New Telly Advice by Rob Gibson[_2_]
As much as I don't want to, it's time to pension-off my trusty 28" Sony widescreen CRT telly. It is still working, but too big for our living room now (and ruddy heavy having just moved it!). So, ideas and suggestions for a replacement? I was thinking of a 32 - 40" flat panel. Not plasma (RFI issues). Picture quality is paramount. Connectivity, looks, multi-tuners, etc., all secondary. A...

Mysterious bleeps night and morning by Derek F[_3_]
Earlier this year I began to hear 14 bleeps every evening at 7.30. I assumed that they were coming from the computer and at first thought it was coming from the BIOS or from some program that sounded an alarm. Not finding any reason for it I turned the computer off just before the time but the bleeps continued.. I had also found that it also beeped at 7.30am. When the clocks changed in the...

Aerials by Brian Gaff
We have had a few threads recently, and it got me wondering about domestic aerials in severe environments. I'd have thought that even outdoor domestic aerials might need to be heated or at least protected in very cold countries etc, yet I've never heard of any. certainly the budget ones you tend to see over here which fall to bits through plastic death in five years would never take the...

ANother daft question - possibly. by Woody[_5_]
Daft question No. 514 Will a YouView PVR box work as a Freeview PVR without a subscription or broadband connection? If so are there any to avoid (notice a reverse question.) I know Humax are good but there are a lot of Huawei boxes around s/h; I have two Huawei phones which seem to be very good so I have no qualms about the brand but does anyone else?

TOT Petrol generators by Dave Saville[_2_]
Having a disabled wife and the dire predictions of coming power outages this winter I thought I might get a petrol genny to keep the gas fired CH going and maybe the deep freeze. I realise it would be a manualy change over. Any recomendations? I guess the startup current of a CH pump and freezer is not much. TIA --

Freeview and internet programs on EPG. by David[_9_]

Dynamic TV pictures by Brian Gaff
Now this was a conversation with a sighted person about a week ago. He pointed out that many TVs like Sony in the analogue days had a vast dynamic range on the picture. The example he gave was of a spotlight momentarily dazzling the camera also dazzled the viewer on a good quality transmission, but he claims, no lcd seems to do more than give a kind of flat medium bright effect on such...

Travel channel on freeview by Brian Gaff
So one might expect them to at least make sure that anything they are broadcasting is finished by the time their slot closes? No apparently they had a program on about a Florida airport last night and when their personal witching hour arrived, it just went away in the middle of an item. Is there no pride or attention to detail any more? Brian

LG 42" LCD TV Screen Problem by Enrie Membership
Hi Does anyone know if modern large screen LCD TV's have a glass or plastic screen in front of the LCD panel? My 42" LG has strange markings on the screen. It's as if dust has got in the screen causing the strange marks/shadows. These marks are NOT on the surface of the screen. Please see picture below:

Yet another Freesat query - but a problem this tme. by Woody[_5_]
Thanks all for your input - everything works - ish. My F-in-L's old Sky box (Amstrad DRX400 or something like that) shows signal strength of about 80% and quality of 70% and never has a problem. I have just about the same levels here on the same type of box and I'm using a Zone 2 dish! When he lost his signal the other week (dish dropped due to flying ****ehawks sitting on the LNB) I...

Sky viewing card by Ian Jackson[_2_]
I've been given a Sky Thompson HD STB, and it works fine without any card as an SD Freesat receiver. However, it won't allow me to tune to the out-of-region ITV channels etc (like you can on a free-to-air satellite receiver), and seems to be locked to the ITV region where it was used a 'proper' Sky box. My question is, will a viewing card allow it to work unrestricted as a FTA STB (and with...
