Re: Terrarium tv alternative?

May be so, but according to their website Morpheus is now dead. Must admit that although having mobdro installed I use it rarely, kind of fourth line backup. I'm using tvplayer mostly, working very well for terrestrial channels. No pirate sport channels on there, which for me isn't an issue as I hav...

Re: Android tv box recommendations

apologies should have said that raccoon is a windows program.. Get it from here https://raccoon.onyxbits.de/ Have used it in the past successfully, but not had much need since I installed the T95Z. Create a secondary play account for use with raccoon rather than use your usual account. There is a me...

Re: Android tv box recommendations

I've been using a T95Z Plus android box for the last year or so. I've had a few others and this is the best one so far. Have BBC, ITV, All4, tvplayer etc installed from the playstore without issue. The only app so far that wouldn't install this way is netflix. Not a problem as I downloaded it and in...

Re: Rodents

Happened to me a couple of times. Firstime a rat got shut inside the car. Made it's way along a wiring conduit till it reached under the fuse box, and absolutely decimated all the cabling. Had it grua'd to Simon in Velez who did a magnificent job of figuring out the mess and restoring it all to work...

Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

'cos crushing cars is fun... Carpark was busy last night, more packed than I have ever seen it, in fact we had to go up to level 3 to find a space. Wierd since the terminal was pretty much deserted. I'd reckon that folks parked there and caught a cab to the fair ground for fun and games. Probably a ...

Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

Went to the airport to pick up my daughter and grandkids last night. Arrived around midnight and there were dozens of cars parked along the approach road to the car park. Plus of course there are loads of people milling around in the road loading cases and people into these cars . There were so many...

Re: ITV, Algarrobo

I did read somewhere that it had recently changed and you can get up to 1 month added. To be honest I didn't look at the sticker that closely to check the new expiry date. As I mentioned August is the worst month for the Merc to be ITV'd as it is the only time that I really have to have the big car ...

Re: ITV, Algarrobo

Tried to book an ITV test at Algarrobo yesterday, two weeks ahead of the due date of 25 August. Was surprised that the first available date was 5 September, and that all of August was 'greyed out' as unavailable. Holidays? Training? Refurb? or just Busy? Mine runs out in August and I had the same p...

Re: UK State pension calculation

Me also, 1955 was a good year, however I have lost out on 'only' 1 year. My wife, born in 1957 on the other hand loses out on 6 years and she would have been in receipt of a pension for the last 18 months... Keep an eye on the WASPIs, you never know something may happen in our favour.

Re: UK State pension calculation

Just done my own calculation and the changes in payment age have cost me and my wife the best part of £60,000 in lost payments now that we both have to wait until we are 66. Thoroughly pi55ed off.

Re: Solar heat swimming pool

Most pools here get so hot without any help that heating is not usual. Cooling it down in August might be more useful. Ours gets to 28c pretty quickly (which we find perfect) and 30c is possible but that is getting too hot. Solar bubble covers do work and will raise the temperature significantly. T...

Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

Where are the walkways? I went out and across the road and walked alongside the old terminal T2. The whole carparking arrangement still seems to be work in progress. Hopefully I won't need to do anymore drop-offs/collections for some considerable time. Must admit that I don't use the walkways at al...

Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

Bit annoying that as if you stay a little more than 15 minutes you also have to pay for the free 15 minutes. Found that out when I dropped my missus off and figured that I would be getting close, possibly slightly overrunning the free 15 minutes. In the other car park, after you enter it at ground l...

Re: SmartyDNS alternative

I've used smartdnsproxy for a couple of years now and for me it works like a charm. Cheap as chips and on the odd occasion that I have needed it support has been excellent.

Re: Eurona satellite option

Does anyone offer wireless internet up your way? Here, we get 15Mb down and 5Mb up, for €35+iva per month. Unlimited data. IPTV just needs 4Mb down to avoid buffering. Not quite true as it depends whether you want SD, HD, 1080, 4k etc. 4Mb is more than sufficient for SD. However jitter and latency ...
