    The Cyclone is a brilliant piece of kit and so easy to use. You can also plug a portable HDD straight into it and play movies, music, show photo's etc accessing the menu's on your TV screen.

    My TV will only recognise and play hard drives with a FAT32 system, using cyclone it also recognises and plays NTFS file systems (a lot of portable hard drives are formatted with this type of file system)

    At present I'm using a 350GB usb driven HDD and its fully loaded with an awful lot of movies (200+) :thumb::thumb:

    Got mine from Misco's, link here:-

    Terry when you try your new led lamps let us know what you think and perhaps you have a link to where you got them

    Hi Jhorsf I got them from this seller
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190478117511&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    they took about 20 days to arrive -xmas post- I will stick a couple in later today for comparison and let you know what I think :thumb:I did not need to get them as I have never ran out of power yet :Rofl1: but at the price it was a case of wanting rather than needing :Rofl1: - goes against all my advise- :Rofl1: but even SWMBO did not object :Rofl1: although I got a slight bo----ing :Rofl1:

    Here we go -The first pic was taken with the old bulbs in - second the leds :thumb:
    No difference in camera settings - auto no flash - in complete darkness all blinds closed and as near as damm I tried to keep everything the same ish :Rofl1:
    I must admit that I was very surprised to find the contrast in the two pics because to my eye there was very little difference, but I was expecting the leds not to be as bright so again pleasantly surprised.It could be my crap photo skills ( looks on the first I may have moved slightly ) or the camera detected different light :Rofl1::Wink: Anyway all in all pleased with the LEDS and for a quid each no grumbles :thumb:
