Are they sending filters to everyone? by Max Demian
I've just received an at800 filter through the door, though I get all my Freeview TV from Crystal Palace - highest UHF channel 30 = 550 MHz or so - nowhere near the 800 MHz used by 4G. (I live in Buckinghamshire.) I've tried plugging end A of the short cable into socket A of the filter and I think I'll need a hammer. I suppose they are sending them out on some kind of 'precautionary...

Here it comes... by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
DTTV RXs picking up muxes from the Angus TX have started popping up a text box telling users that viewing may be 'distrupted' on 17th April and that a re-tune may be needed. I take it that this is the moving of the local deck-chairs to make way for the beastie of 4G. The local paper group a few weeks ago had a two-page pull-out proudly showing their 'team', complete with email addresses, phone...

A trick of the weather. by Ian Field
A nice sunny day - I could be out in the shed waving spanners at something. Equally suddenly - freeview reception has been acceptable, so I sat watching telly instead.

Seeking a media player which will restart files where I left off... by Lobster
I'm looking for a media player - ie something to play video files from an SD disk/USB drive whatever, but have a slightly unusual specification which is not something that ever seems to be highlighted in the bumf. I want to use this device with a TV which currently sits in our spare room at the end of my rowing machine, as basically the only way I can summon up the enthusiasm to use the...

Connecting twin satellite cable to receiver by rbel[_2_]
I will be running twin WF100 2x7mm cable through an exterior wall to an interior position adjacent to a receiver/HTPC. Is there likely to be a discernable difference in the signal between connecting directly to the receiver using F plugs and terminating the cable at a twin wall F plug socket and then running fly leads to the receiver? -- rbel

Who runs Movie Mix? by Brian Gaff
Do they pride themselves on having the most terrible films and the crappiest rerun series in the UK? If so they seem to be spot on. Bay watch, really? Who owns this station. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

+1 channels by viewer[_4_]
I'm tired of the proliferation of +1 channels, eg ITV1+1. Ch4 +1. What we need are -1 (minus 1) channels. Especially on Channel 4, Racing UK and At the Races. This way, I can see the winners, back them, and never need to work again.

Freeview lite by David[_9_]
Out in caravan this weekend and the only terrestrial transmission was one of those doing limited number of stations. First thought was these people living here missing some important programs. Then I was shocked to find a couple that I was receiving were +1 ones. Regards David

Humax Foxsat-HD box report by David.WE.Roberts
Well, it does seem better than the Bush - at least it hasn't overheated yet. More features, better menu layout. However the iPlayer bit seems dubious to say the least. Software not updated since 2010 so a really old product (in technical terms).

Freeview Ch 303 Red Button HD by Mark Carver
Just popped up today I think, on Ch 303 (on DVB-T2 sets only) a holding page for a soon to launch BBC Red Button: HD service. So is that the fifth 'unsold' slot on the HD mux finally being utilised ? -- Mark Please replace invalid and invalid with gmx and net to reply.

OLEDs and such by Steve Thackery[_2_]
Colleagues, The ongoing progress of OLED displays led me to wonder something: does anyone know why organic LEDs are considered suitable for making TV and computer displays, but ordinary LEDs are not? Presumably each pixel needs an RGB triplet whichever technology is used. Each sub-pixel will require it's own drive current. This must be the same basic requirement regardless of which type of...

Reception - prevailing conditions. by Ian Field
For a few days now, Freeview has been a bit iffy (SG6) - I've also noticed one of my MSF60 radio controlled clocks hasn't been updating properly.

Not that I'm a shopping channel watcher, but this channel on Freeview has not been there long and when I've checked recently the channel is blank. Brian -- From the Bed of Brian Gaff. The email is valid as Blind user.

Ch 5 are aload of idiots. by Brian Gaff
Well no I'm not going to moan about their competitions that a trained iguana could get right, its their audio description. Monday and tuesday night had a two part CSI. the gimmick is the first was Las Vagas, the second New York, but they were parts of the same story. They audio describe the first part and not the second part. Taking the **** or what. OK, its only a tv show, but with this level...

Sky News transponder issues on freesat by F[_2_]
I've changed nothing on my Foxsat-HDR, nor on the Hauppage card in my desktop, but over the past few days Sky News has been fine, or breaking up, or simply AWOL with a no/bad signal message and signal strength and quality both at 0%. The other channels on the same transponder also go missing. Oddly enough, the channel has returned in the evenings, showing signal strength at 85% and quality...
