Semi technical question by Brian Gaff
We have vertically and horizontally polarised tv transmitters, but why don't we have something in between, ie still 90 degrees apart but neither vertical or horizontal. I guess the transmitting aerials might be a bit difficult to design, but I was more interested in whether there would be any difference in coverage. When we used to have band 1 and band 3 tv, I often found that Horizontal...

DC-DC conversion by Bill Wright[_2_]
Anyone know of a device that will charge a 24V lead-acid battery from a nominal 24V DC supply? Input 20 to 28V. Output 27V adjustable to get the charge rate right. Charge rate would ideally be 8A, tapering down. Anyone? Bill

Video sender? by Brian Gaff
Just a note as the other day I was idly tuning around the tv bands on uhf on my scanner when I heard the distinct noise of analogue vission and a weak sound carrier. Would this most probably be some kind of video sender soneone locally still has? I could not resolve it except on the radio and I think the sound was fm and in the foreign.

another totally off topic post by Bill Wright[_2_]
I have Lasting Power of Attorney for my dad. The building society (bank, really) did that trick where the interest on his ISA dropped to 0.00000000000001%, so I went in to transfer the money to another account. No problem said the girl. The deed was done. A week later father got a letter. The account can't be changed because it's a passbook account. Just call in to the local branch and we'll...

Humax 9200T slowed up again by Dave Farrance
After the rescan that was prompted a week or two back, my Humax 9200T has become grindingly slow again. That's happened in the past and then been fixed by a firmware update that changed the way it worked to free up a few processor cycles. So I guess that a bunch more channels have pushed it over the edge again, but I'd be surprised if Humax bother trying to fix the antique this time. Anybody...

I said what? by Bill Wright[_2_]
Late night phone call with a friend, me very tired. He said, "Do you know what you just said?" "What do you mean?" "You just said '405' when you meant 'SD'!" "I never! Ohh, I did, didn't I? Good grief!" Bill

Weir-d power? by Brian Gaff
I understand that along the Thames there are plans to use the power of the water at weirs to run a kind of hydro electric power station or few. already the Nimbies are out moaning about the blot on the landscape and noise pollution. Have you ever stood near a Weir, you can't hear yourself think, so surely its got to be quieter than that. Brian --

Very sad event. One of those characters very well remembered from the best days of TV many years ago. Juke box jury was compulsive listening on a Saturday night in those 405 days:) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23938128 -- Tony Sayer

Someone posted a while ago about how to rescan the Humax 9300T one mux at a time so as not to lose the schedule but I seem to have lost it. Could anyone go through the process again? Ta -- John Dean

BBC eco******** by Bill Wright[_2_]
"Richard Bacon, from 2pm, will be powered by the pedal as exercise bikes are set up in the piazza for guests such as Olympic cyclist, Chris Boardman, members of the public, and Richard himself to Ďhop-oní. All will be trying to generate enough kinetic energy to power Richardís show for the full two hours." Will that include the transmitters? Bill

Why do they do it? by Brian Gaff
Make the powe supplies of modern equipment as a seperat plug in box, and usually also make it a radio jamming device of excellent efficiency? Is this a subtle Chinese plan to gain control of the world by making any weak signals impossible to here? We need answers.

Power surge/brownout - SG6 area? by Ian Field
The DAB radio had been reset to standby and I later discovered both PVRs had got tangled up and needed a rescan to sort them out. It was quite handy actually - the FVRT90 freezes during rescan, this restarted with the operating system startup screen and informed me; "no channels currently stored", from this condition it completes a rescan normally.

BT Vision re-booting + BT youview / BT Sport and costs? by [email protected]
Hi, We currently have an old BT vision box, and for the last two or 3 months if we try and use BBC Iplayer the box re-boots itself. i've spoken to various BT people (of the sort of people one of our more celebrated correspondents refuses to speak to) and they all tell me it's a known problem and BT are working to have it fixed ASAP. I wonder whether it is time to get one of their Youview...

Nothing about BBC iPlayer on box or in Instructions though, but I did a Search on Google for any updates that could be put in. Sure enough there was one so downloaded that into my PC and transferred to the digi-box via a USB stick. Now it has the...
