Re: GLS Express parcel delivery (not)

Steve, when eventually I found my small package which was delivered by Royal Mail and Gls, it was likewise at the Easy Go Shop near the Chemist. When I asked why they signed for it, they stated they didn’t and it was in a large bag with other parcels! I tackled them on the subject of being a Parcel ...

Re: GLS Express parcel delivery (not)

Ordered a small item from Ireland, for my car the other week. Asked for tracking etc, as I thought, so small would have it delivered directly. WRONG. They used Royal Mail, who then used GLS here. After numerous phone calls to the supplier, CTT and Emails, I found it had been delivered last week to a...

Re: Delivery carrier for Amazon

I purchase a lot of items from Amazon and over the years, the delivery has got worse. Initially they had a lovely Lady making the deliveries and knew where to find me. I always made sure I had my phone details on my order. However they then used Seur, courier company, who must be the worst ever! Sin...

Re: UK Sports TV

Following the recent posts on this subject, I took out a Days subscription to see what was offered and quality. I use a Mag Box and have an average of 5 mgb download via a SIM card Router. This was an easy set up by adding their Portal, sending the MAC address and Bingo. Yes I did get a lot of chann...

Re: Nowo phone & broadband

I am thoroughly cheesed off with MEO. The internet keeps dropping and I am badgered by agents who have very limited technical knowledge trying to sell me a so called improved service which will tie me in for another two years. Does anyone know what lines or cables Nowo are using to get their much g...

Re: Cameras not working

I do miss them. Health issues and exchange rates mean I won't be coming in October. Hope they are restored soon. ETA. OOps. Sorry. Cam 2 IS working - just very slow to load. Sorry you can't make your visit, however, to cheer you up, have a look at beachcam.meo.pt There are excellent views of our be...

Is this what DVBRO was referring to ?
Yep, that's the one.
The App I downloaded from Apple, free, was Meo Beachcam.

Web Cams

At last we have moved in to the 21st Century!
Most impressed with the new Web Cams covering the Algarve and the west Coast, launched recently.
About time the provider of the ones in the Square upgraded theirs. Great App with great resolution.
Well done Meo and affiliates, excellent job.

Re: Rua Do Cerro - arghh

I have never heard about this problem with Air Conditioning units. I think, they have been turned off as they really expensive to run and some renters leave them on 24/7! I personally, living here for eleven years, don't have them. I use fans, which work a treat. Even in the extremely hot conditions...

Re: Webcam

Roy, there might be a strong possibility that the operators might be moving in to the 21 st century and upgrading the Camera and streaming us live pictures!
At least we get a refreshed picture on Webcam 1 now. There's an improvement!

Re: WIFI in villa

Sorry, but I am sitting here reading this chuckling as I read your post, Maccasa. Bad news that you have had all these problems, however it does not surprise me at all. They are all the same, full of promises, only too keen to take your money, but don't give a damn about service or what trouble you ...

Re: WIFI in villa

I have tried all the suppliers here over the past 10 years. Firstly although I get numerous promises, because we don't get cable and frankly, never will and are on the fringe of a 4 g Area, no one could supply a decent service to suit my Business and personal requirements. I have had promises of 20 ...
