How much??? by Damian
Hi all, My folks need a new aerial for their cottage in Kirby Stephen (CA2 postcode area I think). ActionAerials came out today and told them as its a weak signal area for Freeview they would need a Triax DMX10 and masthead amplifier mounted on the chimney breast (about 3 - 4 metres of cable) at a cost of 246 + VAT!! This seems ridiculous as I had a CAI approved company fit a Televes DAT45

What do I need to record Slingbox broadcast onto my PC? by 01steven
If I'm watching my Sky broadcast on my laptop elsewhere because it's being sent via a Slingbox, can I record what I'm watching as a video file on my laptop? Or better still, can I set a timer to record it? Excuse the ignorance- am considering buying a Slingbox and want to know more about its functionality... Regards

Freeview SNR by Geoff Lane
I have a Proception proMHD14V masthead amp in my loft powering 3 outlets. The aerial is an old one but new satellite cable is connected directly to it and new cable feeds two of the three outlets. My living room is fed by some old brown coax cable behind the wall. Reception fine in all rooms. I have a Netgem freeview box that gives some decent diagnostic data

2 sky boxes by hhhhancock
In the old ananogue days you could have 2 sky boxes in a property, the second box fed via a splitter and satellite cable. The second box could access channels but only on the same polarity as the master box. This meant you would not have to change the lnb. Does this apply to the current digital boxes as well please?

TOT Conundrum - Kettles by Java Jive
As others have seen fit to go rabidly off-topic about electricity consumption here, here's my ha'p'worth ... The table below represents a calculation of the energy used by two kettles to boil the same amount, 1.08L, of water. (If your newsreader doesn't space it correctly, copy'n'paste it into something that uses a fixed width font, eg: Notepad) Start Finish Time Error kW Units ...

USB2 DVB-S receivers by Brian W
Does such a beast exist? I've seen plenty of USB2 DVB-T receivers but nothing for receiving free-to-air satellite channels. I need one that will support Media Center in Vista and/or DVB Viewer (BDA drivers) Thanks in advance!

Doctor Who progressive or interlaced? How to record it digitally. by Agamemnon
While I was editing the current episode of Andromeda on ITV4 in order to test out my new AVI/DivX/Xvid capture and editing software (VirtualDub-MPEG2 1.6.15) which I recorded using the Xvid real time Codec set to interlaced, I noticed that the episode seem to have been either deintelaced at source, ie. by the broadcaster, since there is no motion blur in any of the frames where you would...

Soldering aerial plugs by [email protected]
Hi, I've decided to make sure various belling lee connectors are properly made up by following the advice he http://www.megalithia.com/elect/bellinglee/ Everything is easy enough except the last bit: soldering. The only soldering I've done before is copper tube for my pipes with a bloody great blowtorch. The problem I'm having with the connectors is getting the solder to flow down inside...

UHF filters and the digital switchover by Marky P
Here's one for ya! What's gonna happen to all the communal aerial systems that use filters designed for the current DTT frequencies after switchover, when most frequencies will change? Surely it must be difficult to decide what to do, filter wise, when installing a coomunal aerial system now knowing that when the frequencies change after switchover, the system may not work. Marky P.
