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.

Flat panel satellite dish by rbel[_2_]
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience the effectiveness of this 'dish' http://www.amazon.co.uk/Satellite-Dish-H30D2-Flat-Antenna/dp/B00319C8W0/ref=zg_bs_528563031_5 Purely from a looks viewpoint it may help us get around our no dishes or external aerials problem. -- rbel

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

Never messed with an X box before, ever! by Bill Wright[_2_]
"Grandad, my game won't play when I use PAL 50 but when I use PAL 60 it's in black and white." "Err what?" "GRANDAD! Wake up!" "I came here to babysit. I didn't expect a discussion on television standards. You're a ten year old girl. You should be concerning yourself with embroidery and such things." "Grandad, are you gonna fix it or WHAT?" I snook off to her room for a kip, leaving Hil to...

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...

RF2 red eye on a Freesat+ PVR ? by postmaster @ stejonda
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...

4G in London by [email protected]
Base stations were switched on today by Hutchison (791-796MHz) and EE (796-801MHz). Exact locations not known. I've not seen any results from the first week's interference tests. Has anyone?

New BBC Bias? by The Other John
This week I've noticed five presenters and/or newsreaders wearing purple ties which just happens to be UKIP's colour - could this be the reason for UKIP's success in the elections? :) TOJ.

Freesat HD STB? by David.WE.Roberts
I am back to using the Bush HD STB but even after a prolonged rest it is not of the best. Last night it had a couple of rows of red dashes across the screen which stayed overnight with the box in standby. It also stopped obeying most of the remote control keys. Powered down and up this morning and this cleared it, but this does not bode well for long term reliability.

more old memories resulting from domestic reorganisation by Bill Wright[_2_]
If you put a CRT set near a big speaker the colours go funny. I'd quite forgotten. If you feed the output from an HD box that you normally feed into a modern telly into an old CRT set, isn't it horrible? The imperfect geometry that we used to take for granted hits you in the eye. However the sound from that old portable is far better than from its modern equivalent. Bill

Freeview box? by Sla#s[_2_]
I can't seem to find a Freeview box that has, recording, DVD, Wi-Fi, will play all the catch up stations and will play *avi/*mkv/*mp4 files. Several say iPlayer but neglect the others. And none of them seem to play *mp4 files. Any thoughts? The best I can come up with is a Media PC. Thing is I had a 'Tranquil'* and it was rubbish!

teletext on DTT by Bill Wright[_2_]

BBC bias - again! by Woody[_5_]
A simple one this morning on the BBC Breakfast sports report just after 06:30. They made great show of the fact that a (giant!) Welsh rugby player would be captain and also reported that the 37-man squad comprises 15 Welsh, 9 Irish, and 3 Scots, No mention of ENGLISH players, which at 10 is the second largest contingent!!! If Scotland do gain independence (heaven forbid) I think this BBC...

Old memories revisited whilst reorganising my consumer electronicsready for a new telly by Bill Wright[_2_]
1. When you autotune an old Panasonic to the analogue CCTV channels it leaves 1, 2, and 3 blank, because it can't find BBC1, BBC2, and ITV. 2. My label machine does a lot of things I don't understand. 3. My old Quintro scart switcher does a lot of things I don't understand. 4. SCARTS are really crap for coming loose. 5. Squirting compressed air into a very early CD player can be effective: it...
