Youtube needs a new name by Brian Gaff
After all, presumable the tube bit was when most displays were in fact CRT based. What could they call it instead I wonder? MYVID? Brian --

a very small foreign body by Bill Wright[_3_]
I'm used to this thing where the bottom of the charge socket on the iPhone gets compacted fluff in it and you have to scrape it out with a non-conductive sliver of something, like a bit of hardwood. But the technique failed on Saturday. No way would the phone charge. I tried three chargers. On...

rip off by Brian Gaff
Not much really. It might have been nice to photograph the job as left. 97 sounds a lot, I'd have said 25 more apt. Sounds definitely like somebody is exploiting lack of knowledge. I'd take them to court myself, however I also think that the people who run the flats should perhaps make sure...

Freesat PVRs - can I check my understanding of the technology by NY

Hmm gone very very quiet here... by Brian Gaff
I was pondering the other day, in the absence of sight, how the definition compares nowadays with a good 625 or 405 line tv programme from the past? I'm forever hearing that the problems today are worse than a good betamax tape years ago, in that they are often fuzzy, and blocky with not very...

STBs by Woody[_4_]
Does anyone know of a Freeview or Freesat STB that has a numeric channel display on the front panel? I would like to try one out in place of the tuner on my hi-fi without having to use a TV to select the station. TIA -- Woody

I need aerodynamic wires by Brian Gaff
Last week when it was very windy I heard a number of tones coming through the house and also in the air outside. It turned out to be cables and an aerial wire I use for short wave reception, its not even taught, but put a finger on it and you can feel the vibration. I remember on Wichita...

OT a bit. Documentaries by Bill Wright[_3_]
I've just watched a Discovery documentary (on Quest HD Freeview 114). It was about the Costa Concordia. It told the story clearly, with good explanatory graphics and talking heads. No gimmicky camera work such as out of focus shots, deliberate over exposure, too much or too little colour etc....

Jitter watching recorded Channel 5 programmes by [email protected]
Just a quick question for you all, please, before I go into the gory detail. I recorded the Paddington Station programme. All the adverts and trailers have "jitter" (maybe one double stutter per second) but all of the programme sections themselves are perfectly smooth. I'm sure there must be an...

Replaced old YouView box with current model. by David Wade[_3_]
Folks, Some of you may remember that almost 2 years ago I asked about the slowness of my old HUMAX YouView+ box. Well I "bit the bullet" and replaced it with one of the newer DTR2110 models. Its performance is really is a total eye opener. Virtually instant response to menus. The remote even...

Programme cut short by Davey
I sat down this morning to watch my recording of Ch. 5's WRC Welsh Rally, and just before the end, it was uncertain who was about to win it. Then the recording stopped, according to the signal sent out by Ch. 5. I happened to have it on a second recorder, and it was the same. It was as though...
