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...

[OT] Braun RC wall clock and MSF time signal by Jon[_2_]
I've have a Braun RC wall clock for a few years and have had no problems with it until now. it has an LCD display which shows the current date and up to the leap day it was fine, but when it should have showed for the 1st of March it was showing , so I took the battery out for about 10 minutes and it reset to the pointer to the correct time but it now shows the date to be the 3rd of...

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.

Licensing the use of iPlayer catchup programs by Phi
The Beeb will have make all the listed programs available, where at the moment only about 30 per cent are playable. It looks as if all the american crap like (family guy etc.) takes up huge chunks of space, but is 'not available'

ITV 3 on SKY blackout by Ron
While watching ITV 3 on SKY I've noticed that when the advert break starts and the sponsored by Viking ad comes on there is always a momentary break in the sound and a momentary black screen. Even the EPG vanishes if on. This happens all the time. Is it just my TV and Sky box or is this happening to others? I've also noticed when flicking through the channels that some channels appear...

why do women think we can hear them through walls? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Why is it? You can be two rooms away with the telly and the chip pan on and they'll issue some instruction and expect you to hear what they're on about. Then when you don't they get the hump. Bill

Interesting ITV+1 Subtitles by Davey
The local evening news tonight was most confusing, the subtitles came on 15 seconds before the spoken word. I have seen plenty of mis-coordination, but this was exceptional. -- Davey.

killing the bass (was 'some sort of tone control') by Bill Wright[_3_]
OK, well, putting a capacitor in series with the audio feed worked. Thanks to everyone who responded. I knew the basic idea but I assumed that such a simple solution would be too crude. I have a box of misc capacitors from wayback. Damned if I can remember the colour codes and how they work. A google session has confused me further. The caps that give the right amount of bass cut are...

some sort of tone control? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Thanks everyone for the comments about connecting one audio source to two amplifiers. Yes it works fine! But there's another problem. The little wall-mounted audio units seem (without blowing the dust off my scope) to have a response that goes almost down to DC. The audio is very bass-heavy and boomy, and any LF vibration such as someone walking about on the floor above overloads the amp and...
