Downloading Videos- Help Needed

Could anyone please help me to download video from this unit into my PC running Win7. Google searches and the Sony website are not specific with their data. No drivers available for Win 7 or IEEE Host Controllers need to be installed etc etc.

The unit uses a mini cassette recording medium.

I would like to hear from anyone who may have resolved this problem before I consider replacing it.

Recommendation- Pool Cleaner

A nasty algae recently formed on the bottom of our pool and grew and extended up the walls and into the water as you watched(almost)

We found Pooltec on Digamextra and Jeff came the following morning. After a couple of hours work, the problem was sorted and the pool usable. Much to the joy of four little grandchildren who had arrived that day. Jeff then returned the morning after, to check the state of the water and adjust it, completing the work and to instruct us on proper, and hopefully simple ,pool care with printed charts etc.

I don’t think you could find a better and more sympathetic service anywhere. An extraordinarily patient man. I can recommend him unreservedly.  Very reasonable cost too.

Rental – Long Term Needed
2 plus beds, own pool, outside space. Near or in a village (not remote). If beach side, pool not a necessity. Air con and fireplace or log burner. Good internet speed.

We will be able to afford up to 800 euros per month.

Our lease finishes here next May so there is no rush to find a home but we are going to visit Spain as many times as required in order to find our ideal home.

Our first visit is on 26th September this year for a week.

We have booked a B and B in Torrox as a base only so we can drive around and hopefully get a feel for the different areas.

What’s On- Yoga Summer Special

I would like to invite you to a Yoga Summer special 2017 , 2 h Yin Yoga on Saturday, 22th of July, 10 h to 12 h at Shiva Center Torrox – price 15 €.

We will start with Pranayama and than going to a deep practice of Yin Yoga which is a very soft & gentle Yoga and suits everybodyLike always – we will end with a little relaxation.

Yin Yoga is a passive practice, which involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. Of course always adapted to every single student. In long term Yin Yoga gives you a lot of flexibility & is very healthy for your joints. With Yin Yoga as well you can correct damaged postures and it is the perfect Yoga for hot temperatures.

Everybody is welcome. The workshop will suit you all – beginners & new yogis as well advanced yogis. Try out a different Yoga style and get inspired.

What’s On– Jukebox Bandits   poster

Hi folks, Jukebox Bandits are playing live at Restaurante/Bar Cerezo (Paco’s) in Canillas de Albaida this coming Friday 21 July from 8.30pm. Booking highly recommended, call 952 553 018 or 699 933026 for a table, but you can still just come along for a drink. And our guest singer will be Kees de Leeuw who will be singing 3 Rolling Stones songs with all the actions, not to be missed!

Jukebox Bandits are: Rod Jones on keyboards, Ian Hayton on acoustic guitar, bass and vocals, Marshall Dixon on drums and percussion (away at the moment), Ken Peacock on saxophone and flute and Mitch France on guitars, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and vocals.

They play an eclectic mix of pop, blues, jazz, rock and folk standards from Britain, America, Ireland and Spain on a variety of instruments. From Dire Straits to The Dubliners, from Manu Chao to Jason Mraz. The music starts mellow (whilst people are eating), gradually picking up the tempo and culminating with the dance set including standards like Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”, REM’s “Losing My Religion” and The Mavericks’ “Dance the Night Away”.

For all future gigs, samples of their music and to join the mailing list go to: www.jukeboxbandits.com
