Good news perhaps - Quiz Call to go from Freeview, to be replaced by something "outside the call-TV market" by Adrian B
Channel 4 to sell off, sell out Quiz Call Channel 4 is to sell off Ostrich Media, it's subsidiary responsible for producing Quiz Call. According to Broadcast, the deal does not include the channel's Freeview slot, and Channel 4 will be using the space to launch a new service "outside the call-TV market" From http://members.lycos.co.uk/deeteetee/

Angus TX changes? by Jim Lesurf
A couple of days ago I checked the MUX power levels reported by my Nokia 221T DTTV RX. These seem to have dropped in an odd pattern. I have spent some time during the last couple of days checking my antenna, cables, etc. So far as I can tell, they are fine. The details are as follows: Mux Ch Prev Now Change C 56 -60 -74 -14 A 59 -58 -58 0

What shall I charge? by Bill Wright
The resident of a sheltered housing scheme complained about the TV reception. The scheme is in a town a long way from here; most of that association's properties being much closer. I went out there today. There was nothing wrong with the TV distribution system. The tenant had a cable TV connection which allowed them to view but not to record and didn't allow reception in the bedroom. They...

Radio 4 on Freeview has started hissing by Dave Plowman (News)
In article , Edster wrote: Radio 4 on Freeview has started hissing, it's quite distinctive during pauses or prolonged silences. If I convert it to wav and open it in Cool Edit, the overall volume is also much louder than it used to be (the waveform is larger). It fills about 60% of the screen rather than the 30-40% it was until...

Intro music of the 2 pints 'Dirty Girls' episode (both BBC3 early moring broadcasts by Johnny B Good
Hi, did anyone else notice a very peculiar effect on the intro music as per the title? I can't make my mind up as to whether it was purely down to a glitch in the digital recording just before the start of the music (it was present on both repeats - they've been repeats for a v e r y l o n g time :-), or a deliberate messing up of the theme tune/song. -- Regards, John. Please remove the...

DAB sounds pretty good by Scott
For late night listening, I have taken to listening to 'Late Junction' on Radio 3. To my surprise it is not classical but consists of world music, most of which is quite unusual and some of which is quite interesting and relaxing . It is broadcast at 192 kbps, which provides a clarity and stereo effect not usually heard on my DAB radio. Scott

Freeview: Hannington or Crystal Palace by Jerry L
A couple of years ago I put a DAT75 in the loft with a freeview box as a backup in case our NTL digibox broke. Needless to say, as I installed a backup, the NTL box worked fine and over time I gave away the freeview box and did not use the DAT75. The NTL digibox has finally broken (nice brown smartcard), and NTL will not come around until next Tuesday. When I installed the DAT75 2 years ago...

Why no PDC? by Staiger
Does anyone know why there is no PDC-equivalent on DTTV? One would think the designers of the standard must have been well aware of the PDC facility on analogue broadcasts. Did they deliberately leave it out? Or have the broadcasters simply not implemented it? In either case, why? Thack

Freesat/freeview recording by Jill Clarkson

HDD Media Players by Jane T
Seen this hard drive media player from Maplins http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=99078&TabID=1&source=1&doy=19m10 Does anyone have any experience with these HDD media players. Do they work 100%, what is the quality of the audio and vision, is the fan noisy. Can anyone recommend anything better. I like the idea being able to move it easily between TV's/Hi-Fi. Ideally I would...

NTL strangeness! by Brian Wescombe
Two weeks ago, I got the NTL free TV pack, which is basically the Freeview channels plus Sky One. Until the weekend I was getting National Geographic as well, which I didn't complain about! Now that's not available, but I'm getting the kids' channels instead (Nick Toons etc). Perhaps I've got some weird random package!

BBC Trust - no idea engineering experience whatsoever by DAB sounds worse than FM
The members of the new BBC Trust have been announced, and there is not a single person with ANY knowledge of engineering / technical issues on it whatsoever. The BBC Governors did have a communications engineering professor on it, although a fat lot of good he did in stopping the BBC adopting the ridiculously out-of-date DAB system. Also, the BBC is actually unregulated with respect to...
