SONY VTX-D800 by Mark Lord
Thanks, unplugging the unit for a few seconds seems to have solved the problem so will see how it goes from here. I also have the software version 1.04.01 so not sure where the problem lies, I have sent Sony an email anyway, just to see what they think. Thanks for the help,

Lidl Satellite system by David van Kemenade
I found it he http://www.lidl.co.uk/gb/index.nsf/pages/c.o.oow.20030821.p.Satellite_System On the picture it says "ANALOGUE". So it looks as if you won't be able to receive any BBC channels on it (except perhaps BBC World TV, but I'm not sure). David

Free to air - Freeview or Satellite? by QrizB

Freeview Five Live & Five Live Extra question by Aztech
"John Key" wrote in message ... Anybody know why there appears to be a substantial difference between the sound quality of these two stations? Surely they would be broadcast at similar bitrates. Or is one signal processed differently to the other? Most of the new BBC digital stations are 'compressed' or...

Epson EMP-5500 colour fringes by ph12
Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but it's worth a try.... Have one of the above that we use for PC work, which has worked fine, but recently although the centre of the screen is OK there is a blue fringe down one side and a yellow down the other. Does this sound like something out of adjustment or is the projector on its way out? TIA Peter

Most are perfect, but there are ocassional breakouts on say BBC1 etc I am so close perfect reception that I am sure an upgraded indoor aerial will do they job.

Does the Scart socket on a TV have any outputs? by Kev
The scart socket on a TV is usually used for input of signals (say DVD to TV) Does the socket also have outputs? i.e would the socket produce audio out for connection to a hifi?

SONY VTX-D800 by Mark E
I'm well impressed by my Sony box, much quicker than any other I've tried. Haven't had any problems with interactive stuff. What version of software are you using (I've got 1.04.01), and have you tried unplugging it from the wall for a few seconds? Do you get picture break-up or loss of radio sound? Apart from that, I can't think of anything else that could be wrong.

Satellite system by Dazed
In article , says... A local store is advertising a satellite receiver and shows the icon of the Astra and the Eutelsat satellites. It is described as an "analogue" device. Is your local store Lidl? If so, then 40 quid gets you a universal LNB, a 80cm dish and all the kit to fit it. You also get an analogue satellite box...

Rigger's Diary - I could have died by Wrightsaerials
Up in the customer's loft I noticed a large framed colour photograph showing an exceptionally attractive young lady in mortar board and gown. At that moment (before I had time to think) a female voice from below shouted "Are you all right? Do you want a cup of tea?" "Oh yes please" I said. "I was just admiring this photograph of your graduation. You look absolutely stunning." "A lot younger and...
