Mobile satellite by Stuart Turrell
I would like to have a satellite dish for our caravan, only a cheap thing that picks up astra 28.2. I will use my current digibox, and will be in the south of england. I used to know a place that about 7 or 8 years ago sold satellites that simply stuck to the side of your caravan/boat, and that is what i am after. Any ideas please? Stuart

Some simple questions... by Simon
Hi, I know absolutely nothing at all about digital TV so if these questions are silly, please keep your laughter in private :-) (1) I have just got a Sony NX200 TV (a 'free' FQ75 upgrade from Sony) and it has a built in digital decoder. Do I simply need to plug in an aerial to receive Freeview or is there more to it than that? (2) Is there such a thing as a 'do it all' aerial or will I...

Lidl Satellite system by dufus
I have fitted a few of these systems for unsuspecting customers and they have a digital disque badge on the front. People are mislead thinking they are digital receivers, where as the digital is referring to the disque part(lnb switching) and a few have returned them to get there money back. Saying that it's probably worth that for the dish, so! You get what you pay for!

1950s ITV converter boxes by Wrightsaerials
My granny always used to call it 'ITA'. Was that the name they used at the start? (I know ITA was Independent Television Authority but was this the 'brand' name also?) It was usually called 'ITV' when I joined TWW in 1958. Some of our customers used to call ITV 'ITN'. Bill

Rigger's Diary: I could have died (again) by Andrew @ Home
Sorry for jumping in, but this reminded me of a tale about one of my colleagues in Newcastle, He had built up a rapport with an old lady and her family over a couple of years. Any products they purchased were delivered outside normal hours and often on his way home, on each occasion whilst installing the equipment the old lady would provide him with a mug of coffee and a bowl of nuts (peanuts,...

Pace DTVA sudden complete loss of signal by Dave Kahn
Pace DTVA box has been working perfectly for over a year. Suddenly there is no signal at all. The menus still work fine but no channels are found. I tried re-scanning, I tried resetting to factory settings, and I tried unplugging the unit from the mains and reconnecting it. No change.
