Re: House Insurance

Just had our quote from LD for home insurance renewal. 330euros. Got a quote from Sabadell who came bac with 195euros... Plus no further bank charges for taking out their insurance. Win win it seems.

Re: Rejas doors

Tejiero in competa have done good work, including rejas for us in the past. Head up the road towards competa and you'll find them on your right hand side a kilometrr or so before the mirador. The builders yard is on the main road, the metalworkshop is behind it.

Re: UPS back up protection

Another big advantage of running the tv via a ups is that when the power goes off in the evening you aren't immediately plunged into complete darkness as the screen stays on. No groping around in the dark for a torch.

Re: TV

Hi Enrique, Just did the speed test and the result is 11.96...does that help? When the chap came to the house he did say the speed was between 10-15 but even as he was saying it some channels were not working properly. I pointed this out and he said he did not know why! I am monitoring the tv over ...

Re: CAR ITV - Whats going on??

Word of warning folks. One of our cars is due an itv in march, can't remember the actual date. So given the postings recently that suggested long lead times today i asked my village garage to book me an itv for early march. The earliest appointment they could get in algarobbo was for 29th March... S...

Re: New Tráfico app

Be careful you can only change your Google Play country once every 6 months. I recommend setting up a second account. I have 4 accounts on my phone for Google play and switch between themwithin Google Play as I need That's why i didn't want to change my main account. I thought it was 12 months tho....

Re: New Tráfico app

Errr nope, still only get the 'no official' app showing up, even if i turn off my vpn. Maybe something to do with my googleplay account setup..

Can't find it on apkpure or aptoide either..

Nope. Sideloading simply allows you to install apps that aren't available to your stick on the amazon app store.

Re: Another Benefit lost due to Brexit

Been using tvmucho for a couple of years. No vpn/dns required, has the main uk channels and the streams play pretty much faultlessly. Other options which are free include tvplayer or freeview, both of which require vpn/dns but also work well. However they may get blocked and rely on iplayer, itvhub ...

Re: New Tráfico app

Can you give a few more details of the app. When i search googleplay for midgt the only app with this title that appears is tagged as 'non official'. The other with dgt in it's name doesn't appear to do much at all after you add you car's reg numbers. Is there a direct link on the dgt website percha...

Re: live Channel 4 on NOW TV and Fire Stick

Must admit that i haven't tried setting the time to uk as it was working. I vaguely think that it went away when the stick was updated to the new gui. In the tvplayer app itself the epg is functioning and correct.

Worth a try tho.

Re: live Channel 4 on NOW TV and Fire Stick

Yep, tvmucho was the first app i sideloaded since it is our main live tv source. However it's epg doesn't show when livetv button or icon is selected on the stick. Have to do a bit of googling to see if there's a way to force it to appear, or get tvplayer epg reincluded in the listing. Don't get you...

Re: live Channel 4 on NOW TV and Fire Stick

Don't have enought linespeed for 4k, nor do i have the audio through the tv, so i went with the lite version. I find app2fire is the simplest way to sideload apps, although it doesn't work for all. I'm guessing because my tablet is 64bit and the stick isn't. For example stremio wouldn't transfer fro...

Re: live Channel 4 on NOW TV and Fire Stick

Bought a new Firestick Lite in the sales to play with. Well at 29euros hard to resist. Have to say that I'm pretty impressed with it. Sideloaded a couple of tv apps and it has pretty much taken over from my android box, apart from occasions when I need to run kodi. I like the live tv guide, except i...
