Length of co-ax cable run by Bob Lucas
I have a friend, who lives in a listed cottage in Hampshire. The cottage is a listed building and the Eastern, Southern and Western elevations of the premises are visible from the road. Consequently, the planning officer has stated categorically that the local authority will not allow him to fit a satellite dish on any of the walls. However, the planning officer has indicated that the council...

possible sound fallouts by Paul Heslop
since doing the cleanup of the hard drive, it seems to be working okay picture-wise but I've noted possible sound fallouts. This was something it didn't do before... another sign of hard drive failure? -- Paul (We won't die of devotion) ------------------------------------------------------- Stop and Look http://www.geocities.com/dreamst8me/

Neighbours shot in Super 8mm? by Ian Bethell
What's the crack with Channel Five's version of neighbours... looks like it's been "Adobe After Effects"ed... i'm sure it was more realistic on BBC... surely they didn't change the cameras from DV to super 8 over the weekend... It's like a drop in resolution.

sky+ not working :O( by Paul Heslop
it has been a bit hit and miss on whether recordings will play and tonight I was watching a recording which broke up and kept freezing. I unplugged the box and now it does nowt. I can hear some noise but i think that's the fan, and i can do a software update but nothing happens at the end of it. Last resorts I have unplugged it again but leaving it stood for a while. If this fails what's the...

Video+ question by P & H Macguire
I'm trying to get a Panasonic E85 to record from a Sky Digibox (Sony S760) using Videoplus. The instructions say, "Press the numbered buttons to enter a Videoplus number for a satellite station (e.g. Sky One) but I can only find numbers for Analogue and Freeview stations in the listings. Where would these numbers be obtained? Regards Pat Macguire

Loss of signal - Anything to worry about? by JoeJoe
Yesterday, whilst watching a program that was still being recorded, I was informed of a loss of signal. Signal Test suggested that one of the 2 input was dead (it's a Sky+ installation). Well, not exactly dead, as the Signal Strength was OK, but the Signal Quality bar was on 0%. I swapped the the inputs at the back, and same result (just swapped). Booted the box, still nothing. I thought I...

Thomson Sky Digibox and FTV by AmyGG
I have a Thomson Sky Digibox. I recently cancelled my Sky subscription but would like to use the Free To View channels. According to the website http://skydigitalfaq.cjb.net/: "If you have a dark blue card with a yellow "house" design on it then the FTV channels should continue to work for some time." However, when I try switching the Digibox on, although the channel automatically changes to the...

Slightly OT - Freeview Interactive Services on Samsung LE37R8 TV by Bob Huntley
Hi, My old man has just bought a Samsung LE37R8 TV - a 37 inch LCD set which includes analogue and Freeview tuners. We've found one slight problem with the Freeview set-up - we can't access the Interactive services (i.e. the "Teletext" pages of DTV) which you normally enter by pressing the Red button on BBC1, BBC2, BBC News 24 etc. etc. I've tried the Text button as well as the Red one -...

Any Samsung tv engineers read this NG? by diy-newby[_2_]
I have a Samsung LE40M87BDX LCD. It suffers from the known and common scart interference issue on EXT2 and slightly on EXT1. Is there a fix for this yet? I connect my Sky+ box through EXT1 (RGB) and in dark solid scenes you can see very faint scrolling horizontal lines. EXT2 is un-watchable. TIA
