Bloomin digital. by Brian Gaff
According to a friend of mine he is cursing dab and freeview radio as neither of them is in sync with his fm radio, which I told him did not surprise me as two computers on the same internet feed can seemingly be over half a minute out of register. It rather brought up the idea of when the year started into perspective. It was all over the place, so it seems to me that one of the major...

Reliable PVR? by T i m
Hi all, Not sure this is the right place to ask but I've been tasked with helping some technophobe inlaws into the PVR world. Now, I understand Humax gear is known to be fairly user friendly but I'm not sure they are as reliable as I want to risk as a recommendation (based on the one the Mrs had before I got her a Topfield TF5800 like mine).

Humax and More4 by Vir Campestris
.... since lots of people here seem to have them. We've found that if we try to record something on More 4 our FoxT2 goes mad. It becomes horribly unreliable, drops recordings, locks up, won't play things - I did think it was dying. Then I did a retune for a channel update, and normal service was resumed. Until I scheduled something else on More4... Anyone else seen this?

Stop the midwife by Bill Wright[_3_]
Or whatever it's called. Anyone watching it later, have a listen about 20 mins from the end. We reckon there's a modern police siren in the background. Bill

Smelly Tellies by Brian Gaff
No not smellivision as in aromas generated to match the content, this is the smell of new TVs. I was round somebody's house the other day and smelt this strange smell, one known to me from many years ago when old valve tellies were getting too hot and melting something important. Charred carbon resistor and hot smelly transformers. he claimed to not smell it, but I traced it to his TV, a...

Are Lidl still doing sat dish + tuner offers? by Java Jive[_2_]
As per subject. I've tried searching their site, but unfortunately it's the usual over-engineered, under-tested pile of sh*te - for example ... You can search for stores within a given radius of your postcode, six stores came up for me. You follow the link for the first one to find what's on offer. No sat dish, so you click 'back', but now the search page has lost the f*king postcode (yet...

dialogue on some programmes by Brian Gaff
Now I'm not an Eastenders view/listener, but had it running while waiting for Spy in the wild. last night. The dialogue was from OK to mumble aand background noise, while the AD track was always very loud. Is it always this way? I'd have thought that by now having been running so long the sound engineers could have done better? In case you are wondering about the perverse reason for a blind...

Recording to a flash drive by Pinnerite
One of my friends has a 40 inch 'smart' Samsung TV. It offers recording facilities via a USB socket. I told them that it should be possible to record to a flash drive. Now that 128GB drives have reached reasonable prices, it seems a practical proposition. The trouble is the spec. One pundit wrote that USB 3.0 drives wouldn't work on a USB 2.0 TV socket.

Pointless BBC Scheduling by Brian Gaff
Ah thus confirming what I've always thought. Scheduling consists of tossing a whole series up in the air and running them as they fall to earth. meanwhile the team adjoined to the pub. Is this series not made by a company with a name that sounds like a headache pill in any case? Brian -- ----- -

Mel Giedroyc by Phi
I see the ubiquitous lady is moving up the ladder rapidly now. The BBC has found a cost efficient icon to splash around. Good luck to her, she's been making the tea long enough.

TV wall brackets - possibly dumb question by David[_14_]
Do the screws which fix the TV to the bracket usually come with the bracket or the TV? Trading in our camper, but keeping the TV, and not sure if the screws go with the bracket or stay with the TV. Cheers Dave R

Who decides about what to AD? by Brian Gaff
I ask as there seems no particular logic to it. The program on Bones needed it but did not have it. Last night a film on Film 4 called The frogmen, an old war film had it, but more modern films on there don't have it. I think the old Avengers could do with it for the new viewers, but it does not have it, likewise a lot of the new US series on the five channels do not have it, but some do...

Redesign I player more like Netflicks? by Brian Gaff
What is the bbc board wibbling about? If they change it yet again so many smart tellies blind people and people who expect things to just work will be incensed they will get buried under complaints, unless they mean a subscription model to watch catch up, that is going to be very 'popular' Im sure, pass the Russian hacked downloader.

crimping F-connectors by Stephen[_7_]
Hello, I have in the past just used screw-on F-connectors but I would like to try crimping. I have a reel of what I thought was CT100 cable but wikipedia suggests that CT100 was a brand and says that it is no longer made because the manufacturer closed down. I have been looking at cheap crimp tools and they claim to work with rg59, rg6, etc. What is the rg-equivalent or nearest equivalent...
