AD update. by Brian Gaff
Firstly, no # yet from 5, but tonight, erm last night they showed both episodes again with AD on both, but on 5USA. What are they doing? Really, well they just sent me an email asking me exactly the info I gave them in the original email about Alkatraz. They say to pass on to engineers. I personally don't think its an engineering problem its a human problem, ie a cock up or as we say, finger...

Sky HD query by Woody[_5_]
I don't have HD but I'm about to set it up for someone. Am I right in thinking that a Sky HD box can only output HD in 720p or 1080i? If so then I presume 1080p is for DVD/BR players only? In which case if the TV is only used for TV viewing by satellite there is no need to buy a 1080p TV - correct? Is it the same for Freeview HD?

Sky dish with freview tv - unbelievable?? by Ghostrecon
I understood that you need a freesat STB to get tv from the 3rd LNB (first 2 used for sky plus)of a sky dish? has something changed? - My ex had someone run a coax from the 3rd lnb to give my daughter tv in her bedroom - the old freesat box they had didnt work so the guy used a fscrew-aerial adaptor and plugged into the aerial socket of a Logik freeview tv and got a picture straight away - no...

80 kbps mono by Stephen
Thanks for the information. I am still totally bemused by all this. I can remember when BBC television was on Band I and ITA was on Band III. As far as I can remember, Band I contained channels 1 to 5 and Band III contained channels 6 to 13. AIUI each TV channel is divided into four DAB multiplexes. On this basis, Band III has capacity for a total of 32 multiplexes. ...

Audio description again by Brian Gaff
Last night the much plugged Alcatraz part 1 was screened on Really. It was supposed to have audio description. the little pips told me that it was in the program guide, but apparently Really forgot to switch it on as there were no audio described scenes at all. If broadcasters cannot get this right they will be just ignored by us. Bad information is worse than no information at all, in my...

More Sky queries by Woody[_5_]
Further to my question (now answered) about Sky HD and FTA channels, an ongoing issue. My F-in-L uses Freesat-from-Sky as he lives in an area of Sheffield where a good terrestrial signal only carries Freeview Lite. He is complaining that he is loosing channels - for example some of the news channels such as Euronews, Al-J, RT, and CNN but BBC News and Sky News are OK.

Humax Foxsat HDR: Can watch a recording whilst recording twochannels? by Maurice[_3_]
If recording two channels at the same time (twin feed from dish) is it possible to also - at the same time - watch an existing recording? Have recently found some recordings are missing, and we've seen a brief warning message flash up on 2 separate evenings: "Recording (less than 30 secs) may not be stored." System Diagnostic says both feeds are detected.

Query on freesat by Woody[_5_]
Can anyone tell me, will a Sky HD box show the FTA and FTV HD channels on a Freesat-from-Sky card (or its HD equivalent) without having to pay a Sky subscription? My elderly F-in-L lives in an area of Sheffield where he can only get Freeview Lite, so I fixed him up with a s/h Sky box and F-f-S card. He is very happy with it but tends to watch some of the less glorious channels - Thomas Cook...

Saint John Vianney 8-19-71 by [email protected]
St. John Vianney says, "Man forgets the purpose of life. It is the sanctification of the Soul; the Goal, Sainthood. Children are not being taught this type of love. It is being skimmed over, omitted, and cast aside with human nature involvement. Also, satan is using mankind in many ways. He is diverting him from truth, God's Way." REVELATION DELIVERED THROUGH FRANCES M. KLUG ON AUGUST...

Have the BBC screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? by Ian Jackson[_2_]
Is it just me, or have the BBC well and truly screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? Apparently, from 26 September, you cannot download anything without first installing their iPlayer Downloads program. You seem to have no option than to download a massive mp4 file (one hour being around 700MB, which takes for ever and a day on a 1.5Mb/s feed). To add insult to injury, some reason the mp4...
