(Maybe OT) VGA to HDMI Cable by Robert Berry
Hi All, I'm sure you'll be the chaps who will know this. My new HD LCD had an HDMI socket but no VGA. I'd like to rig my laptop to it, which only has a VGA socket. Is such a lead available and if so where from and how much? Kind Regards and thanks for the advice that's been offered to others which I've 'borrowed' in the past. Rob ;-)

Aerial installer in Newport? by Matti Lamprhey
I live in Newport (the city) and get my DTT channels from Mendip. Signal strength is good but I suffer from sporadic break-up which I assume is caused by impulsive interference. Typically this will happen very irregularly with an MTBF of 20 minutes and an MTTR of a second. The aerial was replaced with DTT in mind in late 2002 approx. I'd like to get a local expert in to see if things can be...

Humax 9200T autopadding by Jeff Layman
Just got a 9200T (software version 08) that doesn't appear to be autopadding. Is there a preference in the setup somewhere to enable/disable this that I haven't spotted? -- Jeff (cut "thetape" to reply)

look North Ex-pat list by Dave Fawthrop
Paultheweatherman on Look North has started a list of those watching Look North in non English locations. He naturally has some in Southern France and Spain, receiving Astra2D on huge dishes. Now am waiting for someone high up in the BBC to complain that ex-pats are not supposed to be watching and are infringing the BEEB's copyright or something. -- Dave Fawthrop dave hyphenologist co uk...

Has anyone got a Slingbox? by JPG
Seeing quite a few of these about for about 180 - has anyone used one? How do they control a PVR, such as the Humax 9200t or Sky+. They are supposed to adjust bitrates on the the fly so that you always get the best picture for the conditions - virtually full bitrate for home networking, allowing you to watch TV on your laptop in the bedroom, for example; and bitrate reducing when on the...

Sky Sports on Freeview ? by Keith
Hello I'm aware that there was some discussion earlier in the year, about Sky Sports possibly being made available through Top Up TV, to Freeview. I really don't want to have to subscribe to Sky, as all I want are the sport channels.....does anyone know if this is going to happen? If so, when? I've had a look at the Freeview site, but there is nothing regarding

I'm aerial installing this Saturday :-) by Marky P
I'm installing an aerial for my best mate this weekend. He's recently moved into a flat above a night club & the loft aerial is ok, but there's interference from passing motorbikes, so I'm sticking it on the roof. Ideal working conditions, nice flat roof to stick a step ladder on, should get me high enough. Got a proper 9x9 bracket and anchor bolts. There is an aerial outside at the mo, but...

Poor aerial distribution system in new flat by Marky P
My ex sister in law recently moved into a new flat in Rushden, Northants. I had a look at the property & there was a reasonable aerial system installed on the roof. Anyway, she needed me to connect her telly & freeview box up, so I did. Analogue reception was marred by what looked like co-channel interference (diagnal lines) on two channels. Freeview seems ok though. Also, there is another...

Unique problem - Can you solve it! by -
This is a job I went to recently which proved a bit difficult. I've solved the problem now (pretty sure I have anyway) but wondered if there was another way for future reference. Basically, this house is big. Got to be around 3 million or maybe more. A brace of maids and cleaners / cooks were busy keeping the place tidy and delivering crisp white towels to the inside swimming pool. Cables...

ITV & Channel 4 missing on digital tv by Nildram news
Hi all, I'm in Harrow, more or less half way between Cristal Palace & Hemel Hempstead but whichever way I'm pointing the aerial and do a rescan, I can't seem to get the ITV channels or Channel 4. I am getting all the other channels and the signal is (according to the freeview box) decent (although a bit better towards Hemel Hempstead). Am I missing something ? Bernard

What's a cheap/easy way to get freeview in N3 1RD (Dollis Rd) by [email protected]
Is there an easy way to get freeview working in N3 1RD? I checked on wolfbane: http://www.wolfbane.com/cgi-bin/tvd.exe?DX=L&HT=10&OS=n3+1rd It says that...

Basically I'm 14 miles from Crystal Palace where the transmitter is and, about 2/3rds of the way down a hill, so being near the...

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.
