Re: Cancer Healthcare - Uninsurable

Similar here: when my wife reached pensionable age, although I hadn't, I was accepted on to the Health System here as a dependent. When I reached retirement age, I was re-categorised and issued with a new card.

Re: ITV changes recently (odb reader)

No sign of OBD at Algarobbo on 28 November.
Our 22 year old Citroen 2.5TD breezed through smoke test at 0.13m-1, so no grumbles there.

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

We learned today that Eastenders is still being filmed/recorded in SD, because the ancient set (at Elstree) is now so tatty that HD would show it up! I post this merely as a technical comment, of course. On the BBC UHD-4k front, I'm note sure how much of their terrestrial transmitter network in the ...

Re: Just bought a villa, now I need the internet

All direct debits are 'recallable' in Spain. Just instruct your bank to (a) return the unauthorised payment to you (b) cancel all future payment to the offending outfit. Did this Movistar did similar to us, deliberately dragging their feet over a contract cancellation. The effect was immediate. Our ...

Re: Problem - Canon All in One - Printer, Scanner, Copier

Most recent printers can be operated by USB (cable) connection. Worth a try.
If you still need a full user manual for the printer, you'll find on on Canon's website, under Support.

Don't use silicone, it's not really suitable for outdoor use - go for one of those mentioned.

Re: Quarry Tiles

Although quite a small gap, fine mortar will do fine. Add some PVA to it to make it less porous. A quick alternative, if there isn't hundreds of metres of it, is to fill the gaps with either polyurethane adhesive (eg Pattex PU298) or Pattex 101 GP sealant. Both available in standard cartridges, and ...

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Not sure if relevant, Mark, but Fire TV box mk1 wasn't 4k capable. I think mk2 was available in two versions, one of which was 4k. The mk3 'dongles' are all 4k, iirc.
Also not sure whether Int.907 is carrying 4k or not.

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Always a bit difficult to know when you're actually watching best 4k or not. My understanding is that many of the on-line broadcasters/streamers will adjust the bit-rate of the programme that you are watching to match the speed of your internet connection. You used to have to (or were invited to) ch...

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Yes, it's there too. Provided you have a 4k box, a 4k tv, and decent bandwidth, it should all be go.

Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

We're experiencing the same on our Fire TV (type 2 box): some Netflix items (including NCIS) throw up that message, while others (like Designated Survivor, Once Upon a Time) play no problem. It's on our list to message (= chat with) Smartdnsproxy. Their incident line (on-line chat, available 24/7) i...

Hi Gerry,

You could try Aki . . . nearest now Mijas or Motril. Used to be good on this sort of thing; were bought by Leroy M.

A brand that comes to mind is Keter. Items from them on Amazon.es.

Re: Goats

Five animals or more, for non-domestic purposes, and you may need a zoological licence (even if it's not a zoo) from Seprona.
Two goats should be fine, as this isn't a nanny state. (Just kidding.)

Re: Endesa air conditioning

It is true, they don't cause problems for everyone. But when they do, it is frequently a nightmare to sort out. If an accounting error occurs, the error always seems to be in their favour. They also take the firm stance that mistakes are the customer's fault, and that their smart meters are infallib...
