Re: Free range chicken?

Can anyone here help with our dilemma – we can't seem to find anywhere selling free-range chickens. :wave: I have a couple that have had a wonderful life, but its time for them to move on. I have not got the heart to wring their necks as we are on first name terms! Free to take, but you do the wrin...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

Sorry but that's not possible. Something else is causing that to happen. It's not the VPN. Sid I accept what you say is true, I would have said it myself before the effects I am getting now. On the router I have the option to use VPN or my normal ISP, just changing from my normal ISP to VPN provide...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

Also, a VPN almost always reduces the speed of your Internet connection significantly. Sid Got to disagree with you on that bit Sid, on my setup, I actually get a better speed going through my VPN than when not. Do not ask me why, it just happens. Sometimes my download is doubled and at times my up...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

Hi Gerry Do you buy the router set up, or is that something you can do to any router ? Cheers :) I bought mine from a company , telling them which VPN provider I was using ( I used to have it set up on my computer). This was to ensure that my VPN provider and their VPN router were compatible. At a ...

Re: Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter

I use one to connect our Apple MacBook to the TV. (MacBook,- Lightning cable,- HDMI cable,- TV) The quality is extremely good, and in addition on the IPlayer channels, you also get the option to download the programme.
Got mine from a Todo Shop at a fraction of the branded price!

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

I'm surprised you prefer Android TV to the NOW TV box. I find that both have their strengths, the Now TV box is great for the main stream channels and the Android box is great for watching Shows and Films (though I am not sure on the legality, but that is a another story for a different forum!). Fi...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

Hi Gerry to use the Now box what exactly do you need?? a vpn service ?? Yes, you need location masking of some sort, I use a VPN router with an annual subscription of US$ 51 or thereabouts. The advantage of the setup on a router is that all your other devices can use the system ( Kindle, IPad, Lapt...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

I still maintain apart from satellite, the NOW TV box is the best option. Got to agree with Mark, the Now TV box is absolutely the best value around providing you have got the ways and means to get it set up. The picture quality is extremely good. I still use my android box, and for what I use it f...

Re: Android TV Box Reposits

Its a bit difficult to help as you have not stated what type of box you are using. There are a lot of forums out there that can help. I have a Minix 7 and the Minix 7 forum has recently helped me solve a problem. It is necessary to be quite specific, not working any more, covers a multitude of possi...

Dave, It will be difficult to advise you without knowing the area in which you will be living. Do you have access to ADSL or do you live in the campo with a wet string telephone line (or no line at all)? Personally I have no access to telephone lines and therefore use a WiMax connection. This is sim...

Amazon UK and ES have them (Minix X8) mine is a Minix X7. You could try Minix-Europe.com, they are based in Germany and have the Air Mouse at a far better price than Amazon. The remote that comes with most IPTV boxes is normally one up from useless. The Air Mouse you use like your finger on a touch ...
