How to install an aerial by Bill Wright
1. Install the aerial using Emley Moor transmitter. 2. Observe that reception from the Philips DTT box is snowy, with a hiss on the sound. 3. Observe that reception from the DVD player is also snowy, with a hiss on the sound. 4. Eliminate the two-way manual scart switch from the installation, with no improvement. 5. Connect the DTT box into the analyser AV input, observe good reception. 6....

What is my Humax Updating? by Davy
Every few weeks when I switch on my Humax 8000 I see a screen which informs me that the 'loader' is updating and then that a game is being updated. The menu of my Humax shows me that the software has not been updated for two years; and the user manual has no mention of games. So what exactly is being updated? thanks, Davy

DAB abroad? by Ronny
I just discovered that there is more than one way of transmitting DAB radio depending on what country you are in. Does that mean that a DAB radio bought in this country will not work in other countries? (I know you can't receive programmes broadcast OUTSIDE of the country you are in, but I mean can you not pick up local stations either?) Sorry if this is an "old chestnut" and there is an...

Overselling Accessories? by tim.....
Was in one of those electrical stores that everyone loves to hate, looking at the flat TV's today. Was listening in on the sales pitch that the young assistant was giving to the (even more) clueless couple buying a TV. After they had decided on their TV, she took them to a stand of surge protectors and proceeds to give a spiel about how, as the area is prone to power cuts (true) and that...

Sony KD-32DX100U Digital Television by mlv
I've recently purchased a rather nice Sony KD-32DX100U that is about 4-years-old. Unfortunately the integral digital decoder will only accept and store 2-digit digital channels. It only seems to offer channels 1 to 99. The BBC channels 300, 301, 302, etc. are missing, as are the radio channels, which are all in the 700s. The television is currently running software version r1.03. Back in...

Splitting a .mpg recording into two by Slitheen
Maybe not technically on topic for this forum, but I guess many folk here that are more than familiar with VideoRedoPlus and the editing of their recordings. Basically, I bought VideoRedoPlus a few months ago, and have only now just got round to doing all the ad deletion work I've wanted to do for ages. I am now quite fluent in streamfixing and then marking the ad breaks to be cut away,...

Legal TV by norm
While I'm moaning; Legal TV. Quite interesting. Loads of old episodes of Crown Court which I used to love. BUT....Why is the aspect ratio wrong on every single program? Crown Court was obviously 4:3 but doesn't fill the width of the screen. The actors look like they've had dysnentry for the last three months. Dipping in and out of the channel, every single program is screwed one way or another.

TV lotteries by /\\BratMan/\\
From: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6190674.stm TV quiz shows which can charge viewers as much as 75p for phone calls even if they do not get through are a "lottery" not a test of skill, MPs have heard. The Commons culture committee was told some channels lured players with easy questions and big prizes, without stating only 0.5% of calls get through. Nick Rust, of Sky Bet, which is...

USB DVB-T with NTSC input? by Cuzman
OK, here's the conundrum: My friend has an NTSC Playstation2 which happily worked on his plasma screen at home via composite due to the TV automatically handling the NTSC signal. He is now at university, left his Playstation2 at home, but will be picking it up at Christmas when he goes home. He only has a laptop at university. No TV. Is there any product around that will convert the...
