I found that by changing some simple DNS Settings in the WiFi settings on the iPad I could access US Netflix which has far more content than Irish Netflix.
Do this by going into WiFi settings and selecting Static.
When configured correctly it should look like this:
Primary DNS Server: 18.104.22.168
Secondary DNS Server: 22.214.171.124
A similar technique can be used to get US Netflix to work on Sony PS3, Google Nexus 7, Smartphones and computers.
Note: This can make websites and apps think you are in America which may have an adverse (or positive) effect on your other iPad apps, so you may wish to change these settings back when not using Netflix.
Just got my hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Camera. My Dad ordered one to replace his trusty Casio Exilim that has served his him well for the past 4 years.
First impression are that the screen is huge:
The interface is very familiar. The unit ships with Android 4.1.2 OS.
Colours are fantastic and touch screen is as responsive as you would expect from a modern smartphone.
AllShare lets you share from the Camera to a compatible TV.
The box hints at the 21x zoom lens. I will be giving it a good test this weekend. Update to follow.
Here is the YouTube video that inspired the purchase:
@missushuet was good to me this Christmas.
My Onkyo SR606 has been giving me grief recently when selecting the HDMI input for the PS3.
It works fine for my UPC HD TV Receiver and for my Apple TV but now does not display an image when the PS3 input is selected. I suspected it was the PS3 at fault but after some google investigation it turn out the early Onkyo Audio Visual Receivers have a known fault on the HDMI boards. The unit is over 3 years old and has had a good life so it’s time to retire it and bring in a younger model.
After much research I have decided to return to Onkyo for the replacement.
The NR709 is a networked, 8 x HDMI 1.4 input, 7.2 surround sound AVR. It has a built in DLNA player, can connect to spotify and Internet radio and, what sold it to me, a control app for both Android and iOs devices. The order has been placed and I should have it next week.
Check out the review of it here:
Looking forward to the new Kindle which has just announced that it will launch on 15th November 2011 in the US.
After watching a few videos, I am going to have to get my hands on one of these. Pretty amazing value @ €147.00. Apparently Amazon are losing $50 per device with their “razor blade” strategy of taking a hit with the initial purchase but making a profit through the repeat purchase of the consumables (Music/Books/Magazines and Games).
Now, who do I know that will be in the States in late November…..
