Re: Best Android or other TV service box

I only have one account with Amazon and it works with both the Spanish and UK Prime and on both Spanish and UK sites for purchases. Both addresses are the same Spanish one but the payment details are different. If you are having problems accessing UK apps on your Fire stick,then you have it set up ...

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

Confused as you say you have your DNS installed on your router why you would have a VPN installed on your LG TV, even more confusing as I was under the impression that you CANNOT install a VPN directly on to an LG TV? Can you explain how you achieved this? Simple really. I have 2 routers, one with ...

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

My firestick is registered with Amazon UK, as are my kindles. I suspect that my Spanish prime subscription is just that, Spanish, so my UK registered firestick can't use it. Likewise if I shop with Amazon.co.uk then my prime subscription doesn't show. I really only bought the firestick as a backup f...

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

Long time since I looked at firesticks on the .es site. So happy to be corrected if it is now available.

Mine, which was a uk purchase a couple of years ago still don't work tho', unless I use the Prime Video app.

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

Then surely the prime video app wouldn't work either.. I think that its likely that this is a result of the fire stick not bring officially available in Spain. Should try it over VPN I suppose, and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

Not sure that is absolutely true. I have a firestick. Logged into my UK Amazon account, and I have DNS redirection on my router, which is working just fine. I sort of accidentally enabled the prime trial while purchasing something on the Spanish amazon site. If I use the Prime app on my android box ...

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.
