TOT Petrol generators by Dave Saville[_2_]
Having a disabled wife and the dire predictions of coming power outages this winter I thought I might get a petrol genny to keep the gas fired CH going and maybe the deep freeze. I realise it would be a manualy change over. Any recomendations? I guess the startup current of a CH pump and freezer is not much. TIA --

Freeview and internet programs on EPG. by David[_9_]
My SD Freeview on its menu has quite a few stations saying they need a HD TV. I have an STB that is HD Freeview if I add an internet connection to it are these stations operational? The STB also has something called zero TV which download over night. Regards David

Dynamic TV pictures by Brian Gaff
Now this was a conversation with a sighted person about a week ago. He pointed out that many TVs like Sony in the analogue days had a vast dynamic range on the picture. The example he gave was of a spotlight momentarily dazzling the camera also dazzled the viewer on a good quality transmission, but he claims, no lcd seems to do more than give a kind of flat medium bright effect on such...

Travel channel on freeview by Brian Gaff
So one might expect them to at least make sure that anything they are broadcasting is finished by the time their slot closes? No apparently they had a program on about a Florida airport last night and when their personal witching hour arrived, it just went away in the middle of an item. Is there no pride or attention to detail any more? Brian

LG 42" LCD TV Screen Problem by Enrie Membership
Hi Does anyone know if modern large screen LCD TV's have a glass or plastic screen in front of the LCD panel? My 42" LG has strange markings on the screen. It's as if dust has got in the screen causing the strange marks/shadows. These marks are NOT on the surface of the screen. Please see picture below:

Yet another Freesat query - but a problem this tme. by Woody[_5_]
Thanks all for your input - everything works - ish. My F-in-L's old Sky box (Amstrad DRX400 or something like that) shows signal strength of about 80% and quality of 70% and never has a problem. I have just about the same levels here on the same type of box and I'm using a Zone 2 dish! When he lost his signal the other week (dish dropped due to flying ****ehawks sitting on the LNB) I...

Sky viewing card by Ian Jackson[_2_]
I've been given a Sky Thompson HD STB, and it works fine without any card as an SD Freesat receiver. However, it won't allow me to tune to the out-of-region ITV channels etc (like you can on a free-to-air satellite receiver), and seems to be locked to the ITV region where it was used a 'proper' Sky box. My question is, will a viewing card allow it to work unrestricted as a FTA STB (and with...

Aerial wobblies? by Brian Gaff
With the winds down here in the south, I'd imagine quite a lot of people will be in need of an aerial soon as the weather calms. I was told quite a few of the outside ones around here were swinging wildly last night. I do wonder why they need to be outside round here though.

Reduced picture quality on recordings by Derek F[_4_]
We have a Humax 9200T PVR (circa 2008) and also a Toshiba RD-XV48DTKB. I have never been all that happy with the Toshiba recording quality to HD now the Humax recordings are beginning to look rather like a twice copied VCR tape. Viewing directly from either machine the picture is still good. What reason for the loss of picture quality? Derek.

Another Freesat from Sky query by Woody[_5_]
I asked on here a few weeks ago if a Sky HD card with F-f-S viewing card would get the HD channels, to which of course the answer was yes. Now another two questions: I have the option of a second room Sky HD box that does not have recording capabilities (we don't need.) (a) Will that box work stand-alone without the main box and (b) does it need a viewing card of its own (indeed does it...

LNB bracket for Sky Zone 2 dish by David.WE.Roberts
I've found out what was wrong with the satellite dish. The clamp on the bracket (at the end of the arm) that screws down to hold the quad LNB in place is broken - the plastic pivot bit on the opposite side to the screw has snapped. I an looking for a replacement but not doing too well. The nearest thing I have found so far is

Slightly OT - Samasung tablet and video by Jonathan[_2_]
I asked recently about connecting my Samsung Galaxy Tab2 to my Sony Bravia TV and with your help this has now been achieved. I have a video that I bought using the Samsung Video Hub app. I can watch this on the tablet and it is definitely downloaded because it runs with the Wi-Fi off. The TV cannot find it when I connect. When I search for a file with the name of the video on the tablet I cannot...
