Blake LP downlead by Ron Lowe
Hi, all. The blake LP aerial has a short pre-installed co-ax tail, terminating in an F-connector, and a rubber boot. The general idea is you make up an F-connector on your downlead and make them up, covering the connection with the boot. Do people generally do this, or do they remove the tail and just install the downlead directly to the elements? It's easy to do this.

Mast mounting - General Best Practices by Ron Lowe
Hi, all. I've got all the parts I need, and will make a start to this shortly. General Questions: 1) What order would you install these on the mast: ( this is my proposed order ) LP UHF ( End clamp ) 3-element FM ( Clamp is in the middle of the array, so the mast comes up through the middle of it )

Local Vs Main Transmitters by Geoff Lane
Driving past an area of Hemel Hempstead (HP1) today I noticed the local Hemel transmitter. One house, close by, had a clear view of the Hemel transmitter and was probably within half a mile distance but had a TV aerial pointing in the opposite direction, almost certainly Crystal Palace. Why would someone choose or need a main transmitter over a local one if the local mast was very close.

epg installation by [email protected]
I recently bought a new Sony LCD tv and a DVD recorder (Sony RDRHX525 ). I think I finally managed to get it hooked up correctly with the Skydigibox, however, the EPG doesn't work. I think I have tried everything but nothing comes through. Can anyone tell me how to install this? There seems to be conflicting info in the manual as well as at one point it says to use 'tuner' as source and at...

Home Video Distribution by Simon Dobson
Hello all, A friend is after setting up a home video distribution system. Two sources, a multimedia PC tucked away upstairs along with a Sky+.. Three outputs; two plasma TV's & surround systems and a normal Hi-fi. Quality of the system is the most important, so sending everything about the place wirelessly or with RF would be a no-no :-)

Another classy aerial install by fred
This pair of aerials is installed on two adjoining blocks of flats in Glasgow, probably housing association by the look. How could they get one right and one soooo wrong? http://i19.tinypic.com/2itlvmq.jpg http://i19.tinypic.com/2nrhgrd.jpg http://i16.tinypic.com/2s1oi2w.jpg First thoughts were that the correct aerial is for terrestrial and the other is an attempt at satellite or DX reception...

How many DTT muxes after switchover? by DAB sounds worse than FM
The last time I read about this Ofcom was saying that there will be 8 DTT muxes after switchover instead of 6 now and they would all be using 64-QAM. Is this still the situation? -- Steve - www.digitalradiotech.co.uk - Digital Radio News & Info Find the cheapest Freeview & DAB prices:

Virgin threatens to sue Sky by Beck
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6421419.stm Do Virgin have a leg to stand on? I am not sure of the legal ramifications of all this but are Sky legally obliged to supply channels to other suppliers? Surely if Sky do not want them to have them then that is within their rights?

converting a wire aerial to proper coax socket by Marky P
Hi, I jus bought my dad a little CD/FM/DAB micro system, but I would like to connect it to a proper loft or outdoor mounted aerial. It only has a piece of wire hanging out of the back. I know I can just attach this wire to the centre conductor of some coax which would improve reception but is it possible to connect the braid to something, such as the negative speaker terminal to shield it. ...

Just had a new 32" LCD TV but?? by Ken
If I set the 4.3 mode the picture has black lines around it. The other options, on the remote zoom button, are zoom, full or subtitle but with no explanations, in the very poor manual. In these other modes the top and/or the bottom of the picture is cut off. I would of thought there would of been an auto setting but there is not. If I had bought a 26" set with 4.3 format I wouldn't of got...

Grainy UHF output from Humax 9200 by Stone Free
For the last year I have had absolutely no problems with the UHF output, until yesterday. My Humax is connected to my TV through a SCART to S-Video lead as well as via RHF. It is also connected to my stereo through the RCA Stereo outputs. The aerial output of the Humax goes into my VCR and then from the VCR to the TV. When I am watching a film or decent drama series I prefer to use my...

Type of scart lead? by Kirsty
We have just had digital TV installed, and we currently have the digibox connected to the video with one scart lead, then the video to the TV with another (the TV only has one scart socket). To watch DVDs we would need to unplug the video scart lead from the TV and plug in the one in that's attached to the DVD player instead. My husband is sure he remembers having a type of scart lead a few...

Freeview Box - Dolby Digital out? by Slitheen
I have bought a new Freeview box, a Philips DTR210. On the box, it says it has a SPDIF Dolby Digital bitstream output....which is a coaxial output. It carries the Dolby Digital logo on the box too. But do any Freeview channels actually broadcast in Dolby? I was dubious of it to start with, and now I have connected it to my Dolby amp via coaxial, my suspicions are confirmed. It is just...
