Wireless Headphones and Plasma TVs

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Due to the power that plasma screens put out (and the frequency) – they interfere with Infra Red headphones and make them unusable. How to overcome this? Well if you use a PC for playing your movies and TV (eg a media centre)- you can get a bluetooth headset that supports audio play, and then the interference is history! Check out our catalog for the Plantronics 590 model with up to 10m range and lightweight (and if you need a bluetooth adaptor that support audio streaming get it here)

Network Drive Picture thumbnails don’t appear in Vista

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Recently I was moving my photos off my hard drive and onto a network drive for storage – but then I discovered when I looked at the folder in thumbnail view (View->Thumbnails from the menu) the picture would flash on then go to a standard icon for all the images. After hunting around it seems this is BY DESIGN for Vista – so heres how to turn thumbnails on –  Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press ENTER. Go to the following branch - User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Explorer.  And then set the following to ENABLED - Turn off the display of thumbnails and only display icons on network folders. Log Off (or Restart) – and you are done.
