Re: remembering passwords

Call me a cynic but I like to keep my passwords locally where I can keep an eye on them. Hence I use passwordsafe, and have done for more years the I care to remember.

Is this the casting functionality built into Windows 10?

Re: Mirror phone to TV

Has the phone got Miracast on it? That will throw onto most smart tv's Samsung, LG, Sony etc, without any additional software or dongles works well enough. Therein lies a problem. Not a simple enough question to find out. She'll want to bring the phone over and I'll have to look through all thebapp...

For sure, but beside it costing her money I will end up owning it for the foreseeable future.

Re: Mirror phone to TV

If she's close by to you why not just download the episodes to a USB stick for her? I used to do that, but then its, download me this, download me that and so on forever. Since streaming seems to work well lately I've pretty much given up downloading stuff. So I figured get her to install ukmovnow ...

So how to mirror the phone to her TV without buying a dongle of somesort? The TV is a shiney new LG 28MT49S, of which I ha...

Re: Speed concerns for HDTV streaming

I think that standard definition is 480, but stand to be corrected. 720p is considered HD and is what BBC, ITV etc provide in their streams., 1080p is even better and also referred to as HD, although personally they look pretty much the same. OpenVPN is VPN client that you can install on your PC, tv...

Re: Speed concerns for HDTV streaming

That looks like the spec of Broadband4Spain. 10mb is way more than enough to watch 720p definition streams along with Dolby sound with no buffering. You may find 1080p is a bit iffy though. Personally I find 720 more than adequate on my 42inch TV. Their UK ip address is a little weird in that you ha...

Re: Cataract operation

Did you have a consultancy with an alternative clinic/ophthalmologist? From my prostate cancer experience Rincon see you as an open wallet from which they extract as much money as possible in as short an amount of time as possible. Also distinctly unimpressed with their facilities. Having learned fr...

Re: Mozailla Firefox

In this day and age it still amazes me that some sites don't work with chrome, but are fine with IE or whatever its called these days. So much for standards.........
