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

Loss of picture colour not teletext or channel indicator by SHook
Hello, Wonder if anyone can tell me if the problem i have can be fixed easily or should I just ditch the tv and buy another one? I have Sony Trinitron KV-X2552U tv. Unfortunately and suddenly the colour picture will become black and white, maybe for a few seconds or usually for a couple of hours. Occasionally if you turn the tv off and on again (either remote or on the tv) the colour picture...

TOT turbines by Bill Wright[_2_]
From my window I can see four wind turbines. This morning two were turning clockwise and two were turning anticlockwise. There wasn't much wind so they were all turning very slowly. But how come two were running backwards? Bill

LG telly default input by CD
My 83 year old dad had an ageing 32" CRT that he had got to grips with over the years that recently died. I stuck in a 42" LG, which he was over the moon with, into this was plugged his SD Sky box via scart (remember them) which cheerfully switched the telly to AV1 automatically. The Sky box started freezing so my brother put a spare Sky HD box on via HDMI, all was fine apart from him getting...

It's time to ban widescreen. by half_pint
Due to it's inherent lack of height a widesceen picture is tremendously wasteful in terms of energy usage and bandwidth. Typically half of the image displayed is wasted which means a widescreen TV uses approximately twice as much energy a more sensibly sizeed screen (4:3 for example). Also from a bandwidth point of view about twice as bandwidth is needed to display a given number of channels. The...

Freeview signal quality all over the place by WCZ[_3_]
For about the last week or so I've been getting picture breakup and pops and squawks on Freeview. I've not checked all channels but the first dozen or so in the EPG have the same problem. As I was getting fed up with it last night I thought I'd have a poke around in the tele menus (Panny PZ80) and found the signal strength screen. Strength was 100% but the quality was fluctuating wildly...

Slow Humax PVR 9200 by Ivan
When I upgraded my Humax PVR 9200 (to a PVR 9300) I passed it on to my son and it has worked fine until a couple of days before the DSO here in the West region, since when it has now become so slow as to be virtually unusable, I appreciate that this isn't a new or unknown problem with this model, however does anyone know if there is a fix now available, or if there will be one arriving in...

Eurosport on free-to-air digital satellite? by Bonge Boo!
Anyone know if you can get Eurosport on free-to-air digital satellite? Currently I have an old analog dish that gets Eurosport. I'm weighing up upgrading my aerial and getting a freeview box for digital terrestrial, or replacing the analog sat disk with a digi dish and decoder. The deal decider is Eurosport. I must have it, and I don't want to pay Murdoch for it. Any ideas?

HD Freesat box reccomendations? by David WE Roberts[_3_]
I'm getting more and more ****ed of with our Bush HD Freesat box. It seems to get all arsey from time to time, possibly due to overheating, and then needs to have a nice rest in a quiet darkened room until it feels better. Witness previous queries about using an old Sky box as backup. I'm now wondering if it is worth replacing with something more modern (by a couple of years) possibly with...

Analogue TV vs DTV Picture Quality -- which is best? by DAB sounds worse than FM
The reason I'm starting this thread is because of the following comment: "Ad Maybe you got crap analouge, my analouge is bright, clear and is far better than digital and that also means sky as well. Dominic Shields - No, quite the contrary, people have remarked on what a good analogue picture I had in the old days and I haven't removed that aerial, its just the huge improvement that...
