    Hotel wifi help

    I do have a travel Sim card from Australia Post with 2gb of data (that's how I'm posting on here). I've been using wifi in all my other apartments/hotels during my trip with no issue except this hotel in Venice. I'll be moving on this morning (it's 6.40am here now) to the cruise port. Sick of hauling luggage!!!

    Hotel wifi help

    I've tried everything suggested, no success unfortunately. Anyway leaving Venice tomorrow to go on a cruise :) probably no wifi there anyway.

    Hotel wifi help

    Hi guys I'm getting this error when trying to connect to my hotels wifi (Venice, Italy). How can I resolve this issue? I'm using Chrome on a motorcycle G5s plus.Hotel staff not very helpful, wifi worked on the receptionists phone (iPhone I think he had) Thanks. The web page at http://connectivitycheck.gstatic.com/generate_204could not be loaded because: net::ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

    ME pre-amp upgrade completed

    Would it handle a 4ohm centre speaker in bridged mode? What is the power output?

    DVD movies to laptop/tablet

    I used Makemkv last night and file size was actually slightly bigger than DVD shrink

    DVD movies to laptop/tablet

    I managed to find my DVDshrink, worked well with my test (Toy Story 2). I need to buy a sd card for my tablet to see if it will play on it. Will also give MakeMKV a try to see which one works better or has a smaller file size. Thanks for the suggestions.
  9. Hi guys, hopefully I've posted this on the right sub forum. I just bought a USB DVD burner for my laptop and want to transfer some of my daughter's favourite DVDs so she can watch them when we go on holidays. In the old days I would use DVD shrink but not sure what the go is these days. Also I'd probably prefer to convert the DVDs so I can copy the files to my Samsung tablet and play them on that (storing on SD card). Can I have some suggestions on the simplest/quickest best to achieve this? Thanks.

    Arcam remote control

    It's working now! I cleaned the battery contacts but I actually think it started working after pressed the CD/DVD button!

    Mine is like this one below. Thanks for your offer though. I'll try cleaning the battery contacts.

    Doesn't look like it. Should i use isopropyl alcohol to try it?

    The view from my chair.

    At first glance I didn't even see the speakers! I thought they were column supports or something.
