It brings back memories by pinnerite
I am in the process of reducing my accumulated junk. Among the many spec sheets for valves, LEDs etc I came across a copy of the application form that I mus have completed for the Colour TV Engineering courses that I took at Northern Poly starting on 7 Oct 1968. The combined lecture and lab courses cost £4.01.00 or £4.05 in today's money. The lecturers names are a who's who of the era: Dr...

Back to Network Lip Sync error by Dickie mint[_2_]
For a few weeks now on occasions after the 6.30 Regional (MTD in my case) on Humax Foxsat HDR, the Lipsync goes way out on opt back to Network. Changing channels to BBC2 and back solves problem. Anyone else notice this? Richard

economic woman by Brian-Gaff
Erm, not sure about that. did I not read somewhere that it depends very much on boiling the correct amount in the microwave to get any gain at all over a kettle of recent vintage.

"Subtitles" for foreigners speaking English by MartinR
As seen on Adrian Chiles' excellent programme about religion last night. Somehow, the production crew for his programme manage to simultaneously insult the interviewee and patronise the viewer by insisting on putting subtitles on for some French people in Marseille speaking perfectly understandable English. What was even more bizarre was when a Frenchman with a very heavy accent (the Muslim...

Having looked up a number of these devices, all seem to come with the warning that if your tv does only accept 50 frames mode, they will not work very well. IE the frame rates used on the adaptors seem to be 60 and 70 hz. Can anyone tell me how on might know if ones telly does support the other frame rates? Also there are several hdmi to composite devices out there which do not list pcs as...

CBeebies for staff training by Bill Wright[_3_]
Yesterday the characters (a purple bear and a dog, as I recall, on CBeebies had a problem with the TV aerial, which they were able to fix. The methodology, site language, and H & S awareness was far better than I've seen many aerial installers use. An opening for BBC Enterprises? Bill

Ross Freesat LNB Out? by Kenny
Ross model HDR-6110USB and 50" LG Smart TV with Freesat inbuilt. Both had been working OK separately until I connected dish to Ross box and a flylead from LNB Out to TV so that I could use the Record function on Ross box, TV does record to USB but the recordings can only be replayed on that TV, not usable for anything else. It didn't work, tried TV and Ross box separately and now I don't...

OT - Car DAB radio upgrade by listener
OK, AM is dying and DAB coverage is improving. Halfords have a Pioneer AM/FM/DAB/DAB+ radio + USB input (for MP3 and CD rips) Sounds perfect for me at ~40, I think. Now the antenna. My car has a 30" whip (quarter wave at FM) sloping at 45 degrees in the front middle of the roof.

Humax Foxsat volume control useless on HD channels by Maurice Batey[_2_]
Using a Humax Foxsat HDR with a Sony Bravia, it seems the Humax's remote volume control cannot control the volume of an HD broadcast. Apart from using the Humax's 'TV' button to change the TV's volume (a nuisance haveing to flip from PVR to TV every time), is there another solution? (I saw mention of a TV's "Auto Volume" control, but can't find mention of this in the Bravia manual.)

new radio? by Bill Wright[_3_]
I’ve consulted the splendid ‘Radio Listeners Guide’ so I’m getting a few ideas, but I wondered if anyone here has hands-on experience of the radio I’m searching for. I want something that I can use as a ‘site radio’ when I’m working around the premises. Spec: Reasonably loud so I can use it outdoors despite traffic noise. DAB, and able to resolve muxes 25dB below their...

New radio, hi fi separate by Brian Gaff
OK while we are on this tack, does anyone produce a tuner for connecting to analogue input hi fis, that. Has dab that will work off an external aerial, if it has fm then fine, but it would also be nice if it could do internet stuff too. The one proviso is that it should not have a complicated lcd screen, no touch sensitive controls and have buttons which one can feel one has depressed. I...

weird inverse quantum effect by pinnerite
Quantum mechanics tells us that particles in a multiple of different states will flip to one of those states when observed. For months I have been scanning photographic positives and negatives for several months. Periodically, during final scans, the Silverfast software will sometimes fail with 'unknown error' but if I sit there staring at it more often than not it will complete its final...

Wall to wall snooker by Brian-Gaff
I simply do not see the point in using bbc 2 for the whole of the evening for snooker. Is it really that rivetting and popular? Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active Remember, if you don't like where I post or what I say, you don't have to read my posts! :-)

Getaway Car by Davey
I think that the BBC missed out by not mentioning on the innumerable adverts. for this programme that it featured The Stig. Mind you, was it the real Stig? He looked different, and of course, his face was always hidden. -- Davey.

Rowridge: if a tree falls in the forest... by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have today been perusing a most splendid publication: 'Television Viewer's Guide', available from http://radioguide.co.uk/tv-guide/television-viewers-guide.html This is an invaluable publication and in fact is part of the course work for this newsgroup, so you must obtain a copy. There's no chance of passing the exam unless you have the book. Students with both parents in prison can apply...
