I didn't even know that was possible to do on other apps. Oh well, kids are supposed to watch movies that their parents told them not too.

I can't imagine there being anything on Disney+ that you wouldn't allow a kid to watch. At least not a kid who is old enough to be able to login and navigate their own profile.

Childless and happy here, but I imagine that changing profiles on a streaming app these days is the province of a kindergartner. I mean, I'm not eddy here terrorizing my younglings by forcing them to watch Alien for 'family movie night' or anything, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

It's parenting tif, nobody knows what they are really doing, that's why Bloodsport is up for family movie night next week.

As far as content on D+, only thing I could think of that would be questionable to some might be Adventures in Babysitting?

The absolute most annoying thing about D+ is when you view all movies, unavailable movies are mixed in with the current lineup. And they're indistinguishable until you click on them to view more details. I got really excited to watch D2 only to see that it isn't coming to the service until **** 2021. Adventures in Babysitting is another 2021 movie that's listed. Either make a separate "Coming Soon" section or remove that **** entirely. There are way too many coming soon movies and all it does is piss me off.

Recommendation for home WiFi? This is what the Spectrum guy suggested:
MeshForce Whole Home Mesh WiFi System M3 Suite (1 WiFi Point + 2 WiFi Dot) - Dual Band WiFi System Router Replacement and Wall Plug Extender - High Performance Wireless Coverage for 5+ Bedrooms Home

How large is the house? I still recommend ASUS hardware. My AC1900 (RT-AC68U) covers my entire 2500sf house from the unfinished basement up, including halfway down my street. If you really need multiple APs, you can add a second ASUS device and enable their AiMesh system.

Last night I noticed D+ no longer had HDR available on my Android TV. It was on there the day before. I switched to the Roku and HDR showed up there. Weird.

Disney wasn’t hacked. These people use the same password for everything and their info was leaked/hacked somewhere else. Disney+ could use two factor though. That would solve it.

Recommendations for an HDMI cord that will allow me to plug my Samsung Galaxy 7S into my TV for streaming purposes.

I don't know much about Samsung phones, but wouldn't casting be a better option?

What about something like this?

I have an iPhone and use their version of this for streaming some things.

Yeah, that adapter paired with an Amazon HDMI cable and you should be good.



I'd look into whether or not you could cast the video before going the hardwired route, though. Hell, I'd buy a Chromecast and hook it up to my TV before going the adapter route, too.

I recently bought a refurbished computer off Amazon and this thing is awesome. I'm never buying a new computer again.

Forgot I posted this. My house is about 2500 sf as well. Thanks
