Re: Logitech mice and Mint 17

Yay! my mouse lives!
Didn't think the little begger would be able to sniff out the PC in the other room!
Suppose it has more to do with it only being able to "pair" with one receiver at a time though. :wink:

Re: Logitech mice and Mint 17

Thanks guys, that gives me hope! There are two things which might impinge upon this problem: I'm currently running "Mate" from a live DVD as my current install has corrupted and I haven't had time to back up my data. The more likely culprit being that I've just noticed that this mouse, whi...

Re: Help with Salvaging Files from Dead PVR

Thanks Mute Ant, I'm a bit confused, is it the HDD which is damaged, or the Firmware within the PVR which has corrupted the drive's content? If it's the drive then I would not bother trying to salvage the content as this would be way beyond my capabilities. Assuming the PVR Files to be lost, the fac...

Help with Salvaging Files from Dead PVR

I have a Vestel T825 based PVR which I'm told does not encrypt its files and so I was hoping that I might be able to rescue the files which may have survived the ultimate demise of the machine. Some months ago this machine when brought from standby, advised that it couldn't find a HDD! Eventually af...

Hi Superannuated, I guess from your username that you and I both work for the same firm! :lol: It's amazing what you miss when you think that you are being receptive! I had to open iTunes to refresh my memory of what was recorded under "Get Info" for these books! I thought I was prevented ...

Nope, didn't see it, just copied and pasted it!
