Update BIOS motherboard ASUS Zenith Extreme x399

This time we show what to expect when updating your UEFI BIOS of your ASUS Zenith Extreme (chipset x399) – a pretty good and performance setup! Here we update the UEFI BIOS from the BIOS itself – in fact, no OS is needed! This motherboard has a built-on utility called

Asus EZ Flash 3 Utility

which is started from the BIOS and it could read your NTFS or FAT filesystem to locate the update firmware file or the easy way to get connected to the Internet, check, download and install the update if any!
So here some screenshots to how to perform the update from 1003 to 1402 – it is easy and safe just couple of reboots needed – total of 4 (but in your case may vary).

STEP 1) Press DEL or F2 to enter your UEFI BIOS

HDML-Cloner Box Pro trims display output – aspect ratio problem

The Cloner Alliance HDML-Cloner Box Pro is a cool little box, which allows you to record video output from multiple devices such as PC, TV, set-top box, it could have two simultaneous input streams and it supports HDMI, VGA, MMI (Multimedia Video Interface with HDMI). It has a remote controller with even a button of making only screenshots of the video input!

It happens really rare, but the device could have problems with auto detecting the right aspect ratio (or/and resolution) and it trims several lines of the display output from the forth directions of the display as shown bellow:

Display problem – display output trimmed.

And even you try all the options in the Remote Controller of aspect ration 16:9, 4:3 and PC (even Auto is not correct) or try to change the source (probably to rescan the source – HDMI, VGA, AV, YPbPr) nothing will help to prevent this problem of trimming some pixels’ lines in each direction!

But the device has more options than those in the “Remote Controller”

In such situations you should use

“Just Scan” aspect ratio

You could see them by clicking the settings button or by using the HDML-Cloner Pro Helper
