when the BBC was good by JNugent[_6_]

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...

UK television in Denmark by Scott[_4_]
Am I right in thinking all BBC domestic radio stations are available in Denmark using iPlayer Radio / Sounds? Will this include local radio? Am I right in thinking that domestic televison will not be available with a Danish IP address, only BBC World Service TV? If I connect using my mobile...

Video Sender Alternative by Phil
Hi all, Have had years of good service from some 5.8 GHz video senders to get my Sky picture upstairs/control my Sky Box from upstairs. As time has gone on more and more people are getting routers on the same band and it’s starting to cause problems. Just wondering if someone can advise a good...

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,...

EPG 99 by Bill Wright[_3_]
To save me buggering about does anybody know what mux Yesterday+1 is on, and what else is on that mux? I'm wondering if I can shut that mux out of my domestic system because Yesterday +1 appears to have landed on 99 and I like to have my CCTV matrix picture on that number. Mark? Bill

Sony Radio Repair by Norman Wells[_7_]
I have a tiny 23 year-old Sony radio (ICF-SW1) that has developed what appears to be a standard fault of distorted sound through the speaker but not via headphones. All the websites I've been to seem to think it's a capacitor problem and that they all need replacing. It's a quality bit of kit...

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'...

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...
