aerial upgrade by Becci
Hey, I don't know a whole lot about digital tv as you will soon find out. I apologise and hope you will take pity on me :) I have just got a freeview box and the web says that my postcode should be able to receive it but may need aerial upgrade. It says that i need a wideband aerial. However i am in a rented property with no access to the loft so this is not really viable without a hell of a...

SCART Switch by Agamemnon
I need a SCART switch that will enable me to connect my STB and DVD player to my the RGB SCART socket on my TV preferably with a remote control and under 20. I don't want one that detects when the DVD player is switched on and switches to the DVD automatically because I also want to play CD's on the DVD player without it affecting what I'm watching on the TV. With my current configuration...

LCD digital picture by Jezzer
Hi all, I'm thinking of buying a 32 HD LCD IDTV in the sales but I'm very disappointed with the picture I see on the display models in the shops. Granted the HD demo looks wonderful but can I stand the quality of picture it produces in the meantime on Freeview until HD is available to watch? And this puzzles me. The digibox I use at home (an early Thomson one) produces stunning pictures on my...

Sweeney Todd cut short. by AJM
Two nights ago I set the timer on my Sony IDTV from the EPG and left it on standby to record Sweeney Todd on BBC 1. My Sony VCR with Smartlink switched on as expected. I had done this because I presumed I would be recording the digital transmission, which is superior in quality to the analogue transmission, which would have been used as the source had I used the timer on the VCR. Then, at...

DVB-T USB stick that works on PC and Mac? by Fred Finisterre
Is there one? The Freecom DVB-T is PC only. As is the Terratec Cinergy XS Hybrid I think. Cheers, Fred.

Image of a name by john
Just noticed on a TV programme how "Plasma TV" seems to have such a macho / must have image - even though the person may not know the difference between LCD and Plasma. Perhaps it goes back to Sci Fi films when the lads all wanted Plasma Guns to shoot the aliens. -- -- John

freeview stb- how to manually set up channels? by [email protected]
Am new to this so apologies for any naive questions. I would like to try to get extra channels (red hot for example) on Phillips DTR 1500 STB. I have read the threads but don't think I can access MUX addresses or add custom channels through this box. Do you need a PC DigiTV to do this type of thing, or is there a way past the 'fool-proof' interface. Thanks for your help

Noisy Topfield 250gb by Londoncityslicker
I've been uming and aaahing about getting a Toppy. Finally decided to go for the 250gb version as it's currently selling for 285 on one of the websites. Basically 35 more for another 110gb was a no brainer. It's a joy to use. However, one criticism is the noise. The hard disc seems to be constantly spinning. It is noticeable even at moderate volumes.

Sky Digital to Freeview by Tim Rogers
Been with Sky for a number of years but just not getting value for money. Present have just the entertainment package (21 per month) It seems to me that Freeview (with Top Up TV for UK Gold) seems a better proposition. So a couple of questions. 1. If I cancel my Sky subscription and then decide to reinstate it at some future date then will I have to pay a 'connection fee' and then would I...

Daewoo SetPal likes ITV News by Colum Mylod
My Daewoo had an upset yesterday and gave up trying to show any video. Tuned in ok but no pic or sound. So it had a full reboot courtesy of power removal. When it came back it asked nicely to autoscan, deleted DTT 81 ITV News, all was well. Later when it was set on by the remote (handy for the auto SCART switcher box) it again asked to autotune but this time *added* 81 ITV News, which is now a...

SCART switch with modulator by Nigel Molesworth
I've got a DTV in the kitchen (or at least Mrs Nigel has) and I want to be able to feed it with signals from the device I'm watching, either a DVD recorder or a PVR. Neither has a modulator, so I was considering a video sender, but I think it would be more robust to use a switch coupled to a modulator. Any suggestions along these lines? -- Nigel M

Video senders by Marcus Durham
In message , Fr Jack writes Or whatever they are called..... Are they any good? I want to watch freeview in a room directly above my lounge. Adding wires, etc. is not an option. Any recommendations? Preferably sub-50. Aldi currently have some for 20 quid a throw.

Is there a way of connecting up the following: A freeview Box Sky Digi Box VCR DVD so that you can easily move between the four? My TV has two scarts sockets. I think I've worked out a way of doing it but wondered what the "experts" here thought.
