4G TV? by Woody[_5_]
Just been into Screwfix this afternoon where they were having a bit of a clearance sale. One of the items was listed as a '4G ready high gain TV aerial' made by Labgear. Thinking on Bill's thread earlier I surmised it was probably an air-head copywriter who had no idea what 4G is about. Amazingly the box arrived and sure as eggs is eggs it said the exact same thing on the box - in BIG letters!...

I wonder how many copies of this complacent bull**** went out... by Bill Wright[_2_]
Dear Mr Wright Thank you for contacting us regarding BBC News. We understand you felt there has been too much coverage of the death of Nelson Mandela. We have received a wide range of feedback about our coverage of this

confused by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was watching BBC1 SD in the kitchen. The residents were watching BBC1 HD in the dining room, with the subtitles on. Just before 8pm I got a brief local news summary. They got a weather forecast but with the London local news on the subtitles. Father blinked but said nowt. Bill

While we're in the mood... by [email protected]
....to knock the BBC, I'm getting increasingly annoyed at the way the 'News' is used to promote their own programmes. Yesterday at 5pm I was watching the BBC News Channel as they covered the most important events of the day. And these we 1. Mandela's funeral. 2. Hospital consultants to be on duty 7 days 3. Rehearsals for SPOTY. Not the results, or even an excerpt from the programme itself...

Humax YouView and Audio Description by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Watched a film yesterday that I'd recorded a month ago. I was most surprised to find that AD was present. I checked the HY settings, and AD was indeed "On". I turned it off and watched the film without AD. When the film finished, I stopped it, and exited playback mode. The HY happened to be on 102 (BBC2 HD), and the film "The Duchess" was on. Amazingly, AD was on that too! I checked the...

Today's Freecycle List by Davey
I have no room for it, but if anybody in East Anglia is interested, I can forward a link: Samsung DVD-SH855M DVD/250GB HDD Freeview recorder. Features HDMI and 1080 output. 6 years old. Boxed with remote/instructions. In working order but I was never that satisfied with the quality of HDD recording - occasionally playback would be a bit jerky, but I lived with it. -- Davey.

HUMAX HDR2000T and YouTube by vigman[_2_]
Hi I just bought a HUMAX HDR2000T. I am delighted with the picture quality and recording options. However, when using their YouTube app, items that are available on my PC's YouTube are not available on the Humax YouTube app? Is this a fault or licensing issue, please? Also if I do find a YouTube video I want to play, it often says "This file format is not supported"? I take it that the lack...

Clever telly and broken audio pre-amp by Bill Wright[_2_]
I switched on my lovely big Sony telly and a strange message appeared. 'Searching for external loudspeakers'. Never seen that before. When the telly came on there was no sound. It's set up for its own speakers to be muted. It turned out that the audio pre-amp (a Rotel RC850) had failed. We've recently had two power cuts, plus the RCD firing due to a faulty kettle. For the time being I've...

Can you do better than Boris? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
In article , Brian Gaff wrote: Well, what the heck do these questions have to do with running an administration? About as little as Boris's own comments re IQ have to do with anything. Except perhaps for making the point that if what he said is accepted, then he wouldn't have the job of Mayor. Although maybe it amused voters to choose...

Film 4 by Dickie mint[_2_]
Firstly, my excuse is I never watch it! An acquaintance reports he can no longer get Film 4 on Freeview channel 15. Nor can I, on checking via a Humax 9200, getting the encrypted or unavailable message. Has it changed mux, got encrypted, or just got rehashed in the navigation tables? Richard

Getting my Rotel fixed by Bill Wright[_2_]
Years ago when one of the Rotel power amps died I asked Eddie to fix it, and he did, very cheaply. I've known Eddie since the late 1960s, when he was an engineer for a local TV firm, Vallances, and I was a teenage aerial rigger. During the early 70s Eddie became the service manager, then Vallences were taken over by Rumbellows, who transferred all the rental servicing to far-away Leeds....
