    Glasgow Queen Street station. Why do they only put the platform on the board 20 seconds before itís due to leave?
    To give the poor sods working there some light entertainment I guess? There's a website/app that tells you what platform what train is going to depart from a good bit in advance and is generally pretty bang on accurate - buggered if I can remember the name though......

    Is the verb not to permit etc, but the noun - i.e. a sanction/sanctions - mean a ban/restriction?

    Don't upgrade to the newer Virgin box... for some channels you think you are recording something but all it is really doing is taking you the catch up for the programme meaning you can't fast forward through the ads. It isn't on everything but when it does happen it is really annoying. One of the many reasons I would recommend to not upgrade the box or upgrade to the newer software if possible.
    Have never experienced that at all.

    Ive not got the new one, so cant say what your experiencing, but I have noticed before on my current one if the Mrs has put a series link on and watched then deleted the episode, the same one still shows up from whatever streaming service it was on. I.E ITV hub. So you think its the recorded episode, but its just the catch up one

    You need to change the settings in the series link from recordings and streaming videos to recordings only.

    I've had a brief look and can't seem to find that option on the 360. I'll have a more detailed look later.

    There was a related peeve that happened last night. We had been out last night and got in at 9.30. My wife wanted to watch the Love Island final which started at 9. It is on a series link. It hadn't recorded. Went onto the channel guide and for some reason every programme on ITV 2 was showing as "No programme" or something along those lines so the series link wasn't picking it up. Also as a result of this it didn't offer the usual "Watch Live" or "Watch from Start" option. She had to wait and watch it on ITV 2+1

    The main gripe I have with Virgin 360 (in my case the actual 360 box but others that have upgraded by just updating the software on their existing box have experienced the same thing) is that it simply doesn't work properly with most modern soundbars. It is advertised as working with Dolby 5.1 but if you choose that setting there is a massive audio sync issue that can't be resolved with the audio sync setting as that only allows you to adjust in one direction which is the wrong direction needed in this case. There's 100s of people reported this judging by the various forums but Virgin refuses to admit there's an issue. The result being is you need to have everything as PCM 2.0 which negates the point in having a 5.1 sound set up. Even if you set it to PCM 2.0, Netflix through the 360 is still out of sync.

    Can't help you with the 360 as we have a V6 and a TiVo box.

    If you download the Virgin Control app you'll be able to change it to recordings only on there, you certainly can for our 2 boxes.

    You could also Try Home-Help&Settings-Settings-Recordings too.

    Parents who on public transport donít bother parenting and just shove a tablet with noisy games or cartoons loaded up on them - without headphones.

    An hour and a half on a plane behind someone blasting out Peppa Pig, and the family on the right with some video game on their tablet full blast. Absolutely hellish.

    Itís your job to comfort, entertain, chastise, or just look after your kid and if youíre going to make everyone else suffer because youíre too lazy to do your responsibility then have a good long hard look in the mirror.

    Nothing wrong with giving kids an ipad on a flight but they should have headphones, same goes for adults watching a movie. I don't mind having bairns around me on a flight they are usually excited and happy and I understand they might cry with sore ears at some point. I'd rather kids than loud lads or couples that want you to hear their hilarious banter

    The lack of headphones is the thing. Kids will make noise, Iím aware of that. Parents thinking itís acceptable to have cartoons or that blaring around is an almighty pet peeve for me - in fact, it may be in my top three pet peeves. Itís an absence of parenting, itís teaching a child that they donít need to care about anyone else around them and itís so ****ing lazy.


    Prepare ahead that youíll need headphones, headphones explain why it would need to be on really, really quietly or just do without.

    Nah I agree it's madness to think it's OK not to have headphones. I'll try and say this without appearing to be BNP as it isn't an insult to the people it's only a gripe for things thread but.. a number of south east Asian dudes on the bus are the same watching Bollywood films and music without headphones, mental stuff ha.

    Also people talking on facetime or handsfree calls in public. I don't know why you would want to but I suppose it goes to your comment about just a lack of respect for other people.

    Best thing I got for flights is good noise cancelling headphones. Can't hear a thing bar the movie I've downloaded, including the wife for a few hours.

    My wife went mental at me when we were heading out the door to go catch a train because she saw me pick up my earphones for the journey. She was angry that I wouldn't want to chat for the entire 4 hours (2 hours there and back) that we were on the train. Yet she had hers for a flight down to London. She was too angry for me to question what the difference was between the train and plane. She still brings it up every time we go for a train... and by that I mean even just getting a train from South Gyle to Haymarket.

    On the noise on public transport, I was on a train between Wolverhampton and Birmingham late at night and I was about the only person on the train that didn't have a boombox blasting out music. I was also one of the few that wasn't wearing a terrorist style balaclava. This was about 15 years ago, so (a) I thought boomboxes had gone out of fashion at least a decade before that and (b) I was shocked at the balaclavas as it wasn't like now when half of Edinburgh's youths seem to wear one.

    Standing in Haymarket station. The screens say 'Edinburgh' for east bound trains. Where do they think I am then! Basically I'm moaning about the lack of 'Waverley' on the screens.

    Would rather be on a flight that had kids on it than a flight that's got drunken hen parties on it.

    Parents in a restaurant with their little darling watching Peppa Pig on a tablet with no headphones for over an hour. Chinese Manor House in Corstorphine. Left before I killed someone 🙃.

    Quite tempted to play music really loud on my phone with no headphones if there is someone else in the train / restaurant either watching films or on a call on loudspeaker. Doubt I'd have the courage to do it.

    We spent ages waiting on the tarmac in Tenerife for the police to arrive to arrest some of the aforementioned hen party. They all thought they were funny/smart at the time until they were carted off by the police. Don't think they believed it was gonna happen until it happened.
    Not what you need after a 5 hour flight.

    Gates on the crawford bridge being pulled over on one side during match days. Does my nut in. If I go that way before the game I'll open them. Been a couple of times after the match where they've been pulled over and just makes the flow of the fans a complete pain in the arse.

    People who don't read an out of office reply.

    My autorespond clearly states I'm out the office, my emails aren't being monitored, aren't being forwarded and if it's urgent to email an alternative address. Don't phone me a day later moaning because I haven't replied to your email.

    Important information regarding payment of pension from the DWP requested on the phone on 11th December arrived today.

    Which bit of important, and needed for my self assessment deadline of 31st January do they don't understand.
    There is no such thing as too much yarn, just not enough time.

    Yes, check consumer rights.

    Edit

    Getting a repair, replacement or refund

    Bought within the last 30 days - you can get a refund on a faulty product.

    Bought within the last 6 months - you are entitled to have it repaired or replaced once. If the item still doesnít work you should get a full refund.

    Bought more than 6 months ago - you may still get a repair or replacement but you will only get a partial refund to reflect the use youíve got out of the item. Youíll need to prove you didnít cause the fault which may make it harder to get redress. These rights apply to items bought after 1st October 2015.

    Repair doesnít work? If you have one repair and it doesnít succeed, you can ask for a full or partial refunding, depending on when the purchase was made.

    Replaced with something different? The retailer should try to replace the item like-for-like. This may not always be possible, so if youíre offered something you donít want you can ask for a refund.



    Hope that helps. Citizens advice website.

    What brand is it? I do a lot of warranty work at my work and there are some brands who are ridiculously unhelpful to their distributors and often put them in really difficult positions with the end user. Samsung and Dyson to name but two.
