 Is anyone using an Orange TV box alongside a Live box ? How is it connected ? I have been using one for several years without a problem. Other than being connected to the TV via a HDMI lead and an Ethernet cable to the box, there are no other connections. I have been trying to help a friend install one, made all the same connections as mine, but the box will not find any TV channels. Have spoken to Orange who state it MUST be connected to a Satellite dish and a roof TV aeriel to get the channels. Surely, if she had a dish and a roof aeriel, why would she need a TV box. Does yours work with / without a dish or aeriel ? Cheers

Hi everyone, I'm writing a short article on how the collapse of Flybe affects those of us living in France, especially those with a business that relies on low-cost flights. If you have a moment, I'd love to hear from anyone affected by the Flybe collapse (holiday makers, holiday-home owners too), as I know the impact will be far-reaching for those of us based on this side of the Channel. Thanks in advance for any contributions, much appreciated!

Hi AllLooking for a bit of advice please. We sold our house in October 2020 (after five years on the market). We are no longer resident in France.The house had not been lived in since 2015 although we still paid Taxe Hab etc as it was habitable. As part of the sale agreement we undertook and paid for (as is standard) the usual checks and also had a boiler service. This document formed part of the house sale.The buyers have today been in touch (via the notaire) to ask for details of the annual boiler checks and who carried them out.We did not have an annual check as not aware it was necessary (realise that is no excuse) and also because we were not living there.Can anyone advise please as to whether the buyers have any comeback at all? We did get work carried out to the boiler when needed but not annually and the service done in October 2020 identified no concerns.The boiler was working on the day of sale as checked by estate agent and our proxy and was put on Hors Gel for new buyers (at their request)Does the service carried out in October 2020 negate the fact that we did not regularly carry out an annual inspection?For info it is a condensing gas boiler on town gasMany thanks Chiffon

We met in 2015 when you, Enid, brought a 'small black dog' over to us.  I just want you to know that the 'small black dog' is nearly 16 now and she is looking forward to her Christmas day.  I can't find your contact details to keep in touch !  I really hope this reaches you.

What other Forums do you go on, I'm looking for one which has normal discussion without all the silly unintelligable one liners and smileys every five minutes, tried a few but they all seem a bit cliquey.
