Cable Ugrade Query by Ian
I'm looking at swapping the cheap cable on my daughter's sky dish. The signal strength was around 60%, and I've noticed that the cable is thinner than the cable I've used on my own system which is at 100%. I had some success with re-cutting the connections, but the centre core is prone to snapping off. At one point the signal strength on one input was 100%, so I took it off to check the...

Mythtv 0.25 released. by news.plus.net
Hi folks, Mythtv has now reached 0.25 as a stable release. There are a lot of changes in it this time so you really need to read up before you upgrade, particularly with regards to Video code support. If you are feeling brave you can compile your own Mythtv system or wait for the binary repos to catchup. Rob.

Analogue Through Rose Tints by Silk
Now that analogue TV is finally coming to an end, I'm surprised to see people commenting on what a great loss it is and how superior it is/was to digital. Let's look at the evidence: Anaglogue: 4:3 aspect ratio only; Very annoying and obvious PAL artifacts; Susceptble to noise and ghosting in all but perfect signal areas; inefficient use of bandwidth; etc.

No more analogue BBC2 by Max Demian
"Ar" wrote in message ... In the gradual roll out of fleaview, the largest TV region, London, has just switched off BBC2 analogue, and moved ITV1 into it's frequency...... so pressing 2 gets you ITV, and 3 gets you static snow. Why snow, when the vacated channel (UHF23) now carries the digital PSB1? I would have thought it...

Where is that fuse? by Doug Sewell
There is supposed to be an onboard fuse on the power board of the Humax F2FOXT but can I find it -- NO. Changed all the capacitors but still no power on. Can anyone let me know where the fuse is. Thanks Doug

Humax F2FOXT dead? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
A friend has a Humax F2FOXT. After a power cut last week he's finding that he can't apparently switch it on. Plugging in power means he gets "pass through" on the aerial but that's all. Is this a common problem or has it possibly been fried? I've suggested he tries the "pull aerial then power up" trick and also tries to reload the firmware from a PC but perhaps there is some other trick I...

Samsung TVs updated to death? by gordon
On Thursday pm, I switched on my UE40D7000 (from standby) and it reported an error updating itself (that would be over the internet), and then switched off (back to standby). And since then it stays on for only about 20 seconds every time. John Lewis service centre claimed they had had dozens of calls from Samsung owners (Smart Hub models I'm guessing?). Has anyone heard anything about this -...

More u yore memories by Brian Gaff
The biggest place for subscribers to the wired system was Wales, as tv signals did not go far in them hills. However it was also a good or bad place, depending on hour take on them, for thunderstorms. One of my jobs was to sort through the returns from these places and suggest scrap or repair etc for the pcbs. I was truly amazed at the damage you got on the input circuits of these cabled...

BBC-2 English Regions by J G Miller[_3_]
Has the last regional program been broadcast on a BBC-2 English region, and if so which was the last one? Or could there still be a regional program shown on BBC-2 North East before the digital transition in September 2012?

Grundig Lenaro by TonyB
Hi, As a newbie I hope I'm not asking something that has been discussed before. I have a 32" Grundig Lenaro which freezes since the digital switchover. I understand it's something to do with the new signal and not technically Grundig's fault, but does anyone know how to deal with it? I've had to retune and cut a load of channels off the list just to stop it freezing up which is obviously...

CP DSO The story so far! by Brian Gaff
Why is it that at present lots of the stations say, no information available and program guides have big holes in them. I suspect this is due to the duplicates above 800.
