Humax PVR - 9300T fails to record. by Alaric
I seem to recall that some time back there was a thread about Humax PVRs failing to record TV programmes. Yesterday, I set my machine to record "Hidden Histories - Britain's Oldest Family Businesses" on BBC 4 (not HD) at 9pm yesterday evening. I receive my signal from the Rosneath relay transmitter, which is within clear line of sight. Later in the evening when I wanted to watch the...

Quest glitching by Brian_Gaff
Has anyone else had this the last few days? I cannot see what the effect on the picture is, but it momentarily pauses, then sounds sort of like an echo in a large room before returning to normal. Crystal Palace if that matters. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

LG Freeview/DVD recorder by Dickie mint[_2_]
This is a request for help, with very little facts, sorry. On another forum someone has a "purple light instead of a red one", and the device won't stay on. She is in no way even a little bit technical! We've made the obvious suggestions - powerdown reset, LG "press on button for 5 seconds" reset - but she doesn't seem to grasp these! We've asked her what LG model, but no reply to that.

PVR humming to itself through the night by Another John
We upgraded our main PVR a few months ago, and moved the Wharfedale (160DTRHDMI) we've had for several years to the bedroom. We've discovered that its has an annoying habit: at seemingly random times it fires itself up and hums away for about 30 seconds or so, then stops. (I presume it's the hard disk we can hear.) It's not very loud, but it's often enough to wake up a light sleeper. It...

Anyone understand humaxrw? by Mark[_6_]
My Humax PVR has lost all its recordings today. I have hooked up the HDD to a PC and am running humaxrw to try to recover the files. If I run almost any command. eg. humaxrw -l 0: I see the following error message: "Directory 1: Permission denied"

I have bought a second hand spectrum analyser..... signel levelslook rather low but the TV seems OK with them. by Stephen[_6_]
My spectrum analayser is calibrated in dBm, so as I understand it, I need to add 108.75 to the figure to get the corresponding figure in dBuV fopr a 75 ohm impedance. I have two TV sets. The first one is fed from a Log Periodic on Sandy Heath and the peak signal levels as measured come out to: ch dBm dBuV

Best source of information on transmitters by Mark[_6_]
Where is the "best" place to get information on TV transmitters? Or, to put it another way, is ukfree.tv's information accurate, particularly their coverage maps? Following problems with my Humax PVR they have advised me to retune the PVR to channels that the transmitter does not use! Our aerial is directed at Ridge Hill and Humax is telling me to use channels 50, 53, 55, 57, and 59. I assume...

Somebody missed the news by Davey
Item 1: Big mess this afternoon when RBS/Lloyds etc ATMs don't let anyone get money from their machines, can't pay for petrol, can't pay Morrisons, etc. Item 2: Advert on TV this evening saying how useful Lloyds Credit Cards are to Joe Public. Oops.

Who sets volume levels? by Brian Gaff
I have noticed several things recently. Well it comes and goes.. Basically, hd channels all have quiet audio compared to sd Most stations in the main five are reasonably matched in level between sd, but many of the others are all over the place. Quest is quiet, Drama is loud etc. So what is going on, is there a standard? As for than audio description track, even at full whack and normal...

Missing subtitles by Davey
I sat down to watch the second episode of Hidden Kingdoms this morning, recorded in HD, with subtitles selected. Only there were no subtitles. I went back to the recording of Episode 1, and there they were, right where they were supposed to be. Back to episode 2. Suddenly, at about 11 minutes in, the subtitles appeared, and stayed on until the end. Somebody else with his finger on the wrong...

TOT Those new light bulbs. by [email protected]
Apologies for raising this here, but I don't know another forum where the topic might get taken seriously. These new light bulbs - the ones with the little bulb inside an old style casing - seem to blow very quickly. They don't seem to last anything like the promised coulple of years. Or have I just been unlucky?

Stan Cullymore by Pinnerite[_2_]
Yesterday, I watched in astonishment when the Sky interviewer made a very pointed inappropriate observation to Mr Cullymore. To his credit, her took her to task quietly but determinedly. She side- stepped the matter very well but I thought her remark was disgusting. No one else seems to have mentioned this aspect of the interview on this NG. I don't have time to scour all the web sites the...

cost saving for mad hatters by Bill Wright[_2_]
I have occasional conversations with a woman who has moved house three times because of radio waves entering her brain at each location and making her ill. She has metallic mesh over all the windows. Her latest house had a redundant VHF FM aerial with no downlead which she spotted and decided was the reason she felt ill whenever she went near the TV set. The FM aerial was removed and the...

John Hindley of Dawlish by Bill Wright[_2_]
Sorry to tell you that John died last weekend. He continued to install aerials for years after his heart transplant. In the end he died of liver cancer. He was a highly amusing man, a good chap to have a pint with. His partner Jackie Stent is also an aerial installer. I don't know as yet whether she will continue the business. Bill

Spying on garden beasties by Tim+
Having watched some "Winterwatch Unsprung" I feel inspired to fit an IR IP cam at the back of our house. Anyone done this? Got any recommendations regarding kit? Just had a quick look on eBay and came across this. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300997295323. Spec looks reasonable but first hand experience would be much appreciated. Tim
