TOT ambiguity by [email protected]
A message I received today was ambiguous due to poor English. It included the words "Residents name: Harry Bassett or Fiona Bassett." I'm afraid I emailed back "Does the resident's name depend on whether it's a work day or not?" Bill

Aerial height question by Brian Wescombe
In the Swindon area, TV is provided by the Mendip and Oxford transmitters. I'm moving to an area of the town which uses a local relay (Seagry Court relay, which is on top of a block of flats!), as apparently my area is "in a bit of a dip" so can't see either of the main transmitters. How high could I (within reason) stick a pole on the roof and mount an aerial that would see the Mendip...

Widescreen 16:9 - quantity NOT quality? by SHook
Can someone tell me why oh why are people so happy to watch widescreen TV where everyone's face is squashed flat. I went to local TV store and said to them that the picture we were watching was not 'real' or true. ie people faces were squashed - and Gary Lineker does not have a face the shape of football! The shopkeeper said it was real and accurate and I could SEE it wasn't - but no he said this...

Bill and the DAT75 by Staiger
Bill made a disparaging remark about the Televes DAT75 aerial recently. Well, I'm relieved because I trust what Bill says and I was just about to buy one! I'm in a 'no reception until 2011' zone (Felixstowe). Even so, I'm able to receive some muxes reliably but not others. I need an aerial with loads of gain and a really good front-to-back ratio (my aerial points at Sudbury, but the back...

Set top box recommendations please? by Richard B
Hello ppl, I'm thinking of buying my first digital / freeview set top box. My brother already has a Sony VTX-D800U which seems pretty impressive, flips quickly through channels and has a nice teletext menu/display. However, the Sony VTX-D800U does seem a tad expensive and I'm told now the way to go is to get one with a hard drive for recording programmes. Please could anyone offer some...

External F connectors without Self Amalgamating Tape, and dying sky cards. by Dave Fawthrop
Got all the bits for my $ky system for the caravan, and got it receiving Astra2D :-) Ch 4 Documentaries are Essential for us. Got to get a Freesatfromsky card as the series 2 card we got with an old box is set to West, and will not decrypt Ch4.

Length of Scart Leads by Gordon Hudson
Having decided to rewire all the spaghetti at the back of the TV most of the problem seems to be leads that are far too long. I have made RF ones the correct length for those connections, ut the shortest Scart leads seem to be 1.5M. I have one very good 50cm one that came with an ondigital box. Does anyone know where I can get ones of that sort of length which are of decent quality? It may...
