Playstation 3 Error Code 80710736

You get this error when trying to download updates, games or media. I got it when trying to update my trophy info after doing a system restore. It is to do with your network.

Some people as a temporary fix download the updates on their pc to a memory stick and transfer like that. I fixed the error on mine by doing this:

Go to network settings -> Media Server -> Off

That should work for most, others may require an update of firmware on the ps3 or router or both!

How To Split My Computer Display To TV Screen and New Monitor

I’ve recently been asked this question:
Just wanted a bit of advice really, looking to buy a new hd tv and have just noticed you can get a tv/monitor combo, i have had a little look into the split screen and how it works, but don’t know a lot about it. I’ve found a monitor i like, i want a tv with freeview, but something i can still plug my xbox into, any idea if i could run dual monitors through my pc while easily changing to a tv when need be….

Here is my response:
Hello, there are many ways to connect your pc to your tv and use it as a “dual monitor”. Probably the most common way is to use an s-video output from your pc to your tv. You need to see what video output your pc or graphics card has first of all. Probably has a VGA output (the blue one you plug your monitor into) and maybe a DVI output (the white weird looking one). S-video outputs are small roundish sockets.

The TV you linked has a few ways to interface:
Interfaces: 1 x VGA – 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) ¦ 1 x HDMI – 19 pin HDMI Type A ¦ 1 x component video input ¦ 2 x SCART – 21 pin SCART ¦ 1 x DVI-D – 24 pin digital DVI

Your job is to get a cable that will link that tv to your pc! I use ebay as it is nice and cheap. I see it has a DVI interface so you could use DVI to DVI cable if you pc also has a DVI port. You also have a VGA port on the TV so could use VGA to VGA cable or you can even get a DVI to VGA cable depending what your pc has.

I’m not sure what the xbox has port wise as i’m a ps3 guy but I assume it has a HDMI port, the HDMI port on the TV will probably be the best way to link your xbox up to it but means you will need to buy another cable from ebay if your xbox didn’t come with one.

Once your have the two machines connected in any of the ways above the actual process of making them work as a dual monitor is normally the easy bit. With newer versions of windows/graphics cards it may autodetect, Otherwise you just need to find your monitor options and switch it into dual monitor mode.

I have run many dual monitors using most of the above methods and it takes some messing about sometimes but its a good thing to do if your up to the job! Hope this helps and let me know if you need anymore info.

Update Your PC NOW!

Right you have all seen it, the little icon that appears in the right saying new updates are available. Do yourself a favour and download/install them as soon as u can, specially today:

Microsoft has released a fix for a hole in Internet Explorer that was the weak link in a “sophisticated and targeted” cyber attack on Google.

Microsoft recommends that customers install the update as soon as possible or update to the latest version of the web browser for “improved security”.

Microsoft normally issues patches monthly but the high-profile nature of the attacks led it to act more quickly.

I know a few people suffering a virus due to the fact they hate updating their pc. Trust me, a few minutes of downloading and a restart is nothing compared to dealing with a virus so make sure you all keep up to date. If you need more info or help then please give me a shout.

Assassin’s Creed II “synapses” Glyph Question

6 = Three trees (1s)
0 = One delta (5s) and Seven trees
3 = Three deltas and One tree

Heres how it is worked out for those who like to know:
the numbers on the left picture represents the difference on the numbers on the wheel starting at the 1 (tree symbol). tree + 2 + 6 + 2 + 1 + 5 + 3 + 5 + 6 + 4
so the numbers on the wheel is:
1
1 + 2 = 3
3 + 6 = 9
9 + 2 = 11
11 + 1 = 12
12 + 5 = 17
17 + 3 = 20
20 + 5 = 25
25 + 6 = 31
31 + 4 = 35

now the symbols on the wheel all corresponds to these numbers if you translate them into normal numbers. Trees represent 1:s and the deltas are 10:s
the missing numbers are 17 and 31.

the right picture shows a 5 and a tree which means turn the wheel so the 5 and 1 (tree) are the same.
that gives you the solution of:
6 = 3
0 = 17
3 = 31

The Difference between GPS and GPRS

I recently got asked what the difference is between GPS and GPRS. Surely they sound pretty similar so must do similar things? WRONG! See below:

GPS means Global Positioning System. This is a system comprising 24 satellites positioned up in space around the world. Due to the position of those satellites, it became possible to assign an address to every meter of the surface of the earth, including those over the ocean.

GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Services. This is a way of sending data through radio waves that are currently being used to transmit voice. The data in digital form is sent out in packets, or in mini-bursts that are decoded by the receiving unit, which can be a GPRS-enabled handset.

Summary: GPS is a positioning system aimed at helping you find your location on the face of the planet, whereas GPRS is a radio service that is used to send data wirelessly.
