Freeview record by DJH
I'm cancelling sky and I've been looking for a Freeview recorder that's close to the Sky+ box but there seems to be so many. I want to be able to record a program whilst watching live TV too. Won't be fastening games or any extras up to it Someone just tell me which is a cheap and cheerful one that will do the job cos I'm sick of looking now. Thank you

Sky BBC reception by Andy Cap[_4_]
Hi BBC on both our boxes (multi-room) has been intermittently freezing for a few days now. Other channels seem OK. It seems worse in the early evening. I know there's some changes taking place on the 24th. Might this be connected or has something else gone awry? Powering up and down made no difference. Cheers

Apologies for off topic question but you have all been so good in the past...................... As you know I have now gotan LG TV. The kids are getting fed up with the fact that I can't get the wii to sync properly. Wii was fine with standard CRT and the kids/I am fairly well versed in the set up of both the wii and connections to TV etc etc. However

Old round dish, location of it any use to get freesat by Jim
Hi group, I want to move up to a freesat (not the free from sky version) PVR, I think I'll get the Humax FoxSat HDR. From my understanding I'll buy the box and will need a min of twin LNB to feed the Hummy that way i can record one channel while watching another, I know the old "round" dish will work with freesat IF I buy a new twin but more then likely quad universal LNB and move it to...

? Downgrading to SD from SKY+HD - what consequences? by David Chapman
With only a small (32") TV we have not seen much benefit in having Sky+ HD so we are now considering downgrading our SKY subscription back to SD. Since we've had SKY HD for well over the required 12 month contract I can't see any problem doing this to save the extra 10 (or so) per month subscription. Our main TV is already an HD one with Freesat and Freeview and we certainly do take...

Thomson Sky+ PSU by Doctor D
Our Thomson Sky+ box (3 years old) has been been responding more and more slowly to the remote and over the past week channels have been disappearing: Sky One 106, Sky News 501, Disc 241, Disc 242 and many others. After Googling, I decided with some scepticism to try replacing all the capacitors in the PSU. An hour with the soldering iron and normal service is resumed. Out of the 15...

Setting up home theatre by Chris R[_2_]
Slightly OT perhaps as it's not really a Sky problem, but can anyone recommend the best setup for my system? I'm tearing my hair out and it's spoiling my enjoyment of some very expensive kit. I have a new Samsung UE55D8000 TV and Samsung HT-D6500 home theatre amp & Blu-ray player, and 1TB Sky+HD. Initially I connected them as shown in the instructions: HDMI from Sky to HT, then HDMI from HT...

Remote recording on settop, but i didn't set it! by FishFood
Has anyone had their set top box records a bunch of programs which they didn't set up? I understand it is possible via your mobile or a tablet applet to record stuff when your not in, but has this ever occurred accidentally to someone else's set top box and how would you prevent this happening. Just had a punch of PBS stuff recorded, a channel i hadn't heard of before now. Interesting stuff,...

Copy+ and 2TB drive by John[_27_]
Just got a secondhand Amstrad DRX-890 from Ebay and a brand new 2TB Western Digital hard drive to put in it. Because I didn't have any old recordings or pre-Darwin thingy to swap over, I used the 10.3MB "vanilla xtv" pre-Darwin image file as the "source drive" and obviously my new 2TB drive as the destination. Copy+ seemed to 'do its thing' but only took about two minutes, maybe even less,...

Anytime for SkyHD+... by \Rev\ Norle Enturbulata THC, OD
In the past week or so I've noticed that Anytime (often confused with Anytime+, which only works with the Sky 'broadband' package) listings are also including SBO (Sky Box Office) entries. Sure, it's 'anytime' but for a fee. I think this trend may have begun with the placement of Sky3D shows on Anytime, which, when clicked upon, tell the viewer that they have to upgrade to include the...

Expensive versus cheap HDMI leads by Vincent
Most of us already know that expensive HDMI leads offer no visual or audible performance issues whatsoever over a cheap one, but some still argue it's worth paying for expensive HDMI leads and that you can "see the difference". Uhuh. I stumbled upon this article today which does some pretty definitive tests. They even went into the framebuffer to see the raw data that the TV was receiving and...

Access to a Satellite Dish: EU says every individual must have that opportunity by Stephen
An employee of the management company for my block of 150 flats cut the cables to, and removed, 10 satellite dishes used by leasholders last week, without warning. They had been carefully situated at ground level to be as unobtrusive as possible. I have read elsewhere the following: "Tell them to go away, you are having a dish": EU statement: "GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF FREE MOVEMENT OF GOODS AND...

SKY data signals by Y Dangle
I have a Sky setup, with a subscription card and a small dish, in Cyprus. Yesterday I changed the digibox, and of course lost most of the channels. I phoned Sky to marry the card to the new dish, but after waiting more than 12 hours it hasn't happened. I will wait a little longer and then have to reuse the original box. My question is, does anyone know which signal (channel) is used to send...
