Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

Beware that with Vodafone you have to top up within a certain time, so if you are an infrequent user (like my OH) and think you haven’t used any funds it could be disconnected...it is a pain to start it again!

Use a trolley - I particularly like the small ones in Lidl - and you can wheel it all to your car for packing. Useful if you put appropriate things in a cooler box.

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

"Can you not install the app on your LG TV?"
It would need an android box, but they are working on apps for the major smart tv systems (they say).

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

after playing with tvmucho's free trial I signed up for it - under 70 Euros a year for 33 HD & SD channels. Results so far are excellent - the Hd pictures on the new LG 55" Nano are superb, and apart from one short break due to the internet going off we have had perfect reception, even thou...

Re: Many tax questions

What's the income taxation treatment in Spain of a pension pot. To be clear, I've got a decent sized SIPP which I'm not planning on turning into an annuity or anything like that - it's just sitting around? My understanding is that this “pot” would be an asset, and assuming it is over €50k it must b...

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

.....wimax will be getting its signal from an Antenna in line of sight from a distant/near location. Based on this if you're going down the TV over internet you'll have the same breakup when the weather is bad. This is my reading of your current setup and looking at the Avatel site. I have Wimax an...

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

We have no dish - it would need to be a hefty size so ugly, and we have nowhere to put it, having a townhouse now rather than our villa in Comares. We use what I assume is a re-broadcast service from Avatel with a Wimax mini-dish (same for internet pointing at a different transmitter). I don't know ...

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

Currently we have no channel4 coming from Avatel, but perfect 4HD on my laptop with tvmucho. I am unclear if it is possible to download the app to a smart tv, or if I have to use my iPad and Appletv to send it to a tv - or connect the laptop with hdmi lead, either of which I would like to avoid.

Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

Loads of stuff around on getting uk tv, sadly getting very technical very quickly! Can anyone cut through the fog? I read about loading with Kodi, using Firestick and so on and it soon begins to be double-ukranian to my ageing brain. If I bought an LG 55UM7610PLB what would I need to get roughly the...
