    Great episode, but I thought I’d let you know (in case you didn’t know already) that there are some audio issues. Most of the main segments are mixed to the left side. Doesn’t seem to effect some segments and the music is fine.

    Hope the FYI helped.

  • Well guys another great episode, it look’s very professional. Can I just say there were too many interviews! It was extremely interesting at the beginning but as the interviews started it got really boring. I hope that it was because it was the first episode of the season and that next episode is more exciting.

    Keep up the great work.

  • Bercik 9 years ago

    I agree with Michael. Interviews were borring.
    However episode was great.

  • I liked it.. didnt love it though. The audio was a lil wacky, the interviews were a little much. and also was it just my screen or was the opening shots and when ever you guys were at the main table it was a little dark for my liking. cant wait for sept 5

  • The xvid doesn’t have any audio for me. I’ve never had problems playing back vids before, so I don’t think anything’s wrong with my codecs.

  • I take back my previous comment about the audio. Apparently, something just got broke in my system, because no vids have audio now. Hopefully a reboot will fix it. :)

  • Hey great show keep it up!

    But I dont use the Auto Shotty I use the pump shotty…….And the Scout…

  • Nice. I have waited for this.
    Have just set up a new mediacenter to my TV. :)

    Hak.5 is just the best.
    Keep up the good work.

    Great show, guys. Like to hear more about HOPE.

    FYI: I could not watch the Xvid feed on my
    Avel Link Player 2 Media Player. All of season 1 shows I could watch via the MediaPlayer device on my big ass HDTV, but this Season 2 Ep 1 won’t play on the unit, so I watch it on my PC. Did you guys change your Xvid encoder?

  • The old saying seems to be true,
    “Everybody’s a critic!”

    Seriously, keep up the good work, guys.
    Enjoyed the show.

  • You guys friggin’ rock! I can’t express how grateful I am for that segment on Synergy. I went right out to sourceforge and got my Ubuntu and Windows pcs working and feeling as one. This is so cool.
    Anyway, love your show, keep it up. I made a post on my site (oriented for Ubuntu n00bs transitioning from Windows) referencing your show and the process for getting it installed in Ubuntu.
    Again, thanks!

  • You guys are a breath of fresh air! You bring a new honest and fresh look for those who do have a TechnoLust!!

    I’ve picked up a lot of new tricks from your shows! I’ve used them to test things that I have inplace and just fun playing around!

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to your future shows!
