Pioneer DVR420 & 16x discs by Louis Barfe's IbMePdErRoIoAmL
Hi all, I've had a Pioneer DVR420 HDD/DVD recorder for a couple of years now and think it a wonderful bit of kit. I've been using 4x & 8x blanks, which have burned at full speed, but recently I've switched to 16x blanks (usually Taiyo Yuden, branded as Panasonic or Verbatim), and find that they will only burn at 4x. The top burning speed of the machine is claimed to be 48x. Has anyone else...

Why two aerial connectors? by Jim Lesurf
In article , Bob Latham wrote: Does anyone have any idea why two aerial connectors? If it helps, the flats are in Wombourne Staffordshire and are served (I suspect) by the Wreakin transmitter. ahem Perhaps one of them uses Nordost cable supplied by Russ Andrews, and the other cheap CT100 supplied by Maplins. ;-

DVD by Michael Chare
My wife was give a region 2 Philips DVD player for Christmas. There is an all region version of the player, is it likely to be worth while trying to exchange it - or should I not look a gift horse in the mouth? We are not particularly likely to buy DVDs from the US (or any of the other regions) but one can't be sure of the future! So far we have just started to view the DVDs we have been...

Recommendations for HDD/DVD/Freeview recorder by Martin Underwood
I've been debating for a while whether to replace my VHS VCR and separate OnDigital (Freeview) box with an HDD/DVD/Freeview recorder. My main requirements a - all-in-one, to avoid having to programme a recording twice: once in the recorder and then all over again in a separate Freeview decoder - although I will mainly use it for time-shifting (using the HDD), the ability to archive selected...

Unwatchable DTTV by Doctor D
Our normally solid terrestrial signal levels are all over the place at the moment, presumably due to the weather (it's been foggy here for about 4 days.) We're about 30 miles due south of Sutton Coldfield. The analogue reception is varying from the usual perfect to very snowy over very short periods (10 minutes.) I've had to give up on the Freeview boxes at the moment. Analogue Five is...

Humax or Toppy by Margaret Willmer
Having had a wander in John Lewis this morning and seen both PVRs I am wondering which to buy. Does anyone know if there is a comparison FAQ or site so I can make a reasonable judgment? I don't mind paying the extra Ł100 for the Toppy if it is going to be much better. Thanks Margaret

TOT but seasonal..Does Santa Exist? by [email protected]
Does Santa exist? Hmmm..lets apply some scientific logic to the question. There are about 2 billion children in the world but Santa doesn’t have to visit Moslem, Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist children. That reduces his Christmas night workload to 15% or 378 million. At an average rate of 3.5 children per household, that means 108 million homes assuming at least one good child in each one. Thanks...

Humax 9200-T by Bill
Hi, I've found the facility to download and edit material recorded on the 9200-T most useful, the only snag being that I have to take the lap top to the 9200. Has anyone any experience of a wireless device that can plug into the usb port and be accessed via a normal wireless network? The nearest I have found is a Belkin F5D7231UK4P which the nice man in PCWorld " thinks " may work. ...

DTTV STB query by harrogate3
Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced STB that allows the channels to be sorted, either within the normal channels list or within favourites. I know the Humax MG-TU1 and its relatives (Astratec TOPD2, Matsui TUTV1, Digifusion FRT101T) can do it but these are all TUTV boxes which are rapidly vanishing or overpriced. I have a Humax, I bought my daughter the Astratec (same as Humax except no...

Freeview stutters by Monk
Whether I am watching Freeview on my laptop via a USB card or on a digital TV I find that despite a perfect picture quality, occasionally there is a stutter in the signal. The picture freezes for about 2 seconds. It happens about every 15 minutes. This happens on other people's TVs too, e.g. one at McDonalds. It creates imperfections when recording and affects one's enjoyment of an otherwise...

LCD Resolution by Geoff Lane
I understand pixel resolution when applied to computer screens but am a wee bit puzzled re LCD TV Screens I was viewing similar sized screens in a department store today and some branded screens were 640x480 (I'm almost certain I remember that correctly) whereas others were 1024x768. Now on a computer screen I know the higher res allows more to be seen on the screen but the TV is a fixed image...

OfCom kills off HDTV by Chas Gill
Several of you will no doubt be delighted (?) to peruse this little offering, which says, amongst other things, that the Great British Public would appear to prefer a wider choice of SD channels than free to air HD channels, so they aren't bending over backwards to provide for Terrestrial HD in the big spectrum sell-off (the "Digital Dividend") that will coincide with analogue switch off. ...
