Top-up TV by Zach
When will this pair stop sending out misleading press statements DEAD VAN CHIC (david chance) AT SWINE (ian west) All they have done is confuse people, how can you fit 10 more channels into 2 multiplexs? (MuxA/2) Also, are they going to rely on an honesty system where people send in donations rather than encrypt the 'new?' channels.

Crystal Palace + DTT signal "quality" readings on STB by Nick
Should I be surprised that just 12 miles from Crystal Palace (in Bexley, DA5) I get *very* strong and virtually perfect analogue reception, but using a decent 18-element Grp A aerial I'm getting readings of just 35% signal strength and approx 60% signal quality? Occasional signal break-up in bad weather when signal quality goes down to around 50%. A wideband aerial to Bluebell Hill, around 18...

channel 66 by Pendragon
Hi, I have recently installed a Goodmans FV unit with an 18 element antenna. The result on the day and upto last weekend has been good. Since the high winds however the channels broadcast on Ch66 (ITV etc) have been breaking up badly. The signal strength indicator on the good channels is stable but for Ch66 is pretty flakey. Can someone kindly give us a clue how this might happen and what I

Outdoor aerial by Ian
Hello people, We've got an outdoor aerial which has been there for at least 20 years. Up until a few weeks ago it was fine for watching freeview on Sony IDTV and also piped into an old ONDigital box. Since a gust of wind knocked it out of its bracket, we reattached it but we can't get about half of the channels. Our indoor aerial with a panasonic stb works fine.

Tv Travel Shop dies - what now? by John James
Is it the first Freeview channel to end? I think so.And not before time. But what's to replace it. There seems to be little rush to fill this or the other (CBM) channel or 2 still going begging. What channels are Topup TV planning to use - buy out the shopping channels? I'd prefer to pay a few quid for half watchable Tv rather than shopping any day.

Beware Argos Electronic SCART box by Andy Mackie
If anyone is considering buying the "Masterplug Electronic SCART Selector" from Argos, then don't! It simply doesn't work as advertised, and does not automatically switch to the last device switched on. It's this one: http://tinyurl.com/2ko73 (stock no. 534/3047). If I am watching device A, then switch on device B, automatic switching does not occur. Only if you switch device A off, will it then...

Multi Region DVD gives B&W/Colour by Damian
Can anyone point me in the direction of the right answer please. I bought modified Sony DAV S550 DVD system, modified by the supplier to play multi-region DVD's. Recently, I got my hands on a Region 1 NTSC DVD. The result was an alternating B&W / Colour image, changing about every 1 second. Sound was perfect. Some slight vertical banding on the B&W image. (The DVD played perfectly on a friend's...

Freeview and that Red Button by Matti Lamprhey
When I watch a programme like _Question Time_, "digital viewers" are invited to "vote by pressing the red button". Surely this requires a phone line to be hooked up to the system, and this won't be available on Freeview? Or am I missing something? Matti

Rigger's Diary - helpful tip by Bill
When using a staple gun try to keep your mind on the job. In particular be careful not to staple your finger to the skirting board. This is extremely painful and may cause blood to stain the customer's carpet. As you will be fixed to the wall you may be unable to reach your toolbox, and asking the customer to pass you a pair of pliers could alert them to the fact that something is wrong. Bill...

Scrambled images only on ITV by Pendragon
Well channel 66 to more exact. A few week ago following the advice of a TV eng chum I installed my 18 element antenna and got my Goodmans Freeview unit to work OK. And I was pleasently surprised by the picture. However this weekend in the high winds the TV channels broadcast on channel 66 were pants. All the other TV channels were OK. The signal indication bar shown by pressing the i function...

CorelDraw 8 - off topic by Bill
Using this program for the first time yesterday I was bemused to find that if I opened a file where the page border had been set to be 'not visible' I could not make it visible. The help file just leads down a blind alley. Don't suppose anyone can help? Bill http://www.wrightsaerials.tv/index.html

Channel 4 on DTT by Richard Watkinson
Two features that I have not seen mentioned in this Newsgroup except when 4 text was on trial. 1. Teletext on 4 Although Channel 4 had limited text support in the ITV Digital days this has now been very much improved with an MHEG digital 'ceefax' type service linked with the 4-Text channel 50. When watching Channel 4 press text. If nothing happens press text

Log Periodics by Mat Overton
On a hill in Bradford with a cheapo set top aerial and a portable tv in the bedroom, I can get perfect pictures from Tyne Tees at Bilsdale better than my recommended amplified high gain aerial! Maybe with a bitta-wet string I can get Crystal Palace.... Anyone? ;)
