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).

Humax and More4 by Vir Campestris
.... since lots of people here seem to have them. We've found that if we try to record something on More 4 our FoxT2 goes mad. It becomes horribly unreliable, drops recordings, locks up, won't play things - I did think it was dying. Then I did a retune for a channel update, and normal service was resumed. Until I scheduled something else on More4... Anyone else seen this?

Stop the midwife by Bill Wright[_3_]
Or whatever it's called. Anyone watching it later, have a listen about 20 mins from the end. We reckon there's a modern police siren in the background. Bill

Smelly Tellies by Brian Gaff
No not smellivision as in aromas generated to match the content, this is the smell of new TVs. I was round somebody's house the other day and smelt this strange smell, one known to me from many years ago when old valve tellies were getting too hot and melting something important. Charred carbon resistor and hot smelly transformers. he claimed to not smell it, but I traced it to his TV, a...

Are Lidl still doing sat dish + tuner offers? by Java Jive[_2_]
As per subject. I've tried searching their site, but unfortunately it's the usual over-engineered, under-tested pile of sh*te - for example ... You can search for stores within a given radius of your postcode, six stores came up for me. You follow the link for the first one to find what's on offer. No sat dish, so you click 'back', but now the search page has lost the f*king postcode (yet...

dialogue on some programmes by Brian Gaff
Now I'm not an Eastenders view/listener, but had it running while waiting for Spy in the wild. last night. The dialogue was from OK to mumble aand background noise, while the AD track was always very loud. Is it always this way? I'd have thought that by now having been running so long the sound engineers could have done better? In case you are wondering about the perverse reason for a blind...
