Re: Car Insurance NCB

Yes, you get ncb . No it is rarely on the paperwork. Yes they accept UK ncb's. Seconded. Plus, they (Linea Directa then) were happy to accept my company car NCB too, I just needed a letter of confirmation from my UK employer of the time. I've since moved to Verti who in may case are significantly c...

Re: unicaja login - urgent !

I was under the impression that the coordinates card was defunct, for straight on line purchases at least, as I have for some while only received a texted security code to my nominated mobile number.

Re: Carpet cleaner solution

I sent an enquirey to the above vendors, their reply was that receiving the goods was a bit of a lottery!

However, I did come across two vendors on Amazon.es that would seem to stock the product within Spain?

The first two on this LINK

Re: Windows 8.1, tips?

Hi folks, Many thanks for the information thus far, that ITpro link looks handy especially, I hadn't bumped into that one on my travels as yet. I'll also look into Classic Shell a bit closer. I'm using a standard screen (not touch). I have already sorted booting to desktop along with numerous other ...

Windows 8.1, tips?

I've jumped with both feet into the world that is Win8.1. I've come from XPpro (seems like an old friend) with no experience worth mentioning of Win7. Took a little while to remember my way around the basics, make a few well documented changes to ease navigation and load the first few programmes. Do...

Re: Over Friendly Samsung TVs

Aha! That makes perfect sense as the IR system is one way only. You could try repositioning the IR receiver in the kitchen. Firstly they are a little directional i.e. the width of field (how wide it can see a remote IR signal) is far greater than it's height. Therefore, you could turn the receiver o...

Re: Over Friendly Samsung TVs

I don't suppose you have any type of signal relaying system in the house? Video sender etc. Although functioning in a different signal realm they can sometimes, inexplicably relay other other types of signal command. There is also the "Magic Eye" infra red sender that would definitely achieve this i...

Re: Anyone know where I can get some HIFI speakers repaired?

Hi DA, I was hoping you'd say you use Foobar2000, as I know that programme far better. JRiver is its equal but has a much better user interface, especially when using from a remote device like you are. I know folk using your Musiland 01 US on JRiver with ASIO so yes it is possible, with great result...

DA, Are you still having problems getting Asio to work? If yes, it's worth it, and to save me reading the entire thread again could you supply the following info. What programme are you using for ripping. What programme for playback. What operating system are you using. What output from the laptop (...

Re: What's your opinion?

My wife also has this condition. Doctors in England and Spain have agreed on Ibuprofen as first choice in her case.

We also use a "cold cream" directly to the area, especially leading up to menstruation when it's most uncomfortable/painful.

Re: linea directa

I also had my proven NCB from the UK accepted by Linea Directa. That was quite some time ago though. Since my Spanish improved to a usable level I have switched to Verti, they offer slightly better cover and are substantially cheaper, in my case at least. When I first changed, Linea Directa offered ...

Re: Anyone know where I can get some HIFI speakers repaired?

Absolutely nothing wrong with the way you have connected up your little Kefs. If it bugs you however, buy some 4mm ("banana") speaker plugs i.e. two red & two black. Use the short speaker wire bridges between the same colour terminals as have done already. Fit the 4mm plugs to the ends of the main s...

Hi DA, Re the QED switch; On the rear of the box you will have the four pairs of connector-block inputs & outputs you mention. Instead of your 'speakers connecting directly to the Myst, they go into the terminals of the QED box marked "SPEAKERS", then under that are marked "Right + -" and "Left + -"...
