Why are we here? by Bill Wright[_2_]
This is supposed to be about digital TV. We have had hundreds of posts about politics in the last few days, yet when I offered up my thoughts about the polar response of tv aerials there were about four replies, mostly concerned only with the typos. Bill

PSB and COM acronyms mean? by [email protected]
Does PSB mean Public Service Broadcasting? I couldn't find a webpage to confirm this but wikipedia had it only in lower case. Does COM mean commercial? if so why is it all in upper case?

Digital Aerials again by Brian Gaff
I was listening to Smooth radio on and off this morning and it seems from the texts being read out, as far as freeview was concerned, this digital aerial stuff is still confusing people big time. The presenter happened to say that he was having some issues with reception, since a recent retune and was told he needed a digital aerial. He said why now as I've been getting all the digital...

PVRs: naive question, but this is the right group by Another John
I hesitate to ask this of you guys, since I may get answers that I don't comprehend, but ... I'm looking to replace our PVR, which is a Wharfedale 160TRHDMI, bought about 5 years ago. The reason for replacement is that (thanks to another discussion I raised on this group some months ago) I suspect it of being the weak link in our digital chain, the TV being a pretty new Sony with its own...

"Dirty" LCD screens? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Watching the Masters last night I noticed what seemed to be some strange patterns on screen. Hooking up a PC and putting solid colours on screen revealed that the problem is the screen in an odd way - anyone else experienced this? Basically it seems that the backlight/LCD panel is effectively a box with the light (a tube I'm guessing) lighting a white back panel forming the back of the box...

why... by R. Mark Clayton
"Bill Wright" wrote in message ... Why does my phone always have a burst of transmission when I connect it to the charger? Why should it do that? You don't say which model, however many phones assume they are in a car when plugged in and so change the transmission parameters. GSM and 3G phones often converse with their base...

Gain spectrum measurements by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've just been experimenting with a quicker and easier way to do 'gain' vs frequency measurements using a noise source and the FUNCube. First results are at http://jcgl.orpheusweb.co.uk/temp/AE5100.png for anyone interested. I'll write this up in detail when I've finished experimenting. But basically I'm doing two things. A) Make a noise source from a chain of 3 20dB wideband amps as the...

Digital byte famine by Brian Gaff
I just wonder if several tv channels on the same multiplex transmitted a picture of an old analogue tv displaying noise, would there be pixelisation pretty fast. I imagine the current system depends on the actual changes between frames as being fairly minimal most of the time in order to stay working in a viewable way.

CRT adjustments. by [email protected]
Hello all, Maybe a bit OT, but it's still DTV... I have an 'old' Toshiba CRT widescreen which seems not to show the entire broadcast picture (overscan?) Those hideous channel logos are either right on the edge of the screen, or sliding off all together. On LCD screens, they are well within the screen boundaries. So, is it possible to adjust the screen on the CRT to show the full picture? On...
