Do LED bulbs interfere with DAB radio? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
In article , Scott wrote: There was no problem when the transformer was running halogen bulbs. Can the interference be passed backwards through the transformer into the mains? Yes, that may happen. Can't say more due to lack of detailed information. As the lights nearest the radio cause the greatest problem and

News hand wringing. by Brian Gaff
I'm not normally annoyed by news, but the recent tendency to spin the Syria problem into some kind of a crime is starting to annoy me now. War as what happens when two sides cannot agree to live together and compromise.War kills people regardless of who they are whether they are kind to their mothers etc. maybe we need to be reminded what war is or we will just sanitise things like the us...

Will the Beeb change to HTML5 ? by Phi
Microsoft says that Flash content won't even be loaded, "improving performance, battery life, and security." If you frequent a site that relies on the feature, don't worry, as you'll still be able to enable it on-demand. When visiting a page that requires it, you'll be given the option to either allow it once, or...

OT - embarrassing admission by Geoff Pearson
I confess - I've been reading news groups on Windows LiveMail 2011 - not a proper news reader. I don't like to reply to posts because it doesn't insert the proper signs. But now I've confessed I feel better and may change my ways. I use news.individual.net as my news server. Which reader do chaps/chapesses use/recommend? Geoff

Satellite PVR refused to record Penguin Post Office in HD by Ian Jackson[_6_]
This afternoon, I was having a cup of tea, and 'The Penguin Post Office' happened to be on BBC2 HD (watching it live through my Manhattan satellite PVR, type Plaza HDR-S). I finished my tea, and had to go - but as I also wanted to see the end, I pressed the record button. A few seconds later, a 'Record failed' message appeared. I tried several times to record - even erasing each time what...

So what are they? by Brian Gaff
I've just heard an advert, one of those annoying ones that assumes everybody knows what its about? It was for a shop selling 'Android TVs' as they put it. Now to me Android is the operating system google wrote for smart phones. If indeed real tvs are now using it, does this mean that the voice on android is going to be usable in the tv menus, if so, then bring it on, but somehow I suspect...

tomtom ONE by Brian Gaff
OK it depends on the processor architecture and how they access memory. Obviously there is a limit on older processors, say 16bit of address space. If they use say a 32 bit or 64 bit processor then larger lumps of memory are addressable at the sametime. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...

Old friends by Steve Thackery[_4_]
Colleagues, None of you will remember me, but several years ago I was a fan and occasional contributor to this august group. When I moved house it was one of many things in my life that I left behind, especially as my ISP stopped providing a usenet server. Having need to put some money an aerial installer's way I immediately thought of you folks, and after much messing about I've found a...

Beware low sat dishes. by Brian Gaff
Just heard a story that sounds a bit, um unlikely to me on one of those local stations nobody listens to except by accident. Apparently during the summer a neighbour turned their extension flat roof into a playground for the kids complete with fence, paddling pool and trampoline ( are they trying to kill their children?). However the crux of the story was that next doors flat roof had the...

3D glasses for Sony TV? by Kenny
Sony branded TDG-BT500A are nearly 50 per single pair. Cheaper brands of TDG-BT500A can be bought on Amazon or Ebay at 27 for 2 pairs. Will there be much difference between them? Kenny Cargill

Do you know I've not missed this channel since it went online, but now I notice that the on air channels are plugging programmes on that channel and more than that making said program a kind of link to one you just watched. if i were a cynic I'd suggest nobody can be arrsed to watch it so they are trying the old trick they use to get you ontheir web site of, if you have been affected by any...

OT You can't win by Bill Wright[_3_]
I sent a Christmas card to an autistic friend. I'm very fond of her but her reactions are sometimes surprising, as she is totally literally minded. Because of her bereavement this year I included a note: "Let's hope for a better 2017'. She received the card and immediately picked up her phone. "There's 23 days left in 2016. Anyone might die."

Clearing out by Pinnerite
We have been gradually clearing out our attic. I am a terrible hoarder. Today I reached a couple of cardboard boxes containing all the built and partly built radios and gadgets that have followed me through my life. I'll bet the tuning capacitor with the 1/4" shaft came from my first crystal set. There are small boards with Hivac numicators on the end, the AM radio with ferrite rod aerial...

Watchmakers' Glasses by Java Jive[_2_]
All this faffing around with modern PCBs has convinced me that a 10/20x hand lens is no longer enough. Does anyone have any experience of buying and using watchmakers' glasses, as for example he http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=watchmaker+glasses If so, bearing in mind that already I use spectacles for close-distance work, what make/model would people recommend?

Stripes on TV by Scott[_2_]
We were talking about this at the office this morning. At one time certain patterns involving stripes were banned on TV because they caused blurring of the picture. Was this an analogue artifact or does it affect digital also? Does it affect HD as well as SD?

Digital drop out. by Brian Gaff
No not some kind of bit hippie, its the tendency for feeds to radio and tv transmitters to be far worse than in the good old analogue days as the word glitch had never been invented. It seems to me listening to freeview radio and dab the momentary drop out sometimes accompanied by a he squeak is pretty common and not the fault of the receiver. Its obviously mostly in the feed as even with...
