Don't hoard your old stuff by Bill Wright[_2_]
OK I admit it. I am a hoarder. I look at the item, turn it over in my hands, and think, "Maybe it will come in..." The consequences of this behaviour have stared to hit me. When I moved to my present house 35 years ago I brought an awful lot of stuff. That was a warning, but I ignored it. This house is quite big and for a while I was able to accommodate the ever-growing quantity of 'stock'. Over...

'Perfection' my arse by Bill Wright[_2_]
Quiz show on BBC 1. The contestant, a teacher, didn't know what colour the live wire is in a 13A plug, yet remarked that he had taught kids how to wire plugs. Then the rest of them were far from sure. Where do they get these people? Bill

That ol' HD confusion thing.. by Davey
Killing time in Morrison's while the wife was doing the shopping, I wandered over to the 'electrical section', as we have been talking about getting a small TV for the guest bedroom, and I thought that I might see what was on offer. The two smallest sets they had (of three), with their brand name on them, were a 22" Full HD set, with 1080p resolution, and a 24" set, HD-Ready, with 720p...

Let 'battle' commence by Max Demian
TV broadcasters fear digital frequency spectrum battle http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25799928 "Demand for new mobile services is growing so fast that the UK's TV networks fear they may be squeezed out by competition for limited frequencies on the radio spectrum they broadcast over." -- Max Demian

Pair iPad Mini to YouView box by Geoff Pearson
I should be able to connect my iPad mini to my Youview box but it doesn't work. The box offers a code, I put that in the YouView app and then it fails to connect. Strong wi-fi signal, everything else connects perfectly. What might be wrong?

Mux 8 has launched at Sandy Heath...... According to my Spectrumanalyser... by Stephen[_6_]
my Spectrum Analyser is telling me that there is a Mux at Ch 34 from Sandy Heath. This appears to be the new Mux 8. (Mux 7 can be seen on CH 32.) When scanning Ch 34 on my TV set, it shows up with reasonable signal strength and quality. However, doing a manual search of CH 34 does not yield any channels so it appears ot be empty and reports no channels found.

Last nights BBC 1 London local news by Windy Miller[_2_]
The one at about 10:20pm. Many thin vertical lines alternating red/green over laying the picture. Anyone? Was not on any other channels and went away when they went to national weather.

Where did the reflections go? by Chris Holmes
I watched a little archive (colour) footage of Yehudi Menuin (sp?!) last night (probably from the 70's judging by Michael Parkinson's hair), and the lights kept reflecting of his instrument and causing a flaring effect. I don't think this happens so much these days with instruments or anything else. Is it a chane in camera technology? Lighting? or have the techies worked out how to avoid it?

TOT dire rhymes by Bill Wright[_2_]
As I cooked Sunday tea tonight I listened to some old British dance band tracks, and I was struck by the poetic ingenuity displayed by some of the lyrics. For instance, how on earth did someone think up, "You have so many thrillables, I'm all out of syllables!" Anyone else got a similar couplet that springs to mind? Bill

Portillo: Friday 17 January by Scott[_2_]
I hope this is a legitimate cross-posting. Did anyone else have a problem with recording Michael Portillo's Great British Railway Journeys on Friday 17 January? Using Humax HDR-FOX T2, series link, BBC Two HD. All other episodes seem to have recorded okay. PS. For members of uk.tech.digital-tv, I did threaten to post something about trains!

Windmills in Winter ... by Bill Wright[_2_]
Arfa Daily wrote: So. Here it is. Bloody cold. Severe frost last night. Skies were so clear you could see right across the galaxy ... My mate has just rung me to say that he has just driven past the forest of windmills up the road, and not a single one is turning. So I had a look at Gridwatch, and the demand is high. And what is wind contributing ? - less than 1%. Under 500kW....

Selective subtitles on Call The Midwife by Dickie mint[_2_]
On another forum someone is complaining that programmes with narration and actor/presenter speech only have the actor/presenter speech subtitled. Call the Midwife is mentioned in consistently never subtitling the narration. I find this a stupid action if true. Why should the BBC (or others) think the deaf only want to know what the actors are saying? Have any of our deaf or partially...
