If you have an LG TV with the Rakuten TV App, formerly Wuaki, and live in the UK then you have probably searched online to see why the app seems to freeze on the home screen.
There is a work around to this problem so please keep reading.
Wuaki TV was an online TV distributor which was bought be Rakuten in 2012. This year (2017) they rebranded Wuaki to Rakuten TV.
The APP is on most LG Smart TVs from the last half decade. Only it’s non functional on UK models, or on mine at least.
I did some research on the topic just as you have now, and I discovered the problem AND the solution.
The Problem: Due to the success of Amazon in the UK, Rukaten was feeling the pinch and they withdrew from the UK market. Their HQ is now in Barcelona, Spain.
The solution: Simply go to Settings/Advanced Settings/General/Location/LG Service Location THEN JUST CHOOSE SPAIN -Instead of United Kingdom.
The TV will then restart and you will have full access to the Rakuten TV services.
Please note, if you have paired your TV remote with your UK set top box then it will need repairing when/if you go back to United Kingdom Service Location.

If like me, you have a need to change your business details on eBay then read through this post to find out how.
In my case I had an old eBay account registered to a Limited Company which I wanted to use as a Sole Trader. I logged into the eBay account. I went to My eBay and then to Account and selected personal information like in the image below.
As you can see, there is no edit option for Business name. So the questions is how do I edit the Business Name without having to contact eBay or spending the next 2 hours drifting through google search results?
Well the answer is quite simple. In the same area of eBay select Addresses instead of personal information.
Then select Registration address and you will see something like the screenshot below.
Here you will be able to change your company details.

Hi again all,
Today I am going to advise you on how to get up-to-date Antivirus software at a rock bottom price. This should apply to all major Internet Security packages from the likes of Mcafee, Norton, Kaspersky and so on.
As you will be aware, each year a new Antivirus or Internet Security package is released with the year it was made. For example Mcafee Live Safe 2017 or Norton Internet Security 2017.
Whilst, yes, they have some upgraded features but you probably didn’t know you can nearly always get the same level of protection at a much lower price.
If you were to buy Mcafee Internet security 2015 like here ===> HERE
As opposed to the 2017 version here ===> HERE
You would save MORE than 50% for what is essentially the exact same product!
Older versions update to either the latest software or, at the very least, the latest Antivirus database. The only real differences between older versions is the title of the software and the price.
Thanks for reading.

How To Install Ares Wizard Kodi Pulse CC Build On Raspberry Pi 2 and 3
Right I’m not sure about Raspberry Pi 2 but here’s how I installed Kodi/Pulse on a Raspberry Pi 3.
Firstly you will need an 8Gb or more micro SD card, a SD card adapter to fit into a card reader, a remote or keyboard/mouse for your Pi. and a Windows computer or laptop.
On the first Pulse Version of Kodi installation I attempted it failed as I used the Openelec software.
So please note. The Ares Wizard WILL NOT WORK when using the Openelec version of Kodi.
OK, so I ran into a persistent Steam Link problem with certain older games. In particular LEGO Movie video game and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean.

Everything you need to know on setting up the Oculus CV1
Hi everyone, I have just received my 40th Birthday present in the form of the Oculus Rift CV1. I have now successfully set it up and put it in use. There were some hurdles on the way, a few really dumb but in searching forums and threads in Google I noticed others were having the same problems. Therefore I am writing this FAQ guide to help others, such as yourself if you are reading this.
How to set up a website email address using Hostgator and Windows Live
Let’s get straight to it. You have a website and you want an email address that shows the same web address.
For example you have a domain called www.mycoolwebsite.com and you want an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org.
This tutorial assumes you already have the website live and hosted and that you have access to your hosting control panel. The example I will now reveal is how to set up an email address for a website (using hostgator) and configure the very handy Windows Live Mail to send and receive emails with ease.
Windows 7 installation no drivers were found
To cut a long story short, I purchased an ex windows 7 key from a retired PC and downloaded an ISO to match the corresponding Operating System. I burned the image to disc then entered the bios of the PC awaiting the installation. I set one of my CD/DVD drives as the first bootable device and put the disc in it.

