Would you BELIEVE it? by Bill Wright
36 miles to a flats complex and what do I find? The lady had complained that satellite didn't work. Sure enough, No Signal Was Being Received. A quick look over the back of the settee at the wallplate established the existence of a splitter on the satellite flylead. I queried the presence of...

Annoyance with TV set by Bill Wright
In my office is an old (but good) Panasonic 14" telly. For some reason there are two remotes kicking about. Because of the CCTV and the various other things the aerial system has about 20 analogue channels on it, which have to be tuned manually because we like them in a certain order. The other...

Hi All, I Ihave a Liteon LVW 5025GHC 80GB HDD DVD recorder. I am very impressed and have been using it since the summer when I brought it. I am now trying to put some bits onto DVD. First off, I realise my mistake as I thought this wrote to dual layer disks. Ok - purely my fault - this model...

musing on Sunday afternoon by Bill Wright
Here's a puzzle that's just occurred to me. How can we assess the beamwidth of an aerial in view of the existence of fresnel paths? Come on gents, rouse yourself from your torpor and get to grips with this knotty problem. Bill

rolling picture by Jim
Hi I have a Philips DVD recorder model DVDR630VR. I am experiencing a very annoying intermittent problem. When I try to record a disk my TV picture starts rolling. This doesn't happen every time but it happens enough to have caused me to return to drinking which the wife doesn't like!! Lol.

Silvercrest/Lidl SL65-T question by [email protected]
I have a small range of STBs as I live in a very poor reception area and keep trying different boxes trying to find one that works as well as my old Labgear used to. This works OKish but it is oddly limited, eg, there doesn't seem to be an all-channels EPG. One problem I find particulary...

RF leads by Justin Thyme
N and Ps TVs are fed from 2 aerials and they both come in through our store room next to the PC. One goes through their loft to the lounge. The other drops down to the TV in their conservatory. Is it possible to use an RF lead to pass signals in both directions? Suppose we wanted to feed the...

The evil of off-topic posts by Bill Wright
The present flurry of activity in this group on the subject of the TV licence is quite deplorable. This is an administrative matter rather than a technical one and has no place in a technical newsgroup. I feel strongly that posts should be absolutely totally on topic at all times, otherwise we...

Sony VTX-D800 by Jerry and Ce

My communal aerial problem continued... by Marky P
Hi, You may remember a while ago that I was going on about my communal aerial not working. Well, got a chance to go up in the loft today & found the problem. Yes, there is an aerial, and a fine one it is too (Triax) but I also found the coax cable coming up from my flat, which was cut off! The...

TOT Times Xword trick by Bill Wright
Bottom right hand corner: the clue is 'Book of Old Testament', so you naturally put 'Exodus'. This fits in nicely with 'Plateaux' which is the obvious answer to 'high plains'. But if you put 'Exodus' nothing else fits, so after a lot of pratting about you put 'Esther', which means that you have...

Am I reading this right?? by Nel
I've just read the discussion re hard drives and people mention Sky locking half the capacity. Is this with all boxes and/or drives bigger than the original (first) drives of 40GB? I have a Pace box which currently has the original 40GB drive in. I tried a couple of times in the past to...

Bloody Annoying! (Sky 3 last night) by Ralph
Just sat down to watch the final episode of 24 which I taped off Freeview last night and there's sound, but no picture - just a black screen with the sky 3 logo in the corner. The sound and logo suggest that I set everything up ok, but did anyone else experience this blank screen? Having watched...
