I have a Nova-T (single) tuner card and it works very well as a DVB tuner.

Should these ideally be kept a max / min / inbetween when not in use?

Turn them down to the minimum torque. This reduces the stress on the spring and stops them going out of calibration. :y

I think I recall hearing that it expires at the end of this year?

May be thinking of something else...

Also, make sure they understand that you want 4x5 litres. They gave me a 20 litre drum in a box on a trolley and I didn't look what was in the box until I'd got it to the car ::) .. by which time the parts department were out to lunch >:(

Didn't cost much different, it's just much more convenient in 5l containers.

I'd report it to the police now, get a reference number and explain that you're waiting for a reply and will want to progress things if that doesn't bear fruit.

id be reporting it to the Police, itsanother way of forcing the companys hand, "leaving the scene of an accident"

Damned right. They left the scene of the accident and it was only a passer-by that has taken any steps to alert you to it, by the sound of it.

I also got an auto darkening helmet which REALY helps....

Any recommendations? I think this has to be my next welding related purchase. I'm convinced it'd be easier if I wasn't trying to do it one-handed while holding a  mask to my face.

If MiG, with practice, you can weld rust!!

Just don't repair your stainless exhaust, wondering why you're making a sh!te job of it, and, only when putting the final few blobs of weld on the internal baffle to hold it on, realise that you've got no shielding gas coming out :-[

The Omega is specced to use such a wide variety of oil grades it probably doesn't matter too much.

But with winter coming the 0w40 will be better for cold starts, in theory (thinner when cold).
