Heatmiser have had Wireless thermostats with smart phone apps for a couple of years now
And whilst your at it a suitable add on in the wired house will be the ability to send an onscreen message to the Sky box telling them to get of their arse, stop watching telly and do some homework or empty the dishwasher
Re: One wonders if he'd activated "Find my iPhone"
There is a flaw in the software that enables the miscreant to disable the phone comms by enabling plane mode even if the screen is locked and thus stop the phone from phoning home until he can work out how to break into it properly
It's gonna take a lot of tins to paint that bugger
On Freesat HD if I select BBC1 it will tell me there is an HD version of the same program and give me the option to select it.
On Sky I tend to watch (or record) non HD BBC programs because the HD version is hidden away on another tab and I keep forgetting but if you look at Sky Sports and Movies all the HD channels come first followed by their lesser equivalents

VPN - Any Recommendations?
There are loads of sites out there recommending Free VPNs for secure browsing and anonymity but having read lots of reviews and then used OpenVPN and CyberGhost based on these I've decided they are proving to be decidedly ropey.
I want something that secures my connection, ideally doesn't require me to sign up for an account and if a free product has a decent quota and reasonable speed. Mostly for internet surfing, banking etc and some downloading. What do you lot use?
Mine works fine in all weathers
Re: Abusing the legislation
Very good service
Turned up on time to install fibre router, called me before hand to check I was home and let me know he was sorting out settings at the exchange and street cabinet.
Install was really neat and engineer very polite and well informed. All up and running in about an hour. Cannot fault him
I'm with Sky on fibre and I just hope that migrating that lot onto the Sky network doesn't impact my current service and slow me down due to over loading the network.
No worse off
I've been with Sky for years now and my speeds have recently been poor due to their DLM strangling my line because of noise apparently. Ive just been sent a replacement router and micrfilters and had DLM taken off.
Currently getting 5.5meg which I'm pleased with.
Fair play to Sky, their customer service has been excellent, it's just the automated DLM and possibly my line that's the problem.
Have read the comments I checked all quoted suppliers, BE, ZEN, IDnet and all will only give me a top whack of 3mb. So I'm happy to stay put for now and if I upgrade anything it will be to Fibre.
Included with Sky
I get free cloud wifi as part of my Sky subscription. Quite useful on the phone as their app detects and signs you in automatically
So when he says they will show you how to differentiate between individual offspring and the times and sites they casn access, how are ISPs going to do that then with a multitude of web enabled kit like PC, Tablet, phone?
I've looked in my router settings and there is nothing in there that will allow me to limit such things with that level of finesse

Requirements for an ideal Android Smartphone
I'll start with my must haves
Must fit in hand, pocket, handbag comfortably
Good antenae for use indoors and weak signal areas
Decent speaker volume
So if I find an alternate TPB site and start downloading could I, if ever I get a knock on the door use the excuse that my ISP has blocked access to TPB as a defence as I couldn't possibly get round that surely?
You can set the warm up period from 1 to 3 hours in the config settings. The unit does work out how long it takes to raise the room temp by 1 degree so if you set it to 3 hours it will switch on anytime within this period
Surely a job for PARIS & LOHAN
