  1. Would you care to share the names of those apps? I have multiple free ones but none are consistently reliable.
  2. Yeah, Kodi's got a lot of issues, navigation being one of them.
  3. Have you had reliable service with them? I see Firestick Tricks list them as an option. I 'm considering recommendations from them and Troypoint. Can you use Paypal with them? I'm a little leery of giving my credit card to some of these APK's.
  4. I'm looking for anyone who is using or has used the Firestick streaming service formerly provided by the late Derek Young, and is interested in selling a firestick they are no longer using; or, alternatively, would be willing to share the names of the apps he was using, both free and paid, so I can program my own. I'm interested mostly in live tv. You can respond here or PM me. Thanks.
  5. I've seen several articles about CV referencing this German risk assessment institute. The gist of it is that you can pretty much touch anything and if you wash/sanitize your hands before touching your face, mouth, eyes, ears and mucous areas, there will be no transmission. Of course, that last part is apparently the hard part. https://www.bfr.bund.de/en/can_the_new_type_of_coronavirus_be_transmitted_via_food_and_objects_-244090.html
  6. I've pretty much been living like a hermit for the past 2 weeks, but I get the impression that if I do go out and interact some people are expecting me to wear a mask. First question, is there anywhere around here to source a useful mask? Secondly, any opinions on the actual utility of various masks? Internet research backs up old information that I had that the only real protective mask is the n95 which protects against aerosol type small droplet spray and some or most bacteria/viruses and which we are asked to reserve for health care workers. Surgical and other more penetrable masks are only advised for people who are actually sick (protects others from large droplet coughing/sneezing) or those caring at home for someone (better than nothing?). Somewhat recommended for long periods in a close environment (planes, etc.), but not with a lot of reassurance, and not recommended for just walking down the street. Also, most people I see wearing them touch them, adjust them, and often pull them down to converse with store clerks etc. which supposedly negates there purpose. Is it mostly a feel good type of thing?
  7. The basic translation was given in the post above mod-3's.
  8. SoxFan would you be willing to share the name of the paid iptv that you are using? You can pm me if you prefer. Thanks.
  9. A version of this warning was posted on TOB a day or two ago and since then deemed most likely to be BS. There are tests that show CV can live for up to 3 days on surfaces, not 12 hours. Most viruses and bacteria thrive in warm conditions, that's why hospitals and medical facilities are kept so cold. Viruses spread in winter because everyone is inside together. When it gets warm people spend time outdoors, not so close, and more importantly, in the sun. UV kills viruses. The virus thrives in the human body which has a temperature of close to 100. To think an ambient temp of 85 will kill it makes little sense.
  10. The last few times I used the taxi stand there I noticed they had the same portable chip reader everyone uses sitting on the counter, but I was using cash so I didn't try it out.
  11. You can buy propafenona (propafenone/rythmol) at any farmacia without a prescription, if that works for you.
  12. Not looking for a diagnosis here, just looking for a recommendation for someone who can diagnose it for me.
  13. I have an old pool with some blotchy discoloration on the floor tiles. My pool guy has cleaned what was a green/blue stain down to a light gray discoloration which either does not come off or immediately returns. I need someone knowledgeable enough to tell me if it can be cleaned, killed or if it is some sort of permanent etching damage. Thanks.
  14. Used to be the lawyers office on the corner of Galeana. Simultaneous post.
  15. Ok I went by Steren and told them what I was looking for and he showed me a Steren brand that he said was the same (he didn't try to upsell me the more expensive model which I appreciated). After I installed it I'm getting 30 t0 40 megs in the back room and 45 plus in the front rooms, which is good enough for me. Now to see how reliable it is.
  16. Bedbug, I stayed at a rental that had a Google mesh system and it dropped out frequently and I ended up connecting directly to the modem wifi (it's possible that not turning off the modem wifi caused interference). Do you recommend a particular brand?
  17. CG I probably didn't state my observation regarding the wireless properties completely. The n enable button wasn't greyed out, but there was a disable button there and that along with what Task Manager reports makes me think it is connecting on n ( I hadn't had my coffee yet when I wrote that). On another subject the Ilox techs recommended an ASUS AC 1300 router as the best. Amazon has it but Steren's site doesn't. Do you or anyone else have a router recommendation?
  18. Ok, I got into the modem page and it shows my optical level at -17.xx dbm. With ethernet connection I got a fairly steady 65 + megs at the modem. I tested repeatedly over several test sites ,Fast, Ookla, ATT , couple of others, all about the same except Speedof.me which was around 30. I test around 45 megs 6 feet away on wifi. If we connect 2 laptops that drops significantly. If we have one laptop on wifi and the other on ethernet the ethernet reading stays in the 60's, the wifi reading is pretty low.
  19. CG, yes that is the modem and they just brought it. When I reported that the properties of the wireless adaptor highlighted 802.11 a/b/c apparently that is the first item at the top of the grid and is always highlighted when you open it up; I attempted to select 802.11n but there was no enable button, so I checked task manager and it indicates I am using n, so I assume I am. I am going to try to log in to the modem address today and check the receive level nos. as Tom suggested above. I tried yesterday but I couldn't even find the Ilox connection so I will have to move my computer to the same room. I have no problem improving wifi capability if that's the problem. My concern is that when we held a laptop next to the modem the nos. were good, when we moved it a meter or so away they dropped drastically. Another concern is that my TelMex nos. bounce around all the time, but I've never seen activity like this, they change every second sometimes dropping from 60mbs to 0. I am also going to hook up the ethernet cable and verify the speed at the modem again. Does anyone know of a speed test that runs longer than a few seconds? I want to add that I have no complaints against Ilox personnel, they have all been very friendly and professional and responsive. They assure me that they will take care of any issues, and I believe them, it just may take a little time if a router doesn't solve the problem.
  20. CG the modem is a GPON ONO FiberHome model AN5506-04-GG My wireless device is currently highlighting 802.11 a/b/g with a value of 802.11 a/b/g. I can also select 802.11 n/ac Is there a place on the modem where I can look up the standard or do I need to log in to the modem's IP?
  21. Ilox installers showed up today and installed our service. We signed up for the Triple 50 package at the outset even though we didn't need tv or phone because that seemed the fastest way to get them here, and that apparently caused a small scheduling problem because they would schedule us for an install and then not come out because "there was no tv" and we would tell them we don't want tv and we don't need a refund and they would reschedule us and then not come out because "there was no tv". This happened 5 times and I then contacted Tom Kessler and they showed up the next day. This is something some of you may want to watch out for. The install took about an hour and a half and they showed us 62 megs on a speed test. As soon as they left the speed started bouncing around from 60 to 0. We contacted the office and the techs came back and worked on it using an ethernet cable and a phone seemed to get the modem at a solid 65-70, but the wifi still sucked. They recommended getting a router and I have no problem doing that if it solves the problem. They said they guaranteed between 65 and 70, anything close to that would be ok with me after TelMex's 3.5. The modem they supplied was the larger black one.
  22. I have added USTVNow to Firestick. I did it a few years ago so I don't remember the details but I followed the instructions at one of the many Kodi sites and it was relatively easy and it works fine. You will have to "sideload" Kodi to Firestick using ES File Explorer or something similar. The Kodi addon is not supported directly by USTVNow but by USTVNowPlus, but any issues I have had have been caused by and resolved by USTVNow through my account with them. You will need an account directly with USTVNow and as of the time I installed it, you had to have a paid account to extend to multiple devices.
