Analogue Video senders still in use by Brian Gaff
I was just poodling around the uhf tv band on my scanner the other day when I heard the unmistakable sound of analogue tv and fm sound. It was some foreign language film, sounded polish or something similar. At first I though it was real DX, but I think even Eastern Europe has now gone digital, so I monitored the sound and it eventually sort of changed to a UK channel, so I guess it was a...

95.05Mc/s That was the frequency when Radio Leicester started fifty years ago, apparently. Why the half channel? Bill

W7 Media Centre - does it still do anything? Netflix? by David[_14_]
I started off trying to find out how to view Netflix on a Raspberry Pi, which seems overly complicated until the next release of Kodi. So I thought I would try on a PC. First search results for Windows 7 said to use Media Centre. I followed the instructions but not much happened. I then tried the Microsoft download link but it wasn't there any more. Looking at the Netflix site for the...

High pressure and Freeview by Brian Gaff
I noticed over the last few days, that vhf and uhf signals on my scanner are showing all the signs of tropo effects, ie well over the radio horizon reception as is often the case this time of year with temperature inversions common. However last night on the radio they put out a message from Freeview saying that the atmospherics had been causing lots of break up and badly pixelated TV. ...

Terrible iPlayer response by Davey
Last night, I tried to watch Robot Wars on iPlayer using my Humax, but kept getting a 'Sorry, there is something wrong' message. Whatever I did, I could not make iPlayer work. I then tried get-iplayer on the PC, and it downloaded the programme, but at the speed of a lazy snail. I could almost count the bits being transferred. This morning, iPlayer is still useless. Like last night, it...

How many types of screens are there? by Brian Gaff
I was just wondering a person I know was asking me if I knew as almost every telly in the shops right now claims their screen is the best. Some use leds, some use lcds some use different methods of back lights some claim extra pixels of another colour to make pictures look more real and all sorts of other combinations. I suggested that get the one that looks the best for your budget. Check...

Copying files from Humax PVR by Bob[_12_]
The PVR is a Humax PVR Fox T2 and there are a number of programmes on it that I wish to keep for posterity. I tried to copy them to a Seagate USB drive but whilst it 'saw' the drive it would not write the files to it as the format was 'not compatible'. The drive is Seagate is NTFS format and readable/writable through Windows and Linux OSs so what format do I need, please, to copy files to...

Problems with iPlayer/Handbrake/Humax by Davey
I am having trouble producing a subtitled version of a BBC programme, which works on my Humax HDR Fox T2, with Customised Firmaware. I download a file from the BBC, with subtitles, with get-iplayer. I then have two files, one an .mp4, the other an .srt. Fine. I then use Handbrake, the accepted programme to convert files, and it produces a file .m4v. This should work when copied to the PVR. But...

I have a central speaker as a lot of dialogue goes there and it gets lost if one relies on the front left/right speakers. I have a NEET HDMI switcher and it produdes sound from that central speaker - as well as those at the sides and through the sub woofer. I...

MSF radio clocks. by Ian Field
The least reliable MSF clock did what it was supposed to when the clocks went back - so reception conditions must be good ATM. Retuned the PVR - now have all the channels where they should be.

Way OT - F1 and Valtteri Bottas by David[_14_]
Well, I have been watching F1 on a digital TV :-) There has been a load of excitement over the race for the F1 championship (resolved in Mexico). Lewis Hamilton again. Valtteri Bottas seems to have been completely ignored. He is 15 points behind Sebastian Vettel with 2 races to go. He gained 8 points in the last race.

Virgin Tivo - how many versions? by David[_14_]
Following on from streaming problems with iPlayer on our Samsung Tivo box, it occurred to me to look and see if there was a newer version of the hardware. Just in case the poor streaming was a hardware issue. http://www.virginmedia.com/shop/tv/set-top-boxes-and-apps.html shows a TV V6 box powered by Tivo. "Say hello to the Virgin TV V6 box, powered by TiVo® – our smallest, smartest,...
