OT: It's that conversation again. by Brian Gaff
Hmm, well the most expensive Washing machine I have ever seen was the ill fated Dysan one from some years ago. that cost the company a lot of money and bad press. it was just far too complicated and bits tended to fall off as well as the fact it was a non standard size. Brian -- ----- --...

It's that conversation again. by Brian Gaff
Yes very much so, I'd have fainted if my purchases were supposed to cost that. I recall that Legal and General would insure many domestic appliances on the contents insurance of your house for a lot less. Brian -- ----- -- This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of...

It's that conversation again. by Brian Gaff
Yes well sometimes they can be handy, but it very much depends. For example back in the4 early days of vcrs the Philips 1501 was what we all wanted. There was one on special offer in a local department store. It worked perfectly. However since it was cheaper than it should be I paid for five...

Handbrake... by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I'm about to update a couple of machines by giving them a new SSD and installing a newer version of the distros I prefer. Doing this on another machine recently has raised a couple of questions in my mind when using Handbrake to convert DVD iso images into convenient AV files. Q1) Where does...

Is SKY Q available on broadband yet. by Bill Ward[_2_]
From 2019 Sky will also be launching a version of Sky Q that works over broadband internet only. A Sky Q app will be launched that will be available on smart TVs, third-party set-top-boxes - likely Roku, considering Sky has a part-share in the company - and portable devices. Sky claims it will...

One cable from satellite dish, three F-connector cables to living room by NY[_2_]
My new house has three cables with F connectors and one with a Belling Lee connector. The F-connector ones all seem to be satellite, though I've only got one receiver at the moment so I can't test what happens if I try to tune to two different channels on two different cables (assuming channels...

What type of aerial? by Marland
What would the large aerial shown on this link be intended for? https://goo.gl/maps/W1n8qZgMNodzVr817 Looks in far too good a condition to have survived from the days of 405 line VHF days but perhaps it is, or would it be for radio. FWIW Stockland Hill mast is close to the location but assuming...

Sky Box Kaput by Jeff Gaines
Last night's Sky+ HD upgrade seems to have toasted my Sky Box, it can't find my recordings. If it's a permanent issue I feel inclined to give up Sky and get a Freesat box if they are still available. Any suggestions for a good one please? I do like the Sky EPG but 40 a month is 40 a...

AT700 ? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
During the 800MHz band clearance we had 'AT800' which at least nominally handed out 'free' filters to people whose reception was fouled up by the 'invading' phonoco TXs. I did need one of these filters as we got serious interference, and got a filter when I asked for one. Is there an equivalent...
