  1. Your old True dish will be pointing 78 deg to Thaicom 5/6 and recently launched new Thaicom 8 satellite. Best bet is to buy the new IPM HD Pro 3 sat receiver which can pick up both FTA C and KU band signals on all these satellites, bare in mind you would need a C band dish also to get the C band signals. By using IPM receiver you will get all the IPM channels which other receivers cannot receive which is about 20 HD channels and 60 SD channels. Note many channels with western programs in Thai dubbing sometimes can be switched to English by changing the audio language settings, this is quite common with the digital terrestrial channels ( 26 in total) broadcast via standard yagi Aerial.
  2. I have used a VPN from my-private-network for the last 5 years. It has worked for me in China, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Papua New Guinea and has never let me down. Highly recommended only 5 pounds per month. Just follow the below link to the my private website.
  3. Take a look at this post
  4. You can't take any chances with the water you drink. I'm surrounded by farm land which is often sprayed with all sorts of chemicals that most likely would be banned in a western country. My filter system removes everything from pesticides to harmful bacteria, the water is soft and does not stain. Most land in Thailand is heavy in iron hence the red colored ground, you need a good filter to remove all is iron and copper. I don't buy any water. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect Thailand
  5. I have a well bore hole and have the following setup installed: 1. Water gets pumped from well to a 2000l holding tank, 2. Water is then pumped through a 5 stage filter setup, 3. The clean water is pumped to a second 2000l storage tank, 4. When there is demand for water a third pump with pressure tank pumps clean water to the house, 5. The kitchen tap has a 6th stage via installation of an eSpring filter, this water is pure and suitable for drinking. All other sinks, showers take water direct from the second clean water holding tank. My main 5 stage filter setup is as follows: 1st stage > Manganese filter 2nd stage > Carbon filter 3rd stage > Resin filter 4th stage > 2 x 5 micron filters 5th stage > Chlorinator 6th stage > eSpring filter (only installed in kitchen, the built in eSpring carbon filter removes the chlorine and the UV light destroys any bacteria that the Chlorinator does not) The system is controlled by a control panel with level switches in both tanks. The filter system requires a backwash every 2 weeks which is done by selecting the pump to manual mode which then takes very little time.

  6. Is this the Genuine Ford OEM roller shutter that they are fitting?
  7. Good to hear Tom, post some pics if you can...! Here is my WT
  8. Nice, I would like to swap my 2.2 chilli orange for a 3.2. Man, I thought about the 3.2 but didnt want to wait, now that people are getting the 3.2's I am jealous I placed my order in February. Last month I was told delivery would be January 2013 then a phone call last Wednesday evening from Ford said truck had arrived from Bangkok. I picked up on the Saturday. I am based in Nong Khai and its only the second 3.2 from Ford Nong Khai. I had plenty of offers to take 2.2 wildtracks.
  9. Just picked up my chilli orange 3.2 WT 6AT five days ago, it's been worth the wait.
