slightly OT? - Topfield PVR 4000, any good by Funker
Hi I'm looking for a second hand receiver to record the FTA channels on Astra 2D Until now I've just been using my trusty Panny DSB30 but would like the option of recording to harddisk. Bit of a paradox really considering the quality of offerings on TV is on the whole abysmal.

Anyone know what this might be? by Graham.
http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/infoweb/sputnik.jpg The picture is awful I know, but it was the best I could do with my phone. its a shiny dome with three elements at the bottom at 45 deg, possibly ground-plane. The building is a care home, so a warden call system naturally comes to mind, but I am not totally convinced it is an aerial at all. --

Auto-on - Panasonic TV / Thomson PVR by larkim
Sorry to anyone that reads this on digitalspy too.... I've just bought a new Panasonic LCD TV (TX32LMD70) which is paired up with my existing Thomson DHD4000 PVR. When used with my old TV, switching on the DHD4000 would bring the TV (Thomson TV) out of standby. Apparently this should happen with the Panasonic too, but it isn't doing. The manual (for the Panasonic TV) refers to this signal...

the depths by Bill Wright
I encountered a no-name DTT box yesterday that would not receive the ch46 mux without an 18dB attenuator, and wouldn't receive the others with it. "How much did you pay for this box?" "Nowt pal. It were free wi' t' missus's mobile." Bill

Freeview Playback doomed? by Paul D.Smith
All, Just got a Humax 9200 and had the time to start setting it up. It's just had the FTA Freeview Playback update but I know enough not to get too excited. So I try to record CSI on Five, 21:00 every Tuesday. Hurrah, it seems to have the FP start/end tags; boo it doesn't have FP series link. So now I have two options:

Annoying VideoPlus by Geoff Lane
How does VideoPlus actually work. I've got a Philips PVR with VideoPlus, very often I miss the last minute or so of a program when I use the auto record function. Geoff Lane

Toshiba Pixel Policy continued..... by tpow
further to my plight......and I started a new post because this could be vital to ALL buyers of new LCD TV's I phoned Toshiba UK today in my final attempt to determine why I (we) are the guilty parties when it comes to a stuck pixel not being considered faulty. Customer Service asked what the problem was, I told them Red Stuck pixel after approx 1 days use. Hold the line.............30...

It never ceases to amaze me... by Ed
....how ostensibly clever and successful people can be thick as **** when it comes to connecting TVs and DVD players together. I just had a conversation in the kitchen here at work with a very senior chap, who said he'd only just worked out how to record freeview onto DVD. I was curious to ask what he meant, and he said he had to leave the TV on all night!!!!! A brief chat discovered he had the...

Many remotes makes... problems by Paul D.Smith
All, There are now two sets of postings on this NG about "dualing remotes". Both of these are in regard of "2 of the same manufacturer's products", however I'm close to having a clash between my Sanyo TV and Humax PVR (switching Humax channels in a certain mode also alters the Sanyo volume!). Anyone know what the manufacturers are doing about this? This is only going to keep getting worse...

What a plonker by Dave Farrance
So that "Television Engineers bbs" has done it again. Spammed this group with a load of stuff from last year. I suspect that it's actually one of those email-harvesting sites that ask people to sign up to a "community" -- and that it has a "bulletin board system" that appears to be well-subscribed but is actually a disguised gateway to the Usenet system. It wouldn't be so bad if this guy could...

Control problem by Mungo \Two Sheds\ Toadfoot
Evening all, Sitting in front of me is a Philips 32PW6008-05 TV. It has a DVD player built in and we were given it recently by a relative who has bought a 42" monstrosity with a fuzzy picture (hah!). Underneath the 'new' TV is our Philips LX8000SA home cinema system. The problem is that both remote controls seem to want to operate both devices, which is getting irritating. When I press...

Humax questions by Derek F
Received my first Humax 9200TB/320G on Tuesday. It practically set itself up and all seems good but one complaint and two questions. Complaint: Press instant record as a programme starts and if it has started a bit early it assumes that you are recording the programme that just ended and only records for a minute. Question 1: Can I make the display on the front panel brighter? Question 2: How do...
