Watching British TV abroad by Norman Wells[_6_]
On past holidays in Spain I've taken a tablet computer and have been able to watch the good old Beeb on Filmon.tv. Now though it seems they've gone over to a subscription only model, which is over the top expensive for just a short break. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience of Mobdro or knows of any other alternative to get what I want which is mainly on BBC1? I don't really...

OT the telephone network by Bill Wright[_3_]
Does anyone know where I can find a map showing where all the phone lines go; the routes from the exchanges to the premises and/or the streetboxes? Is there a UK newsgroup that discusses such things? Bill

Those bbc audio streams again by Brian Gaff
Seem to be flaky this last few days, taking ages to start andhaving drop outs for ever or just seconds. As I've said before their tv streams do not suffer and nor do other broadcasters audio streams even on ann Amazon Echo with limited cache. Of course they deny there is a problem, but its very odd that a friend on bt and I on Virgin both see this from time to time as if there was some kind...

Antiference six element FM aerial free by Bill Wright[_3_]
Antiference six element FM aerial. It was on my roof for a few years but now I've taken it down. Condition is perfect. Anyone got a use for it? Buyer collects. It comes into two halves easily for transport. Bill

Inter channel levels by Brian Gaff
I do wish some organisation would come in and enforce some kind of standard on levels of the sound on freeview channels. I know this has come up beforebut they reall are all over the place and its not just compression differences as you can often hear limiting on some of the conten of the quietest channels. And as for the radio its always louder and some are very very loud. If levels and...

Muffled microphone syndrome. by Brian Gaff
Is it me or do the BBC seem to have somebody putting lapel mikes on people in such a way that they all sound like they are muffled? I'm assuming its that type of mike as studio stuff sounds good still. Its obvious sometimes as you can often hear rustling from clothing. Weather presenters seem to be particularly affected recently. ITV seem not to have this problem. Maybe they have bought some...

Digital Lemon clock by Brian Gaff
Many many years ago there used to be a catalogue company, whatever happened to that concept? Anyway, one of the devices they sold was tthe lcd lemon clock. It was basically a small lced clock with two prongs on it that you put into a lemon and the clock ran. Very silly idea. I'm not totally sure what made me remember this today. must be my age or something. Brian -- ----- -

Singapore F1 1st Practice - strange problem with recording by David[_14_]
I record the F1 GP on two boxes, the Virgin Tivo and the FreeSat Humax. In both cases FP1 stopped about 2 minutes in. On the Tivo it looked as though there should be about 1 hour 45 minutes but it wouldn't skip past the first couple of minutes. Has anyone else encountered this or am I the only one watching F1? Oh, FP2 was recorded O.K.

battery tools are crap by Bill Wright[_3_]
It sounds so attractive! No power cord! Use it where there's no mains! But battery tools are rubbish compared to 110V or mains ones. Now I don't do site work any more I can buy mains powered tools, and what a revelation they are! Firstly there's the fact that a mains powered tool can cost less than a replacement battery. For instance a battery for my reciprocating saw would have been £120....

Polaroid (ASDA) TVs by AnthonyL
Anyone any experience of these Polaroid TVs? 50" Full HD Smart LED at 299. The old 28" is just too small especially for sports. Not bothered about internet connectivity as not fast enough broadband. -- AnthonyL

10s delay on Gt. North Run by [email protected]
Just curious why the Great North Run, BBC1 is not in real time at the moment. Delayed by 10s according to its digital clock at the starting point relative to my small collection of radio controlled clocks at home. I think this is a bit too much to be accounted for by digital coding delays etc.

They are doing it again by Brian Gaff
Does anyone else find this removal of words in various news items with just silence a bit annoying. its like one of those quizzes where you have to guess the missing word, in this case it was mostly **** and the f word I imagine but really, what is the point? There comes a time when a piece should be deemed simply unusable as the meaning is completely lost. it seems quite common on early...

What a tangled web we are weaving by Yellow[_3_]
A Christian couple are reportedly threatening to sue a Church of England primary school because it allowed a boy in their son's class to wear a dress. The family withdrew the six-year-old from the school and will now educate him at home, alongside his eight-year-old brother, who was taken out of school a year ago after a boy in his class also began to wear dresses. The boys' parents, Nigel...

BT Call Protect by Scott[_2_]
Much as I enjoy winding up nuisance callers, I am now considering returning my phone service to BT so I can sign up for Call Protect. Any comments please on how effective this is? I just want to use the BT and personal blacklists (as I cannot block international calls and I am reluctant to block withheld numbers). I am interested to know how much the 'usual suspects' are successfully disrupted.

Signing by Andy Burns[_12_]
I'm aware that British and American sign languages are different, but in some of the press conferences from Florida urging people to evacuate the signing looks more like the All Blacks doing the Haka Someone trying to out-do Nelson Mandela's fake interpreter?

Use a BT Youview box without an aerial? by Chris Holmes
Hi All, My daughter is moving into social housing, and the flat has neither an aerial or satellite (it's the spell checker nearly put satanic) connection. Does anyone know if it is possible to use a BT Youview box (on a non BT broadband connection). just for the catch up services without having an aerial connected?
