My5 awful to use by Clive Page[_4_]
We missed an episode of a series on Channel 5 so last night tried to use the "catch up" service called My5. It was just awful. It took a lot of hassle to get it started at all (accepting 3rd party cookies, disabling ad-blocking, etc). When we paused and resumed a couple of times it insisted on starting at the beginning of the programme again. Each time it started with a set of 5 adverts that...

TOT: microwave oven power consumption by Scott[_2_]
My friend - who is very ecologically aware - asked whether a microwave uses less electricity than a conventional oven. My assumption is that it must do - and very substantially. Could anyone confirm whether I am correct and provide an approximate factor?

Analogue Video senders still in use by Brian Gaff
I was just poodling around the uhf tv band on my scanner the other day when I heard the unmistakable sound of analogue tv and fm sound. It was some foreign language film, sounded polish or something similar. At first I though it was real DX, but I think even Eastern Europe has now gone digital, so I monitored the sound and it eventually sort of changed to a UK channel, so I guess it was a...

sky fitters and roofs by Andy Burns[_12_]
Neighbour has had a dish on chimney for years, and pays the sky tax, he asked about sky Q the other day, it sounded like the features would suit them, so today a sky van appeared outside their house, I knew it'd need a new wideband LNB, and assumed they'd just swap it, or maybe replace the whole dish for good measure. Just poked my head out for a look and he's added a new dish on the...

Does the BBC allocate HD to different areas ? by Phi
I am streaming from the North East at the moment, but the picture looks slightly blurred. I switched to London but still there was no HD available there either, perhaps it was the low value of the programme.
