Coast - awful filmic effect by [email protected]
I know, I know, we have enough threads about the filmic effect, but... I got around to watching the first episode of the new series of Coast last night (recorded it the other week). During the last minute or so, on two brief segments (when blokey commented "and at the end of this leg of our journey, we finally some sand!" and then "if you'd like to interact ...") we briefly had good old...

Labgear CM5220 satellite line amps by Bill Wright
I bought a bunch of these from CPC yesterday. They were a bargain at about 2.50 each, instead of the usual 8 or more. The email from me asking for a returns number reads as follows: The primary purpose of these amplifiers is to compensate for signal losses in long cables. Since these losses increase with frequency it is necessary for the amplifiers to have more gain at the top than at the...

strange multipath in swamp conditions by Bill Wright
Parked outside my daughter's new place yesterday I couldn't be arsed to push the motorhome aerial up so I watched telly with the log periodic laid flat on the van roof, aligned, as it happened, at 90deg to the Tx. The masthead amp was in circuit. The location was behind a row of houses, but otherwise with LOS to Sutton Coldfield about 5 miles away. The site slopes towards SC and I could see...

My communal aerial system by Marky P
I know you are all familiar with my own aerial install on the side of my flat using a loft lance & No More Nails? Anyway, I'm thinking of nipping up into the loft soon to see why the communal aerial system don't work. When the tely is connected to the coax socket on the wall, the coax cable acts as the aerial. So either there is no aerial at the end of the cable or the distribution amp has...

Recomend DVD-RAM discs for Panasonic DMREZ25 by Slitheen
Could someone with a Panasonic DMREZ25 Freeview DVD recorder (or any of this current crop of Panasonic Diga DVD recorders or DVD recorders/HDD/VCR combi units) please recommend a particular brand of DVD-RAM media that they have had particularly good success with? Although this line from Panasonic is renowned for its excellent support of multi-format discs, I've found there's usually a...

Panny DMREX75 HDMI upscaling question. by Slitheen
Looking at the manual for the Panasonic DMREX75 (that I am getting tomorrow), I am confused about the whole upscaling function. The setting for Progressive 'on' and 'off', and nearly all mentions of 'progressive' in the manual, are discussed in the context of using component out. Now I intend to connect to my HD Ready TV via HDMI for the upscaled output of 720p and 1080i respectively...

OT - DVD rental recommendation? by bugbear
Does anyone have a string recommendation of a web/mail order DVD rental service? I don't want $ky, but my local (and only) physical shop (BlockBuster) is now insane. High Prices (4.50 for 2 nights of the latest disc) and tiny back catalogue.

Grundig GUVCD2800 DTV by David Pratt
I have a Grundig GUVCD2800 DTV (28-inch wide screen), bought from Tesco at 195 about a month ago. I am very pleased with its performance apart from the slowness at which the remote control seems to operate. The firmware is at version 2.1 and the receiver checks for updates when it enters sleep mode before going into full standby. Also, if the TV is left on standby overnight, it checks for...

RECEPTION PROBLEMS - must apply to all? by 999Rider
Dear Group, I live in an area with poor aerial reception (believe it or not in Surrey!). There is no freeview (Meridian not due to 2012) and having just upgraded to a 42inch plasma the picture is appalling. I returned the first TV to Comet believing something was wrong with it but the 2nd is just as bad (Hitatchi plasma). I think this is a classic case of poor reception suddenly really coming to...

PC Software for Humax 9200T by Stuart Grimshaw
I've had my 9200T for a few months, and I long since lost the CD that came with it ... is there any where I can downoad it from? I've had a look here : http://www.humaxdigital.com/hcsa/Download/Products/PVR-9200T.asp but it all seems to be firmware for the unit itself ... or have I missed something?

TUTV Anytime just a channel-holder? by Dave Farrance
I've just looked at the TUTV Anytime offering. Do you know of anybody that got a subscription? It can't be a serious offering, surely? It looks to me as though they've worked out the absolute-minimum cost solution for maintaining the use of the bandwidth without it being blatantly obvious to all that they've given up. I guess that they intend to make their money from auctioning their windfall of...
