Does anyone remember...... by [email protected]
Dave Tilley who used to frequent thus ng around 10 years ago and used to publish his home address on his posts which was somewhere in Tiverton, Devon. He also made references to the hemlock society. Anyone know what happened to him? His post could be sarcastic and I imagine that did rub people up the wrong way...... S.

This smart tv stick for non smart tvs by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I hear it advertised, only 35 quid blah blah, but very little on which sets and actually what it can do. It occurred to me that if it is in effect an internet device, then I wondered if some bright person could putt talking software on a plug in chip for the most common tvs menus? This is what a lot of people need these days I feel. Still soon I suppose we will be all communicating with...

W10: One Drive and Cortana by Geoff Pearson
Is anyone likely to use Cortana - I have voice dialling on my phone but I've never found a use for it, even in the car? Likewise, OneDrive - so you don't have your files on your PC - you just hope they will come back. I have thousands of documents - better on my HDD that of in a cloud.

Software glitches? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I've noticed just recently that users of the old smart talk set top box have been reporting that some stations say no signal please check your Arial. After an unplug and a reconnection of the power supply things return to normal. Has there been any kind of changes in, say, the last month or so to freeview generally that might be confusing boxes. Another strange one is that some stations seem...

The Avengers by Andy Burns[_9_]
Mark Carver wrote: BBC 2 recently repeated the sit-com, To The Manor Born. One episode was completely removed from the run, because (it is presumed) there was a short sequence shot outside a railway station, and on the wall was a poster of Mr Savile in one of those 'Age of the Train' ads. Various programmes manage to blur out company names on clothing and the contents of TV sets that...

Transmission signal by Davey
I'm not sure what it's officially called, but the signal that is sent by the broadcaster to indicate that a programme is being transmitted is really badly served by Drama. Last night, I had the PVR set up to record Inspector Alleyn, and I watched as the opening sequence, the programme title, the listed main actors, and the Episode title were all transmitted before the PVR eventually received the...

What is CBS up to. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I caught the end of a message just after a program on another cbs channel which just said, cbs reality is moving to a new home on ch 135. Not a lot of help as it said nothing about which platform they were talking about. Presumably not Freeview as that is the RT channel.

Disposable work gloves by Roger Mills[_2_]
Apologies if I'm suffering from brain fart, but I feel sure that someone in one or other of these NGs recently mentioned having bought some disposable (single use) gloves which were tough enough not to split at the slightest provocation and also textured to provide good grip - but I can't find the relevant post. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? I need some which won't...

Yodelling audio? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I watched, well listened to CSI on ch 5 last night, and several times in it I heard what sounded like a yodelling effect as if the audio was being fed throgh one of those pitch altering boxes, a bit like Brian the robot. Not really an issue, but when it happened I had to restart the audio description as it fell out of synch and started ducking the sound but no talking. Is there more of a...

Local DAB vs distant DAB reception..... by [email protected]
Hi, I find if I put up a omnidirectional DAB dipole, I can get 3 local ensembles, Oxford, Northants and HBB on chs 10B, 10C and 10D as well as the national BBC and digital 1 ensembles at 11D and 12B. Unsurprisingly the more distant ensembles do not come in. If I put up a directional high gain DAB yagi aerial pointed towards London, I can get CE digital On 12C, Switch digital on 12A and DRG...

Freeview lets move da channels again.. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
So what are they up to this time. 5USA suggests its going to move to ch 21 on Wednesday, while a new channel called Spike or similar (why) is going to start, as if we do not have enough already, and does this mean the demise of Viva at last, which has had identity issues for some time. Is this the brodcasting equivelent of a supermarket moving its stock around or what? Brian --

accent peculiarity by Graham Murray
the dog from that film you saw writes: Can you imagine the outcry there would have been if they had used a white actor made up black? So none of the 'Golden Oldie' stations will be showing episodes of the "Black and White Minstrel Show" then. :)
