How to restart your digital box!
- Article on how to restart / reset an HD box -
Need to restart your digital box?
But not sure how to do it?
- We go through how to restart his box!
There is nothing more annoying than sitting and watching a good movie and all of a sudden the TV picture becomes completely silent or black.
Often it is then even the digital box that has locked / frozen.
Picture of a regular digital box
Sometimes the fault is in the main switchboard and then you can do nothing but wait for a technician to go out and fix the fault.
The error can also be with your TV service provider and they will troubleshoot the problem for you.
But most often it is an electronic error that has occurred in your box and then you need to actively restart / reset the box yourself.
How to do it – Four steps:
1. Start by turning off your HD box and then turn it back on. Sometimes the problem is already solved here:
.
2. If that doesn’t help, unplug the digital box cord / power cord from the wall, wait 20 seconds, and plug it in again:
.
Here’s what the familiar picture looks like when the digital box is starting up:
.
3. If this doesn’t help either, you can go into the digital box’s menu and continue into the system settings and do a so-called “Factory Reset”, that is, a factory reset.
4. And the last option is to call your TV service provider and report your digital box. Then you can sometimes get a new box at no cost.
.
Digial Box Information:
Our experience is that it is very common for digital boxes to lock.
Sometimes people find it difficult to know how to go about resetting their digital box.
The basic solution is often to switch off / unplug the plug from the wall. Then the HD box usually starts working again!
And don’t forget one thing:
- The simplest solution, is usually the hardest to find!
Good luck !

NEW! Make Instant Coffee out of regular coffee !

NEW! Make instant coffee out of regular coffee!
- That’s why “instant coffee” is no longer needed -
Do you want to drink coffee ?
But don’t have time to wait for the coffee maker to finish with their 25 watts?
- Make good instant coffee out of regular coffee!
Tired of buying expensive instant coffee at the stores? Or can you not wait for the coffee maker, who is toasting with his eternal brewing?
Then we have an economical and fast solution for you! – You can actually make instant coffee from regular brew coffee / cook coffee!
.
What you need – 4 things:
Plain coffee, mug, tube stick, and a kettle:
.
Here’s how – 6 easy steps:
1. Start by pouring water into the kettle …
.
… and turn on the kettle:
.
2. While the water is getting hot, pour plenty of plain coffee into a mug:
.
3. Then pour hot water into the mug:
.
4. Now get the pipe tool …
.
… and stir well in the coffee:
.
5. Then allow the coffee to stand for a few minutes:
.
6. After half time, stir again a little. – Then you can help any remaining coffee on the surface to sink:
.
SO! – Now the coffee is ready to enjoy!
.
Background and information about the article
After all, you sometimes get acute coffee sucks and need coffee quickly. But the problem is that it takes a very long time to cook / brew coffee.
And the instant coffee available in the stores sometimes costs a third extra against what regular coffee does – even if there is instant coffee on the shelves, that is.
Therefore, using ordinary coffee as instant coffee is both quick and economical.
Our view is that people are generally not aware that ordinary coffee can be used as instant coffee, but believe that one must use “Instant Coffee” for this process.
- A full and creamy coffee -
What you need to keep in mind is to take extra coffee when doing this, as the preparation process is shorter. You also need to help the coffee to sink, by stirring a little in the coffee sometimes!
It is also important that the water is warm when you pour it, otherwise the coffee will accumulate on the surface of the mug.
The result of this way of making coffee becomes a genuinely full and creamy coffee, since the coffee is not filtered, but prepared together with the water.
Good luck !
Expensive instant coffee that is not really needed

Find the antenna jack on your TV ? – Thats how to !

- How to find your TV’s aerial socket, and connect the TV to the channel selection of your house -

.

Is your TV-screen dead ?

Or is “white noise” the only thing you can see ?

- Then you probably haven’t found the antenna input !

Now we have reviewed a lot of TV sets and to our great surprise, the biggest challenge is often to find the antenna jack on the TV.

The antenna jack is used to connect the TV set to the channel selection of your house.

Example of a regular television set

Today’s TVs have become very technologically advanced and consist of a jungle of various sockets, including scart connectors, component connectors, card slots, HDMI-sockets, network sockets, Firewire sockets, and so on.

This is a bit strange, because the most basic thing to be able to watch TV is to use the aerial socket.

But this basic jack is drowning in all other sockets that a modern TV must be equipped with.

- This is to be compared with today’s mobile phones, which have become so advanced that it’s difficult to understand how to make a call !

Our reviews have shown that a lot of people try to connect the antenna cable to one of the component inputs, with the result that the TV-screen will be noisy or black.

Here’s how to connect your TV to the channel selection of your estate, so you can watch TV:

Look carefully everywhere on the back side of your TV, and try to find the aerial socket. The aerial socket can be placed anywhere on the back of the TV and does not have to be found among all other sockets. The orange arrows show about where the antenna socket should be.

Here’s what the aerial socket should look like. It is a coaxial input and the jack must be a female, that is, a connection with a hollow pin in the middle:

Here’s what the TV-antenna symbol looks like:

Now plug the cord (the plug with the consummate pin in the middle) in the TV’s aerial socket.

