Talking Pictures TV HD channel 81 on Freeview by madge
Combined minds The Radio Times last week and this week mentions this channel but a retune on my Samsung HDTV it is not showing up. I receive my signal from Dover should I be able to view it yet? The usual HD channels are there at the 100's why did they not assign this channel a a number in the 100's? Thanks in advance -- My Kindle/Mobile links page | All Kindles | http://goo.gl/ySe0d

Windows Media Centre in UK - some channels' listings are missing by NY
Does anyone (in the UK) still use Windows Media Centre to record TV programmes? If so, have you found a workaround for a few channels (eg Film 4+1, Talking Pictures TV, Channel 4+1 HD, 4seven HD) having "No data available" in the Guide? I've done a Tasks | TV | Guide | Get Latest Guide Listings but this makes no difference.

Carpet gripper strip by Lobster
I've just pulled up a worn-out fitted carpet in readiness for a replacement. It had been fitted on a solid floor, using carpet gripper strip which had been glued to the floor; and in spite of my best efforts, most of the strips have come away from the floor along with the carpet. A bit odd, as I've replaced third carpet before with no problem, and the grippers date from the previous...

Dropbox users. by Brian-Gaff
I know some post their pictures here and then copy a link to this group. However the last two updates received to the program, 3.10.6 and 7 have a serious issue. they delete the copy public link, and other options in the context menu of the dropbox folder when its opened from the desktop or the tray icon. In the first case, it was deleted as soon as it installed, and in the second, they remain...

Retuning the TV - naive question by Another John
I needed to retune our Freeview TV(s) to recapture ITV4 - as far as I could see, the only channel that had gone awol. Retuning always takes several minutes, but this time our main TV (Sony ) took about 45 minutes before it reached "100%". Is there a rational explanation for this? I thought that perhaps I should have taken the aerial feed out of the PVR and put it directly into the TV...

Programmes produced for BBC by DerekF[_2_]
Many BBC programmes are made by outside companies. With New Tricks the titles at the end of the programme show it is made by a company called Headstrong Pictures owned by Warner Brothers for BBC. How does this system work? Are the programmes scripted by BBC and produced for them and they then own the programme? Can such programmes if no longer wanted by BBC then be offered to other TV...

Classic FM by Brian-Gaff
Is now in stereo on Freeview. So somebody must have been listening after all. Pity so many other stations are not though, such as Smooth and magic. Which brings me to dab. Here not even r4X is stereo, which it is on Freeview, Same seems to go for Asian Network etc. Most of the Absolute channels are mono as is Jazz fm and most of the other pop and ethnic and god stations of DAB. I think they...

TV Freeview picture breaking up, New 4G transmitter and Aeroplanes by john west
Suddenly in the last month or so our Freeview television picture is suddenly breaking up. We got a visit from the 'at800' Engineer who fitted a filter in-line before our television aerial amplifier. Apparently we have a new phone 4G transmitter installed quite near. The engineer said his readings were within accepted limits. We are about 15 miles north east of Heathrow Airport and get a lot...

Misheard title, 45 years on. by Graham.[_5_]
Thought I would re-tube (to coin a phrase) something I have just posted in another place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHgKZgNtsEk On today’s edition of BBC Radio Four’s “The Film Program”, there was an interview with Walter Murch, the Sound Editor of one of Charles Lucas early sci-fi films called “THX1138”

How does closing BBC Three save any money? by Scott[_2_]
I see the 'closure' of BBC Three has not been postponed until after Christmas. I still don't see how this move will save any money at all. If BBC Three continues on-line then the production costs are still there. The multiplex is still there, apparently with BBC One+1 so so savings in transmission costs. Is it maybe that rights cost less if the audience is smaller? On a related theme, is...

CSI by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Just happened to notice that although CSI finished some time ago, there is a one-off two-hour special entitled "Immortality" on Channel 5 tonight at 2200. This reunites some of the old team members, including William Petersen (Gil) and Marg Helgenberger (Catherine). Also, starting next week on Tuesday at 2200 on Channel 5 is the spin-off series CSI Cyber. --
