Re: Banks getting greedy - governments says it will act

Do you even need a Cypriot bank account anymore given that there are services like revolut.com? Does anybody have experience with them? Are they reliable and convenient? These days as far as I can work out there is absolutely no need to have a Cypriot bank account. I do have one but haven't needed ...

Is it not a good attitude to take pride in whatever you're doing, and in so doing make it as accurate as possible?

Re: Farage interview with The Donald

Jimgym Quite so, all part of remain propaganda, no-one was horrified by what Obama said, so why pick on something Trump has said, true or otherwise. I have no respect for the man, but he is the President of the USA, there are not many in the world as powerful as him. There's a massive difference be...

Re: Is your mag box a fake ?

If you're getting too much trouble for too long stick one, or even a couple of free trials on your box to get you by. Some providers also do a 3day trial for about a fiver

Re: Stark, staring, bonkers.

It may well be in the culture to celebrate Greek events, what I find abhorrent however is the nature of some of these events. Certainly it was 12 or so years ago, but we went to a 28Oct "show" at my Granddaughter's school. This involved these 8 year olds dressing up in camouflage suits, waving prete...

I don't believe that the current Parliament will ever be happy with any deal, most want to remain. It's up to the people to make sure that the right M.P.s are elected who will agree to Brexit.
If "most" want to remain, how do you equate that with the bill having been passed

Sorry Jim, but there is absolutely no problem playing around with the buffer settings, it's a known and tried method of helping with short term buffering problems, that's why it is included in your settings.

Re: Is your mag box a fake ?

Have been discussing this over the weekend - we have Magbox 250 and both the Magbox supplier and my techie friend recommend the buffer should be set at 2 seconds for all channels. if you have a good provider you will not get buffering at any time of day or night. Well, I guess my supplier must be g...

And my provider is €180 a year; same as one of Jim's, with excellent local and very personal service. He kindly programmed my new Mag box FOC. Horses for courses I guess, I do like to be in full control of my box. If your provider is one of those who lock your box to their service, should you wish ...

Re: Is your mag box a fake ?

You can alter the buffering on any mag box, both in the inner portal and in your server's portal. Sometimes helps to increase it if you are experiencing temporary buffering, and you can always revert back to your original setting. As usual you tube have guides to help