To insert the other end into the wall:

This is what the wall socket looks like. There are often two outlets, one of which is intended for TV:

Now, take the other end of the cord (female) and put it into the wall socket where it says “TV”.

How to know if your aerial cord is wrongly connected:

The TV-screen will be completely black or noisy, and you will find that the input is too small for the antenna cable. You probably have connected the antenna cable to a component input !

Picture of the white noise caused by radio waves from space and the sun, and thermal noise from the TV-receiver’s preamp.

Good luck !

.

Information about the review

The review of aerial sockets on TV’s was made in January-February 2019.

Crack eggs without getting shells !

Should you use eggs?
But afraid to include eggshells in the food?
- Then crack the egg against a flat surface, and call the egg in a glass!
We humans are generally too careless when we cook and serve food. In order for the guests to feel safe, we should prepare the food with safety in focus. We should therefore not include ingredients that can get stuck in the throats of guests.
When cracking eggs, small chips of eggshell often loosen and end up in the food. Often we do not care, but since eggshells are very hard at this early stage of bird development, we should be careful that no eggshells that guests can put in their throats or that can stick to guests’ tongue should be included in the food.
An organic, Swedish, certified egg
.
The trick with cracking eggs so that no peel remains come, is to crack the egg against a flat surface so that the egg’s membrane remains completely, and then pour the egg into a glass and look closely for egg chips!
What you need:
Eggs, glasses, and a bowl
.
How to do it – 3 easy steps:
1. Begin by cracking the egg on a flat surface:
.
You should try to crack the egg so that the membrane inside the shell remains as whole as possible:
.
2. Now pour the egg into a glass:
.
.
.
3. Now look in the glass, to see if any peel residue has fallen into the glass:
.
- Do you find any peel residue?
.
Also check under the glass that no shell chips have been hidden anywhere:
.
If you have not found any peel residue, you can pour the egg into the bowl that you intend to use for your baking / cooking:
Done!
If you still find peel residue in the glass, you can take half the egg shell and fish up the peel with:
.
Here we have fished the shellfish:
Since the eggshell is a little slimy, it grabs the shell bit in a very effective way and you can easily get the shell out of the glass. And you save on disk too!
.
More information about this test:
Egg shells contain, among other things, lime, and the structure of the egg changes as the egg approaches hatching.
At the beginning of the chicken / bird’s development, the shell is very hard, but as the chicken consumes the calcium contained in the shell, the shell becomes softer and the chicken can hatch the egg from within.
If you crack an egg directly in a bowl, you could get scraps in the food that the guests can put in their throats.
Good luck !

Set the car heating correctly !

- How to use a car heater outlet -
Do you need to use car heating?
But do not know how to do?
- Calm down, we help you connect your car to the car heater outlet!
You may need to connect your vehicle to a power outlet for engine heating / interior heating, but are not quite sure how to do it?
It can be a bit tricky to set the time correctly, and all outlets have slightly different features for how to set the time.
Picture of a car, connected to an outlet for car heating
What is common for most car heater outlets is that you should first set the clock (current time) and then set the time when you want to use your vehicle. The electrical outlet will then be powered in good time before leaving so that the car heater can keep the car warm.
Often it is intended to use the keypad (4) to increase the time – forwards or backwards – and sometimes you have to press both buttons and sometimes just one button!
Here’s how – 5 steps:
Examples of a car heater outlet, adapted for two vehicles
Review of the various parts of the socket
1. In this electrical outlet, connect the power cord to your car. The outlet for engine heat / interior heating usually sits somewhere near the bumper of the car. It is often a special type of grounded cable (with three pins) to use, which is extra safe to use outdoors.
2. This is an earth fault switch / personal protection switch. It determines if there should be an earth fault somewhere in the equipment. If the earth fault switch should turn on, you can often reset it yourself using the tab.
3. Test button for the earth fault switch. This button can be pressed periodically to check that the switch is working.
4. Buttons to set the clock / departure time. Start by setting the clock (current time) by holding down both buttons so that the time starts to flash. Then press one of the buttons until you find the current time. After a while, the numbers often stop flashing.
To set the time for when you want to use your car, press one of the buttons. Then step on one of the buttons until you find the right departure time. After a while, the clock (current time) starts to appear again.
5. This is a reset / reset button. Often you need to unscrew a screw first and insert a stick into the hole so that the socket is reset. When the socket is reset, all settings that you have deleted are removed and the socket is restored to its factory settings. On some models of sockets, both buttons should be pressed for at least three seconds instead.
.
Car heater outlet information
It can be a little tricky to understand how to use a socket for car heaters.
Our experience is that many people do not manage to set the clock / departure time correctly, with the result that their vehicle is cold when they want to use the car.
It can be good to spend a few minutes at the outlet and try to get the hang of how everything works.
It is basically the same principle when setting a car heater outlet, as when setting your clock radio.
You can use both electric motor heater and interior heater for your car. This increases the possibility for the car to start and for a comfortable car ride.
