TV Reminders by Norman Wells[_6_]
If you are a subscriber to Sky, which I'm not, it seems you can sign up to receive an email reminder whenever a certain film or programme is coming up on TV. That sort of thing would be useful to me, particularly as regards films that only come round once in a while which are easy to miss in weekly listings. Does anyone know of a similar free service covering Freeview channels, or have any...

Bizarre News sound quality by Davey
Just watched BBC News on Ch. 130, and both the report from Moscow and another one from somewhere else had such a high background noise level that the reporter could not be heard. Why do they transmit items like this? The Moscow one was obviously recorded, as the subtitles were in step with the reporter's mouth. -- Davey.

Sound hole in sponsers message. by Ashley Booth[_2_]
Using a Sky+HD box. After the end of part 1 etc the sponsers message comes up, after a second or so the sound goes off for about half a second. Happens with many programmes on ITV1. (Midsummer Murders etc) -- Ashley

Idea by Bill Wright[_2_]
Since there isn't room for a loudspeaker on the front of many modern TV sets, maybe we should turn the set to face the wall and watch via a mirror . . . Bill

Humax YouView box. by Ian Field
Not much in the way of external markings, but the screenprint legend on the PCB says its a DTR-T1000. As far as I've been able to find out, it does Freeview - but it also has an ethernet connector on the back - is it just as simple as running a cable to my router? Its also HD, so I'm wondering whether its backward compatible with an SD 16:9 TV?

Unable to get correct aspect ratio, Sky News by Terry[_3_]
My gym has a couple of large wall-mounted TVs. (Sorry, I should have checked make and model.) I asked them a week ago if they could correct the niggling problem that the bottom scrolling captions were never fully visible, and the sides were cut off too. ('TAX AVOIDANCE' becomes 'VOIDANCE', etc.) Today I found that the scrolling was now visible, but the edges were still missing. And there's a...

4G possible effects by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Not sure yet, but I've encountered problems with our Ch60- mux reception this afternoon (on three different receivers). And two weeks ago I saw that the base station top-end nearby was being changed. Since then I have detected some '4G' signals. (The base station is about 400 m away in about the same direction as the TV TXs.) I've taken some fresh spectra and will do some checking and then...

Freeview Play... WHY! by Jon[_2_]
What is Freeview Play, when is it coming and how can I get it? To stay relevant in a world of television where catch-up and on demand video is king, Freeview has announced its plans for a connected future. Managing director Guy North outlined the plans for Freeview Play at a London briefing for Pocket-lint and select other journalists and it looks like the company, which is so synonymous...

MatsuiM1602 PVR by Woody[_5_]
Has anyone either got a circuit diagram of the PSU of this beasty, or failing that know where I can get a 8S100L (or equivalent) thermistor which is in line with the supply presumably to stop surge. They are available from the likes of CPC but a 1 device (or less) and 4 P&P seems a bit of a waste of time. The device is continuous rated 1A, is 10R @ 25C, and 1R2 at 50% load and 0R68 at...

BBC Codecs and black hair by Vir Campestris
Is it just me, or do the Beeb have a problem with dark hair? I've noticed it before on TOTP1979, where if someone with an Afro jumps up and down the hair lags behind. But it's old stuff, coming off old film, and probably cheaply digitised. And Afro haircuts are sadly lacking these days. But tonight I noticed Miliband's hair doing it on the news. Andy

Unusual Oxford Ch 8 problem by vigman[_2_]
I have an unusual problem. I have a Humax Freeview HD PVR downstairs and a TVonics Freeview HD PVR upstairs, off the SAME professionally installed roof aerial. The Humax now tunes to the Oxford Test Transmission on Channel 8. However, the TVonics box does not. It has BBC3 on 7 and BBC4 on 9 but manually selecting channel 8 reverts to BBC3 on ch 7? I have updated all software for the TVonics...

Using PC as Terrestrial/Satellite recorder - obsolete? by David[_13_]
Does nobody use PCs as TV recorders any more? The decoder cards available on the Internet (Hauppauge and TBS) seem to be very old stock (judging by the reviews and the OS support quoted) and the Hauppauge card costs more than a stand alone receiver with USB recording (e.g. Humax HB-1000s for £74.99 at John Lewis). Is this a dying market? What are the benefits compared to using streaming...

What TV recording kit do I need? by Lobster
I'm a bit bewildered by the various options available. Currently have Virgin Tivo, but it doesn't permit streaming around the house which is what I want. I also have a NAS box (Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2) on to which I can save downloaded video files, which I can them view on any one of three TVs, all of which are either smart TVs or ethernet-connected via a streaming box. So, basically, I want...

suspicious by Bill Wright[_2_]
Over the years we've had a few of these. They ring up and tell you what they want, and don't seem too interested in the price. You go along and do the job. Every second you're there there's someone watching you. Certain areas of the premises are out of bounds. No-one seems too interested in the results of the job. There are various people there who you can't place within the group; young...
