Re: IPTV - The Best Around

These prices are far too high!!!! I used Projection Dreams when in Portugal (now in Spain) and you can get a much better service for 60€ a YEAR. Occasionally they have a sale at 60€ for 2 years. More channels, better quality. Based in Austria you can find them at

Re: UK Sports TV

Hi You need a decent speed to get HD and subtitles can be turned off! No need for a VPN in the UK (don't know where you got that from). I think the service is at least as good, if not better, than any of the providers based in Portugal and the back up from ACE (based in Hull, UK) is excellent! The p...

Re: UK Sports TV

Hi

I have had the subscription for 9 months now and it is fantastic. You can also take the box to and from the UK and use it there too! Reprogramming a MAG set top box is really easy so if you are with one of the rip off providers you can easily get a 24 hour trial to compare the service!!!

Re: UK Sports TV

Hi all

Projection Dreams far too expensive. Try ACE TV from the UK http://www.ace-hosting.net for all SKY and BT Sports and much, much more for £70 a year!!!!!!!! Great service and great HD quality with a list of channels to rival any other provider.

Licy

Try Le Cro opposite the Wolf too! Really good tapas like dishes and wine matches for your selection of tapas. Tell Hugo and Marina I sent you and that I recommend the lemon/oreo cheesecake! I was the official cheesecake taster there for a while!!!!!

Re: Wolf

Well mur1963 where is better value??

I agree with Licy the Agrentinian rib eye after the curried prawns as a starter are hard to beat. Will be back in CVO in a couple of weeks and will be frequenting the Wolf as it is BY FAR the best in CVO for a great steak.

Re: Cleaning a Bar-B-Que

Open out a bin bag and then spray the grid with oven cleaner on both sides - after an hour take it to the garden/soil area and rinse well with hose. Repeat if required.

Job done.
