Sony VTX-D800U update fails to fix bugs by Agamemnon
Yesterday when I changed over to BBC4 first thing in the evening instead of getting a clear image the same old BBC text page was overlaid over the screen blotting out the picture. The is despite the fact that my STB is running the new firmware update. If I had not changed to BBC4 early on then my timer recording of The Wide Sargasso Sea would have been of a blank screen. If The Wide Sargasso...

TOT but I have to tell you by Bill Wright
This is so ridiculous that you're going to think I'm making it up, but I swear I'm not. A lad turned up here this afternoon to deliver a parcel. He had obviously deduced that we have something to do with aerials, and he asked me rather slyly if I knew anything about 'radio aerials'. Because of his extremely Rastafarian appearance and Yorkshire-Jamaican speech I wondered if he was into pirate...

Will a US HDTV work in the UK? by [email protected]
I have a LCD HDTV, which supports 1080i 720p (but this is 60hz format) 1. Will this work in the UK - with Freeview? 2. Will this work in the UK - with Sky Digital or Telewest? The main concern I have is with the TV supporting 60hz (as opposed to 50Hz for UK ) Full specs: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-BRAVIA-KLVS32A10-HD-Ready-Television/dp/B000A2K40Y

Help with Cinergy XS USB TV and Mac OS-X by Steve
I was told by Terratec support that their Cinergy range are PC and Mac compatible. However, when receiving the box, all the software is PC. There is also little mention of how to actually install it! Does anyone know what I've got to do to get this working on my Mac? (OS X) Thanks, Steve :)

Sony DTTV recorder by Jim Lesurf
I'm posting this partly to inform anyone who might be interested, and also to see if others have a similar experience... I've used a Philips DVDR for the last 2-3 years. This has RGB scart input as well as output, so I have used it to record DTTV broadcasts with my Nokia 221T box. When it works properly, the recorder gives good results. However it sometimes makes a mess of a recording, and also...

What is PQ? by Slitheen
I'm researching a cheapish but decent HDTV I have my eyes on, and reading several reviews, they say the "PQ is very good"....what exactly is PQ? (Usually said when discussing the use of an Xbox 360 with it) Thanks for helping out a poor, helpless noobie. :)

Leeds Piano festival, BBC Four by [email protected]
A (late) reminder that you can hear yet more classical music from the BBC, at 256kbps mp2 (i.e. good quality) on BBC Four throughout this week and weekend. 7pm ish (the exact time varies) each day, including Sunday. Leeds Piano festival. I believe that pictures are also provided, alongside the good quality audio. The wonders of technology!

Poor DVD Picture by Geoff Lane
I've got a loft distribution system feeding 3 TVs. My main TV is a Philips 24inch CRT and has a Sky dish connection. For some reason my Philips DVD player gives a poor picture when played through this TV, there is a heringbone effect on the screen and I cannot seem to rectify it. The Sky box and a video player both give an excellent picture and the DVD player, when played through another TV...

DVB-T Hard Disk / DVD-R recorder for 219.99 by Adrian B
http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=97186&TabID=1&source=1&doy=4m9 Only a single tuner, but for the mythical PVR with DVD-R, that sounds like a bargain. It's a "Yamada" - Does anyone have any experience of their stuff? Is this likely to be a crash-a-minute job ? Adrian B

Wiring TV to Home Cinema by scamper
I've got a Philips 9631 with 2 HDMI connections and I've just bought a Philips Home Theatre System with HDMI output. I've connected the theatre system to the TV via HDMI and it plays DVDs great. The question I have is how to get sound from the TV or Sky to come out of the home theatre system. The manual that came with the theatre system seems to say that by selecting TV on the remote control...

Latest TVs Pose Recycling Problem by galaxyguy
For someone just about the spend a huge sum on a new Plasma TV I thought they might be interested to know of future problems one day way off in the distant future. I noticed at our local Council Recycling Tip, which is vast and well organised that they have a large open bin for used CRT PC Monitors and also for CRT TVs. Sadly, there was a beautiful large Sony sitting in the bottom of the...

No picture on Freeview - just the "press red" image in the corner by Ade
I've got a few Freeview devices, including a Humax 9200T PVR and a Humax LGB26T-PVR television. The latter has recently developed a problem: On Cbeebies, there's no picture, just sound and a "press red" thingy. If I press teh "info" button, the picture appears but the programme information remains on the screen. Anyone else found this problem recently (all was fine until the last few days)? Any...
