    Thanks Chocha Monger. It appears to be moving faster than I expected given the price hurdle for a new TV in the Philippines. Just an FYI, I believe your TV does do analog; next time you scroll through the Input Source, there should be something like ATV for Analog TV, versus DTV for Digital TV. It should list your HDMI and other inputs too.

The number of channels will depend on your location and any obstacles in the way of the broadcasting transmitter. You are unlikely to find local programming interesting beyond news reports. Here are the digital stations in different areas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...he_Philippines.

I think the Philippines is NTSC like the US. The question is how many channels are analog NTSC and how many are going digital? I heard the digital is different from the US. I assume a digital box could handle that if there is enough on the digital spectrum.

    I also think you can get a satellite dish still as it has been many years ago that I had one from the Philippines.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    IMHO, the share apps have greater risks because the vendors are smaller entities. Had an AirBnB serve questionable stuff for breakfast. Have also gotten sick from room service at major luxury hotels.

    I see the issue differently here. I find airbnb to be little different than the yellow pages or newspapers that print adverts. I accept the risk of not using a hotel (higher risk) to accept the reward (higher reward), such as a lower tariff and better amenities. The problem is some consumers want the same protections offered by a hotel (lower risk) and still to maximise their own reward (higher reward). If a person has a low tolerance for risk they ought to use hotels; they haven't ceased existing and no one compels them to use airbnb. Airbnb endeavours to remove some of the risk (for example when I notify them within 24 hours the flat wasn't as advertised I'll get a different one), but it doesn't have the same control as hotel management. It never claims this, and I'm not paying for the hotel experience.

    Airbnb doesn't disavow all responsibility, but it can't accept it to the extent the hotel does either. They're not the same. Let's keep in mind there are times when hotels screw up and don't have vacant rooms to relocate you. What then? A hotel may aid you in finding another place, but perhaps it's left up to you. You still have the hassles of packing, transport, re-check in, etc. Heaven help you if there's a major convention in town.

    Airbnb is an alternative, but since hotels continue to exist Airbnb is not the replacement. People haven't lost anything, i.e. hotels, but they gained another option that falls on the spectrum of couch surfing, camping, and hotels. Yet some choose to see this as a loss of some sort.

    As for hotels spying on guests, http://time.com/4914689/hotels-hidden-cameras-spy/ and https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...om/314480001/. I'm certain no hotel management advocates or tolerates spying (though there have been incidents of hotels allowing state intelligence agencies to do so, and not part of a criminal investigation), yet it doesn't exercise full control over its employees because it doesn't assign each one a minder, and then a minder to mind the minder to thwart connivance.

    I haven't been there for many years.

    As I get older, I don't hardly ever snow ski or scuba dive.

    Also, the prices for the Phuket go-gos girls are getting relatively expensive. Very expensive to barfine 2 or 3 at a time.

    If you need more PM me.
    Oh God, it sounds like heaven! Diving by day and cheap schoolgirls by night!

    I don't think I have allowed enough time to go as far as Sabang this trip, but when I go next time I will plan on it for sure!!

    IMHO the best diving spots are now in Indonesia.

    I've used Airbnb pretty much since I first started coming to Manila 3-4 years ago. Never once had a problem, only once had to wait more than 10 minutes for check-in. Always found the owners to be conscientious, reasonable and (pardon the pun) accommodating.

    Not sure I agree with Huts on the the MSM bias. I think a more likely suggestion is that Airbnb (being newer to the market, as with Uber) is more open to unscrupulous operators (landlords) who may well take advantage, whereas the more established hotel industry is well aware of litigious liability should cameras or monitoring devices be found by a guest.

    Another thing to bear in mind is that when staying in an Airbnb and using the inhouse wifi, any data you're transferring is potentially open to misuse should the landlord know a thing or two about network security. However this is pretty much true of any public wifi network.

Will Airbnb step in to help you find another condo? No. Do you believe that the host is the only one responsible? Does saying that these situations are rare absolve Airbnb of responsibility? Even if the host later returns your money, that does not resolve the conflict (it would be niaive to say that you paid nothing and got nothing, therefor the situation is resolved; but I think you know that is not the case: you are due more in reparation for your inconvenience of having to ride around in a taxi to find new digs, or possibly even more if you cannot find new digs in the same low price range as your airbnb unit).
    I had an airbnb host not show up for 90 minutes in vegas while it was 115 f outside. I tried to cancel with airbnb that takes 30 minutes then I have to wait 1 HR before they can cancel so this is 2.5 hrs. Well last second they call me grrr. All sorry of course. Then they don't run ac during day and only down to 90 f at night unreal. After 2 months airbnb gave me a gift certificate. Never again. If I do only with 5 star super hosts and plenty of reviews or flexible cancellations.

Oh no! How often does a report of a crime in a regular old taxi make the international news? Almost never. Heck, it's usually not even a front page event for a major city's local newspaper unless it's an almost crime-free place like Tokyo. But when a crime (or even a minor dispute) involves an Uber driver it's whipped up and blown out of proportion. It seems a large segment of the population demands perfection from particular businesses and certain groups of people, so any deviance from it, which is an outlier event, is taken to be the default and proof of a systemic problem.

    How many Airbnb flats are rented daily in Manila, in the Philippines, and worldwide? A bet hundreds, thousands, and many tens of thousands respectively.

    People need to get a grip.

    I've seen stories like these pop up over the years about love hotels in Korea and even the famous novelist Gay Talese researched and wrote The Voyeur's Motel last year, a story that included alleged murders.
