Video Senders; by soundmix
Where can I find comparative reviews of video senders? I've found many comments on the web and newsgroups about the Philips VL1200 (is the bubbling on low audio some mention a real problem?) but very little on any others so any recommendations would be appreciated. The sender will be used from a digibox in the lounge to a scart equipped bedroom tv with audio fed to a hi-fi system - I would also...

Whats happening with HDTV? by Robert Horton
Hi, now that we are in the exciting digital age, when is HDTV coming along? Maybe we are simply wasting money on new widescreen tv's based on antiquated CRT technology and 256 colours from our digital boxes. I stopped using 256 (8 bit depth)colours on my computer in 1995. Wouldn't it be great if we had 16 bit colour depth from the digital system.

Nokia 221T by Marcus Durham
Been given one of these boxes. Found some instructions online, but they haven't been much help. I initially plugged in the box and the right hand LED flashed green for about 2 seconds then the left red LED flashed very briefly. This cycled for about 20 minutes whilst I fiddled about trying to get the thing to go the TV. I'd all but given up and then it suddenly fired into life and was OK.

newbie Q: what is the dongle thing on the end of the aerial lead? by [neil]
Hi again :-) The lead that goes from the itvdigital box to the tv has a dongle bit at the box end - what's it for? It says something about for safety you have to use it - I was just wondering, what would happen if you used a normal aerial extension lead between the digibox and tv or video? Cheers
