Is Iplayer on the blink by Brian Gaff
Recently I've been getting the intro music to a channel the content is from, you know the little jingle, then a long pause and then a caption saying. this content does not seem to be playing while buffering stays on the screen. This was last night. Sometimes it would work but not often. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...

How to trace a phone call by Roderick Stewart[_3_]
Did anybody watch "Endeavour" last night, and were you paying attention? I've just watched the recording and about 40 minutes in there's a standard scene where they're waiting in a family's home for a ransom call from kidnappers, with some technical gubbins to record and trace the call, and I thought I recognised some of it. Sure enough, there was a reel to reel tape recorder, a Tandberg with...

An "All 4 and tablets" rant by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Just an FYI before you make the same mistake as me. I have a Samsung Galaxy tab for which there are 'All 4', 'ITV Player etc apps. I've just bought a Samsung 'dongle' that allows me to display the tablet's screen via HDMI on a TV - but not 'All 4'. For reasons that only Channel4 know, the 'All 4' applet specifically blocks attempts to show it on the TV, putting up a message proudly...

Ultimate cost saving? by [email protected]
I've just bought a new Sony TV. Unpacked it, looked for an instruction book like the comprehensive one that came with the old Sony.There's no book, just a single sheet of paper covering several different TV models and 21 different languages, showing how to fit the table stand - nothing at all about wall fixing, nothing at all about connections and setting it up. Fitted the wall bracket from...

Miracast/WiDi? by Kenny Cargill
Acer laptop and LG Smart TV, when laptop had Win 8.1 was able to "Project" what was on laptop screen to TV. Since upgrading to Win 10, clean install on a new SSD, can't "Project" but can "cast to device" audio and video files provided the TV has codecs for that file type. Using Win 8.1 Miracast/WiDi had been a bit flaky and unreliable, I thought maybe it would work better in Win 10 but...

BBC deliberately distorts the audio? by Bill Wright[_3_]
On PM last night there was an interview about the mass sexual assaults by immigrants in Germany on New Year's Eve. Now, my suspicions of bias and cover-up were aroused when this story broke on the internet on New Year's Day but didn't appear on the BBC until much later, but this interview (36.55) had the most awful audio quality. I would have thought that if the BBC wanted us to hear what...

Amy Winehouse program breaks by Tim+[_4_]
We recorded the prog on our Humax and on playing it back tonight. At every commercial break the screen has cut abruptly to black with a nasty crackle through the speakers. Never had this before. Anyone else had this when playing back the recording? Anyone watch it live? Just wondering if our newish AV amp is in any way to blame. Tim

The technology has improved, but what about the design? by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Just got a Panasonic TX-55CX680B to replace the 7-years old 37" Panny. Works well, setup straightforward. But I wonder why manufacturers don't think a little bit more about the practicalities. 1. I feel sorry for those with no DIY skills and who can't use (or don't have) a Pozi screwdriver. Out of the box you need to assemble the stand by screwing it together, and then screwing it to the TV....

Jericcccco by Brian-Gaff
I understand this is a new series on the itv. I do hope its not supposed to be in biblical times as the voice I heard on the trailer sounded pretty north of England to me, I was waiting for ee by gum.

New Year Sponsored by Rolex. by Brian-Gaff
So there I was at 7pm on BBC 4 on new years day, and the concert started from Austria. I was shocked to hear, many times that it was sponsored by Rolex. This is the BBC man! You cannot advertise on there! I found out on there that the Vienna Boys Choir now accepts girls, which seems a little odd considering the name, but I have to say the engineering was very good. a realistic dynamic range...

OT Facebook by Bill Wright[_3_]
This is really me testing Thunderbird, which hasn't been working for a while. But anyway, amongst all the other ephemera and detritus flying around in a totally random pattern in my brain like the leaves and the grandchildren in the garden, is a thought that I will attempt to explain below. I used Facebook for a while. I only got into it because someone I was doing a bit of work for wanted...

Digital TV in Weston by Dickie mint[_2_]
Spent Christmas in a budget hotel in Weston Super Mare. One joke allowed! and we saw the sea in three times - bonus?! Hotel TVs had a problem. Weston sees Mendip, Wenvoe and Stockland Hill. Added problem is that Wenvoe and Mendip channels are interleaved in same frequencies. Some rooms had BBC1 West on channel 1, some BBC Wales and others BBC1 South West. Hotel staff had no idea of how...

KB3035583 by Roderick Stewart[_3_]
If you have Windows 7 and get an optional update, check what it is. I got KB3035583 today - again - and marked it as "Do not show" - again. I've killed this one several times but it keeps coming back. It's the one that puts that little square "Upgrade to Windows 10" icon near the bottom right of the screen. If there is anybody in your household who might click it accidentally and initiate an...

The Heroes of Telemark by Bill Wright[_3_]
Why was it blurred? Why could I see PAL-style chroma patterning when I watched in HD? Why was the sound poor? Surely better prints are available of this famous film. Bill
