sound bar

Hi all. I'm fed up with the lousy sound quality I get from my tv (LG42LN570S), half the time speech is so garbled I can't be sure what language people are speaking.

Re: Magic remote.

Hi Gerry.
Yes batteries are correct and the dongle is in firmly but no the remote does nothing, won't turn tv on or off nada!.
Have the ordinary remote but it's a pain to use after the magic one.

Re: External HD.

Thanks Cid, tried that and gave the disk a number and tried to find files but got the message that it wouldn't work on the current operating system. Thought I had it for a moment.

Re: External HD.

Enrique. When I right click all I get is a list starting with New simple volume followed by 4 other different volumes nothing else . Going to try the other suggestions, Acronis and the disk recovery programs see if they work though I have doubts. Wondering if the thing is corrupted now.

Re: Dog Feeding Frequency

I have a young GSD he's always been a slow eater compared to my previous dogs but the past two weeks he just picks at his breakfast which I leave down for an hour he eats his main meal late afternoon as normal, I think it's the heat I know I often don't fancy eating either.

Re: Income tax.

Thanks for the info I'll have a word with the accountant about that, I seem to be paying a lot of tax on a small pension from my old firm and the pension (or should that be benefit) I get from the UK.
