A question about taps by Marky P
Now, I'm only a beginner so please accept my ignorance on this one. I've been trying to understand taps and their use. They appear to differ from a splitter, but why is a tap used instead of a splitter? I've noiticed they have different values, are these attenuations? If so, why would the signal need to be attenuated by the tap? Marky P.

Deinterlacing DW problem solved by Agamemnon
I've finally figured out the right combination of filters to deinterlace Doctor Who using VirtualDub. The easy way is to use the built in VirtualDub deinterlace filter which blends the fields together but the problem with that is that it produces a blurred image on ever still and it's even worse on title sequences and scrolling banners such as the one on News24 which at its worst gives you...

Question about TVs by mike bishop
First, thanks for all the replies to my previous two topics. Now, I'm looking at two Samsung TVs, which are about the same price: http://tinyurl.com/yvajxn http://tinyurl.com/275brx Under the hood, they seem to be pretty much identical except that the first (grey) one is HD ready and apparently has better sound. Yet the second (black) one has many more reviews on the Internet, and shops like...

Bill's marvelous article on satellite distribution systems by Marky P
I've got to rate Bill for his article on satellite disribution systems. Totally riveting. I will print it out and read it again as I hate reading long articles on screen. One thing I'd like to know more about is distributing Sky +. For example, in a block of 8 flats, would it be better to use two 8 way multiswitches (one for the combined main feed & one dedicate Sky + feed) via a tap, or...

TOT thought for today by Bill Wright
'Political correctness is the natural continuum from the party line. What we are seeing once again is a self-appointed group of vigilantes imposing their views on others. It is a heritage of communism, but they don't seem to see this.' --Doris Lessing

Splits after a Masthead Amp by Geoff Lane
I've got a Proception masthead amp powered by it's own PSU feeding 4 outlets but currently only using three. If I subsequently want 5 feeds should I use a passive splitter on one outlet or would a powered splitter be better. Or more to the point as the masthead is already amplified is a subsequent powered splitter a definite NO NO. Geoff Lane

Matsui Portable - Channel Skipping by martinf
We've an old Matsui portable TV that has a channel skipping feature on it. It allows you to select channels to 'skip' when using the Channel up/down buttons on the remote. At the moment, channels 2, 3 and 4 are set to skip when they shouldn't be (Only channel 2 was when I started, now I've turned off 3 and 4!) To turn skipping on, you press PRESET - SKIP - PRESET. This in reverse doesn't...

Has my LCD screen just fried itself? by Cuzman
The screen went black. Then a big green wave slowly went from the right-hand side of the screen towards the middle, before fading away a quarter of the way along the screen. I changed channel but all I could hear was sound. No picture. I turned it off and let it cool down. When I turned it back on there were several random lines across the screen of all different colours. Once again, no...

Promax Analyser STOLEN - What to replace by -
Can't really believe it happened but my Promax MC577 was stolen yesterday from inside a customers house, along with my Bosch SDS+ drill and bizarrely a 1m long SDS+ drill bit. Cut a long story short, I was on the roof, the gear was in the hallway with the door open, and the customer was inside the house tapping away on the PC. I had finished outside pretty much so put the tools inside, then...

Setup help by shazzbat
Hi folks, I've just got a digilogic freeview box, and set it up according to the instructions. The TV and the VCR/DVD player are both by Bush if that makes any difference. The problem is that when I turn on the digibox, the picture I get is squashed into a lozenge shape and whizzing across the screen at quite a rate. Like the "rolling" that we used to get with old TVs, but vertically...

From past experience the electrical contractors who usually wire new houses know little about TV signals and yet decisiosn they take can make or break your chances of getting good reception. I want to specify a type of...

TOT possible purchase by Bill Wright
I've seen an advert on eBay for a grand piano. It sounds ideal for me. The vendor is in Devon somewhere. It's a really good quality piano, something I've always wanted.The only thing is, the vendor says it's suffered 'slight impact damage' and it's 'sold as seen'. Do any of you guys know if 'slight impact damage' would be much of a problem with such an instrument? Could it affect the tuning...
