blackberries near Peterborough by Bill Wright[_3_]
Go to the Services at the junction of the A1 and the A605. The lorry and caravan parking area is a long thin bit to the west of the rest of the site. Go right to the end, in between the two rows of lorries and caravans. At the end on the left in the corner is a little plantation of trees, including some oaks. When nobody's looking nip into it and head south about five yards and find the...

vcr repairs and servicing and macrovision removal by Stephen[_7_]
Hello, I've got a couple of VHS tapes that are not available on DVD so I got my old VCR out of the wardrobe and tried to connect it to my Pioneer freeview dvd recorder. But the dvd recorder displayed a message saying it was copy protected and refused to record it. I'm guessing it is macrovision? I don't have a video card so I cannot copy to my pc at the moment. Please recommend one if you think...

ITV Newsroom background by Dave W
In the ITV 'newsroom' which is mainly CGI, I find myself watching the background more than the presenter. It's totally ludicrous, with hundreds of screens and open laptops all showing different pictures, yet nobody watching them. I look out for a screen featuring a man in a red lifejacket, soon after the background has been started up. I wonder how long it runs before repeating. Then again I...

Perpetual motion? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Interesting to see that CPC advertise some of their 12V input, 230V output inverters as a means to 'charge batteries ... in case of a power blackout.' Bill

When will the dummy channels be removed? by Brian Gaff
Anyone know when all the dummy old channels will go away on Freeview? Until that occurs I fancy my local mux channels will have to remain over ch 800. I have been told by some people that the system is basically stuffed by the huge number of channels and suffers this issue due to this. It has no memory to shove things into the right slots, which might also explain some repeats as well...

BBC News Blunder by Java Jive[_2_]
"Powys man gets broadband via satellite over Africa" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-mid-wales-40745533 " they are positioned above the equator to maximise coverage." Oh dear! Actually, they are positioned over the equator because that is the only place you can obtain a geo-stationary orbit, enabling fixed dishes to work. Satellites that aren't in geo-stationary orbit

Wenvoe woes by Jeff Layman[_2_]
We've just been staying in a holiday cottage west of Bristol. The TV reception was poor - no signal from Mendip due to a hill being in the way, so reception was from Wenvoe (about 30km west). According to https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Wenvoe reception should have been good, but it wasn't. There was nothing on Com 6, 7, and 8 - none of the 3 TVs there would even register their existence....

Humax Freesat upgrade by David[_14_]
We have a (several years) old Humax Foxsat HD where the BBC iPlayer no longer works and there is no recording capability (internal or external). We also have a Humax HB1000S with an external drive for recording. The only issue with this is the single tuner which means you can't watch one thing and record another. However this isn't a massive issue because I would have to upgrade from a 4...

BBC news coverage of the Passchendaele centenary. by Terry Casey[_2_]
I was appalled by the inaccuracies in the the BBC's 10 o'clock News last night in the reports of the centenary of the start of the Third Battle of Ieper. The battle lasted three months until the village of Passchendaele - its target, was reached - we were told. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! The target was the North Sea ports with the intention of halting the activities of the German U-boats which...

channel line-up by Bill Wright[_3_]
The Freeview TV guide (the LCN) is set to be updated and expanded on Wednesday, 2 August. Some channels will be moving to new numbers and viewers may need to retune to ensure they have the latest channel line-up, where this isn’t automatic. Ofcom have published more info on 700 MHz with some start dates for the STV channel moves. Link to the information on Digital UK’s...

IOT] Bostik No,. 2 by Pinnerite
I needed to plug the top of a small short black plastic tube. After scratching my head for a bit, I remembered that I once had a tube of Bostik number 2, kept in a garage drawer. I recovered it, a little dusty but otherwise unaffected by the effluxion of time. After applying it I realised that I could not remember how long it would take to cure. What's more the tube was now the partly...

I can't get rid of the smell by Brian Gaff
T'other day, I put on my not that old TV. I never normally use it when I'm here on my own as the screen is a little redundant. However it was dusty inside it and as it got warm it made a smell not unlike that combination of old fan heater and melting transformer varnish one gets on older gear. No its flat screen, but anyway, eventually I forgot about it and yet since then all I can smell is...
