  1. That speed is rather slow and you may well suffer a lot of buffering. You may get a better connection by not using Wi-Fi and using an Ethernet connection, this solved my problem. If your router is too far away from your set you could consider using an Ethernet connection via you mains.

  2. If there is not a leak you can cure the problem permanently by replacing the existing radiator air valve with an automatic bleed valve. Very cheap and easy to do and do not even have to drain the radiator. Look here for an example:

  4. A difficult question to answer as the quality and thickness of the liner would have to be taken into consideration. I have been advised that above 28C may considerably reduce the life of the average liner. If you are looking for temperatures in the 30s then a hot tub may be a better and less costly solution.

  5. Press and hold down "Control" then press + to increase size and - to decrease.

  6. Whilst this will not solve your problem, I would strongly recommend that you immediately change your email password if you are worried that your email addresses may be used.

  7. The link you supplied refers to 12 Feb 2009, so I wonder what is the point of your posting if this is now 3 years old.

    Here's my monies worth and how I would tackle it.

    Get out and about and visit some shops like Darty etc and have a look at the TV's on display and see which ones have the picture you like because at the end of the day it's down to personal choice of picture quality.

    A good source of info is also Which magazine if you have an account (or perhaps a family member does).

    Witch magazine, one of the greatest rip offs on the planet. Absolutely not needed now we have the Internet, only read by people who are too old to own a computer. The cost of Witch magazine per year, ha you could go out and buy the most expensive item and forget Witch reviews, every 3-4 years you could throw the item away for what you wasted in Witch subscription.

    [/quote]

    Théière, I am very surprised at your comments about Which and I find your comments totally out of date.

    I resubscribed to Which some 15 months ago and how it has changed since I was last a member.

    It now provides in addition to the magazines, weekly internet newsletter updates on products, cars, money etc, a free computer problem solving service. Which Local  has been invaluable to me by providing a free, reliable and  recommended tradespeople online service. It has saved members masses of money with its legal service, the internet site information is updated immediately to which members subscription gives full access and this just to mention a few aspects you get for a small outlay.

    I  have no connections with Which other than being a member. I also suspect it might benefit financially many of contributers on this site, that thanks to Which and the members  petitioning the UK government to stop the  "Excessive" fees for using a debit or credit card to buy items such as travel that the government are now ending this bad practice by the end of 2012..

  9. If you were to install a winter cover, this would prevent the majority of leaves entering the pool and it is easy to remove any leaves on the cover. These covers are not cheap but I would recommendit as a worth while investment to protect your pool. I very much doubt that a plastic cover would last after the first heavy rain, snow fall or a strong windy day.

    Why not look at a comparison site, for example:

  11.  Martin " I wondered about a freesatfromsky card".  Sorry to disappoint you, but this card will not allow the record facility to work a Sky+ box, the only option available is a subscription to Sky to enable the box to record.

  12. Sadly Sky in their ultimate wisdom require you to have an active sky contract to record any stations on a Sky+ Box. Without the contract being active the Sky+ box will act as a normal FTA (Free To Air) box effectively allowing you to view the FTA stations but with no recording features. I suspect as the original owner of the box probably had been given it free by Sky, so their rule of being a subscription only service is not unfair.

    The solution as you mentioned  would be the purchase of a freesat + HD box

  13. If you are going to update IE, I am surprised that IE8 is being suggested when the latest and IMO the best version ever is IE9.

    Baz

  14. I have found them in the larger supermarkets and I suspect they will be readily available now. The prices were cheaper than the UK.

    Baz

  15. When I upgraded about a year ago to an HD Box, I did not want a telephone connection and this was alright, provided I paid an additional charge of about £100 for the box. In fact unofficially if you disconnect the box after installation they take no action. (unless you are very unlucky).
