Calling all Switch Mode PSU experts or Televes Avant 5 experts.... by Stephen[_3_]
To cut a long story short, I've recently acquired two Televes Avant 5 compact headend units along with a PCT3.0 prgrammer, with no mains leads or data cables and an incorrect instruction book Using a bog standard Telefunken mains lead (as found on casstte players of years ago) and a standard 2m length or ethernet patch lead, (thanks to this venerable newsgroup) I've succeeded in programming...

Samsung LE26R74 by Rick Hughes[_2_]
A bit vague, but I thought I'd try. My parents have a Samsung LE26R74BD LCD TV, that is wall mounted. This was supposed to be the best selling 26" LCD in UK ... so must be a few out there. They have just bought a larger TV to go on that wall mount, and wish to put the original TV on a 'desk top/pedestal stand. One came with the TV .. but they can't find it (probably still in box when they...

Simple freeview box (RF Modulator) by Jim
Yes I am one of those old gits (not to mention tight sods as well, it's my mothers fault she was a jok) who refuse to dump there CRT in for one of these flat jobbies, so I'm looking for suggestion for a simple Freeview box that works via an RF modulator, I already have a couple of 9200T (one in bedroom one in living room), but want a simple box for normal viewing in living when Crystal...

Humax 9200 - not switched off? by Victor Delta[_2_]
I always switch my Humax 9200 (using latest firmware) back to stand-by at night. The following day, when I come to switch it on, even though the clock appears on the display, it comes on extremely quickly - i.e. without the usual run up - as if it is actually on. The only other times I have known this happen are if you switch it on less than 15 minutes before a scheduled recording - which is...

Small screen TV with Freeview HD by divoch
I know that I shall not see the benefit of HD on 19 inch TV. However, in order to be able to watch all the available Freeview channels , such as BBC HD, Freeview HD is needed. And yes, I now that programs on BBC HD tend to be repeats but, the scheduled time may just suit me and, without Freeview HD, I would not have the option to watch it. Also, I do not want a big TV in my bedroom or...

Crystal Palace - Freeview HD reception. by Michael Chare
The BBC HD channels are transmitted from Crystal palace on channel 31 at half the power level of the SD channels. I live in a marginal reception area, and whilst I can receive 4 of the Freeview muxes perfectly, the mux on channel 32 has a low quality level, and the mux on channel 34 is useless most of the time. Is there anyway of determining whether I can receive the HD channels OK other...

Does anyone monitor sound levels on transmissions these days? We have been blasted with sound several times this evening on BBC1 Sandy Heath. It seems to be getting very common recently. John

DSO and the scams by Bill Wright[_2_]
In Yorkshire we have DSO in few months, so all the old people have had a fat and important looking envelope through the letter-box telling them about the help scheme. Although the thing is not worded to cause alarm, it is causing confusion and already the reports of outrageous rip-offs by aerial firms are coming in. A friend rung me tonight to tell me that his mum and dad had paid 300 for...

Blake SR18 range by Bill Wright[_2_]
They fit the dipole so that the cable comes off the wrong way, going towards the reflector instead of towards the cradle. Also they use those horrible wingnuts instead of proper nuts. Does anyone agree with me about this? I'm intending to raise the matter with them. Also, does anyone use the wideband ones? Any good? Bill

MPEG2 TS to MPEG2 PS (Humax to TV/DLNA) by Paul D Smith[_2_]
This might help someone. Humax (and probably other) PVRs create MPEG2 TS output but TVs with media player capability typically require MPEG2 PS output. The following (run off the command line) converts between the two. ffmpeg -map 0.0:0.0 -map 0.1:0.1 -map 0.2:0.2 -i Test.ts -target pal-dvd -vcodec copy -acodec copy Test.mpeg -acodec copy -newaudio ---

Being Human - Sunday 6th March by Dickie Mint
Our DSAT HD recording of this(on the Humax HDR) suffered from one major loss od sound at the beginning (cage scene) and several of several seconds during the episode. Anyone else? No apology, so either my Humax or the usual inability of a broadcaster to actually monitor what they're putting out. richard

1080i or 1080p? by Scott[_2_]
I have a Humax HD (Freeview) PVR. There is a choice between 1080p and 1080i output. My TV is compatible with both. I understood that 1080p was better but also that the programmes are transmitted as 1080i so I wondered which is the appropriate setting to use (or does it make no difference)? Thanks Scott
