Inadvisable coax route by Bill Wright[_2_]
Well, I wouldn't do it anyway. But there again I'm a pessimist. That's what's held me back, according to a man who wanted me to bet on his three-legged dog. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/P5091474.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/P5091475.JPG Also, note how the...

iPlayer suddenly stopped on my Panasonic TV by Clive Page[_3_]
Yesterday we watching a BBC1 programme using the iPlayer built in to our Panasonic TV (TX-L42D25BA) and it worked fine for maybe 15 mins then suddenly stopped with a "Network Error" message. After failing to reconnect, we resorted to connecting a laptop to watch the rest of the...

Traix HTX 2V HDMI over CAT5 units. by Bill
Hi, a bit of a strange one. A friend of mine has a set of the above units and it works great with a straight through patch lead between the 2 units, they sync together within seconds of powering on. But if he connects them with CAT5 attached to 2 wall plates, correctly wired, nothing...

Is there any such thing as a passive wifi repeater? by [email protected]
There is a zone of disillusionment in my garden which I would like to sort. The WiFi access point is about 2.5 metres off the ground, and raising it to the top of the house is a no-go (I'm assuming that having the WiFi aerials higher up would sort this problem) so the next thing I thought of was a...

AD4 Radio Battery by Max Demian
Seen in the recycling container at my local supermarket. It's a 1.5V LT battery for a large valve portable. Big chunky thing larger than a PP9. I don't suppose Ever Ready have made them since the early 70s, if that. -- Max Demian

Risking it all on a Poundland Purchase. by P Jameson
Poundland are doing a little cable with USB at one end and five connections the other end to connect to a variety of different Smart Phones. So you can charge your phone from your laptop. Would the voltage likely be *steady* enough not to damage the phone with 'spikes' ? They also do an...

BBC I Player now ballsed up? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
So they have changed the web site without even a test to see if its better? Will this upset smart tvs etc, do you think? People are moaning about sideways scrolling lists etc, I myself am just moaning that my software designed to put a nice front end on the web site for the blind, no longer can...

Just curious by Pinnerite[_2_]
This morning I was flitting between the news channels trying to get the gist ending at Al Jazeera HD. The picture became very broken up, stalling etc so I switched to SD. If both are transmitted from the same (Crystal Palace) mast, what is the likely cause of the problem? --...

Eurovision Song Contest by Woody[_4_]
Thought it was about time we had another long running discussion, especially as Bill seems to be away. Did anyone see that debacle that was the ESC last night. What a load of ....... The (Oriental?) drummer behind the UK entry was waving his arms all over the place and seemed to be working...

Can you save recordings after buying a new PVR. by Derek F[_4_]
Our Humax PVR 9200T is reaching the end of the road. Presumably there is no way to transfer recordings one wants to keep. It would not be a problem with our Hitachi as it has built in CD and VCR. Derek

Current situation re. picture quality by Steve Thackery[_2_]
Colleagues, I'm thinking of building a media PC to replace my various Freeview and Freesat boxes. What is the current situation with respect to picture quality - especially on the HD channels - between satellite and terrestrial? I assume satellite has the potential for more bandwidth, but of...

Sky at Night by Brian_Gaff
So what do you think then? I listened to it, and can understand why they got that woman in. she is certainly enthusiastic. However I do find the background music a bit on the pointless side. I mean, what does it add other than maybe to mask background noises they did not want to put out or...

OTish, for those thrifty types who like xp. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
With the demise of Microsoft support for Windows XP, they seem to be indulging in scare tactics in order to sell new systems. Time will no doubt tell if the security risks are really as great as they say. One of the tactics they have indulged in is to create a new version of Microsoft Security...

Ch5 sold again by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Well I see that the previous owners of this set of channels, coincidentally five of them at the last count, has flogged what it bought for just over 100 million quid, to Viacom for over 400 million quid. Good return for four years. Won't get that at Britannia! Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian...
