Look !, no hands (aeriel actually) by Andrew[_6_]
The recent rain has made TV reception a bit iffy in my house. I am 10 miles from Midhurst and the 15 element group C/D aerial blew down in 2000 so I lashed it up in the loft with some string as a temporary measure .... 19 years and many transmitter retunes later and Quest is impossible (LCN 29 I...

You're nearly all still here. Amazon Fire USB stick question by madge
I was given a Version 1 Amazon Fire USB stick for free but no remote, the giver can't find it down the back of the sofa?? Is it really worth buying one of the Hong Kong 7.50 remote copies on ebay? Thanks in advance.

Has your electricals been recalled? by Adrian Caspersz

Handbrake... by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I'm about to update a couple of machines by giving them a new SSD and installing a newer version of the distros I prefer. Doing this on another machine recently has raised a couple of questions in my mind when using Handbrake to convert DVD iso images into convenient AV files. Q1) Where does...

One cable from satellite dish, three F-connector cables to living room by NY[_2_]
My new house has three cables with F connectors and one with a Belling Lee connector. The F-connector ones all seem to be satellite, though I've only got one receiver at the moment so I can't test what happens if I try to tune to two different channels on two different cables (assuming channels...

"Rabbit" video extender - 80s technology by jamie powell
Visiting a uni friend at her parents' house today, I was intrigued to find an 'old-skool' video extender device installed in her bedroom. Branded 'Rabbit' and dated 1985, the system consists of two silver boxes - a mains-powered one in the lounge with phono composite video and stereo audio...

What type of aerial? by Marland
What would the large aerial shown on this link be intended for? https://goo.gl/maps/W1n8qZgMNodzVr817 Looks in far too good a condition to have survived from the days of 405 line VHF days but perhaps it is, or would it be for radio. FWIW Stockland Hill mast is close to the location but assuming...

Bitrates on satellit TV channels.... by [email protected]
While randomly browsing through TV channels on my technisat box last night, I saw a film with Roger Moore in it.... This was on a channel called RBB which is Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg. Thinking it was James Bond, I called up the EPG and it turned out it was Die Zwei which is German for The Two...

Sky Box Kaput by Jeff Gaines
Last night's Sky+ HD upgrade seems to have toasted my Sky Box, it can't find my recordings. If it's a permanent issue I feel inclined to give up Sky and get a Freesat box if they are still available. Any suggestions for a good one please? I do like the Sky EPG but 40 a month is 40 a...

AT700 ? by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
During the 800MHz band clearance we had 'AT800' which at least nominally handed out 'free' filters to people whose reception was fouled up by the 'invading' phonoco TXs. I did need one of these filters as we got serious interference, and got a filter when I asked for one. Is there an equivalent...

Undeclared changes? by Davey
Recently, we have been getting the familar box onscreen on Ch.4, and others, telling us that there will be some changes amongst some of the Ch.4, More 4, etc channels on May 13th, and a retune will be needed. But there is nothing on the usual retune news pages that I can find. Is this everywhere,...

Periodic break up by Brian Gaff

Sorting out DVB capture as the deckchairs are being moved. by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've recently installed a new OS on the machine I used for DVB-T/T2 capture and analysis. Partly for recording some TV, but also to keep an eye on the processes of 'Deckchair shuffling' which we're going though. I've hit some snags and puzzles and will welcome help/reminders/etc... First point....
