Bitrates on satellit TV channels.... by [email protected]
While randomly browsing through TV channels on my technisat box last night, I saw a film with Roger Moore in it.... This was on a channel called RBB which is Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg. Thinking it was James Bond, I called up the EPG and it turned out it was Die Zwei which is German for The Two...

Sky Box Kaput by Jeff Gaines
Last night's Sky+ HD upgrade seems to have toasted my Sky Box, it can't find my recordings. If it's a permanent issue I feel inclined to give up Sky and get a Freesat box if they are still available. Any suggestions for a good one please? I do like the Sky EPG but 40 a month is 40 a...

AT700 ? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]

Toppy 5800 free of charge by Mark Carver
I am having a major clear out. I can't bring myself to take my Toppy 5800 PVR to the tip. Impossible to sell, it's only DVB-T1, SD, and has only analogue audio and video interfaces. Been in my loft since 2013, but I had it running yesterday, seems fine still. Anyway, if anyone is likely to...
