Re: Iphone repairs my opinion.

Off topic yes but I have to say the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 64GB is a spectacular phone for €160 I've had one for a while now. Superb.

Re: Avatel fibre optic and smartdnsproxy conflict

UPDATE Avatel have finally solved the issue,it's a different IP address now and is acceptable to smartdnsproxy Unlike movistar which changes ip address, Avatel fibre maintains the same ip address whenever you reboot the router or have a power cut etc So in the past I never had the need to reactivate...

Avatel fibre optic and smartdnsproxy conflict

Anyone else using Avatel for their fibre optic, and smartdnsproxy too? I have been for just over a year along with smartdnsproxy and have had great fast reliable service until now. I'm now having issues with smartdnsproxy because my ISP is only issuing me with a "data IP address" rather th...

Just a bit further along towards Estepona near the Cancelada cambio de sentido mountain side there's a place near Supersol and the Repsol garage. Repairs to all makes and quick too.

Re: SmartDNSProxy not working

Fair do's, I do remember I had real problems with the Mitrastar one back in 2015, then they changed it to the Askey for me. As you say it appears only the Now box that can't be modified.

Re: SmartDNSProxy not working

I'm no longer with movistar for fibre but what make of Movistar router is it? If I remember correctly the Askey is a cinch and works well with smart DNS but the other make, Mitrastar?, I think isn't so adaptable and needs a second router with the smart DNS settings to work correctly. I'm with Avatel...

Re: High Speed Internet/Fibre Availability

As far as UK TV on Avatel is concerned remember that only BBC1, BBC2 and ITV are in HD, all the others are in blurry SD unfortunately, watchable though for most people. I use IntelSat 907 and a few other systems for my UK TV. Avatel have an 18 month permanency clause, good for making the price stay ...

Re: High Speed Internet/Fibre Availability

So you mean Casares? Try Avatel or Olivenet for fibre optic, you can find details online. Both offer far better deals than movistar, several international call packs and with TV including UK TV built in. I'm down the hill near the taxi rank and Repsol garage at Bahia De Casares. Happy to show you th...

Re: rhd car in spain

Not neccesarily. I have a RHD Shogun on Spanish plates here and the quote was the same for LHD and RHD with Abbeygate (TradeWiseInsurance). The only consideration can be obtaining RHD specific parts here in the event of a repair however.

Re: Avatel broadband & TV.

Yes there is a coax point on the router and coax cable needs to go to the aerial input on the TV, the TV tuner is then used to pick up and store the channels. There is no separate "box" used. When ours was installed they accommodated my needs without hesitation. If there is already TV cabl...

Started back in August, it's to identify authorised taxis and shuttle services, about 50% of our local taxis have been adorned with blue plates so far.

This always happens on here when someone who is quite prepared to pay for a provider for iptv, on a very intuitive and easy to use box like a Mag gets vilified for it. I'm sure the OP would love to clear a shelf for all the different devices remotes leads etc. Not. For many people a Mag ticks their ...
