You didn't mention whether it is a retail box or one from BT or TalkTalk. If the latter, you should still be within your minimum contract period and entitled to a replacement. If the former, did you...

I recommend looking up a few independent cinemas. One multiplex is often much the same as another, but an independent can provide a much better experience and shouldn't cost any more. My nearest...

To be fair to both of them, I would say that applies to their relationship in the books as well, so it could be argued that they are simply playing the parts as they were written. Katniss had no...

That can happen with any set top box. It is, essentially, a small, specialised computer. Any computer can turn turtle if the software becomes corrupted. Reinstallation restores the software to what...

Happy to help. Just a few more considerations. When I got my YV box, I still had an old CRT set, but BBC1 HD looked just the same as BBC 1 (SD). You have the newer box, so the difference might lie...

She isn't going to risk her entire career as a dancer by doing that deliberately. I, too, hope that her injuries are not as bad as reported. I also echo the view that The Jump is a fundamentally...

Apparently the principal photography is done, but considering the way that the attack of the Capitol is described in the book, the special effects people will have their work cut out. It will take a...

Or BT, come to think of it. You didn't specify which. Or is it a retail box? If so, I hope you took out an extended warranty.

Disconnect it from the mains (via the plug, not the switch on the back), leave it for half an hour and then connect it up again. If it does start, it might be an idea to do a full system reset, which...

This sounds rather odd. I have had YouView almost since it came out and my experience is rather different. Is your YV box the original (the one with a curved corner) or the new one, which is fully...

In accepting her defeat the way she did, Pixie showed what a genuinely nice person she is. Had she got to the final and lost to somebody else, fair enough. For this to happen, though, after Len's...

An alternative is Avast, which has a good reputation. The previous posters are correct, however. Malware is not the problem on a Mac that it can be on a Windows machine, partly because the operating...

I disagree fundamentally. She is the Katniss of the book - which means she is moody, taciturn, coming apart at the seams mentally and torn down the middle between her feelings for Peeta and Gale -...
