Re: Specsavers Fuengirola

Specsavers, in Spain are a franchise. I think it is the same for the UK ones. However both my wife and I use the one in Fuengirola and have no hesitation in recommending them. They have all the modern equipment and, I believe, know how to use it. Prices lower than any other optician I have found in ...

Re: Samsung J2 Prime smartphone from India bought in Spain

Yes worth doing but that is only a temporary fix as the memory will soon get eaten up when the cache rebuilds.
A SD card gives a permanent increase in storage capacity.

Re: Electricity Cables

LED lights (... and 12v) are designed to run on AC, Being pedantic that is a bit of a dodgy thing to say. I know what you mean as I believe you are also into electronics. LED lights that are designed to run off 12v AC, via a transformer are OK but it is possible, and easy to buy 12V LED lights that...

Re: Samsung J2 Prime smartphone from India bought in Spain

Hi David The fact the phone was made in India doesn't matter, however if it was made for the Indian market it might matter. A 32G memory card should be OK unless she is going to store a large library of photos. Once the SD card is installed photos and Whatsapp messages, videos can be moved to the SD...

Re: Renewing expired ITV

I have found that using the registration date doesn't always work, but using the last 6 digits, select this option n the drop down menu, of my Car's identification Number always works.

I had mine insured with https://www.zalba-caldu.com/
They are the only ones I could find, at the time, who would insure Motor homes here in Spain. Probably some others do.

Interesting.Pity the guide didn't say which smart TVs use Android OS.
A quick Google search indicates that Sony and Philips do.

Re: VPN for BBC iPlayer

But that is installing a VPN on an Android box, which a few of us have done and not as you said "Always use free on tv".
Sorry to be pedantic but there is a big difference.
I don't believe it is possible to install a VPN on a TV but am willing to be proved wrong.

Re: Self build extension

No reason that I know of why you can't do the work yourself provided you feel confident in your own abilities. As long as the town hall give permission and you build according to your approved plans/ specifications then you should be OK. A lot of Spanish builders work looks extremely messy until it ...

Hi Terry
Misread your post. I thought you asked Why and not What.
Sorry
Looking at my "Finca, renovating an old farmhouse in Spain" a ring beam is a zuncho.
