May I ask how much you paid for the soundbar ? Sorry to be nosey but am genuinely interested

No problem, it's about 3-4 years old and I don't remember. It was a decent enough model and I read up before buying. TBH I think the issue is my brain rather than the hardware. 16 years of listening to my wife is probably what's done the damage. [emoji4]

Are these people f*cking mad?

Ive had to be dragged away from people posting that on social media, my other annoyances are people that speak to their animals like theyre small children and (or) dress the things up....you love your pet but you want to humilate the poor thing at every opportunity?

Yep, it's bordering on cruel as the dogs are obviously quite uncomfortable in some of these stupid outfits (Christmas and Halloween).

Have some friends who run a dog sanctuary and they often post pics of the dogs they've rescued dressed up. I pulled them on it one day and they agreed but, apparently, when they share pics.like this on social media their donations spike.

People who grass on their own. Man in the main stand today chased and pointed at a young fan… dirty dirty grass.

What had the young fan supposedly done?

Your disgust shouldn't be greater for the grass than the culprit.

I'll admit I'm a bit Mutt 'n' Jeff, but even with hearing aids in, and having a sound bar, it's still tough. Completely has ruined any enjoyment... although using CC looks like the way to go for me now.

UK drama shows seem the worse to me. Background music doesn't help, and is way too loud, so I'm constantly adjusting the volume.

Threw a bottle.

The bloke did the right thing.

I can't stand people who attack others for 'grassing' when what they are actually doing is right.

No.

In my experience, they seem to solely concentrate their efforts on designing new forms.

Expecting to see Elizabeth Rizzini present the lunchtime weather and it's Kate Kinsella. [emoji51]

The whistle at the end of McDonald's ads.

Hedgehog 26-01-2022 05:19 PM

The ability of TV channels to show adverts all at the same time... in other words, it is nice to flip to another channel during the ads just to catch up with what is happening and that channel is also on ads, and the next one and the next one... And I'm not talking about major networks here, just little old cable channels.

Maybe a US problem.
