Flexible oval conduit? any such thing and suitable straight couplers? by Stephen H
I'm doing first fix in a house that has plasterboards on thermalite blocks. I would like to use oval conduit between the TV/Satellite/Radio/Telephone/Network wall points up to the loft. This conduit would go in between the plasterboard and thermalite blocks. I will cut out access holes in the plasterboard to clear battens/noggins/dot'n'Dab patches etc, I have access to upstairs floorboards...

BBC2 In orbit - how satellites rule our world by [email protected]
I started to watch this programme but had to give up after ten minutes or so, as the presenter, with her thoroughly irritating habit of pausing, at the most inopportune moments, just mana ged to **** me off.

Crystal Palace digits by phil
None of the main muxes seem to be on this morning from CP, though some, like Pick TV and ITV3, are there. Analogue is OK. It's not the high pressure as there is 0% signal strength shown. I presume overnight work has overrun a bit. Phil

UFO! by Graham.[_2_]
Well I can't identify it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/g3zvt/6858091680/in/photostream/lightbox/ Any ideas? I'm located in Prestwich, 3 miles North of Manchester, and the object is low in the SE so perhaps it's over Droylsden or Audenshaw. It was caring red strobe lights as well as the glow so these are CAA law abiding L.G.M.

Diseqc switches by Andy Burns[_7_]
My previous satellite setup had a Smart Oxid quad LNB on 28.2E two of the LNB outputs fed a dual tuner DVB-S2 tuner in PC other two LNB outputs headed off to down to lounge via Blake starBox Recently I've added a Smart Oxid single LNB on 19.2E Initially I connected the new LNB's output direct to one of the tuner card inputs, I could scan for and receive all the expected channels from 19.2E

Circumventing Patientline by Bill Wright[_2_]
At the risk of annoying JG I was wondering if anyone here has experience of any very small TV sets with built-in terrestrial digital. The ideal machine would also have some means of accepting and playing recorded programmes, possibly from a memory stick. It would need a headphone socket that would mute the speaker. I've had a bit of a look round but haven't seen anything very sparkling. Bill

Hotbird/Astra 19.2E Monobloc has lost Astra signal by Arthur Pye
The above happened a few weeks ago and I think resulted after a couple nights of low temperature, not from strong winds. This was professionally installed about 2 years ago. Hotbird signal is unaffected, which is what leads me to believe that the dish and LNB are still as installed, but I'm getting nothing from 19.2E. The dish is fairly easily accessible above a flat extension roof....

Crystal Palace by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Anyone know if there is a problem with the CP digital TV signal? I have just retuned my Panasonic TV and Humax 9200T. My "local" transmitter is Midhurst, but I have always received CP as well - albeit with the infrequent bit of pixellation. But having just retuned, neither can get CP digital TV (the Panny can still receive the CP analogue signal, even on its reduced power). The signal...

Dumbing down the digital question by Adrian C
Ye might find this useful, I've practiced it enough this week. I call it the minimal interaction of DSO pain method. Them: "I got a letter though the door, about digital TV. I'm dumb and read the daily mail. Do I need to go digital?" Me: "Do you have more than 5 channels on your TV?"

EPG half hour out by Scott[_2_]
The electronic programme guide is half an hour ahead of true time. I first noticed this yesterday and saw it again today. I assume this cannot be a problem with my equipment, so is it a local issue or a wider problem?

Good value HD set-top box by Victor Delta[_2_]
With the final stage of Rowridge DSO happening tomorrow, I am keen to be able to view the new HD channels on our HD-ready TV. In due course, I will replace our non-HD PVR but it still has plenty of life left in it at the moment. So I am looking for a good, cheapish, HD set-top box in the meantime. Can anyone recommend the best one please? Thanks,

Aerial upgrade completed by Scott[_2_]
I had my Group E aerial replaced with a Group B, which is now split to serve two television sets. I got the aerial for the kitchen set removed, which was pointing towards a relay transmitter. Now I have the full range of services in the kitchen. I assume I am much less likely to suffer 4G interference as the Group B aerial is supposed to drop off at channel 53, well below the 4G frequencies....
