I love watching films, and came across a web site that purportedly allowed you to watch thousands of TV channels and download films for free, for a small one-off fee. So my first task was to work out how to connect my old Sony laptop to my TV, because in my view there's no point in watching a good film on a small laptop screen. I finally managed to do this after 3-4 weeks of trial and error, I got a cable from my S-Video to a converter, then from the converter to SCART.
So, now I could purchase the software. It cost me £29, and came in 4 separate modules. I'm quite disappointed. Not as many channels as they advertised, and some in Chinese. The audio is fine but the picture freezes intermittently, which I believe is due to their under powered servers.
The modules which allows you to download and music or film etc: you have to search for the film you want. It comes up with dozens of copies of the film (e.g. Saw 4), and you have to pick the one you want to download. I picked one in English. It took about 14 hours, and then I discovered that it was in Spanish, and it wasn't Saw 4. Tried another one, and this was also in Spanish, and a completely different film. Also, the films freeze intermittently.
I emailed them and told them I wanted my money back. No reply. I emailed clickbank and told them I wanted a full refund. The money arrived in my account 2 days later. AND all the software that I purchased still functions, so in essence it was free.
My question is this: does anyone know of any decent satellite TV to PC software that actually works? or am I wasting my time? I only have a 2 MB connection.
I have a sneaky suspicion that this isn't meant to be because when I was on my way back from the computer shop with my £12 cable and connector for the laptop, someone went into the back of my car at about 50 mph, and I was stationary; my car is written off. However, today I was offered £1000 personal injury compensation.... but that's another story......
