Triax FM-3 downlead connections by Ron Lowe
Hi, all. I have a triax 3-element FM aerial here. Anyone familiar with it? The downlead connects to the folded dipole in a blue box, as per this photo: http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/ronlowe.abz/DIY/photo#5036579238102908130 1) The connector for the screen is a single piece, with no obvious means of

Finding the problem with a weak mux by Marky P
I must admit, that I didn't really have enough time when I was down in Ilfracombe to do a few tests with the aerial system. As you are probably aware, one mux (ITV Mux A on Ch40 from Wenvoe) was very dodgy, with a severe breaking up problem. Signal strength, according to the DTTV was 50%, but signal quality was Medium. This is also a 64QAM mux, but so is the ITV/C4 mux on Ch34 and that was...

ghost images by Low Life #3
I have 5 cables bundled together with cable binders in an Ikea sheath running up to the back of the TV: SCART, power (I believe you may refer to this as *mains*), RCA audio, HDMI, and coaxial antenna cable. when the Sky digibox is on and using the TV SCART input there are quite noticeable ghost images. If I unplug the coaxial antenna cable the images go away. when we watch using the HDMI...

Leaving Service Mode of Goodmans 2066TS TV (Daewoo C005?) by Paddy3118
Hi, I have a Goodmans TV and kids who pressed several buttons that they cannot remember and ended up setting the TV into "SVC v1" mode. The remote is a little black thing with model number R-40A01 on it. Even turning the set on then off leaves it with "SVC v1" in the top left corner and with the volume set very low. The remote seems to have no effect on the TV, although I put fresh batteries in...

/Exactly/ what frequency would you expect to find a given mux on? by Michael Rozdoba
And no, I don't just mean how does one figure out what your local transmitter claims to be broadcasting on... FWIW, I receive from Pontop Pike, so expected: 1 on C48 (690MHz) 2 on C55 (746MHz) A on C59 (778MHz) B on C62 (802MHz) C on C65 (826MHz) D on C53 (730MHz)

HD on freeview by bugbear
No, I know you can't transmit it. But has anyone else noticed that HD originated material is quite noticeably better, even when seen on freeview? It looks as if having all that lurvely data available at start allows freeview to do its very best. BugBear

DigitalTV/Compter/ arial etc. by Someone
I have an indoor Arial attached to my TV and digibox in my sitting room which picks up a good signal. I bought a PC ( different room) which is supposed to pick up analogue and digital TV.

The public's unrealistic expectations by Bill Wright
Bloody dentist says I've got to have more treatment. The odd thing is, I react in a strange way to being in the dentist's chair. I get very drowsy once he starts the treatment. Apparently it's some sort of defence mechanism. Or something. I struggle to keep awake. If I do fall asleep the dentist and the assistant both assume I'm in a coma or even dead and react accordingly (no I don't mean...

sending video over wireless network by Doug Paulley
I have a Sky box connected via scart to composite to an analogue TV card on one computer. It works quite well. However where Sky was installed is less than ideal (due to their safety regulations etc.) I have a wireless network throughout my flat. Is there a relatively easy way to set my computer to transmit the composite stream on my LAN, and for other computers to be able to receive this?

Samsung LCD Advice Please by Pete
I have recently purchased a 40" Samsung LCD television from Dixons. After it was delivered and installed we observed a crack on the Bezel. Dixons were happy to exchange it and after a week the replacement arrived (with no Crack) Now here is the problem. During the week that we had the TV I was very impressed with the picture quality and (apart from the crack) was very pleased with my...

Transmitter & aerial question (London) by Peter
My daughter has a room in a housein Camberwell and cannot get TV reception from an indoor loop aerial. It has been suggested to me (by my wife) that I get it sorted for her! Her post code is SE5 8QQ and I'm assuming that the transmitter that serves this address is Crystal Palace which rerquires a horizontal group A aerial. I'm assuming that CP is roughly due south of her address and that not...
