Hot weather and co-ax cable by Bill Wright[_2_]
When there is a period of abnormally hot weather we normally get calls along these lines: "It's terrible reception during the day, then about ten o'clock at night it clears up, and it's OK until the next dinner time." The coax turns out to have an open circuit inner. The cable will have been loose on a roof (flat or pitched), and probably has been moving a bit each time the wind turns...

DVD Player! by Mr Pounder Esquire
A few years ago I had a stand up battle with Currys over a Samsung DVD player. It had only been used a handful of times before it packed up. It was 5 years old, but I got some money back. I then bought a Samsung Blueray DVD player from them, it has only been used ONCE and is less than 3 years old. It now will not play DVDs. Message was "no disk found" I used two old lens cleaning disks, no...

Wimbledon Red Button - Kudos to Virgin by fred
I really dislike Red Button access to events. It is so slow and prevents channel hopping. But I see we have direct access to minor Wimbledon matches on 991, 992, 993, 994, 995. It's a shame SkySports (I'm also a sub) can't do similar when they have multiple related events using the RB.

Can a PVR re-tune itself all on its own? by Roger Mills[_2_]
I've been aware for some months that the tuning setup on my Humax HDR-FOX T2 wasn't up to date - because BBC News was still on 80, and some of the recent additions weren't there at all - but it worked perfectly happily as far as I was concerned, so I didn't do anything about it. However, when I came to view BBC News last night, 80 was blank and I found that it had moved to 130 (and...

BBC multiplexes off? by Richard Tobin
The BBCA and COM7 multiplexes from Black Hill seem to be off the air. Are there problems elsewhere? BBCB is ok. -- Richard

Dim neons by Brian-Gaff
You have not lived! We used to get those big neon's that school labs used and connect one end to a bit of wire. If you connected that to some suitable voltage, you could make the neon glow simply by putting a finger on the glass. Touch the other end of the bulb and it was quite bright. Its yer electrostatic stuff again I bet. Talking of dim neon's though. There was as I think I said a...

Mad aerial question by Scott[_2_]
All aerials are grey aluminium colour. I wondered if it would be possible to paint an aerial blue, and whether this would degrade the signal. Would you use water based or oil based paint? TIA

confused about multiplexes by Stephen[_4_]
Hello, I'm currently watching freesat, so arguably there's no point paying someone to fit a tv aerial for me. I was wondering about fitting a loft aerial (I'm not brave enough to go up a ladder outside!) to see what channels I could receive. The local transmitter does not transmit all of the freeview channels. The digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker suggests that I could point to

If Virgin or Freesat or Sky distribute Insight Radio. I know its on freeview on channel 730, but I've been looking for some time and cannot find it on the others. Rnib are about as useful as abull in a car park. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

OT ramblings by Bill Wright[_2_]
My IT man says sarcastically (following a very minor IT triumph on my part) that he will make an IT expert of me yet. I replied, "When I was working I had the feeling that the technology was a bus and I was the little man with the briefcase and brolly running along after it but getting further and further behind until he finally collapses at the side of the road. IT would be the same." Just...

freesat boxes by Stephen[_4_]
Good morning, I have just moved into a house with no tv aerial but with a satellite dish, so I bought two Manhattan Plaza hd-s2 freesat boxes, on the basis that they were cheap! (about 40 each). Not having had freesat before, I wanted to test the water. Are there any other budget boxes I should have considered? I could not find any. One box has come with a remote control with small white...

Freesat bit error rates by Clive Page[_4_]
We have a small dish to get Freesat which feeds into our Panasonic TV which is Freesat enabled. The TV can provide three indications of the signal: strength, quality, and bit-error rate. Recently I had to move the dish (to avoid a neighbour's tree which was starting to get in the way) and so after re-aligning it had reason to check signal strength and data quality of various channels. All...

Which aerial manufacturer these days (longish) by Geo[_3_]
Been asked to fit an aerial for my daughter's friend. Her "new" bungalow has an old, slightly bent mast, with no aerial. The cable (brown semi-airspaced UHF) has been cut at the mast and just inside the roof. The mast bracket is screwed to the wood at the apex of the gable end. I have not yet been able to get up there to check the state of the fixing but suspect I will use 9" wall bracket and...
