iPlayer downloads now only being offered in sd1? by Johnny B Good[_2_]
Not one of my Saturday night's selection of downloads included any hd1 (1280 by 720) offerings. Every single last one being sd1 (960 by 540). Some were expected to be sd1 such as "Dad's Army" and "Insect Worlds" whilst recently made programmes that would typically be available in hd1 format such as "Gettys: The World's Richest Art Dynasty" (copyright 2018) were also restricted to sd1 as were...

satellite navigation by Pinnerite
Until July I ran a 15 year old S-Type Jaguar. It's satnav was considerably out of date. When I checked with Jaguar they wanted £150 for a new disc. A couple of years later I found a site that did one year old ones for £25. That was fine and worked very well. I had to sell the Jag (I kept bumping into things) and bought a narrower car. A Kia Niro. It comes with Tom Tom installed. I was...

Freesat EPG by PeterC
Anybody else noticed that the EPG is only 4 - 5 days for all all of the 5 and all of the 4 channels? Everything else is OK, but there are big gaps as I scroll down. -- Peter. The gods will stay away whilst religions hold sway

Crystal Palace Issues by John[_21_]
I dutifully retuned, and was shocked to find a load of channels missing! Especially annoying was the loss of BBC News HD and BBC Four HD. As explained elsewhere, two multiplexes have migrated from their Group A homes to UHF 55 and 56. Given that London has had its channels in Group A for years and years, there must be a very good reason for shoving them outside of Group A: money and technical...

Gotham by Jeff Layman[_2_]
For those who have been missing Gotham, Series 4 starts tonight on E4 at 2100. Of course, it will all be a bit confusing as Channel 5 never showed Series 3. That was aired on Netflix last year - so those watching on Freeview/Freesat and haven't got Netflix will have a bit of catching up to do. Unfortunately it seems that, if Series 3 ever appears on Freeview/Freesat, it will be /after/...

Do Philips MR16 LED bulbs cause RF interference by Scott[_2_]
I am starting a new thread to focus (excuse the pun) on one aspect of LED bulbs. I am grateful to all those who contributed to the previous thread offering innovative solutions. However, now that the supplier appears to concede there is a problem I am planning to return them and purchase a 'reputable' make. Does anyone have Philips 12 Volt (MR16) LED spot lamps? Could you let me know if they...

Retune for Ch. 10 by Davey
Usually, when there is a retune needed, I see warnings for a few days beforehand. But last night, with no warning, we were told to retune if we wanted to continue to watch Ch. 10, ITV3. I did, and it worked. This is for Tacolneston. I tried another TV set this morning, and got the same message. Why no pre-warning, I wonder? -- Davey.

Has Com78 National (Ch56) from Rowridge changed? by Jeff Layman[_2_]
A couple of weeks ago I posted that for some reason my Panasonic PVR could still pick up Com78 on CH56 using the Group A 18-element loft aerial. Under the same conditions, the Panasonic TV couldn't see Com78. Yesterday (before retuning to get the 4 April changes), I had a look at the Com78 signal strength and quality on the PVR's setup menu. It was interesting that the signal strength bar...

Humax freeview to freesat by Mike
Hi all, havin had a Humax freeview receiver for some years now (and being very satisfied with it) I decided to get a Humax sat receiver (Foxsat -HDR). This new (to me) box seems really slow to respond when in Freesat mode (just changing up and down channels and along the timeline). So slow, in fact that I'm considering getting rid of it. When in non freesat mode it is quicker but still a bit...

from another group by Bill Wright[_3_]
30 valves, 400watts, took two men to carry, then they had to spend half an afternoon setting up the convergence. But it was affected by the earth's magnetic field so if the customer moved the set at all it all had to be done again. I'm so glad I lived long enough to escape from all that 1960s ****e. Bloody cassette recorders and 33rpm LPs (one scratch and it's ****ed), and AM radio and white...
