Failed Public Eye link again by Jeff Layman[_2_]
After posting about this about 3 weeks ago, who forgot that a new series started yesterday and didn't start a new series link? I missed the first episode of the final series. So it looks like TPTV don't read emails sent to them, or don't appear to pay any attention if they do. :-( --

Weird subtitle problem on Drama by The Other John[_3_]
We were watching Brokenwood Mysteries on Drama last night. It's a New Zealand detective series a bit like Midsummer Murders. The NZ accents are a bit thick and I'm a bit deaf so I had the subtitles on. For the first few parts they were a sentence late so during an ad break I changed channels...

Must be OT - Ch 5 double recording by PeterC
Sorry about posting TV stuff. Every time I set Ch. 5 to record a film it also sets the repeat or first showing of it. It's the only channel to do so. Damned nuisance, as it sometimes clashes with another scheduled programme. Sometimes I have to remove the film and then remember to re-set it later,...

The olden days by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have been telling someone about the 1970s was I was a contract aerial rigger. It's real 'we lived in a cardboard box' stuff! How did I average 15 calls per day? Don’t forget this was ye olden days when things were different. I was working mostly for rental firms where everything was cut...

Hi Does anybody know if they still make smallish flatscreen TV's with a clock display permanently on the front. If so, where can they be purchased from. I am looking for a 20-32inch maximum screen size. When I got rid of the TV/Video combo (very old 12" Amstrad TVR-2) I found I actually miss not...

Further to aerial installation rip-offs by Bill Wright[_3_]
A few points. I think the idea of rigging a fault and then inviting the suspected crook to diagnose it is fundamentally flawed, because an artificially-induced fault can rarely present a normal scenario to the suspected crook. For instance, in a previous series they replaced the fuse in the...

Aerial installation rip offs by Bill Wright[_3_]
Channel Five had an excellent programme tonight, 'House Trap', fronted by Esther Rantzen. It exposed the truly astonishing over-charging by a national TV aerial firm. Most victims were vulnerable people. As a retired aerial installer I was shocked and angered. Please watch it and warn your...

Freeview volume levels again by Brian Gaff
I really do think we need a volume police on Freeview. Surely they can get their levels a bit less random than at the moment. all the radio stations are massively loud but some tv channels are seemingly quiit but still sound compressed so its not the dynamic range its the actual mean level that...

BBC not sending full information? by Davey
I have The Graham Norton Show set up for series record on my Humax, and it has always worked. But tonight, I saw that the recording indicator had not changed colour, and so I started it recording manually. I checked, and the EPG was showing that it was supposed to be recording the series version,...
