OK this has me stuck,
Panasonic TV, Humax Fox HDR T2 and Buffalo 2TB Pro Duo NAS all on my network. All the above see each other without a problem.
So, I put an mp4 file onto the NAS which the TV will see when NAS is accessed as media server via TV, you can also access NAS as media server...
Yesterday saw the usual Christmas outing to Butts Quarry at Ashover for the now renamed Dave Wilcox Memorial Trial, a fitting tribute to Dave who passed away in May.
A great day out as usual.
Now if you are like me, the best photos when done well are Black and Whites.. What one person might like another may not, but to me a nice very contrasty b/w takes some beating.
Last Friday I spent the day at Donington for the European Le Mans Series, the weather, well, terrible for the whole...
A bit late I'm afraid due to being ill all day Sunday, just could not be bothered to turn the PC on...
Conditions were certainly better than last year with the light being virtually perfect all day.
A quick selection.
Processing maybe slightly...
Does anyone know the answer please...
I am a named driver on my Fathers insurance policy, if he has a temp medical condition which has to be notified to the DVLA and they stop him driving for a period of time, am I still able to drive his car ?
Silly question, I hope...
Most of the Publishing package I use, Quark, Illustrator, Indesign all allow me to select what size paper I want to print the job to without changing the document size I have set. I can have a document which is A5 and print onto A4, A2, A1 paper etc.
Now in Word...
As you saw from my other thread I was at the Twilight Reheat Run at Bruntingthorpe just over a week ago. I have been meaning to have a play with NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 for a while.
Does this work, have I over done the "grain"?
A very different day out for me, a long way away from my usual motorsport or aviation days.
A selection from last weeks day out at the Gauntlet Birds of Prey centre...
Something that I have wanted to try for a long while, and cannot wait for the...
What with all the ice around recently it was time for a good hot stir fry on Saturday, a few drops of this stuff and the cold had gone.
lets see what sauces you recommend
What a great weekend it was for Craig, talking to him on Saturday and he said he had never driven the full GP circuit but was hoping he would be ok.
By late Sunday afternoon that smile would take a lot of moving. A perfect start to the season.
The names Dolby, Craig Dolby...
Had a great day at Mallory Park for Round 2 of the British Motocross Championship yesterday (Sunday). After rain all day Saturday the going was muddy to say the least, but the course held up and even started to dry during the afternoon.
Early morning mist...
Well the time has come for me to get a Sat Nav, but I have a few questions.
Is it possible to set a destination by inputting GPS co-ordinates rather than a postcode? And secondly can you plot a route on a Pc inputting waypoints then transfer this to the unit.
I had a quick look in my local...
A few shots from last weekends Winter Steam Gala at the Great Central Railway.

Probably one of the coldest days I have spent out recently, but it did mean some good smoke and steam so it was worth it.
Yesterday was our annual visit to Butts Quarry near Chesterfield for the Pre War Austin 7 Club Winter Trial. The frozen ground and snow which we expected after the recent weather was not to be, it was wall to wall mud.
Conditions were "sticky" to say the least, but cars and drivers coped well...
A few shots of the on track action from a great weekend.
A flamimg Plato...

My first visit in nearly a year, not too bad a day after a dull start at the Heath.
a couple of the based 15's
just after lunch a quick nip up to Marham
it was good to get a "mil" fix after so much motorsport...

3. Start of the big money shootout

5. Into Park Ferme
6. The winners...
So this weekend the weather men decide to get it right, rain and boy did it come down in the afternoon. I'm not one to let a bit of water bother me usually, but after getting some rather nice spray shots during the morning session I took refuge in the garages in the afternoon.
1. A slightly...
Each year you just hope for some great light for the evening race on Saturday, this year was no exception and for a while the light was top draw stuff.
1. Pushing the cars to the grid.
2. Quick walk around the grid.
3. Luffield with the sun starting to go behind the granstand...
