Freeview Prog Guide on Sandy Heath not working today by Clive Page[_4_]
Today the Freeview programme guide that we receive from Sandy Heath has no information for the next 7 days for many BBC channels - has anyone else found that? A couple of days ago the iPlayer stopped working on our Panasonic TV because of some change - I've no idea what. But then somebody fixed something so it was back the next day. I guess its the time of year when the people who really...

Virgin Tivo box - set to record future show? by David[_13_]
If you know the first episode of a show is due to start in 5 days time, can you set a series record option now? I guess this is basically a question of how far into the future the Virgin Tivo EPG can see in general, and if there are any clever options. TIA Dave R

Things on my mind (2) by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was loitering in the beer section of Morrisons and there was an attractive woman in her thirties picking up bottles, peering at them, and putting a few in her trolley. Like all old men I will do anything to engage in conversation with passable ladies half my age, so I asked, "Having trouble choosing?" "Yes I am!" she replied. "It's for his birthday. But they've got to be on special offer...

IR LED effects by Davey
I have a couple of cameras set up, they have inbuilt IR LEDs, as is common. When I look at the image on the monitor, using Zoneminder on my PC, I see a constant flashing as though the IR LEDs are pulsing. It also creates a problem with triggering a Motion Detection Event, so I have to program around this. On the screen, the pulsing appears to be just faster than 1 Hz, but I appreciate this may be...

Night-Flying Insects Don't Like Classical Music? by Java Jive[_2_]
I'm just watching the Vienna Philharmonic's Summer Night's Concert, and have just noticed the remarkable absence of night-flying insects - not a moth, mosquito, or midge in sight. I wonder if they have been soaking the place in insecticide for the previous week or two? -- ======================================================== Please always reply to ng as the email in this post's header does...

Things on my mind (3) by Bill Wright[_2_]
His wife has a guest who she quite likes but he cannot stand. It being lunchtime he is sent into the kitchen to prepare a snack for his wife and the guest: eggs on toast. From the kitchen he can hear the guest pontificating about the virtues of free range chickens, the moral duty of us all not to waste food, the joys of home bread making, and so on and so forth. As our man conveys the second...

iPlayer on Panasonic TV not working today by Clive Page[_4_]
We have a Panasonic Veira TV about 4 years old, which has been happily showing us past BBC programmes via its built-in iPlayer software and an Ethernet cable to our broadband router. It also needs a satellite connection (for some reason I've never understood) but that still works fine on other channels. Today when I connect to Freesat channel 901 I don't get the usual iPlayer home page but...

Things on my mind (1) by Bill Wright[_2_]
Whilst having the bonfire that I have to have because the council won't take all our rubbish I chanced upon a small directory, one of those that comes free. Of course I looked at the 'Aerials' section. I have in-depth knowledge of all the local aerial firms, and I can tell you that every single one of those with display adverts should, in my opinion, be avoided by the consumer. The larger...

Charging for iPlayer by Pinnerite[_2_]
This proposal raises some interesting points. This is my take on the issue. If one pays for one's licence, should one be asked to pay? If not, how would the system know? Answer, a bureaucratic expense. If one pays but is abroad should one pay? In my opinion, if it is handled, for example like iTunes, a sort of 99p per programme approach, the answer is yes.

tv coax plugs by Stephen[_4_]
Hello, I know to use f plugs wherever possible but I need a coax plug to connect at the back of the tv. I had a quick look on the CPC web site but they sell aluminium plugs, nickel plated zinc plugs, and plated brass plugs. Are they all the same or is one better than the others? Thanks, Stephen.

Question about levels. by Brian-Gaff
I notice on Freeview that the mean levels of stations is widely different on different channels. Radio is consitantly louder than tv as well Many of the mono feeds are painfully loud, such as Insight radio for example. Having reported these things to the right places, one seldom is granted a reply by email, and if there is one all you get is that the levels are entirely inside all relevent...

Silly question about BBC iPlayer by Bill Wright[_2_]
It was stopping and starting, then it came up with 'Do you want to download the BBC iPlayer App? No more starting and stopping! No more buffering! No more left wing Bias!' (Might have made that last bit up) So I did. I then opened the App and it directed me to iPlayer. I then expected iPlayer to offer the choice of a live playback or the downloading of the programme file for later viewing,...

Indian call centres by NY
"Martin" wrote in message ... It's odd that the Dutch system for blocking cold callers works almost 100% and the UK system seems to be ineffective. We get less cold calls in a year than my daughter gets in a day. I wonder what we are doing so wrong that the Netherlands is doing so right. Is it that our TPS is...

Dolby Digital sound on BBC. by David[_9_]
When watching BBC HD on rare occasions the program will have Dolby Digital sound I wonder if it is a cost thing, however I've noticed the Tennis has DD. I thought DD was used in movies to improve the experience of the film with stereo, music and effects etc. but tennis broadcast just features a commentary and the surround of the crowd which I would think ordinary TV sound would...

[OT] Audio on 405/VHF by Paul D Smith[_2_]
I was idly wondering whether modern hardware, which is often very powerful and controlled and configured by software, could be reconfigured to produce a 405/VHF signal when I stumbled across an article which claimed that audio on 405/VHF was amplitude and not frequency modulated. Now I remember using a radio which had a wide FM range, up into band-III, to listen to ITV in ye olde days. Did...

Q about coax & heat by Tim+[_2_]
My daughter asked me to run some coax cable for her TV from one room to another crossing under the hall. The only way we could get a cable though was next to the CH pipes. Is this likely to damage the cable in a timescale that either of us is going to care about (like weeks vs decades)? Secondly, I was going to use some brown stuff I had in my garage that has air-spaced cavities within it a...

Elf and safety at home by Brian-Gaff
It was indeed interesting to note that even side cutters in the old days were made without insulated handles, and as has been said elsewhere, everyone had a neon screwdriver in their top pocket, specially placed to stab you in the chest, or when used, give you false confidence that the power was off. Then there were all those sheds wired up with unboxed choc blocks screwed to the door...

DTV modulator by [email protected]
The possibility of a 'modulator' for in-house generation of digital TV channels has been mooted. I think this one is a bit overpriced, regardless of how good it is. And you'd need an awfully big loft to put it in. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Digital-TV-Transmission-System-/291329959938 Owain
