  1. Thank you Martin 963 for your clarification. I have now bought a Humax box (from Amazon France; Amazon Uk won't deliver to France)
  2. However the manual for the Cahors TVS8100 claims that it has 7 day EPG!

  3. OK - I checked previous messages. Presumably the Humax box records but you can't do catch up for things you haven't recorded.
  4. Sorry What is Crabtree catch up? Our internet is very unreliable so we can't use that. I presume the Humax box uses satellite?
  5. Thank you for your replies. Yes we are in the South of France and we do have a large dish, but we had no problems with our Sky box before - apart from the usual loss of connection which I understand everyone had. I'm wondering if he hasn't set it up right bit it it good to get feedback from the forum before I go back to him.
  6. Our local retailer has just installed for us a Cahors box which we were told would record English channels. We can only see the programme that is on and the one following it – so no 7 day TV guide as specified in the manual. Our retailer told us it was the fault of the satellite provider that we could not get the 7 day guide

    Previously we had a Sky box but were paying £45 per month for not a lot of features, although we could record on it. The main reason for getting this one was to set up recordings as we did on the Sky box.

    I would be grateful for any comments.

  7. Recent article in the Times suggests Marseillan may be the new St Tropez (as it was in the 1950s)


  8. Why do people come to the Languedoc? We get most of our bookings from people who have been coming to France for several years and are looking for a new area to visit. So I would recommend  national / international web sites - not for me to say which one, although we use Chez Nous and find them very good. We did try http://www.aweekor2inlanguedoc.com/ when they had an offer for free advertising, and got one booking, but decided not to continue with them when the free period ended.

  9. I have now received a cheque - from a school in Cardiff, who of course know nothing of it. OK I was a fool to have gone this far, but while I was well aware of all these scams I didn't know they operated in the property rental area. And do all your clients have good English? Mine usually do but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't.

    Perphaps there are some other people in this forum who are not aware of these scams. This may be useful for them.
  10. I pointed out that there were only 30 days in November. That doesn't make it a scam (multiple !!!)

  11. I've received an enquiry from the restezenfrance web site for a booking for the whole of November. The wording is similar to that in other scams reported in this forum. The enquirer lives in Canada. I've been waiting for his cheque for 2 weeks but am now pretty certain it's s scam.

  12. I personally prefer French chocolate to English, but it’s strange

    what the British get nostalgic for (these are for some expat friends). I will give it a try anyway.

  13. Does anyone have any ideas as to whether this would be permissible? I'm flying from Bristol Airport and am not sure if I'd be able to buy them after security clearance there.
