Pace Ondigital box by Dave Hill
On Mon, 07 Jul 2003 13:12:48 +0100, Phil Brady wrote: I'll add to that. The front panel buttons also seem to work if you select subtitles. I'm afraid it's one of those unfathomable but irritating bugs with the software like the intermittent volume up/down and mute symbols on the screen, and the crashes when using the teletext channel. The mute and volume icons are not shown if...

What is the Deal with Freeview? by DeeInLondon
I've got one Freeview box at home, in addition to Sky TV but only so I can watch Sky TV whilst my Dad watches on of the 3 News Channels on Freeview.

I should say TV channels not teletext, games or radio. b) If they turn off the analouge channels 1 to 5 how...

Pace DVTA Madness by Craig Wood
I have been happily receiving Digital Terrestrial via my Pace DVTA for almost a year until about a month ago the Box started reporting "No Signal" To cut a along story short, the box was replaced by Empire Direct with a new one. However, the new one exhibits the same problem. It reports no channel found when scanning for new channels. When I connect another DVTA belonging to a friend and retune,...

Freeview reception question(s) by Graham Moore - Sun UK - Software Engineer
I'm looking for some opinions on whether people think I'll be able to receive Freeview easily. Where I live analogue pictures from Crystal Palace are generally very good for the town I live in. However for the past three or more years I've been picking up my channels up from NTL cable so have not really being taking too much notice of my analogue aerial picture quality. Now I'm thinking...

'TMPGEnc DVD Author' Problems with 16:9 & 4:3 ratio by Nick Mattocks
Try Sonic Foundry Vegas Video 4. I have successfully used this at work to correct the problem you describe. VV4 has the ability to zoom and change the aspect ratio unlike most other editors I've seen. I have found it's not so good with audio:video sync though unless pre-corrected using another application first (Pinnacle Studio seems to be able to correctly re-align the audio with the video...

Freeview mp2 audio cd audio by martin dibb
The MP2 samples are indeed non-standard, meaning a straight MP2 - MP3 conversion ends up with a 'choppy' sound. For this reason I use TotalRecorder and record directly to MP3. Mart "wowfabgroovy" wrote in message ... "Paul" went:

Why swap BBC1/BBC2 schedules for tennis as then Freeview viewers then miss local programmes by DeeInLondon
Instead of stupid channels on Freeview like Bidup TV - why not have a single dedicated Sports channel and stop messing about with regular programming, I'm fed up with normal programming being messed up by the latest sporting event that lastes for hours on end!! There are only a limited number on channels on Freeview - why is the majority of them crap!! Why is BidUp TV considered worthy of a...

I need to find a better way to record automatically. Here's the story so far: SITUATION 1 I am using a Thomson DTI 1000 digital box. In the manual, it says that you only have to set the timer on the STB if you have a Thomson video recorder, and it will start recording automatically. PROBLEM 1

Poor BBC channels and ITV on sky box by Kawps
Hi, I've got a sky box with no subscription but all this week BBC channels and ITV have been really messed up with blocks, picture freezing and sound popping. I called Sky and they said the BBC have switched frequencies/transponder? And that the box is working fine because C5/C4 and the Sky info channel is fine. Anyone knows how to fix this problem.

How to Make a DVD from a Nebula DigiTV source? by David van Kemenade
"martin dibb" wrote in message ... I have another question though. I presume one selects "MPEG-2 Program (VBR)" from within TMPGenc, selecting "mpeg tools" and a "Simple multiplex"? (As DVD is MPEG-2.) That's right. I have found UleadDVDMF still converts and remultiplexes the file, so obviously TMPGenc is not producing a...
