It's an idea but could I be bothered to run the cable from the dish? The 2nd TV gets the Freeview signal from the Marton tower, for the amount of time we use it (BBC News while eating breakfast) I don't think I'd want to make a mess of the decor :grin:

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I rely on chemistry for living and part of that is taking statins, I would like to not take any pills or potions but, unfortunately, you can't choose your genetic make up. Of course, there is freedom of choice but I don't know how refusing some drugs would affect my overall treatment at the surgery.

From what I can make out, in the text on the bit of paper, it's an add on for extending the focal length of a lens. From the size of it I'd guess it's from a TLR camera.
