Sony Radio Repair by Norman Wells[_7_]
I have a tiny 23 year-old Sony radio (ICF-SW1) that has developed what appears to be a standard fault of distorted sound through the speaker but not via headphones. All the websites I've been to seem to think it's a capacitor problem and that they all need replacing. It's a quality bit of kit...

Smart TV Keyboard by Graham.[_12_]
Generally speaking, is it safe to assume that if a TV has a USB socket, you can plug in a PC keyboard and use it instead of struggling with the supplied IR handset? -- Graham. %Profound_observation%

Freeview BBC News Channel 231 (standard definition) not available? by Maurice[_3_]
Yesterday, as we were recording 2 Freesat channels on our Humax, I switched over to our TV's Freeview receiver (which does not do HD). But when I selected '231', it said 'not available'. So did a complete auto-retune. Still can't make 231 show anything. Googling 'BBC News freeview'...

Must sign in to iPLayer by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I see that it is now a requirement to sign in to use iPlayer. Not sure how this will work with the iPlayer app on my Panasonic smart TV as it asks for a code to be entered, albeit apparently only once. If it is only possible to enter a code through the Firefox app on the TV, does that mean...

Long story short: I asked in June about the problems of our Humax HDR-Fox T2, 5 years old, green-screening. I received several useful suggestions, and indeed I found much discussion elsewhere, via Google. In short: nothing seems to fix it, nor does there seem to be any definite ...
