General Discussion Area / Humax HDR FOX T2
« on: 22 February 2014, 20:35:02 »
We've had this for a few years now, no problems till last night. We watched something that'd obviously had a bad reception when recorded, badly pixilated  at times ..... anyway, when we tried to delete it, it's locked up - showing *deleting in the corner of the screen.
I've tried the usual turn off & on ...... didn't work. Turned off all night, turned on this morning ...... didn't work. Downloaded what I think is the latest software 1.02.32 to a pen drive (didn't note what was already installed  :-[), stuck pen drive into the back (broke the HDMI cable  ???) (replaced HDMI cable :y ) turned Humax back on, it booted up off the pen drive, it installed restarted and ................ didn't work!

Any sensible suggestions please

Omega General Help / Rear blind
« on: 22 February 2014, 15:20:18 »
While I was giving my Omega a clean I wanted to clean the rear window, but the blind seems to like being a blind & is staying put. I've had the blind out once .... ages back .....
Is there an easy way to get to the motor to help it? I'm guessing not .... but thought I'd ask anyway.

This is what happens when you leave a car on the drive without using it for months.  :(

General Car Chat / trim removal tools
« on: 11 February 2014, 20:10:07 »
Does anyone have any of these? http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5039.m570.l1311.R1.TR10.TRC0.A0.Xcar+trim+&_nkw=car+trim+removal+tool&_sacat=0&_from=R40

I've just ordered a pair of the pliers type the other day, but was also considering a set of the plastic pry bar type. They seem to range form 15 piece down to 4 or 5.

Any views one way or the other?  :-\ :-\ :-\

Glad to see they've been found safe & well, but apparently they'd gone there to get away from the wet UK weather .... can't knock their thinking  ;D  ;D  ;D


I wonder what Mummy & Daddy do to afford to spend 30000 a year on edumafacation  ???  ???  ??? That's earning c50k gross just for school fees             ???  ???

It's on at the moment ..... not seen it before but heard of it. And they say there's not an under class ..........  :-X :-X :-X :-X

One idiot got out of gaol in the morning & was shop lifting later in the day.

General Car Chat / battery drain
« on: 07 January 2014, 14:02:26 »
Not an Omega, but a Fiat Seicento. Re the Halfords battery thread, my daughter's car has had some starting problems. The battery checks out OK .... two different testers.

The car's using 185mA with nothing running at all ... key in my pocket, doors closed  (boot light goes off  ;)), no alarm fitted. Any opinions as to whether that's too high or not  :-\  :-\ before I start pulling fuses.

TIA

General Car Chat / Halfords batteries
« on: 30 December 2013, 15:23:42 »
My daughter's car needs a new battery. It's not started a couple of times now, always as she needed to be off somewhere, so the car's been jump started & off she's gone. Her journeys are then far enough that there's been enough charge to restart it to come home. Anyway ... I thought I'd take the easy route of pricing up a battery from the comfort of my armchair & see how much Halfords want. It's only a 40Ahr battery but they want 85  :o  :o  :o  :o It's cheaper at the main Fiat dealer. My local friendly motorfactor has just priced me a Yuasa at 32+vat  :y  :y  :y

Flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie ...... Amazing how time flies.

Lockerbie used to just be a sign I went past on the A74 & a place I once got stuck at for 2 hours on the train ..... I could never have imagined what Lockerbie would signify in later years.  :(
