Aerial rotator for FM by mikeos
I know this is not a digital question, but I've had for some years a Stolle rotator operating my 4-element FM aerial. This has become unreliable and I might need to replace it. Does anybody have any recommendations please?

New Freeview channels? by Max Demian
My Humax HDR-Fox T2 is badgering me to retune, "In order to continue to receive all the channels available in your area." Is there anything new of significance? I don't see anything at http://www.terrestrialtv.co.uk/ and I don't want to retune unnecessarily as I would have to reenter all my reservations (among other things). -- Max Demian

OT but interesting: a paper on the risks from low-dose radiation by Andy Champ[_2_]
Both these groups have had discussions about nuclear power, wind power, and the dangers and uselessness of them. I came across this: http://bos.sagepub.com/content/68/3/13.full.pdf+html It suggests that the linear no threshold model is indeed wrong. But much to my surprise, it seems low doses are _less_ safe pro rata than higher ones. So if a given dose give you a 1:100 chance of...

Time delay - Big Ben slow? by John Aldred
I was watching the countdown to the New Year on BBC (Freeview). As Big Ben struck the hour, my time pieces were indicating about 5 secs past midnight. Our clock is synchronised with the broadcast time signal (NPL MSF), and the computer is synchronised with the internet time servers. Both indicated that Big Ben was slow. So my question is does it really take about 5 seconds for the TV signal...

Power up from standby - Panasonic TX-32LMD70A by David.WE.Roberts
Our Panasonic (as above) is getting steadily worse at powering up from standby. It tries to start up, but then gives up and just flickers the red status light. If it is powered off then on again it seems to start O.K. - coming up in 'on' mode. Also, if powered off and on - coming back up in 'standby' mode it also

Amusing notice at Durris transmitter by Ron Lowe
Hi, all. Went for a woodland walk up towards the ( un-manned ) Durris transmitter this afternoon. As you approach the top of the hill, there are warning notices which warn ominously against approaching the site in strong winds due to ongoing work on the mast. Perhaps they are worried it's going to fall over! The notice goes on to say that in case of emergency, to call ......

Distributing digital signals in an apartment block by Michael
I am a member of the management committee for a 35 flat apartment block in the south west. The block is out of range of the existing digital transmissions but is close to a relay which presumably will be upgraded to low strength terrestrial digital in 2009. At present we can only get BBC1 & 2, ITV and Channel 4. We have an AGM at the end of October and I am due to ask the owners to comment...

VCR as a SCART to UHF converter? by ian field
At some point I hope to be testing a PVR with a rebuilt power board, however the only TV at the workshop is a Casio pocket TV (no scart connector - obviously). Will a typical VCR present a UHF signal out from scart in??? Thanks.

BBC admits it lied about DOGs on BBC3 by Agamemnon
Thank you for your e-mail. I note that you continue to object to the DOGs used for the BBC Switch strand and BBC THREE. With regards to my colleague's previous response, I apologise for the outdated information he sent you. The current BBC THREE policy on DOGs is as follows: The standard BBC THREE DOG is used for all programming including drama,

Analogue Through Rose Tints by Silk
Now that analogue TV is finally coming to an end, I'm surprised to see people commenting on what a great loss it is and how superior it is/was to digital. Let's look at the evidence: Anaglogue: 4:3 aspect ratio only; Very annoying and obvious PAL artifacts; Susceptble to noise and ghosting in all but perfect signal areas; inefficient use of bandwidth; etc.

New TV for old parents? by T i m
HI all, Before I try to drag my elderly (80+) and less than mobile Dad round a few TV shops I thought I'd see if there may be an answer, or at least general direction that could be gleaned here please. They are looking to replace their ~36" CRT wide screen TV with a new flat panel jobby but whilst one could walk into the likes of Tesco and come out with something that would probably do, I think...

TV Freeview picture breaking up, New 4G transmitter and Aeroplanes by john west
Suddenly in the last month or so our Freeview television picture is suddenly breaking up. We got a visit from the 'at800' Engineer who fitted a filter in-line before our television aerial amplifier. Apparently we have a new phone 4G transmitter installed quite near. The engineer said his readings were within accepted limits. We are about 15 miles north east of Heathrow Airport and get a lot...
