Sound levels by Brian Gaff[_2_]
Why can't the various broadcasters get this right? Really last night was very quiet compared to the rest, Insight radio is still too loud and all the radio channels aare louder than the tv channels. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active

Electoral broadcasts by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I understand that Election Broadcasts are immune to the normal legal requirements wrt being honest and truthful, for fairly obvious reasons. However what if an Election Broadcast is in reality *not* an Election Broadcast? If you've seen the recent SNP "Euro election Election Broadcast" you...

Fragmented images / auduio by Pinnerite[_2_]
I hesitated before posting this, expecting a thread to have been started and heavily endorsed by now. However, I receive transmissions from Crystal Palace. For the last few days, channels 3, 4, 5, 6, 13. 15 and 33 have been breaking up or the TV suggested thought that the feed needed checking....

Is there no requirement for government ministers to be numerate? by Robin[_9_]
Am I being totally unreasonable in expecting him to know the difference? After all, he does apparently have a degree in "Urban Estate Surveying - whatever that is! No. But I think you are being a bit unreasonable in making so much of him using "square kilometres" rather than "kilometres...

LNB question by Indy Jess John
I asked the following elsewhere but the only helpful answer I got was to ask here, so that is what I am doing. A bit of background: When TV broadcasts went digital, I bought a dish and freesat decoder, which was connected to a non-digital TV via a non-digital DVD recorder which connected to the...

Russ Andrews, the final word? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
As many have said before, the tiny amount you would gain using a Russ Andrews mains plug or lead is so vanishingly small compared to the rest of the supply network beyond your control, that I simply cannot see why anyone would want to buy the devices. Even if you rewired your house with...

CBS Reality? by Brian Gaff
This station seems to be pretty dire. Eveytime I look in its got things called. Cops Cops reloaded or More cops etc on. Then there is Cheaters which seems to have been nicked from Really. Is the world awash with really naff tv? Who is funding it? Brian

My brilliant idea and how I refined it by Bill Wright[_2_]
I have a little notebook with 100 pages. I write things in it. Shopping lists, appointments, phone numbers, all sorts of things. For years I've had the problem that I can't find things in the little book. I used to flick through it for ages sometimes, with the queue behind me in the butcher's...

A Bronx Tale: BBC1 HD DTT and DSAT by Bill Wright[_2_]
Chroma patterning! As in days of old! Particularly noticeable on the edges of bright reds and oranges. The resolution was poor: about like SD I'd say. Anyone know why there should be these faults on a movie? Bill

London Live by Brian Gaff
Not the One Show. Well quite obviously its not, it should be called the crap show. I've looked at this station and really its aimed at who??? Vacuous teens with brains scrambled by weed, perhaps? Brian -- From the Bed of Brian Gaff.

Samsung LCD TV Brightness by Davey
My three-year-old Samsung appears to have lost some of its screen brightness. I have been looking for info. online, and I see some references to lamp degradation. Does this make sense? I tried to find a manual on the Samsung website, and there was a gap where my LE19C350 unit should be. The User...

Dalziel and Pascoe subtitles by Davey
We watched a recording of the latest programme on Drama, and the subtitles were worth a programme of their own. They were frequently ahead of the action, sometimes a whole scene change in advance, so it gave a kind of 'Time Machine' experience. 'You knew the answer before you heard the question'...

Paul O'Grady's aliasing jacket. by MartinR
On his show (was it last night or the night before) he clearly hadn't read the "What to wear on TV" handbook as his tweedy jacket was flashing on and off like a Belisha beacon. The aliasing wouldn't be noticeable on SD but on HD the pattern matched HD resolution pretty closely.

Reply from Humax on PVR9200 freezing by Derek F[_4_]
I contacted Humax (again) for any suggestions on my PVR 9200T freezing, failing to record or recording without sound. First time a few months ago they suggested the box may be faulty but to try going through the default set up again.That improved things for a few weeks. This time they...

Anyone see Hinterland last night? by Woody[_4_]
Well, at least you could hear most of the diction even if some of it was in a strange tongue! However as seems to be the way these days there were some terrible continuity gaffs - the train timetable on the level crossing, removing the wood over the dormer window, viewing directions - I won't...

Deliberate interruption in political broadcast last night? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
The rather simplistic BNP party had a broadcast last night on ITV London in the middle of the news, but at one point in the what might just about becalled policy description, there was a fad down of the voice and a test tone at high level was broadcast for some seconds, and they it faded back...

Satellite dishes by Mark Carver
