BBC Have Broken GetIPlayer by Java Jive[_2_]
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/get_iplayer/2014-October/006240.html quote The BBC have removed the programme data feeds used by get_iplayer, so search and PVR functions no longer work. There is no programme information to cache, and it was the cache that supported search and PVR functions. There is no fix available at this time. You can still download individual programmes via PID or...

Digitising Vinyls (OT for uk.tech.digital-tv) by Java Jive[_2_]
Regulars will recall that I've been digitising all my ACs, MDs, and vinyls. I've almost completely finished this now, and as I've made some discoveries which I at least found interesting, I'll put them on record, before they are forgotten ... First a reminder of the general situation ... In various posts June 2011, Java Jive wrote: I still have some audio recordings in...

TV Aerial Alignment Calculator by Java Jive
I've now got a more sophisticated version of the TV Aerial Alignment Calculator up and running. There's a transmitter list with aerial heights (and potentially a more complete one with lots of other info not yet used), 60% and 100% Fresnel zones, and the curvature of the earth: http://www.macfh.co.uk/Test/UKTerrestrialTVTest.html The biggest long term need is for directional information,...

You and Yours by Bill Wright
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00ly564/You_and_Yours_14_08_2009/ I'm surprised that you hounds haven't leapt upon this and devoured it. Go to the 47 minute point and marvel at the sheer bloody cheek of the bloke, telling the most outrageous lies about DAB and FM. A total morass of misinformation. What the chuff is a '25 adaptor'?

TCM on Freeview? by John Silver[_2_]
Speaking to a friend in Scotland recently who said that she had been watching Gone With The Wind that afternoon. Later I looked up our TV guide and could only find that it had been on TCM that afternoon. She is not technically minded and had her STB fitted by the changeover team and has an old loft aerial.Other times she has commented that she keeps on finding horse racing flicking through...

Humax Remote with on/off and volume for TV? by Dave Farrance
Every time I switch on the TV and Humax 9200T PVR, I need to juggle two remotes. The TV's remote for on/off and volume, and the Humax remote for the channel and its other functions. I see from Google-shopping that there's quite a range of Humax replacement remotes. Does anybody know if one of them can be programmed with the TV's code to control the TV's on/off and volume?

asda freeview by [email protected]
Just got the Durabrand CG5660-M freeview box, and everything works fine except that when you put it in standby mode overnight, it won't come out of standby. You can pull out the power supply and reconnect, but then it loses all its settings. Leaving the unit on seems to be the only way to overcome this. Thanks for any suggestions

BBC R4 Today Programme (8:24am) have just demonstrated that you can't get R4 DAB on a car radio near the West London BBC Television centre. However, FM was fine! Interesting discussion afterwards. It's worth a Listen Again (when available). -- Ian

Mysterious bleeps night and morning by Derek F[_3_]
Earlier this year I began to hear 14 bleeps every evening at 7.30. I assumed that they were coming from the computer and at first thought it was coming from the BIOS or from some program that sounded an alarm. Not finding any reason for it I turned the computer off just before the time but the bleeps continued.. I had also found that it also beeped at 7.30am. When the clocks changed in the...

Full HD by Mal Travers
This phrase appears in adverts for many TV's. Does the phrase mean that when HD comes to an area that the TV will receive it via their suitable aerial. Friends bought this bought this one from House of Fraser. http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Toshiba+32BV701B+LCD+TV/165318435,default,pd.html The HD channel numbers were evidently not found. When they go to BBC1 or BBC2 a reference to DVB T CH 52...
