Re: Samsung 2021

I have the 2020 Samsung 55’ Q80T I love it, but I expect the latest Neo versions will be better. However, I think we are talking tiny differences in quality at a very big increase in price. A lot depends on how close to the TV that you sit. I sit about 5 ft from our 55’ TV which is pretty close to t...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

I did ask you all to keep this thread on topic which it clearly has not been achieved.

Since I really havent got time to delete all the off topic posts I am closing the thread.

If anyone feels the need to discus TRAVEL COVID REQUIREMENTS feel free to. start a new thread.

Re: Potencia standing charge

Just look at your current bill and it will show the potencia charge as € per Kw. Just increase it pro rata with the potentia increase. ie Double the potencia - double the price.

Re: Digital Covid Travel Certificate

Latest news from UK government is that if you enter UK you must have an NHS vac certificate, not one of the nasty EU ones!

Re: TVPlayer

You were lucky. There were loads of complaints in the papers this morning about ITV steaming services crashing during the match.

It is for UK residents only who have been jabbed in the UK.

Schaps specifically said it could be extended to other visitors later this summer.

Re: Changes to Electricity Tariffs

I really don’t understand what they are doing. I have always had a dual priced supply and I can see the advantage of “forcing” people to switch from a fixed rate (and it will save money) but if you look at the Endesa site they are still offering flat rates tariffs and the old 14 hour cheap rate dual...

Re: Comparison Site

Two options.

If you have one of the new Smart meters, turn off the main breaker and put it back on again.

If you do not have a Smart meter, there is a potencia breaker which will have tripped. Just turn it back on.

Circuit breakers control specific devices or groups of devices. If the power used on that breaker circuit exceeds the rating of that breaker the breaker will trip The potencia breaker measures the total power used throughout the house and trips when that is exceeded.

Re: Bank charges on pension deposit.

With the now tiny amount of interest on the customers accounts, they can no longer afford to offer unlimited free banking without imposing requirements such as regular deposits, taking out insurance etc.

Re: Funcionario tax

Have you declared this income as exempt income? You don’t directly get taxed on it but potentially it will affect your tax bill if you have other taxable income such as UK pensions.
