Picture in background by the_constructor
When playing a video on the VHS machine or a DVD I always get a feint picture in the background. I was advised today to cut the wire to pin 19 in all the scart plugs to cure it. Is this right....? What does pin 19 do .....? -- the_constructor

Judge John Deed by [email protected]ostmaster.co.uk
Judge John Deed, Tuesday BBC1, viewed via DTT and CRT. (Pace Twin recording, only just watched it). What have they done to the picture? To my eyes, the blur during motion is now half way to the horrible effect plastered on Torchwood. Does anyone else notice something strange on JJD? Almost like a bad filmic effect, whereas previously it looked like, er, real film!

Aluminium or steel mast? by Informer
I will be fitting a new aerial soon, which is a little heavy and will be using a 6ft by 2-inch pole on a T & K bracket. I have a choice of using an aluminium or a steel pole. As I will be buying the pole from an aerial supplier I guess the pole would be stainless steel, as would not a plain steel pole rust? Anyway are there any advantages with using a particular type.

Recording problems with C4 and E4 using BT vision by speckled hen
Hi Has any one had problems recording C4 or E4, just recently got BT Vision and it does not appear to want to record. I have heard that it maynot be a problem with the Vision box but could be a problem with the way C4 deliver the signal. It does not appear to happen on all transmitters. It also affects sky plus receivers. Any one else had/heard of this problem? thanks

Horizontal or vertical by Tracy
Hi where I live I would get digital tv from the Angus transmitter and according to http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/coverage_retailer.pl?postcode=ph2+9rf the aerial should be horizontally aligned and yet I have noticed that some of my neighbours aerials are vertically aligned. This is possibly because they were previously getting analogue from Perth which is vertically aligned. The aerials...

Rigger recommendation in or near Chippenham Wiltshire? by Rob Horton
I'm getting some odd noises from my aerial system, DAT75 on a long pole, when the wind is blowing strongly. The rigger I originally used had an accident a few years ago and now doesn't go up ladders. I am now reduced to picking something at random from the phone directory. Obviously any advert that shows a picture of a circular, omni directional FM aerial will automatically be...

She wants to connect a Sony DVD player. The DVD player has both SCART and RCA connectors. The Humax freeview box has two SCART sockets - one for a TV and one for a VCR or DVD. She tried connecting the VCR/DVD SCART socket to the...

terrestrial microwave transmissions by Bill Wright
Troubled as I am of late by terrestrial signals in ku band causing problems with satellite distribution systems, I wonder if anyone here has any info on the usage of these frequencies. I seems to be seeing great lumps of what I assume is data running across the lower half of the band. It can wipe out satellite reception. 10 to 12 GHz is the area of interest. Bill

DVR recommendations for tivo user by Adds
Hello, For the last 5 or 6 years, I've been using a TiVo in conjunction with Sky. It's always worked very well (with the exception of the very occasional errors when the TiVo attempts to change the Sky channel via the IR blaster thing). However, I'm on a bit of a cost-cutting exercise at the moment, and this means switching from Sky to Freeview. It also means getting rid of the TiVo, as,...
