    Question Sky Q Mini Alternative

    Hi, I am looking to leave Sky, I'm on their basic package and think £45 quid is a bit steep when I watch mainly free to air channels. They still charge £5 a month for HD! Anyway, I have the Sky mini in a bedroom, and really like this feature and don't want to lose it. Looking around Huax do an...

    Question Any decent alternative to the fire stick remote?

    Hi all, my voice enabled fire stick remote has stopped working , done all the usual checks and it’s dead. Just wondered whether anyone has found a decent alternative remote?

    Question 43XG8305 or alternative 43” TV advice

    I’m now on my second Samsung 43Q60R from John Lewis. The first set was returned due to awful build quality: there were significant gaps between the panel and bezel which led to awful edge lightbleed.

    Question Looking for an alternate launcher for PCVR

    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a launcher to be used for commercial purposes (think VR arcade). SteamVR is too much for new users. I've tried SpringBoard out, but it's honestly more robust than I need/want. The country we are operating in won't work for any payment processing...
