Dead air by Davey
A couple of mornings ago, the Radio 4 FM signal was dead. Maybe some others were as well. It was ok on Freeview, but we don't have a TV set in the kitchen, nor in our car. While watching BBC1 a little later, there was a local news bulletin, and we thought that would be a great opportunity for the...

extended warranties on electrical items by Bill Wright[_3_]
The new freezer came with an envelope containing the instructions and so forth. There was a large label on the bag: REGISTER NOW!" This would 'activate the free one year guarantee'. This seems to do no more than duplicate our statutory rights. In the bag was a glossy brochure offering 'Peace of...

New TV choices by David[_20_]
I'm semi seriously looking for a new TV at 42" or larger. I've looked at Richer Sounds (amongst others) who are usually a good benchmark. I've also walked around a John Lewis store. As far as I can tell at the moment there are a load of HD Ready TVs (I bought my first one over 10 years ago) at...

Completely off topic by Bill Wright[_3_]
5.30am this morning. I was asleep and dreaming when a very loud buzzing noise woke me up. There was something in my left ear. It's surprising how quickly you can wake up in such circumstances. I batted my ear and the buzzing thing came out and landed on my upper arm, where it stung me. It was a...

Log Periodic aerials have shot up in price by Andrew[_6_]
Just noticed that these seem to become a lot more expensive since March. Are people profiteering or is there another factor ?.

Who is responsible for levels? by Brian Gaff
I'm noting more and more on Freeview and to some extent on the internet feeds that radio and tv sound is all over the place. is there no way to fix this issue over all the broadcasters? One might have thought that given the digital nature of distribution some kind of peak monitoring would raise...

green subtitle background by Bill Wright[_3_]
I watched the programme about N Yorks police tonight and because some speech was indistinct subtitles had been added. These were white on a solid green background rectangle. It was very effective I thought. Bill

BBC iPlayer 4K by Michael Chare[_5_]
How do you ensure that you are watching a BBC iPlayer broadcast in 4K - where available? My 4K Samsung TV is not shown on the BBC's list of supported 4K TVs. To whom in the BBC can I complain? -- Michael Chare

Electronic device recovering after hot environment? by Bill Wright[_3_]
We have a VHF/UHF amplifier (quite an expensive one) that the builders covered with glass fibre in a loft. The air temp in the loft was 48C so God knows what it was inside the amp, but it was dead and it burnt the fingers of the person who discovered it. Thing is, it has now been on soak test...

Should we not be grateful for freeview? by Brian Gaff
I notice that both here and all over the world subscription tv prices are being hiked big time. The problem is that all the numerous providers charge from 14 dollars to 40 dollars a month now and of course if the things you want to watch are on several, you end up paying huge chunks of your...
