Hauppauge DeC2000-T support by JimmyEatWorms
I have noticed that hauppauge no longer list this piece of crap on their site. Does this mean they no longer support it? Mine has just died as the remote no longer works and it is not detected by my PC any more. I'm bloody annoyed that I bought this thing but it's still the only product to work on SCART and USB :-(

Nokia Mediamaster 9600S memory problem by chris L
This receiver used to work OK until loaded with additional Astra channels. now it regularly shows err 5 (= memory problem) and does complete system re-boot every 50s regardless of channel. There should be a memory re-fresh function (go to standby and press up+down front pannel buttons together until 'reset'displayed then remove power) but this doesn't happen, there is some sort of internal reset...

Lightning and aerials - LONG POST by Duncan Ross
Interesting post - if I can add a few points; Lightning ground strikes occur when the potential difference between the cloud and earth is allowed to build up to such a voltage that the resistance of the air breaks down and the air is ionised. To do this you need lots of volts just to get there and enough power (volts x amps) to actually get the work done. When this happens the resistance of air...

I agree with ideas about disk space/fgragmentation being the most common culprit. 3) Lock up when using the remote, requiring power cycling to regain...
