A bit off topic: TV next week by Woody[_5_]
In case you have not seen it the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures this year are being presented by Danielle George (38) who is Professor of Radio Frequency Engineering at the University of Manchester. The title is "Sparks Will Fly: How To Hack Your Home" and is showing on BBC4 at 20:00 Monday-Wednesday next week (29th-31st.) She takes one of three items to discuss each day - a

wifi question by Bill Wright[_2_]
I put this on uk tv broadcast but then thought there'll be more people on here who would know about wifi, so here it is on here as well. I have wifi analyser app on my phone, and I also have a wi-spy thingy. Why are almost all wifis on channels 1, 6, or 11? I can see that they are form the only combination of three channels that don't overlap at all, but I would have thought that better...

Damned Christmas by Bill Wright[_2_]
For weeks now Hil has been in daily receipt of parcels, and now and then she holds up a tiny garment, which is always decorated with bad taste slogans and/or cartoon characters, and I am expected to gush my approval. I have no idea what these things cost but I bet they're not cheap. Yesterday I was asked, "What do you think we should get the dogs?" to which I replied, "The rabbits," which...

Volume/Gain curio by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've finally taken the plunge, bought a new TV, and sadly waved bye-bye to my old CRT (analogue SD) set. Overall the new TV seems fine but I am puzzled by one curio. Have the feeling there is a 'fix' hidden away in the various 'settings' menus but as yet, not found it. So I'd welcome some info that may sort the puzzle. In brief: The output volume level when using the TV set's own tuner is...

Dolby Digital and Now box. by David[_9_]
On a trial of Sky Movies with my new Now box only tried one movie so far but I assume Sky do do DD with their movies when on Sky Satellite TV. If a Movie with DD is on Now box will the DD come through? If not is it the HDMi connection that does not transfer DD? Regards David

Update on BBC Three proposals by Scott[_2_]
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-30409171 I am surprised that BBC One +1 is to appear in place of BBC Three. So far as HD is concerned, I assumed that BBC Four would move to PSB3 (so everyone can get it) and BBC One +1 to COM7. Or is BBC Four for the chop? It would be illogical to have 1,2 and 4 on TV and no 3.

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?

Recording Internet Radio by Davidm
Next week 3 Counties Radio is doing an interview in which my son may be taking part. I'd like to find a way of recording this via the internet (3CR does broadcast via the internet). I'm not interested in recording copyright music, just this interview. I've done lots of googling, and quite a few programs around, but also lots of warnings about malware for many of them. Anyone got any experience...

Quantum physics, my old Humax sat box, and the M27 by Bill Wright[_2_]
No one seems bothered that M27 Junction 6 doesn't exist :-) Thus spake Mark Carver, who is to this newsgroup what Niels Bohr was to quantum physics, or what I am to the preparation of lamb dinners. Having watched Jim Al-Khalili's excellent programme, 'The Secrets of Quantum Physics' I can now see that junction 6 of the M27 doesn't exist simply because no-one is looking at it. And no-one...

SOT? Blue Ray player by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Slightly OT perhaps, but... Does anyone here have/use a Cambridge Audio 752D player? Now I've finally got an HDTV with HDMI I'm considering a player that can play various kinds of disc, etc. My experience of other CA gear is good, so the 752D looks like a candidate. But I don't yet know enough details even about HDMI. e.g. The TV I have and the 752D both support 'ARC' over HDMI. Does that mean...

Communal system oddity by Bill Wright[_2_]
Imagine our disappointment when we opened this box https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20141127_143749.jpg to find this https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20141127_143456.jpg An unusual way to split a signal and provide two outputs, each feeding 30 flats. Especially when the signal needed amplification. Bill

Channel 4 delay by Scott[_2_]
I was watching Channel 4 News tonight. One TV (SD) in the kitchen and one HD in the lounge. I was surprised that the SD version lagged about 2 seconds behind, as I always assumed HD would take longer to encode and decode. Any theories on this one? Scott
