Thanks for that, I am on a VPN router. Changed to a different server in London but I am getting the same result! More investigation is called for.

Re: Bogus Gas Appliance Inspectors!!

It is likely as usual that many if not all of these concerns will turn out to be urban myths, but I just wondered if you had had any problems when you converted ?

Re: Catchup On Humax Freesat

Correct Sid, it needs a Freesat and an internet connection working together. JTB is determined to get some use out of his Humax box. It is a good piece of kit, but unfortunately not in this part of Spain.

Re: Correos & registered post

Not quite the same thing, but I posted a bubble wrap envelope/packet on Tuesday ( 3days ago) and it was delivered this morning in the North West of England. Unfortunately there was no tracking available! Not bad for €1.55.

Re: Dancing classes for my daughter

I hate to be a killjoy, but surely your daughters education is more important at this stage in her life. Her passion for dance can be fulfilled almost anywhere but her education sets her up for the rest of her life. Complete education then dance to your hearts content. Just my humble thoughts.

I have been unable to find the answer in the depths of this forum, but how far in advance can you renew your Spanish driving licence?

Not quite true, you still have to obtain an over 75 licence but it is free of cost.

Loads instantly using Edge on my computer, but a few days ago the filmon app on my NowTV boxes stopped working, the problem was resolved by using a later version of the app.

On my computer I am using Win10.
