  1. Did you speedtest with everything turned off apart from the testing device? 12down seems a tad grim with 9up.
  2. My daughter has a KIA Sportage GTLine and they tweak the maps at the annual KIA service. It also has internet connectivity so you can tweak. Tether your mobile and get all the updates and live services (Like GoogleMaps) on the move. Free. https://www.birchwoodgroup.co.uk/kia/technology/connected-services/
  3. Though you're getting 34mb (what are you using to test it btw) it doesn't mean you're getting 34mb at the Box end. Always better to hard wire data to any media streaming device rather than wifi. Get your router over behind the TV it'll run a lot better.
  4. Recording on a SKY+ box is subscription only. Suggested above you can get a Freesat recorder box that had 2x RF which allows recording max 2 while watching a 3rd. 2x Sat + 1xRF https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/323026787556 If you ever saw a Sky+ recorder box recording without subscription, it was an illegal box.
  5. I agree, the box works well as a booster. Mine is never fully shut down, just in sleep mode.
  6. That might just be with Sky boxes. My Humax box will record 2 things while I watch a 3rd.
  7. Hehe yes that can be a tad challenging too, I fit any extension wires before screwing the faceplate to the backbox/wall
  8. I fit both types, the filtered face-plates from a tech's pov are bit, fragile, in the way they fit. It's a slotted fitting. The pre 2018's at least have the 20mm screws holding everything together. I know another tech, he prefers to actually remove the plastic pushdowns inside and terminate straight onto the IDC type connection left behind. Yes the new ones look nicer and more streamline, but one flick of a vacuum cleaner and they release. All you need to do Davyboy, is leave the cable that goes from the BT socket to the BT fiber box connected to the Faceplate, unplug it from the fiber box. Remove everything else pertaining to the old BB setup. On the back of the new router there will be ONE socket that is correct size for the RJ11 (router to bt) lead. Don't plug the router cable into one of the 4 (there's usually 4) network sockets on the back of the router. It will physically fit but you will see a Network socket is larger than the BB connection socket. That's all you have to do really.
  9. Is it just a short term thing, shifting files while you format? USB sticks are cheap, I bought a 16gb one for about a fiver off eBay.
  10. I'm not an odd job man, every job has its professional, I expect and require a professional service and will be paying for that. There's no corrolation between telecommunications and the job I require. You don't have to take it to the main dealer for work, but if you want to keep the warranty up you can't have it serviced by your grandad.
  11. It's likely your PC. Coiling Cat5 together won't make a great deal of difference to the cables capability, as sometimes I coil Cat5 in 8, 16, 24 and 48 cable bundles (and more).
  12. ...or you can cast using a WDTV box, as do I now and again.
  13. I would, if in my van, but into my wife's £31k SUV I want a specialist. Having a pop myself would probably also endanger it's 7yr bumper to bumper warranty.
