PVR reliability by Jeff Layman[_2_]
About 15 months ago my trusty Humax 9200T, then 5 or 6 years old, started playing up. I decided a new PVR was required. After looking around, I got an Echostar Ultra Slim Box HDT-610R. The hard disk failed after 6 months. Fortunately I'd bought it from John Lewis, who refunded the full...

Do speakers go off with age? by Norman Wells[_7_]
I was just curious to know if loudspeakers go off with age. I have a pair of Bowers and Wilkins DM1's which were quite well regarded when I bought them, but that must now be over 40 years ago. Do speakers have a limited life? Have they come on much over the years that would make replacing...

Snails and aerials by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I ws outside yesterday with a sighted person, and we were trimming back some shrubs. On looking up she said, there are three snails on your aerial. Apparently they must have climbed all the way up the side of the house, then the pole onto the aerial. Igave it a shake from the window, and two...

Not exactly tv, but.. by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I was listening on the band 137Mhz to 138Mhz this morning. On there are satellites which seemingly are transmitting pictures sounding not unlike old fashioned Fax Machines. After some research I understand these are sending pictures of the earth under where they are orbiting. The strengths are...

On topic probably, Help Required by madge
I was at a bootfair a couple of weeks ago and a chappie was selling Seagate pipeline hd mini 320 gb laptop size sata drives I bought three of them, (cheap). Probably removed from a branded Digital Terrestrial PVR/DVR as he had a few of those on sale as well. My problem is they are recognised...

Black Boxes by Ashley Booth[_2_]

BBC Radio 4 by Y Dangle
Some time ago I posted about http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_fourfm not remembering the volume level when revisited. Although they never properly answered my complaint, BBC now seem to have fixed the problem. Y. --- This email is free from viruses and malware because avast!...

BBC News in the dark? by Victor Delta[_2_]
Did anyone else find the studio in last night's BBC1 10pm News bulletin very dark? It was as if some of the lights had been turned off (economy measure?). The effect was particularly noticeable in shots of Clive Myrie (and Gary O'Donoghue at Westminster). All the other VT feeds etc. were...

Radio for blind people by Max Demian
RNIB's Insight Radio on Freeview 730. Makes sense I suppose. Makes me wonder why Classic FM don't have a Freeview channel, or is the RNIB very rich? Some charities are, you know. Freeview TV must cost a lot more than radio, so how do all the rubbish channels (BONANZABONANZA, CBS Reality, POP,...

Anything in "digital signal boosters"? by Another John
Is there anything in these here "digital tv aerial boosters"? (ISTR that the analogue equivalents of some years ago were just so much ju-ju.) (Dunno if it makes any difference, but we only use Freeview.) Our secondary TV (bedroom) doesn't get a very good signal, and rather than repeatedly...

Odd subtitles by Davey
Just finished watching The Iron Cross on BBC2, and all through the film, there were very brief, as in one frame long, subtitles appearing. They were comments, such as 'In foreign language', and suchlike, instead of dialogue, but totally useless, being so fast. Weird. -- Davey.
