Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

The poster asked if anyone had experience of the Venz Android Box, which so far nobody seems to have, all Mark Wilding did in the spirit of the forum was suggest an Alternative and expressed the positives of the Firestick and on the subject of the excellent remote I happened to agree with him..........

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

Yes completely agree Mark the Fire Remote is so user friendly in every way and makes everything very simple. Having used all combinations over the years if you set a benchmark for "user friendliness" at 10 I would give Firestick a 9+ a wireless mouse and keypad a 4 and an airmouse a 3.

Re: Tahini

Tahini aside as Sid says Iranzo in Nerja is so worth a visit. Have been shopping there since the early 1980's and the spice section is amazing as well as many other hidden gems throughout the shop.

Re: Amazon Echo now availabe in Spain

Sid A little tip if relevant to where your router is situated. The first week I had the 4K Firestick I experimented with connectivity. For three days used it via WIFI and then for 3 days hardwired with a Cat 7 cable. The result was I found that hard wired was quicker to load and picked up the full 2...

Re: Now tv poor picture..

Maybe run your problem by Smart DNS support see if they can help....they may suggest you use a different set of DNS numbers. Also hope that someone here subscribes to the SKY Package you have and can tell you if they have a problem like yours or not

Re: Now tv poor picture..

Maybe a temporary glitch on Sky servers, how long have you had the problem. My first thing if you haven't already done so would be to unplug the box from mains and leave for a minute then plug in and let it reboot and see if that clears it. plus read a similar problem and solution here https://commu...

Re: Amazon Echo now availabe in Spain

Sid had my 4k firestick for a few weeks now U.K version and not noticed any limitations to its functions. Maybe they mean that as the U.K specific 4k stick comes preloaded with bbc iplayer ITV hub etc that these U.K specific apps wont work outside the U.K. if you just plug n play. As to language no ...

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

I find it very frustrating that the BBC who in my opinion produce/commission some of the finest programmes around are lagging well behind the likes of Netflix, Amazon in 4k UHD content. Not a fan but I would have thought that with one of their flagship programmes in Dr Who that they would have broad...

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Obviously there is so little UHD content on the BBC that it’s difficult to have a clear picture what works with what. To watch Dynasties, i need to use SmartDNS as both Unblockus and Smarty throw up an error message. Another problem I get is that for some reason, I cannot access Netflix or BBC 4K o...

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Blue Planet 2 is on BBC iPlayer but pretty certain it is not available in 4K HDR I recall they made it available in this format back in Jan for a limited time only, hence I assume that is why it is now available on Netflix

Re: UK TV Channels for free

Exactly you have hit the nail on the head he was asking as thread title suggests he was looking for FREE UK Channels yet it was you that brought the PAY Transponder TV into the thread for reasons only known to yourself. If you haven't grasped all the superior alternatives by now I don't think with y...

Re: UK TV Channels for free

Indeed I think the OP will have a good idea from the feedback what to use to access Free TV, and as he'd already used transponder TV as he said in his initial post!!! I doubt he'll go back down that route when so many superior options are available to him.
