trouble is .. the internet is not a very good alternative to satellite!
can't get HD, it breaks, the front-ends are C.r.a.p.

Fingers crossed for the morning, will check when I wake up, if it's bad I'll let the missus sleep in while I think of a plan B for Corrie & E'nders etc. At least I have few hours to put together a solution from the various computer components I have in the cupboard in the garage.

So... the world ends this night? Just watched this nice BBC4 nature film from Iceland, so much great stuff on BBC. And would definitely like to keep ITV as well. Very curious about how things will look tomorrow ...and how much I may have to spend, can't risk missing my dose of Poirot & Japp lol

Good morning to all. I've been following this forum for the past 2 months. Very informative, so many thanks .
Night shift tonight, I've been praying for the last 3 hours for fringe benefits.
2F is on the borderline here. Lets hope we all have some luck with 2e. Beer is still in the fridge - I daren't look ;o)

I just had a little dose and had a bizarre dream that we wake up tomorrow to find 2E UK beam crashing into the Canaries on 90 cm dishes due to an unplanned hotspot. I am now awake again and back in reality :-(
