Aerial Amp - feeling a tingle by John
I recently bought a DVB-T Stick so that I could watch Freeview on my PC. It turned out to be a dud and I am awaiting its return. However, I am a bit concerned that I felt a slight tingle between the coax outer and my PC case. My aerial is a recent installation and has a distribution amp fed by a power supply at the main TV set location. Could this be a potential cause of problems for a DVB-T...

OT *The Great Escape* by Low Life #3
being a USofA Southerner living in Germany and a BSkyB customer since 2000 or so I've noticed that watching *The Great Escape* during the Christmas season has become a British tradition. It's a fabulous movie, for sure, but how did this come about? Last year we purchased a *Brand Name* 1080HD LCD telly for Christmas, and the picture quality is superb. And I watched *The Great Escape*. ...

The planet by Bill Wright
If we're alll supposed to be making our houses more energy efficient, why don't they fit two airbricks behind the place where the fridge will go? Then the big radiator thing on the back of the fridge could be boxed in. Thus the fridge would use less leccy. OK, in winter we'd loose the heat from the fridge. So put a mechanical control behind the fridge to control the airflow. Bill

Wow by Dave Farrance
Mr MI5 really has outdone himself this time. The latest version of his spam script seems to have reposted a whole bunch of posts that were made by other people at this time last year, and mixed that in with his usual paranoid nonsense posts. And he's got a Virgin cable account to do it, so god knows how many posts he'll blast down his broadband pipe this time. -- Dave Farrance

Humax PVR9200T questions by Micheal Ra
I am considering buying the Humax and have a few questions. The Humax documentation states that it requires 10cm clearance from things like a TV or a VCR (page GB4). It also says not to "stack electronic equipments on top of the product". While the shelf on my TV stand would place the device at least 10cm from the TV I would like to put it on that shelf stacked directly above a VCR and below a...

Will the Cricket World Cup be shown in High Definition? by [email protected]
Viewers in the UK have got used to popular sporting events such as the English Premiership Football, Wimbledon, the World Cup, and domestically hosted cricket being shown in High Definition (HDTV) so were disappointed that the Ashes series was not shown in the high definition 1080i format (and also disappointed with England's performance! ;-) ). Does anyone know if the Cricket World Cup being...

Terrestrial Television transmissions and CO^2 emissions. by Robert Wilson
Hi, I doubt anyone will agree with me but do people think that it would be better if we all went over to satellite television reception? If you think of all the power required for terrestrial transmismitters from the primaries alone, you're talking about 14.4MW of power running continually. That figure is taken from the bbc.co.uk/reception page. Now I would hazard a guess that TX's are 50%...
