aerial recommendations by Steven Templeton
Just got a setpal and I can receive most of the muxes in my area ( Glasgow ) from the Blackhill transmitter. However my signal is pretty weak using my ****ey indoor aerial so I wondered if anyone could recommend a decent loft type aerial for not too many bucks ? Saw one in Argos for about 9 which looked not bad, but my local aerial fitter quoted me 25 for one not too dissimilar ??? I am also...

Freeview - Can't Receive BBC etc. by Mike Jenkins
Hello I have just set up a Freeview box (BUSH 50 quid Makro special) and am having a slight problem with it. Apologies if these questions have been answered a million times, feel free to point me to an FAQ. I tried the box with the existing rooftop aerial and could get a few channels, Freeview website says I will probably need a new aerial. Fair enough, I get and install a 19 element Wideband...

Digital TV Card by Jackie
Hi I am thinking of replacing my analogue tv card with a digital tv card so I can get freeview. However I am not sure if I can receive a digital signal as the nearest digital transmitter is about 20 miles away. Is there any way I can use my present tv card (Hauppauge) to find out if I can receive freeview? Jackie

Pace DTVA vs Nokia Mediamaster 9850T by Peter Crighton
I have borrowed a Pace DTVA and get all but 2 of the muxes. I am thinking of buying a second-hand Nokia Mediamaster 9850T. Has anyone compared these two to see how their performance differs in terms of being able to decode muxes in a marginal signal area? -- Peter Crighton Email To:

Best set-top aeriel by Wrightsaerials
According to Antiference, we need a WH group aeriel for Hannington. Are set-top aeriels categorized like rooftop ones? They're all wideband these days. One fits all. Bill Laugh at our Rogue's Gallery Admire the antiquities in Albert's Attic Marvel at our breathtaking Aerial Photography

Rowridge Mux A Power uplift by Robert Watts
"Hooray" wrote in message ... Ok - anyone know if it happened - anyone notice any difference? I can't say I could see any noticable difference in the level meter on my stb when I checked the other night. I haven't watched anything on it for long enough yet to know if there is any difference in the reception.

BBC Local News on freeview by Peter Pratten
In uk.tech.digital-tv, DB writes I wondered how long it would take! It's normal for BBC 2. There is no provision for English regional opts on BBC2 on DTT as the cost to do this is too great for the small amount of opting that happens on BBC2. Just noticed a change here. The BBC2 mid-afternoon news summary has moved to BBC1. I thought at first it might be because of...

AVerTV DVB-T software support? by Tony
I contacted the company a few weeks ago, and their spokesperson said that new software with much more support would be available for the AVerTV DVB-T card at the end of June 2003, but nothing has been updated on their site as of yet. Perhaps there is no update after all..? I dont know. Its a real shame this card doesn't offer all the cool facilities that others do. Maybe it will when the...
