Re: Sodding Pace - now permanent shitlist members
Perhaps Humax are best of a bad bunch then?
Pace though - they have burnt me too many times
Sodding Pace - now permanent shitlist members
I had it out with them. I had a Pace Twin PVR, worked fine until DSO, hardware is 8k compliant but the software isn't. (I could watch but not record).
I phoned them up. Managed to get through to an engineer.
He basically admitted that they could fix it but did not want to spend the time nor money fixing it.
Good news for Humax I feel, as they are the only PVR manufacturer I have used who have NOT let me down. I had a nice chat about their models recently and will be getting a HD Freeview PVR from them soon.
So if anyone from Pace is reading, due to having to bin £450 of your crap, OK a DTVA and a Twin you are on my shitlist and I will NEVER buy anything of yours again.
Humax are always helpfull, I had an early Sony IDTV and they were helpfull, 3 visits to get everything working perfectly including OnDigital. So please note now have Sony LCD panel and my Humax collection will get bigger.
Anyway a 20GB USB dive is usefull and the 100GB I replaced it with is now in a home PC.
Put out some serious power. I was having a look to see if Sutton would be affected.
Well I thought
Zed launcher and it will stay that way.
As to US spelling, quite often the wrong spelling means that you cannot pronounce them properly.
Think how we say colour, that u is essential for the way you say it.
I already have my suggestions for the media bosses and they would not like it.
We have 6 Sony games devices connected to the internet, I don't think it will reach a PSP, nor all the Vitas*. But the 2 consoles will be.
* Teenage boys 2, me 1
** Hmm some mobile telephone game (then on a N8), or Killzone Mercenary and Tearaway, easy choice.
And PS4 BBC Iplayer is horrid!
Lots of people own consoles
Quick poll here
1 has a Roku
3 have a PS3 (one of those a PS4 as well)
I liked 2 a lot.
I was not a fan of Jason Brody. At least in 2 you could choose a character.
But out of the lot Blood Dragon is simply fun.
I will get FC4 when it dips below £40
My wife set up an account for me for faceache game reasons
And I never use it, I just connected up my PSN account so everyone who follows me or whatever the **** it is called knows when I get a trophy.
Oh and that share feature is so usefull for filling faceache up. I use it on Destiny while waiting for public events. So you get a nice view of the Mothyards.
I checked it recently some unread messages from last Christmas!!!!!!
The qualification name
Makes me think of Male Chauvinist Pig
Can we have it on Fridays?
I keep missing them on Monday
Re: There is at least one upside to vinyl.
But CBS later Sony Music are the section which hurt the WHOLE companies reputation.
The head office should have insisted that the root kit morons (I wonder if that was same people) commit Hari Kari.
Re: What next?
VHS needs to die permanently as the second worse video format ever (only CVC was worse) I detest it.
I have used N1500 format as well!.
I still use a VCR but it is inside my video camera and records using MPEG2 onto Mini DV tapes in HD.
As to music I have in working condition play back for
MiniDisc, CD, SACD, DVD-Audio, HiFi VCRs. And in now broken my turntable and my cassette deck (with Dolby B and C).
Vinyl could sound good with decent kit.
Some nonsense then total sense.
Keeping speaker cables away from power cables is sensible, as it keeping signal cables away as well.
But antistatic stands !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: There is at least one upside to vinyl. Phil
Actually some VCRs (Sanyo and Sony) ignored the messed up signals and recorded as well as they could.
Which Sony VCRs totally ignored to my amusement.
Copied a couple of rental DVDs this way
Seeing Insomniac on a MS console must be as weird as seeing Bungie on a Sony console.
But then Fuse was disappointing, All for one was well definately no Crack In Time. But I did like Resistance 3.
However we need more good games regardless of platform.
Re: Watch Dog
No I played part of it on PS4, still crap driving controls, boring story and annoyed me.
Re: I used to like AC
I may one day but still enjoying Destiny, then I will be onto FC4 if it is any good, then I will want Order 1886 and UC4.
The AC loving son though wanted ACU on his gaming PC but it is not available so does not know what to do.
Home > Oops
An error was encountered while processing your request:
This item is currently unavailable in your region
So basically the AC fan son cannot play the new game as it has been removed from sale.
So what is wrong with the PC version?
Re: IWatch Dogs
Got bored after a few hours not touched since.
Luckily a boy had bought it and not me, Currently on Destiny - much more like it.
Re: I cannot read anything about HALO,
I have also wondered why they keep on about Master Chef as well, but I think of that funny accent chap rather than Mr Slaphead.
I used to like AC
But never even finished no 3
My favourites was the first, followed by AC2
You do know that?
This is a time some Vauxhall Owners use for themselves
A family near us has a couple not sure which badge, but they are pretty distinctive. They are all Aygos to me.
Re: Four adults?
