Samsung SSG-5100GB Active 3D TV Glasses by David[_9_]
Anyone into 3D glasses? 2 pairs came with TV set but think it best to have some more just in case we have friends round. First do they have to be same Samsung part number as I see several other Samsung part numbers on Ebay? Looking at my part number I'm surprised to see people bid and win at more than the £12 they are at Currys/PCWorld.

BBC 1+1 and BBC 3 by Mark Carver
Well, it seems the demise of BBC 3 as a broadcast channel, will not mean that BBC 1+1 *HD* will appear in its place on PSB3. Instead the proposal is to only launch BBC 1+1 as an SD service on PSB 3, which of course means only T2 receivers will be able to receive it. That might drive T2 sales (COM 7 doesn't seem to have done ?) BBC 3's HD bandwidth on PSB 3 looks to be taken by extending CBBC...

little places by Brian Gaff[_2_]
In a way is this not a bit like the shed? One goes there to escape real life for hours at a time. I used to like crawling into the middle of a roll of netting or carpet when I was small. Unfortunately this lost its appeal when some kind person saw me and rolled me around the garden till I was sick. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active "Bill Wright"...

BBC iPlayer question by Scott[_2_]
I tried to watch Reporting Scotland on the iPad this evening. All I could get was London Tonight. I changed the location to Scotland. The channel guide/schedules show BBC One Scotland. The box says Reporting Scotland yet when I clicked it I still got London Tonight. Any ideas what is going on here? PS I live in Scotland. Is it because we voted No in the Referendum?

Mounting flat screen TV on wall and discreet cabling by David[_13_]
X-post I'm re-mounting the 42" Panasonic plasma on the wall above the fireplace. All the important cable entries are to the back of the TV and so a right sod to get at when the TV is on the wall because of the limited room between TV and wall. Between 75mm and 90mm depending on which connection so just enough for a stiff cable to bend, but not a lot extra to line it up and fit it.

Car radios: a personal history by Bill Wright[_2_]
My first car radio was a Radiomobile. It was 7" x 2" by about a foot and a half. It had valves, and took a while to warm up. I bought it from a bloke who sidled up to me when I was fixing an aerial in Toll Bar, which was a very dodgy area near Doncaster. I was parked down the alley behind Prospect Road when this bloke appeared, carrying the radio. I connected it to my van battery and put a...

Radio Scotland silent on DAB by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Both yesterday morning and again this morning we've found that BBC Scotland is 'silent' on our DAB tuners here. The display shows the station name. And further info says "Tayside" which is our region. The downstairs 'hifi' sic Pure tuner shows a quality of 100 and a fair signal level well above what would normally squeltch output. Are they broadcasting on DAB? I presume its not a transmitter...

My Jump Leads Are Bigger Than Yours ... by Java Jive[_2_]
I want to live out in the wilds of the country, and am prepared to rough it accordingly, but, as a result of the storms at the end of last week, no electricity for four days out of the last six is taking things a bit far, especially as it means no heating, no hot water, no hot food ... Also, three lots of puddles on floors, lost a chimney pot, garden shed leaning at a drunken, seasick-making...

radio waves make you ill? by Bill Wright[_2_]
If you are affected by radio waves getting into your brain, making you irrational and eccentric and causing you to believe all sorts of wacky things, the answer can be found in your own kitchen. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20150112_190433.jpg Bill

The Sky At Night - bad news by CD
I was hoping that she was on a 1 year contract & would be gone this month, but she's back tonight. The new producers have really trashed the show IMO, all the regulars have gone apart from Pete Lawrence who is relegated to a cameo. Him & Lintott should bail out & produce their own show & stick it on Youtube, with the old regulars of course. CD

BT box oddity by Bill Wright[_2_]
Fault was that the BT box had pixellation on some channels, and the TV set connected on loopthrough was the same. The TV set was a Sony with a diagnostics page and this showed s/n ratio fluctuating from 40dB down to 12dB. With the BT box out of circuit the Sony was fine. Aerial signals from Belmont were good and healthy. Another BT box arrived and was just the same. A third box ditto. The BT...

Rhombics for uhf? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I did test this idea some years ago, and they seem to work very well though even at these frequencies they can be quite big. They have always fascinated me because of thier directionality when they have a terminating resistor at the other end to the feed point, and I never did quite understand why half the signal did not vanish into the load it obviously was.

TBM UK by Brian Gaff[_2_]
What dross is this now? Got the indication, found new channel(s) yesterday. My God, literally. Wholesome, its described as, American Holy Crap is what it actually is. I'm beginning to feel we need to protect ourselves from crappy US shows a lot more. I found God today, and let me tell you about it. Very careless to have people dropping god about the place for people to fall over I say. ...
