Amy comments, Bill - Romanian bus driver story by NY
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1596067/british-bus-driver-refused-job-and-told-firm-are-hiring-romanians-only/ Stand back and light blue touch paper. I think Bill may self-combust :-) I thought discrimination acts made it illegal to advertise for (or make apparent to applicants during the recruitment process) that you want someone from a specific ethnic background or of a specific gender. If...

Copied from UK.Legal by Phi
The BBC is to spy on internet users in their homes by deploying a new generation of Wi-Fi detection vans to identify those illicitly watching its programmes online. The Telegraph can disclose that from next month, the BBC vans will fan out across the country capturing information from private Wi-Fi networks in homes to "sniff out" those who have not paid the licence fee. The corporation has...

Anouther thought oh curing auto switching on my Humax recorder set up. by Mick IOW
Hi all, I am sorry if I have asked this before, only I am still confused about this? I have a SAMSUNG UE49KU6670 Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR 49" TV, with two Humax recorder boxes connected. When the 2nd recorder a HDR-FOX T2 is set for a scheduled recording it, switches the TV, to it. When we used Scart leads we could remove the pin 8 and this would stop

Funai combo by Bill Ward[_2_]
I'm looking for a Funai Combo VCR/DVD before they depart this world. Funai seem not to have a place in the UK market now. http://funai.eu/hdd-dvd/wd6d-m100,id-30 Would the model from Germany work straight out of the box in the UK with a continental adapter? http://tinyurl.com/zn7yvyq I have a Toshiba RD-XV48DTKB that chews up tapes and the recorded picture on its HD is very poor.

is it just me? by Brian Gaff
Have the bbc gone completely overboard on Olympic coverage? You seem to get it no matter what station you watch or listen to. Also despite the bbc trying to put a positive spin on all of it, I get the impression that a lot of the people over there are disgruntled and bad tempered as if they had just dropped several tenners down a drain hole. I thought it was all supposed to be happiness...

classical music TV channel by Bill Wright[_3_]
Why isn't there a BBC TV channel devoted to classical music? After all, those us who have the maturity of taste and intelligence to appreciate classical music are in general the ones who are the most productive, and thus generate the most wealth, so in effect we are giving the poor people the money to buy their TV licences by the trickle down process. As it is we are poorly served by the...

New Freeview channels? by Max Demian
My Humax HDR-Fox T2 is badgering me to retune, "In order to continue to receive all the channels available in your area." Is there anything new of significance? I don't see anything at http://www.terrestrialtv.co.uk/ and I don't want to retune unnecessarily as I would have to reenter all my reservations (among other things). -- Max Demian

OT the blonde and the two blacks by Bill Wright[_3_]
I had to laugh. BBC TV news last night, main item was the increase in anti-terrorist police activity. So they showed the police stopping a blonde white woman to find out if she was a terrorist and then they interviewed three members of the public to ask what they thought about the terrorists. The first two were not white. So the BBC want us to think that anyone could be a terrorist and the...

telephone masts by Brian Gaff
There seems to be a sudden surge in these 'monopole mastes 12 m high with associated equipment cabinets' being put up around this part of London. I'd have thought there were quite enough of these by now and did wonder how all of this, presumably 4g stuff might affect the tuners in many sets which have not had problems in the past. One assumes that the coverage is not good enough to play...

re-tuning the Humax by Bill Wright[_3_]
The Humax DTT box in the kitchen is quite new. It has software bugs. It took me a long time to find out what to do about one of them. This was after having downloaded new software on a dongle, which fixed most things. The one it didn't fix was that if the machine was recording it wouldn't respond to the remote, or the on/off button on the top panel. It couldn't be brought out of standby in...

Hi all, on my recently purchased TV to a Samsung UE49KU6670 Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR 49inch TV. I have two Humax HDR-FOX T2 recorders connected by HDMI leads and a Samsung Blue Ray DVD player.

Samsung UE49KU6670 Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR TV, and External Speakers. by Mick IOW
Hi all, I have just upgraded my TV to a Samsung UE49KU6670 Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR 49inch one. When external speakers are connected by the optical Audio out socket, should that mean the built in speakers are muted and speaker volume controlled by the TV remote? Hoping someone can advise, Mick.

Who comes up with the part numbers for things? by Brian Gaff
Is it just meant to be so complicated nobody can remember which model they actually wanted and what the differences are? I think I'll start a campaign for things to be named like cars and they are of manufacture. so this one in the thread above could, for example be called the Nigel 2016 TV, and so on. There are a lot of names to choose from after all and when you want other products we...
