I player by Brian Gaff[_2_]
If they keep on mucking up the radio and tv I players for blind use and using really awful audio burbling low bit rate stuff on the radio one, they will not be lasting much longer. Its their arrogance that really ****es me off. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

The news by Bill Wright[_2_]
The big stories tonight are (1) Jack Straw (2) the Muslim video threatening to bomb shopping centres. The BBC isn't interested in either and leads with the week-old non-story about the girls who've gone to join the terrorists. Bill

Newsnight Typo by Ian
In last night's Newsnight item on Rifkind/Straw, they used a graphic showing a notepad with the text sliding in from the right in red upper-case, as they went through the MP's rules. https://www.dropbox.com/s/06yj6vd5c1m165e/BBC%20Typo.JPG?dl=0 -- Ian

How we got to now by Dave Saville[_4_]
I only spotted this series last Saturday - which was part 2. Part 2 is on iplayer and says it will be available for 29 days. Assuming part 1 is the same, why can't I find it? TIA -- Regards Dave Saville

Bizarre reception problem - any ideas? by Scott[_2_]
I have discovered that I lose BBC News HD and the other COM7 stations when the Blu-ray player is switched on. The TV shows 'No signal'. Other HD channels are unaffected. When the Blu-ray player is switched off signal strength is about 96% and quality 100% so this is not a case of marginal reception. Can a Blu-ray player interfere with TV reception?

Sheffield Live by Bill Wright[_2_]
Are still playing adverts in audio only, with their static logo on screen for the duration. This isn't television as we know it. Do they not realise that people will reach for the remote? Bill

TV Reminders by Norman Wells[_6_]
If you are a subscriber to Sky, which I'm not, it seems you can sign up to receive an email reminder whenever a certain film or programme is coming up on TV. That sort of thing would be useful to me, particularly as regards films that only come round once in a while which are easy to miss in weekly listings. Does anyone know of a similar free service covering Freeview channels, or have any...

Bizarre News sound quality by Davey
Just watched BBC News on Ch. 130, and both the report from Moscow and another one from somewhere else had such a high background noise level that the reporter could not be heard. Why do they transmit items like this? The Moscow one was obviously recorded, as the subtitles were in step with the reporter's mouth. -- Davey.

Idea by Bill Wright[_2_]
Since there isn't room for a loudspeaker on the front of many modern TV sets, maybe we should turn the set to face the wall and watch via a mirror . . . Bill

Humax YouView box. by Ian Field
Not much in the way of external markings, but the screenprint legend on the PCB says its a DTR-T1000. As far as I've been able to find out, it does Freeview - but it also has an ethernet connector on the back - is it just as simple as running a cable to my router? Its also HD, so I'm wondering whether its backward compatible with an SD 16:9 TV?

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...
