weather stations by Bill Wright[_2_]
Does anyone have knowledge or experience of the little weather stations that transmit to the indoor unit? I have one here that transmits continuously on 868.3MHz which seems odd because I'd expect it to run the battery down (and the thing is meant to be high up so changing the battery is a nuisance.) Also the base unit doesn't find it when it scans for it. Ideas anyone? The unit I have...

Will the BBC stick with flash ? by Phi
The end of Flash's ubiquity on the web appears nigh. After Apple's anti-Flash stance on iOS extended to Android and YouTube dumped Flash for HTML5, Flash's fate for web video was pretty much sealed. Web advertising, however, was an area Flash still dominated, at least for desktops. Now Amazon has made the first move in what may become a trend for advertising platforms.The company says it...

Cilla by Brian-Gaff
You folk do realise that with the sudden death of cilla Black yesterday in spain, the schedules will soon be full of tributes and old archive footage? I have no problem with that,as from my standpoint she was and still was a breath of fresh air compared to some so called tv presenters and singers. At least she did not take herself as seriously as certain of the current crop do. Brian --...

The BBC still at it by Bill Wright[_2_]
When a white person attacks a black person the BBC infallibly mentions the race of both parties. "White policeman shoots black teenager!" But the other way round, or when it's black on black or brown on black, or whatever? "Black teacher stabbed in racist attack" The assailant was a Pakistani but the BBC didn't mention that fact. Bill

Why is it ? by madge
Why is it after all these years I am still having to explain to people that they're only paying for all the repeats on the BBC channels and they're getting all the other channels repeats for free?

Pigeon wars in London.. by Brian-Gaff
Now although these creatures are but one of than avian aerial wreckers, I have noted recently that some unknown creature seems to have moved in locally and is dispensing with them at a very high rate of attrition. I do not know what it is, but I find the remains of them, feathers, bones and bits of heads and legs nearly every day now on the lawns. I guess it could be a bird of prey, but if...

And another thing. by Brian-Gaff
BBC podcast suddenly had its subscription address altered so it would not download and in fact deleted all the pointers to already downloaded files. I speak of In Touch, but I'm sure they have done this to others as well. Why can't they leave something alone when its working? Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

Advice on next TV by [email protected]
I've just upgraded from Sky+ to Sky+ HD and installed the new box today. Everything appears to work OK apart from one all important thing: the volume buttons on the remote. I cannot change volume or mute the sound. The only way to do so is using the *old* remote. After an hour's googling I've still found no solution. Many seem to suffer a similar problem and the most frequent suggestion made...

Question on digital radio "information" data by Another John
We were listening to the lovely, divine Liza Tarbuck just now on Radio 2 and were having a moan about how the DAB wasn't displaying track information -- it was simply telling us who was on, and how she would brighten our evening. I went to the kitchen to do the washing up and switched on the DAB the *that* was displaying tracks information. Is this a function of reception quality, or do...

Press Red up all the time on BBC1 during News - Wednesday by Dickie mint[_2_]
Last night noticed the "Press red" up top right on screen on BBC1 DSAT during news at 1800. Seemed to eliminate BBC1, as OK at 1900 on BBC1HD and BBC1WM. Appeared again at 200 News on both BBC1HD and BBC1WM DSAT. So seems to be when News is switched to BBC1. Anyone else suffer this? Was out during 1300 News,today, so can't comment. Will be looking out for it at 1800! Richard
