    What pisses you off?

    As an electrician, I encourage you to get this changed at some point. If you do have any work done in your house then whoever does the work will tell you (or better do!) that you require a fuse board upgrade to meet the current regulations and be able to sign off the work.

    You can use an extension lead with a short lead on it to give you extra sockets behind the TV. Also you dont need to rewire the house to add extra sockets. Either mount a surface double socket next to the existing ones and spur of one of the existing sockets (very ugly, but works) or chase another socket into the wall and extend the ring. Personally I'd just throw a 4-way extension lead at it :)

    Not them energy saving pile of shite, they ain't worth a wank. I'm talking about LED lights (although some places do pedal them as energy saving bulbs) it's a completely different product. We fit LEDs everywhere now and it's either Phillips or Osram. They always last past our company warranty First, take it up with the place you bought it from as it might still be under their standard warranty (1 or 2 years normally depending on the store) after that the manufacturer. If the store has gone tits up then contact the manufacturer and explain what happened with store etc. Most of the time they listen to you but could take a little longer to process. In all cases, you'll still need a receipt to confirm where/when you got it.

    You're better off buying Phillips/Other names brands of LED lamps as a lot of them give a 5/10 Year Guarantee Also beware of the colour/warmth of the light:- 2700k/2800k - Incandescent colour, same colour you'd get if you bought a filament lamp 3000k - Warm White, more of a blueish tone in colour. Sometimes used in office lighting 4000k - Clinical white. You know that house at the end of the street that's bright as fuck and looks like a nightclub with UV strobe lights? These are the lamps!

  5. @djmagnifique I can highly recommend the Amazon Basics USB cables here - https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-Type-C-USB-Male-Cable/dp/B01GGKYR2O Although I use the Micro USB and the missus uses the Apple Lightening Spade, fast charging and very durable, I actually use the 1.8m version of the cable...because who doesn't love a good length!
  6. I'm the same as Halrick, I check every day out of habit! I spend most of my days in Discord now for various games (but mainly Dual Universe) and changed my in-game name in some games to Kael now Unfortunately people drift away and a lot of the old gang hasn't been seen in a long while

    Lag on Xbox one using Sky Fibre and wireless

    Have you tried a wired connection to rule out if it's the wireless at fault? It could be the wireless card inside the Xbox, or the Sky router Mine has been playing up recently on my laptop just randomly dropping and reconnecting, but the media PC behind the TV is wired and never has an issue...well apart from Sky being really shit recently! But that's a story for another day

    Monitor flashes when TV is turned on

    Because the TV isn't on when you boot up for PC it doesn't recognise it as a multi-screen setup. Once you turn it on (only having the PC Screen on to begin with) the PC/Graphics drivers try to reconfigure your setup for a multi-screen display and screws it up. With it being a TV and not a screen it acts differently/weirdly and the graphics card shits itself That's the easiest way I can describe it hah, if you have 2 monitors then you won't get this issue.
  9. Just buy it! http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/5025/ICEY__Steam_Link_Bundle/

    I'm so tempted to get this game, but I'm about to sink a lot of money into another game soon so can't afford now

    Good TV thread

    It just sucks that we'll have to wait another year to find out how it all turns out!

    How much would you sell this build for?

    I have to say that is the worst format for a list ever! But I work away a lot and bought a gaming laptop instead, much better than a dirty console!

    I've been watching StoneMountain64's videos of him playing PUBG and it looks like a lot of fun! But I don't think I can afford it
