Nebula DigiTV missing channels by Steven
Sent this e-mail to Nebula earlier but wondered if anyone else has any suggestions in the meantime? "I appear to have lost a number of channels from my DigiTV and cannot get them back, however hard I try :-( The story goes like this. I'd set DigiTV (3.03) to record a programme on ITV1 last night and when it started recording the screen was blank. I thought this was because it was in silent...

WinTV Nova-t PCI card woes by Li'l ol' me
Hi, I'm new to this group so I'm sorry if I'm repeating something that's in an FAQ or just comes up EVERY DAY! Anyway, just bought Nova-t PCI card from THAT company (I dare not spell its name!). Couldn't install the latest drivers/software (installation freezes on my XP installation) so I'm slumming it with the ones from the cd (v1.46). To cut to the chase, the software can find several...

Difference Between RF Plugs by Sebby
I'm going to make myself a bit of cable for use with my Pace DTR210T receiver using FT100 satellite cable. But I'm not sure about which RF plugs to use (I'm sure it probably makes no difference whatsoever). Could someone tell me, though, what the difference between these two products is: http://www.maplin.co.uk/products/module.asp?modulelist=1606,1619. Many thanks in advance.

Aerial Issues by Bill
It should be written with a capital letter, so by not putting one there is a mis-spelling in by book. You write all the typos you see on Usenet down in a book? There's obsessive. A psychotherapist I know says that it's due to bad toilet training. Bill

DAB Drivers for DVB Cards by matt cook
Most (if not all) DVB cards use software decoding. All it would take for a DVB card to decode DAB is a suitable tuner, and the right drivers. Despite the tuner dificulties in the UK market, are there are any DAB drivers anywhere for DVB cards?

Rigger's Diary - highly amusing joke by Bill
I was in Nottingham yesterday carrying out the mundane tasks that are the lot of the lowly aerial rigger. My mind started to wonder and I devised the following joke, which I'm sure you'll all agree is a masterpiece of the comedic art. Two members of a primeval species were wallowing in a swamp. The first said "I stuck my head out of the water the last week, just for a moment. Then yesterday I...

Technical info request - please help by teepee
I'm working on a study of live TV for a university course I'm doing and I'm trying to work out what the delays are on different transmission systems. I know that the gap between the studio and the TV set is virtually infinitesimal for analogue terrestrial, but seem to be about a second or so for satellite judging from what happens when I switch channels between my TV aerial and my dish. Can...

Maplin UHF Modulator by G8XLH
Hi All, Yesterday I was in my local maplins store, and saw that they had a UHF modulator for sale at 19. (Mains powerd- Scart & Phono Inputs for video/audio). I decided to buy one, since my freeviewbox (Thomson) has only only a Scart output on Freeview and the RF loop-though does not carry the freeview channels.

Why do SKY dishes have holes in them by DAB sounds worse than FM
Pea Soup wrote: They make crap woks, but are great for draining the rice Because the wavelength of the signals is: the frequency of the signals is ~12 GHz frequency, which means the wavelength is 3 x 10^8 / 12 x 10^9 = 25mm so the holes are small relative to the wavelength, which means that the
