Clever telly and broken audio pre-amp by Bill Wright[_2_]
I switched on my lovely big Sony telly and a strange message appeared. 'Searching for external loudspeakers'. Never seen that before. When the telly came on there was no sound. It's set up for its own speakers to be muted. It turned out that the audio pre-amp (a Rotel RC850) had failed. We've recently had two power cuts, plus the RCD firing due to a faulty kettle. For the time being I've...

Can you do better than Boris? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
In article , Brian Gaff wrote: Well, what the heck do these questions have to do with running an administration? About as little as Boris's own comments re IQ have to do with anything. Except perhaps for making the point that if what he said is accepted, then he wouldn't have the job of Mayor. Although maybe it amused voters to choose...

Film 4 by Dickie mint[_2_]
Firstly, my excuse is I never watch it! An acquaintance reports he can no longer get Film 4 on Freeview channel 15. Nor can I, on checking via a Humax 9200, getting the encrypted or unavailable message. Has it changed mux, got encrypted, or just got rehashed in the navigation tables? Richard

Getting my Rotel fixed by Bill Wright[_2_]
Years ago when one of the Rotel power amps died I asked Eddie to fix it, and he did, very cheaply. I've known Eddie since the late 1960s, when he was an engineer for a local TV firm, Vallances, and I was a teenage aerial rigger. During the early 70s Eddie became the service manager, then Vallences were taken over by Rumbellows, who transferred all the rental servicing to far-away Leeds....

News junky by Pinnerite[_2_]
Because I am a bit of a news junky, I flip between the four news services each morning. It's great to have clear HD images on our new 55 inch monster but I can no longer easily flip between all four channels because RT has not joined the BBC, Sky and Al Jazerra. Some people are never satisfied. :) -- ___________________________________________________ Mageia 3 for x86_64, Kernel:

TOT Caravaning by Dave Saville[_2_]
A good friend has bought a caravan. He needs cheering up. Many years ago one Michael Green wrote a series of funny books entitiled "The Art of Coarse Golf/Acting/Rugby" etc.. He never did one about caravaning, but anyone know of a humourous book about caravaning in similar vein? TIA -- Regards Dave Saville

Freeview glitches yesterday evening. by Brian Gaff
Did not seem to be any particular channel but the odd word was just cut out, even on the just background sound. Not my end as aerial in loft, so suspect the weater might have been involved at some point. Physically, how do the signals get to Crystal Palace? over microwave links or by cable systems and what might be common to most. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is ...

Rather than trying to describe it in detail, I ask you to view this page: http://www.clusterphone.com/sale.htm I only need a few committed individuals to ensure all this stuff finds a good home. If I can gather enough expressions of interest I...
