Ch 5 plus 1 glitch last night by Brian Gaff
I am not sure if this was also in the original, but at the time normally occupied for an ad break the whole program jumped back about three minutes and went over it again. The adverts never appeared at all. Has anyone seen this before, one supposes that the file triggering of content in some automated system did not get updated correctly somewhere. I bet that cost somebody some money. ...

Humax HDR - 2000T by Alaric
I bought a refurbished Humax HDR 2000t from Amazon in October last year and it has worked perfectly till about 2pm today. However, when I tried to use it at about 6pm I got a picture but could not get it to work otherwise. I cannot change channels nor can I initiate any other functions. I switched it off at the mains plug, waited a bit and switched it back on but still nothing. I changed the...

I s there anyone on here who is also blind? by Brian Gaff
I was wondering what the quality of the spoken features were on the Panasonic and Samsung ranges. IE do the program guides get read properly, are all the menus usable with speech of options etc, and any smart features or internal apps, do they function with speech or are they crippled due to them being third party things and programs? I'm certainly not going to pay for a telly when a box...

BBC1 Scheduling - Contempt for Viewers? by Sam
For our sins we record and watch Father Brown on BBC1. Series 4 has just finished and a new series starts next week. This will be series 5? No way - the schedule shows that they start off with the first two episodes of Series 3 and them jump to episode 6. What logic and thought for the viewer! Sam

Here's a good idea by Phil L
Bill Wright wrote: Let the NHS send the invoices for all the foreigners who come over here for free treatment to the Overseas Aid Department. It would be that department's job to chase the payment. If they didn't get it it would reduce the money we shovel overseas. The invoice would be inflated to well above the actual NHS cost. This idea would relieve the NHS staff of the job of debt...

Unforgotten by Pinnerite
Yesterday evening, my wife and I had settled down to watch the final episode of this serial drama. Unfortunately, Mrs Pinnerite had 'pressed the wrong button' with the result that for the first time we were listening to an audio accompaniment. It was irritating at first. During the intervals we were feverishly trying to to reverse the facility but didn't manage to so for quite some...

Finding who has rights to something by Brian Gaff
Back in the Day there was a talking set top pvr sold under the TVonics brand name. After some messing about it seems, at least from anecdotal info, that RNIB have intellectual copyright on much of the original design. However nobody at RNIB seems to actually know. Typical corporate amnesia I'd say. Does anyone know anything about this as I seem to recall some were sold just as pvrs before...

Heroes on CBeebies by Scott[_2_]
I have just seen Cadbury's Heroes being distributed on CBeebies. Does this not breach both product placement rules and ban on promoting junk food pre-watershed? .

Pigeon poo protection by Brian-Gaff
I was looking well feeling, an old aerial a person had taken of their roof a while ago, and the comment was it would still be OK today if not for the bloody pigeons their **** rotted away the metal. I have to say that certainly under the encrusted ' 'Guano' was a heck of a rusted away self tapping screw in a and the unit had a couple of elements missing so one can deduce that the screws...

Radio 2 by Brian Gaff
OK not tv, but they do have it on freeview. Note that they have gotten rid of After Midnight real live programming and seem to be using a kind of Jukebox software to present what they call radio 2 playlists, withe plugs and comments obviously recorded and slipped into the right places by software. OK they run old versions of popular programs from the previous week as well, but is this...

Firefox OS by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Just picked this up in another NG: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/02/mozilla-ends-firefox-os-connected-device-ambitions-lays-off-50/ Why is this relevant to this NG? Because Panasonic used Firefox OS in some of their TVs. I have one and wonder who will be doing updates - if any? -- Jeff

Subtitle fun by Davey
I know that the subtitles are often wrong, and even funny, but I did like the BBC lunchtime news informing us that there had been a Turkish parrot in the US for the last 18 months. I even played it back to check, and yes, that's what it said. Glorious. -- Davey.

Bloomin digital. by Brian Gaff
According to a friend of mine he is cursing dab and freeview radio as neither of them is in sync with his fm radio, which I told him did not surprise me as two computers on the same internet feed can seemingly be over half a minute out of register. It rather brought up the idea of when the year started into perspective. It was all over the place, so it seems to me that one of the major...

Reliable PVR? by T i m
Hi all, Not sure this is the right place to ask but I've been tasked with helping some technophobe inlaws into the PVR world. Now, I understand Humax gear is known to be fairly user friendly but I'm not sure they are as reliable as I want to risk as a recommendation (based on the one the Mrs had before I got her a Topfield TF5800 like mine).
