    Car leasing or buying ?, first time driver

    A few years ago we went down the road of buying a cheap car for my son when he past, we got him an old Corsa. What you save on buying a cheap car you lose in the sky high insurance and forever at the garage. We only found out later it would have been cheaper to insure him for a 1.6 1.8 Sport no...

    Sensible Topic Depression?

    I think social media, life pressure to achieve, drugs all add to a rise in depression. I'm not saying these are the sole causes but they do contribute to a gradual rise mental health. Social media is probably one of the biggest reasons for the rise in suicide in today's kids.

    Manchester United thread

    My view on this is, the Utd job is far bigger than anyone anticipated. They say the club alone and it's size and history of Utd will attract the best players ?, wrong. It might have done in years gone by but football has moved on light years and with the likes of the Champion League and money...

    Pension advise and Serps

    So if you paid £78 for a year and it's now at £600 then I'm beginning to think my missus "thinks" she opted back out with the Prud, but actually didn't and carried on paying to a private pension and just didn't know.

She seems to think she only...

    VU+ Duo capacitor change

    Capacitor failure is one of the easiest to fix that's if you can locate the offending item. Normally there the barrel shape surface mount ones.

    Signal booster question

    A friend is using a fire tv stick in an bedroom extension but the signal keeps dropping out. If he uses it anywhere else in the house it's fine it's a black spot. He doesn't want cables and the electric running through to the extension is on a separate circuit so he can't use home plugs. I've...

    First, flash the Zgemma with a bootloader then OpenATV 6.2. Use a small stick say 500mb-1gb or a micro SD in a caddie. Make sure you formatting it with something like SD Formatter and not windows. Zgemmas can be a right tw*t to flash as there fussy as hell with aticks5
