Who is this guy never heard of him until Martial got injured sometimes injuries gives you names like Rashford.
If only Martial didn't get injured then there would be no Rashford so thanks to Martial 56m we got two players
​he scored twice against midtylland (sorry if I spelt it wrong) and destroyed arsenal's title hopes yesterday
+he averages 2 goals every league game, and 2 goals every European game. Thats a better goal record than Messi or Ronaldo. His creativity is good also, as shown by his assist for the 3rd goal v Arsenal. He is probably worth more than Messi and Ronaldo combined because of his young age, and the best has yet to come. Will probably need 2 hands to count how many Champions League titles the Rash is gonna go on to win. I won't be betting on him to finish top goal scorer at this summers Euros however, the odds will only be something like 2-1, so not really great value in that regard.

Cold. Fake goods. He doesn't play for England.

Just because he's good enough to play for United, doesn't mean much these days.
Two good games and he is already being offered an improved contract at Old Trafford increasing his pay from £1,500 a week to £15,000 a week.

Good luck to the lad I say!

Not really a valid comparison as those are all third party sellers and amazon don't sell it themselves.
Might sound pedantic but you'll find that for most things that Amazon doesn't sell the third party sellers are all just chancers with high prices only going up against their peer's asking prices which bares no comparison to market value.

I tried to find a review on this without success. Nothing listed on LG's own website which is surprising.

http://www.lg.com/uk/blu-ray-dvd-players-recorders/lg-HR932M

However, this isn't the same unit as pictured (which is an HR-922M), so either the title or pictures on the Argos listing are incorrect.

I tried to find a review on this without success. Nothing listed on LG's own website which is surprising. I zoomed in on the label on Argos page on ebay and the model stated is HR922M. Looks like Argos have Argoosed it. Incorrect model or incorrect picture. The HR922M isn't listed on LG's website either but the 925m is. It does say the 925m has an HD tuner but not sure about this model. Some mixed reviews on Amazon. The box covers quite a few tricks but personally would rather have separates. It has timeshift though for pause, rewind and record which is very handy. Given some heat though as not bad for the price.
Nice but from past experience with other DVD/Freeview PVR Combi's they can be very unreliable and often have very buggy firmware. Nice price though, you'll pay £80 odd quid for a stand alone Smarty WiFi BluRay player.
Old stock then..

can someone explain how this works? says sports movies etc so do you need a subscription? :/

If it's a subscription service - like Netflix, Now TV, Sky Sports, Sky Movies etc.. then yeah you need a subscription to these services to be able to use the "channel"
can someone explain how this works? says sports movies etc so do you need a subscription? :/
some interesting reading on this...
The Roku 1 has always been a curious box in Roku's lineup. When it launched, it wasn't quite as cheap as the (soon-to-be-discontinued) Roku LT and it's also lacking a standout step-up feature, like the headphone jack remote found on the Roku 2 ($80). Other than the boost to 1080p output over the Roku LT (which isn't particularly noticeable on most TVs), the wasn't much of a reason to buy the Roku 1.

Now the Roku 1's appeal is even less clear now that the company has introduced the new Roku Streaming Stick ($50). Sure, the Roku 1's price has been reduced to $50, but the Streaming Stick offers all the same features in a smaller package, plus it includes an RF remote, which means you don't need to point it at the box for it to work

ethernet is pointless

bit of a sweeping generalisation - maybe it's pointless for you, but some people have weak wifi signals around their house, so ethernet cable to router is a good way to get reliable 1080p streams. I bought a Roku3 HD for this reason.

Agreed, I have ethernet to my bedroom already because I used to use a PlayonHD in there so if I got one of these of course I'd use ethernet over wifi.
I looked at these but worked out better to get a sony bluray player, which had netflix and lovefilm on it for 49 quid

ok. so basically if I buy a decent smart tv I shouldn't need this?
As far as I'm aware there isn't one smart TV that has all the apps for streaming services. You will always be missing either Netflix, prime, now tv, or one of the terrestrial channel apps.

