Re: HomePro / Thai Watsadu

Surprised no-one mentioned the new Blu Port Mall. I enjoy the change in flavor from Market Village, and I Iike the Bangkok personality of the place. Personally I think their homegoods section is great....much better than Thai Watsadu which is just around the corner from our place. That is more for b...

Re: Air con operating manual

I haven't figured mine out after ten years. I just put it on the snowflake and set the fan to the icon that looks like a volume control going up and down. There are other clues I could give you but it would spoil the fun of trying to figure out who on earth designed the "human" interface.

Re: SlingBox

Update on Chromecast: Received the original Chromecast day before yesterday. There is a newer Chromecast Ultra out that may be of interest for those of us with "smart" TVs (my smart tv is still dumb as a rock but different story). The Chromecast did it's job and was pretty easy to hook up. A warning...

Re: SlingBox

HI Paul - We lived in Copperopolis. North to Stockton's southern end and Hwy 4 east about 45 minutes. No problem if you need help....I'm pretty sure by then I'll know more than I do now. Just received a Chromecast do-dad from Lazada; something else to play with.

Re: SlingBox

Hi Paul - Their website is SlingBox.com, You can see all the videos you want on YouTube. 1 - You have to have the "SlingBox" located at the premise you are sending the signal from. It doesn't matter what TV provider as long as you have a set top box or similar to hook up the SlingBox to. It would he...

SlingBox

For those few of us Americans who are hoping for a better solution to TV watching: I purchased a SlingBox 500 and had it shipped to a friend in California. It's been a struggle, but after five days of angst we finally got it to work. I am streaming a Golf Channel broadcast from Northern California t...

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

?? thought I just sent a reply here??

O.K. at the traffic light near Esso Gas station, not the Tessaban. If you are headed north turn at the light and it's the second building on the right.

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

Just asked the boss.......it is on the street with the traffic light....not the Tessaban one, the other one. If you're headed north turn left. Second building on the right hand side of the street.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

1) Adopt a vehicle code which is a primary tool in establishing proper driving procedures and etiquette. 2) Publish said vehicle code, section by section, in newspapers and on television as a public service, and keep doing it for a very long time. 3) With thousands of policemen on the Country's payr...

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

"Can you tell me a little more about this " surgery". Is there an incision with sutures, or is the hook just inserted through the (anaesthetised I hope) skin? I was hoping to find a doctor who would treat me with an injection of steroid. I have had this injection before on another finger, and there ...

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

I've used Dr.Nut who has a clinic just off Petchkasem across from the downtown gas station. Sorry I don't have better directions but if you have access to a Thai partner or friend they could find him easily. Dr. Nut has done three "surgeries" for trigger finger on my hands. He does it quickly and pa...

Re: IPTV - SWITCH FROM TRUEVISIONS?

You have already decided failure is the best you can expect from an industry that has given you Smart Phones, Laptop Computers, Tablet Computers, mobile telephones that can provide not only telephone service, but TV service, act as computers, and also serve...

IPTV switch from True Visions

I'm contemplating finally dumping Truevisions.....looks like they aren't going to carry the current week's PGA events from USA. Looking at LITEIPTV but don't know a lot about hooking it up to anything. I have a six month old Samsung Smart TV which looks like it will do the trick. I'm waiting for a L...
