ITV - Pixelation city by Geoff
I often notice how bad the digital picture on ITV1 is on Sky Digital. It's obviously because they've crammed too many channels onto one frequency. It's very noticeable on "I'm a celebrity" lately-more so than most other programmes. I read in this group recently that if you set your Sky box to pick up another ITV region, you'll get a better quality picture. Well I've tried several different...

Goodbye HTV News and 14:9 by aa
Shame to see that with the new regional news format in the West of England (ITV West News), local news output has reverted to 4:3 from 14:9. I believe Anglia regional news was 14:9 format too, I guess that's now changed back also? -- aa To reply by e-mail, 'Subject' line must start with " "

Sony Service Menu for iDTV by Damian
Does anyone know of the Service menu access code for the Sony KD32DX100 iDTV please? The conventional wisdom from some of the web sites I've visited is that to access the Sony Service menu you do do the following: (Courtsey http://www.kv32tweak.freeuk.com/) However, I've tried both on my KD32DX100, and to no avail. On a KV-32FX60 1.. Turn OFF the set from the televisions on/off switch. 2.....

Intermittent problem with DigiTV and SHUTDOWN.EXE by Steven
Hi, I mentioned this before in another thread but I'm now tearing my hair out over this so wondered if anyone was having similar problems. I'm using Robin's DigiTV Tasks script and the SHUTDOWN program to set scheduled tasks to wake my PC up to record programmes. When I'm in the house, it all works fine. Annoyingly though, when I set the PC up to record while I'm out, it never seems to...

Rigger's confusion -- uneven coverage of DTT muxes by Bill
I was in Dore, on the west of Sheffield, the other day. The postcode checker says 'no chance' but I had a look round with a log periodic and found strong DTT from the south. This turned out to be the Chesterfield relay, but only five muxes were present. These five were very strong (about 54dbuV) but there was no sign of the BBC mux on ch 34. Analogue from Chesterfield was pretty poor at about...

Freeview - Conspiracy #36 by ArmandAlegge
This is very probably just what is taking place ....we'll have a further clue if Birt is appointed Chairman of the BBC Governors. But Blair is going to loose the next General Election because the ageing Labour rank & file in the country will not turn out to deliver leaflets and canvass the vote. There will be a Conservative Government from May 2005 with Michael Howerd in No10.And that will be...

ITV Interactive by Archibold Pumper
I wonder if the new ITV plc have any plans to run any interactive stuff on freeview, now they have got the merger out of the way? I understand that there were plans some months ago but it never happened. It seems strange that the teletext service on freeview isn't connected with ITV as it used to be and still is on analogue. Does anyone know whether ITV are still planning to make use of the...

Can't record Channel 5 when STB is on by Lasitha
Hi, I've just got a Pioneer Freeview STB and I've noticed that if I try to record Channel 5 while the STB is on, I don't get anything. If I switch off the STB, everything is fine. Also I can record Channel 5 via the STB (this means I have to be watching Channel 5 to be able to record it). Any ideas why this is?. Thanks for any info.

Picture quality since last software upgrade by Deep Thought
I have noticed that the picture on most Freeview channels is slightly softer focus than it was before the version 3 upgrade - subtle but still there. Is this because bandwidth has been reduced or some other factor?.... (Sony IDTV). -- ----------------------- Deep Thought -----------------------