Roku doesn't have Amazon Prime Instant for is annoying for me as I could dump my old Xbox 360 if it did.

As mentioned Samsung Smart TVs have all the major UK catchup apps - http://www.samsung.com/uk/tvapps/ making them better than a Roku IMO.

BTW this was a good deal, I was tempted but as I already have a Roku 2 it would have been a very minor upgrade.

A month ago I'd have snapped this up. I picked up a cheap Roku LT for Plex and Netflix while waiting for an Roku XS offer, but it was such a pain setting it up to run US Netflix. I had to hack my Sky router to be able to change the DNS settings. After doing this and tweaking other settings and running UnblockUS (monthly paid account) I was having issues with some websites not liking the new setup and decided it wasn't for me.
I've reset the DNS and removed UnblockUS and ordered a cheap tablet from eBay with an HDMI out and a 5m cable. All I have to do is boot up the tablet and run Hola Unblocker and voila - US Netflix with no issues.

Heat for this deal though (way, way better than the LT).

I hardly think it's bad because you couldn't hack into it.

When did I say that it was "bad"?


the now tv box only cost 10£ plus £2 cashback via topcashback

Where did you get this from - link please.


You can go straight to Nowtv.com and order the box for £9.99
Most electrical retailers/supermarkets sell it for £20/25 but that includes a Sky Sports or Sky Movies 3 month pass in most cases.

The girlfriend got one of these for the spare room, does anyone know if there is a hack to make the DVD player region free?

Have you tried a US disk?

It looks like its a Vestel inside from lookin on the web, so when you in DVD mode with no disk on typing 9735 should bring up a dvd region menu should but does not.

Try going to the DVD with no disk in and enter 97350 to set it to all regions, not sure if mine was already region free or that code made it so..
You, my good sir, are a star! It did come up with 'incorrect region' but now works with the US discs we have thanks!

All DVD players should be multi-region out of the box nowadays, it really winds me up that they still bother trying to limit what people can buy.

Pretty pleased with the picture quality and it's fairly straightforward to use (which is just as well, given the usual "pigeon-English" instructions!!!). The remote control isn't terribly responsive and you have to hold it quite close, but all-in-all you can't grumble for a tenner. :)

From the pictures and description i'm not sure if it's the same thing, but this:http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00BUQR6V4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1Upscales my N64 to 16:9 widescreen and looks/sounds amazing!
It's not. This is a media player.

Fair enough then! Bargain for the simplicity of plug/play.

If one were really strapped for cash or couldn't wait for delivery this could probably be done with some freeware by re-encoding the file via an upscaling setting.
Sorry, I'm no expert in the field but I think you're missing the point of what this device does. It allows you to play media files from a USB flash drive or SD card on any TV / monitor that has an HDMI input (although as I said originally, I'm not sure why the image shows component A/V leads - you can only see one end of the leads so I don't know whether they have the same connections on the other side and whether the media player supports this type of connection - ie for really old TVs that don't have an HDMI input).

Hi, no not missing the point, I understand that this is intended for 'upscaling' smaller screen resolution content (lets say 720) to full 1080 - the device/storage capacity is irrelevant to my last comment.
Yeah, upscaling is one of the features of this media player, but the basic premise of the device is this:
I've got video files on a USB flash drive.
I've got a TV with an HDMI input.
I want to be able to watch my video files on my TV (whether "upscaled" or not).
You originally stated "If one were really strapped for cash or couldn't wait for delivery this could probably be done with some freeware by re-encoding the file via an upscaling setting".
But no amount of re-encoding will allow me to plug my USB drive into my HDMI port so this can't be seen as an alternative to buying this device, which is what you seemed to be implying (or it's cetainly how your post reads).

