Not saying it's better or worse: Amazon Fire TV or Fire Stick. Go with the Fire TV if it would be possible to use a wired ethernet connection instead of wifi.
You do not need a Prime account to use the apps, and it comes with all the usual services like Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc.
Like all the other boxes, local network streaming is the problem. I don't like Plex as it requires a subscription and is not free. Miracast does not actually work from Windows with the Amazon products. But there are back-door installation methods to put other apps on. Kodi media player is one option for streaming local stuff. I find Kodi is not so good anymore and use SPMC (a fork of Kodi) instead. It will catalog and play all video and music files that are shared to the network and visible to a scan. Google up installing Aptoide for Fire TV and you will have your way to install "unsupported" apps.

Chromecast is probably the simplest solution. $35 for 1080p, $55 for 4k. For streaming stuff from your pc you can use plex, emby, or (I believe) the vlc app.

Ham Radio community
Would anyone else be interested in a Ham/Amature radio community? Radios are generally expensive and any discount I think would attract plenty of operators. I know a few who already frequent audiophile for good headsets.

Good gaming screen 144+ hz ?
I’d like to know if any of you guys knew a good gaming screen (144 hz or more) which would be not too expensive. I don’t have a specific budget but below 200 € seems a reasonable limit to me. I have a gaming pc that can handle 160 fps but my screen allows me only 80 fps so that is very unfortunate and it’s the reason of my change Don’t hesitate to ask me for more details Thanks !
