New sports needed... by Brian-Gaff
I am not sporty by nature and not really am I going to watch it on tv. I actually think its a good thing that many sports are now going subscription tv. However, with the rise of programs like Strictly come panel beating and Candle making challengem are not the tv companies making up what are in fact new sports to counter the ones they are losing? What next? Naked camel racing fro Kewait or...

Upscaling by Bill Wright[_3_]
I've never thought much to the idea, but I must say my wife's new Humax Freeview box really does make SD programmes look good. It was however necessary to adjust the contrast and brightness on the telly. Bill

Right aerial for problem area by AnthonyL
This is a continuation from a posting I made in uk.d-i-y. Several folk in the area I've just moved into report regular reception problems - for the moment I've just hooked up and old and previously used aerial (vendor was on Virgin for his whole 11yrs). I am getting some channels, some break up at various times and some I don't get all but the aerial would have been from when Nottm was analogue...

the dangers of insulating tape by Bill Wright[_3_]
I got a bit of tape stuck under my right boot, on the right side. Since I can't reach my feet these days unless I'm laid down I attempted to stand on the bit of tape that was sticking out with my left foot, in the hope of removing it. In order to do this I had to get my left foot to the right of my right foot. Now you know that Len Goodwin off Strictly? Well I'm not a bit like him. I ended...

Stereo A/V Recorder by Davey
I am looking for Stereo Audio/Visual Recorder, like a Humax, but for line signals instead of TV antenna input. I looked at CCTV recorders, but they only seem to offer mono sound, but I am looking for a recorder to record the output from a PC or a VHS machine. I can use a long cable set and record on a DVD using the living room DVD/VHS recorder, but I would rather have a stand-alone device in the...

PVR (not) finding alternative by tim.....
My HDR1010, as per the freesat spec, offers to find me alternative showing of a prog if I try to set up a recording clash. It achieves this happily using the +1 channels for ITV and C4. But for 5, it fails completely to look at the +1 channel. weird tim

Jeckyl & Hyde not recording on Humax? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Anyone else having this problem? Last week's (15th) was cancelled but showed up as a zero-length recording on my HDR-FOX T2 but this week's (22nd) also showed up as zero length. I used the FTP server to have a look in case it was the old 'BBC3/4 broken indexing' issue but there really was nothing there other than a minimal 'placeholder' file. Paul DS.

Following is the text of a letter written by me on 16th November 2003. To date I have only received an acknowledgement stating that I would get a reply when all parties concerned had conferred. Am I unreasonable with either my original letter, or in thinking that I should have heard more by now? To: Skyforce Ltd

BBC HD channel by Scott[_2_]
I watched something last night recorded from the now defunct BBC HD channel. The picture quality seemed to me to be better. Is this just coincidence or has the bitrate of HD been reduced over the years?

BBC Three by Scott[_2_]
As a matter of interest, does anyone know when this channel will close as a terrestrial TV channel? I wonder what will happen to BBC Four. Will it become Two XTRA or some other manifestation?

Can I fast-forward on BBC-iPlayer by Alaric
Somebody sent me a link to a BBC South programme on BBC i_Player. However, the news item appears shortly before the end of the programme. Is there any way that I can go fast-forward rather than have to watch it all from the start? Alaric.
