Local DAB vs distant DAB reception..... by [email protected]
Hi, I find if I put up a omnidirectional DAB dipole, I can get 3 local ensembles, Oxford, Northants and HBB on chs 10B, 10C and 10D as well as the national BBC and digital 1 ensembles at 11D and 12B. Unsurprisingly the more distant ensembles do not come in. If I put up a directional high gain DAB yagi aerial pointed towards London, I can get CE digital On 12C, Switch digital on 12A and DRG...

Imigration of reptiles? by Brian Gaff[_2_]

Freeview lets move da channels again.. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
So what are they up to this time. 5USA suggests its going to move to ch 21 on Wednesday, while a new channel called Spike or similar (why) is going to start, as if we do not have enough already, and does this mean the demise of Viva at last, which has had identity issues for some time. Is this the brodcasting equivelent of a supermarket moving its stock around or what? Brian --

accent peculiarity by Graham Murray
the dog from that film you saw writes: Can you imagine the outcry there would have been if they had used a white actor made up black? So none of the 'Golden Oldie' stations will be showing episodes of the "Black and White Minstrel Show" then. :)

Watching Youtube using VLC by NY
In the latest (15-28 April 2015) edition of Computer Active magazine there is an article (page 52) that refers to being able to watch Youtube videos in VideoLan VLC. It says (I'm paraphrasing) 1. Copy the URL from Youtube to the clipboard 2. Open VLC 3. Media | Open Network Stream 4. Paste URL into "PLease enter a network URL" field

What to do with cracked LED screen? by Jaffna Dog
My father-in-law bought a 42-inch 'LG' LED TV, to take to the family in Sri Lanka, carrying it as checked hold baggage, and then across the country in the luggage compartment of a coach. Unsurprisingly, when they unpacked it, from improvised packaging, apparently keeping it in the original box would mean having to pay import duty, the screen had several cracks in it, and it did not produce a...

Subtitle woes by Davey
Suddenly, the BBC seems to be having a repetitive problem with its subtitles, in that they stop for several seconds, while the conversation continues onscreen, and then suddenly all the missing words suddenly scream through at once, so that the whole lot is missed completely. This happened at least three times during the forty minute programme of Graham Norton, and it happened during the Formula...

Singing aerials by Brian Gaff[_2_]
What is the best way to stop aerials from singing in winds from certain directions. OK blocking up the ends of masts can be one way to sort some of the noised, but I can hear one from across the road so goodness knows what it must sound like inside thehouse. I remember when I had my rotator on the roof how it sounded inside, so... My feeling is that most modern aerials are of flimsy...

Realism? Ha! by Bill Wright[_2_]
The realism of tonight's Wallace and Grommett was ruined for me by the slightly inaccurate depiction of the TV aerials in the distance, in one brief scene near the end. The magic evaporated in that instant. I don't pay my TV licence in order to see such sloppiness. Bill

Digital streaming, politicians. etc. by David[_13_]
I have this hazy memory of, I think, Cameron pontificating about the wonders of next generation networks. Gigiabit per second or more, and you can download a complete film in virtually no time at all. Which is a load of low hanging hairy stuff at the moment. What brought this on is my decision to download the latest Formula 1 episodes from the BBC on iPlayer.

Lost subtitles by Davey
I turned on 'Hardtalk' on BBC1 early this morning, and turned off the sound so as not to disturb the wife. The subtitles started, and then after a couple of minutes, just stopped. Once it was clear that they were not coming back, I switched to BBC News on Ch. 130, which shares the same programming at night, and there they were, just as they should have been on BBC1. How does this happen, the same...

?Viva by Woody[_5_]
"Hugh Newbury" wrote in message ... Viva Freeview Channel 21 "Starts broadcasting at 9am". It's now 11.20am. What sort of channel can this be? On another planet? Viva has been ditched on Freeview as of today. 5USA is moving from 31 to 21, and 31 will carry the new station Spike.
