Another Pace Twin upgraded- 30 hours storage by Spock

Piping Sky and Freeview around house. by simonbray
Wonder if someone can give me some advice. At the moment, the three TV's in the bedrooms can receive both freeview and sky (the receivers are on the lounge). Unfortunately, the picture is really bad on the 2nd and subsequent TVs. I was goinf to replace all the coax as we are using some which the previous owners left, but we don't know the best way to feed the TVs. The cuerrent setup is:

DVRec and Hauppauge WinTV (USB) software by luap bopper
Hi People I downloaded and trialled DVRec and it pretty much did what it said on the tin, so I am considering purchasing. Now the trial has expired I appear to be unable to record with the standard Hauppauge software. Picture is breaking up, no sound etc.... Has anyone else encountered this? I hope the software hasn't time bombed the Hauppauge software. I used to just use it to record the...

Ferguson FreeView (Cheap one from Currys) by James
Hello all, I bought one of these things before Christmas, it works fine except for the text, when I press the red button nothing happens (It's worked once or twice). But my brother has a Goodman's box, from the same aerial and his works fine. I'm thinking either I have a dodgy box, or my signal strength is not up to scratch,

Pana Digibox CT20 and setting channels by Andy Kirby
I have a CT20 fed by a Unix 52 pointing at Dover about 13 miles away. On my old group C/D aerial I got flaky Mux 1 on Channel 68 despite a signal quality of 9. The other muxes were OK. With the Unix 52 I get rubbish Mux C on 39 with signal quality of 4. The rest are all OK with quality at 9, Mux 1 comes via 45. In summary: C/D aerial: 1/68, 2/61, A/55, B/58, C/57, D/60. Unix 52: 1/45, 2/61,...

DVB sound quality as DISGRACE ! by Agamemnon
It's like listening to a tame Dalek when watching Channel 4 which is the worst ofender. The sound quality of DVB even at 256 Kbps is a DISGRACE ! When are the broadcasters going to stop using the disgraceful MUSICAM codec and start using a better codec like AT&T. Even at the maximum bitrate of 384 Kbps the quality of MUSICAM is unacceptable. I am sick of it. I cant use my surround sound, I cant...

My slant on - Picture or Sound Loss for entire mux - bug with Pace Twin by Moonshine
There is already a reference to the loss of entire mux on the PaceTwin Bug web site... http://www.riscthis.net/pacetwin/bugs.html I've had this occur a couple of time now, particularly with the ITV mux. This is what I discovered the other night... Signal strength is usually fine and the 2 other Freeview boxes in the house never give a problem.

Freeview Complaint paid off? by Paul Woodsford
I live in Cowbridge, S.Wales approx: 8mls from Wenvoe mast which is visible from the roof. Wide Band aerial all Freeview MUX's recieved at 96% strength but quality was 100% for every Channel except 34 and 40 which show ITV channels ( 64QMA ), these varying from 75 to 50% quality. These 2 channels were unwatchable. E-mailed Crown Castle that run the transmitter and complained in writing...

Fusion by Rod
For those that have purchased one of the new Fusion freeview boxes what do you think of them? I'm considering placing an order for the new box with 40gig hard disk. Very tempted by the ability to record 60 hours and set timer up to 7 days in advance. Thanks

BBC News 24 - Aspect Ratio Glitches by aa
I've recently (last couple of weeks or so) spotted the occasional glitch whereby the aspect ratio on this channel incorrectly changes from 16:9 to 4:3 for a few seconds then reverts back to 16:9. Symptoms have been reported to Crown Castle who are investigating further. I've noticed it happening at around 5pm ish. TX in my case is Mendip and receiver Pace / Ondigital (Mk. 1). Anyone else...

Mobile DVB-T Using Least Robust Mode by Steve
See page 13 of: http://www.dvb.org/documents/newsletters/DVB-SCENE-08.pdf (1.0 MB) 64-QAM, code rate = 3/4, 8K subcarriers, low priority hierarchical modulation stream was successfully received at 120 kmh using the latest mobile DVB-T diversity receiver in Sydney. That's 24 Mbps mux capacity isn't it? (equivalent to 125 x 192kbps stations)

Masterplug Gold Plated Scart Lead - A review by Bill
Anyway, I was thinking of the stimulation of the clitoris using the tongue. Known as a fish supper in this neck of the woods. It's no good beating about the bush is it? Ha ha! I was thinking of 'a four of fish and finger pie' which is more technical and digital, and therefore on topic. Yes, I suppose so. Stimulation of the clitoris with the finger is digital

Phillips DTR1500 software fault? by Bill
My customer has a Phillips DTR1500 DTT box. This was originally installed with a Belmont aerial (Gp A), so it found the ch 30 mux. It also found all the Emley Moor muxes, despite the aerial being on Belmont. After a new Emley Moor aerial was fitted the box was put through the 'virgin install' procedure. This worked and ch30 disappeared, but it came back by itself about three hours later....

Remote control for Goodmans GDB2? by Ridwan Hughes
Just got a cheap Goodmans GDB2 freeview box, the remote control that came with it is some universal one, I got the power button working so far but can't get past the setup screen asking what mode I want 4:3 or 16:9 and to press select, only the remote won't do anything but power. What one-for-all remote can I get that will allow me to have full control over the GDB2 box? --
