Sony VTX-D800U update by Agamemnon
A couple of months ago Sony were saying that the software update for the VTX-D800U would be going ahead this week but now all information concerning the date of the update has disappeared from their web site and I have not received any notice of an update in progress from by STB. Have Sony not managed to book a slot yet. http://www.npe.sony.co.uk/news.html

Warning! - Another Pace Twin Problem - Read this if you have one by Java Jive
I refer to this weekend's changeover from British Summer Time ... 1) I had to put the Pace back manually 2) All the times in all the events already programmed in were then an hour early; I didn't notice this and recorded some wrong items, then had to go through the entire events list altering each one manually. Jeez! This is the final straw for me. I'm going to take it back as not...

Bit of advice needed by Andy B
Hi, Over the last week or so, the picture on my Panasonic DSB30 has been freezing and then showing a message of "No satellite signal is being received". I am aware of the panafix2d and have had it successfully installed for a few months. I did a bit of google research and I borrowed my mums digibox from downstairs (we have the second box deal). Hers is a pace box. It had the same problem on my...

Daft question on aerial polarisation by Laurie Townsend
I'm not very savvy on wireless technicalities, but good at working things out by similarities, and I was wondering which way the elements on a receiving aerial should go for best reception from a polarised transmission, and I can argue a good reason for each direction, so would someone please just tell me ... If the transmitter is vertically polarised, should the elements be a) Vertical b)...

Teristrial Digital TV Frequencies! by Bill
When I was a lad DXing in the sixties, Taccy on B3H and Sutton Coldfield on B4V used to come in regularly on the simple X array I usd for SpE reception. Quite weak mostly, but useful as markers for calibrating tuning scales. Ah but where you lived you weren't saturated with Holme Moss on ch2 like what we was. However, I could receive Sutton C consistently at my parent's house. Dad was...

freeveiw indoor aerial by Bigfred
I am presently receiving digital TV with a freeview box and indoor aerial this makes me sceptical about forking out money for an expensive outdoor digital aerial, however I do get block interference on channel 4 and channel 5.Would it be possible to improve the signal by purchasing a better indoor aerial perhaps with a booster amplifier. Hope you can see my logic in this as I have been quoted...

Freeview is better than Analogue even with a poor aerial by zzapper
Hi, I hesitated to get Freeview for a year, because I feared that I'd have to pay for a new aerial because C5 was very poor, c4 poor, only BBCs & ITV1 were any good on the old analogue. Anyway I finally plunged and bought the Phillips 99 decoder DTR1500 from Tesco. The Freeview pictures are perfect, I seem to have everything but the ITVs & C4, which I must still view on Analogue (via the...

Perpetual motion? by Bill
Tonight as I sat in the office Hil came in with the bulb out of the oven. Would I look in the CPC book and find her a new one? The bulb is a 25W mini screw fitting. The nearest one in the CPC book is on page 1464, but the glass envelope on our old bulb is slightly thinner and longer. Anyway, I had the old bulb resting between the pages of the open catalogue as I looked for the replacement, and I...
