pull out the choke by Bill Wright[_3_]
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20151204_122603.jpg I never really expect this to work. This time it was a recurrence of a problem we had a few years ago: interference from a PSU in a CCTV camera housing getting back to the HDR and putting lines on the (analogue) outputs. It worked this time, almost perfectly. The interference went from very bad to scarcely visible. Fewer...

What is this? by Woody[_5_]
Management went for No1's at 0430 this morning and looked at the clock on the bedroom PVR - as she usually does - a Humax HDR Fox-T2. However rather than showing the time as normal it was showing 'searching.' Is this looking for channel updates or the EPG - anyone know for certain rather than a guess? (I can guess all day long and still be wrong!)

freeview 100 by Brian-Gaff
OK what is this channel? The caption reads Freeview Inform or similar according to the voice inside, but it has no actual content. Is it text or what?

My long gone Granny by Brian-Gaff
I was reminded of this woman who used to live in Southfields in London during my childhood, mother to my father, deaf as a post but really quite sharp otherwise. Her TV was one of those that needed a liquid filled magnifier over the top and when we made our bi weekly pilgrimage to her house we had to sit and watch a very grainy slightly yellowy green Perry Como Show which of course was only...

Duronic HDMI three way smart swith. by Peter Crosland
I recently bought one of these from Amazon marketplace. It is two inches square with an HDMI connector on each edge, three inputs and one output with a manual select button and a LED to indicate the selected input. It worked OK but no sound output. I tried three good quality HDMI leads but without success. The supplier is as puzzled as me. Helpful suggestions would be appreciated. Damn the...

OT The Forth Bridge by Bill Wright[_3_]
I think they're over reacting! Just because of a few cracks in the metalwork they've closed the bridge. I sometimes look at a newsgroup populated mostly by Russian engineers. One person, a senior female engineer called Slapabitta Ameritonit (you might have heard of her because in a previous life she represented the USSR for weight lifting in the 1964 Los Angeles Olympics) said that they...

FM radio interference by NY
What sort of factors can cause poor FM radio reception in one room in a house but not in another a few yards away? It seems to be weak signal interference, in that there is a lot of crackly hiss and maybe continuous buzzing, rather than rhythmic pulsing like the "galloping horses" interference you get from a mobile phone or the rhythmic noise from Homeplug. The room which experiences it...

Really strange phenomenon by Bill Wright[_3_]
Luckily I videoed this, or you wouldn't believe me. I have a stack of hi-fi separates in a kitchen cupboard. It's all old gear, but the whole thing works well. There's a CD deck, an FM tuner, and an amp. The amp has an input selector switch, Aux-tuner-CD. Aux takes a feed from the telly nearby. I was using this gear to listen to the radio (FM tuner) but decided to

DVD Death thoes shock horror by Brian-Gaff
This would be the headline if a reporters DVD/cd player died. My one has just done so and its dead, no sign of life, no lights whirring noises or anything and the plug fuse is intact. Its one of those odd named ones. Yamada, but its been quite good for some years now, playing mp3 cds as well. So it only cost under 50 quid, but I need another one which is simple to use with the same specs,...

OT doghouse by Bill Wright[_3_]
She was giving me a bit of a massage, rubbing my back to ease the pain. I said, dreamily, "Oh I am a lucky man!"! "Why's that darling?" "Well I was just thinking, I've got just about every power tool I've ever wanted, now I've got my new drill." Bill

DAB/FM aerial by Bill Wright[_3_]
https://www.blake-uk.com/vhf-band-ii-fm/571-fm-aerials-omni-element-dab-and-fm-aerial-vhf-band-ii-fm-blake-aerials.html Why do they persist with these horizontally polarised FM aerials? What's the point? How come the gain for both FM and DAB just happens to be 0dB? For various reasons that seems most unlikely. And is it dBd or dBi or what? Bill

the wit and wisdom of Willy, aged two by Bill Wright[_3_]
Mum was asleep on the settee. She became vaguely aware that a small boy had climbed onto her lap. A voice said, "You got hole. Fairy got tooth in her house." She woke up to find a small finger in her mouth, feeling her teeth and gums. From the same boy this morning I had: "Where's the rainbow gone? Is it slipped into the water?" and "I got welly stuck in the rocks. I don't want welly. You...

curious paragraph in the Guardian by Brian-Gaff
I see, but with agreement we all justsomehow manage to keep things together and live happily ever afterwards? That is assumiing we do not blow ourselves up, encounter a giant meteorite or have a nuclear winter event cause then the Yellowstone volcano rips the guts out t of the usa then. Living on spaceship earth is a pricarious business and always has been. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian...

Dropped plasma by sintv[_2_]
I was removing the back of a Samsung 7yr old 46" plasma without laying it face down because Samsung stands dont fall off. Well this one did and the set fell and cracked the display. Since I feel guilty Im going to supply the customer with a 48" new Panasonic and just charge him for the original estimated repair - 60. Does anyone know what are my legal obligations in this case just as a matter of...
