What aerial for digital terrestrial tv? by Mark Carver
Dave wrote: Hi I recently bought a digital box for the tv, but seem to have bad signals, and lots of channels missing when compared to what http://www.dtg.org.uk/ suggests we should get. Several people have suggested it may be the aerial. As we have just moved I have no idea how old...

DTT audio distortion revisited. SAMPLES provided by Agamemnon
Today, after thinking about the Proms debacle on Saturday, I decided to take another look at the samples I made last week concerning the audio distortion occurring on DVB audio. The following are the artefacts observed from a 44.1 kHz sample of the BBC 6 O'clock news (which I did not analyse...

Another question about Grundig GDT1500 box by Tom Cumming
Many thanks for the answers to my previous question. Next (and hopefully last) question: When I exit the data/text service for any BBC channel (by pressing red) there is a pause of about one second where the picture and sound both cut out, which is a bit annoying. This does not happen on non-BBC...

64 QAM UNACCEPTABLE by Agamemnon
Last night all of the channels on the ITV multiplex from Sandy Heath completely broke up due to co-channel interference. On analogue Channel 5 was completely obliterated because of its week signal and Channel 4 which was a strong signal was half obliterated and unwatchable, although the...

Nebula software - 3.02 build 9 by Steve
I have read nothing about this, perhaps being new to this people don't autoupdate, but is anyone else finding this the worst build so far? Memory leaks, GPFs (repeatable when viewing 'programmes at a glance') and just general slowness. How can I download an earlier build, 3.01 missed recordings...

Recent Poor FTV reception by RJH
Hi - I've got one of the Grundig gdt1500 ftv boxes, and over the last couple of months ITV, ch4 and especially those pop channels have poor picture reception, with frequent pauses and scrambled picture.. It *could* be the aerial (a cheapo Wickes TV type in the loft), but reception on the...

What's happening with the last unallocated channel on Freeview? by hg
Any news on who's going to broadcast on the channel? Someone wrote a while back that Eurosport will never be on Freeview but that's what I'm hoping for. If not I'm thinkin of getting a cheap analogue sat system just to pick up Eurosport - and then feed it to my PC's TV card. Or would a digital sat...

Aerial Installation by Rob Horton
Hi, I had the great idea of installing my own TV aerial. Purchased a huge Televés wideband with 3 directors, a long 2" diameter aluminum pole, some sturdy galvanised wall brackets and 50M of CT100 cable. Problem is, about half way up the ladder, my instinct to be on the ground overcomes my DIY...

Best aerial for DTTV at reasonable cost? by Matt
I'm looking to install a new aerial at the back of my property in an attempt to escape some of the interference caused by the vehicles, particularly the local yobs on their earsplitting hairdryers, passing by on the road outside. Currently on the roof I have Wickes high gain aerial, a rebadged...

DV cameras - bitrates etc. by Martin Angove
Just a quickie. Can anyone tell me what the standard bitrate is of the picture information recorded onto a miniDV tape by a domestic camcorder? Is it fixed, is it variable? What sort of error correction information is recorded? Presumably the quality of the encoder varies between cameras...

DAB, DVB and DSat audio bit rates by Eddie
"Agamemnon" wrote You need a bit rate of 256 Kbps using mp2 to obtain the same quality and frequency response equivalency as 128 Kbps using mp3. First off, that's ********. With today's MP2 encoders, 192kbps MP2 sounds as good to my ears as 128kbps MP3. ...

Aerials - Horizontal vs Vertical by Robert Hallam
Well the plot thickens - back in January it was Vertical now this week same aerial has become Horizontal. The aerial fairies must have been at work and sorted this guy out. Only 8 months of poor reception - doh! Or wouldn't it have made much difference ? What do you think ? Rob H "Robert Hallam"...
