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,...

As subject. When I press my Freeview red button the box changes to channel 301 and Score is on, after 2 seconds it disappears. I have tried changing channels manually to 301 with no joy. Any ideas? Baz

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...

LCD TV Backlight by daz
Hi I have a new TV. It's a Sony Bravia 40" W2000. About 2 weeks old. For me, CRT is much better than LCD, but I wanted a big TV that wasn't deep, so went with LCD. I am surpised at how good the picture is when it is showing an image, but when the screen goes blank, the backlight non-uniformity is very obvious and annoying. I have varied the backlight intensity,

Query about Humax PVR by John Hatpin
I've got this Humax PVR-9200T, thanks to your recommendations, and it's absolutely wonderful - I'm love it. Thanks. There is something I don't understand about it, though, and I can't find any explanation in the (otherwise excellent) manual: I tend to get into the habit of browsing through the guide and marking programmes I'm interested in for recording, usually a day or so ahead but sometimes...

wiring digital coaxial cable by mehall126
I have a freeview box and have attempted to wire digital coaxial cable from a wideband aerial to the connector which plugs into the box. I have isolated this from other components (DVD and video) so that I am only running the freeview box and TV but I still get an unpredicatable and sometimes poor signal through the freeview. I am sure the problem is with the wiring to the connector. I have...
