12v 4a transformer. by Scabbydug
O/T I know, but Son retrieved a nice wee Bush LCD14DVD from a skip today (thats ma boy). It's got a small scratch on the screen otherwise appears OK. Unfortunately the person who dumped it didn't include the mains adaptor, inconsiderate sod. The plate on the back says 12v 4A, using a 12V 1000ma it just about powers up then cuts out. Anyone know a supplier of suitable transformers/adaptors...

Converting component sync by Doughboy
Can anyone tell me how easy/hard it is to convert a PAL component signal to an NTSC component signal. I think it's just the sync that's different but I could well be wrong. Doughboy

Weird Alba Freeview volume problem by Dom Robinson
I've got an Alba STBX3, bought a couple of years ago, which doesn't have any red dot stuff, and still works fine. However, my Mum has a similiar box - the same model but WITH the red dot, but all of a sudden the volume has dropped down to an almost inaudible level. It's not the TV (a 14" portable) as that's fine on analogue, but it has to be turned up to max volume on the Freeview box...

Digital terrestrial help please by Bob Smith
My mother in law had a new aerial fitted to receive digital terrestrial. The house is in Sheffield, and the old one was pointing at the Belmont transmitter. The TV guy fitted a new aerial, also pointed at Belmont, and the reception was fine. After he left, a few channels (most notably Channel 5) go blocky and most of the time have "no signal". The fitter says she must have done something,...

TV licence via eMail by Bob Martin
Has anyone tried the new email licence option? I paid for my TV licence renewal on the website and selected the option to receive my licence via email. I received a mail which was supposed to contain an attachment but my mail clients (on OS/2 and Linux) failed to see an attachment. The raw data contained "Voltage Message Blocks" which I haven't seen before. I asked the licensing people what...

PC DVI to HDTV question by Doughboy
I'm trying to find out a bit about the 709 colour space that is used to display HD material. Does the PC adjust the colour to the 709 standard before it sends the data, or does it only convert it from 32bit to 24bit? If it's done at the PC end, is this done in software or by the graphics card? Assuming the PC doesn't adjust the colour, is the PC (or any other source device equipped with a DVI...

Radio and TV guides by Bill Wright
Can I commend to you the new 2007 Radio Guide? Packed full of info it's a must in my opinion. Full UK frequency lists, Tx locations, station details, etc. There's a television guide as well which has all the transmitters etc in it. http://www.radiolistenersguide.co.uk/ Bill

Watch high definition trailers on your current non high definition computer by fluffy cupcake
I'm sure people here know but I just found out you can watch true high defintion trailers on your current non-high def computer: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/guide/hd/ I watch the Deja Vu movie trailer in 480 p resolution on my laptop and the quality was amazing. Exceptional resolution, vastly superior to standard resolution. Apple has many trailers in hd. The picture is incredibly sharp -...

Blackhill transmitter (Scotland) by Scott
Does anyone have any details of the proposed replacement of this transmitter? According to http://tx.mb21.co.uk/dso/facts.asp this transmitter is to be replaced. Will it be taller? Will this increase the coverage area? Will the new transmitter be at the same location? Will the new transmitter include FM and DAB radio? Just wondering.

OT - fireplace and/or aquarium DVD recommendation? by bugbear
Can anyone recommend DVD's of fireplaces (etc) for TV? I'd like a screensaver style image (preferably better, ideally a real video as opposed to CG) just to have in the background whilst playing music/talking to people over Christmas. It seems a shame to have a nice large(-ish) screen unexploited.

Sandy Heath EPG problems - or our Humax? by xyz
On Sunday evening we noticed that there were gaps in the EPG on our Humax PVR 8000T. Yesterday evening whne we switched on we had a totally blank EPG. A power off and on of the Humax gave a part-filled EPG again, similar to Sunday. Telling it to update didn't solve the problem.

DVD+RW picture freezing up by Lobster
I often record TV to DVD+RW for time-shifting purposes, but occasionally, as last night, I find that I'm watching a recording and suddenly it locks up, and then it either crashes out of the programme or skips forward a fair way - this behaviour is reproducible on the same recording so it's clearly a recording issue, not playback. When it happens, I put that particular disk aside, but is that...

Scaled vs non-scaled image on flat panels by Dave Farrance
Does the rescaling of (for example) a 720 line image onto a 768 line display make any difference that's actually noticeable in practice? What's got me thinking about that is the following: After playing back captured DTT video (BBC Planet Earth) on a 32" CRT using the XBMC (Xbox Media Center) which allows me to apply variable zoom, I've found that I'm incapable of discerning the visual...

Puzzle. by Steve
My wife was watching ITV3 in the kitchen while cooking Sunday lunch and afterwards went into the lounge to continue viewing. She turned on the lounge TV to ITV3 and found it was showing a different program to what she had been watching in the kitchen. We opened the connecing door between the 2 rooms and viewed the 2 TV's at the same time and both tuned to ITV3 and yes, there was indeed 2...

Sky picture quality - disappointing by Vaughan
I recently switched to Sky after having Telewest cable for some time. One of my gripes with Telewest was the poor picture quality - heavily compressed and blocky. I was assured by many people that Sky's picture quality was significantly better, but that doesn't seem to be the case - in fact I'd say it was worse on many channels, for example TV5. I asked the installer whether the quality was...
