top up tv advice by Dee
I want to be able to get channels like UKTV but don't want to pay the Sky subscription. I'm thinking if getting a top up TV box and recorder. Is the Thomson 160G supplied direct by top-up TV the best buy? (I don't have cable)

According to Samsung LE-32r71b HDTV manual the TV cannot receive an image from a computer through its HDMI input, but through its d-sub only. Is it really true? How can the TV know that an image...

Panasonic TUCT30 STB OAD by Wilf
Hi, I've inherited a Panasonic TUCT30 Freeview STB and wanted to use it with a spare TV. It works great and has the usual now/next information but its software version (can't remember right now what the version number is) only makes it "EPG-ready" for the 8-day epg. I'm sure there must have been a software update via OAD over the years but the previous owner never updated the box. Does...

Sky RF Out into Masthead Amp by Geoff Lane
I've currently got a loft aerial feeding into a Proception proMHD14V - four-way amplifier supplying 3 TVs on freeview. All working fine. I've also got Sky with aerial feeding into just one room. Could I feed the Sky's RF1 (Not the powered RF2) feed into where my aerial enters the masthead amp and get a distributed Sky RF signal.

Horizontal only? by Allan Jones[_2_]
Analogue signals used to be either horizontally or vertically polarised but I've only ever seen reference to digital transmissions being horizontally polarised. Is this correct or can they be vertical as well (it's important to me as I travel all over the country by narrowboat) -- Allan Jones - N/B 'Keeping Up' www.keeping-up.co.uk

THIS IS MOHAMMED 24 by msk2000
The Romans cried out in anger when they heard this, so Heraclius quickly said, 'I was only pretending; I wanted to see how strong your faith was. I am pleased to see that you are true to your religion.' Heraclius then suggested that they attack or give land to the Muslims in order to maintain peace, but the Romans refused. Realizing that he could do no more, and knowing that one day Islam would...
