BBC interactive snooker problem by Olly
Hi everyone, I have a sky digibox pointing at 28.xE and I'm having problems getting the 'select match' on the snooker (by pressing red).

OT? BBC News promoting programmes by [email protected]
It has become a standard thing for the BBC1 News at 6pm on Mondays to include an item of 'news' that is actually a promotion for that evening's Panorama programme. It happens most weeks. Now the BBC News is being used to advertise a radio soap opera - not even a factual programme but a fictional one. When I switch on a News programme I want to learn about current affairs, not adverts for that...

Vision buzz by Brian Gaff
I don't believe it, to coin a well known saying. My set top box has started to give the old fashioned vision buzz common to older tvs which changes with picture content. It never used to do this. Its really irritating on screens of textual info apparently. I have disconnected it from any tvs and just have the audio taken though a scart adaptor. I suspect its the old drying out capacitor...

No more Drones in royal parks by Brian Gaff[_2_]
It seems that the sec of state has proclaimed that people are now no longer allowed to fly those camera drones in the parks as it could be dangerous and scare the wildlife. I imagine these should be governed by the same laws as any model aircraft over a certain weight is, ie, it has to be flown in a designated area, and the person has to have public liability insurence in place as well as it...

Interconnect cable - audio or digital? by David[_13_]
Digging cables out of long term storage I have come across one which is branded "Profigold interconnect cable". It has what look like RCA/Coax connectors at each end It isn't marked with a colour (e.g. red or black) which suggests it may no be an analogue audio interconnect. I am thinking it is a coax cable for connecting a digital source to the digital input on an AV amp (i.e. using the...

I don't know what it's called but I want to do it anyway by [email protected]
I've had a Humax 8000 for a couple of years now and have been very happy with it. Now I'm looking at buying a twin-tuner PVR. But there's one thing I'd like any new machine to do and it's this: I'm watching something through the PVR as it's being broadcast. Trouble is, I've got to go out in a minute but I want to see the end of the show. I know I can just hit pause and then I can resume watching...

Real-time transmitter info. by Nobody Here
Is there a reliable place to go to get real-time transmitter info, or at least something approximating real-time info? We've not had any significant DTT signal on Emley Moor BBC1/2/3 for a few days and I'd like to find out why. Analogue signal is apparently normal, and all the other DTT MUX's seem OK. The only sites I found with google seemed to be static and old. The BBC's page...

Sony RDR-HXD710 - modulator? by Nigel Molesworth
I've just bought a Sony RDR-HXD710 to complement my Humax PVR. I've searched through the manual, but can find a reference to a modulator. Hasn't it got one? If not, it's bloody useless as a VCR replacement. -- Nigel M

Teletext on C4 by Kennedy McEwen
I haven't seen any other posts about this so it might be a software issue on my STB rather than a general fault. When I bring up teletext on C4 on terrestrial digital, the menu comes up with the picture reduced to about a quarter size as normal. If I then select an item from the menu, say news, and go to an actual news item, the picture blacks out. Nothing brings the picture back, not even...

TV license for mobile phones by Ad
In article , says... That's rather a different point isn't it? Personally, I'm in favour of the licence but if you're not it doesn't matter how fairly it's implemented. How on earth can you be in favour of a unfair tax?

Channel 4's lack of Big Brother by Jiames
I have just read a news article that suggests BB is not much short of a big flop this year. I must say I haven't seen much coverage of it on C4, so perhaps they arn't bothering much with it this year. Or have they confined it to E4 this time? I think the BB bubble has burst, looking at the lack of promoting it this time. I'm not complaining, cos I personally think its a poor use of television,...

slightly OT - magic signal booster by Ian
A suspcisiously MLM style of web site has been spammed to other newsgroups, and the site is advertising this. I couldn't help but chuckle at the claims of this device. If only they made one for UHF reception. I could save a fortune on electricity by turning my aerial amp off and using "stray static electircity" instead.... Can anyone offer any plausible technical reason why something like...
