The Lounge

Re: The Lounge

We've now had some join requests about that sub-forum discussed earlier.

So for others interested in joining the separate "ECG" forum section;

 

  • It's for previously experienced Forumites, on this or the old forum, so you at least need to have had many posts on either forum... unless you have specialist knowledge.
  • It's for those who help others, occasionally or regularly.
  • We don't normally monitor for new requests and don't receive notification of that, so best to post a query elsewhere if interested, such as here in the lounge. (Please don't try to reach me by PM, but others involved may accept that.)

 

We aren't trying to be exclusive, as Geoff said it's for deeper discussion with those who've chosen to be more involved in technical and other MC related interests.

Re: The Lounge

Thanks GeoffD. I don't know how long the heading was displayed under the Community Forum but for some reason or other I only today noticed this group. My curiosity was aroused hence my post. But thanks for clearing that for me. Once again much appreciated.

Re: The Lounge

It is a group of us that found ourselves sort of part of the Field Triallists but were not actually field triallists.  We were then given an alternative "home" basically to get "rid of us" when MC tried to blow some life into the part of the community that was supposed to be dedicated to field trials of new decoders.

There was supposed to be more MC involvement but none of the materialised, and we were given very little "power" until recently when Optimist tried to blow some life into the group.

The idea was that we would end up getting some more technical support?

Advance warnings of sw updates, decoder upgrades, new decoders etc.

 

But sadly, that just does not happen. Unless we post nothing happens.

Re: The Lounge

First time I noticed this but when logging into the Forum I saw something about a special "experienced", I think it was Group belonging to this Forum. Has ten members. What's this about? Something we all should be joining or what's the purpose of this?

I used them often at one stage - especially for music DVDs that were not available locally - or were ridiculously expensive locally - and were always very impressed with their service and speed as well. But then items started "disappearing" after arriving in SA thanks to the Post Office...

Re: The Lounge

Hi @Beetle - I am away from home at the moment so can't check details. When I started using my box I was unable to find a web browser as well but more recently I did manage to find one in the app store - although it was not Chrome or anything familiar. I remember I used the voice control to search for "web browser" but can't recall the name of the one I managed to find. It is VERY clumsy to navigate though - hardly worth the effort - unless you maybe have a mouse or keyboard connected?

Re: The Lounge

Krugie, are you still here? 

My MiBox Media Player S arrived today. From what I can see, and understand, it is the latest model. Netflix, Showmax, You Tube work well but, although it's supposed to be Google Certified I cannot see where the Google Chrome app is? If it is? The device doesn't seem to have any Internet type access other than the Google Store which doesn't display Internet Search Engines. The store does have quite a few apps available on it but it's only these that can be downloaded to the device. What I had to do with Showmax. Fortunately, the Box does allow for Chromecasting so I can perhaps stream from the phone to the box and then the tv. Would prefer to have the Chrome/Firefox or whatever web browser I'd like to use available on the Box itself but if not available I do at least have a work around. 

Should you have knowledge on how I can download a Web Browser could you please advise me of the way to go about this. Thanks. 

But for R999 and after only a few minutes of testing I will say that, the browser thing apart, I'm quite happy with my experience of the Box. So far.
