Philips HD PVR by Michael Chare
Would one of these let you view and record the BBC terrestrial HD broadcasts from Crystal Palace? http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dit9719_05/dit9719_05_pss_eng.pdf (As used by the new BT Vision service) http://www.btvision.bt.com

sony dvd recorder not stopping problem by kevin bailey
Hi, Have generally been happy with the Sony DVD recorder RDR-HXD710 apart from the odd freeze and 20 minute shutdown. Recently however it will sometimes not stop recording at the end of a program. The recording keeps going until another recording starts or I press the rec stop button. Then in the title list the name of the program is not displayed - all I get is the program length.

Will this increase the TV price? by JustStand
An article in China Daily says that "Chinese TV makers set to establish united front" to safeguard their insterests because US is going to enforce about $30/set patent fee to them: "China's 13 top TV set makers are expected to form an industry alliance to handle standardization and intellectual property right issues as early as this month, as they strive to gain a bigger say in the global market...

Low gain masthead amplifiers by Bill Wright
It often happens that a masthead amplifier is needed, but one with very low gain. In the past we have had to use an amp with a gain figure of perhaps 16dB, with an attenuator at the distribution amplifier input. Now I have a religious conviction that unneccessary amplification is a BAD THING and a SIN, so this technique causes me great moral discomfiture. One night, as I lay abed writhing in...

Nokia 9850T - Deal or no Deal by [email protected]
Hi All, One of my cow-orkers has just bought a refurbished one of these from CPC for the princely (or do I mean pricey!) sum of 25.00. He can't get it to pull in any channels either at work (untested aerial) or at home (where his Daewoo/Setpal works). He's asked me to try it at my place (which at least is shown on the various sites as being able to get DTT).

When is a PVR not a PVR - Daewoo DSD9430 Set Top Box with Pay As You Go by [email protected]
Just spotted this on Amazon for about 40 They claim it has an 80Mb hard drive for approx 40 hours recording! A couple of other places think it's just a Freeview box with a TUTV slot. Any one know who's right?

"Freeview" channels by [email protected]
Hi All I have an ex-Sky box/dish, but do not receive all "freeview" channels. A couple of years ago, when BBC were going digital, it was possible to purchase a viewing card to extend choice, at a one time only charge. Is this card still available and where would you buy? Would it be worthwhile? Would I receive progs like "At the Races" and "4 More"? David.

Hauppauge Win TV-Nova-S-Plus PCI satllite card by Rob
Just aquired the above PCI card which enable free to air satellite viewing on a computer. Trouble is the application Win2000 (which I have used previously with terrestrial without problems) keeps crashing. I believe there is free software that can be used instead. Does anyone know the name of the software please or do you know why the Win2000 application keeps crashing?

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...
