Unseemly truncation of Gentleman Jack by Bill Wright[_3_]
What's going on? It started late and finished late. Even with five minutes' padding I lost the climax (in several senses as it happens) so I had to fart about with iPlayer to avoid disappointment. Why do they do this sort of thing? Why were they running late? Why doesn't the EPG get altered?...

Is SKY Q available on broadband yet. by Bill Ward[_2_]
From 2019 Sky will also be launching a version of Sky Q that works over broadband internet only. A Sky Q app will be launched that will be available on smart TVs, third-party set-top-boxes - likely Roku, considering Sky has a part-share in the company - and portable devices. Sky claims it will...

1080i vs 1080p by Scott[_4_]
Why is the football being shown in 1080i? I thought 1080p was more suited to movement and 1080i to scenery. No witty comments about women's football please !!!

They've done it again - not updated the EPG by Dickie mint[_2_]
They really are running the asylum! Following the beeb taking over EPG compilation and the resultant cockup, programme timing changes tonight on BBC2 haven't been changed in the EPG. Of course it could be my Humax? Gardeners' World was at 8.30 pm Looming Tower was at 9.30pm. Tonight

Power Cut by pinnerite
Yesterday we awoke to three problems. My wife had no email access. This was pinned down to a power cut (Pinner area) at sometime in the night. That meant the all-singing and dancing Netgear R7000 Nighthawk Dual-Band AC 1900 Wi-Fi router had been knocked out. As usual although the power had...

Sky Q by Jeff Gaines
Had the Sky Q box (and new LNB) fitted today. Nothing remarkable except the engineer had to drill the wall for a fitting to hold his ladder in place before he could go up it. Is this the new norm? -- Jeff Gaines Wiltshire UK All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.

Al-Jazeera HD by pinnerite
My aerial faces Crystal Palace. Recently, we were advised to retune to channel 235 on 31 May. Since then Al-Jazeera is certainly there but in SD. The original HD channel on 108 is dead as a dodo. Does anybody know if AJ HD will pop up somewhere else? --

Look !, no hands (aeriel actually) by Andrew[_6_]
The recent rain has made TV reception a bit iffy in my house. I am 10 miles from Midhurst and the 15 element group C/D aerial blew down in 2000 so I lashed it up in the loft with some string as a temporary measure .... 19 years and many transmitter retunes later and Quest is impossible (LCN 29 I...

I was given a Version 1 Amazon Fire USB stick for free but no remote, the giver can't find it down the back of the sofa?? Is it really worth buying one of the Hong Kong 7.50 remote copies on ebay? Thanks in advance.

Aerial operation by [email protected]
I am aware of the theory of aerial dimensions - wavelength, speed of light, and such, but what I am having real trouble visualising is the actual physical function of these things. Can anyone help? Tuned radio waves are photons of a particular frequency, and they are produced by an alternating...

One cable from satellite dish, three F-connector cables to living room by NY[_2_]
My new house has three cables with F connectors and one with a Belling Lee connector. The F-connector ones all seem to be satellite, though I've only got one receiver at the moment so I can't test what happens if I try to tune to two different channels on two different cables (assuming channels...

"Rabbit" video extender - 80s technology by jamie powell
Visiting a uni friend at her parents' house today, I was intrigued to find an 'old-skool' video extender device installed in her bedroom. Branded 'Rabbit' and dated 1985, the system consists of two silver boxes - a mains-powered one in the lounge with phono composite video and stereo audio...
