The wonders of AM by Bill Wright[_3_]
I came by a fairly ancient Panasonic ghetto blaster the other day. Great big thing it is. Anyway in an idle moment I tried it on AM radio. The interference was horrendous. I turned all the lights off and that reduced it but it was still bad. One surprise was the number of Spanish stations. I...

Rii mini keyboard by pinnerite
My second Rii mini keyboard has sprung a fault. The letters L & O are dead. They keyboard three years old. The first one's on-off switch will not switch off. I paid over £25 for the first one and over £12 for the second. Ritek reckon that 3 years is the working life. I think that is too...

OT - Luther - and Supergirl by PeterC
Supergirl season 2 apparently has 22 episodes; the last one broadcast (can't remember the channel) was ep. 20. Are there any more due, does anyone know. A BBC page, dated 27/11/18 said that the Christmas schedule included Luther, but I've seen no sign of it and searching the EPG shows nothing. --...

So what great gems will we have on tv this Christmas? by Brian Gaff
I'm probably not going to be impressed, so i was just wondering if, for once we might get a documentary that did more than dumb down an interesting subject of science, for example, but from recent experience it is looking like that will never happen. Brian -- ----- -- This newsgroup...

daftest one yet by Bill Wright[_3_]
Neighbour and customer: "Bill, either my ears have gone or the telly's broke." Bill: "I'll pop round. Get t'kettle on." (shortly afterwards) I wordlessly turned up the volume, then I drank the tea. Bill

Browser on Samsung Smart TV by pinnerite
Several of the early facilities are now inaccessible to my 'smart' TV. I updated the software a few days ago but still cannot stream from ITV or 4, or I think from My5. I can get iplayer and Netflix but the loss of he others is irritating. Has anyone found a way round this? -- Ubuntu 18.04,...

Edge of Tomorrow - non-existent programme recording clash by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I just tried to set up recording of the film "Edge of Tomorrow" on Ch5 at 2100 tonight. My Panasonic PVR reports an overlapping programme clash, and asked me to resolve it. But I have only two programmes set to record tonight, and they end before 2100. When I asked it to show the problem...

emergency call button device for blind person by Bill Wright[_3_]
My friend has had a stroke and it has left her almost completely blind. Cognitively she seems unaffected. We need some sort of gadget that she can have on a lanyard to call for someone if she has an emergency. Presumably this will use the cellphone network. It won't be any good if it will only...

TOT Nativity play by Bill Wright[_3_]
INFANT SCHOOL CHRISTMAS MEMORY It was the Nativity play. Parents and grandparents filled the hall. I was one of the Three Kings. I had to wear a hood that was almost all-enveloping. We Three Kings had to kneel down in worship before the Baby Jesus. I went into a reverie. The story moved on, but...

Esther Rantzen and dodgy aerial traders. by Marland
Any one see the watchdog like programme she presented on channel 5 this evening about a company that seems to be one of those that does unnecessary work and runs up very large bills for diagnosing TV reception problems as even the simplest fault such as loose plug ends up needing a new...

DTT Radio (Radio 4) by Chris Holmes
Hi All, We are having trouble getting to Mornington Crescent via our Youview box. I had a quick google which seemed to suggest that R4 was the same mux as BBC1 and BBC2. Is this the case? In which case perhaps we need to do a retune (maybe with the plug pulled out for some of the time)?

Programmes not recorded by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Looks like the curse of "Edge of Tomorrow" has struck again (see my post of 14/12)! Last night we ere watching it on the Panasonic PVR. Everything seemed fine - no problem with playback. But in the background while we were watching the film things were not fine. The PVR didn't record the last...

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,...
