Rugby - live in 1937? by Scott[_4_]
The commentator says the first live TV broadcast of the rugby international was 80 years ago, in 1938. How did they do that? There was only one transmitter (Alexandra Palace) and the match was presumably played at Murrayfield or Twickenham. Would GPO lines be used? Which system was used -...

Induction loops by Brian Gaff
Another form of transmission is the induction loop, often used by those with hearing aids. I never did figure out quite how these seemed to work quite as well as they did even in quite large aareas. I expected to see some mega wire wound multiple times around the target area, but when I...

Global positioning by Brian Gaff
I ride in a lot of taxis, and am often amused by the sat nav that many of the non English drivers seem to use. In the country they are fine, but in the built up towns you often get them missing turns and all sorts. One guy said to me in a broken English, I blame all this satellite TV for...

childhood inventions by [email protected]
I was brought up in a house that was a few hundred yards from the edge of a vast estate of council and NCB houses. If anyone's interested it was on Middlegate, Scawthorpe, Doncaster. We often used to walk up the hill to the field at the side of the quarry, from where there was a view across the...

Galileo ever come on stream? by Brian Gaff
I was listening to a presentation by a company talking about the various spacecraft supported by their sat nav and they said it was Galileo ready after a software update. Now correct me if I'm wrong but it must be at least a decade ago, these craft were supposed to be going into orbit for the...

Youview Question by Jeff Gaines
There is an advert for Youview on Mellow Magic which says you need a minimum broadband speed of 2 Megabytes per second. It seemed odd to me since BB speeds are usually specified as Megabits per second. The Youview site says 3 Mbps is required. It seems to me the advert is wrong, any...

Problems today with muxes 7 and 8 by Bill Wright[_3_]
Today the GI was increased from 1/128 to 1/16 on muxes 7 and 8. GI is guard interval. It’s been increased today from 1/128 to 1/16 so they can operate single frequency networks because of the shortage of channels starting in March when we lose channels above 49. It appears that some but not...

Channel 20 Drama doesn't use whole screen by Chris Green
Programs (as opposed to adverts) on Drama (Channel 20, Freeview) don't display full screen on our system. We have a pretty standard LG TV with a Humax PVR. It's not just too tall or too wide, there's a black band all round the displayed picture. So, even if preserving the screen proportions...

Streaming dongle choice, or ? by Davey
Having been flummoxed again by the inability of my Linux PC to access All4, I saw the current ad. for refurbished Humax boxes. The most suitable for me is £117, the FVP-4000T. I then wondered about using a streaming stick instead, Google or Roku or whatever, about which I know very...

COM 7 off again for Sonys at Emley Moor by Bill Wright[_3_]
Could Sony TV owners please check (EPG) channels 107 to 111. If there's no reception could you note the transmitter if known (or your rough location) and the time, and post the info here? I'm wondering if other transmitters are involved. Bill
