tv aerial masts by Stephen[_7_]
Hello, I am some distance from the tv transmitter, so I may need a masthead amp. I can get into the loft to install an aerial but I'm not brave enough to go on the outside and put an aerial at height. Considering that my signal may already be weak, is it worth trying to DIY an aerial in the loft, or should I just pay someone to fit an external one?

Red Button Puzzle by Davey
The Red Button service is asking me to test my Cash Machine Knowledge. It credits Getty Images and AndSim (?) for the images. But it fails to explain what images, and how to take the test. Most curious. -- Davey.

Audio return channel by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I have a Panasonic TX-55CX680B TV and Onkyo AV TX-SR252 receiver connected via HDMI. If I change the TV's volume with its remote control with the AV receiver off, the on-screen display shows "Volume" with a sliding scale and volume level number which changes, increasing or decreasing as the sound level increases or decreases. If I have the AV receiver on, and use its remote control to...

CorelDraw 4 by Bill Wright[_3_]
I don't suppose anyone is running this old program? If you are, could you do me a favour? I have five small version 4 files that I need to look at. If someone could convert them to pdfs or jpgs that would be great. Actually cdr v5, 6, 7, and 8 would open them, come to think. I converted dozens of files from v2 to v4 and then about a thousand from v4 to v8, which v12 and 17 will open, but I...

Why don't they... by Brian Gaff
Instead of messing about with radio stations tacked on to different freeview multiplexes, simply build one in each area with all the radio stations only on it. Also, in my view in these times of hd and surround sound, the minimum we should expect should be stereo on radio stations in my view. I mean even on DAB BBC4x is in mono but stereo on the web and freeview, whiile some if not most of...

The Terminator - I'll not be back by Dan[_3_]
I recently signed up with Virgin Media for 100Mb broadband, taking phone & their freeview TV package. I duly cancelled the lot after finding I was in an oversold area making the broadband unusable at peak times. Anyway, they sent me a box to return their kit which had a note giving instructions on how to unplug it all etc. At the end it said IMPORTANT! pull (not unscrew) the cable from the...

Help needed with smart TV by Roger Mills[_2_]
Just bought a Samsung 49KU6470 smart TV, which seems to work pretty well, and the picture and sound are quite good. But there are a couple of issues which I can't get my head around. 1. Voice commands. My set understands voice commands but the manual - even the downloaded one, let along the quick start guide which came with the set - only has very cursory information. Nowhere can I find a...

wolfbane - problems? by David[_14_]
A long time since I last used wolfbane to point an aerial but as I'm at a campsite and all the aerials seem to be pointing in different directions with different vertical/horizontal alignments I thought I would give it a go. Site is there but doesn't load on my Android tablet. The link is http://www.wolfbane.net/cgi-bin/tvd.exe? from a Google search.

Parliamentary mathematician needed by Brian Gaff
No they don't they are probably in the pub. They have what is called a division. In my view this need to be changed. There should be free annon votes just like we have in the elections. Seems to me that a lot of those who don't want to be pinned down are mysteriously missing when a contentious vote takes place. Brian

Rattle by Brian Gaff
I notice that my faithful aerial in the loft is rattling when the wind blows through the tiles. No sign of any issues as yet, but maybe the local wildlife have learned how to use screwdrivers. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian Gaff...

Labgear Distribution Amp by Rob Brewer
Hi I have been repairing a Labgear MSA282 distribution amp (replaced faulty PSU Cap) and I noticed there are a couple of jumpers which seem to be associated with the VHF input connector. They are marked "Wideband" and "VHF". I intend to use this amp with a combined VHF/DAB aerial but I'm not sure which is the best position for these jumpers. Does anyone know what the jumpers are for and...

Heard at the seaside by James Heaton
I really wish I 'd heard the end of this conversation... As I was getting into my car at Bridlington last weekend (picked a good weekend to be in E Yorks!) I heard the following from a passing dog walker: Yeah we had a really good week at the car boot, we even sold that half telly I had knocking around... Any ideas?

The usual cocked up lines and dodgy audio was very well represented in the election coverage. So I rest my case. Nothing has been improved by new technology from tithe 1960s coverage of elections. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian Gaff...

Election pains by Brian Gaff
So then all radio and tv will no doubt be taken up with over hyped stuff tonight after 10 pm. Despite modern technology in use one still tends to get the old we cannot reach xx at the moment or people talking miles away into dodgy pa systems and all the other chaotic things we used to have way back in the 60s. Tech may have changed but the implementation of good practice by lay people has...

Bressay Transmitter by Tweed[_3_]
I'm currently in Lerwick. I'm curious as to why the local transmitter, Bressay, appears to be vertically polarised. I thought this was usually reserved for low power relay stations.
