PCI card issues - resolve? or new card reccomendatins? by Lobster
I have an old Nebula DigiTV PCI card in my PC, and am using it to record movies etc to my HD, and then streaming these to a Western Digital Live media player. The problem is that the DigiTV output files are a bit flakey; they are .mpg (no more info available); they record to HD at ~1Gb/hour. I can play them back fine using Nebula's own DigiTV player, but the files are unstable if I play them...

Camcorder to catch a burglar by john brooks
Yesterday we learn't from friends that their house has recently been burgled several times. I've heard of people installing hidden camcorders which are 'movement' activated and send their images straight on to the internet. (so the images cannot be destroyed if discovered in the house). Also a recorded phone call can be sent to friends houses so that they can then ring the local police to tell...

DOGs by Alan[_4_]
I understand that as well as the channel DOG we already have it is a requirement to have a product placement "P" DOG when the programme contains the product being advertised. These "P" DOGs appear to be full black to full white so no subtle transparent mode! -- Alan news2009 {at} admac {dot} myzen {dot} co {dot} uk

Warning for the faint-hearted by Bill Wright[_2_]
At the start of Doctors we were warned that the programme had strong themes. How lilly levered is the daytime audience, in the BBC's estimation? Bill

9200T channel switching. by David Paste[_2_]
Just had a very strange 5 minutes of this box flicking to BBC1 after a few seconds of switching to any other channel. A quick flash of "please wait..." would show in the top right of the screen before automatically tuning to BBC1. Any ideas why?! (Remote has fresh batteries, and even blocking IR path didn't stop the switch. Signal from Winter Hill. Weirdnes has stopped now.)

Adjacent regions by Steve Thackery[_2_]
My Mum went to one of these talks for old people about DSO the other day. They said something that puzzles me: even if you currently receive the wrong region in anaoluge, you'll be able to get the right region after DSO, without making any changes to your aerial. She lives in Ripley, Derbyshire, and currently receives the regional news from the West Midlands. I haven't been in the loft,...

You and Yours by Dave Plowman (News)
I think it was on Y&Y yesterday where they discussed household energy efficiency. Using two Coronation Street houses to illustrate things at some exhibition or other. The very ernest young lady 'expert' explained that the fluorescent light fitting in one kitchen was dreadfully inefficient like all fluorescents. Wonder what she thought CFL stood for? -- *It's lonely at the top, but you eat...

Digital help scheme by gordon Sinclair
I told one of my customers to contact this lot rather than pay me for an extension. She had a crt portable working from an inside aerial.The 'installer' supplied a digibox, and tuned it in with the inside aerial, said that'll be fine and left. She already had an aerial in the main room but he didnt even check that.

BBC Programmes failed to record by AJM
I felt steam coming out of my ears shortly after 10pm this evening when I realised that "Waking The Dead" on BBC 1 and "The Secret War On Terror" on BBC2 had not been recorded on my Humax 9300T. They did not show in the list of recorded programmes nor did they show on the recording schedule as they had done earlier in the evening. I wonder if anyone else had similar failures? I receive a strong...

TOT flicking hell fire by Bill Wright[_2_]
This dinner time I was eating a very nice duck in black bean sauce, from a bowl. There was a lot of sauce. It was dark sticky stuff. I had a spoon resting on the rim of the bowl. A heavy file slid off the printer, due to the latter suddenly deciding to do an auto-clean and wobbling a bit. I attempted to grab the file but missed and it hit the spoon handle with some force. The spoon see-sawed...
