    I love watching linus and his husband working on their new house

  • EposVox

    HDMI Matrix boxes are cheaper than giant receivers for those watching at home! I am confused how you expect controllers to reach.

    Cant belive linus made a workaround so expensive and complicated that actually made me go like "maybe streaming is a better solution here"

    I love that the house project has an incredibly high complexity and cost factor that is completely justified because it can be used for content.

    Linus: I don’t wanna spend another 1000 on two more Xbox. I wanna spend $6000 on a cool tech gadget that… means that even though the Xbox is in three rooms only one person can be on it at a time…

  • Alzorath

    As a retro nerd, my brain immediately went, "why not make under the stairs a gaming hub for all the consoles so you can swap discs?" - before I reminded myself most modern systems are mostly digital media lol.

  • unchartedchartz

    linus is on a quest to make sure that the technology in his house is as hard to use as possible

    At the end of the day, despite all his accomplishments and years spent studying tech of all kinds Linus is just like the rest of us; spending an entire afternoon to make his TV and AV boxes work

    I looked in to an option like this, so I could let people play xbox in any room - but then I realised my kids just fight like mad over "whose turn it is" so this doesn't actually solve my real problem (fighting kids).

    I have a feeling the controller reach is going to be an issue. They will “work” but controls will be laggy or intermittent and it just takes one missed turn in Mario kart for it to all go very wrong

    Watching Linus' house videos makes my brain turn to liquid but I love it. I want a full on tour when its done. Like 6 hours video explaining it all

    Linus: I don't want to waste money buying duplicates of each console

  • The_Jerbearz

    This is a great video because this is actually what I do for a living and it made me realize I'm actually good at my job

  • BlackBackLP

    I would recommend to look into Pro AV Equipment (for example avproedge AC-MX-42x). Much easier, supports 4 4K120 inputs and two outputs and can be controlled via RS232 and Ethernet AND is MUCH cheaper than the receiver. I can imagine that bigger Matrix Switchers might get available soon.

  • persona2grata

    When you're spending $5k on receivers, this seems like a lot of work to avoid buying another Xbox or two. Am I missing something?

    You can do a ton of stuff with VoiceMeeter, you can send audio via the network, or do custom macros for your audio. There also are versions with lots of available ports. Watch out for multi channel audio though, it works but can be tricky to setup properly

  • RKcuddles

    I like how instead of a laptop, y’all have an open fragile test bench sitting there totally vulnerable to Linus’ madness

    "I need a $6000 stereo receiver, and a soundbar for my TV" - said nobody in their right mind ever!
