Re: T.I.E

I've been reading the posts about Tie and I have to admit I thought we would have to exchange the little green card at some point. However, I don't need a Tie for ID as I various alternatives and having listened to this video it seems that we don;t need to exchange it. One of my reasons for not chan...

Re: Citrus trees

I must admit I don't water and I'm wondering if previously the numerous water leaks were doing the job for us lol.
Maybe now they are apparently fixed I might need to water.

Re: Residencia. Yes or No ?

Isn't the main problem the increase in income requirement from non EU residency applications?

Re: Citrus trees

I wish I could help. When we moved into the villa we had 2 orange trees, a grapefruit tree and a kumquat. All had lots of fruit, then we had to remove them apart from the grapefruit tree (nowhere else to put a shed). I planted a mandarin tree which has been doing really, although last year very few ...

Re: Endesaonline

I'm wondering if he was trying to access the wrong site which is why I put the link. I seem to recall I had a similar problem. It's difficult to help unless you can actually see what someone is doing. I had one site that immediately said incorrect Nie as soon as I put the X in so I thought it must s...

Re: Best VPN for BBC Sounds downloads & iPlayer

I know someone who paid for Nord and says it wasn't working for BBC iPlayer. I get the feeling they're all struggling and their fall back is they didn't promise it would. The main reason we wanted it was for catch-up but we pay £35 for an annual subscription to some guys from Liverpool who call them...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

My initial post referred to one size fits all. Our little town doesn't get many tourists or visitors and we know most people. I'm not going to argue the effectiveness of masks protecting the individual as it depend on the type of mask and how you wear it etc etc. Unless you practice good hygiene as ...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

Well come on then Sid, can you explain the reasoning of wearing masks when you are nowhere near another human being because that is basically what it means. It's total nonsense. As for going away, it may never go away or it may suddenly just disappear as has happened before, meantime the flu in diff...

Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

If the article in The Olive Press is correct, it appears that masks will be compulsory from next week irrespective of whether social distancing can be observed or not. This would seem to be a "one size fits all" excuse the pun, and I feel it is completely unnecessary and I can see no logical reason ...

Smarty has started playing up again. I just tried SuperVPN the free version and it worked right off. So, for how long??

Re: Best VPN for BBC Sounds downloads & iPlayer

Satandpcguy, I never raised it as I tried it whilst I was about to and it worked. To be honest, it's been working ever since using dns. I haven't tried the vpn as it doesn't matter so long as one of them works.

Re: Changing Residencia Nationality

Unfortunately that wasn't what happened at the Almeria Oficina de Extranjeros . They said if we anted to change nationality we would have to apply as if we had only just arrived i.e. a completely new application. Any history as residents (we had been registered for 6 years) would not count. We had a...

Re: Changing Residencia Nationality

I've been a bit unsure about this. Qe were both born in Northern Ireland so have dual nationality but when we tried some time ago to change it from UK to Irish it was problematic. We were told we had to start from scratch i.e. any years residence before didn't count as they would treat us a differen...

TV with built in satellite receiver

I was helping an old lady whose husband died a year ago and she told me she had lost all her TV channels. I am always happy to help where I can and I had helped her before to tune in a Freesat box. However, when I got there the box was disconnected and I couldn't figure out if she was using a Smart ...

Re: Best VPN for BBC Sounds downloads & iPlayer

Well, I tried again just now and using DNS and not VPN and watching live BBC1 so seems DNS is the way to go. I tried Pure (free version) but found it awkward with all the adverts and it switched itself off now and again.

Re: Best VPN for BBC Sounds downloads & iPlayer

UPDATE - I got the DNS option on the android box to work with iPlayer. All I did was change a couple of settings unless, of course, it was just co-incidental. I changed the setting DNS server t Europe, it was on USA and I changed the update VPN to every 15 minutes although that shouldn't have made a...

Re: Best VPN for BBC Sounds downloads & iPlayer

Oh Dear, seeing this I tried my Smarty and on the VPN on London I can't get BBC iPlayer. When I try Smart DNS I get a message something has gone wrong. I only recently purchased Smarty because Freedome had stopped working (actually they say it's working fine as a VPN, but they never said they'd allo...
