Suing channels for DOGs burned into Plasma Screens ? by Simon Slavin
In Australia, that is. People ask about Plasma TVs here occasionally, and one common answer is 'Just say no.' citing burn-in. In Oz Channels 7 & 9 logos have been burned into a AU$3000 plasma TV screen after only a few days, prompting the owner to start talking about suing the broadcasters: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117,17904323-421,00.html This begs the question of whether the fault...

TETRA Interference To UK Satellite Transmissions? by Java Jive
In my naivety, I had thought that one of the advantages of FTA satellite was that it was less vulnerable to stray e-m interference such as noise from dirty switching, thermostats, etc. However, I've just recorded this morning's ITV3 Survival "Wild Voices Quiet Waters" which shows seemingly unmistakable signs of TETRA @ 56m:35s from program start. Is this possible? Reading, Berkshire, UK.

Indoor wideband freeview aerial? by [email protected]
I have a friend in Bournemouth who has rushed out and bought a Freeview box without checking the coverage first. Having plugged it in there's no joy, so a quick check on freeview.co.uk reveals that a wideband aerial is required. Thing is, she's renting in a flat with a shared aerial so an upgrade to the roof aerial isn't an easy matter. Is there an amplified indoor aerial that might work, or...

Sony KD-32DX150U, video out via scart + scart wiring by Chris
I have a Sony 32- 50U IDTV and I know that I can get video out from AV3 scart for recording but I'm guessing this is composite only. The manual is really unhelpful and doesn't mention what video format/s are output. Does anyone know what my options are? If I have to use composite I will, but I was hoping to get S Video or RGB with composite sync out. Second question, assuming I can get S...

New BBC/ITV Freesat service? by [email protected]
Hi, What is the current situation with the new BBC/ITV Freesat service? I thought it had already started in test form. After reading posts in this and other Newsgroups I tried swinging my dish around to Astra II (which seemed to get mentioned quite often) and got my Lidl receiver to scan for stations. I got it to work OK (lots of stations received) but I couldn't see any BBC/ITV stations. Am...

Sony setup oddities - any ideas? by Alan Paterson
I recently bought a Sony VCR off ebay to accompany my Sony TV. The VCR came with a Sony remote that works with both the video and Sony tvs. (There's a sliding switch at the top you can set to operate TV or video - tho' cunningly, basic things like the vol buttons work regardless of which way the switch is set.) Connected them (+ Freeview box + DVD player) with scarts, and two specific things...

Reverse SetPal upgrade? by John Smith
I have an old Labgear SetPal STB. It was the only STB that performed flawlessly on my weak and varying Freeview signal. After the last (final) OTA upgrade it became unstable and frequently locked up so I bought a Humax FOX which works-ish but is struggling with the low signal. I have read elsewhere in this group that it is possible to access the engineering menu of the Labgear/SetPal box and...

Sony VTX-D800U - s-video output via scart? by Clem Dye
Could someone who owns a Sony VTX-D800U answer a quick question for me please - does the unit output s-video via its TV scart? I downloaded the manual from the Sony website and it makes references to RGB, Y/C and PAL. I presume Y/C means s-video and PAL composite, but the manual isn't exactly that clear (to me at least). My RGB scarts are used up, but I do have an s-video socket up for...

Panasonic DMR-ES10 audio question by Brian Wescombe
I've just bought a Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD recorder which I've connected to a Sky box via the RGB Scart input. The recordings are fine (I used VR mode on DVD-RAM disc in LP/2hr format), but when I use VideoRedo to edit the MPEG file, I get a message that there were Audio resync frames removed, audio input errors and Input sequence errors. Is this normal behaviour? The sound seems to be fine...

Will the bitrate ever improve on most of these channels? by Deep Thought
As I am sure has been discussed many times there is quite a variation in picture quality between some channels which is not a signal strength issue but case of the broadcaster strangling the channels in order to squeeze more into a particular MUX.. is this EVER going to improve? The prospect of having to live with the lack of definition and detail on many of the DTV channels as they are now...

Help for satellite (NOT Sky) newbie by Steve
Folks, I'm already an experienced Freeview and Sky user, but I'm experimenting with a non-Sky satellite receiver for the first time. (I'm trying to set up my own Sky+ like arrangement without paying Murdoch any more money!). I've bought a Fortec Star Lifetime Classic receiver (because it was the cheapest I could find). It is a FTA-only receiver, and won't handle FTV. First thing to say is...

Extra Channels on Digital Terrestrial by Tim Rogers

Getting sound out of JVC AV32T4 by mike
I've just bought a 32" CRT and given my Philips LCD POS to my nephew; and it's so lovely to have a real picture again; in low lights nice blacks, detail in the dark bits, no bubbling round movement, even the lack of unnatural "bite" is nice, though computer generated captions suddenly look all soft. Even cartoons look better without strange digital artefacts being generated by slightly duff...
