Pace Twins made by Motorola? by Richard Watkinson

Rigger's Diary: I could have died (again) by Andrew @ Home
Sorry for jumping in, but this reminded me of a tale about one of my colleagues in Newcastle, He had built up a rapport with an old lady and her family over a couple of years. Any products they purchased were delivered outside normal hours and often on his way home, on each occasion whilst installing the equipment the old lady would provide him with a mug of coffee and a bowl of nuts (peanuts,...

Pace DTVA sudden complete loss of signal by Dave Kahn
Pace DTVA box has been working perfectly for over a year. Suddenly there is no signal at all. The menus still work fine but no channels are found. I tried re-scanning, I tried resetting to factory settings, and I tried unplugging the unit from the mains and reconnecting it. No change. The aerial and cable seem OK because if I remove them from the SCART unit and plug them back into the analogue...

Boosters? by Keith Bailey
There is no such thing as a free lunch. An aerial "booster" amplifies the noise just as much as the signal. If your real problem is poor s/n rather than lack of signal then you won't be any better off. John Rumm was right on the money in his reply. A normal booster might do the trick. Go to http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/coverage.html and check your coverage. If you are in a reasonable...

Sony VTX-D800 vs Netgem i-player by CyberSOGA
Both are exellent boxes that support S-Video via scart, the Sony has the edge when it comes to channel changing speed but generally they are about the same speed, I think they might even be using the same chipset - so it'll come down to whether you like the look of the thing really! The Sony can be sat on it's side, it comes with rubber sticky feet and there are recesses on the box so you can do...

Masthead amp power in loft by Wrightsaerials
Put a smoke alarm in the loft. Preferably one of the ones that can be linked to another, with the paired alarm somewhere where you'll hear it We have a customer who once had a fire in his loft. This was a very large house. The fire was caused by a 12V power supply of the wall wart variety used to provide power for an alarm system. The unit was plugged into a mains socket and was on the...

Boosters? by Dom Robinson
In article , says... Hi. New to the group, so forgive if this is vile repetition. I'm borrowing a set top box - one of the old on digital boxes - and using it for freeview. Unfortunately my signal's not strong enough to bring up many of the channels, so I was thinking about getting a booster to help. Can I just use a normal...

Dr Sim RGB2VGA Box and Sky+ Jaggies by David Longley
I've recently swapped my Sony Digibox for a Pace Sky+ box and think I've noticed a marked increase in the visibility of "jaggies" since the swap. I'm using a Dr Sim RGB2VGA box which takes the SCART RGB output from the SKY+ box and sends out to the VGA input of the Pansonic PW4 plasma. Is there anything I can do to improve matters apart from buying a video processor? -- David Longley

sky digiboxes with s-video to TV by Jootec from Mars
Whilst thinking about changing my ancient and slow terrestrial digibox, changing over to sky is a possibility. Would like sky+ but the 249 asking price and then asking 10 per month extra rental is taking the ****. One or the other okay but both ... Since using RGB out from the digibox to TV needs to go through my DVD player which reduces the Contrast on the digibox picture badly. Increasing...
