Another unusual shaped aerial by Graham
http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/infoweb/mystery.jpg Actually I suspect it might not be an aerial at all but I want to see what you guys make of it first. The picture isn't very clear, I only had my phone camera. Its the green thing to the right of the dishes. It appears to be a copper mesh twisted into a very distinctive spiral shape The bracket looks like a traditional shelf bracket.

Please help me start by John Hatpin
I've recently moved into a new flat, and after years of analogue TV, with no experience of digital TV, I'm planning to buy stuff and get going. But I'm starting with zero knowledge or experience, beyond the "plug the co-ax into the video, run a co-ax from the video to the TV, run a SCART from the DVD to the TV" sort of level. Please help me! I'm marooned in technology and terms I...

Will DAT 75 get to the bottom of poor reception on ITV/C4...? by [email protected]

Got great reception on BBC but pixellation and spluttering on ITV/C4 (on Reigate or Crystal Palace). Have Wolsey 6-way amplifier in loft, BUT before you ask, all the following problems are neither improved nor appreciably worsened if i connect UHF downlead DIRECT to a TV...

Toshiba WLT66 32" or Sony V2000 32" LCD? by [email protected]
What Hifi states that the Sony V2000 is the best 32" LCD, and Toshiba WLT66 the second best. However, the Sony costs some 1,100 and the Toshy only 720. Does anyone know if it's worth paying 380 extra for a screen with a Sony badge and one less HDMI input?

The Globe is back, sort of by Agamemnon
And good riddance to those horrid dances. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-2377125,00.html Don't like the shade of blue though. The old computerised blue and gold see-through globe from the 80's and the smoky globe from the 90's were by far the best.

Toshiba DLP 50HMX96 by roohbir
I have bought a Toshiba DLP TV. It advertises as 'Integrated HDTV'. Does that mean that I don't require a separate set-top box for viewing HDTV signal (ie when I subscribe to one)? Roohbir

Interference on DTV by [email protected]
I have recently installed DTV in my home and I'm get a lot of interference from mobile phones in the house especially when they are being used. I have upgraded the aerial and fitted double-screened coax. The LCD i have has a built-in digital tuner. I can't be sure where the interference is getting into the network (The aerial, amplifier or cabling). Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

attempts to reduce ghosting by Bill Wright
I looked at a new aerial today in which the installer had tried to reduce the ghosting. Between the aerial and the transmitter was a large building. The installer had carefully posiitoned the aerial in the one place where the lift motor room screened it to the rear. This was totally ineffective. It appeared that the reflected signals were a 'double bounce', coming in from the facing wall of...

Looking for a freeview digibox, but I want one for a TV that does not have a scart socket, but will go into a bog-standard Ariel socket. I don't want to have a scart modulator. Does such an animal exist? Graham

ITV4 by John Porcella
What is wrong with ITV4? I have tried before to record ECL football, and when broadcast on this channel, the tape recording has contrast/brilliance that bounces up and down throughout. No trouble like this on ITV1. I use a Philips DTT decoder of On-Digital/ITV Digital days, SCARTed to a VCR.
