NUJ Look North peculiarity by Bill Wright[_2_]
Dunno if anyone can cast light on this. My PVR is set to series link Look North. The aerial is on Emley Moor. On the day of the strike it didn't record. It's never failed before. Paul came round today and said, "Hey, we got that Peter Levy on Look North last night." His aerial is on Emley Moor as well. "Oh. We didn't get it all; at least it wasn't recorded on t'gadget." "Funny innit? Fancy a...

Freeview links to the Internet by naffer
With my new Smart TV I have been exploring some of the more weird channels. Example: At #235 on Freeview there is a channel that links via my router to a "religious" channel. I have reasons to have this site looked at by Ofcom. Is this way of broadcasting is a TV prog. or internet link ? (Please:

BBC2 HD by Roger Mills[_2_]
I gather that, as from tomorrow, the BBC HD channel will become BBC2 HD and will shadow BBC2 SD - and will presumably no longer carry selected BBC3 and BBC4 programmes. Will I need to re-tune the HD mux on my Humax HDR-FOX-T2? Will series recordings which I have set up for BBC HD (mainly BBC2) still work? -- Cheers, Roger ____________

CSI last night by Brian Gaff
Well, they obviously thought the plot line of a possible dog mauling to death was still showable despite the news yesterday then? Not that it was of course guilty in the end. I do feel that this episode was a little bit of a filler. Most of the new series have been quite interesting but this one.. well, lets just say I was not impressed.

Quality Soldering Iron by Geoff Pearson
For a long time I used a Henley Solon soldering iron (25W I think) but that broke after 20 years. What do people reckon is a quality replacement capable of fine soldering on PCBs and so on? Geoff

Ch 4 attempting to cover Yahoo hack by Brian Gaff
With so much dumbing down it was pretty pointless bothering. The first time this started to occur was before Christmas, probably a dry run. the latest one is much bigger but in the piece on their news last night they completely failed to point out that the affected people were not just Yahoo customers, as it was the intention to use the address books and linked names of the hacked online ...

CCTV for the elderly. by [email protected]
Grandparents had a con-man sniffing around today, but they aren't daft and so he was shoed away, and the police were called. But as they are getting more vulnerable, maybe it is time for some CCTV around the house. Has anyone any experience with a suitable system for a couple who are technically disinterested, and eyesight is not what it was? There is no internet access, so no fancy remote...

PAT testing for stage use by Bill Wright[_2_]
I have some stage props that are made of wood and are about 3ft wide, 3ft high, and 18inches from front to back. They contain 12V rechargeable batteries and two enclosed halogen lights (12W). Other than that they are empty boxes. There is no mains connection. Do these items need PAT testing? Does anyone have experience of dealing with fire officers about such matters? Bill

Nickel Zinc rechargeable batteries report. by [email protected]
(I posted this in uk.d-i-y but thought it might be of some use to people in here) Hello all, I have a compact digital camera - Fujifilm Finepix E550 which runs on two AA sized batteries. I gave up using single-use cells with it due to the cost, and have been using NiMH cells. Whilst these are useful in many applications,I find that they are pretty poor for the camera as they only return around...

BBC News - Reduction in size of rolling news headlines by Ian Jackson[_2_]
My wife is complaining about the reduction of the size of the font on the BBC News rolling news headlines. They are now about a quarter of what they were, and are even smaller than the normal subtitles (which she relies on). I note that Sky News, Al Jazeera and Russia Today also have the same small font. Were they always like this, or is it something they've all done in unison? -- Ian

Humax TV by Dave Plowman (News)
Have a Humax LU23-TD2 LCD TV in the kitchen - bought because it fitted a space, hence the unusual for the time size of 24". About 5 years old. The digital tuner has failed, but everything else seems ok. Tried an auto tune, and it went through the analogue tuning then stopped when it changed to digital. Any clues? Are spares and schematics available or is it the usual throw away type fault? --
