New Year Sponsored by Rolex. by Brian-Gaff
So there I was at 7pm on BBC 4 on new years day, and the concert started from Austria. I was shocked to hear, many times that it was sponsored by Rolex. This is the BBC man! You cannot advertise on there! I found out on there that the Vienna Boys Choir now accepts girls, which seems a little odd considering the name, but I have to say the engineering was very good. a realistic dynamic range...

OT Facebook by Bill Wright[_3_]
This is really me testing Thunderbird, which hasn't been working for a while. But anyway, amongst all the other ephemera and detritus flying around in a totally random pattern in my brain like the leaves and the grandchildren in the garden, is a thought that I will attempt to explain below. I used Facebook for a while. I only got into it because someone I was doing a bit of work for wanted...

Digital TV in Weston by Dickie mint[_2_]
Spent Christmas in a budget hotel in Weston Super Mare. One joke allowed! and we saw the sea in three times - bonus?! Hotel TVs had a problem. Weston sees Mendip, Wenvoe and Stockland Hill. Added problem is that Wenvoe and Mendip channels are interleaved in same frequencies. Some rooms had BBC1 West on channel 1, some BBC Wales and others BBC1 South West. Hotel staff had no idea of how...

KB3035583 by Roderick Stewart[_3_]
If you have Windows 7 and get an optional update, check what it is. I got KB3035583 today - again - and marked it as "Do not show" - again. I've killed this one several times but it keeps coming back. It's the one that puts that little square "Upgrade to Windows 10" icon near the bottom right of the screen. If there is anybody in your household who might click it accidentally and initiate an...

The Heroes of Telemark by Bill Wright[_3_]
Why was it blurred? Why could I see PAL-style chroma patterning when I watched in HD? Why was the sound poor? Surely better prints are available of this famous film. Bill

Domestic mysteries solved or deferred by Bill Wright[_3_]
1. The living room telly feeds its audio into a pre-amp, which feeds a power amp, which feeds two speakers. The right channel started acting funny. Distortion on loud passages and a general reduction in volume. I suspected the power amp, and wasn't too worried because it's one of a pair originally used in bridged mode, one for each channel, and the other one is OK. I turned the pre-amp round...

Top tip by Bill Wright[_3_]
If you find that the remote handset for the workshop TV set doesn't seem to work very well after you've been paint spraying, have a look at the little infra-red LED at the front end. Bill

Rip off? by Dickie mint[_2_]
My son has moved house and jusr had a satellite dish installed for £250. Standard 3 bedroom semi, no installation problems. Is that a standard price or has he been ripped off. He says the installation is good quality, so it's not a botch job merchant. I'd have done it for him but he has no ladders, and does not know any of his neighbours to borrow any. And he's in Nottingham and I'm in...

One foot in the grave Xmas specials on Yesterday by tim.....
(Bill - note the capital letter!) I dunno what it is with those of you who think that there's something wrong with repeats/rerun channels as ISTM that they provide opportunist for gems such as this. I was never a fan of "Victor" as a child, so we didn't habitually watch this series, and I don't think that I have seen them before. But I watched the reruns of the half-hour progs earlier in...

Filtering out channel 28 by alan_m
I have a log period wideband aerial pointed at Bluebell Hill but can also receive very strong signals from Crystal Palace. The CP direction is in the shadow of tall buildings in the town centre whilst Bluebell Hill has a clear path and so is more reliable, hence my preferred transmitter. Both use transmitter channel 28. Bluebell Hill for 'local TV' and Crystal Palace for ArqB...

The Good Old Days by Bill Wright[_3_]
The BBC are have been showing a few of these programmes, from the late 70s and early 80s. They demonstrate the decline in technical and entertainment standards since then. The performers don't use microphones; there are a few mikes at the front of the stage and possibly a boom mike that we don't see. Yet the sound is always perfect. The balance between the instruments of the orchestra and...

Christmas Day so far by Bill Wright[_3_]
1. Hil gets up. 2. Me woken by the sound of a screechy voice whittering on and on. Kind person had brought us some home-made mince pies and was reluctant to leave. Whitter whitter screech whitter. 2. Dog tires of whittering and screeching and gets into bed with me, cuddles up, puts paws over ears. Dog's feet and undercarriage are muddy. 3. I stagger to the bog, barefoot, naked, eyes shut. I...
