Re: Using cover flow for a movie library.

What you're really describing in the first part is setting a custom icon for the file in question, not necessarily a poster image. When you drag from your browser you're dragging over copied pixels of a photo, which does not have an icon set because it's not a saved file. But when you drag from a fi...

Re: DISABLE previews from iCloud downloads?

Are you downloading from the iCloud website? If you're using Safari you might want to disable the "Open safe files after downloading" setting (see screenshot). It sounds like this might be what is causing each file to open? Alternatively simply connect your Mac to your iCloud account in Sy...

Re: Airplay and hi-fi

Sounds like this is not suitable for Tidal's hi-res stream, if that's what you were hoping for: The hi-res audio streams will typically be 96 kHz/24 bit, according to Tidal, as opposed to the 44.1 kHz/16 bit CD-quality streams on the hi-fi tier. This can be activated by going into the 'Settings"...

Re: Airplay and hi-fi

My friend believes AirPlay has quality issues non matter what, and is best avoided. As to your specific question, I was able to find this similar-sounding topic , but using a Marantz receiver rather than your Need device: AirPlay is a proprietary protocol that uses the Apple Lossless codec (at up to...

Re: Clearing Files

These all seem to be file types rather than specific files. I wouldn't recommended deleting whole categories of files all at once. What are you trying to accomplish here? If you're startup disk is running full I'd recommend getting an external drive and backing up personal photos, music and document...

Re: Your favorite apps for Mac

Some users believe in benefits of apps like Mackeeper, but I'm not sure that such apps worth attention, but maybe i wrong. There are no benefits to MacKeeper. It's universally regarded as malware and should never be installed on any Mac. If it is, it should be deleted, which can unfortunately be di...

Re: trying to sync three channels but only two works

Hey there, few questions…

Are all three displays connected to one computer? Or are you using a combination of ArraySync server and ArraySync Client on networked computers?

Can you attach a screenshot of your ArraySync window(s)? Also what codec are these video files using?

Re: Can not activate license - NilObjectException

Sorry about that. Seems you're encountering a known bug on Macs. Please see this blog post for a workaround. Please note the workaround must be done in the global /Library folder, not your user ~/Library folder.

There does not need to be an active Internet connection for this version of ArraySync however future versions will require an occasional connection to stay activated (we're completely changing the serial activation system).

This type of setup typically does not work. You'll need to have both machines on the same network behind a router serving DHCP and UDP.
