Coaxial plugs. How do I stop them falling out? by Marky P
I find co-ax plugs are quite loose. All the conections to my 4 way splitter are loose, and any other point where cable joins together using coax plugs are loose! I know there are better connectors available, but can anything be done to make coax plus fit tighter? Marky P.

How are Freeview relay transmitters financed? by Roger Mills[_2_]
Just been staying with a friend in Keswick, who gets Freeview from a local relay transmitter. It's way past DCO in that area, so I was surprised to learn that that relay only carries about 3 of the muxes. My friend can get the original 5 channels, plus other BBC channels - BBC3, BBC4, News, Parliament, etc. plus some radio stations - but not the likes of ITV2/3/4 etc. Is this because the...

'Tenant says telly flashes blue when it should be off'. She was in her ninties, and had insomnia. She lives in one room in a care home. Every night at 3am the Hitachi switches from a red light to a green one and the screen flashes blue. "It's rather disturbing."

BBC left/liberal/green bias in the last few days by [email protected]
Last night the BBC TV news had an item about the cuts in the education budget. The story was that the government had decided to cut millions of pounds from the last government's proposed education budget, but no mention was made of the fiscal reasons was given, so it sounded as if they'd done it for their own reasons. This item was illustrated by a series of shots showing abandoned school...

Antiference: sometimes I dispair by Bill Wright
I have been an Antiference customer since 1970. That's 37 years of using their products through thick and thin. It's been a 'for better or worse' experience, but in general it's been pretty good. However the TC range was abolished after 30 years because Anti felt the need to comply with the requirements of the CAI benchmarking scheme. That meant that the Trumatch dipole had to go because it...

Will I get much improvement from the 6Meg...

Freeview TV guide magazine? by Dave Farrance
Which printed magazine is the best TV guide for Freeview? I find that making daily printouts from www.tvtv.co.uk is too time consuming, and printouts never use page space as efficiently as a printed magazine anyway. -- Dave Farrance

Sky News v BBC News by Bill Wright[_3_]
Sky had a still picture and a witness report of the M20 bridge collapse 25 minutes before the BBC showed anything. Sky also had video just a few minutes after the still picture. I wonder if people are now think of Sky rather than the BBC when they are a witness at a dramatic event. Hmm... Bill

New TV Recommendations by TheScullster
Hi all Following on from the "purple patch" post............ Yes, I know this is a frighteningly open-ended question, but where can I start looking for recommendations on new TVs? I have heard that the clarity of flat screens, particularly for fast moving images, can be poor. Alhough I'm quite sure that this screen type will be what SWMBO will be expecting! Any links to good recent reviews...

Freeview HD recorders....when? by Legend-11[_2_]
I've presently got a 3 year old Panasonic DMR-EX75 HDD/DVD Recorder and wouldn't mind upgrading to something similar, but with HD Freeview. I was very surprised to see that Panasonic never had anything out yet that incorporates the new HD Freeview in the way of recorders. Is anyone making them yet? Preferably something with both HDD and DVD recording. If not, has anyone seen news of...

Fixing aerial to chimney - bolts? by Geoff[_5_]
Hi, Is it permissible to fix an aerial to a chimney stack with bolts instead of a lashing kit? I want to replace a lashing kit that seem to have stretched and left the mast at an angle to vertical. The easiest way would be to use rawl bolts into the stack and attach mounting brackets to these. Stack is approx 5ft by 2ft 6" by 5 ft (visible height above roof) TIA