No problem DInklage can go in the glove box, and hack the traffic lights while the driver gets attacked
Re: Pirate TV
I actually wanted better than PAL and was rather annoyed by the success of Sky to the detriment of BSB. Yes I have seen analogue Sky, not impressed.
Now we have MP3 being sucessful and SACD DVD-A virtually disappearing
Broadcast HD being a bodge (too low bit rate, too many moronic logos.)
Quality never wins.
Never used the Bs
Dropped the better technical system. Not a merger but a close down of a good system for a worse system..
Never used them, never will.
Re: Would you use an airline?
Funny I am sure I read a few years ago the pay was pretty poor? However it was definately a budget airline.
Anyway thankyou for correcting me.
Re: Would you use an airline?
Quite a few of us are on average wages and not high wages.
What sort of pilot are you going to get when you do not pay enough to buy a house say near London?
New ones, ones sacked from other airlines, and so on.
Would you use an airline?
Where the pilots earn substantially less than you?
A few points
1) Lumia would be a better brand name on a phone than Microsoft.
2) I do like the older Symbian Nokia phones, I found them easier to use day in day out than my current Android.
3) I prefer the old N8 to most modern phones, may be few apps, but it was nice to use and had a good camera.
One day there will be a perfect phone OS, from who, no one knows.
Re: No way to force?
I was saved by my HOSTS last night, for various reasons I had the popup blocker disabled, (wife doing surveys - she makes a few hundred a year doing this), suddenly 4 FF windows and some yank wanker waffling away.
Killed, added more domains to hosts, found it was an attempted incredibar install, why do AV companies not block this?
My HOSTS is getting very large, I even used to have Facebook in it!
Re: Secure Channel bug - does this affect XP ?
Just see if it is patched for Server 2003 or XP embedded.
Microsoft thinks my legally purchased XP Pro SP3 is XP embedded.
Yes the PC is a Triggers broom
Re: The laptop and desktop are dead.
RAILWAY station thankyou.
Re: Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose
A decent MPEG encoder used to take a day to encode two hours for a DVD on highest quality settings. A new PC greatly sped this up and I think a large part was going from IDE to SATA.
Now I handle HD, even the quad core plays up sometimes, but I do get the odd issue with strange frame behaviour (Editing MPEG2 if I insert an image it reencodes all teh MPEG2 and then messes up lip sync).
Gaming does appear to be a constant power battle, Good rooom heating though!
Re: t ful
Heard Westerns and Deltics - Deltics are definately the better sounding.
TBH on type 4s the 16CSVT takes some beating
Re: A nice tilt to Gricerdom
Looks like a good time to stock up on 56s then.
And I reckon 60s will become very sought after as the only really decent heavy hall locos of a reasonable number
Re: Sadly no sharks...
I have a Cambrian Shark, and a few Dogfish, and also a couple of Mermaids, 2 Turbots, and a few Sealions
Re: A nice tilt to Gricerdom
The emmisions regulations are hurting in the whole of Europe now with Diesel locomotives as decent high efficiency engines do not leave much room for exhaust cleaning kit.
Anyway what is wrong with a bit of clag?
Seen a 37 (Bony-Y-Bermo ? ) kick out a huge smoke cloud on the SVR many years ago.
I also like both of English Electrics big express designs.
Re: MTU makes me sad
You need to have experienced Paxman power, it was a large part of the character of the HST.
Also were British made power units.
MTU makes me sad
I miss the Paxman Valentas and the Paxman VP185s were a suitable British replacement.
Still the best high speed Diesels in the world for the last 40 or so years.
Re: Moffet MUS GO, but are there alternatives ??
To be honest show running he has been up to this series been a better show runner than RTD. But show running has dropped his script quality. Pre Clara the story arcs were better.
Before you knock him remember the little elf doctor. The episode we have all forgotten with Peter Kay. The farting aliens, all the average episodes were forget.
Also remember the excellent episodes from the early reboot such as "Are you my mummy?", The Girl in the Fireplace, and of course his best ever work, Blink.
To be honest a rest is best so we can have really good stories again, and a joint show runner to point him in the correct direction.
That said the special with John Hurt was rather good, and some proper out of sequence time stuff!
Didn't we see in a previous episode a descendant of Danny Pink?
Re: Watched last night on catch-up...
Blink was superb, as were the two episodes before.
Pity this last series has lost the magic of Blink, The Girl in the Fireplace, Doctor Dances/Empty Child.
Good moments but not a good series.
The Pond Williams period was to me much better
Re: Make IT STOP
Well if you suddenly found yourself there wouldn't you use your modern knowleage to make things better for your self?
Watches - don't like them
Very annoying as they are tight.
But to be honest the most annoying thing I can think of to wear is a suit!
Re: Cut-price console?
The PS3 is definately good at this, better than the PS4 currently.
Tend to use it mainly for that now until I get the new Borderlands game, or get an urge for Killzone multiplayer (don't like Shadowfall).
For some small companies it is.........
New server or pay staff
