Remotes by Woody[_5_]
I have recently acquired a Humax Freesat HB1000S and a HDR-FoxT2 PVR. They are in the same room and their remotes interact. Does anyone know if there is a way around this problem or will I have to swap my sat Rx back to a Sky multi-room box? -- Woody

Any way to get an alert for a particular episode? by Phil Reynolds
Is there any way to get an alert as to when a particular episode of a TV series is due to be shown? (using either the Internet or facilities on a Sky+ HD box to get the alert) It is an episode of "Heartbeat", for which I have the title and the series and episode numbers, but it is rarely shown, usually only on "graveyard shift" showings. (The High Life, S12E15) Any ideas how I might finally get...

Hi Bill, I was wondering if I could pick your brain about mobility scooters? This newsgroup probably isn't the most appropriate venue so if you are willing, would email be ok? Is the f2s address in your messages valid? Thanks in advance,

streamed UK TV abroad by fred[_3_]
I canme across this while looking for ITV racing http://www.watchallchannels.com/ Now I'd like to watch the horse racing in Spain (ITV1, ITV4). 1. Does it really work abroad ? Possibly some programmes blacked out? 2. Is it legal? 3. Is it malware free? The last paragraph states: Live TV Online on your PC, Laptop, Smartphone, Tablets and other

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...
