OT - All DAB receivers to be obsolete - DAB is dead by DAB sounds worse than FM
DAB has adopted the AAC+ audio codec and stronger error correction coding: http://www.worlddab.org/upload/uploaddocs/WorldDMBPress%20Release_November.pdf Ignore the spin in the article about the UK not switching to using AAC+ - we will switch to using the AAC+ codec, and all existing DAB receivers will eventually be made obsolete. Receivers that support the new DAB standard will come on sale...

LCD Freview TV With Built-In PVR by [email protected]
Hi, After a little information: I'm after a Freeview LCD TV with integral DVD player (shouldn't be a problem) and integral HDD PVR (haven't seen one yet). Are these made yet? and if so please can I have a few recommendations. I realise that I can just buy a normal LCD/DVD combo and plug in a twin head PVR but I'm limited on space where I need this to go and it really needs to look nice and neat...

PC to go under the telly. by Colin Stamp
Hi all, Having got fed-up with the general crumminess of my Hauppauge Media MVP thingy, I've decided to re-arrange my network a bit and put a PC in the lounge to act mainly as a file server and MP3 player, but also as a basic gaming machine for the kids. The idea is to buy components and screw them to a wooden board to go in the glass-fronted cabinet under my oldish, cheapish CRT TV which will...

New TV time, but none are good enough ! by norm
My 28 inch 4:3 tube TV is well overdue for replacing and I've been carefully comparing and contrasting LCDs and Plasmas in the sheds. Looks to me like, at the moment anyway, plasma wins hands down and I've come the conclusion that when you compare them side by side the LG models are far superior, particularly in terms of colour rendition. So there I am, in Curry's. I ask for the remote so I can...

BBC Parliament now full screen by Agamemnon
BBC Parliament has just become full screen on my STB on channel 802 while the quarter screen version is still there but has been relabelled 305. What is going on ? Channel 302 looks like it might now be shared.

OT Flatscreen with adjustable resolution - ever? by BillL
Hello all, Just musing really but is there ever likely to be a flat screen technology (say in the next 30 years) that allows different resolutions with no loss in image quality? Its the one thing I miss now that I use a LCD PC monitor instead of a CRT one - the ability to change resolutions, without stretching or compressing the image. Or is this limitation inherent in all flat screen...

PVR connection question by John Hatpin
Please bear with me - I'm very new to the world of digital TV. So, I've got a Toshiba digital TV (a WLT66) and a Sony DVD player (NS76H). The TV has an aerial RF connection for Freeview, and the DVD player is connected via HDMI. All well and good, although I had to get a signal booster for the aerial lead, since it's shared. Now I'm thinking of buying a PVR, and I've got my eyes on this...

Television screen scratches by [email protected]
Hello there. I was wondering if you could help me with a little issue I'm having on my TV. I'll admit, this isn't exactly a "technical" issue, but I couldn't think of a better group to put this in. Recently, we bought ourselves a new LCD screen television, 40", and we were very pleased with it. However, my younger sister used a small rock and decided to type her name on the TV screen with it....

Cable prices by Bill Wright
The following message has not appeared here on Google Groups, so I'll repost it. "Bill Wright" wrote in message news:... Installers, what are you paying now for CT100 or equivalent? It seems to me that the recent hike in copper prices had led some importers to increase their margins. To keep it simple please quote prices based on purchases of 1000m or...

DRX400 bust - anyone know about the PSU ? by AJ
I appear to have broken my drx400 box due to a short on the LNB cable. Anyone know how accurate the PSU voltages should be under zero load? I've disconnected the PSU from the main board, and measuring voltages the 30v is low (~22v) and the 6.7v seems to be sitting around the 3.3v level, too. Is that typicaly? I don't know whether it's a fully regulated supply or not - how should it behave...
