HD question by Scott[_2_]
I am still using a CRT television in my kitchen and plan to keep it a bit longer. I wondered if I could buy an HD tuner and connect via SCART. I am looking at the Manhattan Plaza HD-T2 as the only unit I can find with SCART.. I cannot work out whether it is possible to output HD channels via SCART - obviously not as an HD signal. The manual says: 'If your television has no HDMI socket, then...

New old channels by Brian Gaff
Why oh why are there so many channels around. Just on Freeview in the last fewweeks, Home and True crime have surfaced. However they are in fact just re running old stuff from the other already existing channels or bringing in really awful US made stuff that appears as if the people in them had to pay the camera crew to make them. Even here there are loads of cops and killers and mob wives...

Adding to the gaiety of nations by Bill Wright[_3_]
I might have mentioned this before but I can't remember, so here it is again. A few weeks ago I was trudging round Morrisons when the background music thing suddenly played Barbara Ann by the Beachboys. It's a catchy tune and it has many happy associations for those of us of a certain age. So I started to bop along behind my trolley, and I think I might even have been doing a subdued little...

music while you try to think by Bill Wright[_3_]
I've been to the bank to open an account. I was made to watch a series of videos that explained everything. Trouble is the videos had music that made it hard for me to hear the words. How daft is that? The girl said, "Well it's upbeat music Mr Wright. It's to make you feel all bubbly and cheerful." I said, "Whereas it it just makes me bubble with rage and feel I'd cheerfully murder the...

Keyboard for TV? by Kenny
I have a 50" LG Smart TV, internet seems slow on it in comparison with PC's, tablets and phones all using the same wi-fi connection. I find using the on screen keyboard with the remote very fiddly and slow and was wondering about using one of those mini keyboards instead. Any recommendations and any pitfalls to watch out for?

Happy Valley sound quality by Davey
I caught the end of an interview this morning on BBC News with somebody who was something to do with the series Happy Valley, which I have not watched. She was saying that there had been initially some complaints about the speech on the broadcasts being mumbled, and that they had checked the audio quality on the subsequent episodes, even playing them on an old-style TV set, and 'they left the...

Recording HD from Freeview/Freesat - Xpost by David[_13_]
I have been nudged back into thinking about recording TV using a PC by the dire performance of my Bush satellite decoder. All the "Smart" stuff gave up a while back when they changed the iPlayer specs. The EPG keeps flipping from showing what is on to "No information available" and mostly you can't see what is on now or next. So, to replace it with something more recent (which will probably...

Sick hummy fixed by Vir Campestris
Our HDR Fox-T2 started playing silly buggers. Kept rebooting, lost several recordings was getting worse. So I took it apart, stuck the drive in a PC, and checked it - all OK. Put the drive back intending to back up the files I most wanted. Fiddling about with an app to walk the directory, and suddenly realised that sitting next to my PC it had been running for an hour or so and hadn't...

Oh dear me, another technical fault by Phi
The BBC blamed the "angle" of long-lens photographs for making the stunt appear closer to the Cenotaph than it actually was. However, images later revealed tyre marks surrounding the nearby women's memorial remembering the women who served in the Second World War. Chris Evans, Top Gear's new lead host, later apologised for the...

Huge shift in Lip Sync BBC1 1900 by Dickie mint[_2_]
Several times over the last few weeks, when BBC1HD (108) goes into the One Show the lip sync is way out. It seems to be an effect of the ad, sorry trail, voice over. Anyone else see this? Solved by switching to 109 (BBC2SD) and back. Humax Foxsat HDR.
