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.

Sony KD-32DX51U TV Any Good? by mlv
I'm thinking of buying a Sony KD-32DX51U television (CTV), but would like to read a professional review first. Unfortunately I can't find one. I assume this is a 50Hz TV? How good (or bad) is it? How does the integral digital Freeview decoder compare with a standalone Sony VTX-D800U digital decoder?

Radio 4 on Freeview has started hissing by PGG
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 does appear to be a little louder than before, although I've not noticed the hiss.

What's the best freeview box? by Slitheen
I couldn't quite believe it, I spent half an hour checking the reviews of various Freeview boxes on Digital Spy and they all seem to be poor-average reviews....even the Sony ones in some cases. Basically, I want to upgrade from my Goodmans GDB3....and want to veer away from the sub 40 boxes like the Panasonics, Goodmans and Philips that I'm used to. I want a fast box (text services) with...

Top Up TV now appears to be evolving into a rip-off by Deep Thought
Am I alone in this dissatisfaction?.. I have to voice my disgust that as a long term TUTV customer they are now informing us all that they are removing some channels completely, also reducing the broadcast hours of the only movie channel (TCM) and the next-best channel (in my opinion) UKTVGold - WITHOUT any reduction in the existing fee... all this to make way for the new optional "Anytime"...

VisionDTV missing channels by Aleik
Hi, I'm set up with the aerial plugged into my processor, but I don't seem to have the option of BBC3, E4, More4, etc. (i.e. some good freeview channels) through my card. Is there a reason for this? Is there a site detailing all the relevant bandwidths and frequencies that I could just add to the channel list? Thanks,

RF2 Output on Sky by Geoff Lane
I've got an old Amstrad Sky digibox, if I use the RF2 output on the Sky box to feed a loft distribution system will my distributed RF signals also feed a freeview box. At the moment I'm using a proception distribution system with good effect but I'm thinking of using the dual mode proception unit ( http://tinyurl.com/yysnbx ) with the Digibox's RF2 output to feed the system. I appreciate this...
