rose coloured spectacles by Bill Wright[_3_]
Yesterday lunchtime there was an episode of Still Open All Hours on the telly. BBC1 I think. Anyway, the whole programme had what appeared to be a warm tint. Things that were obviously white were pale pink. Was it made like this? If so I've never noticed it before. Or was it a fault or...

Horizontal halo FM aerials. Why??? by Brian Gregory[_2_]
Why do antenna installers for all blocks of flats still fit a stupid horizontal halo aerial for the FM radio aerial (the signal from which which is mixed with the output of a vertical folded dipole DAB aerial) to be distributed to the flats. Can every single aerial installer really be ignorant...

BBC shoots world wide distribution in its own foot by Brian Gaff

iPlayer on LG TV demanding agreement to export of data outside EEA by David[_20_]
Our new (2017 model) LG TV has loads of Apps, including iPlayer. This is now demanding that we agree to conditions about exporting data outside the EEA. If you click "later" it just throws you back to the TV. Anyone know what this is all about? Cheers

Help re installing SKY+HD box by Terry Pinnell[_3_]
A friend (OAP, zero tech savvy) phoned me seeking help. He had a SKY+ box delivered, replacing his old SKY box. He says it "works fine but does not connect to the internet, so can't use catchup". I'll get over there asap, of course, but I want to phone him back with a few basic questions first....

Software update for Panasonic TV by Jeff Layman[_2_]
For the first time since we bought out TX-55CX680B TV at the end of 2016 Panasonic have updated the software. But what have they updated? I couldn't see anything on Panasonic's website or on DigitalSpy. I'll search the net later using the new software version number to see if I can find...

OT scare stories by Bill Wright[_3_]
After the ITV news full of scare stories with the black news reader frowning furiously I switched to Sky news, where there were the same scare stories but a different black news reader frowning furiously. The prognostications of doom concerned Brexit and Global Warming. I've always found the...

English Women's Hockey by Jeff Gaines
The English women's hockey team has sadly fallen by the wayside. I asked this elsewhere with no response so thought I'd try here. We have a team of very fit, athletic and attractive young women running round in mini skirts (or shorts) and jumping up and down in excited synchronisation when they...

New LG TV - PCMCIA slot? by David[_20_]
Just taken delivery off a LG 55SJ850V and opened the online manual. The apertures include one labelled as a PCMCIA slot. Now I'm used to that from previous generation laptops (before USB became the default) but hadn't seen it as a TV interface before. Previous TVs have a CAM slot (which I have...
