Does anyone have any first hand experience of a progressive scan DVD player in the UK on PAL connected to a display device such as...

Digital TV Picture Break Up by mlp
Just wondering do all free to air dtv boxes suffer from picture break up regularly. I have an old On Digital Pioneer Box and this seem to exhibit this a lot - the sound is an occasional problem but usually it's just the picture that breaks up. Would this be likely to be solved with a newer freeview box? TIA Marcel

Belmont unwatchable last night by Tim Mitchell
It's probably the weather, but around 10pm last night the signal from Belmont became almost totally unwatchable in Hull, both analogue (very snowy, wavery rolling pictures) and digital (normally 90% signal, box reporting no signal). Curiously the only channel which was still watchable on both analogue and digital was C5, which is normally the worst quality. I gave up and went to read a...

You & Yours on FTV collapse by Jomtien
(Simon Gardner) wrote: Today's 'You and Yours' on the collapse of FTV from satellite was not useful. One repeated factual error was to claim the BBC alone paid for FTV previously - thus ignoring the financial contributions of C4 and C5. A shame that the BBC spokesman didn't give more emphasis to the high cost of encryption services and the way that Sky alone determine...

Sky Digital E4+1 strange problem by luap bopper
Hi People I have a standard 4:3 TV and digibox set to letterbox format so "widescreen" programming on Sky digital is displayed with the requisite black borders on top and bottom. No problem up until E4+1 started. All usual channels fine but e4+1 has strange very narrow black and white blocks at the very top left edge of letterboxed image. Not a major problem but annoying as E4 (and all...

onDigital box Vs Freeview box by S
"Some bloke" wrote in message ... "S" wrote Is there a compelling reason not to get an old onDigital Box? Yes, many. They're old, slow, prone to crash, without any prospects of software upgrades or other support. Do yourself a favour and buy a new box. I recommend the SetPal, personally.
