Digihome PVR160 in Argos by Mike Dyer
Well I've owned it 5 days now. The only niggle is the 7 day epg only ever seems to have the next three days in it. Though you can program it like a video recorder, so it's not the end of the world. It timer records on standby as well, so doesn't take over the telly (ref earlier posts)

[?] Start-up fault on Panasonic TX32DTX40 (Euro9D chassis) by David Chapman
Hi, Does anyone have any experience of any stock faults relating to the Panasonic TX32DTX40 television (EURO9D) that they'd care to share? I'm particularly interested in any power-supply related faults which would explain a problem on switch-on where the TV attempts to start up and then almost immediately shuts down again. I do have the full Service Manual to hand.

Sony SVR-S500 and how to break it within two hours of buying it.... by [email protected]
Confession time.. I purchased one of the above at the weekend, took it home, set it up and all was lovely. Being a bloke, I then decided to wander through the menu options....with not so fantasic results. Basically, I've changed command mode from HDD1 to HDD2 and now the remote doesn't work. The manual basically says "Don't do it!!" Any ideas on how I reset this back to the factory standard?

Some channels break up on Sky - dish out of position? by h
As per the subject - on our Sky box, ITV3 and a few other channels intermittently show "Satellite signal not being received". Majority of channels never show this problem. Could this be down to our dish being out of alignment? Quite happy to pop up a ladder with my little squeally-meter-box thing, just not sure why only some channels are affected; are satellite channels grouped together...

Digital transmitter power by Ben
I've just been looking at Arqiva's contract to supply the new 'high power' digital transmitters post analogue switchoff and was amazed to discover that my home town (population 5,000) and surrounding area is to be served by a transmitter power of less than 2 watts!!! http://www.arqiva.com/upload/pdf/PROVISION_OF_NETWORK_ACCESS.pdf Fair enough its into an 11dB antenna, giving 24W ERP, which is...

Channel 29 Problem by Geoff Lane
My daughter lives in Hemel Hempstead (HP1 2TE), her aerial points at Crystal Palace. I fiited a Proception proMHD14V - four-way amplifier in the loft serving two feeds. My BT I-Player+ box shows good quality signal on all channels however, viewing Film4 on Saturday I started to get regular pixelation, on checking the diagnostic channel menu it showed quality varying between 80% and down to 50%.

double outlets by Bill Wright
I *think* I'm worrying about nothing? But before I hook it all up I'd just like to be sure I'm not risking damaging anything... Well it wouldn't cross my mind to worry about that. If any equipment is putting significant voltage at more than a few mA on the coax then it wants sorting anyway.

Double coaxial socket for cable / terrestial TV? by Lobster
Daughter has a terrestrial TV aerial outlet in her bedroom, fed from a mast amplifier. During a refurb of her room I've taken the opportunity to run a second cable to her room, fed from a spare output of an existing distribution system which is hooked up to the cable TV box in the living room - this is a very Heath-Robinson affair, which transfers a just-about-tolerable version of whatever...

Freeview via Satellite by victormeldrewsyoungerbrother
I am considering cancelling my Sky subscription as, quite honestly, I'm becomming more and more disenchanted with the rubbish on offer. I'm not interested in sport, I watch a film once in a blue moon, and it would be cheaper to buy those I do want to see on DVD, and the rest of the channels are, IMHO, by and large just repeated tat. What I want to know is, if I cancel, will the satellite box...

My off topic 'tripping' problem by Marky P
Hi, Thanks for all the replys even though I was way off topic. Anyway, I've discovered it is the washing machine at fault (it tripped the MCB without the telly on). It doesn't trip straight away, seems to be when the water starts to heat up, so could be a duff element. Bugger :-(. It was second hand anyway (lasted 8 months). Marky P.

What to look for in a PVR by tim\(yet another new home\)
I'm new to this digital TV stuff, but my VCR has stopped working so I need to consider a PVR. I want a disk based one, I have no need for DRD recording as all I do is timeshift. So what sort of features should I expect/consider? I'd like to be able to record two programs at once and I need to be able to set up to record 2-3 or even 4 weeks hence.

Group A aerial advice for Palace with a problem on Ch22 by [email protected]
Hi All, Wrote on this NG a while back re problem i am having with Ch21/22 (pixellation) on either Palace or Reigate. My installer originally used a WB aerial, replaced this with DAT 45 (another WB) to no avail. Followed the advice here to go Group A, which makes great sense for Ch22. He's installed a Unix 52 Group A.
