Re: Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

Thanks Pete - Interesting that you've taken me from one pet peeve to another. I paid a substantial amount for a "smart" TV about 18 months ago; found out it wasn't all that smart. I could already do what little it did differently on my computer, and their idea of a "computer inside of a TV' fell a f...

SlingBox - What the Hell? Now can't access after 3 mos.

I reported in March the I had purchased a SlingBox so I could view news content from America. Great news, eh? Finally got it to work after a lot of trial and error.....seems like there hadn't been much going on on the websites since 2014, although they are still today selling the product.. At any ra...

Re: Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

I guess I didn't make myself clear. I want Truevisions to make these offerings on their TV Subscription. I already watch more than I need on my computer, on my phone and on my tablet. I just want to be able to turn on my TV and see something beside CNN and BBC

Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

Since moving here eleven years ago I have been quite pleased most of the time with the selections I receive in Thailand from Truevisions. Because I am an avid sports follower I count on Truevisions to give me a broad range of United States sports activities. Most of the time they do pretty well. As ...

Re: Problems with gmail?

I have an issue with this frequently with a couple of my friends. I'm pretty sure that the format of a message won't generate server errors, especially if it came to you sucessfully in the first place. I get errors with a couple of friends who spend a lot of time passing around jokes and stuff.....o...

Repairing white screen TV

I have a 19 month old Samsung 550OJ Smart series that just went white-screen today. Out of warranty and too big to lug around much. Does anyone have a recent similar experience that resulted in a successful repair?

Also is the repair center still open north of Index?

Thanks for any responses....

Re: 3BB Access to Google

We've been having trouble with BBB Gmail all afternoon and evening. Other things are also not loading or very slow to load. Hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow. Never had any trouble with them in the year we've had BBB.

Re: Commercial Party Houses Operating in Residential Developments

A "bit of noise" is not what this thread is about. We're talking about noise so loud you can close your house entirely and still barely hear your own TV. And Thais don't generally love noise like people think they do; they just put up with it because of their religion. An old lady in the little fish...

Big Boy - I'm waiting for the results from the lab. The Doctor took some samples and said they would contact me with the results.

Re: Commercial Party Houses Operating in Residential Developments

This sounds like it is going to be such a big problem the government is going to have to do something......whether they want to or not. They seemed to have addressed the issue as it relates to condos. It shouldn't take much to append the law so it addresses party houses. Maybe someone could figure o...

So if it stays active will it stay up front? Still waiting to hear on mine.

Re: Cancer Scare

Bangkok Hospital in Hua Hin has a dermatologist, Dr. Chanachai Memark. I went there last week for a black area on my left thumb. He is a very nice older man who I believe got his degree from the U.S. He speaks perfect American English.

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.
