Slow Humax, dirty remote by Paul D Smith[_2_]
My Humax Fox-HDR has been responding very slowly lately. Having tried all the usual (reset to factory defaults etc) I decided to check the remote itself. Having prised it apart (difficult but possible - clips all around the edge) and cleaned the button and track contacts (they didn't seem dirty but...) it all seems to work much better now. So apparently the issue was the remote buttons...

Have BBC been fiddling with I player in the last few days? by Brian Gaff
I ask as it seems the flash player in IE8 now does not open to reveal the buttons in this browser, but works in Firefox. I know IE8 is now quite old but I'm similarly sure a lot of people still use it, those who cannot be bothered to upgrade and those still using xp. I wonder if it maybe still works via the mouse but it certainly fails on the keyboard as I tried to use it to play new tricks...

Rip of aerial fitters by Corporal Jones
Just spent the weekend at the in-laws in Solihull, usual things as they are both over 80, cut the lawns, hedges etc. FIL also asked me to look at their tv system as it was not working (he has 3 TV's in the house) he has sky so he uses that on his main TV but the other ones have no input from the aerial. Tracing the cables around the house they run into a junction box at the rear which is fed...

Sky "Searching for listings" by Dickie mint[_2_]
On another forum this was posted; "Over the past week, OH has noticed that as he changes channels on Sky, instead of it instantly telling him what programme is on, it invariably puts up the phrase 'searching for listings' and takes up to 10 seconds to put up the information. Is anyone else finding this happening, or is it possible there is a problem with our box? " Anyone else? Richard

A few naive questions about digital radio by Another John
As subject: a few naive questions about digital radio: 1. We use DR in our kitchen. Reception for the Beeb stations, and several others, is good, but that for Absolute 60s Radio!, which we discovered a few months ago, is patchy, and often just rubbish. Since A60sR! is the best programme available at tea-making time ... is there any way I can boost our signal? 2. Or is there any prospect...

Screens and eye strain. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Now I cannot see any screen any more, but to me at least a person using an ipad seems to have it very bright indeed. I can detect it, almost as if it were some kind of uv source that makes your eyes sore, yet ordinry lcd screens on tvs do not hav that feeling to me. Possibly due to the small size and brightness.

Motorway Cops, BBC1 failed to record by Dickie mint[_2_]
Set Humax Foxsat HDR to record BBC1HD's Motorway Cops at 2240 last night. Nothing there, although it is shown in the schedule. Did the BBC fail to send the start signal on BBC1HD? Has the Humax developed a funny? Did anyone else successfully record it? Answers on a postcard to.....

Freeview wastage by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Most channels when they are limbering up to start just put a banner of coming soon up or an item in the list of stations, but this new "no we are not a god channel honest guv" channel is not apparently starting till after the new year, yet seems to feel that it needs some spiritual music played over and over to be on its channel now. Seems a waste to me. This retune in September is now...

Aerial fitter in Montrose area? by Tim+[_2_]
Long shot I know, but my daughter has moved into a new flat in Montrose and is having TV Freeview reception problems. It's a rented flat but the aerial *isn't* on the inventory so I'm not sure if there's much future in pestering the landlord. She's not got an amplifier and after an auto (& manual) tune she's only getting HD channels, all the SD ones are breaking up. She will probably get an...

odd thing happened by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was driving my Transit along a straight country road, with trees on both sides when two things happened at the same instant. The cab doors clicked to unlocked then back again, and the dashboard light for the right indicator came on and went off again. I'll go that way again when I get a chance. I'm wondering if there was some very strong RF about. Bill

Slingbox by Norman Wells[_6_]
Since the BBC and other UK broadcasters have gone to a new satellite with a smaller footprint, and since I go to the Canaries a fair bit, and since it doesn't cover there any more, I've been looking at investing in a Slingbox 350 to watch my home TV over the internet on a Nexus 7 tablet I can take.. Does anyone here have a Slingbox, and can they recommend it? Are there any broadband issues...

What frequency.. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Do those remote operated mains outlets work on. I hav one which works fine but I l also have a ddouble one which can have the sockets operated seperately giving me range issues. Sometimes one of them won't operate from my bed to the wall just ten feet away, Move a chair in another part of the room and it works again. I'm thinking reflections from the metal in the chair.

The Roads To Freedom, Georgia Brown by Java Jive[_2_]
Been taking a trip down Memory Lane today ... Remembering her role as the beautiful carbaret/nightclub singer Lola in the BBC's first class dramatisation of Jean Paul Sartre's "Les Chemins De Liberte" ("The Roads To Freedom"), today I watched "One Pair Of Eyes" featuring Georgia Brown's view of Cockney 'Lunnon' as it then was changing from being an area of predominantly Jewish to predominantly...

Humax PVR 9150T by Bill Wright[_2_]
As some of you might remember from previous correspondence, I sold several batches of twenty of these receivers a few years ago. I was left with three spares. I sold one, used another as a means of time shifting radio in the workshop, and then a few days ago found a home for the last one. But it was faulty. Brand new, straight out of the box! Of course it's no good moaning to Humax. The...

Friend has a Sony HXD890. She wants to delete the backups on its hard drive. But it won't let her. To quote from the manual: "To erase backup data on the HDD 1. Select "Erase back-up data" in step 4, and press ENTER. 2. Select "Yes" and press ENTER." She tried that and got: "this function cannot be used now"
