The browser used to use silverlight which died a long time ago.

Stupid question, but have you got the latest version of the app?

I was hoping you would chip in Mr X😀 It was maybe a couple of years ago I installed it on my laptop and every time I open it, it says checking for updates which occassionaly it does but more often than not it doesn't so i've always assumed it is the latest version.

Not used the windows app, Im afraid. The only suggestions on google are update your graphic and sound card drivers and try changing the monitor resolution

Aye SkyGo is a pile of pish on Windows.

Doesn't run if you don't have the latest version or if you have things like snipping tool open.

Sky too worried about piracy. They are still stuck in the past with a device limit because they don't actually want people to use it.

Take the drive out and put a few drill holes through it.

 

OR if you want the laptop intact

Choose Reset this PC in Windows, choose delete all files. Then create a new account and run something in this article.

I had a strange thing happen yesterday.

I use a Chromebook and after a long session on the Covid19 thread I closed it and did some gardening. 

A couple of hours later I was on again and tried to use Gmail but got a 400 error.

Long story short, one of my browser permission  settings had barred access to Gmail. Changed and all ok.

I didn't do it.    WTF?

Chromonavirus?

Last time I tried, none of them were particularly good.

I don't believe there's that many so probably worth just trying one and see how it goes.

Bluestacks was generally considered the best but apparently Remix is also good

Not really a question, just wondering if HP actually sell any ink cartridges for their printers anymore. Got one that must be at least 15 years old and have had no problems, but have always bought their own brand ink as I don't use very much and it seemed worth the extra to guarantee it wouldn't mess up the printer. Just looked at what they're asking now, £136.99 for just the black cartridge without the 3 colour one! Got refilled ones for £19.69 the pair from Stinkyink, decent reviews.

HP always ramp up prices of ink/toner for obsolete models.
They hope you'll end up buying their flimsy plastic shite printers instead.
Epson and Canon aren't quite as bad.

Looking for help. All the files on my wife’s user profile on a MacBook have been deleted somehow while everyone on my separate profile is in tact.  Does anyone have any idea How his has happened and how to recover these files? They are not in the trash.

My IPTV suppliers host got busted the other day, hes starting up again but in all honesty his streams for the Scottish club TVs weren't the best and never worked alot of the time. Has anyone got a subscriber with a good Club TV section?

No. Not any more. Pretty sure theyve been targetting those lately

I do know someone who can replace your supplier for a reasonable price

I'll maybe give you a PM at a later date, going to see what this guy comes up with.

I’ve zero experience with them, but need a budget time lapse or video camera to set up and record overnight. Got a leak at work and can’t figure out where it’s coming from each night so need at least 12 hours of footage.

Dont know if a second hand GoPro is best or if there are any better alternatives? Assume I’d also need a big SD card to get a full 12 hours?
