Online Hookup Sites – Our Dedication to You
On average, a single TB will hold 30 full-res Blu-ray titles minus their special features and menus , with the average file size of each falling between 25 and 40GB. In comparison to my previous media serving system built on an Apple platform, the file sizes are roughly 12 times larger than their iTunes-compatible.
Prior to do this you should, at least with movies, have all your films individually labeled and placed within their own folders of the same name. MKV file would then be re-named Battlechip. That folder would then be placed in a master folder labeled, for instance, movies. Doing this type of file management will speed up the import process and keep things clean, assuming you have an existing library, of course. If you're starting from scratch, you can simply tell JRiver where you want it to rip and save your files, and it will carry out the task s automatically.
Admittedly, I'm a bit of a control freak, so I actually prefer to rip my movies first and then import them into JRiver later. Yes, I know this adds a step or two to the process, but it's how I prefer to do it, at least with movies, DVD, Blu-ray or other video content. Once you've pointed JRiver in the right direction, it will begin to do its thing, which has as much to do with your network speed as it does your Internet connection, for while JRiver is importing files from your NAS drive s , it's also finding the corresponding data for each file on the Internet.
Depending on the size of your library, this process can take anywhere from mere seconds to several hours, and it's best to let it finish before proceeding. When finished, you'll notice two things right away: Seriously, if you've been a user of iTunes since Day One, the default or Standard View of JRiver will seem second nature, right down to the color scheme. The Standard View is all about functionality and, in my opinion, ideal for those using JRiver on a desktop setup, as I do in my office.
There are, however, other views, all of them customizable, that can be saved and retrieved or used exclusively, depending on how you choose to set things up. You can even re-skin views, meaning change color palettes, backgrounds, etc.
It's also a lot of fun to play around with and a way for JRiver users to interact, for once you've created a look, you can share it with friends or other JRiver customers. From there, you can configure a barrage of different settings, ranging from upsampling to channel levels, parametric EQ, headphone crossfeed, room correction and more.
Again, there is so much functionality packed into JRiver that it would take me the better part of a year to dive into and write up everything with equal focus. I've owned JRiver now for six months and I'm still discovering things about it that I didn't know the day before. It's proving to be as much fun to play with as it is to use.
In terms of control, you have several options, ranging from ho-hum to, "Your friends will think you're rich. For those considering JRiver as the front end of a two-channel system, especially if you like Sooloos, may I suggest picking up a new all-in-one PC with a touch-screen for a couple hundred bucks and using JRiver that way.
The control or remote in this setup would be the screen and your finger, which is a lot like Sooloos, if I'm being honest, only your setup would most likely cost less than an Oppo player would, let alone tens of thousands. You could even use the remote in conjunction with having a touch-screen PC if you so desire. My chosen means of control rests with the JRiver app. The JRiver app, or Gizmo as it's called don't ask me why , gives you full control over JRiver, including cover flow for both music and movies on your smart phone or tablet, provided both are connected to your home's wireless network.
The app even lets you stream your content to your handheld device, as opposed to viewing it on your computer or HDTV screen - very cool. The app works via a unique key, so it's possible to sync it to multiple JRiver clients or JRiver-equipped PCs for a whole home control solution. Did I mention it's free?
Oh, and it's only for Android-equipped devices - sorry, Apple users. All electronics were connected via Monoprice cabling. Performance This performance section is going to be a bit different than what I'm used to writing, since much of what JRiver does is allow you to surf, catalogue and stream your network-stored media.
It does have some playback options and features, which I'll discuss, but given the space that I have to devote to this single review, there are going to be some features that go unmentioned - my apologies in advance.
Disagree with our product rating? Drawing on a survey of over students from 26 institutions, as well as in-depth interviews, Jason King argues that religious culture on Catholic campuses can, in fact, have an impact on the school's hookup culture, but when it comes to how that relationship works: In Faith with Benefits , King shows the complex way these dynamics play out at Catholic colleges and universities.
There is no straightforward relationship between orthodoxy and hookup culture--some of the schools with the weakest Catholic identities also have weaker hookup cultures.
And not all students define the culture in the same way. Some see a hookup as just a casual encounter, where others see it as a gateway to a relationship. Faith with Benefits gives voice to students, revealing how their faith, the faith of their friends, and the institutional structures of their campus give rise to different hookup cultures.
In doing so, King addresses the questions of students who don't know where to turn for practical guidance on how to navigate ever-shifting campus cultures, reconciling their faith with their relationships.
Students, parents, faculty, administrators-indeed, anyone who cares about Catholic teenagers and young adults-will find much of value in this book. Read more Read less.

Review "[S]hould be the go-to book for those involved in undergraduate student life in Catholic higher education. In particular, King makes many recommendations for people that work for Catholic colleges and who want to provide students with an alternative to the hookup culture.
Jason King provides a complex, sympathetic, but unflinching account of the coercive effects of hook-up culture and the many ways students negotiate it. King is an engaging writer, attentive to the complexities of Catholic subcultures, and well-placed to offer a way forward for the majority of students who seek alternatives to the prevailing norm.
