Sony Crystal LED by Steve Thackery[_2_]
Just kicking off a new thread from something that got mentioned elsewhere... I've long wondered why it wasn't possible to make a TV or computer display using LED pixels. It is a very obvious idea, and would seem to be the perfect display technology. For some reason that isn't clear to me, *organic* LEDs are feasible in this role, but traditional semiconductor LEDs aren't.

Quick Sky Freesat query by David WE Roberts[_3_]
To get the branded Freesat from Sky service you apparently need to cough 25 for a card. According to Sky. Now I have the chance of an old Sky box - is there an easy way to get Freesat without giving Sky money? Google is not initially being helpful. Cheers

Fuzzzy maths? by Davey
There is some cosmetic advert I see, which includes the claims that "98% of 225 women...." and later "97% of 225 women...". A quick calculation shows that they have must have been questioning a half woman and a quarter woman to produce these figures. Who are these half-wits? -- Davey.

Hello Bill, it's Joyce, you know, from the kennels. Look, we've got something wrong with our televisions. It's been doing it for ages, and Harry's pal from the darts says it's low pressure. It's when we've got low pressure. Can you came and, well, you know, I don't know, err, pump the pressure up a bit or something? You'll know what to do I expect.

Line powered distribution amp by Ray[_5_]
My parents currently have a single TV in their lounge connected via a power supply to a mast head amp and aerial. They now wish to put a TV in the bedroom of their bungalow and wanted to put a splitter in the loft to feed it. I am not sure that their signal is strong enough to be split with a passive splitter so was thinking of a two-way distribution amp in the loft. There isn't a convenient...

Humax Foxsat HDR: Schedule puzzle after req 'record series' "The Bridge" (Sat BBC4) by Maurice Batey[_2_]
Just found an odd thing in the Humax Foxsat HDR's Schedule. Wanting to record the whole of the dual-episode BBC4 thriller "The Bridge" (starting on Saturday), I used the EPG to request 'Series Record' on BBC HD. However, loking in the Schedule, I noticed the given times were 21:00-22:00, i.e. the 1st of the twin episodes on Saturday. So I used the EPG to get to the 2nd episode...

I had a SVCR and worked on the Philips VCR. the new kid on...

Crystal Palace/Goodmans Smart talk box by Brian Gaff
This has occurred to several of these boxes today. Switch on, No signal check your aerial. No buttons seem to work except on and off. Pull out power plug, wait 20 seconds. Replace and turn back on, same response but this time you can get into the menu and do the retune. Now last time, it prompted for a retune at switch on, so I wander why its different this time?
