Saving recordings from an old PVR continued. by Derek F[_4_]
Looking at various new machines, none have every facility one wants so some comprises always have to be made. At the moment we have the following feeding into the Panasonic TX-P37X10B TV and I'd like to get rid of several remotes and a lot of cables:-) Humax PVR 9200 Samsung DVD-V6800...

duonews by Bill Wright[_2_]
Sad subject, but at 1603 Sky News had their man standing at the school gates talking to the camera. At extreme left was the yellow cardie sleeve of the BBC reporter, who could be heard clearly. On BBC News there she was, with the Sky Man's voice in the background. Pitch war? Who stands where...

Sky Dolby Digital sound has become very flat, compressed, no longer dynamic. by David[_14_]

Jamaica Inn by Victor Delta[_2_]
Can't believe no one's started a thread here about the 'mumbling' sound issues on this programme. Apparently there were 2200 complaints www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27142035 Artistic or technical issue (or both)? And did things get better in the later episodes after 'adjustments' had...

Question on the construction of a dipole aerial. by [email protected]
Does it matter how wide or narrow the gap between the two quarter-wave wires is? Would it be better to make it as narrow as possible, or does it not matter if it's the width of the chocolate block used? Thanks in advance.

Humax DTR-T1010 playing up again by Jeff Layman[_2_]
A few weeks back I posted about problems I was having with this box. They seemed to resolve after powering off overnight. This morning I noticed the box was on, but it should have been off. I remember turning it off last night. It did not respond to the remote, and the only thing showing on...

Why can I not get BBC4 on HD channel 106 in Guildford? Radio Times seems to indicate that I should.

Multi-channel Sky distribution? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
In an apartment where Sky sports were being (badly) distributed as analogue channels in parallel with regular Freeview this weekend - so how do they get the Sky feeds? Does Sky supply special "multi-channel output" boxes that can then be fed into the distribution system? And how come they're...

Virgin cable - anythig to stop a bit of DIY? by David.WE.Roberts
We want to do two things: (1) Take the cable box of the lounge wall so the room can be replastered. (2) Relocate the cable box from a corner to the middle of the wall. Virgin Media will do this for £99. Given that it is just a co-ax connection (I assume) is there any reason why I can't

Sky and "the empty pint" by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Is the "empty pint", typically bottom right of the screen on Sky Sports some sort of "this is a legitimate public area subscription" marker? Paul DS.

PS3 over HDMI - "analogue snow" picture? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Anyone got a small child and come across this problem? Recently our PS3 started showing what I can only describe as a "snowy analogue" picture, sometimes even black and white, on start-up; given it's connected over HDMI this is somewhat strange. Unplugging the HDMI cable, or stopping and...

Replacement springs and e-clips? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
BlackReel-Audio-HFI store on eBay. They seem to have 'belts for all occasions' and some pinch rollers. My belts haven't arrived yet so can't vouch for quality. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/BlackReel-Audio-HIFI?_trksid=p2047675.l2563 Paul DS. Thanks for that, Paul! +++++++++++++

Neighbours and Audio description? by Brian Gaff
Not the sort of thing I watch, but several blind friends of mine do watch this soap, and in the last few weeks the incidence of ch 5 and its spin offs having 'forgotten' to put the AD on has incresed so it happens once or twice each week. No apologies have come from any emails and phone calls...

Panasonic blu-ray firmware update. by Derek F[_4_]
When I turned on my DMP-BDT110 Blu-Ray player this week it told me there was a firmware update available. I hoped that it would include ItvPlayer, catch up 4Od and Demand5 but was disappointed. Does anyone know what might be added later? It has pages of blank squares and all that seems to be new...

PVR reliability by Jeff Layman[_2_]
About 15 months ago my trusty Humax 9200T, then 5 or 6 years old, started playing up. I decided a new PVR was required. After looking around, I got an Echostar Ultra Slim Box HDT-610R. The hard disk failed after 6 months. Fortunately I'd bought it from John Lewis, who refunded the full...

Do speakers go off with age? by Norman Wells[_7_]
I was just curious to know if loudspeakers go off with age. I have a pair of Bowers and Wilkins DM1's which were quite well regarded when I bought them, but that must now be over 40 years ago. Do speakers have a limited life? Have they come on much over the years that would make replacing...
