Line of Duty - premature end of recording by Dickie mint[_2_]
We recorded this halfway through on "catchup" - Humax Foxsat HDR. On picking up 10 minutes (phone call) later it stopped just before the last caption preceding the credits. Was this the Humax premature ending bug or did someone at the beeb set the end of recording flag thingy too soon? Richard

York wired radio by Bill Wright[_2_]
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tkt4k5bjplhqqmn/3AHwKL8JfK I'm wondering if anyone here has any info on this. It appears to be a very ancient wired radio (or TV?) system, in York city. Bill

19" TV recommendations please by Norman Wells[_6_]
I only have room for a 19" TV, or at a stretch a 22", to replace an old 14" CRT with an STB for use in a small dining room mainly to watch the news over dinner. Viewing options in the local shops are very limited, but I see Amazon are doing a 19" Samsung for 136 which seems good value. Does anyone have one of these or any other recommendations please?

Odd coloured tvs. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
The world seems to be pretty boring according to a friend of mine. He wants to buy a tv with a green coloured cabinet to match some decor. Do any manufacturers make one? I did point out that surely its better to buy a tv on its specs, facilities and its picture quality rather than what colour the cabinet is. After all there is hardly any cabinet these days, is there?

Retuning headaches. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I got fed up with being nagged to retune in the London area last night so did a retune. The new London station, either called London Live or London Life depending on whether you believe ti traler or the text on the screen, is on ch 8, however, the box then lost two news channels and several of the UK TV channels and ITV3. OK Lets try another aerial. This time it seemed to work but also had...

a lift by Bill Wright[_2_]
Were getting complaints from Belmont viewers in S Yorkshire about loss of reception. Complaints from Belmont viewers in the Hull area (where the aerials point south) are more strident. Apparently some people who have tried a retune because of loss of reception have been rewarded with London programmes. Its foggy on the coast by the way. Bill

Local TV from Crystal Palace by Bill Wright[_2_]
In central London it appears that ch29 is 14dB below chs 28 and 30. Anyone who wanted to equalise the levels would have to use rather expensive filters for all three of these channels, which in practice would mean that they would use expensive filters for every channel. Presumably communal systems will simply carry 29 at a low level, and reception will be hit and miss. As this is a SFN I...

Humax Foxsat 500G HDR: No Standby light; seems dead by Maurice[_3_]
Bought 2 years ago, last night it was working fine before putting it into standby mode overnight. This morning it would not come out of Standby (tried new batteries in remote). So Switched mains supply off and left for an hour or so, but when then switching on again, no Standby light appeared, nor is the info window illuminated. (Power *is* getting into though, as can see the yellow &...

Smart TVs and Skype by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Just picked this up in a forum: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/159825-Skype-permanently-online?p=943375&viewfull=1#post943375 Seems that digital TVs might be developing so many other uses that we should be on the lookout for potential problems. I don't have a smart TV or use Skype, but maybe this will be of interest to somebody who does. -- Jeff

On last weeks episode the Curate with the Well equiped car said he might be able to pick up Radio Luxembourg (during daylight hours). I listened to this in the 70, and my recoollection is of a nightime only programme. Am I remembering right? and was it different in the 50s?

"Smart TV" conversion box needed by Lobster
I have a Western Digital Live Media Player, which I use primarily to stream recorded/downloaded video to the TV. It also provides a small number of (mostly obscure and all unwanted by me on the TV) internet services: facebook, acuweather, picasso, etc. It's frustrating that there are so few (and given that they keep updating the firmware, I don't know why they can't add some useful...

PSB1 Waltham/Nottingham this evening by CD
Anyone have any problems tonight? Argus TV was recording 9PM Space prog on C4 HD from Nottingham, when it informed me there was no signal around 9:18. This Argus software allows a fair bit of fiddling/testing & indeed no signal on any of the HD channels, SD were fine. Went downstairs & tried the seldom used Freeview HD tuner on the telly & it was on. A check on Argus showed the signal came back...

Little fun thing on the way to and from Folkestone today on the M20. Dutch Road Traffic news breaking into normal radio.
