    Can't Delete Erroneous "birthday" From Ical

    Hello to all, I was just reading an email from a friend who proposed us getting together on a certain day next month (July 2015). I clicked on the proposed date (displayed in the email as "- say Monday July 20th", but instead of giving me the option to name and add notes to the new calendar...

    AppleTV 3rd Gen - Won't connect wirelessly to iTunes and films/TV shows stuttering

    I've had some progress of a sort on this. A few days ago my powerline extender died and I had to buy a new kit (Maplin Av500). I cloned the settings from the router to the extender and had my network back up and running again. Great. I then decided to check my iTunes wireless sharing from my...

    Need to uninstall Oracle Java 1.7 and restore Apple Java 1.6

    I recently installed Oracle Java 1.7 to test a newer version of some software I use for work (we'll call it app A). I wasn't impressed and am now finding that it causes a major conflict with another tool I need for my job (we'll call it app B). Basically, since 1.7 is now the system default...

    AppleTV 3rd Gen - Won't connect wirelessly to iTunes and films/TV shows stuttering

    My ISP has replied that they have no special restrictions (read no restrictions at all) in place that would prevent me from using AppleTV on my home network. Indeed, they went on to reference the fact that I had it working initially as proof that they don't restrict this in any way. Has anyone...

    AppleTV 3rd Gen - Won't connect wirelessly to iTunes and films/TV shows stuttering

    Thanks, Satcomer. That sounds reasonable, but I have to say that it worked fine out of the box for several months before it just refused to connect any more. I've submitted a ticket to my ISP for advice on how to configure things as the process isn't as straightforward as it was on my...

    AppleTV 3rd Gen - Won't connect wirelessly to iTunes and films/TV shows stuttering

    Plusnet Technicolor TG582n But just to confirm: everything worked fine when I set it up. I have made no changes of any kind to the router setup. I have a powerline extender set up in the house due to thick stone walls, but again, this was set up from the start and I had no problems getting...

    AppleTV 3rd Gen - Won't connect wirelessly to iTunes and films/TV shows stuttering

    I've had an on-going problem with my AppleTV(s) for over a year. The first one I bought just coughed and died about one year after I got it and all I was told was that I could buy a new one for £49.00 instead of the full price. I got the new one and it was fine until about a week before it...

    RTMP tool for OSX?

    Thanks, MisterMe. I've downloaded the Elmedia Player, but when I put in the web address: http://mediathek.daserste.de/sendungen_a-z/561146_hart-aber-fair/15372614_pillen-vorsorge-gentest-ist-gesundheit?buchstabe=H It doesn't seem to be able to download anything. If I look at the page source...

    RTMP tool for OSX?

    Hi everyone, Is there such a thing as a Mac-native tool for downloading RTMP streams? I'm trying to download a German-language news video for use with one of my students, but so far have not been able to find a pre-built solution for achieving this. I'm hoping there is something...

    Confused over folder assignments

    Hi Satcomer, I'm not expressing myself very clearly. Sorry. I have two accounts: one is a Gmail account for my personal mails and the other is a Google Apps account for my business mails. I'm not combining these mails. I just gave the example of what I did with my personal account to give some...

    Confused over folder assignments

    Thanks, Satcomer. I appreciate it. This is almost what I have done (my accounts were set up before 10.7 was introduced, so I have had to retroactively assign the Gmail folders as described in the article to make them available in the same way across all my devices). My specific question...

    Confused over folder assignments

    Hello to all, I've got a Gmail IMAP account that I use on both my MBP and my iPhone / iPad. I've noticed, however, that messages I sent from my iPhone / iPad don't show up in the sent items on my MBP and vice versa. After reading a few articles, I think I fixed the problem by expanding...

    Copying backup files between external hard drives

    I think the problem I'm having is similar. I have two sets of backups on an external Western Digital 1TB drive. The first set is from my previous MBP of about a year ago that crashed while under warranty and was replaced. My external disk is now filling up and starting to overwrite backups, but...

    iTunes Add Artwork Has Killed Movie

    I decided to add the DVD artwork for movie I have in iTunes (mp4 format film). I found an appropriate image on Google Images and clicked on Get Info in iTunes, then the Artwork tab and added the image as usual (have done this dozens of times with no problems). Suddenly, iTunes hung for a...

    Lion Mail Searches Unreliable

    Since moving to Lion a few months ago (MBP died and was given a replacement), I've noticed that Mail no longer has the option to manually select "Message", "From", "To" and "Subject": these appear as options as you type in a search query. I use IMAP, so have been told that indexing isn't...

    Can't add/import .mp4 videos to iTunes on Lion

    I recently had my MBP replaced after a raft of issues, which means I'm now using Lion rather than Snow Leopard. I was at a friend's house last night and he was telling me about an app he used to use to capture streaming programming from the BBC, but it has since died. We started looking for...

    Lion Mail/System Settings Buggy

    Thanks, Satcomer. All very good suggestions. In particular I'm very happy I can now adjust my font size in Mail.app; was way too small before. Can't figure out what's going on with the half English/half German thing, but it's not a show stopper. I'll go back to my local Apple Store when I have...

    Lion Mail/System Settings Buggy

    After my laptop died (under warranty) the other day, I was presented with a new MacBook Pro 15". Great - couldn't have asked for more. However, after leaving my backup disk with the guys at the Genius Bar and getting my new beauty home, I notice a few things: 1. I can't change the font...

    Change Movie/TV Location in iTunes

    Thanks, Satcomer. Just to confirm: 1. Shut down iTunes 2. Make and alias of the Movies and TV Shows directories and move these to my external drive 3. Then, once these aliases are on my external drive, make another set of aliases and move these back to the original iTunes directory. Is this...
