who would be right? by Paul Heslop
in an article in private Eye an issue or two ago it mentioned a 'special' offer on Sky subscriptions for folks living in the shadow of a stadium, possibly new Wembley or Arsenal's as it has been found that houses nearby can't get a signal for normal tv.

Freeview reception problem - new re-align aerial or replace? by BillL
Hello all, Just bought the cheapest Digifusion freeview box (25 from Currys Digital) but although some channels are perfect BBC1/2 BBC3/4 etc I cannot get Ch 4 or Ch 5 and several other channels.

Digital breakup recently in Guildford by David Hearn
I've been getting lots of pops and breakup on my Humax PVR9200T and also my Pioneer DBR-TF100. They're both fed from the same aerial and downlead. We're in Guildford with aerial pointing in the southern direction - so I'm guessing I'm off the local transmitter on the A31/Hogs Back which is just a few miles away. In general the Humax shows strength is about 75%, 100% quality, but sometimes...

Upgrading hard drive on a PVR. by Qatar Airlines Passanger
Can you do this? In the same way as you would on a computer? I was thinking if I wanted to hive off some recordings to DVD thatI could put the hard drive in my computer and burn usingmy DVDRV drive on the computer. Is that a reasonable thing to be able to do?

Advice needed - please!!! by teapot
I have recently been given as a present a Sony RDR HXD560 DVD recorder with a built in freeview tuner. The problem is that I am in a freeview blind spot and consequently cant seem to receive any signal, either analogue or digital into the dvd. Can anybody suggest a way that I can bypass the freeview tuner so that I can at least use the dvd recorder - or do I have to put the thing in the attic...

After what seems like years of reading about Blu-ray, I finally saw a real life Blu-ray player for sale today in John Lewis - I was actually in there looking for new pillows, but you know what its like ;-) They had three HD demos running; Blu-ray, DVD (presumably DivX), and BBC HD Preview. The Blu-ray demo was absolutely gorgeous, the DVD demo was good, but the BBC HD preview was ****e! It...

Microsoft ClearType and HDTV standards interpolation by Agamemnon
Yesterday night I installed Internet Explorer 7 and when I ran it it went to a setup screen which had ClearType set as default so I wondered why that was when I was using a CRT monitor and I thought ClearType was only supposed to work on LCD screens using a digital link or laptops. Anyway I went along with it and fine-tuned it to work on my monitor, since Microsoft said it could imporove the...

Is there a decent HD/DVD Recorder with Freeview, ethernet connection to PC, pref non-proprietary HD Format? by Java Jive
I'm reappraising the (too much) AV kit I have here, and am realising that I have begun to use the Panasonic HD/DVD Recorder almost exclusively for CCTV. This may seem strange for (at the time of purchase) such an expensive piece of kit, but there are a number of problems in using it for other purposes. 1) It has a non-standard HD format, so you can't backup what's on the HD except via the...

My mum has a warfedale T1403 14" portable TV. It was recently given to her by a friend of hers but no instruction booklet came with it. It needs retuning and having pressed just about every button on the remote control I cant get it into the tuning screen. A Google didn't throw up any help so does anyone on here know what the sequence is to get it into tuning mode. Or can you point me to a...
