    Use electrical tape on the tiles and a Tile bit for drilling.

    Masking or vinyl tape, a masonry bit and patience.. A really slow speed drill helps to start you off. If you need a big hole(over say, 6mm) start with a smaller one. You can lubricate with water, but I don't usually bother.

    You may have to use a fair bit of pressure to start it and the bit will still want to wander before it bites but I haven't cracked one yet :)

    Hi codling,

    NO! definitely not the hammer setting. Buy a new masonry bit, take it easy and you should be fine. The hard part is breaking through the glaze to start. Once you've done that it's easy. If you want to minimise the mess, get Mrs. codling (or other willing victim) to hold a hoover nozzle just under the bit. (With the hoover switched on!!!)

    i got mine from gilson audio in middlesbrough.
    cost was £900 and £350 for the progressive scan upgrade.
    its expensive,but im glad i got it now.
    so if funds are there i would definatly recomend it.
    probably better going for the fjm dv27.for a couple of hundred quid more.

    while it was in for the upgrade i borrowed my old player back of the parents(sony dvp-s7000)which i thought was a great player.
    but the picture was very soft and blurry(i thought it was my replacement ae-100)it was quite a strain to my eyes,felt i couldnt focus the pj.
    when i finally got the arcam back the picture blew me away a absolute huge leap.

    cheers carl

    In the past when drilling tiles, I have also scratched some of the glaze of first, this helps the drill bite into the tile.

    By far the easiest way is to use a tile bit. You can get one at b&Q for a couple of quid. They are designed for the job. Done loads in my bathroom. No problems
