Good on ya CB. These tablet things are lots of fun. I like keeping up with the newspapers like Stuff.co.nz and NZ Herald when I'm watching TV.

Gerald006 #35If this is any use to youDISH LTV model S7050 PVRaprox, $250 available at Harvey NormanI had one for 18 months and "lent" it to our son when we hot a half price deal from SKY. With this you can record to a hard drive (which you need to provide) and you can record to that while watching another channel . Only small problem here is there are 2 different frequencies, 1 that chan 1,2 7 and some others are on and another that chan 3 and some are on. Can;t remember them all off hand. The number of tapings you can store depends on your hard drive size Do a GOOGLE search for Dish S7050 pvr will tell you more. We found it very good,

I wonder what happened to V 21, she kept me entertained with her good info, she lost me when she went from a husband to a partner in a short time?I am off to Thailand in May and will look into The iPod thing.My question would be, if you have an up to date tablet, would you need a iPod?
The iPod is more for listening to music. Small and portable.
Tablet is more for Internet, Email, Docs, video, etc. Larger, better graphics and keyboard.

Just noticed your post 39 Wingspanner.Thank you for that.I have given up the idea of a recorder at present.The television programmes are so terrible there's little to record.I have a newer computer, so hope to Download some movies perhaps.Though I guess I'll have to comply with these new rules.Here's a question for you all.If I wanted to Download a movie, which website would I go to?
here is one.
Vee 21 must be in India or gone to meet her maker?

Can anyone help me with how to download the software that fills out my name and adress on forms and questionnaire things of the internet. I used to have it, but its disappeared.
You could look at this for Firefox.
A tablet is on the list, but hard to justify when I have a laptop.

Once you have used a good tablet it's hard to go back Cicero. My biggest problem is having to share it with my wife who would never use the PC or the laptop. Also because we live rural (no broadband) I have had to go wireless so I purchased a separate wifi wireless unit through Telecom that lets me wander anywhere in the house online, plus I can take it with me anywhere as long as I can plug into 240volts, great addition
