Center channel audio on windows 10 is muffled

On my desktop, I use the multichannel outputs of my motherboard (MSI z170a gaming m5) to output 7.1 audio to my receiver, which in turn powers my 7.1 system. I also have it connected via optical cable. I noticed that my center channel audio (whether in games, or movies/tv shows) is muffled when using the multichannel output. This problem does not occur when using the digital output, but I prefer to use analog connections as games that support positional audio (basically everything) can’t do positional audio over the optical cable — only the multichannel surround. The center channel is the only channel I have this issue with, but it is significant. Especially when watching movies, there is a drastic change in clarity between dialogue coming from the center versus playing it in stereo mode and having it come from the R/L fronts.

To troubleshoot, I have tried:

  1. Using a different(identical model) speaker for the center, no luck
  2. Swapping cables from the PC to the receiver
  3. changing any and all Realtek audio manager settings I could find

I cant figure out why this is happening. I am on Windows 10 1903, and my receiver is the Onkyo HT-R340. Any help is much appreciated!

lightning network – I’ve been reading about “loop in” and it seems to be like a one-way offline channel, is that correct?

I would not recommend the notion of a one way offline channel. Historically one way channels could have been build for a long time by offering new signatures for spending an output of a 2-2 wallet to the 2nd party in which more and more btc of the consumed input are given to the 2nd party. The second party naturally has an incentive to publish the latest of such tx.

Loop is more like a submarine swap. With loop in you request to get some balance on a payment channel to your side.

Let us assume you have a payment channel with 0.1 btc capacity but all the money is on your partners side. However you would like to add some funds to your side without rebalancing your channels or opening a new channel.

In order to achieve that you could create an invoice with a payment hash. A person might be willing to pay that invoice on lightning if you reimburse that person on chain. The question that loop solves is to make this process trustless.

You make an onchain btc tx to that person but encumber a second output which goes back to you with a timelock. The output that can be claimed by that person can only be claimed if the preimage of your payment hash is presented. This works directly before the timelock expires.

Now there are two cases. Either the person pays your invoice and receives a preimage and can be sure to get reimbursed. Or if the person does not pay the invoice you can reclaim your btc after the timelock. Noone needs to trust the other side.

What I don’t know is if trezor allows to sign such a timelocked / special transaction and how the trezor api works. However I don’t see any reason why it would not support signing such a transaction.

dnd 5e – If I cast Thunderous Smite and Booming Blade, hit, and use Destructive Wrath to maximize damage, how many uses of Channel Divinity are expended?

How many uses of channel divinity should be expended in the following example?


  • A character is using that a weapon that deals 2d6 thunder damage on a hit.
  • They cast Thunderous Smite, using a bonus action.
  • Then cast Booming Blade (at 5th level), making a melee attack as an action.
  • On a hit, the weapon does an additional 1d8 + 2d6 + 2d6 thunder damage.

Thunderous Smite:

The first time you hit with a melee weapon attack during this spell’s duration, your weapon rings with thunder that is audible within 300 feet of you, and the attack deals an extra 2d6 thunder damage to the target.

Booming Blade:

At 5th level, the melee attack deals an extra 1d8 thunder damage to the target, and the damage the target takes for moving increases to 2d8.

Destructive Wrath:

When you roll lightning or thunder damage, you can use your Channel Divinity to deal maximum damage, instead of rolling.

I’m interpreting this as three separate rolls for thunder damage, each requiring a use of Channel Divinity to maximize. Instead of one use of Channel Divinity to maximize all of them at once.

One of the main reasons I’m thinking this, is because another use of Channel Divinity needs to be expended to maximize the secondary damage from Booming Blade, as it’s a completely separate roll.

magento2 – Amazon Sales Channel extension for Magento 2.3.3

Does the Amazon Sales Channel extension version 4.1 work on Magento 2.3.3? It doesn’t seem to. I installed the extension per the documenation, added the Production API Key from my Magento Marketplace account to the System and when I go to Marketing -> Channels -> Amazon I get the error Unexpected network error, please try again later.

Further inspection in the console shows the error: Error: GraphQL error: Internal server error

And when I click on Add Amazon Store it pops a window saying: Connection error Unable to create a new store. Please try again later.

I’m on Magento 2.3.3 with PHP 7.1.33

channel micropayment – settlement of locked contracts based on time spent in the Lightning network

Suppose that in a payment path A-> B-> C, A wants to pay 0.01 BTC to C. He locks 0.01 BTC with B in the HTLC having an expiration time of 2 days and B locks 0.01 BTC with C in HTLC having an expiration period of 1 day. Now something like that can be done if C delays the revelation of the pre-image, say 1/2 day, then he gets 0.005 BTC and 0.005 BTC is returned to B. Can the contract take care of such dynamic payment settlement based on lost time? In the worst case, if C does not respond, then B returns to 0.1 BTC.
