'Protected area' in centre of screen? by Scott[_2_]
I thought there was a rule that all important details, such as captions, maps etc, should be confined to the centre part of the screen so viewers with 4:3 televisions can still follow the programme. I see that recently Channel 4 News seems to be ignoring this and so too does BBC Breakfast but to a lesser degree. This got me wondering: (1) whether such a rule exists and (2) whether it is 4:3 or...

Test card generator by Stephen Wolstenholme[_3_]
When 625-line first arrived I was working in a TV factory that had its own test card equipment. I had to calibrate the test card generators every week. The generators were based on a some "back to front" CRTs with a test cards built in. I can't remember what those tubes were called. Any ideas? Steve -- EasyNN-plus.

Dish on chimney by Steve Niven
Does this image illustrate an adequate way to mount a dish on the side of a chimney? With a single large lashed bracket? Or would the pole need to be stiffened with two lashing kits? http://i.imgur.com/SFJtxZH.jpg

New Humax 9200 fault? by Dickie mint[_2_]
Haven't used this for a while, as we also have a Foxsat HDR. Last night (Sunday) Foxsat reported a recording clash at 2100 as BBC3 Russell Howard started - watching BBC1HD and was recording Endeavour on itv HD. So cancelled itvHD on Foxsat HDR and switched on 9200, changed from BBC1 to itv1 and pressed record button. Came down this morning to find it said REC 55mins. Couldn't think what...

We're thinking of dumping Sky and going for Freesat+ but use the powered Rf2 out on the Sky box to control the box from other rooms. Is there a PVR that can do this? -- Simon 12) The Second Rule of Expectations An EXPECTATION is a Premeditated resentment.

Why does programme guide sometimes have holes in it? by Brian Gaff
By which I mean, when running up the channels there are often a lot which say, no information available. often one can jump start it by unplugging the box and then waiting for it to get the data again after repowering. It never used to happen until a few months back. Its a Goodmans Smart talk. Is it death by degrees already? The only way it can now keep AD through most programs is by turning...

BBC1 this morning by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was watching BBC1 Emley Moor. At about 1.03 there was a temporal discontinuity of perhaps 0.3secs and 'II' (or perhaps '11') appeared top right as an OSG. A minute or so later there was another temporal discontinuity and the OSG disappeared. In between the two events the picture and sound were normal. It was partly from the US and partly from the studio. It seemed as if the output had been...
