colour depth on Toshiba 32wtl66? by bugbear
I've got one of these... http://www.home-entertainment.toshiba.co.uk/consumer/products.nsf/pages/lcdplasma-lcdfreeview-32wlt66?opendocument But when watching some images with smooth vignettes, like sunlight under water, or the UKTV History inter-programmme logo (moving shades of green) I can see quite severe "posterisation". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posterization

Humax 9200 by [email protected]
I have 2 questions.... 1) I would like to record the same programme each week on the same channel, but it is at different times..... Can I do this with the Humax. I can see how I can record at the same time each day, week, etc, but.... 2) Even with the Humax up to it's loudest setting, it is not as loud as when I switch off the Humax and watch analog tv. Plus, if I try and turn up the tv sound...

Sensitive DVB-T recording cards? by Ian Rawlings
Wotcher all. I've got a PVR box (MythTV) currently recording analogue TV as best as it can from the rotten signal I get here in Dorset. I can just about scrape a digital signal out of the brand-new digital installation I've had put in, although if they can't make it better than it is I'll be getting them to take it all away soon. In order to make it useful, I need to be able to get my PVR box...

elementary electronics by Bill Wright
I have been asked by a young person if I have any books I can loan him that will help him gain a knowledge of elementary electronics. I have few such books, but then I thought of t'internet. Can anyone suggest a tutorial-type thing he could work his way through? What he needs to know, I think, is, in no particular order: -- what is AC and what is DC? -- batteries -- ohm's law -- how to work...

Sony LCD confusion by Mister Nobody
Could somebody please enlighten me on the distinction between these Sony 46" LCD models please? KDL46S2010U KDL46V2000U KDL46W2000U Apart from the fact that the latter supports 1080p (?just how necessary), it's not at all obvious. Thanks.

New aerials on flats in Hemel Hempstead by Marky P
Went through Hemel in Herts today & noticed that most of the blocks of flats there had new aerial installations including a high gain aerial (pointing at CP), FM halos, DAB dipoles & SAt dishes! Every block scattered around the town had exactly the same install. They look to me like council/housing association dwellings, so they probably got them all done for a bulk price or something.

Parallel aerials OK or not? by Informer
We are having building work carried out so have scaffolding that is sitting between my house and the house next door. Last week I fitted a high gain aerial for my next door neighbour on the apex of his house using an 18 inch T&K bracket. This week I was hoping to do the same for me. The only issue is that both our aerials will be only inches apart as they will be side by side for much of the...

Aerial broke in the storm but picture OK by Lobster
Just notice that the flat metal plate about 6" square which was formerly attached at right angles to the end of my cheapo Maxview roof aerial is now lying in the back garden; must have come down during the storms of a week or so back. So why haven't I noticed any apparent adverse effect on my (digital) picture then? What does it do? Thanks David

Freecom USB DVB-T - Rubbish by Clive
The existing reviews for this device seem to be divided between, excellent and rubbish for this product. My experience indicates rubbish. I ignored the small aerial and went for an external aerial that supplies existing Freeview box to TV. Scanning by TotalMedia software was slow but 40-odd stations were found and stored. Good.
