New Nexus 7 Help (2nd Gen) / Re: Nexus 7 screen

Could it be you have the brightness set to Auto and the orientation is having an effect on the sensor?

I'm assuming your talking about the Netflix application here? Your not using Netflix through Chrome are you?

If your using the app then you could try clearing the data and cache from the Netflix app first. If that doesn't work then clear data, uninstall and reinstall as Prime has said.

Or if your in the clock app and you've pressed stop you can reset with the arrow icon just below to the left of the stopwatch.

Yup, as StewMc has said just drag an app icon, folder or widget to the right side and another screen will appear.
As soon as you remove all icons, folders and widgets from the screen it will be removed.

This can be done but you'll need an external power supply if the external HDD doesn't have it's own power supply. To do this you'd either need a powered USB hub or an external battery pack. If you go the battery pack route you'd also need one of the "Y" OTG cables so as to power the external HDD whilst connected to your Nexus 7.
Personally I found this all to be somewhat of a nightmare having to carry all the extra parts required so I bought myself a Seagate Wireless Plus.

I think you can use MX Player in conjunction with Nexus Media Importer but I'm unsure as my devices are rooted and before purchasing the Wireless Plus I used Stickmount.

It depends where the video is from, if it was an ad on You Tube then no unfortunately you won't be able to stop this happening.

Try this fix for ADM and see if it fixes both your issues...

1. Open Google Settings from your device's apps menu.
2. Touch Android Device Manager. Uncheck Allow remote factory reset.
3. Go to your device's main Settings menu, then touch Apps > All < Google Play services. Touch Clear Data. Note that this action doesn't remove personal data.
5. Go back to Google Settings and select Allow remote factory reset.
6. Restart your device. Allow around 5 minutes and refresh Android Device Manager.

Yes randy, you'd use an OTG cable with a the drive as you would a card reader. As Prime has mentioned I too am rooted and use an app called Stickmount but there is also Nexus Media Importer.
Yes the quality is the same wherever the media is stored  but if your playing movies directly from a card then a class 10 is recommended, read speeds are faster. That's another reason I prefer Thumb drives, no need to worry about class.

The 2012 box is a dark grey and the 2013 box is blue... But as Prime has said the tabs themselves have clear physical differences like the camera on the back of the 2013 but also the 2012 had a silver edge to the bezel or around the outside edge of the tab.

The silver edge of the bezel can clearly be seen in this picture of my now gone 2012 Nexus 7.

New Nexus 7 Help (2nd Gen) / Re: poor sound on nexus7 (2013)

I have reasonable sound from the built-in speakers and I have no problems with headphones or a speaker connected via a 3.5mm headphone jack or Bluetooth.

I think there's much true in Matt's comment, a firm press and that final click for full connection of the 3.5mm jack.

I have no issues with storage on my 32Gb Nexus 7, as you say there are many options available to you including an SD Card reader and an OTG cable but trust me thumb drives are far cheaper.
As for music I'm an advocate of Google Play Music which is a cloud music player, you upload your music to Google's servers and away you go. If your worried about not having internet at times, worry not as Music can be cached to your Nexus 7 for offline listening.
As for now many, that really depends on the quality of the copy. 1080p? 720p? In other words how big the movie file is.
720p movies tend to be around a 1Gb, maybe a little more or a little less... But as a Nexus 7's internal storage is shared it's going to depends what else you gave on the device. A 32Gb Nexus 7 has about 26.76Gb of storage available, you'll have to account for installed applications and the your music so if you have around 1Gb of apps and 2Gb of music, you should get about 23 movies on the Nexus 7. As I said, it highly depends on what else is stored in the Nexus 7, games, other media et cetera and the fine size if those movies.

Personally, I add movies via a thumb drive, watch them and delete them anyway so as to make room for the next lot of media I want to put on my N7.

I see no issue with the lack of expandable storage on the Nexus 7 and it's a great device but the choice is yours.

Just out of curiosity, what Memo Pad did you buy your daughter?

No worries... glad I could help.

Nexus 7 Help / Re: Inbox on Tiscali account on lay
« on: February 08, 2014, 03:23:59 AM »
Small world isn't it... lol

Tiscali already support IMAP, you just need to input those settings into your phones email client as you did the pop3 settings. I'm not promising it'll work but it's surely with a try.

Firewalls on Android work similarly to those on a PC but only stop selected applications from accessing the internet.

You could try something like this...


I've not used it so I'm unsure how well it works.

You could also take a look at Kaspersky or Lookout apps available on the Play store. These are Antivirus applications but include a firewall.

Personally I don't use an Antivirus nor a firewall, Android isn't like your PC and Antivirus software isn't really necessary.

Are you rooted?

If you were rooted then there are several options available. Here's is a dedicated Firewall application...


Personally if your rooted though I would recommend you look into App ops shortcuts like these...



Hope that's of some help to you.
