Smart TV Keyboard by Graham.[_12_]
Generally speaking, is it safe to assume that if a TV has a USB socket, you can plug in a PC keyboard and use it instead of struggling with the supplied IR handset? -- Graham. %Profound_observation%

Freeview BBC News Channel 231 (standard definition) not available? by Maurice[_3_]
Yesterday, as we were recording 2 Freesat channels on our Humax, I switched over to our TV's Freeview receiver (which does not do HD). But when I selected '231', it said 'not available'. So did a complete auto-retune. Still can't make 231 show anything. Googling 'BBC News freeview'...

BBC Iplayer and AD yet again missing by Brian Gaff
Last night I thought I'd watch Sundays Dr Who. It was up but no AD choice on the page. I rang the BBC and had a moan. the guy confirmed the link was missing and raised a complaint. I have not looked since. Did anyone view the transmission was the AD there? When is the late night repeat? ...

Must sign in to iPLayer by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I see that it is now a requirement to sign in to use iPlayer. Not sure how this will work with the iPlayer app on my Panasonic smart TV as it asks for a code to be entered, albeit apparently only once. If it is only possible to enter a code through the Firefox app on the TV, does that mean...

BBC Cookie Clutter by Java Jive[_3_]
https://www.bbc.co.uk/usingthebbc/strictly-necessary-cookies/ There follows a list of cookies that the BBC deem 'strictly necessary' to use the BBC website and related services. Some of them clearly are not strictly necessary and therefore shouldn't be in a section entitled 'strictly...

totally off topic by Marland
I'm reminded of the great "chandeliers episode" in "Only Fools and Horses". Your real name isn't Trotter by any chance? There was also the time when Bail Fawlty called in a builder called Murphy... some years ago, I was stage managing a concert at RMA Sandhurst; the extra ...

Serial link failure on TPTV by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I've been recording "Public Eye" under a serial link on Talking Pictures TV. However, the serial link has failed permanently (ie it doesn't miss just one programme as all scheduled recordings are not made) on two occasions after recording for 2 or 3 weeks, resulting in lost episodes. My...

Green screen again (Humax PVR) by Another John
Long story short: I asked in June about the problems of our Humax HDR-Fox T2, 5 years old, green-screening. I received several useful suggestions, and indeed I found much discussion elsewhere, via Google. In short: nothing seems to fix it, nor does there seem to be any definite ...

Creating a form in Word by Brian Gaff
I think you would need to make protected fields. This can also be done for pdf files, but the problem of converting an existing one, I do not know, perhaps open a new document set up protected fields as you cut and past into the new document? These forms annoy the heck out of blind people by...

VD show running time halved by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
The dire Victoria Derbyshi*e show has been reduced from to hours to one, starting at 10:00 instead of 09:00. Routinely filled with dead beats whining about how they didn't realise heroin was addictive, it's cold in the winter, women can't conceive naturally in their fifties or that if you commit...

a very small foreign body by Bill Wright[_3_]
I'm used to this thing where the bottom of the charge socket on the iPhone gets compacted fluff in it and you have to scrape it out with a non-conductive sliver of something, like a bit of hardwood. But the technique failed on Saturday. No way would the phone charge. I tried three chargers. On...

rip off by Brian Gaff
Not much really. It might have been nice to photograph the job as left. 97 sounds a lot, I'd have said 25 more apt. Sounds definitely like somebody is exploiting lack of knowledge. I'd take them to court myself, however I also think that the people who run the flats should perhaps make sure...

Freesat PVRs - can I check my understanding of the technology by NY
I know about DVB-T terrestrial and the fact that channels are grouped into multiplexes. A single receiver (in a PVR or as a USB DVB-T decoder attached to a PC with suitable software) can simultaneously record several channels providing they are all in the same multiplex; to record simultaneously...

Hmm gone very very quiet here... by Brian Gaff
I was pondering the other day, in the absence of sight, how the definition compares nowadays with a good 625 or 405 line tv programme from the past? I'm forever hearing that the problems today are worse than a good betamax tape years ago, in that they are often fuzzy, and blocky with not very...
