Photographed this on my walk to work this morning:- http://www.markyboy.net/vmbox.jpg (850k) Last week, the daisy chained white cable ties were half way up the cabinet, holding the door closed, quelle surprise this morning it looks like this.

The second set exhibits exactly the same problem, so presumably the fault...

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...

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

Reliable PVR? by T i m
Hi all, Not sure this is the right place to ask but I've been tasked with helping some technophobe inlaws into the PVR world. Now, I understand Humax gear is known to be fairly user friendly but I'm not sure they are as reliable as I want to risk as a recommendation (based on the one the Mrs had before I got her a Topfield TF5800 like mine).

A new problem by Bill Wright[_2_]
'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." I explained that the telly was downloading the EPG, and that it was quite normal. Quite why the screen flashes blue I don't...

TV displays in shops by Bill Wright[_2_]
I was in a branch of a large supermarket chain the other day and I looked at the display of tellys. All looked bright and cheerful, at first glance. They were all fed by HDMI and were all showing the same programme in glorious HD. But at one end of the display were three Samsungs mounted one above the other. The pictures were dull and had low contrast. On close examination it became obvious...

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...

Exotic HDMI cables - scam? by bugbear
I've been doing a little reading, whilst looking to buy my Blu-Ray player. It appears that as long as your HDMI cable is over a threshold (i.e. good enough), since the signal is digital, a better cable above-and-beyond this level (and price) offers no actual benefit. This view is supported by quite a lot of consumer tests in the US

the long a by Bill Wright[_2_]
The oft-repeated plugs on BBC TV for an upcoming programme called 'Castles' is beginning to get on Yorkshire's nerves. She says it in a right exaggerated way. 'Car Sells' indeed! If we called it Conisbrough Car Sell folks would look at us funny! Actually there is a secondhand car bombsite at Conisborough. I wonder if he's ever thought to call himself Conisbrough Car Sell?

Anything positive to say about BBC HD quality. by David
Watched a couple of programmes on BBC HD last night I thought quality had improved, might just have been a program thing, so I wondered if all the complaints might have had a positive result. OR are they achieving nothing? Best wishes for the new year. David

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...

Incandescent bulbs - decision, plus Edison Screw question by Steve Thackery[_2_]
I never thought this would happen, but yesterday I took my big box of beloved incandescent bulbs (household bulbs, not specialist ones) down to the tip. In that box was my entire stock of CFLs, too, although they were emphatically *not* beloved. I've been installing LED bulbs in various places around the home, and I'm so impressed by them there just seems to be no point in using anything else...
