Annoying windows 10 updates!!

March 26, 2017 Leave a comment

I’ve been running windows 10 insider progam since it was released a long time ago, it’s much improved on win8. but I was lucky enough to upgrade via the 8 purchase due to my license not working even tho I paid for it unlike some.

Anyway this is about disabling updates, very simple hit the win + R and type in – gpedit.msc

and rid yourself of the damn updates every other day.

Removing trackpad from ASUS S300

Easiest fastest way is to enter BIOS – restart and press ESC and then diable internal pointer, forget disabling drivers etc it doesn’t work, well for me

So much easier this way and easy to reverese if required by simply doing it all again but re-enable it.

Lifes made easy

Asus S300 has been great since I upgraded the HDD to SSD but the trackpad went mental so wireless mouse is back in action.

Sound bar or sound base on old tv’s #Upgrade

November 1, 2016 Leave a comment

We own a 6 year old LG 37″ lg5000 TV OK it’s not the newest or very flashy but it works, its fairly slim and fits the room just right, anything bigger would be over kill !!

The sound is lousy these days with loads of reverb and bad echo so what’s the option the BIN ?? or a new sound bar to extend the life ??

Sound bars v sound bases !!

Samsung HWJ355 seems to be a decent budget unit but no HDMI option

We ended up buying the HDMI version as which said it was future proof and tbf it sounds just lovely !! Samsung model hw-k450 £179.99 very basey buy lovely clear voice and no more TV distortion 👍 which guide rated it 77%  money well spent in my books 💰💰

Save your old TV even tho those 4ks look amazing !!

Reliable cheap streaming for sports

June 11, 2016 Leave a comment

Update Oct 16

For a while we hit the perfect supplier in future streams until the 18th May 2016 when it all went tits up big time, hardly a day has passed without an issue, which is a shame but I guess ripping off the big boys somethings going to go a miss !!

Kodi is a wash of free streams mostly real poor quality, DC sports is nice but I can’t get it to work for more than 20 secs at a  time.

So the hunt is on for yet another IPTV supplier who is cheap enough again like £6.50 a month cheap.

As a back up I’ve reinstalled Torrent stream controller just for the test cricket, I spent today clicking away all day, UK Turks, Zem TV, Dc sports but nothing held up until sports mix, sadly a rubbish sd picture.

So the next list IPTV

R2V2 is an option find them on FB I’ve trialed the IviewHD package for 3 days and its fast, reliable and an excellent picture with EPG and plenty of channel options @ £11 a month !!

They also offer Light streams not sure on price at the mo but its the same set up as Future streams

Update: Elite streams some of the breakaway from fs has been solid and @ £30 for six months a bargain for full IPTV 👍👍 👌👌 💰 #Value
