1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    My last 2 mobiles were Motorola Moto G5s and Moto G6, the 5s worked fine and my GF bought me the G6 for my birthday, the cast feature worked fine, until recently, my TV is a Sony smart tv and every few days, I would be making use of this feature so I can watch something on the bigger screen and see more detail. Today, I tried to connect, so I could watch MotoGP via my phone and it won't even see the TV. I spent an hour checking al the settings on the TV and phone, nothing.
    I did a Google search and it seems that Motorola have disabled this feature, so they can push the Chromecast. Does anyone know if this is true, a work around so I can fix it or is it a case of buying Chromecast or finding another phone with the "cast" feature?

    Motorola phones use a vanilla android install, eg: basic facilities only, you have to have a chromecast device and app to cast from phone to tv, unless you are willing to root and hack the device?

    I've always used a Chromecast as they are so easy to use, don't know if this would still work for you though. Could be the phone holding you back

    It might be worth trying this as it worked for me, my problem was a little different to yours though. When casting straight to my tv from my iPhone it works for a few secs then freezes so i followed this link and downloaded youtube to my fire stick , It casts to the fire stick instead of the tv and does so faultlessly . No good of course if you don't use a fire stick or if your phone will not cast at all

    Androids built in screen casting used the Miracast standard which is what the TV manufacturers (including Sony) supported for screen casting, then Google dropped support in 2015 (Android 6) to push Chromecast but your Moto 6 would have shipped with Android 8 so a bit puzzled what it was using for screen casting before it stopped.

    Chromecasts do work very well and highly recommended. :up:

    I wonder if an android update has removed the feature?

    Apparently the feature is still there, but its been disabled, I've read that you can re-enable it, but you have to root and hack the device, loads of info on this on the net..... no idea if this works or not....
