Lashing a satellite dish to a chimney (max size?) (x-post from uk.d-i-y) by Seri Al-Najjar
I'm looking to upgrade my dish from a regular Sky Minidish to a 90cm Toroidal one with multiple LNB's to indulge my latest tinkering hobby. I don't really want a hulking great dish on the front of the house as I think the Sky one at the moment looks bad enough, so I'm going to take this...

mush zones and nerdiness by Bill Wright[_3_]
I drive around listening to a radio station that is playing abysmal 'music' and ludicrous adverts, with ludicrously abysmal reception, just so I can see where it fades in and out. I make predictions based on rough knowledge of topography and then see if they come true. Am I a nerd? If so, are...

Panasonic TV standby power by Malcolm H
My Panasonic TV TX-P46G10B consumes approx 30W on standby but the manual states it should be 0.4W (without monitor out recording). What is 'monitor out recording' and how can it be disabled? There is no reference to this in the manual. Same comments apply to my other TV Panasonic TX-L32D26BA. I...

Two weather forecasts by Scott[_4_]
Bizarrely on Reporting Scotland the presenter said that the European model differed from the UK Met Office model, adding that the BBC prefers the European model. They showed a picture of the Met Office model. If the BBC has severed its contract with the Met Office, in favour of Meteo Group, why...

Copying holiday videos from VCR to DVD. by DerekF[_2_]
Over the years I copied many holiday videos from VCR to DVD disks without any problems. I went back to catching up with them today with one from China where as usual I had added commentary and some local music. After a few minutes the dubbing stopped with a message saying copy write material....

Press green button to watch from start - BBC iPLayer by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Anyone else seeing this new(?) Dog on BBC2 (SD and HD) in place of the Text red button? It seems to have started in the last couple of days, and doesn't appear on BBC1. It appears to be removable by pressing the yellow or blue button. Pressing green takes you to iPlayer and will restart the...

Solution to the iPlayer downloads now only being offered in sd1issue by Johnny B Good[_2_]
Following on from the "iPlayer downloads now only being offered in sd1?" thread which rather got hijacked by Norman Welles's off topic copyright sub-thread, I'm reporting on how well my solution has progressed to an optimised work-around. Taking the hint from Jim's suggestion about enabling...

Question about STV+1 by Scott[_4_]
A friend asked me why STV+1 in the West of Scotland carries Edinburgh news (*). At first I assumed it was different multiplexes with STV+1 being on a national multiplex, but this cannot be correct as it is not (I assume) shown in England. I don't think it can be because of agreements with ITV...

I'm talking about the bog standard things, sometimes called 'choc blocks' or terminal strips. I much prefer the ones with wire protectors, but they seem to be rare. I've found them on the Rapid website and the CPC website I've and bought some. But since they're so much better why don't all...
