freeview reception by john
I just checked the coverage detail for my area on dtg.org.uk, and although I maybe have to reposition my aerial (Transmitter choices are Mendips or Oxford), many channels are still not available (specifically BBC four and BBC radio 6. Is it just a case of waiting until these channels are available on local transmitters? Is there anywhere I can check when this is likely to change? Also various...

White Anglo-Saxon Protestants by Wrightsaerials
Yesterday Albert said, "I know you keep hitting the loganberrys when you think no-one's watching. Well, just look out for the wasps." Today I came home, climbed wearly out of the van and drifted across to the seductive loganberry area. Without looking I popped the first firm luscious fruit into my quivering receptive mouth. I was immediately aware that the loganberry was furry and was wriggling....

Freeview Reception in Chatham, Kent by Paul Marsh
If your aerial is looking at Bluebell Hill your chances of success are high; the relay station on the Great Lines does not carry DTTV. I don't know what the signal strength from Crystal Palace is like around here, and you may also have noticed some aerials pointing at Dover and Sudbury. Paul "Rob" wrote in message

will Philips DVD recorder control telewest cable box? by keith
I have telewest digital TV, supplied on a PACE di4000 digital cable box. But there's no way to switch channels for timed recordings. However , the Philips do DVD recorders, where the manual talks of using something called guide+ or guide plus , and an IR blaster to control a cable box. Has anyone done this and can confirm it's possible? (I'm a bit sceptical about how the philips manual says...

Dead Ringers by David van Kemenade
Hi, I've made the grave mistake of unintentionally deleting the first episode from the current series of Dead Ringers (TX BBC2 7/7, rpt. 13/7) from my hard disk. Is there anyone who happens to have a digital recording of this and who is happy for me to have a copy of it? Thanks, David

Pace Twin freezes by Roger Wilmut
Apart from the failed recordings problem (which seems better if the box is on at the start of the recording) I have identified three specific types of freeze. Oddly, these seem limited to the BBC channels. Type 1: the picture freezes for about 1 second then runs rapidly through the missing second to catch up. Quality remains the same. Sound unaffected. Type 2: Picture jumps ahead about 1...
