Who comes up with the part numbers for things? by Brian Gaff

Humax Freesat Foxsat box by Bill Wright[_3_]
Quite an old box this; I don't know how old. It's used intensively for a few days then not used probably for weeks. It developed a fault as follows: It took ten minutes or more to load the programme guide. If any button was pressed during this time the box would freeze completely. Sometimes the...

Problem after Humax Foxsat HD OTA S/W upgrade. by John Aldred
Tonight I did the Freesat OTA software upgrade for the Humax Foxsat HD box. I am now getting sporadic picture breakup on all main channels. The BBC HD channel is unwatchable. I've tried the Humax box on another dish and TV with the same result. I have an old Sky digibox which is working OK with...

Vintage TV by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
This has disappeared off Freesat, although it is still broadcast FTA from satellite, but for how long? On Freeview it has moved to channel 86, but only a TV with a Freeview HD tuner can pick this up even though it is only SD, otherwise the channel does not appear. There is no diagnostic, and both...

Independence Day. by Ian Field
With all the people ditching VHS, I found an un-edited original copy where Will Smith uses a naughty word at least twice. Anyone know whether any un-edited DVDs got released? Thanks.

Got them back thanks to sunshine by Brian Gaff
The full list of freeview that is, on the old aerial. I suspect this means that it is indeed the coax which is the culprit here and has now dried out. I feel some purchasing coming on. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian...

Weird sound quality on Trainspotting Live (Tuesday 12 July episode) by NY
Most of the programme was fine, but the segments with Dick Strawbridge in Swindon had very odd sound, as if it was recorded with a stereo mike that had been panned slightly left and then had one leg reversed, giving an odd "extra-wide" sound-field. Quite a challenge to listen to (especially on...

Deadline Gallipoli by pinnerite
I watched the last episode of the TV series tonight. In opening of one scene the label read 'Australian Embassy'. This was supposed to be in London. Countries where the HM The Queen is head of state are not represented here by embassies but by Commissions or Consulates as I have always...

Retuning by Jonathan[_2_]
We have a Sony TV in our house and a Panasonic in a holiday let attached to our house. Recently the Panasonic has demanded a retune twice, with no such demand from the Sony or the HUMAX box attached to it. So far as I know both pick up the Sutton Coldfield signal. Can anyone explain what is going...
