Underwater tv by Brian Gaff
I was just thinking. If you wanted to transmit tv to an underwater habitat, how could you do it? Presumably light can only go so far under water and radio even less far. Also I wonder what the speed of light is under water. as I suppose if you measure it there its the same but it obviously refracts light so has, one assumes to be different to free air. Brian --

Ideas for new channel. by Brian Gaff
PI TV Politically incorrect T V showing old Benny hill shows, Love thy Neighbour and old Jim Davidson routines, perhaps Cannon and Ball as well. New stuff could be interviews with employers about 'handicapped employees after they had been gotten drunk. What really goes on in decision making ie box ticking, and what else, well that would do for a start, could be very entertaining, we...

Do Philips MR16 LED bulbs cause RF interference by Scott[_2_]
I am starting a new thread to focus (excuse the pun) on one aspect of LED bulbs. I am grateful to all those who contributed to the previous thread offering innovative solutions. However, now that the supplier appears to concede there is a problem I am planning to return them and purchase a 'reputable' make. Does anyone have Philips 12 Volt (MR16) LED spot lamps? Could you let me know if they...

Question.. by Brian Gaff
What is the purpose or target viewing audience of what sounds like M I 5, one assumes this is not secret agent tv, but my five, but it seems to have mostly the worst of channel five on it not the best. Occasionally it has an odd watchable thing but it was much more interesting when they put out the plus 24 channel on freeview instead, in my view. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting...

lift conditions in recent days by Brian Gaff
I've noticed many extra dab stations and some other stuff, like Heathrow complain on approach that French ATC is breaking in. I have however not noticed much problem with the freeview this time. I guess the ducting has been in a different direction to strong uhf transmitters here, so would not be noticed that much. Incidentally the problem with my loft aerial turned out to be the feeder...

BBC lost their atlas? by Woody[_5_]
On the BBC web site the other day was an item about 16 miles in 60 seconds - the Flying Scotsman on the Severn Valley Railway in the West of England. Last time I looked the SVR was in the West Midlands. Last night a woman reporting on foot from the carnage on the M40 stated it was the "motorway from London to Wales." Eh? Or has Wales been moved and no-one told us? Meeja Studies strikes...

It's almost like having valves... by Paul D Smith[_2_]
My LCD TV, a pretty recent Panasonic, has an interesting problem that I thought the group might find amusing. Being as tight as insert suitable phrase, I keep the house at a pleasant 18degC and with the TV close to the chimney (partially blocked but there's still some air through it), I imagine that corner of the room is slightly colder. So I find that when I turn on the TV I observe that...

Bizarre recording clash last night by PeterC
Freesat on BBC4 HD, recordings on only BBC4 HD (2 consecutive) and BBC2 HD (1, starting at the same time as the 2nd. recording on BBC4). Warning of clash came up! Now, only 2 channels and how the hell can consecutive programmes on the same channel 'overlap'? -- Peter. The gods will stay away whilst religions hold sway

Emley problems by Woody[_5_]

Do LED bulbs interfere with DAB radio? by Brian-Gaff
What you need is a small scanning radio with an am output. I used to have one when I could see and it was very easy to find nasty interfering devices with that device. Probably loads on Ebay, Need to cover band 3 for this use but a dc to 1 gig one will be very handy fro tracking nasty noises down.

Breaking News: George Michael dead by Davey
You would think that nothing else had happened over Christmas, except the Russian 'plane crash. Every BBC News bulletin has led with the news about George Michael. But if you did not follow him or his singing, to keep on hearing about it is boring. Elvis, yes, he was important. But George Michael? Enough is enough! -- Davey.

breaking news, less than 50 percent watch tv by Brian-Gaff
Well that is live tv, they alall either record it or just wait for the boxed set, which of course has no box and is basically streamed so you never actually own anything at all.

Local low-power transmitters by Steve Thackery[_4_]
I've been having some fun perusing the very informative Wolfbane web site (http://www.wolfbane.com/) and a question comes to mind. I see that a lot of low power local transmitters transmit only three of the muxes. For instance, near me I have Ambergate, Bolehill, Belper, Derby plus others, and they only transmit muxes 1, 2 and B. Does that mean that people using those transmitters are missing...
