why 12V? by Bill Wright[_3_]
So many things run on 12V DC. Firstly, why has that become the standard? Is it all because of the nominal voltage of a car battery? Secondly, wouldn't 24 or 48V be more convenient for many things? I heard a few years back something about new cars being 48V in the near future. Did it ever happen? Bill

Subtitle Disaster by Davey
I know that programme subtitles are not an exact science, but the rendition on the Beeb's programme this evening about the photographer Olive Edis reached a new low. They spent as much time correcting themselves as displaying the wrong words, and there was no excuse for being live, it was a prerecorded assemble programme. A letter of complaint is to be sent. We pay for this with our license fee,...

Dr Who by Brian Gaff
So Dr Who is going to have an openly gay female character in it. Yawn, well we had an openly ac/dc one ages ago in Cpt Jack so why not. What next. a wheelchair using gay transgender mixed race Drr who? Do I detect a scraping of the barrel bottom here? Considering many of the people in high office who have been making the most recent Dr Whos are gay or whatever, cannot say I'm surprised,...

TV socket charge up by Brian-Gaff
I was plugging the aerial back in the back of a reasonably modern telly last week and got a bit of a shock, well quite a big one actually off the socket and the plug. the plug goes straight to an aerial, no amps or anything so the whole thing has to be electrostatic I guess. I had assumed once crts went that none of this sort of charging would happen but it seems not. Brian -- From the...

nocturnal signal problem by Tim+[_4_]
A local lady is having an odd problem with her TVs at night. Here are her two recent messages to a neighbourhood network group. 1) Hi everyone , If anyone has had similar problems with their tv can you advise how it was rectified. An expert has looked at our equipment which feeds 9 flats and the cause could be two different equipment faults one being very expensive. I have also heard that the...

crap tv generally by Brian Gaff
Here is the thing. We have all these channels but the actual number of programs worth watching is still about the same as when we only had four. The question is, who watches the endless repeats and more importantly the imported us junk like ancient aliens, and unsolved mysteries and Ghost encounters and Cake wars and and and.

A couple of quick Qs about freesat... by Tim+[_4_]
My sister has moved into a rented house in the middle of nowhere with b*gger all terrestrial reception but it does have a dish with a double cable. I presume this means that she can use a freesat box or PVR with twin tuners? (I know nothing about sat). She may only be in this property for a few months so may not want to invest too much in a freesat pvr. Can anyone recommend a decent budget...

Hopeless at maths by Bill Wright[_3_]
I'm hopeless at maths, but I'm trying to get something across to an intelligent child. So, if the distance from here to London (250km) is represented by the thickness of a hair (0.2mm) how far is a light year? It doesn't have to be a hair; it could be anything familiar and small. It's 2.5 million light years to the Andromeda Galaxy; that's what we're discussing. Help!

Long gaps short range by Brian Gaff
I noticed the other night during coverage of the Westminster bridge silent vigil that there seemed to be almost as much delay in the interview with the reporter as you might expect if it was going on in the usa. I find it really annoyin when you get these delays, and the thing is we never used to have it, so what is going on here? is the delay in the digital processing or what? Brian -- ...

Smart talk replacement remote controls by Brian Gaff
Does anyone know if its possible to get these? I ask as I know in the past on here folk have suggested that people get a remote that can be taught what to do. Sadly for a blind person they get used to the buttons shapes and positions. These remotes are the weak link in this basic device since the bits of debris from the rubber buttons get into the wells for the contacts and stop them...

This content does not seem to be working by Phi
Halfway through Attenborough on the Great Barrie Reef on iPlayer through Browser, it just stops dead. Had near perfect streaming up to this point. I had to restart, but not from where I left off.

Freesat EPG and ch. 4 etc. by PeterC
All of the EPG is OK for 7 days except for Ch. 4, it's clones and some, I assume, associated channels. These are OK for 5 days only. Any idea why, please? It's a bit of a nuisance as I like to check what's on in a week's timeon each day. -- Peter. The gods will stay away whilst religions hold sway

TV system conversion by Bill Wright[_3_]
At the time when when I was a baby the only way was to point a camera at a screen. Results were unimpressive. By 1964 things had moved on and conversion was electronic. The equipment had 2,000 transistors and occupied two full height racks. http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?arnumber=5266568 I have just bought a gadget that converts TVI and AHD to HDMI, VGA, and CVBS. It handles 720p...

serving the public by Bill Wright[_3_]
For many years I've used a particular butcher. I must have spent thousands in that shop. I believe in building up a relationship. Yesterday I asked for something I often buy: beef dripping (it makes fantastic roasties). "Don't keep it any more." "Why?" "Not many people wanted it." He shrugged and turned away. I was going to say, "Well I buy it," or something like that, but then I thought,...

Weird channel anomaly by Pinnerite
My incoming aerial signal is amplified after it enters my loft. It feeds down through the first floor to the ground floor where it is fed into a socket on a TBS dual tuner card in a computer serving as an HTPC. This has an output socket from which a cable feeds a Samsung Smart TV sited above it.. Recently one of the channels on the TV said that CBS Drama had moved and to retune. We did,...
