Re: NowTV

You Can't.....NOWTV box does not allow access to the DNS settings....you'll need to change them in your Router. I use smartdnsproxy.

Re: IPTV disappearing

The Users are the idiots . Certainly not the "criminals" flogging these dodgy IPTV packages and pocketing the money and not the authorities which are having a purge and closing them down

Re: Smarty BBC

Tickbyte have a comprehensive set up instructions page at their website. You will need to install the DNS into your Router to enable you to use the NOWTV box as you cannot access the DNS setting within this particular device.

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

Same as you Sid, OS Mojave 10.14.6 full upgrade done on Monday to Macbook pro and iMAC took no more than 15-20 minutes on both machines...iMac slightly quicker and everything as it was in its rightful place before upgrade.

Re: Wireless internet provider in Granada city?

1. they are gangsters (take, for another example the "Fibreoptic Broadband" which isn´t fiberoptic at all but a co-axial connection). Mine and everyone who I know that has Movistar Fibre installed most definitely HAS fibre optic cabling from exchange through into their Movistar Router. NO...

Re: SmartDNSProxy not working

Sid......I only had that problem on one device and that was my Macbook Pro.....solved simply by rebooting it. I have always since day one had my DNS set within my Movistar Fibre router.

Re: SmartDNSProxy not working

That is the old original list that has been at their website for years. The list which I posted above was updated on 18th June 2019. I would be inclined to choose from that. It is also to be found here https://support.smartdnsproxy.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2945135-update-of-smart-dns-servers-...

All working as normal here, but as North and South says sometimes iPlayer takes a couple of attempts to pick up the stream. But not so much recently as when they sent out their new updated list of DNS servers I changed mine for different ones and have found an improvement and also 4k UHD streams loa...

Re: Wimbledon UHD

Just open iPlayer app on the 4k Firestick and the Ultra HD stream will be available from the BBC iPlayer home screen as soon as any match they are covering in UHD begins.

Re: On Off Internet

When Movistar installed Fibre Optic in our street two years ago they ran the Fibre Optic cable direct from the Fibre Junction Box in the street all the way to the router inside the house. As far as I'm aware you still have to pay for the landline service and the phone plugs into the back of the Rout...

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

The poster asked if anyone had experience of the Venz Android Box, which so far nobody seems to have, all Mark Wilding did in the spirit of the forum was suggest an Alternative and expressed the positives of the Firestick and on the subject of the excellent remote I happened to agree with him..........

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

Yes completely agree Mark the Fire Remote is so user friendly in every way and makes everything very simple. Having used all combinations over the years if you set a benchmark for "user friendliness" at 10 I would give Firestick a 9+ a wireless mouse and keypad a 4 and an airmouse a 3.

Tahini aside as Sid says Iranzo in Nerja is so worth a visit. Have been shopping there since the early 1980's and the spice section is amazing as well as many other hidden gems throughout the shop.
