Question about digital tv signal 'extra' data by Raff
I understand that digital tv signals are mpeg2 standard (same as dvd), but how and where in this signal is other 'extra' information stored e.g. the programme name, time, whether it is an advert etc? Is there a good source for getting the actual format of digital tv broadcasts beyond the standard mpeg2 stuff? Thanks.

Hello I've got a sky guy coming round on Thursday to install sky digital. I've got a feeling some trees may be in the way of the dish to satellite line. Does anyone know the exact angel (left to right) and levitation (up and down) the dish needs to be? many thanks daniel

More from Media...

Stupid question by Bilbo Baggins
I am now going to make an arse of myself - but what the hell. I am just in the process of purchasing my first widescreen tv. My colleague at work says that analogue tv cannot receive widescreen broadcasts and to make the most use of my tv I need to buy a freeview box. I am assuming that this is bull because most of the programs I currently watch on the 5 standard channels on my Wsquare" tv...

Are German and English televisions compatible ? by nws
Hello all, I found out that I can buy in Germany the Hauppauge Dec3000 which will enable me to view Hotbird and also to have a usb connection for high quality recordings on the pc. My only question is if German televisions are identical to UK televisions, otherwise it will only work on the computer in the UK but not on the TV, in which case it would not be any better than the wintv nova, which...

TV-Out on PC Video Adapters by Keith Bailey
What is the perceived wisdom on the best TV-out performance from PC video cards? In particular, I am looking for proper 16:9 rendition & good quality. I know that, in general, TV-out is compromise from most video cards & that the best way to go is a standalone hardware MPEG2 decoder such as the XCard from Sigma Designs or Creative's Encore DXR. However, I'm not sure how this would work when...

Satellite system by Ross
In message , billhum writes A local store is advertising a satellite receiver and shows the icon of the Astra and the Eutelsat satellites. It is described as an "analogue" device. Could someone tell me what I should receive on this and is it worth buying? Thanks.

I'll add details to http://www.radioandtelly.co.uk/freeview_goodmans.html as soon...

TV Advice by Andrew
Hope this is not OT for this group - if so please advise either web link or correct NG I am looking to buy a digital TV and having previously had a good experience with a Sony I thought I'd stick with the brand. In the shop I thought that the 100Hz gave a better picture than the 50HZ version - smoother tonality to my eyes, although perhaps it had a better signal. The sales guy then asked if I...
