Query on freesat by Woody[_5_]
Can anyone tell me, will a Sky HD box show the FTA and FTV HD channels on a Freesat-from-Sky card (or its HD equivalent) without having to pay a Sky subscription? My elderly F-in-L lives in an area of Sheffield where he can only get Freeview Lite, so I fixed him up with a s/h Sky box and F-f-S card. He is very happy with it but tends to watch some of the less glorious channels - Thomas Cook...

Saint John Vianney 8-19-71 by [email protected]
St. John Vianney says, "Man forgets the purpose of life. It is the sanctification of the Soul; the Goal, Sainthood. Children are not being taught this type of love. It is being skimmed over, omitted, and cast aside with human nature involvement. Also, satan is using mankind in many ways. He is diverting him from truth, God's Way." REVELATION DELIVERED THROUGH FRANCES M. KLUG ON AUGUST...

Have the BBC screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? by Ian Jackson[_2_]
Is it just me, or have the BBC well and truly screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? Apparently, from 26 September, you cannot download anything without first installing their iPlayer Downloads program. You seem to have no option than to download a massive mp4 file (one hour being around 700MB, which takes for ever and a day on a 1.5Mb/s feed). To add insult to injury, some reason the mp4...

4G interference by Bill Wright[_2_]
In Rotherham we are now getting a lot of problems with 4G overloading the communal systems. Filters are working except for the systems using ch60. So far we've been able to take these off Belmont and put them on Emley or Crosspool. Bill

Only watching BBC iplayer by j brooks
After their son left home recently and went to live with his girlfriend, the parents practically never watch tv and they dont even watch BBC for the news since they think its only suitable for Guardian Readers. If they do ever want to watch BBC its only on iplayer after someone has recommended something to them. Then they plug a laptop into the tv to watch the iplayer recording on the...

Just typical by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was facing a steel wallbox, about 500 x 600 x 250mm. In the box, screwed to the left side, was a diecast housing which contained some relays and a fuse. A long process of elimination had convinced me that the fuse must have blown. I say long because of access problems to both the input and output circuits of the box. The diecast box was one of those that have six little countersunk machine...

Extended TV Warranty not issued. by Derek F[_3_]
I may have posted here on this subject previously but it is more ongoing than mysterious bleeps night and morning:-) I bought a TV on line from House of Fraser in July of last year. It was advertised as having a five year extended warranty. I could have bought the set from other on line companies for up to 40 less but for some reason I did not follow my normal way. The warranty did not...

BBC TV rubbish sound levels and subtitles by Ian Jackson[_2_]
I'm just watching BBC1's 'Points of View', and one complaint dealt with was the sudden changes of sound levels between programmes - and particularly during the trailers. The response was essentially that there is a difference between amplitude and perceived loudness - and it's very difficult to get things right. Apparently new technology which will improve things is being tested, but it will...

Quest 4:3 by Dave Saville[_2_]
The last couple of nights viewing via my Topfield 5800, Quest has displayed in squashed 4:3. Forcing the TV wide sticks until you change channel and back when it reverts to 4:3. Some of the ads display 16:9 but the progs switch back to squashed 4:3. All other channels are switching correctly. Anyone else? -- Regards Dave Saville
