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...

In message , at 01:45:33 on Fri, 26 Dec 2014, Dave Liquorice remarked: Not 'goods' at all. the change only applies to services to include ebook, software and music downloads. This raises another question, does this change really apply to NIN? I'm not buying an eBook nor software nor music. I'm...

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...

BBC2 HD by Java Jive[_2_]
BBC2 HD's full schedule, as advertised by the BBC itself, is here ... http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctwo/programmes/schedules/hd There's no indication of it there, but Digiguide suggests that Andrew Marr's History Of Modern Britain is one of about four or five programmes over the day not being broadcast in HD, and indeed the series is not available on iPlayer as HD. Why should this be? What is...

wifi question by Bill Wright[_2_]
I put this on uk tv broadcast but then thought there'll be more people on here who would know about wifi, so here it is on here as well. I have wifi analyser app on my phone, and I also have a wi-spy thingy. Why are almost all wifis on channels 1, 6, or 11? I can see that they are form the only combination of three channels that don't overlap at all, but I would have thought that better...

Damned Christmas by Bill Wright[_2_]
For weeks now Hil has been in daily receipt of parcels, and now and then she holds up a tiny garment, which is always decorated with bad taste slogans and/or cartoon characters, and I am expected to gush my approval. I have no idea what these things cost but I bet they're not cheap. Yesterday I was asked, "What do you think we should get the dogs?" to which I replied, "The rabbits," which...

Volume/Gain curio by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've finally taken the plunge, bought a new TV, and sadly waved bye-bye to my old CRT (analogue SD) set. Overall the new TV seems fine but I am puzzled by one curio. Have the feeling there is a 'fix' hidden away in the various 'settings' menus but as yet, not found it. So I'd welcome some info that may sort the puzzle. In brief: The output volume level when using the TV set's own tuner is...

Dolby Digital and Now box. by David[_9_]
On a trial of Sky Movies with my new Now box only tried one movie so far but I assume Sky do do DD with their movies when on Sky Satellite TV. If a Movie with DD is on Now box will the DD come through? If not is it the HDMi connection that does not transfer DD? Regards David
