Unable to get correct aspect ratio, Sky News by Terry[_3_]
My gym has a couple of large wall-mounted TVs. (Sorry, I should have checked make and model.) I asked them a week ago if they could correct the niggling problem that the bottom scrolling captions were never fully visible, and the sides were cut off too. ('TAX AVOIDANCE' becomes 'VOIDANCE', etc.) Today I found that the scrolling was now visible, but the edges were still missing. And there's a...

4G possible effects by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Not sure yet, but I've encountered problems with our Ch60- mux reception this afternoon (on three different receivers). And two weeks ago I saw that the base station top-end nearby was being changed. Since then I have detected some '4G' signals. (The base station is about 400 m away in about the same direction as the TV TXs.) I've taken some fresh spectra and will do some checking and then...

Freeview Play... WHY! by Jon[_2_]
What is Freeview Play, when is it coming and how can I get it? To stay relevant in a world of television where catch-up and on demand video is king, Freeview has announced its plans for a connected future. Managing director Guy North outlined the plans for Freeview Play at a London briefing for Pocket-lint and select other journalists and it looks like the company, which is so synonymous...

MatsuiM1602 PVR by Woody[_5_]
Has anyone either got a circuit diagram of the PSU of this beasty, or failing that know where I can get a 8S100L (or equivalent) thermistor which is in line with the supply presumably to stop surge. They are available from the likes of CPC but a 1 device (or less) and 4 P&P seems a bit of a waste of time. The device is continuous rated 1A, is 10R @ 25C, and 1R2 at 50% load and 0R68 at...

Sony Radio Repair by Norman Wells[_6_]
I have a tiny 23 year-old Sony radio (ICF-SW1) that has developed what appears to be a standard fault of distorted sound through the speaker but not via headphones. All the websites I've been to seem to think it's a capacitor problem and that they all need replacing. It's a quality bit of kit so I'd like it repaired, but I don't have the confidence to fiddle about with something so small...

BBC Codecs and black hair by Vir Campestris
Is it just me, or do the Beeb have a problem with dark hair? I've noticed it before on TOTP1979, where if someone with an Afro jumps up and down the hair lags behind. But it's old stuff, coming off old film, and probably cheaply digitised. And Afro haircuts are sadly lacking these days. But tonight I noticed Miliband's hair doing it on the news. Andy

Unusual Oxford Ch 8 problem by vigman[_2_]
I have an unusual problem. I have a Humax Freeview HD PVR downstairs and a TVonics Freeview HD PVR upstairs, off the SAME professionally installed roof aerial. The Humax now tunes to the Oxford Test Transmission on Channel 8. However, the TVonics box does not. It has BBC3 on 7 and BBC4 on 9 but manually selecting channel 8 reverts to BBC3 on ch 7? I have updated all software for the TVonics...

Using PC as Terrestrial/Satellite recorder - obsolete? by David[_13_]
Does nobody use PCs as TV recorders any more? The decoder cards available on the Internet (Hauppauge and TBS) seem to be very old stock (judging by the reviews and the OS support quoted) and the Hauppauge card costs more than a stand alone receiver with USB recording (e.g. Humax HB-1000s for £74.99 at John Lewis). Is this a dying market? What are the benefits compared to using streaming...

What TV recording kit do I need? by Lobster
I'm a bit bewildered by the various options available. Currently have Virgin Tivo, but it doesn't permit streaming around the house which is what I want. I also have a NAS box (Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2) on to which I can save downloaded video files, which I can them view on any one of three TVs, all of which are either smart TVs or ethernet-connected via a streaming box. So, basically, I want...

suspicious by Bill Wright[_2_]
Over the years we've had a few of these. They ring up and tell you what they want, and don't seem too interested in the price. You go along and do the job. Every second you're there there's someone watching you. Certain areas of the premises are out of bounds. No-one seems too interested in the results of the job. There are various people there who you can't place within the group; young...

It just sits there telling me that the next...

Why no OTA recording and internet use possible? by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I have a Panasonic PVR DMR-HWT130. It will record two Freeview channels without problem, but will not allow internet (network) usage such as BBC iPlayer if recording even just one channel OTA. Do other Freeview PVRs have the same restriction? If so, why? Is it a limitation of processor power or limited memory availability? -- Jeff
