OT - Virgin Media Tivo by David[_13_]
Well, really probably on topic but not in line with most of the current posting ;-) Now the Virgin Media web site is so user aggressive (or I am so slow on the uptake) that I can't really work out what I can do with the Tivo and a home network. I have got as far as managing the Tivo from my Windows PC as long as I use Firefox and not Chrome (FFS why??). Not even a mention of IE.

BBC News today by Pinnerite[_2_]
Well, we now know about the eclipse. Thanks to the BBC News channel, we now know little about world news or indeed much else.They've lost it. Thankfully there are alternative channels and the web. Doesn't do much for the BBC's reputation though. -- Mageia 4 for x86_64, Kernel:3.14.32-desktop-1.mga4 KDE version 4.11.4 on an AMD Phenom II X4 Black edition.

OT BBC News web site by [email protected]
Does anyone like the new web site? It has great slabs of bright white screen. They hurt my eyes. Watching on a smartphone with an AMOLED screen, the white elements run down the battery.

Digital trophy? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Well, I do not watch sport much, and yet one thing bothered me yesterday. From what I could gather, the outcome of the Rugby rested on the points that the Irish and UK teams won their respective matches by, on the same day, so how would they cope with having to have a trophy in two different locations in case either won? do they actually have two trophies or what?

Lets have a quality limit on broadcasting. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
IE I think its only fair that minimum standards should be expected for all output which is not historic, ie old films and radio, and all stations which carry stereo content should be in stereo on all capable platforms with agreed minimum bit rates. If that were done there would be fewer naff radio stations on dab and tv and the vendors of the bandwidth would have to reprice them affordably. ...

Clarkson by jon_ty2015
The BBC has said a Top Gear Live event in Norway next week is "still scheduled to go ahead" with Jeremy Clarkson as its star. Despite postponing the three remaining episodes of this series of Top Gear, BBC Worldwide, the corporation's commercial arm, is still selling tickets for four live shows in Stavanger on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28. Insiders have said they are confident...

BBC Bias, Radio 4 by Another John
Typical! Radio 4 news headline at 0900 this morning was about how George Osborne is going to reduce taxes and 'ease austerity', accompanied by a big fat quote (Big Up!) from Kenneth Clarke on what a bloody good job "George" is doing in saving the country *so far* ("and-if-you-don't-vote-for-us-you're-doomed"). Not a whiff of balance on what other parties are saying. Typical bloody BBC...

BBC News Channel: censorship by omission? by Bill Wright[_2_]
This evening, when I saw the BBC News Channel's round up of tomorrow's press, I noticed that they did not show the front page of the Times. On past experience the omission of a particular newspaper's front page means that there was something on it the BBC deems unsuitable for us. I await the delivery of my Times in the morning, just to see if my suspicions are confirmed. Bill

JTAG-ing - Anyone able to advise? by Java Jive[_2_]
I have a QNAP NMP-1000, it's a network media player. It's no' bad, but for some time I've been trying to compile stuff on it to make improvements. Particularly, as I've already succeeded in doing on my Zyxel NSA221s, I wanted to get GetIPlayer going on it, and have succeeded in doing everything required except compiling FFMPEG, which eventually I successfully compiled a few months back on the...

No more Drones in royal parks by Brian Gaff[_2_]
It seems that the sec of state has proclaimed that people are now no longer allowed to fly those camera drones in the parks as it could be dangerous and scare the wildlife. I imagine these should be governed by the same laws as any model aircraft over a certain weight is, ie, it has to be flown in a designated area, and the person has to have public liability insurence in place as well as it...

Intelligent PVR programming? by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I have a Panasonic DMR-HWT130 PVR. SWMBO likes to watch "Neighbours" so it is set up to series record it at 1345 every day on Channel 5, which it has done without problem for a year. I happened to turn on the PVR around 1400 on Friday, to be met with a "New Channels Found" message, which I exited out of. I then noticed that it wasn't recording anything, which was confirmed with a quick look...
