How to Apply For Certificate of Good Conduct (Malaysia)

Basically , you want to migrate/study/work overseas. You realize that one of the requirement is to have a Certificate of Good Conduct (Sijil Kelakuan Baik). It’s basically a certificate to tell you that you are a good person (no past criminal records). This is needed when you apply for overseas visa. In this blog post , I would share the step-by-step guide on how to apply for it

 

If you have searched the Internet , there are tons of articles (a bit out-dated) that says you can get it within few days/weeks in Malaysia. However things have changed and now it takes about a month to process. Here I’ll share what you need in order to get it all started as I’ve done all the digging and hardwork for you . I would like to thank the bigkiwicandy blog and their readers for the information

EDID Override for HDTV to Solve Passthrough

Recently I bought a new SAMSUNG 5-Series LED TV. It’s great in sense that it has a SPDIF/Out (compared to my old Panasonic HDTV) , it’s mcuh more lighter and it’s a SmartTV.

As you do know that I use HTPC to play back videos from the internet and all and currently the configuration is setup as Video to HDMI and Audio via SPDIF/out to my Amplifier. The reason for this setup is being that my previous HDTV did not have any Digital Out. But this current Television does support it.
So I’ve decided to connect the Toslink cable from my HTPC to my TV instead so that my HDTV can make use of the amplifier , thus making it easier for any devices to output 5.1 surroundsound. Unforutantely , this setup did not work very well with my PC.
The reason being is that moment I plugged in my HDMI Cable , Windows did detect it’s a HDTV and only offered 2.1 Audio. It did not offer Dolby Digital/DTS pass-through which means that if I play back a Dolby Digital 5.1 , it would not output correctly to my Surround. Of course other systems like xbox , STB are able to do this correctly moment you set the correct output
However in Windows (and with NVIDIA) it was not possible to bypass this. It would read EDID information from the TV. Thankfully there is a method which allows you to bypass that. This person has written a guide on how to do that , step-by-step instructions on how to do it
It works great with NVIDIA Cards a well , it’s just that after you have done the configuration you may have to re-install NVIDIA Drivers to correctly detect your Audio output 🙂
