Amazon malfunction in prime?... by Brian Gaff
In other words. I've not been near their site for nearly a week this morning two emails come through and I've been given a gift for Christmas. A free month of prime. I don't want Prime I never asked for it. So being the careful person I am I did not click the link in the offending emails, I went to my bookmark in firefox. Sure as they said I have been enrolled. So why? Seems totally random, but...

HD guard interval and symbol duration by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've just had a look at the data streams from our local TX. The SD muxs give a specific value for guard interval and transmission mode. But the HD lists 'AUTO'. So what are the actual times for the guard interval and symbol lengths these days for HD DVB-T2 in the UK? Jim --

OT question by Bill Wright[_3_]
What are the parameters that set the speed of electromagnetic transmission in a vacuum? I've googled everywhere but I can't find the answer. It's easy enough to find the figure but WHY? Why not 29,979,245.8 metres per second or 2,997,924,580 metres per second? Bill

****** Birdbrain Macaw (now "James Wilkinson" LOL), the Sociopathic Attention Whore by Peeler
On Wed, 27 Dec 2017 17:10:44 -0000, Birdbrain Macaw (now "James Wilkinson"), the pathological attention whore of all the uk ngs, blathered again: Why did he specialise in insecticides? Was it a particularly bad school for cockroaches? Maybe he cycled to school past farms and got ill. Driveling idiot!

iPhone 4 question by Mr Pounder Esquire
Don't know where else to ask. I have been given a iPhone 4. The power button does nothing at all when pushed, so I tried the trick in the below link. It did not work. Skip to 1.49 secs in. Yes, I can see the reasoning here. However, when I push the power button I expect to see something move to make contact. Nothing does. And yes, I did try a spot of WD40. Is the power button broken or am I...

Crackdown on tv pirate devices by Aloysius

Together with the Federation Against Copyright Theft, police are targeting sellers of Android-style set-top boxes and believe that thousands of pubs could be customers. In addition, three torrent sites have been closed...

Sky q and freesat by sintv[_2_]
Sky are changing everyone to Skyq and this should be done by 5 years or so. If a customer stops subscribing the Skyq box must be returned so a customer wont be able to put his SkyHD box back in as LNB is wideband - unless a hybrid LNB was fitted. In any case once everyone has Skyq, there will be no use for the SkyHD transponders so they will be turned off so you'll have to get a Humax(eg)box to...

OT Is it me? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Afflicted by post-procedure pain I tire of the gradually brightening ceiling and wearily put the telly on, at 7.50am, seeking diversion. BBC1 has a brown alpha-female (called 'nagger' apparently!) and a subservient white male wimp. They introduce a silly but seemingly harmless item about a dog that is pampered excessively. The dog's owners turn out to be two homosexuals. The next item is...

Amazon Fight Back by Yellow[_3_]
Heads up! Just turned on my Fire Stick to be asked if I want to install Firefox or Silk which would then allow me to continue to use youTube. I have gone for Firefox and it works lovely.

Star Wars Rogue 1 - where is it showing on TV? by David[_14_]
I have been chasing my tail on t'Internet trying to track down where Rogue 1 is showing (if at all). I would have thought that with the new Star Wars release it would have been all over the place but I keep seeing references to it being on Netflix in July 2017 then nothing. The link for Netflix returns a 404. I realise that I can by the DVD but I would like to use an all inclusive service...

Samsung Smart TVs and Android by David[_14_]
We have a UE22H5600AK Samsung TV. It is "smart" and has the multi-colour logo button on the remote control. Now you are supposed to be able to do all sorts of clever things like playing videos from your phone or tablet, and I am trying to do this but it isn't working very well. The Samsung app on the tablet can work as a remote control.

phone scam involving television service by Clive Page[_4_]
We get junk calls on our landline every day or so. Mildly annoying but not yet enough to actually spend money on trying to thwart them. In the past they have usually been from "Microsoft Security Department" or else "BT broadband security" or something computer related. But for the last few weeks most calls have started by saying something like "It's about your television service - you are...

Strange BBC programming (for a change) by Davey
BBC1 is showing on Monday in the mid-afternoon slot, a new episode of Father Brown. It is marked as 1 of 10, and the title has not appeared before, as far as I can see. So far, so good. On Tuesday, there is another 1 of 10, but this time one that has been shown before. So what is coming on Wednesday? No Father Brown, but Raiders of the Lost Ark. Makes sense to somebody, I'm sure.

How things have changed by Bill Wright[_3_]
My friends in the aerial rigging trade are remarking on how slow it is. How things have changed! In the 70s everyone wanted to get a colour TV and many of them decided that the lead-up to Christmas would be the time. The rush started on October 22nd, which was the date when ITV used to crank up their Christmas promotion, and also the approximate date when the winter quarter started. So ITV...