Anyway, I think we've managed to clear up any confusion. 8)

In that case wouldn't it be cheaper to connect a laptop or PC with the card/USB plugged in to the TV via VGA? Or if no VGA port, then VGA to Scart?
I dare say there are numerous possibilities but I don't have a laptop and my PC is a long way off my TV (plus this device will allow me to watch video files on my TV without having to boot up and leave my PC running all the time) - which is why I've ordered one.

At the end of the day, it's horses for courses and this looks to suit my needs (and possibly others too). ;)

Sorry, I'm no expert in the field but I think you're missing the point of what this device does. It allows you to play media files from a USB flash drive or SD card on any TV / monitor that has an HDMI input (although as I said originally, I'm not sure why the image shows component A/V leads - you can only see one end of the leads so I don't know whether they have the same connections on the other side and whether the media player supports this type of connection - ie for really old TVs that don't have an HDMI input).

Hi, no not missing the point, I understand that this is intended for 'upscaling' smaller screen resolution content (lets say 720) to full 1080 - the device/storage capacity is irrelevant to my last comment.
Yeah, upscaling is one of the features of this media player, but the basic premise of the device is this:
I've got video files on a USB flash drive.
I've got a TV with an HDMI input.
I want to be able to watch my video files on my TV (whether "upscaled" or not).
You originally stated "If one were really strapped for cash or couldn't wait for delivery this could probably be done with some freeware by re-encoding the file via an upscaling setting".
But no amount of re-encoding will allow me to plug my USB drive into my HDMI port so this can't be seen as an alternative to buying this device, which is what you seemed to be implying (or it's cetainly how your post reads).

Anyway, I think we've managed to clear up any confusion. 8)

In that case wouldn't it be cheaper to connect a laptop or PC with the card/USB plugged in to the TV via VGA? Or if no VGA port, then VGA to Scart?

zinc chloride batteries always get a cold vote, drain qukck and if left in devices for periods of time, they can leak and leavd a white residue and corrode tge terminals

I've never had a problem with Polaroid personally. When they run low, I change them.

I appreciate they aren't the best, but batteries are so expensive, this seems like a good alternative, especially as so many people will be using batteries with all their gifts next week.

The old adage is true I guess, "you get what you pay for".

Surely at 9p a battery, you can't grumble :p

Alkaline batteries will tend to last about 10 or 15 times as long as zinc batteries, in maplin can get 100 alkaline extra long life for £15, yes cost more, but probably last you till next christmas. Reason i use them is i saw them on gadget show and came pretty high, 2nd or 3rd.

Even the kodak ones are zinc carbon

If that's the case, then fair play, good deal.
I guess I just thought that this was also a brand and for 9p a battery, delivered, was cheap as chips.
Never mind, can't win 'em all!
The kodak ones that are usually 10 for £1 in poundland have 5 extra free. 15 for £1 is much better deal and the batteries are decent enough for kids toys.

Absolutely amazing book! I can't recommend it enough, great for any 80s geeks or old school gamers. Great Find - Heat Added X)
Agree with the points made on the excessive references. Although it must be said they are more integral to the plot than the 'who remembers this?' type humour of Family Guy or Peter Kay.

Thanks for moving to gaming @sits69 - I'm new here X)

Good book, although the references can be a bit excessive at times. I agree any 70s or 80s kids into videogames and movies will enjoy it. Audiobook is great too, read by Will Wheaton! :D

Yeah, I thought the references got a little heavy-handed and overplayed by the end, but otherwise enjoyable.

As much as I enjoy recategorising deals in HUKD into their proper category, Ready Player One probably belongs under Gaming. :)

I've downloaded a few of these type of apps in the past and NEVER used one...
Why do I need one?
To play videos? My iphone/ipad is 16gb, not really big enough to carry a whole load of videos, thats what youtube and netflix is for... right?
Why no VLC which is free?

Do you use optical cable to connect from TV to surround sound?
What if you connect frmo the Sumvision Player straight to your surround sound with optical does that output 5.1?
Also does your sumvision player have to be changed in the settings to output 5.1?

