Picture freezing - any ideas by Paul Grayson
"Rob Kirton" wrote in message ... I checked out post code for availability, purchased a Grundig GDT2000 Freeview set top box this morning, and had an aerial guy install new high gain aerial, and new run of twin screened coax. So far so good. However the BBC Channels are "freezing". ITV, Sky and other...

AverMedia AVerTV DVB-T card - screen size issue on BBC2 by David van Kemenade
BBC Channels (and Channel 5, I believe) always broadcast in "16:9 mode". 4:3 programmes appear in the centre of this 16:9 frame. An AFD flag is sent to tell the set-top box what to do with the picture. For example if you have a 4:3 TV, the STB is supposed to "zoom in" to the picture so that you lose the black bands on either side of the 4:3 picture in the centre. Apparently the AverMedia software...

Rigger's Diary by Wrightsaerials
Paul came in yesterday and told me about his customer in the next village. Apparently the message 'No satellite signal is being received' appeared on his TV, so he went out and bought a new TV set! He bought a widescreen, but because it had to fit in the fancy cabinet the new set was actually quite a small screen. The living room being huge even the old set hadn't really been big enough, so the...

Pace Twin by Edward Wohlman
At the moment it's the only option for recording programs that don't appear in the Now&Next EPG. Press the timer events button, it looks like a clock, just underneath the number buttons. Then you have to press the record button to create a new event. Set the channel, start and end times and any reapeat options. Then OK to confirm. The event will be added to the event list. This is covered on...

Pace DTVA by Simon Heather
I've just picked up a new DTVA from Argos and it is the old style one but it does have a quite recent software version 1.9.48 from Feb-03. I've noticed however that it gives a signal quality level of only around 35-38% as opposed to 80-90% for my other Pace DTVA (software version 1.9.13) - the picture quality is perfect on all channels but I don't understand why it should report such a different...

One4All Signiture Line 4in1 + Pace Twin by Edward Wohlman
How would I go about getting these to work together. Do I just need to put a code in or does it have to be reprogrammed? If it is a code, does anyone know what it is? If it is reprogramming how do I go about doing that? Thanks Edward

What Set-top boxes have DABS or digi out? by Andy Evans
I need the freeview TV channels, but I'd also like to listen to radio stations in the best audio sound, and I already have a good DAC. What's the difference in sound and stations between DABS and digi out of a set-top box? Is the Nokia Mediamaster the only box with digital out? === Andy Evans === Visit our Website:- http://www.artsandmedia.com Audio, music and health pages and interesting...

Logo on digital radios with PACE by RaZz
"DAB sounds worse than FM" wrote in message ... RMM wrote: I've just switched through the radio stations and for the first time there's no logos. Is this by popular demand due to possible screen 'burn', or is it a temporary glitch? I hope the former, natch. Pace don't sell DAB receivers, so you'll...

Dam Pace Twin! by Edward Holt
I was looking forward to Straw Dogs on Channel 4 last night and I know I set up the timer for this on the Twin. It didn't record it and the timer event has disappeared from the schedule (that verifies that I didn't input the wrong time or date). I've heard of others complaining about lost recordings before but never really experienced them - now I have.

Philips DTR 1500 by Talin
Anyone bought one of the new Philips DTR 1500 boxes? If so, please can you give your opinions on it and advise how well it compares to the setpal boxes (like the Daewoo)? I borrowed a friend's Grundig box and it worked reasonably well. Had all the channels, etc. Will the Philips box work just as well, signal-wise (or better)? Thanks in advance for any help. -Talin
