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.

Ch4HD Weirdness. by Ian
Went to watch a recording tonight, and found that there was no audio on three CH4HD recordings. I checked it live, and no audio. To get the audio to work, I had to turn on Audio Description. This is Freesat on a Humax DTR1000. A net search found that people were experiencing this in late 2011 on

Internet TV feeds by Woody[_5_]
Does anyone know if there is a box out there that will do 4OD, Demand 5 etc in addition to iPlayer that is free to use after purchase? I am looking at the Roku LT (on offer in Expensive World at 39.95) but it will only provide iPlayer from the UK market with no light at the end of the tunnel. Is there any other box that is not too expensive that will meet my needs? I do have a built but...

Freeview 24 - SG6 area. by Ian Field
Anyone know what's going on? For the past few days CH24 has been pretty much blue screen with "no signal" caption on the Digifusion, but perfectly OK on the Humax. The Digifusion gets all the other channels OK. Today; the Digifusion is getting CH24, but its very jerky/pixellated - the Humax is still fine on every channel.

Gold problem by Hugh Newbury
All I wanted to do was to subscribe to Gold and watch all those old programmes again. So I went on line to find the right place and kept being sent to remote and obscure sites that seemed to involve lots of progs and equipment that had nothing to do with getting Gold on Freeview. Could someone please point me in the right direction? I have a tv with Freeview and a HD recorder, so I don't...

O/T: DIY audio amps (ping Jim Lesurf) by [email protected]
Anyone in here make their own audio amps? I have just made one using a TDA7370B salvaged from a car stereo, and whilst it sounds fantastic with vocals and higher frequencies, it doesn't have much in the way of bottom end, and the sound changes the longer it is left on - it starts to sound hollow and weak. The circuit I used was the one found in the ST datasheet - is there any other design which...

At Last !!! by Mark Carver
Would have been really handy several years ago, but at last Ofcom have produced an Excel list for DTT transmitters similar to the excellent one they inherited in 2003 from The Radio Authority listing radio transmitters. See attached:- Ofcom has today published updated frequency and site data for digital terrestrial television (DTT) transmitters in the UK. The data reflects the situation as...

4G filters by Scott[_2_]
I received my postcard from www.at800.tv yesterday. Potentially, I could receive Freeview from a local relay that I believe includes channel 59 (an this may be the reason I received the postcard). However, I took the precaution of installing a Group B aerial pointed at the main transmitter (highest channel 47) with no amplifier, so I assume I am probably going to be okay. However, I looked at...