I found mine would happily play 1080p mkv files with bitrates exceeding 20mbps but what let it down was that on some files it would seem to output a slightly pixelated image, this was especially obvious in diagonals that had that stair step look to them.At first I thought it was because I was trying to play files that were too big and that it was doing some internal downrezzing before it output the image but after experimentation it appeared to be random, it would play some 20gb files with breathtaking image quality and not skip a frame and then on some much smaller 2gb files it would exhibit the jagged pixelated issue. I could try two different 20gb files of the same movie and one would be fine and the other all pixelated.I got so fed up with trying to work out why and if I could prevent it that I gave up and got a wdtv. I still use it for the bedroom though because even when it goes jaggy you can't really tell on the small tv.

Yeah i also tried mine on my second 32 inch tv. It actually played better and was smoother than my 42 inch tv

I've read this thread & the now tv thread with interest and see that a lot of people want to use plex. I've used plex tvmobili tversity etc & found them all to be slow, buggy & unpredictable. Much better to find something which can play your media without transcoding. I managed to get an acer revo off ebay for £30. Runs W8 & xbmc - plays all my media locally or from nas without transcoding.

I know I got a bargain but I'm sure that there' s better stuff out there than the Roku.


I use the same setup as you but i run xbmc's plex add-on - on two pc's. It remembers where you are from room to room and the 'on deck' type of categories like 'recently watched shows' are really useful. No transcoding going on as xbmc can handle everything natively :)

Great price for a revo - I uase mine with openelec, found it much faster than with win8 + xbmc.

I use windows 8 or openelec dual boot. But maybe i poo pooed plex too soon. I will investigate. Thanks.

Funnily enough I have a net top pc mounted behind the tv with xbmc, thing is plex through this now tv works perfect and is so much more convenient with the remote and layout, I'm going to take the net top out and use it as a pc in the spare room I think. I have used xbmc and smb shares for years, well I will carry on in the lounge, but for the spare room I way prefer this box, wife and kid can use it fine too! The amount of times my wife rings me at work saying the film won't play - very annoying!

I get the layout & remote thing - thats great. I used tvmoboli/plex with a network blu ray player. But when you press fast forward or rewind and everything crashes it seems anything but simple. Maybe a cheap tablet with hdmi out would be a cheap easy to use alternative.

Granted it is slow. But ive had no crashes or issues of that sort - like i said i think its a great secondary solution for another room!

Ive heard some pretty poor reports about Toshiba Blurays, they won't play stuff other than jpg's and mp3's through their usb slot, and even those that do can't play mkv files - (I personally prefer mkv files)

Some models may miss out on these features. But what more would you want for £22? This is a bargain if instore (_;)
Absolutely. But if you store a lot of stuff in MKV needing it to play through the usb (like me, so there'll be others too) it'd be a big disappointment, as other makes do this as a matter of course - personally, Ive had LOTS of problems with Toshiba stuff that don't happen with other makes
But again.. at £22?? Lol

So, if you've got a lot of stuff in mkv, then you'd say it's a great deal, even though it's no use for what you want it for.
Its fine if you just want to play Blurays ONLY even then I gather it's not great there, either. But many need it to do more.
So you don't - fine (But I just bet there'll come a time when you WILL need it to do more).
But because it doesn't apply to YOU doesn't mean it applies to everyone. So go out and get it then. Oh right. Store specific.....maybe 2 or 3 out of several hundred....X)

Hi. I recommend the WDTV to everyone as bluray players dont play all the mkv movies. And I also killed my £500 samsung 500gb bluray player by updating it and now its got cinavia. I now have the 1tb wdtv live hub and its easy to move from room to room. Even taking it to frie ds house or on holiday.
With me, it HAS to be able to play MKV - it's been going so long, and is THE best way to play stuff, so why the hell certain brands (Toshiba is the worst but NOT the only one) refuse to accomodate it ? I'm looking for a Bluray player that'll do just that my current LG does but need to upgrade. Also 3d capable and Smart capable with usb, Prices coming down slowly so maybe....

