Using Chromecast gets over the sound problem as one is then using the TV sound.  I am quite happy with my Chromecast, use it chiefly for IPlayer and the like and also for films or TV shows not on players purchased, either downloaded or streamed, to the Hudl2 from, in my case, GooglePlay (other film purchase sites are available!).  Needs a spare HDMI connection on the TV or connect through an HDMI switch. Good purchase for about 30.

Well, I've bit the bullet, or should I say the good lady wife has, she's treating me to the "Google Nexus 7, 32 GB"  ;D ;D ;D

Well done Frank! Hope this one works for you.

And another question - does anyone use a tablet to hold their database and update it? I've had a look around since my last post and most of the apps are for use with an online tree or for view only. I could have really used one that I could view and update when I was in Scotland recently. If you do update them, how do you transfer the updates to your PC and main tree? I know some can send emails but does that mean manually sending an email with changes in or is there an automatic feature that sends when changes are made?

I believe with GedView you can update. Unsure how the updates transfer to your database though - I've never used it, but vaguely remember that it is a feature.
