The new freezer came with an envelope containing the instructions and so forth. There was a large label on the bag: REGISTER NOW!" This would 'activate the free one year guarantee'. This seems to do no more than duplicate our statutory rights. In the bag was a glossy brochure offering 'Peace of...

Who is responsible for levels? by Brian Gaff
I'm noting more and more on Freeview and to some extent on the internet feeds that radio and tv sound is all over the place. is there no way to fix this issue over all the broadcasters? One might have thought that given the digital nature of distribution some kind of peak monitoring would raise...

green subtitle background by Bill Wright[_3_]
I watched the programme about N Yorks police tonight and because some speech was indistinct subtitles had been added. These were white on a solid green background rectangle. It was very effective I thought. Bill

Electronic device recovering after hot environment? by Bill Wright[_3_]
We have a VHF/UHF amplifier (quite an expensive one) that the builders covered with glass fibre in a loft. The air temp in the loft was 48C so God knows what it was inside the amp, but it was dead and it burnt the fingers of the person who discovered it. Thing is, it has now been on soak test...