UPDATE JUNE 2016
The current cost of a £50 Steam Wallet Gift Card is £47.99 by using the method below by using the 5% discount you get it for £45.59.
Hi all. This is how I got a £50 Steam Wallet Code for only £44.64.
During the latest Steam Sale I discovered a popular new game I was interested in at a discounted price. I made up my mind to purchase it but I wanted it even cheaper. So I began my quest to find a Steam Wallet Coupon along with my good friend Google.
After several minutes of searching the outcome looked bleak but I decided to persevere and it finally paid off with me saving more than 10% on a £50 wallet topup.
The method will probably work in most other first world countries as the site seems to be international.
Located in the UK’s North West there is a new cake design company rising. It goes by the name of Edna’s Cakeology who’s website www.ednascakeology.co.uk will reveal to you some really cool creations. The company is run by a woman with the name (You guessed it) Edna! And the company slogan is ‘Expressions With Confection’. Edna has been making these incredible cakes in return for pennies but if you’re looking for a cheap cake now you are out of luck because the slave labour days were just during her talent being a hobby. Now she has taken the plunge in an attempt to run a successful business, passing two tests including a food hygiene inspection. Now to the cakes, here follow some samples of her work:-
In rural areas Natwest provide a mobile van service to places far from an ordinary branch. From time to time the hours of service for each particular town and village do change.

After a little over a week’s usage, I will now review the Dynamode KMG9000-W Gaming Keyboard and Mouse.
Having purchased a bare bone PC recently, I needed a keyboard and mouse to accompany it. Initially I was interested in a mechanical keyboard but the price of such just didn’t seem justifiable. Therefore I began my quest for a more reasonably priced wireless gaming set. Funnily enough, the Dynamode KMG9000-W Set also bothered me with the cost but this time because it was so cheap. This made me scan the Internet for reviews to help me make my mind up. After a little research I found minimal amounts of information and thought “What the heck, I will buy it and review it myself” and that is where we are now.
KMG9000-W Wireless Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Review
Upon receiving the package I found it to be professionally boxed and appealing to look at. I opened it and removed the keyboard and mouse, both nice to look at. I checked for what batteries were required and found the keyboard uses one AA battery while the mouse took 2 AAA’s. The batteries were not supplied. I then took to connecting it to my PC. I found the dongle tucked away in the bottom part of the mouse. I took it out put it in the computer then booted up my PC. Both the keyboard and mouse worked immediately and flawlessly.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The method below does NOT work. The only was to change your backup payment method on the new Paypal site is to NOT use it until your latest payment has fully cleared then remove your card.
In this post I assume each user knows how to add their new payment method to Paypal. This post is about how to remove your existing backup method for payment, which will in turn allow you to change your backup payment method.
If like me you have a credit card registered with your Paypal account which is being used as a backup payment source and you want it removed then keep reading.
Basically I was concerned with a credit card debt and cut up the card so I could not use it anymore. The problem arose when I realised I had registered the particular Mastercard on my Paypal account. As I didn’t want to be tempted to use it via paypal my choice was to remove it from my Paypal account completely. It didn’t happen as planned which I will go into more detail about later. However, for some this method will work fine.
I have personally completed a Quest to see just how many MB or GB online gaming actually uses up. After originally googling it I found mixed results, but due to a friend considering signing up to a mobile broadband package with a data limit I put it to the test. I have a tethering plan with my mobile phone provider which allows me to use my mobile phone has a portable wifi hotspot. My first stage of the test, upon arriving at my friends house, was to perform a speed test in the area. I used the Ookla app on my phone and got a download speed of over 3 Mbps and an upload speed of less than 0.5Mbps. That might not sound too impressive but it was actually more than 3 times faster than his landline broadband due to living in a rural area.
I wrote this post as a troubleshooting guide for anyone having problems running Steam games on Windows 10. As you read on you may well find that the problem is not related to your operating system at all but just in case I have included a few tips for you to try in resolving any issues you may be having. Leading up to what actually worked for me. So I decided to finally boot up Bioshock Infinite in my Steam account, having already completed the first two instalments. However, to my horror after installing the mandatory steam files the game just crashed every time I tried to load it. Therefore, my first port of call was Google where I found an article saying I needed to uncheck ‘Enable the steam Overlay’ in steam. Which I did but it had no effect. I went back to Google and saw an obvious choice due to recently upgrading to Windows 10. The choice was to set the game executable to run in compatibility with Windows 8. As I know Bioshock Infinite worked for me before the upgrade as I had preciously given it a test run. Again, no effect.
If you want to try the former methods you can do so like this:-
If you, like me, noticed your Windows 10 Update failed to install. Then don’t lose hope, it’s not corrupt and the Microsoft Website say’s the update will still be rolled out at some point.
However, if you can’t wait for Microsoft to automatically update your Windows 7 or Windows 8 / 8.1 computer to the new version then please continue reading.
