    Re: Auto-Gate and V-Kool

    What a friend of mine did was to have a small window cut at where ever it makes sense to let the IR out. And press the remote control against that window. Might work?

    Re: Who do you bank with?

    No. HSBC is not bad. Just that they do have some staff that is a bit condescending when you are dealing with them and they have your balance in front of them.
