Re: DVLA has not sent my V5 log book before trip

We did Bari to Patras with Minoan Lines. Again, nothing was asked for. Of course, we might have just been lucky.

Re: DVLA has not sent my V5 log book before trip

Hi we travelled through France Switzerland, Italy, and Greece on our way here 18 months ago, and no one looked twice at our (Jersey registered) car. x

Re: Internet in smaller villages

We live in a rental property in a village a few minutes away from Neapoli. The house had had a landline before and it was quite straightforward to get both landline and reasonable Broadband (took about 2 weeks) . As others have said, I think the key is for the house to have had a landline already. .

Re: Licence to watch BBC I Player

Thanks for that. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Wonder if they are hoping that people are going to panic and rush to buy a licence?

Re: Licence to watch BBC I Player

Thanks, that would work, as my Stepmother a( licence holder) in Jersey doesn't use the internet, Would the BBC be able to tell that the wifi being used was not at the address on the licence though?? (Big Brother!!) x

Licence to watch BBC I Player

As from September 1st the BBC have said that anyone watching I player will need to have a TV licence. Are there other people on here who use a proxy server to do this, and if so, any ideas on what to do? My Proxy is up for renewal and I don't want to pay only to find out I can no longer watch BBC Ca...

Re: Proxy BBC I player

In case it is of help to anyone else. I contacted the Proxy company about this problem. They have sent me new Proxy details, as the BBC had Blocked the Original Proxy. They have also given me 10 days free because of the inconvenience. . Louise

Re: Proxy BBC I player

That is very helpful and reassuring that your VPN worked on your PC. Makes me hope that my problem is temporary. I do have a paid VPN, "Proxy Solutions" and as I said,it is working ITV player, just not BBC. . Hopefully, my Tech Guru (a 21 year old I used to work with!) is going to Skype me...

Re: Proxy BBC I player

I am totally lost with Technology, but I only have the Proxy on my laptop, and in fact access it through the firefox browser. I then choose I player through the search bar, so I may be wrong, but don't think that is an app? Thanks for your advice though. I am hoping that if I try again tomorrow it w...

Proxy BBC I player

Hi, is anyone else with a proxy server having problems with accessing the BBC I player site? It is telling me that I can only access if in the uk, but ITV player with the Proxy is fine? This has only happened today.

Re: Filmon.com.

Dinksy, exactly the same thing happening to me, and the same time frame. I have no objection to the adverts, just the fact that I get a blank screen afterwards. No solution I'm afraid, but you are not alone in this. x

Another vote for Dimitri in Agios. He helped us find and buy our car, and scrapped our old one. x
