OT magnetron service life by Johny B Good[_2_]
We recently purchased a new microwave oven from Sainsburys to replace our 20 years plus old Toshiba ER-7700E which had developed an intermittent display fault (requiring a slap on its side to resurrect the display, implying a bad connector contact or dry joint). Out of curiousity, I'd already googled for info on the durability of microwave ovens and noted an oft quoted figure of 2,000 hours for...

EU Directive on TV ECO mode? by Dickie mint[_2_]
In a forum for the over 50's this was posted today: "Yes another EU directive for new tv,s is they must have an ECO setting this is normally turned on by default to reduce power consumption but if you want the best picture quality then you must turn it off. If you have purchased a new tv in the last couple of years and have not turned it off then do so" Can't immediately find a...

Finding odd channels by Brian Gaff[_2_]
on Freeview above the 800 area so to speak. I seem to have varying numbers of these which usually claim to be the same names as existing ones, apart foom test but none of them have any content, yet are found on a retune. Are they getting lax or is this justanother weirdness of my older box I wonder. Also, sometimes the main tuning misses whole multiplexes altogether as if they were...

Normal HD TV set or 3D or even 4K? by David[_9_]
When purchasing a new TV maybe today my questions to those of you that have 3D and/or 4K sets are. When watching normal HD and SD TV do either produce better picture results? When looking at Samsung which have satellite input which I must have I see prices for 46 inch to 55 inch are in the area of £700 to £1100 which to me is little more for 3D and/or 4K over a good brand TV set. Samsung...

On 28.2/28.5 E are there any 3D or 4K transmissions that are free viewable, not bothered if in English or not, if so can you give me frequency and polarization please? I did read somewhere that Astra do test transmissions. Regards David

Artificial living people? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I listened to a station on short wave the other day. Cannot remember where from, but the gist of it was that computing power is now enough to create avatars of dead people where film or tapes exist of their visual and audio selves, in such a way that they can be made to do things and say things they never said when they were alive. Of course I don't know how good this , and presumably its...

Bracket in Roof Tiles by Geoff Lane
Just seen an aerial attached to a bracket fixed to roof tiles. It does appear quite solid BUT any hole in a roof tile must be a weak point for water ingress plus it must make the tiles more vulnerable in high wind. Having said that there is no chimney plus the slope of the roof would make the aerial very low if fitted to the wall. Geoff Lane

Artefacts in dark picture areas by Vir Campestris
I've just been watching Skyfall, and noticed solarisation in some dark areas. I've seen this before too. I also notice that when the Beeb are showing Top of the Pops 1979 there's a problem with Afro haircuts - they tend to lag when their owner dances, as if the codec has decided detail in something so dark isn't important, so they don't need to be updated as often. Is it just me (my set) or...

BBC Have Broken GetIPlayer by Java Jive[_2_]
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/get_iplayer/2014-October/006240.html quote The BBC have removed the programme data feeds used by get_iplayer, so search and PVR functions no longer work. There is no programme information to cache, and it was the cache that supported search and PVR functions. There is no fix available at this time. You can still download individual programmes via PID or...

It set me...

4K by Geoff Pearson
Anyone bought a 4K TV? What do you watch on it - what sources are there? I guess even Blu-ray is sub 4k definition.

4G comes to town by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Just been doing some UHF scans to check which muxes to use for HDTV recordings over the next week or two. Looks like 4G has now come to town! http://jcgl.orpheusweb.co.uk/temp/HFR.png In the last week or two I've had the impression that reception is affected occasionally. So I'll experiment with some filters when I get a chance. Now have an 'official' ch60 filter as well as some ones from CPC...
