar system, but it still cannot compare to wired Ethernet. If you can plug the streaming system directly into the modem, you can receive data at a faster speed, usually at least 10 times the speed. (For its value, you can get a 50-foot Ethernet cable for less than $20.) If the wiring does not fit your layout, please introduce a mesh network system instead of consideration. These traditional WiFi alternatives work like multiple routers and can provide you with a larger signal range.
Choose the right surround sound for your budget
The home media budget is mixed in the speaker system. However, when you are ready to spend money, your streaming settings will switch from "decent" to "theatre quality." Critics like the design and sound quality of the Bose Acoustimass surround sound system, but the price is about $1,000. For a system that only costs half the price, consider using the Vizio soundbar system-although the effect is not so good, but it is very impressive. For the truly affordable option or only suitable for smaller spaces, most miniature sound bars cost about $40, which is still better than TV speakers in terms of quality.
Switch to projector
No matter what settings you make, switching to a projector will bring you a bigger picture and a more immersive experience. (Unless you are already rocking an 88-inch 8K curved TV. In this case, we don't need our help.) The settings of the projector are very detailed. Therefore, find the space that suits you best. Modern short-range projectors are usually expensive, but can achieve a screen size of 120 inches within a projection distance of a few feet. One thing to remember: take up extra time (and money) on the installation system. Without proper focus and spacing, even expensive projectors can produce poor images. If you are not in the middle, you must use a viewing angle correction that will affect the quality.
Get extra convenience
When you feel comfortable at the end of the day, your streaming night will be paused or interrupted. Blankets and pillows are given, but please make sure you have enough budget to accommodate an upgraded seat, such as a soy bag or a sofa bed with power outlets and storage space. No matter what you choose, get bigger-with such a good streaming setup, everyone will want to come (of course, if it's safe!).
