    Football Thread 2017/18

    It’s not been a league since the very clubs who would benefit had the vote to put Rangers down to the bottom league. Celtic were guaranteed 1st place and the champions league money by default and the rest had an slightly easier task of fighting for second place and Europe. All that has happened is that Scottish football is now a backwater with mediocre players including the Celtic squad. The teams under Tommy Burns and Martin O’Neill were vastly superior to the current Celtic squad in my opinion.

    Do your other halves game ?

    My better half plays the usual iOS puzzle games. I lost interest in gaming several years ago but trying to convince myself that a Nintendo switch would reverse that decision.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Considering an Xbox One S as a one box centre for downstairs as my sky contract is now finished and I recently sold on the bluray player. The plan is using the Xbox tv tuner and the one guide for downstairs but also upstairs. However I can't find conclusive proof if I can also feed the Xbox screen to an amazon fire tv upstairs to save putting an aerial feed in to the bedroom. Everything is wired through homeplugs. Assuming this is possible how would I control the Xbox to change channel etc.

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    Not sure if this is the right section for this question. I have recently picked up a samsung note 4 to see if I can finally make the move from ios to android.So far it's a nice experience. I was wondering if getting the vr set for the note 4 would be a worthwhile purchase to experience basic vr.

    It's a roof aerial with line of sight to the transmitter 5 miles away. I never contemplated a faulty unit as I have seen several reports of people with the same issue.

    Booster makes no difference as the picture still breaks up and freezes despite the picture being fine when the aerial is plugged in to the tv.

    First go today with the Xbox one and the interface is clunky and a mess to navigate compared to my past experience on the 360. Also having issues with the tuner as the picture continually freezes. Aerial plugged into the TV works fine. Going to try a booster to see if that helps.

    We don't have a 4K tv and have no plans to get one anytime soon so the extra hardware on the S would be overkill. So the logic was purchase the Xbox one which would see us through at least until project Scorpio is released. Of course I may convince myself otherwise before making a purchase.

    Going to purchase an Xbox one in the next few days. Is it worth getting the Kinect for voice controlling when used for media as I don't reckon it will be used for gaming. Also planning on picking up the tv tuner assuming it provides a satisfactory picture. Needs to be wife friendly.

    Would this be worth considering compared to a dslr. http://www.jessops.com/online.store/categories/products/panasonic/lumix-dmc-gx7-camera-in-silver-14-42mm-lens-extra-battery-exclusive-to-jessops-92092/show.html

    I've the chance of a Sony hx300 and wondered if it would be a good start to photography as a hobby instead of a dslr that I was considering. Most of the pics will be family and landscape.

    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    Looking for some advice in regards to starting photography as a hobby. I've been looking for a dslr to start and I have a seen a few months old Nikon D5500 with 18mm-55mm lens and wondered if it's a good camera to learn with or if there are better alternatives. Other option is a Nikon D3300 with 18-55mm lens leaving money for another lens purchase. Budget wise is around £400-£450.

    It seems it was a price error but anyone who reserved has received the bundle at the £329 price. I have one reserved at the Hamilton Palace grounds store for collection Friday 13th but unable to collect due to work commitments so anyone who can make use of the reservation number is welcome.
