Did Virgin make changes to Recording Menu display? by David[_9_]

Forgive me if this has been covered by Pinnerite[_2_]
since I started to benefit from HD transmissions, I began to wish for more channels. Out of curiosity I did a trawl of the www and came across this: http://www.techradar.com/news/television/4k-tv-broadcasts-are-on-the-way-but-there-are-problems-ahead-1259434#null Given the release of frequencies to mobile networks, what are the chances of either more HD or any 4k. Will it all ever settle...

No Surprises, but: "UK Should Get 'Faster And Cheaper' 4G Data", says Ofcom by Java Jive[_2_]
And guess where the extra spectrum is to come from: "Mobile phone users in the UK can expect their 4G data bills to drop in the future, Ofcom says, following a decision to free up more spectrum. The telecoms regulator has ruled that frequencies currently reserved for digital TV transmissions and wireless microphones should switch over to mobile broadband.

Freesat with talking menus? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I have been asked if such a box exists. According to RNIB it does not. You need to buy one of the up market Panasonic tvs to get talking features, which is a real pain. anyone heard of anything else? I'm getting disillusioned by freesat even with no hd, which I do not need anyhow, but it would be nice to get access to some of the other channels one sees plugged as being on Freesat. It...

TV "PVR" capabilities by AnthonyL
What PVR-like facilities are available in the current range of TVs? My ACER TV is a few years old and had* the capability of time shift, and of recording on-demand, but it doesn't have the ability to say "Record every episode of xxx". Have things moved on? * It used to record to a USB stick but no longer does so :( --

Portability of DR mode recordings by Richard Tobin
My Panasonic blu-ray recorder can record TV programs on blu-ray (or copy them from the internal hard disk) in "DR" mode, which seems to be essentially the original broadcast stream. Are these recordings viewable on other blu-ray players? Or does each manufacturer have its own version? And has someone here with a blu-ray drive on their computer looked to see whether they are readable with...

Determining likely TV reception - interpreting Wolfbane, http://www.digitaluk.co.uk by Ulrich Onken[_3_]
On 11.11.2014 01:01, Bill Wright wrote: Ulrich Onken wrote: Any installer will probably recommend to use Freesat as the cheaper and more reliable option... No, what he needs is two absolutely ginormous aerials on unfeasibly long masts, and a tremendously complicated box of tricks to combine the signals. We aerial installers have mouths to feed you know.

Vintage TV Freeview 242 by Derek F[_4_]
Channel 242 is advertised as being available on Freeview 242. I get the message for it and some other new channels, Sorry your device is not compatible with this service. My device is the latest Youview box with Internet connection. I also tried it on my Humax HD Fox T2 without success. Derek

HDMI wierdness by David[_13_]
Last night our Virgin Tivo box suddenly refused to display any programmes on our Sony TV. The lame excuse was that the TV didn't implement DRM to the HDMI specs. Powering the TV off and on didn't fix it, but powering the Tivo off and on seems to have cleared the fault. Now as far as I can remember HDMI implements DRM so that it checks it is talking to a real TV and not just some recorder...

Delays in local OBs? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
A few days ago both on London Live and one of the main channels local news, they interviewed a person live, well live at the time, from Raynes Park, which is really not very far away, its in greater London. The delay on the replies was almost annoying. Anyone would have thought the person was in Africa or the other side of the world. Do they push this sort of stuff via sat these days...

BBC News 'tickertape' by Brian Gaff[_2_]
In the old days of teletext you had two modes ie, leave current page till a certain remote key is hit, or let it roll around. Do they not offer such an option on red button? I cannot access text on tvs any more as the current system, I have been told is not actually textual any more, so cannot just be read. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active
