What is the connection, USB or HDMI? HDMI is bigger. I'm in Khao Tao; but heading for Dr appt.
HD to WDTVLive: USB
WDTVLive to Yamaha receiver: HDMI
Yamaha Receiver to LG TV: HDMI.

Hope all goes well with the doctor.

Television setup: advice or help urgently needed, please

I've been watching videos for the past few years on my LG Smart TV using an external HD and a WDTV Live playing through a Yamaha RX-V467 receiver, with the sound going direct from the Yamaha to external speakers. The sequence, as I understand it, is sound and video from external HD to WDTV Live to Y...

Re: 64 inch Sony Bravia smart TV repair in Hua Hin

I hope you get some help on this, Kyri, though I'm afraid it won't be from me. I too would be grateful for similar assistance with a fried LG/Yamaha/WDTVLive setup. I'm in Khao Tao.

Re: Indian restaurants in Hua Hin

I haven't tracked the ex Take 5 chef down yet but I'm told he is still cooking up a storm somewhere in HH. If I find him I'll post. I should also try Take 5 again to check out the state of play there now myself. Please do. The original Zafran near the Centara was a fine restaurant and is much misse...

New Year's Eve transport Khao Tao - Hua Hin - Khao Tao

I'm in Khao Tao, but on New Year's Eve I'm planning a dinner in town at which I expect to drink a fair bit of wine. I don't want to drive. I need to arrive in Hua Hin (near Bluport) before 7:30 pm, and expect to want to return to Khao Tao about 11:00 pm. All suggestions will be appreciated - reliabl...

Re: Shoe Repairs in Hua Hin ?

There's a small stand called Dr. Shoes by the railway line at Soi 88. Go up Soi 88 from Phetkasem and turn left immediately before rail crossing. Dr. Shoes is about 30 metres along on the left in the second group of shops. Cheap, adequate, not always open.

Re: Phanaeng curry

Phanaeng seafood curry is one of those dishes I just have to have every now and then, but I normally need to beg them to add extra chili to bring it to a level I like. I've had it in many places, including Phuket, and I've never found it to come spicy hot.

Re: Just had the worst dining experience in 20 + years of coming to Hua hin

I'm sorry the OP had such a dismal experience. I wasn't there that night, but I understand that there were extenuating circumstances (drunks in the bar!) and amends were made. Personally, I have always found the staff pleasant and accommodating. I had lunch at the new location a few days ago, and, t...

I understand it has reopened within the Take 5 Sports Bar opposite the Amari in Takiab, but haven't yet been to its new location.
