TopupTV - without subtitles by [email protected]
Just in case this saves anyone else wasting their time: After trying everything I could think of, I still couldn't get an elderly relative's TopupTV Anytime box (in London) to show subtitles. I emailed TopupTV. Just nine days later came my reply - 95% standard text answering questions I never asked, but one paragraph that might have been intended to help: "We would like to take this...

DVI-I and HDMI by Margaret Willmer
We are looking for a new TV. The one I think we might get is a Philips 23PF5321/01 . The John Lewis website shows this as having a DVI-I input and not an HDMI one. I don't know what this means. The DVI-I is what I use on my PC (I think). Can someone explain in simple language please or point me to a simple website? Many thanks Margaret

TV passive splitter question by Lobster
Hi Excuse the numpty question but... I'm thinking of splitting the signal from an (analogue) TV aerial to feed two TVs, if it can be done quickly and easily using a passive splitter (otherwise I won't). I was at least going to try one of these rather than one of those cheap'n nasty Y-adaptors from...

Rigger recommendation please - Hemel Hemp. area by PerkyPat
I'd be very grateful for any recommendations based on personal experience, or on excellent reputation. I'm actually in Berkhamsted, receiving signals from Crystal Place. The reception is marginal here, and I want a complete replacement and upgrading of the existing aerial and all cables (which I suspect are ancient). From what I've gathered from browsing this group for a few months, I'm...

Masthead v Indoor Amp - simpleton question by Woby Tide
I have searched and think I know the answer but because the search terms are so common I tend to just get shop websites. What's the fundamental difference between a masthead amp and an indoor amp..if used in a loft with power? I.e. I've investigated the setup in our new property. Within the loftspace I have found the aerial, approx 1 metre down the cable there is a power supply with an indoor...

Petitions to PM - Why don't we draft one on minimum standards of broadcast quality that Ofcom should enforce? by Java Jive
While accepting the fact that it may not do much good, we ought to take every opportunity we can to try to halt the slide in technical broadcast standards and ensure decent technical quality. What I envisage is that AS A GROUP we draft minimum technical standards of broadcast quality here and petition the PM to act to ensure that Ofcom or other appropriate body sets these minimum technical...

Would you BELIEVE it? by Bill Wright
36 miles to a flats complex and what do I find? The lady had complained that satellite didn't work. Sure enough, No Signal Was Being Received. A quick look over the back of the settee at the wallplate established the existence of a splitter on the satellite flylead. I queried the presence of such a thing. "Oh, my son did it so I can have a satellite box in the bedroom as well, but it isn't...

Annoyance with TV set by Bill Wright
In my office is an old (but good) Panasonic 14" telly. For some reason there are two remotes kicking about. Because of the CCTV and the various other things the aerial system has about 20 analogue channels on it, which have to be tuned manually because we like them in a certain order. The other day while I was on the phone I noticed that the telly picture suddenly became brighter and the...

LVW 5025GHC DVD HDD Recorder - How much on a disc by [email protected]
Hi All, I Ihave a Liteon LVW 5025GHC 80GB HDD DVD recorder. I am very impressed and have been using it since the summer when I brought it. I am now trying to put some bits onto DVD. First off, I realise my mistake as I thought this wrote to dual layer disks. Ok - purely my fault - this model doesn't (although some of the larger capacity HDDs do in this range).

musing on Sunday afternoon by Bill Wright
Here's a puzzle that's just occurred to me. How can we assess the beamwidth of an aerial in view of the existence of fresnel paths? Come on gents, rouse yourself from your torpor and get to grips with this knotty problem. Bill

rolling picture by Jim
Hi I have a Philips DVD recorder model DVDR630VR. I am experiencing a very annoying intermittent problem. When I try to record a disk my TV picture starts rolling. This doesn't happen every time but it happens enough to have caused me to return to drinking which the wife doesn't like!! Lol.

Silvercrest/Lidl SL65-T question by [email protected]
I have a small range of STBs as I live in a very poor reception area and keep trying different boxes trying to find one that works as well as my old Labgear used to. This works OKish but it is oddly limited, eg, there doesn't seem to be an all-channels EPG. One problem I find particulary irritating (and the purpose of this posting) is that when you switch it off with the remote control...
