Programme cut short by Davey

Why do people buy 2nd hand Sky boxes? by Lucky13[_2_]
I've had a Sky+ HD box passed on to me and I was wondering why people buy them on eBay? If you want the + bit you need to subscribe. If you want the HD bit you need to subscribe. If you want Freesat then you need a Freesat box. If you want free sat from Sky then you need to enjoy scrolling...

Buzzing on a digital box. by Brian Gaff
No not buzzing as in audio hum like earth loop or open circuit earth, but buzzing as in old fashioned vision buzz as we used to get on some cheap 625 sets back in the day. How can this occur in this digital age? Brian -- ----- -- This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa...

I visited a former colleague today who has bought a cottage where there is line of sight to Rosneath transmitter. She was charged 350 to install a TV aerial. Was she overcharged?

Dumb question: aerial connections to TV by Another John
Sorry for interrupting this august body with a question so simple but ... Our TV (Sony Bravia) gets its aerial feed via the PVR (Humax Fox T2). Owing to its continuing Green Screen problems, the Humax is frequently powered off (via the switch on the back of the box). The TV picture then...

out of focus by Bill Wright[_3_]
Just watched Walking Britain's Lost Railways, the one about the Sheffield to Manchester line. Many times during the programme the picture was out of focus. I don't mean as an arty effect; this was accidental. Sometimes focus was regained but often quite long shots were blurred from start to...

Reception problems during heavy rain? by Bill Wright[_3_]
My aerial has a clear sight of Emley Moor and my distribution system normally delivers a perfect signal to all the TV sets and recorders. However, during the freakishly heavy rain in the early hours of today our reception suffered a long series of brief break-ups. This observation is based on...

(I'd have tacked this onto my previous thread but it has expired here.) I have been looking for a T2 ("HD") STB that: 1. does AD (audio description) 2. records to USB stick 3. has a SCART output with little success: the AD being the main problem - not so much that boxes don't have it, as that...

BBC solves World Cup streaming delay by Phi
BBC Research & Development said it has now managed to "eliminate" the delay. However, its software is not ready to be rolled out to the public yet. Live TV watched online is often behind by several seconds because it takes longer to reliably send video over the internet than to broadcast...

Strange behaviour of my Humax DTT box by Bill Wright[_3_]
It came on claiming that there were no programmes on the hard drive. After rebooting it appeared to work normally. It obeyed instructions and played the first of the three episodes of a programme it had recorded. However when that recording came to an end the machine switched (apparently...

More fun with subtitles by Davey
During the 1 pm news bulletin today, the BBC's subtitles included: "..during these negotiations, the Queen is a Reptile". They might not like her, but that is somewhat extreme. -- Davey.
