The Terminator - I'll not be back by Dan[_3_]
I recently signed up with Virgin Media for 100Mb broadband, taking phone & their freeview TV package. I duly cancelled the lot after finding I was in an oversold area making the broadband unusable at peak times. Anyway, they sent me a box to return their kit which had a note giving instructions on how to unplug it all etc. At the end it said IMPORTANT! pull (not unscrew) the cable from the...

TOT: Clickbait crap by MR
You've all seen them, these very annoying little boxes at the bottom of web pages. You know the £3 slimming pill that will lose you 2 stone in a week, the "weird" trick to enable you earn £5,000 an hour at home. How the Casinos don't want you to know this, 85 year old woman looks like age 30 and so on. The funniest are surely the ones that seem to believe you are living in the most populous...

tv aerial masts by Stephen[_7_]
Hello, I am some distance from the tv transmitter, so I may need a masthead amp. I can get into the loft to install an aerial but I'm not brave enough to go on the outside and put an aerial at height. Considering that my signal may already be weak, is it worth trying to DIY an aerial in the loft, or should I just pay someone to fit an external one?

Help needed with smart TV by Roger Mills[_2_]
Just bought a Samsung 49KU6470 smart TV, which seems to work pretty well, and the picture and sound are quite good. But there are a couple of issues which I can't get my head around. 1. Voice commands. My set understands voice commands but the manual - even the downloaded one, let along the quick start guide which came with the set - only has very cursory information. Nowhere can I find a...

OT: Ten bob by Bill Wright[_3_]
Today Hil said I needed some new pumps. I always wear my pumps in hot weather. Hil said they were a disgrace. She made me go to a shoe shop when we were in town getting a full refund from a jeweller for the watch I bought her for her birthday that keeps stopping. In the shoe shop Hil found some pumps. She made me try them on. They fitted. I said, "How much?" "Don't worry about that...

wolfbane - problems? by David[_14_]
A long time since I last used wolfbane to point an aerial but as I'm at a campsite and all the aerials seem to be pointing in different directions with different vertical/horizontal alignments I thought I would give it a go. Site is there but doesn't load on my Android tablet. The link is http://www.wolfbane.net/cgi-bin/tvd.exe? from a Google search.

This is really taking the **** by Graham.[_12_]
I think we, or perhaps the other place, were talking about the active "fills" in the margins of pillar-boxed 9x16 amateur mobile phone footage. Well how about this one on "That's Manchester", a trailer for the film "The Good Companions" (1957), which was shot in 2.35:1 correctly shown in a letterbox on a 16:9 screen, but the black bars filled with dynamic picture information? It's not even...

Why don't they... by Brian Gaff
Instead of messing about with radio stations tacked on to different freeview multiplexes, simply build one in each area with all the radio stations only on it. Also, in my view in these times of hd and surround sound, the minimum we should expect should be stereo on radio stations in my view. I mean even on DAB BBC4x is in mono but stereo on the web and freeview, whiile some if not most of...

Parliamentary mathematician needed by Brian Gaff
No they don't they are probably in the pub. They have what is called a division. In my view this need to be changed. There should be free annon votes just like we have in the elections. Seems to me that a lot of those who don't want to be pinned down are mysteriously missing when a contentious vote takes place. Brian

Rattle by Brian Gaff
