  1. FRITZ!Box DSL modem and router problems

    Express VPN offers: ExpressVPN split tunneling - for installation in a router aswell ( https://restoreprivacy.com/expressvpn-review/) Split tunneling allows you to define some rules for which IP addresses should connect via the PN and which ones not   It says it can be installed in routers, not sure if the FRITZ box is supported  
  2. Problem with android bug

  4. Problem with android bug

    maybe, but it says in the above links, that they analyze , you browser history and your logged googlemail account to decide which ads you will get, maybe you browse and or different things on different devices, or maybe some are set to auto-clean on shut down. I get ads thrown at me on all different devices - that I use regularly   - I did not find a way to pay to get rig of the ads either.   Its annoying, because sometimes I can watch a lot on Youtube.

  6. Problem with android bug

    This is not malware or a bug.   I get a lot more pop-ups during video play, sometimes mid-session, which is annoying, I am using Firefox on AFTV and dedicated  youtube app it happens  a lot more these days.   The reason that this happens, is that youtube are getting paid to show the  ads, mid way through a video ( to make a bit of money ).  I can see no way around it, if you want no ads, you have to find another streaming site either free or paid.   See https://marketingland.com/is-youtube-serving-up-more-pre-roll-mid-roll-video-ads-243505 for more info read also https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/132596?hl=en
  7. UK TV on Amazon Fire stick with NordVPN

    I really sorry, if you got memory problems    just take the tablets, you will fell better I hope you get better soon 
  8. I have an AFTV box version 2, its been working just great for the last 2 or 3 years   Recently, strange things started to happen   1)  Normally, if I just hit the menu ( or any ) button on the AFTV remote then the TV ( which was on Standy ), would come out of standby in TV watching mode. I checked the settings in the AFTV ( HDMI CEC Device control ) is switched on the correct setting is on the TV as well. Anybody else had this and knows what to do to make it work again. 2) While using the AFTV remote, sometimes, I start a program playing, then hit the "back", button, I can see the AFTV box has seen the command, because the LED flashes on the box, but the program ( or menu that I was in ) just remains.. The only way to get he "back" button to work again is to re-cycle the box. All the other buttons seem to work ok.  Anybody else had this and knows what to do to make it work again. ps I tried replacing the batteries!   Maybe the AFTV box is just getting too old and needs to be replaced

    fully agree, if  Chocky wants to get a man in, then no problem, I do it myself when needed and of course even very simple things can be hard if you do not know what to do.   I just got the tone of his initial post that he is looking for ideas on how to get his system working by himself, by asking for other peoples experiences.

    Sorry I did not read your original post well enough,... Before you get another router, I would try to find out why the app does not work !, it should work and it the best and easiest way to get UK TV with AFTV and NordVPN.   did you follow this guide ? https://nordvpn.com/blog/nordvpn-app-for-android-tv-is-available-now/   what actually happens, when you select the iplayer, did you get a strange message ?, did it just freeze ???   if you can load your AFTV, with a  internet browser, then do it, I used FIREFOX. When you are connected to the VPN, goto the internet site https://whatismyipaddress.com/ on the AFTV - what does it  say ? if it says Germany, then recheck your VPN configuration on the AFTV app, keep doing it until you see a UK address then the iplayer should work.   else start a chat session with NordVPN ask them why it does not work   You can also try it in this way, https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/nordvpn-fire-tv-firestick/ , but it harder - to make work

    its not so hard, on one of the others threads, ( like - tv on internet as alternative ), there are detailed instructions around page 80 !!    but as said, I could never get it to work, while other VPN providers worked without a problem.
  13. UK TV on Amazon Fire stick with NordVPN

    No, I installed the VPN in my router 
  14. UK TV on Amazon Fire stick with NordVPN

    I tried NordVPN on a free trail   I could get it to work on my PC or on my SmartTV, but I could never get the AFTV to work. I got several free trials as they tried several things, but in the end I just gave up and went back to my old supplier
