Humax HD Fox T2 and Iplayer by John Silver[_3_]
I dare say this has been covered elsewhere that I can't find. I have not used the STB for Iplayer for some time. The screen has changed into two sections Apps and My Apps. iPlayer gives a message that I need to register online with Humax to now get it but Youview etc are still available. Has iPlayer been taken from other sources as well as my Panasonic DMP BDT110 Blu ray player now is only...

laughter. by Brian Gaff
You know, when is the 1 show done. is it actually live or recorded. The laughter when I listen froma distance as I am now sounds a bit suspect in places, as if its been augmented by some extra mixed in canned stuff.

Top Tips: how to please the doctor by Bill Wright[_2_]
A few weeks before your annual review, start to drink more, then cut back to normal a few days before your appointment. Then when he asks you can say, "I've cut back just lately doctor." Bill

Internet over CATV network by Nick Le Lievre
Anyone here know anything about this? I have had a fibre cable brought into my flat and have a Zhone GPON fibre Router with an SC/UPC connector for the WAN connection. I believe it's transmitted over a CATV network but I don't really understand much about it. Can anyone explain in laymans terms?

That's Solent by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Local TV starts tonight at 8.15. I can't wait, and I bet Mark can't too! I'd have thought they could find a better static picture today prior to starting broadcasting than a seafront somewhere with the most prominent establishment being a slot-machine arcade! -- Jeff

More spectrum to be used for 4G by tim.....
"Scott" wrote in message ... Found this by chance: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-30117891 Does anyone know which TV channels are affected and what the implications will be? No TV channels will be affected (assuming you are using channels to refer to: BBC ITV, etc).

Samsung TV menu system by Woody[_5_]
My wife's aunt (70 miles away from us) has a 28" Samsung non-HD LED TV and on the Com5 channels it is saying to check your aerial due to weak signal. When I was there last week it was showing 91% signal strength and 100% signal quality (yes, I know they have no absolute meaning but they are at least an indication.) Does anyone know where in the hierarcy of the menu system the signal...

Freeview garbling syndrome. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Last night on several stations I noted a kind of garbled speech from the program content. It was as if the soundhad later bits joined before earlier bits. I don't think the box could manage this feat, so suspect that its the audio on the stream that is like it. Remined me of whenphones are about to lose lock, but much more annoying. CBS Action was one of them, and one of the ITV clones,...

Sky box shows guide but not programs by Richard Tobin
An aged relative, hundreds of miles away, has a problem with their Sky receiver. It shows the EPG, but when they select a channel it shows the name of the program (?) but there's no picture or sound. The TV in the bedroom works. Is this problem familiar to anyone? I don't have Sky myself. -- Richard

Replace broadcast with Internet TV? by David[_13_]
I don't think so. I have a Virgin Media cable link which tests out at 152Mb/sec download. It can't stream a TV programme from the Virgin website without buffering all the time. YMMV of course, but broadcast is still the best use of bandwidth. Cheers

Wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff by Roderick Stewart[_3_]
I think I've set everything back to GMT, or UTC, or whatever it's called now, and I think I've remembered everything, including the central heating, the digital camera, the bedside radio, the microwave, and of course all the actual clocks, but what a mess. As well as the nuisance of going through this daft rigmarole twice a year, every gadget that needs changing seems to deal with it in a...

Whit noise not so white. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Have you ever listened to a white noise sound on a digital radio or tv. This is what we get in some Jarre' pieces and other electronic music. On a cd it sounds convincing but on most internet radio, dab or freeview, it sounds more like svsvsvsvsvsv, as if it just does not know what to do with the wide band sound. Such is the compromise made by our naff systems. Bring back the real thing.

Virgin TV Anywhere and Tivo box by David[_13_]
Any Virgin Media customers out there? I have a Tivo box, and it looks as though I can manage it from a phone, tablet or PC. It might be possible (but I haven't managed to work this out yet) to view recordings on a PC (but not on a tablet or phone). You can apparently also view some (but not all) TV shows live.

sound of landing on a comet? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59609002/01%20touchdown_public.mp3 Or is it a joke? It of course is genuine, but it sounds to me like a stylus being pu on a record and skipping off to the side. Apparently it was the first landing not the bounce, taken through the legs which had a transducer attached. Brian --
