aerial amp/splitter that will send DC power up the RF cable like a Sky box? by postmaster @ stejonda
We've switched from Sky to Humax Freesat boxes recently. I used RF1 to feed Freeview to the main TV & RF2 to the other 3 TVs in the house. This also provided DC power to an amplifier/splitter upstairs. The Humax has only one RF out and doesn't provide DC. Thus I currently have the old Sky+ box providing that function which is a waste of electricity as well as space and is an unwelcome...

Temporary dropouts on ITV1 from Rowridge by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Anyone else been noticing these over the last week? TV just goes black with a "No signal" message. Doesn't seem to affect BBC or Ch4, as switching to these shows a normal picture. On switching back ITV1 is ok. This has happened with two TVs (different makes, so it's not the TV. -- Jeff

Group B aerial query by Scott[_2_]
Following upon my previous posting, according to Brian Butterworth's site http://www.ukfree.tv/fullstory.php?storyid=1107052119 the extra frequences here will be 32 and 35. I understand Group B aerials cover channels 35 to 53. In the considered opinion of the experts, am I likely to require a new aerial or is 32 close enough to 35 to provide an adequate albeit attenuated signal?

News in this country by Brian Gaff
We are sliding down the dangerous slide to how America gets news I fancy. Lots of things happening around the world but our home news seems fixated on the birth of a child only. Nothing much else and its ridiculous. Just listen to other countries radio stations. Are they just taking the easy way out here, or what? Brian --

Amersham is our town. Yesterday morning, whiles having a cup of tea the two separate fluorescent lights both suddenly made a very loud hum. The sort of hum that they make when starting. this lasted for about 2 mins then faded away. The lights did not flicker and the hum was 'nasty', anyway nothing more happened, and the lights are working fine. Today I discover 2 wall psu's for different...

How to remove your computer FBI Virus in minutes? by [email protected]
FBI virus is a sneaky malware. Ransom-ware is malicious software that restricts access to a computer until a ransom is paid. It displays a fake warning message and asks you pay a fee to unblock the computer. It will frequently disguise itself as the police or FBI.

Freeview, what is going on with stations? by Brian Gaff
I see going through the list now we have a Sky sports, well two but saying no longer broadcasting and a waste of bandwidth bt sport running promos with two other bt sport channels. Does one assume that eventually eveyone is supposed to have a so called smart tv, and most of the stations will in fact come via the internet? Seems a very odd situation to waste bandwidth with a promo of...

Humax Freetime PVR doesn't time-shift programmes??? by postmaster @ stejonda
SWMBO, who has main use of the Humax HDR-1010S, has complained to me that unlike the Sky+HD box the Humax does not auto-adjust if a programme's broadcast time alters. Is that ability a feature from Sky or, heaven-forfend, is she mistaken? -- Simon 12) The Second Rule of Expectations

McCarthy & Stone CCTV by Mark Carver
Mother in law is moving into a new McCarthy & Stone retirement flat next month. I went to have a look at it today. Very nice. Apparently, there's a system that when someone rings the bell for her at the main entrance, their face automagically appears on her TV screen. I wonder how ?

The world has gone mad. by Brian Gaff
Why are the Co-Op using a Christmas song on their adverts for a Summer sale? The most Wonderful time of the year complete with singers going ding dong and Andy Williams singing away. Completely ruined Christmas. I'd complain, but I'm not sure being so hatstand as to do this on an ad is grounds for it. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

Wierd aspect ratio on Drama channel by Dave W
Today I enjoyed Jonathan Creek, but I didn't realise it was made in the days of 4:3 aspect ratio (I think it said 1997 on the credits). That's fine - I was able to configure my TV for 4:3, but Drama had made it worse by putting black regions top and bottom, looking ultra stretched on 16:9, and showing black borders all round when I had configured the TV. Unfortunately the TV doesn't have a zoom...
