Nebula and WinDVR, problems by James
Hi, I have just installed WinDVR and it seems that there is a problem with the nebula with this program. Setting up the capture device as nebvideo causes a crash that then stops WinDVR from ever starting up again : - ( Anyone know why this is happening? I think there is a message that mentions overlay, but it disappears too fast to read it. Re-installing WinDVR cures the problem until I...

Aver DVB-T playback jumpy by NealUK
I have one of the above PCI cards in my computer. When i was running Win98SE it ran fine, and recorded fine. I have since upgraded to Windows 2000 (and upgraded the driver), and the live playback is somewhat jumpy. If i video something, and then play it back, it plays back as normal (ie not jumpy) I have an XP1800+ processor, so it should be ok. Is it the fact that it is having to decode and...

Widescreen ON Sky with Freeview by SG
Hi all, I've just got Freeview set up and was wondering if all's well. When receiving a signal from the BBC the picture automatically adjusts to Widescreen. However if I go to the Sky Sports News the picture seems to revert to a square box! Does this mean that Sky does not send out widescreen pictures? Cheers Sam

Uncle Rupert & Uncle Sam by R. Mark Clayton
Rupert Murdoch was interviewed on the news today over threats that the Sun "newspaper" might back the Tories in the next UK General Election. Much of what was said was a matter of opinion, however Rupert seemed to lose the plot a bit over Europe. After praising Blair over his support for Bush he said that he was worried about "OUR" country's government becoming bound by the EU...

EPG with PVR Videobrowser by Bryan Jones
It has been mentioned, with a low-key fanfare that Daewoo have launched a VHS machine with built in DTT tuner. Probably more significant than we yet realise! The device is called an iDVCR (the 'i' standing for interactive and not integrated, as in IDTV) . It is the first product to market to use the 4TV data for EPG and Videobrowser! There has been much speculation about the 'Channel 704' on...

Freeview 'Fourtext' (Ch 50) relaunch by Jamie
Channel 4 text on Freeview on Channel 50 is now showing a 'Teletext on 4 - Coming Soon' message. However, by inputting Green, Blue, Yellow, Red, Yellow, Green and Text, you can get access to the full service. First impressions are impressive including the novel idea of numbers for pages. :-)

Radio amateurs are bad news by Kwikrigga
My least favorite customers are the radio hams. They ring up saying they want an aerial fixed up, which sounds promising, then it turns out its a great big HF beam weighing half a ton, with a rotator as well. All you can do is tell them how much the parts will cost and how much you will charge per hour, and thats when they get stroppy. They seem to think I am quite happy to spend half a day...

analogue signals on channel 14 by Bill
Not than damn fool thing on DTT - this is much more interesting! Just as religiomanics have been known to read the bible from cover to cover, I am at present working my way through a vast archive of Practical Televisions, dating from the Middle Ages to the Thatcher Years of blessed memory (calm down lads, that was a joke). In May 1967 an item by a Mr Keith Chaplin included a table of TV channels...

audio glitches with Pace DTTV .. by Alex Quant
I have one of those mini Pace DTTV boxes and have noticed, since the recent firmware update, minor audio glitches. I can describe them as audio wobbles or speed-ups which last for a fraction of a second. They don't occur often and I can't determine the frequency, but they can be a bit irritating. I've no problem with reception, as far as I can tell, and I didn't notice them before the update...
