Analogue TV vs DTV Picture Quality -- which is best? by DAB sounds worse than FM
The reason I'm starting this thread is because of the following comment: "Ad Maybe you got crap analouge, my analouge is bright, clear and is far better than digital and that also means sky as well. Dominic Shields - No, quite the contrary, people have remarked on what a good analogue picture I had in the old days and I haven't removed that aerial, its just the huge improvement that...

Help! Can't find Astra 2 :-( by Marky P
Got my Panasonic Freesat telly and wired it up to my dish, but it can't find Astra 2 :-(. Shows signal quality as good, but won't tune in as can't find satellite. I tried moving the dish and using my Sat Finder found another signal, but still not Astra 2 (and it was weaker than the other sat signal I found). It looks like it's pointing in exactly the same direction as other dishes in the area....

UK Government's "Digital" Advisor by DAB sounds worse than FM
I watched Click Online on BBC News 24 a couple of days ago and there was a short article about digital TV on, and on it they interviewed Barry Cox who's the UK Government's digital TV advisor. He said that apparently the US wants HDTV, whereas we're happy about the picture quality we get. We want extra channels and to use the extra frequencies that analogue will release for "other purposes",...

Calculate your carbon footprint by Lord Turkey Cough
http://www.bestfootforward.com/carbonlife.htm Now change the values to give the lowest result possible (by cheating). And low and behold we still need 1.2 planets. So the solution to global warming is to murder 1/6 of the worlds population.

Freesat vs Freeview quality/bitrate by Tony Houghton[_2_]
My PVR has Freeview and Freesat tuners so it would be useful to know which is better quality when choosing one or the other to make a recording. AIUI Freesat often has lower bitrates than Freeview for a given programme, but if and when Freesat's bitrate is about the same it's the better choice for me because it's less prone to interference. So can anyone point me to a summary of how they...

Seriously OT - primarily for Bill by Steve Thackery[_2_]
Bill, and fellow climate change sceptics, Did you watch the Andrew Marr programme this morning? Nigel Lawson has written a book questioning the science and politics of global warming. I mention this because I know that Bill, myself and several others here are sceptical about the issue ("bad science and hysteria", to quote Bill). Bearing in mind Lawson has had other books published already,...

Whats the point of Freeview? by Boltar
Worse picture quality than analogue TV ( lots of nasty mpeg artifacts and motion blur) Worse reception than analogue TV Receivers use more power than analogue TV (climate change , who cares eh?) Most of the extra channels other than perhaps BBC4 and 1 or 2 others are either utter rubbish or endless repeats.
