This Week in SD by Bill Wright[_2_]
Tonight's 'This Week' was in SD on BBC1 HD. It isn't usually, is it? I'm sure I would have noticed. It looked really odd, with little 'ringing' effects. It looked terrible straight after QT, which was in glorious HD. Bill

LV by Brian Gaff
Not heard of them for years. What is lv now then.# I also have a chuckle when I hear of ball technology in vaccuum cleners, as I have a very fertile mind about such things. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active "Davey" wrote in message

Power glitches can be a good thing. by Ian Field
A couple of days ago there was some sort of power disturbance that left a DAB radio needing to be unplugged & plugged back in again to restart it, a couple of electronic battery chargers had restarted their charge cycle, my Humax PVR was pretty confused & needed a full rescan for channels - the Digifusion was pretty much wiped. After several attempts to retune, which is not easy because it...

Bus-ted? by Brian Gaff
The dangers of mounting dishes too low down. I overheard a conversation between a local person and his mate, obviously from some other part of the suburbs. It appears that he has his dish on the front of his house, and all has been well until they introduced double decker busses on the route which stops outside his house. These houses have more of a glorified window box at the front...

Losing Channels by stuart
Unlurk A brilliant read here on Bill's channel but now I'd like some help! I have an old Fortec Star sat Rx which I use on Hotbird to watch the RAI channels. A while ago I lost some channels and assumed it was to do with snow on the dish or perhaps snow on a nearby tree but now I've rescanned and lost all the channels I watch! I noticed yesterday that the scan seems to stop suddenly half way...

http://at800.tv by Graham.[_2_]
"Nemo" casually mentioned http://at800.tv in the "Filters according to Frequencycast" thread. I thought it could do with a thread of it's own. First impression, they seem to have nicked their slogan from an NHS cancer awareness campaign. (There is probably a joke about mastectomy somewhere). The domain name and logo is going to be meaningless to the public. So, are we going to provide a rival...

The evil of the unions: remember those absurd mimes on TOTP? by Bill Wright[_2_]
From the biography of Johnny Pearson In 1966 the all-powerful Musicians’ Union had banned pop stars from miming to their records. This meant that artists either had to pre-record their numbers especially or perform live with the Top Of The Pops Orchestra, an assembly of jobbing musicians more accustomed to easy-listening arrangements for crooners like Matt Monro and Des O’Connor. As...

Advice needed by Davey
TV: Toshiba LCD, 2 years old. Location: Within about 30 miles of Tacolneston. Problem: Sometimes, usually in the afternoon rather than the evening, Ch. 10, ITV3 will lose video. It will just show a load of horizontal coloured bars. Audio is unaffected. The built-in signal monitor shows "100%/Good", if that means anything. Same as all the other channels. A re-scan may fix it, for a few minutes. An...

Top Gear - obvious canned laughter by Ian Jackson[_2_]
I've just seen the very end of tonight's Top Gear (prior to watching Dad's Army). Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were standing in front of a car, discussing its shortcomings etc. Behind them all were standing a fair-sized 'audience' of onlookers. It was very obvious that hardly any of the audience were even smiling - let alone laughing. Despite this, there was lots of loud...

TOT explain this by Bill Wright[_2_]
Two desk computers, side by side, both on same internet connection. Go to Google on both. Type Tesco on both. Home page appears on both. In search thingy type 'crisp and dry' on both. LH machine finds the 1 litre bottle only. RH machine finds the 1L and 2L bottle. Repeat the experiment several times. Same result every time. Do everything possible to get the LH machine to find the 2L bottle....

BBC Two HD by Scott[_2_]
I see the BBC Two high definition channel is to be launched on 26 March: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2013/bbc-two-hd.html As I understand it, this is to be a single version for the whole UK without opt-outs for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. What is the logic behind this? If BBC One Scotland is shown in HD (in Scotland) and STV is shown in HD in Scotland, why not BBC Two...

I normally like Sony products but... by Bill Wright[_2_]
I have a Sony portable DAB/FM/CD machine in the kitchen. I've never bothered with the FM reception because I just use DAB and CD. But I like to listen to Howard Leader on Sundays (BBC Lincs) so I thought I'd connect the radio to an aerial. On the roof is a 6-ele FM aerial pointing at Belmont. It drags in a BBC Lincs signal that's 40dB below the Holme Moss signals getting into the aerial via...
