Panasonic - BBC iPlayer turns off power by Geoff Pearson
I bought a Panasonic TX40EX700B from John Lewis a couple of months ago - quite pleased with it. It is connected to the router by Ethernet and the Netflix speed tester reports a download speed of over 60Mbs - we have a good connection and that is the speed reported by my PC too. Netflix works...

question about Multiswitches by Stephen[_10_]
If one splits a satellite signal passively to 16 outputs, I make that a reduction of 12dB from the input signal level to one of the output levels assuming the splitting is 100% efficient. Its probably nearer to 16dB once the inductive and resistive network losses are included. Now imagine a 16...

Sync problem on BBC1 by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I was just watching the 7.30 Chelsea Flower Show programme on BBC1 HD, and found it unwatchable because sound and vision were so out of sync. It wasn't anywhere near as bad on SD, but was still there. This was on both a Panny HD TV and also a much older HD-ready Panny using a Manhattan HD...

Australian VIERA Plasma TV by Pinnerite
My son-in-law has just unpacked his family's possessions and discovered that their TV will not get a signal. Worse he cannot find a region reset setting other than for New Zealand. Oz and (I think) Singapore. The TV's age is about four years. The model No. is: VIERa TH-P60ST60A. Can this be...

Why wasn't I told? by Pinnerite
It was that E-Type jag that Meghan and Harry drove off in, Bond-fiulm style. First was the mention that it was electric car(?) Second, Harry sat on the left. Who was driving?

Tropo by Brian Gaff
Two days ago people on the south coast were greeted by a load of French digital channels, but when the tropo died they lost the uk ones, or some of them. Some tvs it seems then present three retune options for regions. If this is a common thing, then there are going to be a lot of confused...

Any comments or reviews on a Satlin ws6980 spectrum analyser? by Stephen[_10_]
I've been on the lookout for a spectrum analyser for DVB-S/S2 and DVB-T/t2 plus FM and DAB for a long time. The prices have put me off so I ended up with a lab spec CRT based Anritsu.... which is quite frankly too heavy and large to go hoicking up and down ladders However, I saw this Satlink...

COM7 and COM8 in Darkest West Sussex? by Chris Holmes
Hi All, We recently (predictably) lost BBC4 HD on what I think is a Group A 18 element Yagi pointing at CP (from Horsham (RH13 0SG)). I asked a local Aerial contractor whether he would quote for a Log, but he said they are often low gain and weren't "Digital approved". I thought for my next...

Sandy Heath question by Eddie King[_2_]
Good morning, a relative has just moved to the Sandy Heath area. I am trying to sort out her TV reception problems. As the previous occupant had Sky and this is definitely not her preferred option I am looking at installing or upgrading a terrestrial aerial. Now to my question. According to my...

Offered a channel that's not on the EPG by PeterC
Looking at recording a programme but had two others at the same time. Foxsat HDR suggested an alteranative time for one of them. Sofar, so good. Now, the offered alternative was on Quest (Giro d'Italia) - I have Quest+1 but not Quest on the EPG, so I wasn't certain that it would work. I've never...

MHEG-5 and Hbb by [email protected]
Some questions that I can't seem to find the answer to in google.. Standard def digital TV uses MHEG-5, do HD broadcasts or do they use the european Hbb system? Why didn't we adopt the HBB system anyway given it seems that most of europe are using it?

Lashing a satellite dish to a chimney (max size?) (x-post from uk.d-i-y) by Seri Al-Najjar
I'm looking to upgrade my dish from a regular Sky Minidish to a 90cm Toroidal one with multiple LNB's to indulge my latest tinkering hobby. I don't really want a hulking great dish on the front of the house as I think the Sky one at the moment looks bad enough, so I'm going to take this...

mush zones and nerdiness by Bill Wright[_3_]
I drive around listening to a radio station that is playing abysmal 'music' and ludicrous adverts, with ludicrously abysmal reception, just so I can see where it fades in and out. I make predictions based on rough knowledge of topography and then see if they come true. Am I a nerd? If so, are...

Panasonic TV standby power by Malcolm H
My Panasonic TV TX-P46G10B consumes approx 30W on standby but the manual states it should be 0.4W (without monitor out recording). What is 'monitor out recording' and how can it be disabled? There is no reference to this in the manual. Same comments apply to my other TV Panasonic TX-L32D26BA. I...