My advice is to go for a brand that will not put cinavia like sony and sumsung do. Most are going on the bandwagon so I opted for WDTV :3

You could just buy this, and then buy a simple £5 phone (that lasts two weeks between charges) and save yourself a lot of money!

I'm not saying that people should get an iPhone, as android phones are far superior. But the point is that with your solution, you wouldn't have mobile internet - you'd have to spend a bit on a phone which can do HSDPA+ wifi tethering (which almost certainly be a smartphone anyway, and cost quite a bit) in order to have a similar experience to having a smartphone.

If you were going to do that, you may as well just spend £239 on a Nexus 4 and get a far better and more streamlined experience

You can get an old Nokia Symbian smartphone that does tethering for next to nothing these days (I got given one), like an E63 or something (plus you get the advantages of a real keyboard for texting, etc), plus their batteries last for ages. As I had Wi-Fi at home and at work, and didn't need the tethering very often, it was a very cost effective way to get access to the Apple apps.

Even now that I have a Windows phone I still use the ipod in the car for podcasts and audio books. I still think Apple has the best platform for these.

The Nokia E63, like many other similarly priced phones doesn't support HSDPA or HSDPA+.

not a deal, this is the going rate for this player at the moment, so cold for me.

This is *still* the cheapest I can see it anywhere - thanks for the comment though
so this would more be an advertisment for this product from this seller, as apposed to an actual deal then. 3p cheaper than everywhere else is not in my opinion a deal, and there is £2.99 postage if you order from asda online which then make this more expensive than amazon.

I'll second that if it works. Lovefilm are now completely ignoring me. Thanks for being a loyal customer for 5+ years I spose.
I wouldn't know - haven't used netflix since my trial on the PC. :) If ever get LF working... ;)

I was impressed that it remembers the position you're at on a disc even when the disc is removed and something else played. Beats my 2-3 year old Toshiba which wouldn't remember even if you just hit stop...!
Not tried Lovefilm, we're on Netflix at the moment.

This player is, in general a bargain, and is working very well for us. BUT I'm on the verge of seeing if I can return it because of one simple thing.... Lack of being able to pause when streaming video is a killer and an unbelievable oversight.
Has anyone actually managed to get the Lovefilm app working / to appear even?

I've now emailed Lovefilm directly (and responded to their stupid stock response, ignoring my email).

I'm running the VER:BD9.593.00 version that some above were struggling to install, and the 'server' version / driver is H12IM2N0390.

Anyone? Thanks

fwiw, I've also downloaded the firmware from LG's french and USA websites and I can confirm the LG_BD_7000M60.ROM are identical to the LG's dutch website file when I perform a binary file comparison.The LG_BD_7000M60.ROM file posted at mmdvd.com appears to be a modded file. ie. the .ROM file is different to the LG US/dutch/french files and so should not be used.It is not clear why the LG UK BP420/520/620 use a differently named LG_BD_7002M60.ROMAfter a bit of googling, I have found this LG page which lists both LG_BD_7000M60 and LG_BD_7002M60 versions LG IndonesiaUnfortunately, the LG_BD_7002M60 zip file is also corrupt.I notice the date and time stamp of the LG_BD_7002M60.ROM file contained in the corrupted UK and Indonesia zip files are identical to those for the US/french/dutch LG_BD_7000M60.ROM. It may suggest they may be identical except in filename.I've now also updated my BP620 using the LG dutch website renamed .ROM file too. I went into Setup to check the version had changed and then loaded iPlayer. No errors. The frame skipping is still evident in iplayer. fyi, I notice the BP620 defaults to 'Auto' for the HDMI resolution setting. I've always set it manually to 1080P.I've also come across a strange sound mute problem with the YouTube app (which is inferior to use compared to Sony's implementation). On some 360P videos which are more than 1 hour duration which I tested, I noticed when I start playback, then immediately fast forward more than 15 minutes into the clip, there is no sound when the playback resumes. (Anyone worked out how to fast forward in steps greater than 30 seconds?)With the old firmware, I think the sound did seem to resume within half a minute with one or two videos which had this problem (but this is not conclusive). With the new firmware, I timed up to 4 minutes before the sound appeared with a couple of 360P videos when spending more time than previously testing the YouTube app today.It seems to only affect 360P clips. 480P and 720P don't 'seem' to exhibit this problem but I haven't tested as many 480+P clips.Example 1+hr Google clip on youtubeI think I recall reading somewhere that youtube clips up to 360P are Flash video format. 480P and above are MP4.



