Just an attempt at humour, a poor one granted, but what happened to yours?smiley - tongueout

Yes, I blew the HD, it had all the baby pictures from the hospital on it too. I'm hoping it's going to be recoverable, but we'll see when I take it in. I don't bother transferring from Video cos of the poor quality I just download the DVD's instead! Shhh! Don't tell VM.

Hope you get well soon, the nipper has just had a touch of a nasty bug hope it's not that one.

Ok, I better let you get off since your eyes will be hurting with that big screen.smiley - tongueout

You never answerd my question:-
WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH?????

Before I go why didn't you save your files pics onto disk oh well. And another thing When I've coppied my VHS onto HDD I done it in XP then sp onto disk better copy that the VHS, I normal go out and buy the DVD unless I can't get it I've copied it unless it has CP=copy protected. Also how have you managed to put yourself eg your username on your friends list??????????????????

Yes your not seeing things! By the way Happy New Year 2009.

Yes please answer post (5) All the questions..
I always use Plain skin can't use any other boots you out. I still at Dave's but his Email addy's terrable, try and send just sits there loading! Try and read sent/received mail does the same, I've rebooted it so many times that I give up. And if you try and send and it dont go end up saving it in draft then try again, why is it doing it? You seem to know quite alot about digi boxes you must be well educated. This will be the first thread I'll have posted since last year. Did you manage to get your digital pics off your hard drive are have you lost them? Should always make back up files on disk. So did you have a good Christmas and new year? I did, had a great new year down at The White Horse pub near Ironbridge (and I don't drink alcohol) this just froze for a miniute smiley - grr Another question does VM know we come on here via emails it must be sending a signal some how, who came across that we could get on here via emails? And how come we can't surf VM web sites? Right I'm going lol.

Happy New Year to you too.smiley - smiley

I haven't used my box for a while now, kept freezing on me too, still use the Plain skin though. I have read that people are finding it harder and harder to use h2g2 with the old TW boxes, and TVEmail are being phased out. New accounts don't get emails.

I haven't managed to recover my photo's yet, gonna have to take the HDD into the shop to see if they can be recovered when I get chance, been a bit busy though over the hols.

TW knew we used h2g2, because we were reported by 2 users from this site, who started off using the TW box then got PC's. They tried cutting access off but we got around that. You can't surf VM sites because you're only supposed to be able to use the walled garden (Interactive) section of the old TW software. It's only through a loophole that you can access h2g2. There used to be a time when TW used to turn the firewall off and you could surf the whole internet, that was fantastic. Not anymore though, and it looks like when emails go so will this last loophole.smiley - sadface


You're Snot?!

Ok, from post 5. You don't know whether you have anything in common with anyone here, because you haven't spoken to everyone here. I know what you mean about everyone being better educated, I don't think I know of a site where they have more people who went to uni posting.smiley - erm Don't let it bother you though, just don't get involved in the heavy debates, just remember you don't have to post to everything you read.smiley - smiley And I don't hate you, you can be very annoying at times but I don't hate you.


Why didn't I save the files? Because I never got around to it, I usually always back up my pictures and important files, not to disc but online so I can retrieve them again in case of trouble, but my HDD failure was sudden and it was quite new and I hadn't got around to it yet. I've learnt my lesson though and have now backed up all the photo's I have got left. Hopefully I haven't lost those for good though!

As for transferring VHS to DVD I don't usually bother, cos VHS is usually very poor quality, so I just download the DVD from the internet, quicker and less hassle. You can get programs on the internet that allow you to copy DVD's even if they're copy protected, dunno why they won't let you back up your DVD anyway, since you just need to look at them wrong and they don't work anymore.

I forget how I put myself on my friends list, neat trick though, eh? I'll look for it if you want it?


You're Friend?!

If you're using the on screen keyboard there is a limit, not sure about using a normal keyboard there wasn't when I last used mine.

Hmmm not sure about discs being 2 hours long, as I've got films that last longer. I use dual layer discs but mainly for games, with films I just compress them to make them fit on normal discs. If I make the dvd's myself I can usually get a whole TV series on one disc.smiley - biggrin

Funnily enough I'd rather have a smiley - cat too, though I hate cats.smiley - winkeye

The little one is adorable, and not too many sleepness nights. Starting to teeth now though, poor thing!
