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....

Green screen again (Humax PVR) by Another John
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 ...

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...

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...

Strange reception issues on Ch55 and 56 from Rowridge by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I have just fitted a 36-element log-periodic (https://www.amazon.co.uk/AERIAL-LOG-PERODIC-36-ELEMENT-TYPE/dp/B01L62DT7G/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1538838784&sr=8-11&keywords=optima+aerial) in place of a Group A 18-element yagi so that I can get Com7/8. I am about 18 miles from Rowridge, apparently...

HD signal strenght from CP by Andy Burns[_12_]
Robin wrote: I have a Blake log periodic (DML26WB) on a low pole 9 miles from CP and, while signal strength from Chs55-56 is lower than others, the quality as indicated by TV and PC is still 100%.* Suggests to me an issue in the path from the aerial rather than in the aerial itself. I...

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...

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

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...

Why do people buy 2nd hand Sky boxes? by Lucky13[_2_]
I've had a Sky+ HD box passed on to me and I was wondering why people buy them on eBay? If you want the + bit you need to subscribe. If you want the HD bit you need to subscribe. If you want Freesat then you need a Freesat box. If you want free sat from Sky then you need to enjoy scrolling...

Buzzing on a digital box. by Brian Gaff
No not buzzing as in audio hum like earth loop or open circuit earth, but buzzing as in old fashioned vision buzz as we used to get on some cheap 625 sets back in the day. How can this occur in this digital age? Brian -- ----- -- This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa...

Aerial installation (may be one for Bill) by Scott[_4_]
I visited a former colleague today who has bought a cottage where there is line of sight to Rosneath transmitter. She was charged 350 to install a TV aerial. Was she overcharged?

I've been personally involved with "proper" (i.e. not just sky/freeview) satellite for well over 20 years now recieving from a wide portion of the clarke belt. I was an avid reader of and contributor to a.s.t.c and a.s.t.e. (fellow satellite tv enthusiasts will know what I am talking about!) I...

Dumb question: aerial connections to TV by Another John
Sorry for interrupting this august body with a question so simple but ... Our TV (Sony Bravia) gets its aerial feed via the PVR (Humax Fox T2). Owing to its continuing Green Screen problems, the Humax is frequently powered off (via the switch on the back of the box). The TV picture then...
