Re: tv

Don't think you'd get a really good sound system for a meagre grand. My speakers alone cost almost that... True, but is your hearing up to it? Most people have lost their ability to hear high frequency sounds after the age of 50. Just buying expensive speakers won’t improve that. Fact of life unfor...

Re: tv

Your "expert" is right if he was referring to a non HD TV. Has anyone still got one of those? With HD and UHD the distance would be much closer. I will reiterate that these are "optimum" measurements to get the best, most immersive viewing experience. Sid We have a lowly HD tv. ...

Re: Overheating laptop

Wild guess, maybe linux simply doesnt have the code to monitor temperature.

Re: Salud Responde

I meant the later version once it is installed :-)

Maybe they had a bucnh of release candidates that didn't make it out of the door. Don't see much change between 3.x and 4.x anyway...

Re: Salud Responde

There often isn't any obvious logic behind version numbers, other than they increase with each release :-) Normally the first number represents a major version number, the following dotted numbers are minor releases or bugfix releases.

Does the app run at all after you have installed it?

Re: Salud Responde

I had an eye problem. not urgent. Was referred to Costa del Sol hospital by GP. After a few weeks I had not heard anything. Living only a few minutes drive away I called at hospital to enquire. Was told I would be 6 months or more just to see a Consultant. GPs in Sussex have two clinics now. Always...

Re: Salud Responde

The wait in Basingstoke is so long that my daughter has no option than to take emergency appointments when the kids need to see a GP. Whereas here in Sayalonga I can normally get an appointment next day on the occasions we need to see a doctor. Take this week. My wife is experiencing vision problems...

I did have an occasion in the past where it stopped working. Uninstall/reinstall and all was good again.

Just checked my phone is 7.0

Thanks Wicksey. Doesn't appear that they work with any of the mainstream insurers..

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

Normally clinics have a list of insurance companies that they work with on their website. Far easier than trying to navigate DKVs website. In this instance as i said didn't see any such list.

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

Do these folks deal with insurance companies. Could see anything from a quick peruse of their website. Fed up with Clinica Rincon and looking for an alternative.

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

It's normally more than that, 107euros pa, Our Smart is 15euros pa which I would have thought costs more to process. The Merc was matriculated in Aug so I guess that it was only part year road tax.

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

Thought I'd have this on my PC email archives. This was 10 years ago to put my Merc 4x4 onto Spanish plates. Needed the Engineers inspection report as I didn't have an eu certificate of conformance. Which BTW would have cost more to get from Mercedes than the engineers report. Matriculation tax 1785...

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

Can't remember the cost exactly as it was 10 years ago. Definately well under 1000euros tho. Wheras to buy the same car, but a spanish one would have cost many thousands more..

No import duty it was considered personal chattels as we had owned the car for more than 6 months prior to moving over.

Freeview

Haven't seen it mentioned on here yet. The Android version of the Freeview app is now available on playstore. Only installed it last night so haven't had an extensive play yet, but what I have tried to view so far seems to work. Only issue I've come across as yet is moving around the EPG on a TV box...
