    CCTV now wants a password!

    Hi all I purchased a cheapo 4 channel, 2 camera cctv set up some years ago just to ‘test the concept’. It was more for wildlife watching than security. To be honest the camera quality and recording have been perfect for it’s intended usage. It was manufactured by Xenta. On setting up...

    Xenta 4CH DVR 1080p with 2 Black Bullet Cameras 1080p

    Hi all, maybe someone can help here? I purchased the above system from Ebuyer for two reasons. One it was cheap (:)), and two I wanted to have a play with something I had never had before. Didn't really get it for security, more to monitor wildlife in my garden. Unfortunately I have no...

    'Cam Lines' in carpet?

    After one year of fitting, my hall carpet showed distinct lateral lines, both on and off the main wear areas. After reporting to the retailer (who may be named later...) they sent one of their people to investigate. He said there appeared to be a problem and took some photos. They then responded...

    Ecotec Plus 831 & Honeywell CM721/BDR91

    Hi again all, a little teaser you may be able to help me with? First of all, this does not cause me a great deal of pain, more a sense of bewilderment !! I had a new boiler (as above) fitted in September, linked to an existing Honeywell CM721 Wireless Programmable Room Thermostat and relay...

    Groaning boiler !! Savio/Biasi 428S

    I have a groaning boiler !! After running DHW for a while, on closing the DHW tap, the boiler seems to have a big groan as it turns off. It doesn’t do it on CH turning off, so I have ruled out the pump or fan, but can only think that the other ‘moving parts’ are the gas valve and the...

    Biasi/Savio 428S - Pressure issue?

    Hi again and apologies for posting new thread just after closing the last one, but need a little more advice. You may recall I fitted a Honeywell 927 Wireless Programmer to this system and after various teathing probs all settled down nicely. Previously I controlled room temps via the...

    Hi I have had several great replies to my questions re this boiler and its past issues, but I have probably the simplest general question to ask now. This system was not installed with a roomstat, (pump always running) and for years I have adjusted house temp via boilers stat.ie quarter on...

    Erratic DHW on Savio 424s

    HI again all. I have had some great support from this site in the past so here's hoping all the good guys are still around (Tony Agile etc !!) MY thermo shower (Grohe) has recently been delivering varying temperature HW, going from hot to cold and back within seconds. At first suspected...

    Biasi 424s - erratic

    Hi all Sorry to repost but better info this time. Above boiler initially seemed to be cycling ( 20 secs on/150 secs off) on CH quarter thermo setting. Boiler would fire, temp lights go to 60 degrees, boiler stops, temp lights go back down to 40 degrees within seconds. Bloke at Biasi...
