I've seen an advert in Cyprus Today for the TV Club, BBC etc through your PC or for a little extra through your TV, 12.5 tl per month after installation. Sounds ok but just wondered if anyone has used it.

Hi



I have been using the TV club since January. Its very good. ITV 1,2,3 with catch up for a month. BBC 1, channel 4 and 5 and lots of radio problems. I had to upgrade to 1 meg to get the signal strength on the computer but no problems. Qwen and Paul very good always there to help you. No regrets one of the best packaged around

It's a VPN - virtual private network. that makes the BBC / ITV, etc THINK your computer is in the UK.. to get around the "not available in the UK message".



There's also my-private-network.co.uk and many other companies doing this.... including me.. but I'm much more expensive ;)

RE msg 6, spanna: (...)

=> Oh, spanna! You don't have a Notebook, because only Windoze users have a Notebook... You have a Mac PowerBook, MacBook or iBook etc - but never a...

You can connect your Mac to a (modern) TV set - all instructions here:

the TV club fitted me with a lead which plugs into my computer and my TV so I can watch the programmes on the TV . The picture is good and very little issues

Most modern tv's have a 15 pin socket which is the same as the blue socket on the back of a PC and PC monitor. Therefore a normal 15 pin PC monitor lead should be sufficient to connect your PC to TV. I got one from Amazon for under 5 and it works a treat. Some Notebooks now have HDMI sockets which make connection to a modern tv even simpler.



Regards



Paul

A couple of 'blond' questions.

Do you need to have a phone land line and would this work through a lap-tpo?

Hi



No phone line, works through your internet, I watch on laptop during the day and use the TV on an evening

For anyone missing local radio stations from the UK why not get an Internet Radio. It looks just like an ordinary radio but uses a wireless connection to your internet thus saving having to tie up your laptop/desktop. You can site them anywhere in the house/outside so long as you have a power socket and strong enough wifi signal.

They cost around 80 to buy but you can pick up every station being broadcast over the internet. Have a look at this one, its really easy to use.
