Audio description again by Brian Gaff
Last night the much plugged Alcatraz part 1 was screened on Really. It was supposed to have audio description. the little pips told me that it was in the program guide, but apparently Really forgot to switch it on as there were no audio described scenes at all. If broadcasters cannot get this right they will be just ignored by us. Bad information is worse than no information at all, in my...

More Sky queries by Woody[_5_]
Further to my question (now answered) about Sky HD and FTA channels, an ongoing issue. My F-in-L uses Freesat-from-Sky as he lives in an area of Sheffield where a good terrestrial signal only carries Freeview Lite. He is complaining that he is loosing channels - for example some of the news channels such as Euronews, Al-J, RT, and CNN but BBC News and Sky News are OK.

Humax Foxsat HDR: Can watch a recording whilst recording twochannels? by Maurice[_3_]
If recording two channels at the same time (twin feed from dish) is it possible to also - at the same time - watch an existing recording? Have recently found some recordings are missing, and we've seen a brief warning message flash up on 2 separate evenings: "Recording (less than 30 secs) may not be stored." System Diagnostic says both feeds are detected.

C105 BBC 3 HD. by Tony[_17_]
"Coming soon Channel 73 CBBC HD: Channel 105 BBC 3 HD".. IMV BBC 4 HD would have been a much better option than the dross laden BBC 3.

Query on freesat by Woody[_5_]
Can anyone tell me, will a Sky HD box show the FTA and FTV HD channels on a Freesat-from-Sky card (or its HD equivalent) without having to pay a Sky subscription? My elderly F-in-L lives in an area of Sheffield where he can only get Freeview Lite, so I fixed him up with a s/h Sky box and F-f-S card. He is very happy with it but tends to watch some of the less glorious channels - Thomas Cook...

Saint John Vianney 8-19-71 by [email protected]
St. John Vianney says, "Man forgets the purpose of life. It is the sanctification of the Soul; the Goal, Sainthood. Children are not being taught this type of love. It is being skimmed over, omitted, and cast aside with human nature involvement. Also, satan is using mankind in many ways. He is diverting him from truth, God's Way." REVELATION DELIVERED THROUGH FRANCES M. KLUG ON AUGUST...

Have the BBC screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? by Ian Jackson[_2_]
Is it just me, or have the BBC well and truly screwed up their TV iPlayer downloads? Apparently, from 26 September, you cannot download anything without first installing their iPlayer Downloads program. You seem to have no option than to download a massive mp4 file (one hour being around 700MB, which takes for ever and a day on a 1.5Mb/s feed). To add insult to injury, some reason the mp4...

After their son left home recently and went to live with his girlfriend, the parents practically never watch tv and they dont even watch BBC for the news since they think its only suitable for Guardian Readers. If they do ever want to watch BBC its only on iplayer after someone has recommended something to them. Then they plug a laptop into the tv to watch the iplayer recording on the...

Just typical by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was facing a steel wallbox, about 500 x 600 x 250mm. In the box, screwed to the left side, was a diecast housing which contained some relays and a fuse. A long process of elimination had convinced me that the fuse must have blown. I say long because of access problems to both the input and output circuits of the box. The diecast box was one of those that have six little countersunk machine...

Extended TV Warranty not issued. by Derek F[_3_]
I may have posted here on this subject previously but it is more ongoing than mysterious bleeps night and morning:-) I bought a TV on line from House of Fraser in July of last year. It was advertised as having a five year extended warranty. I could have bought the set from other on line companies for up to 40 less but for some reason I did not follow my normal way. The warranty did not...
