Monitor for TV by Geoff Lane
I'm currently using a video sender unit for TV reception in an area of my home where running a TV aerial would be difficult. I would like to purchase an LCD screen for this room but the screens with TV tuners are considerably more expensive than computer monitors. As with my present set up I am not using a TV tuner I'd like to consider just a computer monitor but the input is different. Anyone...

News multiscreen query by Nildram news
Just intrigued really... When I exit BBC News Multiscreen where we get the bewildering choice of two "streams" (sorry, don't know the technical term !), for a fraction of a second, there is a third stream showing on the right hand of the screen showing BBC Parliament (I think !). Why is that and is the number of "streams" restricted due to limitations of the digital terrestrial system or...

More Labour stupidity.... by Gendy
From "Energy Saving Trust" via the BBC: "TVs: On average a traditional cathode ray tube (CRT) television set uses 100 watts of power when in use and about two watts on standby. Analysis: Why UK 'must try harder' Newer LCD and plasma screens are higher users of energy, with the largest models consuming up to 400 watts when in use and about four watts on standby. "

Best Dual DVB-T card by Slitheen
Looking to upgrade my old Hauppauge Nova-t PCI (model 909) to a much better card. I've not been following the progression of the market though, and have no idea who makes the best cards today, with best support (EPG etc). All I know is Hauppauge don't seem to make a real effort with their stuff, and would like a move away from their products. I want a dual DVB-t tuner specifically. Doesn't...

Sky HD Price Drop by [email protected]
Just a heads up that the cost of Sky HD will probably be coming down soon. The following evidence is presented: 1. Existing Sky subscribers can now purchase a Sky HD box for 200 and get it fitted by an independent retailler at the price determined by the retailer (around 60). 2. At The Ideal Home Exhibition is London recently you could sign up for Sky HD for 200 (plus new subscription). 3....

What DTV tuner for PC? by Nigel Molesworth
I've had a Nebula for a while now, but I've got two problems with it. The software seems to make my PC unstable, I often get Desktop icons vanishing, and secondly it won't fit in my new PC case unless I remove the motherboard first (one of the antenna sockets fouls the case). My requirements a Watch & record DTV Timer, preferably one that wakes up the PC Burn DVD with recorded files without...

2 Boxes, 2 aerials? by Rory
Hi, I've been told by my local electronics shed that if I want to run 2 set top boxes in my household I'm going to have to install an aerial for each on the roof. Is there any way round this as I'm not even sure there's enough room on the chimney for 2 (let alone the extra cost and time involved)? Regards Rory

Freeview: BBC Parliament to go full screen. by PGG
Just in time for the State Opening of Parliament, it seems: http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2006/10_october/25/parliament.shtml No more squinting at captions too small to read with the sound up to a second out of sync. I've no idea where the capacity is coming from. Hopefully they'll scrap the gimmicky news interactive ******** that only gets watched by

FiveUS dog by leon
This is the response from five re the size of the dog on 5us: Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding the DOG on Five US. There are no current plans to stop using or reduce the size of the DOG on Five US. Station identity is increasingly important in the age of competitive multi-channel television; as is promotion of certain programme strands. We have purposely ensured that the current...

Odd screen height on UKTV History by Kennedy McEwen
On my Panasonic iDTV LCD panel I have it set to display widescreen broadcasts of Freeview as wide and non-widescreen as 4:3 (with black borders at the side), thus giving correct aspect ratio whatever format is received. Everything looks fine on all channels except for the UKTV History channel, which often has widescreen images without including the widescreen signal which are thus is shown...

Rigger's Diary: how do they get away with it? by Bill Wright
How about this? For the three years since the place was built the five FM tuners serving the radio distribution system have not worked. In each of the 160 comfy little rooms it has been possible to select between five different channels, each of which went 'shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh'. Finally the managment decided to take decisive action, so I was asked to have a look. The FM aerial was connected...

Wireless aerial extender? by Victor Delta
Can anyone help please? We live in a relatively weak signal strength area although our main rooftop aerial delivers a good signal. However, reception on the small aerial of our portable TV is poor. I would like to be able to use the portable TV in a number of rooms without having to recable the house. Does anyone know of a wireless gizmo (or something else?) that would enable me to overcome...

Unbiased comparison please by Jim S
I have tried to get an unbiased comparison of the "Three for 30" option being offered by Telewest to what I have. What I have is as follows: Freeview box which works well on a good aerial 'most of the time', but needs re-setting a couple of times a week. Plusnet broadband @ 14.99 pm. When it works I get ~6Mbps, but Plusnet is notoriously prone to slowdowns and is having real problems with...

TV over LAN - advice please by Dr Zoidberg
In our new office building we are planning on having a few flat screens scattered about the building and need a way of distributing a video feed to them. As far as I can see we have a number of options. 1) Coax feeds to all locations - needs RF output from video source , not easy to move screens. 2) Composite video/RGB + audio feeds to all locations - easier to connect to multiple sources ,...

Freeview via NTL cable? by [email protected]
I recently bought a new flat. The service charge does not include a charge for maintenance of a communal TV aerial, but does include a charge for maintenance of an NTL cable connection in each flat. When I first moved in, I was able to view the tail end of the previous occupier's NTL subscription. After a couple of weeks, when I turned the TV on I just got a blue screen. By removing the cable...

Investing in Independent Film by Ovation
Investing in Independent Film has traditionally been in the high risk / high reward category. Typically investors sunk millions into a film hoping to win the film lottery with a big blockbuster. Unfortunately, using that method is about as successful as buying a real lottery ticket. In a business filled with conflicting opinions which so often cause investors to make their investment decisions...

OT Slightly - SCART Digi-box and Scartless TV by Roger Hunt
Greetings utdtv I hope this isn't too off topic, but it all erupted when I bought one of those Argos Wharfdale digi-boxes and subsequently noticed that the excellent old TV (Alba CTV744) I want to plug it into does not have a SCART socket, only a blanking plate. Question is - might it be possible to plumb in a SCART socket, given that the TV almost has one already? Any links to the subject would...
