Purpose to my old TU-DSB30 SKY DIGIBOX by Blaty
I bought recently a new Sky Digibox and I wanted to find a purpose to my old one, which a PANASONIC TU-DSB30 SKY DIGIBOX is. I took it without the viewing card to my apartment in Benidorm where I have installed a 1m dish oriented to Astra 28.2. I am aware that no BBC channels are available there but there are many channels like Skynews, CNN etc, which are not in AST02D (small foot print), and I...

Pay to (Free)view by Geoff Lane
I see Sky are soon to launch a subscription service on DTT but to enable sufficient bandwidth Sky3, SkyNews and SkySportsNews are being withdrawn as free channels and are to be put on the subscription channel. I wonder how long the description of 'Freeview' can remain for DTT. Geoff Lane

Free Sky Channels by Dubba
Hi all I've just been on the phone to my mother who reports that she has started to be able to watch premium Sky channels on her FreeSat box. I was sceptical until she told me what she was watching on Sky Sports 1 and I checked it. I then phoned my Grandad (a fellow FreeSat user) who confirmed this! Have Sky messed up on encryption or is it some kind of promotion? Thanks

23" HDTV with sony freeview DVDRW recorder, for mainly SD programmes? by none
Hi I have a standard 20" 4:3 CRT telly and a sony freeview DVD recorder. I would like to get a slightly bigger telly that takes up less room but still plays DVD's and BBC1&ITV programmes as well as my old telly. If I am going to buy a new tv, should I get a HDready one so that I dont have to buy another tv in 3-4 years time? As I understand it, if I get a decent 23" HDtv it should be able to

to housing managers by Bill Wright
We are already getting calls that are obviously the result of snow settling on aerials and dishes. If the forecast is to be believed there will be more of these tomorrow. If you have complaints of poor reception I suggest you advise people of this possibility and (unless there's clear evidence of a genuine fault) ask them to ring back on Monday if the problem is still there. Where dishes...

Where can I get traditional aerial plugs? by Dave Plowman (News)
In article , Bob Latham wrote: I like to solder the inner conductor of my aerial leads. All the plugs I've obtained over the last few years seem to be determined I shouldn't do this.

Where can I get traditional aerial plugs? by Bill Wright
"Bob Latham" wrote in message ... Does anyone know where to get the plugs from that allow the inner wire to pass right through for soldering? Antiference ones are OK but you need to sink the heat away or the plastic melts. Not a problem in reality. Bill

Updating of EPG by AJM
Can it be that a nil response so far to my query posted under this subject heading on 10/2/07 is because I sought an informed opinion? If so, I am quite amenable to a speculative opinion - or indeed any opinion. AJM

Aspect switching by Paul D.Smith
OK, got my new 16:9 TV and I've been playing with the aspect settings and, surprise-surprise, none of them do exactly what I want. Anyway, this got me wondering how the magic "aspect ratio switching" works? Does it really? Problems I can think of already are... - How does analogue signal it? Special teletext page? - How does digital signal it? Probably not too bad as you have a digital...

Sky TV on computer by Doug Paulley
I don't have a telly, and don't really have anywhere to put one. Currently I watch Freeview and TopupTV through my computer. I am thinking of moving to Sky. Do I understand that it isn't really possible to get most channels directly on my computer due to Sky's closely-guarded CAM system? With Topup TV, I have a DVB card in my computer, a Phoenix card reader, a software cam emulator and a valid...

OT Martin Luther King moment. by Bill Wright
I had my nap tonight and I drempt that I went to a house in response to a complaint about the communal TV system. The house was very cluttered, especially with pieces of grey and black leatherette. Two large industrial sewing machines occupied most of the living room and two members of the family were busy making some sort of item from the leatherette. One of them was a lady of about 60 with...

Humax PVR9200T by Docka
The Humax PVR9200T ..."The Hummy"...is it obsolescent? Comet and DSG (Currys and Dixons ) appear no longer to be selling this PVR and Martin Dawes is selling it at 172.50 and John Lewis at 199.Meanwhile - the kiss of death - Richer Sounds are selling them off at 199! With Freeview Playback demanding a 10 second full 8 day EPG download - it looks like the Hummy is about to be replaced...
