Re: Bluetooth headphones.

Thankyou "Peteroldracer".
Does this mean that using the "optical output" is the answer to the problem of having to unplug?
Could we pair our existing bluetooth headphones with the gadget you mentioned or are they a package?

Cheers JB

Bluetooth headphones.

We are about to buy a bluetooth transmitter for our "non-bluetooth" TV.; so that we can use headphones for some programmes with poor sound quality. As it will only be for selected programmes, ( don"t like wearing headsets for long periods :thumbdown: )how can we avoid having to unplug...

Re: Windows Updates

Thanks Enrique.
Final question: I've also read that it's never a good idea to install " Optional" updates,unless for a partucular problem.Is that your view too?

Re: W indows Updates

How the devil did you know I was refering to KB 5001649?
You are absolutely right of course!
I've read that it could be a bit of a problem.

Windows Updates

I have decided to ignore an "Optional Update" in W10.
It is sitting there on the " Windows Update " page,waiting for me to install it.
How long will it stay there?.........it irritates me :?

Doc's Appointments

I read a few weeks ago that "face-to-face" appointments ( " presenciales")would be available after Mar.4th.
When I check this on the "Salud Responde" app,there are only telephone appointments available.
Does anyone have any update on this please?

Re: MAG 254 box

Cheers Enrique. The usb stick sits in the front of the box and allows me to download programmes ( it means we can watch them anytime: not just within the 2week "catchup" facility). The stick I use is a "PNY". I also have a "Sandisk", which gives me the same problem. How...

MAG 254 box

I have been using a MAG 254 box for a few years now. Recently a small problem has arisen: When I try to "download" a programme , it takes ages to "Complete" 100%. During which time the box becomes very slow to react to the handset; so I can't really do anything else whilst it dow...

Re: Laptop "Poser"

Thanks again Enrique. Had a look at the "disk-sleep"/ "hybrid" stuff. Far too technical for me.( all that jargon about "RAM" sends me into a coma) I think I'll opt for my laptop "Hibernating" of it's own free will! Sometimes trying to solve a problem is more s...

Re: Laptop "Poser"

Hi Enrique Thanks for the link. I follwed the instructions to extend the time before hibernating from sleep. Unfortunately in the section "Hibrernate After" , It is already set to "Never" when plugged in. So i cannot understand why it hibernates after only a couple of hours. http...

Laptop "Poser"

I tend to use my laptop in short spells throughout the day.To this end, I have used "Power Options" settings to have my device "Sleep-When I close the lid" This is useful because whenever I return to it and open the lid: I'm back at the desktop in two seconds :P When I've finishe...
