Edge of Tomorrow - non-existent programme recording clash by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I just tried to set up recording of the film "Edge of Tomorrow" on Ch5 at 2100 tonight. My Panasonic PVR reports an overlapping programme clash, and asked me to resolve it. But I have only two programmes set to record tonight, and they end before 2100. When I asked it to show the problem...

Must be OT - Ch 5 double recording by PeterC
Sorry about posting TV stuff. Every time I set Ch. 5 to record a film it also sets the repeat or first showing of it. It's the only channel to do so. Damned nuisance, as it sometimes clashes with another scheduled programme. Sometimes I have to remove the film and then remember to re-set it later,...

OT: load of crap on the telly by Bill Wright[_3_]
I recorded 'The Secret Life of Farm Animals' thinking it would give an insight into livestock farming. What a disappointment! The programme gave a sanitised, idealised view of farming. The colour was turned up so everything looked nice, the weather was perpetually pleasant, the music was twee,...

TOT: PC not finding printer by Woody[_4_]
Can anyone give me guidance on this one please - it has me baffled. I have a HP Laserjet 1022nw - that is a mono Ethernet printer that also has USB albeit unused. It is connected to an 8-port switch and thence to my TP-Link Archer D2 router. I am using a (home-built) PC with i5 and 16Gb RAM...

Weird subtitle problem on Drama by The Other John[_3_]
We were watching Brokenwood Mysteries on Drama last night. It's a New Zealand detective series a bit like Midsummer Murders. The NZ accents are a bit thick and I'm a bit deaf so I had the subtitles on. For the first few parts they were a sentence late so during an ad break I changed channels...

Another phone question by Brian Gaff
I have a base station and phone that contains a portable phone as a second phone. that second phone has now got a fault. What are the chances any old walkabout phone will still connect to the hub tranceiver, or how would one pair a new handset with such a device. I am told the standard these...

OT: darter by Bill Wright[_3_]
One afternoon in the late spring of 1965 we were told to form an orderly queue outside the library, just past the Art room. The WRCC had sent out a Careers Advisor, to advise us on our choice of career. I already knew that I was likely to be transferred to the High School to do a sixth form,...

The olden days by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have been telling someone about the 1970s was I was a contract aerial rigger. It's real 'we lived in a cardboard box' stuff! How did I average 15 calls per day? Don’t forget this was ye olden days when things were different. I was working mostly for rental firms where everything was cut...

Is there a Android app for BBC radio which supports "Live Restart"? I mean the feature where you can restart the current radio broadcast. At the moment, on iPlayer Radio on Adroid you have to wait until the current programme has finished if you want to start again from the beginning. If I use...

small TV's with built in clock by [email protected]
Hi Does anybody know if they still make smallish flatscreen TV's with a clock display permanently on the front. If so, where can they be purchased from. I am looking for a 20-32inch maximum screen size. When I got rid of the TV/Video combo (very old 12" Amstrad TVR-2) I found I actually miss not...

Several of the early facilities are now inaccessible to my 'smart' TV. I updated the software a few days ago but still cannot stream from ITV or 4, or I think from My5. I can get iplayer and Netflix but the loss of he others is irritating. Has anyone found a way round this? -- Ubuntu 18.04,...

Further to aerial installation rip-offs by Bill Wright[_3_]
A few points. I think the idea of rigging a fault and then inviting the suspected crook to diagnose it is fundamentally flawed, because an artificially-induced fault can rarely present a normal scenario to the suspected crook. For instance, in a previous series they replaced the fuse in the...

Aerial installation rip offs by Bill Wright[_3_]
Channel Five had an excellent programme tonight, 'House Trap', fronted by Esther Rantzen. It exposed the truly astonishing over-charging by a national TV aerial firm. Most victims were vulnerable people. As a retired aerial installer I was shocked and angered. Please watch it and warn your...
