A better YouTube receiver by TonyGamble
We are now spending more time watching YouTube than BBC or ITV. I can feed it to my Panasonic plasma with either my Humax HDR 1105 or my Amazon Firestick. The former is hard wired to by broadband and the Firestick relies on the WiFi from my router. First problem is that neither support HDCP 2.0 and that is what I need to rent an HDTV from YouTube. Second is that both suffer from delays when...

BBC Scotland - scope for confusion? by Scott[_2_]
I see that - subject to Ofcom consent - there is to be new BBC Scotland television channel. As far as I can see, it will be SD only and will take the position of BBC Four (channel 9 on Freeview). All the opt-outs on BBC Two will transfer to the new channel so in effect BBC Two Scotland will end, to be replaced by BBC Two England. BBC Two SD and BBC Two HD will be the same. 1. Will having a...

Would you believe it ? by Phi
Kodi has been the subject of controversy for some time, and addon repository TVAddons has, in particular, been criticized from many quarters. Having recently announced that it will no longer proactively check for pirated content, TVAddons is suggesting that there's a very good reason to use Kodi addons to stream online content -- security. The site says that one of the reasons Kodi is so...

get_iplayer v3.07 problem with --available-since hours) command by Johnny B Good[_2_]
I've just updated get_iplayer via the ubuntu PPA (using Linux Mint 17.1) and the "--available-since hours" command no longer produces any listings, nor even an error message. I've checked out the documentation and the FAQs but can't find an answer. I've tried the cache rebuild command and even restarted the computer but all to no avail. The previous update to v3.06 just over a month ago...

Sony Android TV's and screen mirroring? by Kenny
Bravia 4K 2015, bought 2016, Screen Mirroring/Miracast not working right, I think it was a recent firmware update caused it though it always seemed a bit iffy. Laptop sees the TV and the desktop appears on TV but it seems to freeze there, doing anything on laptop is not followed on TV. It may appear 5 minutes or more later but slow and jerky. Mobile phone which connected to TV before now...

RFID wallets by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
In article , Woody wrote: Hold a bright LED torch behind the card and you can see the chip - very often in the lower right when the card is viewed from the front. A 2mm drill through the chip will kill it completely. Is it established that this does not invalidate the card or cause it to cease working via contact?

How are you Fire TV folk going to see your YouTube from 01.01.18 by TonyGamble
The YouTube app on the Amazon Fire TV is not going to work after the end of this year. What do the folk who use it around here plan to do? Does one load a third party app on the Fire TV or bin it and buy something like a Roku? When I did my research a couple of months ago the spec of the new Fire TV was better than that of the Roku - but without YouTube I guess I'll rarely use it. Tony

Pontop Pike by Bill Wright[_3_]
I watched that programme last night, the one on BBC1 about the teenage boy who seemed to be a girl in a boy's body. It was a very moving programme, but that's beside the point. There were lots of outdoor shots, and trying to be atmospheric and show what a **** tip Co Durham is (when you're a meeja person) there were shots of the huddled-together rooftops. I froze the frame a few times and...

Bitrates by Vir Campestris
.... a thought from the other thread. Now that DTV is getting bitrate squeezed enough to be annoying, and we don't want a satellite dish on our thatched roof - are the live BBC/ITV streams good enough to be watchable? What bitrate are they? Andy

sky fitters and roofs by Andy Burns[_12_]
Neighbour has had a dish on chimney for years, and pays the sky tax, he asked about sky Q the other day, it sounded like the features would suit them, so today a sky van appeared outside their house, I knew it'd need a new wideband LNB, and assumed they'd just swap it, or maybe replace the whole dish for good measure. Just poked my head out for a look and he's added a new dish on the...

Things you miss on tv when you cannot see. by Brian Gaff
Apparently the lady presenting the weather the other night only had one arm. I'd never have known from the voice...:-) I mean is this really that unusual? Not everyone is the same after all. Ask the same person what the forecast said they could not tell you as they were too busy worrying about her missing arm. Oh dear. Brian

Radio I Player vs Podcasts? by Brian Gaff
I don't know if this also happens on TV but recently say in the last 6 months or so when listening to certain radio programs, on R4 mainly either live or on I player, you hearer, for an extended version of this interview, download the podcast of this program. If they consider a longer version good enough, why not simply broadcast it and make the programme longer? There already lots of...

When they show old stuff... by Brian Gaff
Does anyone even bother to listen to the sound track to see if you can actually understand it? An old episode of Colombo and one of the Avengers I encountered recently suggest that they do not. In the case of Colombo there seemed to be a kind of buzzing on the sound, while on the Avengers it sounded like some aggressive form of noise gate was being used that took away almost everything low...
