BBBC points cameras with a tenth of what the MOD gets to run an army, an air force and a navy on. by [email protected]
MINISTERS are today slammed for allowing the BBC to get away with huge licence fee increases WITHOUT Parliament having a say. Lord Fowler, head of the BBC Charter Review Committee, said: "The BBC now receives £3billion from the public. On the basis of the BBC's bid this will rise to over £4billion in the next seven years. More people now spend longer online that watchng the box yet the...

patronising digital advert by Bill Wright
I've just seen an advert on BBC-1 for the government's digital switchover help scheme. This is intended to help those over 75 make the switch from analogue to digital TV. The advert showed a garulous old fool who seemed to lack social awareness and common sense. The young relative and the young engineer exchanged meaningful glances, as if to say, "She can't help being daft; she's old." How...

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).

How to Access Viera Link on Panasonic TV? by Davy[_2_]
I have just bought a Panasonic Viera TX32LZD80 which I want to connect to my external powered speakers. I need to be able to control the volume using the TV remote. The manual doesn't explain how but I understand from other posts that I need to go to the VieraLink menu and set the 'speaker' to external. However when I press the VieraLink button or try to access the setting through the menu...

BBC News Blunder by Java Jive[_2_]
"Powys man gets broadband via satellite over Africa" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-mid-wales-40745533 " they are positioned above the equator to maximise coverage." Oh dear! Actually, they are positioned over the equator because that is the only place you can obtain a geo-stationary orbit, enabling fixed dishes to work. Satellites that aren't in geo-stationary orbit

Rusty 'Sky' dish by Tim Jones[_2_]
I bought a ‘Sky’ dish from eBay eighteen months ago and am annoyed to find that it has already gone quite rusty, even though all the ‘official’ Sky dishes in this area (even those that have been up for years) are fine. I would like to replace it, so as to avoid continual repainting, but how can I tell if a replacement dish won’t go rusty? Are Sky dishes made of aluminium? Is there a...

Masthead v Indoor Amp - simpleton question by Woby Tide
I have searched and think I know the answer but because the search terms are so common I tend to just get shop websites. What's the fundamental difference between a masthead amp and an indoor amp..if used in a loft with power? I.e. I've investigated the setup in our new property. Within the loftspace I have found the aerial, approx 1 metre down the cable there is a power supply with an indoor...

BBC Trust - no idea engineering experience whatsoever by DAB sounds worse than FM
The members of the new BBC Trust have been announced, and there is not a single person with ANY knowledge of engineering / technical issues on it whatsoever. The BBC Governors did have a communications engineering professor on it, although a fat lot of good he did in stopping the BBC adopting the ridiculously out-of-date DAB system. Also, the BBC is actually unregulated with respect to...

Cancelling Sky by Tim Rogers
Got the basic Entetainment package. If I ring Sky up tomorrow will they cut me off straight away or do I have to give one months notice? I assume that I will then goto 'FreeSat' status? If I wish to resubscribe then can I just do so for a month and then unsubscribe again? Tim

OT - DAB by mike
I live in an area where all forms of reception are a bit iffy. I wonder if I could improve things with a DAB set to get more radio programmes - I don't want to switch on the telly to get Radio 5! And bfore you ask, it would be Freesat, not DTT sourced - DTT is also iffy. I know it won't be particularly good quality; what digital stuff is now the bosses have a big "make it worse" knob, but my...

Intermittent loss of sound on Freeview by [email protected]
A simple question. We recently installed a Panasonic digi-box for the UK Freeview channels. The reception is fine but after a hour or so, the sound keeps cutting out intermittently - this seems to be the case for BBC, ITV/E4 and the other free channels. Any idea what could be causing this? I should add that we have never had any problem with terrestrial viewing. Thanks in advance.

External HDD for Humax HB-1000S by David[_13_]
Got the box today and it seems to be working fine. I tried to use a USB stick for recording (well, USB adapter and SDHC card) and the Humax said that it could not format the USB stick. Haven't tried with a real USB stick yet. Can a PC tell the difference between a USB memory stick and a USB hard drive? The memory stick is a Solid State Device (so SSD). Anyway, I began idly searching for an...
