When my Spotify promotion period ended, my Spotify account just reverted to basic (ie free). They didn't automatically start charging me. I then went on to Spotify and subscribed to Premium with my credit card.
@LF1949 : If you don't have a setup DVD (and instructions), then perhaps the following will help.
1. Choose a channel like CP24HD.
2. Choose a picture mode like "cinema, movie, pro, user, custom" depending on your TV. Do not use "Standard" or "Vivid" modes.
3. By choosing this, most of the automatic settings are usually then set to the optimum or turned off. If they are not "off", try turning off any automatic settings to see if that helps.
4. Use the "black level" (often called brightness) and turn it up until the blacks appear grey. Then turn the black level down until the blacks get no blacker. This will usually be at around 50 out of 100, but could be as low as 40 or as high as 60. This will prevent black crush where you cannot see shadow details.
5. Contrast (white level) is a bit more tricky. Find a good HD news channel (CTV, CBC) and find someone wearing a white shirt. You should be able to see the wrinkles in his shirt. If not, lower the white level until you see the wrinkles, but the picture doesn't get too dark. Often with new TVs there is a screen brightness option, which should also affect how bright the TV is (not to be confused with Black Level). Use that so that the screen is not too bright, especially if you usually watch in a dark/darkened room.
6. Colour levels are usually too high, try lowering them while still seeing good colour in people/clothes, grass.
7. Tint/hue is usually easy to set - temporarily crank up the colour and adjust tint so it's not too red or too green in the faces of people on a good channel.
8. Sharpness if often set too high. On CP24 or another channel that contains writing, you can look for stairstepping, macroblocking, mosquito noise, halos around the writing. Set the sharpness down to eliminate these. (Look them up if you're not familiar). The appropriate setting is usually around 0-20 out of 100.
9. Set the colour temperature to the warmest or second from the warmest setting (if there are 5+ options). Most TV images are way too "cool" (blue). The ice in hockey arenas is usually closer to cream coloured than white. Most people set their TVs way too blue/cool.
There will be differences between channels and especially with movies since some movies have certain colours due to "director's intent". For example, the Matrix movie is quite green. Most technical movies are quite blue, etc. Set it up so that it looks good for your most-watched channels.
Here's more on the topic:
I don't believe anyone can hack a iPhone unless they have your Apple ID password and any passwords associated to your accounts / apps..
First would be to change all passwords and do a clean factory reset on the device.
If you feel like you want to go an extra step, the if the device is under warranty I would make a appointment with their closest Apple store to you and have them exchange it to another same iPhone as urs. Make sure once again to change all passwords to all accounts u have.
If all he wants is the corded phone somewhere, get a splitter for the phone lines. Plug it into the modem jack and then you can plug two lines into the splitter - one for the corded phone and one for the cordless base.
If you do decide on using a UPS for the cordless base/modem remember to plug the modem and the cordless base into the battery protected side of the UPS (and nothing else). You can plug whatever you want into the "surge only" side. You can usually get a small UPS for $30-50 on sale.
Went to live chat to get my log on info for the rocket stick.
As I mentioned before the rocket stick works great on a Chromebook.
I tried it today on a Windows10 laptop,what hoopla.
Windows10 would not hold a signal.
Now that I have log on info,hopefully it will work better with Windows10.
If not I will just use my Chromebook all the time.
I forgot to mention that with the Chromebook when you are not using,gone for coffee break,the rocket stick auto turns off.With Windows10 it stays on all the time,so you are using up your data time.
Update: The Spybike manufacturer gave me the APN and user/password settings for the international SIM card, and I was able to get the tracker talking to the GPRS network! Thanks again for the suggestions.
For anyone coming across this thread in the future, who's trying to get their Spybike tracker working: you can use the "gprssettings" command to retrieve the default GPRS settings. If you're using the included international SIM card, you shouldn't need to change the settings. In particular, you don't need to modify the GPRS settings to match the local network.
