sign language by Trevor Wright
I have recently recorded a couple of late-night programmes which turned out to be signed by a largish bloke occupying a good chunk of real estate at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. These were digital recordings (on a Topfield). I note that the Radio Times entry does indeed indicate SL on the programme details; for example, on Channel 4. While I applaud this facility for those...

Pace DS430N Receiver Brand Code by tazmaniak
I have a Toshiba DVD-HD (RD-XS32SB) which has an IR control cable to change channel on satellite receivers, however you need a code for the sat box before the system will work. The instruction manual for the DVD-HD only lists one model of Pace Sat Box (MSS200) but I have the Pace DS430N which came when I subscribed to Sky. Does anyone know where I can find the 4 digit sat receiver brand code? ...

analogue video disruption by King Queen
I watch Digital TV on my computer. It works fine after a bit of tinkering. The wallplate (which I replaced with an F-type) goes to a set-back amplifer (I know, I know) which is connected to a screened splitter. This splitter then sends signal direct to my DTT card (Nova) and also to my VHS which then goes into an analogue card in my computer. All flyleads have been made myself using CT100 and...

ITV4 by John Porcella
Is this a known problem? I set up my Philips DTT decoder to switch itself on to ITV4 one minute or so before ITV4 was due to broadcast, as I wanted to record 'Department S', which I have not seen since childhood. The VCR was set up properly. When I came home to view the recording, the entire soundtrack was there, but the entire programme action was overlaid with a message stating that "ITV4

Log Periodic V Yagi by Geoff Lane
I'm after installing a new external aerial. I live in Edgware, NW London (HA88YH) and the wolfbane site suggests a Log Periodic. Viewing surrounding houses there aren't too many of that design about with most being various flavours of Yagi. Reading up of the log aerial it says it has better bandwidth but less gain that a conventional aerial. Strangely, doing a search for log aerials I found...

Cost of Commercial TV by Stephen Henson
In article , says... Andy Sinclair wrote: Consider a subset of shopping expenditure such as Tesco, which has a turnover of £34 billion. ITV's budget is less that 5% of expenditure in just Tesco, never mind 13% of all shopping. That set me thinking so instead of taking BECTU's - or...

Humax 9200T video files by Rob
Is there any consensus on the best tool to 'clean' Humax video files once they're transferred to a PC? I've recently bought a Pinnacle Showcentre 200, and it's very picky about playing files back - even if they play correctly on the the PC. My pick of the freebies, btw, is HDTVtoMPEG. Many thanks Rob

For the last few days, I get no Channel 5 reception on my Humax PVR-9200T but it is fine on my Sony DV3 - both connected to the same aerial. How can this be? Martin.

dvd upscaling? by Mike D
I heard that if you play your standard dvd's on a HD DVD player attached to a HD TV the player will upscale your ordinary dvd's and they will come out showing in HD quality. Is this true or is it they will play at near HD quality and not be as good as true HD broadcasts? thanks Mike

BBC South regional on digital terrestrial by Chris
Hi, I’ve noticed over time when watching BBC South Today on digital terrestrial the picture is clipped at the right side and there is some form of ‘ghosting’ on the image. This only happens for me on the local BBC programs and not all the time – and is never seen on other channels and for that matter at non regional specific times on BBC.

Is there much to choose between basic Freeview boxes? by Blue Frog
Sony does the best one-good remote and program guide, the others look a bit cheap in comparison but basically work. If you want TopupTV you're limited, I think the Humax is probably the best "Rick Marks" wrote in message ... Is it worth paying for a reasonably well-known brand? Or are the guts basically all the same?
