Automatic VCR timed recording by Mark Johnson
I need to find a better way to record automatically. Here's the story so far: SITUATION 1 I am using a Thomson DTI 1000 digital box. In the manual, it says that you only have to set the timer on the STB if you have a Thomson video recorder, and it will start recording automatically. PROBLEM 1

Poor BBC channels and ITV on sky box by Kawps
Hi, I've got a sky box with no subscription but all this week BBC channels and ITV have been really messed up with blocks, picture freezing and sound popping. I called Sky and they said the BBC have switched frequencies/transponder? And that the box is working fine because C5/C4 and the Sky info channel is fine. Anyone knows how to fix this problem.

How to Make a DVD from a Nebula DigiTV source? by David van Kemenade
"martin dibb" wrote in message ... I have another question though. I presume one selects "MPEG-2 Program (VBR)" from within TMPGenc, selecting "mpeg tools" and a "Simple multiplex"? (As DVD is MPEG-2.) That's right. I have found UleadDVDMF still converts and remultiplexes the file, so obviously TMPGenc is not producing a...

Analog Ch 32 receiving SKY program. by [email protected]
In the course of investigation of interference when watching video tapes, I have isolated the problem to receiving a SKY program on analogue CH 32. The picture is just a little snowy but perfectly viewable. My DTTV pace box and video recorder have been eliminated (unplugged from mains and aerial chain) as the source of the signal. I do not have SKY! The next door neighbour (other half of...

'TMPGEnc DVD Author' Problems with 16:9 & 4:3 ratio by Paul Dundas
"martin dibb" wrote in message ... I have a video recorded with the Nebula-Electronics DigiTV card. The portion I want to record to DVD has an aspect ratio (AR) of 4:3 but a short segment before is 16:9. There's the rub! The initial 16:9 portion is setting the AR for the entire clip making the 4:3 section look vertically ...

Sky1 went widescreen! by System Addict
"David van Kemenade" wrote It's clear that Sky is probably not the most innovative broadcaster in the UK. Sky invested millions and millions in developing, from scratch, a completely propietary digital satellite system, including a complete set up for uplinking hundreds of channels, then the EPG software including interactive services for each set top box, encryption that has yet to be hacked,...

TV License Evasion by R. Mark Clayton
"Bill Bennett" wrote in message ... So, a friend of mine is going to Uni this year, he wants to watch telly in his dormroom. Probably the best way is to get a TV card and insert it in a PC. Insert a high pass filter in the aerial socket so the IF (what the detectors looks for) doesn't leak out. Make sure the PC has metal case.

Tarzan, I think. A role traditionally reserved for a two legged actor. Your right leg is fine. I have nothing against your right leg. Unfortunately neither do you. Yes that's right. And doesn't he use the word 'unidexter', which isn't a real word? Bill http://www.wrightsaerials.tv/index.html

Hauppauge Win tv Nova by Sid
With reference to the problems I was having (see earlier in thread): Well I now have a fully working TV Card :) I upgraded my PC, and put the TV Card at the bottom - as far away from the other cards as possible. Strangely I could not get the software to work (1.48) as no channels were found during the search and I did not seem to be getting any signal (even after doing the uk.reg thing). But I...

What good is a spare digi box? by Paul Turner
Hi - I am new to all this so please bear with me! I have recently had sky digital installed in my lounge with the movies/sport package. However someone I know is selling a sky digibox and I wondered what good it would be if I put in my bedroom and connected it to the dish? It doesn't have a card... - Is it easy to split the cable from the dish so it goes to both boxes? - Will the box work at...
