The Terminator - I'll not be back by Dan[_3_]
I recently signed up with Virgin Media for 100Mb broadband, taking phone & their freeview TV package. I duly cancelled the lot after finding I was in an oversold area making the broadband unusable at peak times. Anyway, they sent me a box to return their kit which had a note giving instructions on how to unplug it all etc. At the end it said IMPORTANT! pull (not unscrew) the cable from the...

Help needed with smart TV by Roger Mills[_2_]
Just bought a Samsung 49KU6470 smart TV, which seems to work pretty well, and the picture and sound are quite good. But there are a couple of issues which I can't get my head around. 1. Voice commands. My set understands voice commands but the manual - even the downloaded one, let along the quick start guide which came with the set - only has very cursory information. Nowhere can I find a...

wolfbane - problems? by David[_14_]
A long time since I last used wolfbane to point an aerial but as I'm at a campsite and all the aerials seem to be pointing in different directions with different vertical/horizontal alignments I thought I would give it a go. Site is there but doesn't load on my Android tablet. The link is http://www.wolfbane.net/cgi-bin/tvd.exe? from a Google search.

Parliamentary mathematician needed by Brian Gaff
No they don't they are probably in the pub. They have what is called a division. In my view this need to be changed. There should be free annon votes just like we have in the elections. Seems to me that a lot of those who don't want to be pinned down are mysteriously missing when a contentious vote takes place. Brian

Rattle by Brian Gaff
I notice that my faithful aerial in the loft is rattling when the wind blows through the tiles. No sign of any issues as yet, but maybe the local wildlife have learned how to use screwdrivers. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian Gaff...

Labgear Distribution Amp by Rob Brewer
Hi I have been repairing a Labgear MSA282 distribution amp (replaced faulty PSU Cap) and I noticed there are a couple of jumpers which seem to be associated with the VHF input connector. They are marked "Wideband" and "VHF". I intend to use this amp with a combined VHF/DAB aerial but I'm not sure which is the best position for these jumpers. Does anyone know what the jumpers are for and...

Heard at the seaside by James Heaton
I really wish I 'd heard the end of this conversation... As I was getting into my car at Bridlington last weekend (picked a good weekend to be in E Yorks!) I heard the following from a passing dog walker: Yeah we had a really good week at the car boot, we even sold that half telly I had knocking around... Any ideas?

told you so by Brian Gaff
The usual cocked up lines and dodgy audio was very well represented in the election coverage. So I rest my case. Nothing has been improved by new technology from tithe 1960s coverage of elections. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian Gaff...

Election pains by Brian Gaff
So then all radio and tv will no doubt be taken up with over hyped stuff tonight after 10 pm. Despite modern technology in use one still tends to get the old we cannot reach xx at the moment or people talking miles away into dodgy pa systems and all the other chaotic things we used to have way back in the 60s. Tech may have changed but the implementation of good practice by lay people has...

Bressay Transmitter by Tweed[_3_]
I'm currently in Lerwick. I'm curious as to why the local transmitter, Bressay, appears to be vertically polarised. I thought this was usually reserved for low power relay stations.

Freesat? by Mr Pounder Esquire
I know very little about TV and watch very little of it. Wife has it on 24/7. We have had SKY for many many years. The wife has just come back from a few days away in a holiday cottage and was very impressed with the Freesat. She wants me to look into it :-( So, here I go. Is it all really free? Do we really get all of these channels free? Not interested in On...

Reception problem confusion by AnthonyL
A friend is having problems with the reception particularly on the higher TV channel numbers. I've just checked on Wolfbane which reports clear line of sight to the Nottingham transmitter indicating that it is 1 mile away. Wolfbane suggests a set-top aerial - my friend will have standard aerials (they've got more than one TV). https://www.freeview.co.uk/channels-at-your-address/results says the

dashcams: how do they link to my PC? by Bill Wright[_3_]
OK I need a dashcam. Stuff keeps happening. Kid on a motorbike comes onto the roundabout from the pavement out of control and if I hadn't stopped abruptly would have been under my wheels. Guy in a big merc comes round a blind bend and passes me with inches to spare, me with the nearside wheels in the ditch. One day I'm going to need evidence. The problem is my ignorance is more-or-less all...

vision v40-104 modulators.... where can I get instructions from the internet? by [email protected]
Hi all, Over a period of time I have been quietly buying vision v40-104 modulators from ebay so that I can feed 8 CCTV cameras into my freeview/freesat/fm/dab distribution system. (the 700 MHz clearance will provide me with extra UHF channels to add the rest of the cameras after already populating 62, 64, 66 and 68 for the 1st 4 cameras) Only trouble is they did not come with any...

Aerial riggers I have known, Part 3 by Bill Wright[_3_]
Aerial riggers I have known Part Three Barry I’ve changed the names and places, but I swear to God everything else here is true. I thought I’d better say that because the tale of Barry is really extraordinary. In 1981 an English local council which I will not name had worries about the impending Channel Four. Barry had a contract with this council and
