A couple of quick Qs about freesat... by Tim+[_4_]
My sister has moved into a rented house in the middle of nowhere with b*gger all terrestrial reception but it does have a dish with a double cable. I presume this means that she can use a freesat box or PVR with twin tuners? (I know nothing about sat). She may only be in this property for a few months so may not want to invest too much in a freesat pvr. Can anyone recommend a decent budget...

why 12V? by Bill Wright[_3_]
So many things run on 12V DC. Firstly, why has that become the standard? Is it all because of the nominal voltage of a car battery? Secondly, wouldn't 24 or 48V be more convenient for many things? I heard a few years back something about new cars being 48V in the near future. Did it ever happen? Bill

Smart talk replacement remote controls by Brian Gaff
Does anyone know if its possible to get these? I ask as I know in the past on here folk have suggested that people get a remote that can be taught what to do. Sadly for a blind person they get used to the buttons shapes and positions. These remotes are the weak link in this basic device since the bits of debris from the rubber buttons get into the wells for the contacts and stop them...

This content does not seem to be working by Phi
Halfway through Attenborough on the Great Barrie Reef on iPlayer through Browser, it just stops dead. Had near perfect streaming up to this point. I had to restart, but not from where I left off.

Freesat EPG and ch. 4 etc. by PeterC
All of the EPG is OK for 7 days except for Ch. 4, it's clones and some, I assume, associated channels. These are OK for 5 days only. Any idea why, please? It's a bit of a nuisance as I like to check what's on in a week's timeon each day. -- Peter. The gods will stay away whilst religions hold sway

TV system conversion by Bill Wright[_3_]
At the time when when I was a baby the only way was to point a camera at a screen. Results were unimpressive. By 1964 things had moved on and conversion was electronic. The equipment had 2,000 transistors and occupied two full height racks. http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?arnumber=5266568 I have just bought a gadget that converts TVI and AHD to HDMI, VGA, and CVBS. It handles 720p...

serving the public by Bill Wright[_3_]
For many years I've used a particular butcher. I must have spent thousands in that shop. I believe in building up a relationship. Yesterday I asked for something I often buy: beef dripping (it makes fantastic roasties). "Don't keep it any more." "Why?" "Not many people wanted it." He shrugged and turned away. I was going to say, "Well I buy it," or something like that, but then I thought,...

Weird channel anomaly by Pinnerite
My incoming aerial signal is amplified after it enters my loft. It feeds down through the first floor to the ground floor where it is fed into a socket on a TBS dual tuner card in a computer serving as an HTPC. This has an output socket from which a cable feeds a Samsung Smart TV sited above it.. Recently one of the channels on the TV said that CBS Drama had moved and to retune. We did,...

get_iplayer cannot get metadata since 13th March (Monday afternoon) by Johnny B Good[_2_]
Hello group. I've not been able to update the index since Monday afternoon. Requesting the full TV listing (piped to a text file) reveals an index with less than 7000 entries, none later than about 2pm last Monday. If I try to force a list of *added* entries by looking for "channel patrol", it comes up empty. It looks like either something's screwed up my installation of get_iplayer...

Please recommend a DTT PVR by fred[_3_]
My ageing mum has just moved house to no Sky (and box with record) - DTT only. Please recommend a PVR. I believe I saw one in Tesco at ~ 130. Simplicity of use (not masses of features) is paramount. Thanks.

vision v40-104 modulators.... where can I get instructions from the internet? by [email protected]
Hi all, Over a period of time I have been quietly buying vision v40-104 modulators from ebay so that I can feed 8 CCTV cameras into my freeview/freesat/fm/dab distribution system. (the 700 MHz clearance will provide me with extra UHF channels to add the rest of the cameras after already populating 62, 64, 66 and 68 for the 1st 4 cameras) Only trouble is they did not come with any...

Sky doing away with dishes?? by Brian Gaff
I was intrigued by a comment from an expert on one of these late night phone ins the other day about the great plan for Sky is to be completely internet based in a few years, thus no dish will be needed. Does this not in effect make them a cable company? If they do go this route, where would that leave freesat? Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...

terrible confusion by Bill Wright[_3_]
The other day I had a vague thought about the switch from analogue to digital TV, and somehow in my mind it got confused with the switch from 405-VHF to 625-UHF. Oh dear. Bill

Hybrid electric generators by Ian Jackson[_6_]
There's just been an item on the 10:30pm BBC 1 local news for London about using a hybrid generator to supply the electricity for the operations to demolish a Ford site in Dagenham. The hybrid generator uses diesel and electricity - so when it's running on electricity, it's using electricity to generate electricity. Are we approaching the time when efficiencies of more than 100% can be...
