ITV 3 on SKY blackout by Ron[_10_]
While watching ITV 3 on SKY I've noticed that when the advert break starts and the sponsored by Viking ad comes on there is always a momentary break in the sound and a momentary black screen. Even the EPG vanishes if on. This happens all the time. Is it just my TV and Sky box or is this...

why do women think we can hear them through walls? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Why is it? You can be two rooms away with the telly and the chip pan on and they'll issue some instruction and expect you to hear what they're on about. Then when you don't they get the hump. Bill

Interesting ITV+1 Subtitles by Davey
The local evening news tonight was most confusing, the subtitles came on 15 seconds before the spoken word. I have seen plenty of mis-coordination, but this was exceptional. -- Davey.

killing the bass (was 'some sort of tone control') by Bill Wright[_3_]
OK, well, putting a capacitor in series with the audio feed worked. Thanks to everyone who responded. I knew the basic idea but I assumed that such a simple solution would be too crude. I have a box of misc capacitors from wayback. Damned if I can remember the colour codes and how they work. A...

some sort of tone control? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Thanks everyone for the comments about connecting one audio source to two amplifiers. Yes it works fine! But there's another problem. The little wall-mounted audio units seem (without blowing the dust off my scope) to have a response that goes almost down to DC. The audio is very bass-heavy and...

Aljazeera SD by Davey
What happened to Aljazeera on Freeview 133? Suddenly, all it says is that Aljazeera HD can be found on Ch. 108, which is fine if your set receives HD. But the SD feed is now gone. Do they think that everybody's sets all receive HD? The website still gives the impression that Ch. 133 is active. --...

how to split audio by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have a series of mikes with built-in pre-amps. These feed 'standard audio' into a recording device. I want to feed some of the mikes into two separate recording devices. How do I split the audio? Bill

Winter? by Davey
The Beeb has announced that the long cold winter in the South is about to end. Umm, excuse me, I still haven't seen winter here in East Anglia, in fact, I'm still waiting for last Summer. Are they on a different planet to us? Or does living in Salford distort the view? -- Davey.

Grumble - Tivo - grumble...BBC....grumble...F1..... by David[_19_]
Just finished working my way through the recordings of the 2015 F1 Grand Prix on our Virgin Tivo. Away at the end of last year so couldn't watch it then. All very fine, until the last race. The Abu Dhabi GP was shown as the recording title, but instead it was a recording of the Davis Cup...

UK TV by pinnerite
I wanted to try to watch a missed episode of The Bill this morning. This channel tells me my version of Adobe Reader is out of date. It may be but it works across most 'catch-up sites. Maybe they have anti- Linux triggers built in. If so they've lost one potential viewer. Thank goodness HMTL5 is...

Delay in on-line TV by Scott[_4_]
I was watching Breakfast on BBC One in bed on my iPad. At 7.30 they said BBC One would show Match of the Day and Breakfast would continue on BBC News. I changed to BBC News and saw that part again - in other words BBC News was running about 1 minute behind BBC One. I am totally puzzled why this...

Audio description gurgle by Brian Gaff
I noticed last night on some programmes with AD that the AD andits fade up and down tended to be going in short bits and starts, as if modulated by a dalek simulator, but not as distorted. Rebooting the box seems not to fisx it but switching channels back and forth seemed to. sounds like a...

Tell us something we don't know by Jeff Layman[_2_]
At the bottom of the Radio Times pages with all the Sky TV programmes the words "All programmes on the above channels are repeats unless otherwise stated" appear. I'm not sure how long the RT have been doing this, but the same words have just started appearing on the Freeview channels pages. I...

John and Tessa by Bill Wright[_3_]
I drempt that I went to a trade show. There was a lecture that I was interested in so I went into the hall and sat down. Then I realised John Reddihough and Tessa were sitting just in front of me. Afterwards we went and had a beer and reminisced about the old days. It was lovely. As many of you...

Complaints to broadcasters by Brian Gaff
Hi is there a list of telephone numbers for the majority of freeview channels? The whole thing is now bewildering and it has been suggested by some people that these numbers are kept low key as they just don't want to know what the people think. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting...

Series are shorter than they used to be. by Brian Gaff
I notice that both Vera and Midsummer Murders have now ended their runs. OK they are quite long, but I did not count the number they made, but its not very many. So, is it that cash is short or just that the term 'series' means anything with more than 2 programmes these days? to me the length...
