Freeview with PVR and DVD Recorder by Mikey_Jax
Hi there We're seriously thinking of cancelling our Sky+ subscription because what Freeview offers will cover the TV we watch - so might as well put the subscription towards something else. What we do like about Sky+ is the PVR side of things - but have also been thinking about getting a DVD recorder at some point. I have seen that there are some boxes with all 3 built-in...so...

Pausing recordings for adverts by Slitheen
Currently and for the last couple of years, as my first partial step away from VHS, I just use a digital TV card in my computer for recording digital TV. This won't allow me to pause recordings for ad breaks, which annoys the hell out of me - something to do with it causing problems and breaks in the stream I'm told. I'm just wondering if this is because it is a very basic system. Do HDD...

Digihome PVR probs by BORG
Mine seems to have not altered the time when the clocks changed. Everything I set to record hasn't. How do I get it to change timer I can't see anywhere to do it from going through the menu system. Thanks -- www.ratrodz.co.uk

filtering out screaming audience sound track? by Norm
I have been trying to watch ITV x factor and am finding it impossible because of the pre-recorded screaming audience sound effects. It's on a 10 second loop at the moment and whoever is doing the audio mixing is crap. He is deliberately making some tracks sound worse than others.

Humax 9200T IR Sensor Location by Ticklemynuts
Can anyone describe to me the precise location of the IR sensor on the front of the Humax 9200T box? I'd like to attach my Thompson VS360 Video Sender. Cheers.

Humax problem - any ideas by Scott
I have a Humax 9200. I set it up to record two programmes at 7 pm last night. It failed to record either of these. At the time I was watching the Iraq debate on the Parliament channel (and any comments on this should be directed to a separate thread). I have noticed in the past that there are sometimes curious effects when the Parliament channel is in operation. Would this be likely to cause...

ntl by Gregory Kirby
HI all, Nothing going on in the ntl forum so I thought I would try here. With the new TV hitting the stores with all sorts of goodies, is there anyone out there catering for a cable only environment. I do not have an aerial and got rid of the last one as it got too big trying to cope with Canary Wharf. Looking for a 32 inch flat screen, which needs only be a monitor to teh

BBC Channels? by [email protected]
Evening All, Girlfriend has just moved and after installing her Freeview box (Goodmans GDB6), BBC 1,2,3 and News 24 were a tad intermittent. Stupidly decided to do a new scan and now they've disappeared. Box was previously installed at her flat which had a very good communal aerial and signal was no problem. I assume that the aerial at her new house is sub-standard and needs looking at?

Rigger's Diary -- comprehension by Bill Wright
"Is that Mr Wright?" "Yes, who's that?" "Well I live at Selby Place, at Number 32, next to the lift, and my television isn't right." "Oh dear, what's the problem then?" "Your firm did the aerial didn't you, the one for everybody, that does all the flats?" "Yes, that's right, last year." "Well it doesn't work right, I mean I've got a brand new TV here and it says no

See, I *told* you these analogue old timers don't "get" digital!!! by Ben
Article in the latest EBU Technical Review http://www.ebu.ch/en/technical/trev/trev_home.html This guy thinks that concealment (an analogue technique where if a line cannot be read from videotape it is simply replaced by the contents of the previous line) is such a good idea that it should be applied to digital formats too, by recording one line per block on the hard drive, so if a bad block...

Seeking MPEG-2 Encoder with Compression by Matti Lamprhey
I'd like to be able to produce compressed MPG files from DVDs recorded on my LiteOn recorder. Are any PC tools available to do this? Background: I have a Humax PVR9200-T as well as the LiteOn. If I record the same 1-hour programme from ITV3 on each, using the LiteOn's HQ quality setting so that the two recordings are of similar quality, and then transfer both to my PC (using Media eLinker...

what aerial by Jackie
Hi I live about 35kms from the Angus transmitter and at present get a grainy but watchable analogue picture. I have bought a digital tuner for my computer and I get reasonable reception on most channels but feel that a new bigger aerial would be better as I think that water may have got into the cable as when I measure the resistance it is almost a direct short. Old analogue meter so cannot...

Anyone tried Evesham PVR 160? by Steve
Does anyone have any experience with using the Evesham PVR 160 or know of any good reviews? It is a dual tuner Freeview unit with a 160 Gb HD on offer at Woolies for 149 so seems like a good buy. One worry would be as it is a relatively unknown manufacturer, would it be updated on air regularily? I have a Freeview set top box which has never received an on air upgrade when my other unit has...

Monitor for TV by Geoff Lane
I'm currently using a video sender unit for TV reception in an area of my home where running a TV aerial would be difficult. I would like to purchase an LCD screen for this room but the screens with TV tuners are considerably more expensive than computer monitors. As with my present set up I am not using a TV tuner I'd like to consider just a computer monitor but the input is different. Anyone...

News multiscreen query by Nildram news
Just intrigued really... When I exit BBC News Multiscreen where we get the bewildering choice of two "streams" (sorry, don't know the technical term !), for a fraction of a second, there is a third stream showing on the right hand of the screen showing BBC Parliament (I think !). Why is that and is the number of "streams" restricted due to limitations of the digital terrestrial system or...

More Labour stupidity.... by Gendy
From "Energy Saving Trust" via the BBC: "TVs: On average a traditional cathode ray tube (CRT) television set uses 100 watts of power when in use and about two watts on standby. Analysis: Why UK 'must try harder' Newer LCD and plasma screens are higher users of energy, with the largest models consuming up to 400 watts when in use and about four watts on standby. "