Yes the Dutch sourced software is fine.

The modified softwares I came across

Linked from here
http://www.mrmdvd.com/icosupdate.html
Seem to be for the multi region chipped version
http://www.mrmdvd.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=159&products_id=1432

They seem to work ok on this vanilla machine and interestingly software can be rolled backwards/forwards at will.

I don't think any software update is going to vastly improve the frustrating experience of wading through treacle on this slow machine or the juddery iplayer. It reminds me of how slow the Sammy smart hub was when it was first introduced.

These comments are of course about the "smart" stuff and not its ability as a bluray and file player. It's good to see that it has component outputs as well as digital unlike this year's model. The DLNA and wireless set up for me has been effortless and that was without using the included software, LG have made that side of things very user friendly.

Anybody played the game yet?
If you really want to play it chronogically, then it would be -

1. God of War: Ascension (PS3)
2. God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP/PS3)
3. God of War (PS2/PS3)
4. God of War: Ghost of Sparta (PSP/PS3)**
5. God of War: Betrayal (mobile)**
6. God of War II (PS2/PS3)
7. God of War III (PS3)
**I've played [and completed] all except those 2, to be honest I really didn't bother with Betrayal since it's 2D side scrolling.

Still think it's best 1-3, then Ascension, due to the improvement in gameplay (essentially the same in all three, but with minor improvements) and graphics. Plus, GOW:A has online multiplayer, you'll probably spend more time playing it. Whatever you decide to do, enjoy killing the Hydra, Ares, Persephone, the Colossus of Rhodes, the rest of the Olympian gods and whole bunch of others...

I played it from 1 to 3, since I started playing it from the PS2. Best played that way, to enjoy the story.

Fair enough but what about someone like me who didn't start playing it from the ps2 days? This is meant to be a prequel so would it be better to start off with this or still go 1-3 and then this?

Ok tek-monkey you poked me enough so I've ordered the MK809 you linked to earlier.

Just need a cheap simple remote compatible with Android.
I know I can use my phone or tablet to control it, but could do with a solid remote for family members.

Check out the Mele Air remote. Android was never made to be controlled with a remote, but its about as close as you get, and has a keyboard for when you use the internet.

You wont find simple play, pause or channel buttons, its not quite as idiot proof as a TV remote, but it does the job. The alternative is a wireless mouse, which is just as good (minus the keyboard) really, but its a bit odd having a mouse in your living room.

D'oh.... Didn't see that your question had already been answered. My tablet didn't show all the posts from people after you.

Anyway, I've ordered a Minix Neo X5 and A Minix Neo A5 remote control. It is slightly more than these usb stick designs but it's got great reviews so far as the specs are better allegedly. Will update this once it arrives - got it at geekbuying.com and they're slow at shipping from China.

what made you choose this over the other sticks? how much is it costing including shipping.


Two things really. Firstly it uses the Arm Cortex A9 chip which the majority of sticks don't yet use. But also (importantly for me) it's not a usb stick shape. It's actually more in shape like an Apple TV than anything else. Some, although not all, usb stick designs suffer from overheating and don't always drain enough power from the TV's usb port.

The shipping with geek buying was free - although they offer to send via FedEx if you pay an extra £20.
