  1. GST on Amazon buys

    Yes the report on the radio this afternoon said it had passed the senate, but the implementation day has been delayed for 12 months.
  2. Oppo's Codes for the IR Control

    You probably will have to set up a new device or action on the Harmony for one of the players using code 2, then use the learn IR code feature to program in the new codes for the new device. Once the remote is in code 2, you then place it behind the Harmony and press each relevant button to learn the new codes.
  3. GST on Amazon buys

    I think the legislation has not been finalised yet, maybe a problem in the Senate.
  4. I think the special effects are what cost so much. It takes multiple digital artists thousands of hours to create the effects for movies like Rogue One etc
  5. Monkey Magic Reboot!

    I remember watching this in my early twenties.
  6. I voted Episode IV - A New Hope as the worst because I can't stand the way Mark Hamill spends the whole movie shouting, even though shouting was an acceptable form of acting in the 70's.
  7. Does Anyone Bother With Internet Radios?

    Apps that do streaming on your phone e.g. TuneIn Radio use the internet radio stream. I don't know of any smart phones that have digital radio tuners in them, although I could be wrong.
  8. Jb, You've Conned Me Again!

    No I've only ever redeemed Australian Ultraviolets.
  9. Jb, You've Conned Me Again!

    I used the Flixster app, all I know is that the last time I tried to use it when I was away (I was in Byron Bay), it kept saying it could not get a license to play the movie. It was fully downloaded.
  10. Jb, You've Conned Me Again!

    Just be careful, I tried to use Flixster when I was on holiday, but I couldn't get it to work due to a flakey internet connection. Even if you download the movie to your laptop, it still tries to verify your "license" to watch the movie through the internet. These days I can't be bothered with Flixster.
  11. michaeldvd.com.au is still active, however the reviews tend to be a bit sparse.
  12. Blu Ray Bargains Thread

    That is only if you sign up in-store I believe, if you are already on the mailing list the extra 10% off was for today only. By the way aren't Australian bargains supposed to be in the other thread?
  13. Blu Ray Bargains Thread

    It's normally 5% extra off not 10% extra, and they don't offer it every time there is a sale.
  14. Blu Ray Bargains Thread

    The extra 5% off is only offered occasionally, not every 20% off sale. Also the extra discount is usually for one day only.
  15. Streaming through Yamaha receiver

    Are you sure the Galaxy is actually sending the stream to the soundstreamer? Normally everything will work with an RCA cable.
