    Can't Enter Bank Details In On-line Order

    I've just had two successive instances where I was unable to complete an on-line order. I was able to complete every other field - name, address, etc - except those for my bank account details which exhibited no response when I tried repeatedly to enter the requisite digits. This was using both...

    How To Stream Videos To My Tv

    I want to be able to watch films on my TV as and from whom I please. I’m not interested in the all-singing-dancing prepackaged offerings as come Roku, Apple TV, etc. I thought I had found the solution in a Samsung BD-H6500 blu-ray player which, as well as playing DVDs and offering its own...

    How To Watch Imdb Movies On My Tv?

    I want to watch IMDb movies on my HDTV (Panasonic TX-P42G20B). I have a 'smart' blu-ray player (Samsung BD-H6500), connected to my TV, and an iMac. My iMac has an ethernet connection to my router (Technicolor TG582n) which has a wi-fi connection to my blu-ray player. The blu-ray player...

    Quicktime Player Can't Open An .mp4 File

    I paid for and downloaded https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYZ2Ks8Jx8o, an .mp4 file, but was told that my Quicktime Player couldn't open it. I've never had this problem before, .mp4 being my usual download format, though I usually download them using DownloadHelper. But I play them back on...

    'Alien' folders cluttering up imported Mailboxes

    Unlike the experience of a few others, my recent upgrade to Mavericks has ended up fine, with a clean re-installation dealing with what had been an abysmally sluggish performance following a simple upgrade - apart from a minor problem with my imported Mail backup (and once I'd been shown where...

    Incomplete website access

    My computer is unable to access a part of two websites; parts of other websites too for all I know. I get no response when I try to enter my gas and electricity consumption figures where required on a UK gas & electricity supplier comparison website (Money Saving Expert's Cheap Energy Club)...

    Electronic wall calendar / organiser

    I have a chalkboard hanging on a kitchen cupboard door with the month's appointments, etc, listed. I keep thinking how smarter - dust free and more consistently legible - an LCD panel would be, displaying appropriate bits of my iMac's iCal when touched. I don't want to have to go to the bedroom...

    Mac DVDRipper Pro ?

    I want to be able to convert a US produced, region 1, NTSC DVD, bought as a present for my grand-daughter, and burn it onto a replacement DVD that will play on her parents' UK, region 2, PAL/SECAM DVD player & digital television and, also, upon their iMac. It's just that one review I read...

    Downloads folder problems in Snow Leopard (10.6.8)

    I can no longer open my Downloads folder by clicking on the Dock icon. When I tried to, a question mark (in bold type) appeared in front of the icon and the folder name that appeared had "17-19-06" added; ie, it said "Downloads 17-19-06" instead of just "Downloads". After two or three days of...

    Ghost emails in Snow Leopard (10.6.8) Mail

    I'm experiencing two email oddities with my recently installed Snow Leopard: 1. "Mail Activity" consistently announces the arrival of twice the actual number of incoming emails; eg, 10 when there are only 5. I do have two registered email addresses, but then so I did before with Leopard...
