The odd thing about us TV addicts-is no matter how many channels you have viewing selection still comes down to the main 4- and there offspring- with the odd bit of 5 thrown in.

Ghost Hunters is on CBS Reality at 3pm and 4pm Saturdays.

I actually buy Radio Times, just so I can see what's on easily. My local evening paper doesn't give listings for BBC HD (which often has some interesting stuff on it).

That's the problem though Geoff. I'm NOT a TV addict! So haven't a clue whats on where, even on the normal freeview channels, let alone the extra 5000 channels I've just acquired!  I'm just used to dowloading the shows I want and watch them via other means. I may just stick to that if it all gets confusing!

09/11/2012 at 14:01

5000 is a big dish

OH is happy -there is Primark in Spain-we can move


09/11/2012 at 14:01

Do sky send you out a monthly magazine, or anything like that?

09/11/2012 at 14:03

No-you can subscribe to one-there are tv listings on line or mags in weekend papers


09/11/2012 at 14:09

Right. I'll buy a paper copy. I prefer the book to online.

Found that CBS reality, so have popped that in my favourites. Good Lord. All this in the name of entertainment.

And now it says I have no satellite signal. What have I done.

Life was so much easier in the last century-no 24 hours tv, 3 channels, power-cuts -people used to talk to each other

09/11/2012 at 14:21

Becks-you have bust it

Unplug it and start again-unless it is raining hard?

09/11/2012 at 14:23

'Little house' has freesat, I think. Not that OH can get much he wants to watch....

Anyway he's back at work- thought they finished lunchtime Fri? Apparently the shoes I sent with him also squeaked!! No I really didnt put in the definitely 'sqeaky' pair, but he wasnt convinced. Sounds as if trip was worthwhile, but 2 x 5hr train journeys wouldnt be my choice.

Have put into his mind to check if anything 'storecupboard' he wants & tell me tonight. The usual trick is to grumble that I didnt buy it en-route, when I stop at a big Tesco for the paper. So we then have to troll round town for it, or worse brave his local supermarket on a Saturday. That is one place you dont try visiting at 10am on a Sunday either, using a car! Unlike round here, where folks dont seem to get up that early, there it's bedlam! We tried it once to get things for a car picnic planned to have when out walking, but never again!

It is within easy walking distance if desperate. I often pop in en-route for home as better than our local one! Especially now as ours has horrendous parking probs with them extending the store. Their petrol station better access too.

Must crack on, coffee break over. J.

Wiggled some wires. Back on now. I am in Geek heaven!! Programme about Pyramids on National Geographic. I may have to ask for a membership form for the 'TV-Addict' club.

09/11/2012 at 14:31

"Wiggled some wires"-is that tv engineer talk?

You know where to come for viewing advice of course

Jo -you spoil him-men can do shopping you know

09/11/2012 at 14:36

You may want to get a bigger TV, especially for HD stuff.

You can never have a TV screen that is too large.

This will not fit in my front-room -I asked



09/11/2012 at 14:47

My bank balance says otherwise Gary. He did leave a HD lead for when I upgrade my TV though.  

But would it fit in your garden Geoff?

09/11/2012 at 14:48

That one is meant for Summer use. It has an extra bright screen to enable you to see the action clearly in bright sunshine. It is the ideal accessory for any garden.

It can be used together with the WII Fit tennis game, so you can play along, and imagine you are actually playing at Wimbledon (while really being in your back garden).

You can also use it with WII Golf, and a real club and real golf balls.

You can get small HD TVs for around £120, can't you. But those are really too small. I was in Sainsburys this morning and they were preparing a display just by the entrance, with a huge pile of 40inch TVs. The idea is to buy one with your weekly shop. That's what people will be buying for Christmas.

09/11/2012 at 14:54

It might fit in the garden of my Spanish hacienda.

I wonder if Spanish broadband is in English-will definitely need a Sky dish

09/11/2012 at 14:57

Hello again

New Tv sounds good. We only have very small and medium size. Becks I think I would wiggle some wires to. Just tried to do quote and failed dismally

I also like to bash things with a little hammer, also works if not electrical

Finally planted bulbs. in bottom of box found pack of gladiolus Byzant??? so popped them into shrub pots that are long and thin.

Next door but one have just had a very large delivery of shale. Wonder what they are up to now?

Other stuff - charcoal burners are doing their stuff on the hills.

Those T-shirt adverts in the corner are really weird, there's a hamster now!!

The Spanish version of Strictly Come Dancing features hot senoritas....

Someone is looking cheesed-off this afternoon
