    So much for that - logged a return - the extender works, but if resolution changes - everything goes haywire - only way to return order is turning off the amp and projector - and turning back on again.

    I'm suffering on the Note 8... Ready to go back - waaay too buggy, random restarts, frequently. Random shutdowns. Broken camera, device not certified, etc... Way too unstable still, also tried multiple roms.

    So - I can smell if my neighbours around me have a fire going (two of them have these ovens) - but - they burn proper wood, and I like the smell of a fire.

    I've done that once or thrice in my firepit - but its nowhere near neighbours. Dry garden refuse dissappears in seconds.

    Installed last night.... was a little easier than I hoped - CAT7 cable pushed up the conduit, before I know it it hit the roofing (I actually still needed to run it along the skirting board - but - since it was out the conduit, it wasn't coming back). I ordered a long enough cable so that the...

    Just looking at it now - I won't be able to use it inside. Think the next step is testing one of these, cant recall ever needing to use the "scaffold" type setup - and usually store it like this anyway. Four less hinges to fail. (my weight is also anywhere between 90 and 110kg)

    I know its not local, but my wife added some to her shopping from banggood (and they're shipping to SA with Buffalo) - ended up about R150 landed each - They weren't the most stable, so I flashed them with Tasmota - and been working fine since. Wasn't the easiest getting configured right with...

    Another thing - chatting to the various places - it seems even mildly wet wood is a problem for these ovens... Hydrofire had some decent wood - so asked them for the source.

    Don't affect them - no where near a window of theirs - if they decided to go up a floor, it would be a problem - but - if they did that, I wouldn't be on terms with them that I cared. Interesting question though, as you don't require permission to put one in - as you would a built in braai -...

    Also thinking that... This one has given a good run, but compared to today's quality... No thanks.

    In other news, to finish off my bar removal renovations - we went and had a look at fireplaces late this afternoon - and from my short list, we've settled on the following: https://hydrofire.co.za/product/rubin-lux-red/ Installed price is R33,700. Trying to see if I can scrap the funds...
