Need new box by Jonathan Swift
I need a new Freeview box. However, I've noticed one or two occasionally show films in letterbox format rather than pan-and-scan - even when set specifically to pan-and-scan. On a 4:3 set this reduces the picture. I'd like to get the Sony VTX800, or the Pace DTR210T. Does anyone have these, and is using them with a 4:3 set, and know if they also occasionally show some programmes in...

Crashing Nebula, please help by Barrie
Is anyone experiencing crashing of the nebula software using the lastest version of the software? Mine is running under Windows XP Pro and crashes every five minutes or less. I have uninstalled the card and software and reinstalled and the problems persist. Once it crashes, the only way back is to do a full re-boot and start over again. After a few reboots in an hour it gets rather...

Fusion box? by Brownie
Can anyone give me any idea about the upcoming Fusion HDD box? I was tempted to go for a Pace Twin, but noticed this is on the way although the little information I have seen suggests there may be quality and hardware issues already. Anyone got any inside knowledge?

FreeView/ Crystal Palace 11 Nov by Nick Yarrow
Last night, 11 Nov. at about 9.15 pm, my FreeView receiver (Nokia 221T) stopped working for a while -how long I do not know as I had to go out. Powering up later and then this morning, all was/ is OK now. Did anyone else have reception problems last night from Crystal Palace, please?

Pace Twin doesn't like small HD by Ian Clowes
Hi I mentioned a little while ago that I was going to put a smaller disk into my Twin to help me figure out how it stored data (less data being easier to dump and analyse). I've subsequently found that it doesn't like either a 5Gb or 10Gb disk. Has anyone got a disk smaller than 20Gb working? TIA

OT perhaps: DVRec/VirtDUB question by Default
I have a question regarding compressing my Nova-T files to DivX, via the DVRec settings. Occassionally I get a failure like: Failed (Compress). "Error decoding MPEG audio frame xxxxx (xx:xx): incomplete frame" Is there a way to tell VirtualDUB to ignore the error and continue processing the remainder of the file? Alternatively how can I correct the

Pace DTVA software upgrade now available by Simon Heather
The software upgrade seems to be only for the older DTVA boxes - i.e. with a software version Feb 2003 - the only obvious change I could find is that for 4:3 TVs there is a new picture option of True 16:9 format along with Letterbox and Full Screen. The software upgrade is dated 4 Sep 2003. - Simon.

Pace mobo has modem space by Ian Clowes
Just a quick note to let those with an interest know that the moterboard inside my Pace Twin has a set of solder pads marked 'modem'. Obviously there is no modem installed, but it maybe a simple manufacturing mod for them to start adding them as and when they want the box (or a varient of it) to be more TiVo like. IanC
