Adding to the gaiety of nations by Bill Wright[_3_]
I might have mentioned this before but I can't remember, so here it is again. A few weeks ago I was trudging round Morrisons when the background music thing suddenly played Barbara Ann by the Beachboys. It's a catchy tune and it has many happy associations for those of us of a certain age. So I...

music while you try to think by Bill Wright[_3_]
I've been to the bank to open an account. I was made to watch a series of videos that explained everything. Trouble is the videos had music that made it hard for me to hear the words. How daft is that? The girl said, "Well it's upbeat music Mr Wright. It's to make you feel all bubbly and...

Keyboard for TV? by Kenny
I have a 50" LG Smart TV, internet seems slow on it in comparison with PC's, tablets and phones all using the same wi-fi connection. I find using the on screen keyboard with the remote very fiddly and slow and was wondering about using one of those mini keyboards instead. Any recommendations...

Recording HD from Freeview/Freesat - Xpost by David[_19_]
I have been nudged back into thinking about recording TV using a PC by the dire performance of my Bush satellite decoder. All the "Smart" stuff gave up a while back when they changed the iPlayer specs. The EPG keeps flipping from showing what is on to "No information available" and mostly you...

Sick hummy fixed by Vir Campestris
Our HDR Fox-T2 started playing silly buggers. Kept rebooting, lost several recordings was getting worse. So I took it apart, stuck the drive in a PC, and checked it - all OK. Put the drive back intending to back up the files I most wanted. Fiddling about with an app to walk the directory, and...

Oh dear me, another technical fault by Phi

Huge shift in Lip Sync BBC1 1900 by Dickie mint[_2_]
Several times over the last few weeks, when BBC1HD (108) goes into the One Show the lip sync is way out. It seems to be an effect of the ad, sorry trail, voice over. Anyone else see this? Solved by switching to 109 (BBC2SD) and back. Humax Foxsat HDR.
