    The future of Turn-On Technology

    Im just curious about this.

    Does this mean that the furture of hardware reviews etc here at Hexus could be done via Hexus Tv.

    So that not only could you read the review in question but you could watch clips of it too? Maybe being tested and installed etc?

    It just needs panning to the dead centre really. I assume what's happening at the moment is that the mic is mono and going into the right channel on the camera, and nobody is correcting it when editing.

    Also get yourself a cheap Paglight, some footage is very dark.

    All in good time We have got Stereo mics happening now, and even better ones on the way

    Re Paglight - Glad I thought of that.... (about 3 months ago)....

    ... As I'm sure you know - we are doing a heap on this - and as we work on it things will be better

    it might be too expensive for assorted licensing reasons, but how about covering things like http://www.videogameslive.com/index.php?story=57 ? there's a lot of fantastic game music out there, but it's nigh on impossible to get ahold of in a sensible form, other than one or two blckbusters, or if you live in japan

    By all accounts, this was supposed to be fantastic if you're into gaming music.

    We did an interview with the composer on HEXUS.gaming(http://gaming.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=6976), but as I understand it was exclusively filmed by some chaps from the U.S. I was promised some free tickets but that didn't materialise.

    I agree, I think this sort of thing would be fantastic to get up on the net. For licensing reasons, there was no chance of being involved in this specific event.

    You can get a feel for it on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVHGy9XEF9I

    i was on a long drive today, and when there wasn't crap on the radio, i was humming some of the fantastic ch00ns from Loco Roco

    i was just thinking "there must be a market for, say, a gaming music radio show - it might even be cheap to do, considering the potential for game sales"
