How close to the screen... by rbel[_2_]
....would you need to sit to observe the difference between 1080 and 720 on SD and HD? At 10 feet would there be a noticeable difference with a 42 inch screen? -- rbel

Good card for Freesat HD on PC by David.WE.Roberts
Having looked at PVRs I am thinking of progressing my PC build by adding a decoder. So - assuming I am running Windows (but could run Linux under VMWare player) can anyone recommend a PCI/PCIe card which is good for a build- your-own PVR? PC has HDMI output but there is space for a graphics card (or two). A card which does TV and Satellite would be nice, of course, but not

Shock from roof-mounted solar panels by Bill Wright[_2_]
A warning to aerial installers! My son Paul removed an old aerial from the chimney and put it down on the roof, where it happened to touch the frame of a solar panel. When he picked it up he received a severe electric shock and he was lucky he wasn’t thrown off the roof. Obviously the solar installation wasn’t properly earthed. Needless to say he warned the householder that his solar...

It's a classic! by Bill Wright[_2_]
Inadequate wall bracket, extra attempted fixing onto the bargeboard, two masts joined using a bit of tube and two exhaust clamps, guy wires fixed to thin metal strips screwed to the wall. It's a...

BT Sport on Freeview? by Brian Gaff
What on earth are they doing. Seems a bit strange. I watched the trailers round once and never saw any mention of it in audio, if that is the right way to put it. Also both those sky channels now say discontinued I noticed. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

Emley Moor DAB by Bill Wright[_2_]
Last night's Look North (Leeds) had a feature about a new DAB service from Emley Moor. The map they showed suggested that the signals would reach here (where I can see Emley out of the window) but in fact I can tune the signal but not get listenable reception. The earlier item was typical Look North lefty bias. They made much of the fact that the Mosques are having a special sermon saying...

You do not have a compatible Freeview HD device. by Alaric
This morning, out of curiosity, I worked my way up through the Freeview channel numbers on my LG TV set which has "Full HD" marked on it. This set has both a Freeview and a Freesat tuner and I generally watch Freesat. While doing this I came upon several Freeview channels (most of which would be of peripheral interest) where a screen message stated inter alia "You do not have a compatible...

mux ID by Bill Wright[_2_]
I always assumed that a DTT receiver tuned-in to one transmitter wouldn't work on another. However we brought a box back here that had been tuned to ch24 Sandy (nothing else had been tuned in; it's a long story) and it sprung to life here on the bench on the weak ch24 Crosspool signal from our Emley Moor aerial. The ID came up as 'Cambridgeshire'(or something). Bill

Dark patch on screen. by Rick[_10_]
A friend of mine owns a 37" Philips 1080P LCD TV, it's recently developed a problem in the form of a large dark smoky patch which has appeared on the left hand side, it's not dead pixels because the picture and correct colours are still definable underneath, also it's not any substance on the outside of the screen, he lives in a well kept modern house with central heating and isn't a smoker,...

Top-Up TV anyone? by Jon[_2_]
Is there anyone out there actually got TUTV? I've notice most electrical like CurrysPCWorld don't seem to sell any TUTV PVR hardware, and now Sky battle with BT have seen the sports channels being pulled from the platform. Will it be soon joining ON/ITV Digital in the afterlife.

Reception on things not meant for it. by Brian Gaff
Its been a while since I had this sort of trouble and nothing has been moved or changed, but last night i could hear mumbling and a whine during listening to my stereo,which was connected to my tv. after much crawling around the floor I found that it was my sub woofer tuned to radio China International. a bit of lead wiggling and unplugging and replugging eventually reduced it, but it does...

The Secret Life of the Sun by Bill Wright[_2_]
In 'The Secret Life of the Sun' we were told that we are threatened with catastrophic global cooling. How this slipped though the BBC's censor I don't know. Heads will roll I expect. A couple of minutes before the end of the programme I almost jumped out of my skin (which in view of the state of it would be a good thing) when a loud and highly distorted voice over-rode the normal sound and...

S Video lead by Sla#s[_2_]
My Media PC finally packed up completely whilst I was trying to watch LeMans Live. After several years of nonstop problems* it's somewhat of a relief to throw it out! Managed to get an old laptop to connect to my media switch box however the S Video on the laptop had seven pins but the switch box S Video socket only had four pins and a separate two phonos for audio. I can't seem to find any...

DTT receiver behaviour by Bill Wright[_2_]
This is pertinent to a recent discussion here, but I can't remember which. Today I needed to tune-in ten Humax PVR-9150T PVRs. I took them to a place where I could receive the relevant tx. Unfortunately there were other signals around which I couldn't filter out completely. I attenuated the aerial feed so the wanted signals were 33 to 38dBuV and the unwanted ones were 10 to 20dBuV. The...

Hi, I live in a New Build Flat and I have 2 bedrooms.

Question Time last Thursday by Scott[_2_]
Without wanting to prompt any comments about politics or politicians, did anyone have any difficulty with recording Question Time on Thursday 20 June? I have it set as a series link on BBC One HD (Scotland) and it did not record. The previous edition recorded and next week's edition is set to record so I wonder what happened to this week's edition.

DIY Freesat by rbel[_2_]
I have set up the dish on a mast in the garden in a relatively unobtrusive position (particular thanks to Java Jive for the invaluable alignment app) and the TBS tuner card in my pc seems to be functioning well. I am receiving the (Freeview equivalent) Freesat channels on Astra 1N and 2F without the reception problems currently noticeable on our Freeview setup caused by high winds and rain,...

Freeview - scattered EPG. by Ian Field
SG6 area - Sandy Heath. Went to check for anything worth recording and there were a lot of holes in the EPG. Switching off and back on again produced a small improvement - the holes seemed to get worse the more I searched. Some channels had big gaps in the EPG, but the listings were there for several days time.
