I can't get rid of the smell by Brian Gaff
T'other day, I put on my not that old TV. I never normally use it when I'm here on my own as the screen is a little redundant. However it was dusty inside it and as it got warm it made a smell not unlike that combination of old fan heater and melting transformer varnish one gets on older gear. No its flat screen, but anyway, eventually I forgot about it and yet since then all I can smell is...

OT:CCTV and Spiders Webs by Me
We have some CCTV cameras in the garden record the doings of local wildlife overnight.I looked at some of the video today and found 2 cameras virtually unviewable due to spiders webs. They seem to like casting webs around cameras, something to do with the LEDs or the warmth or possibly both. Does anyone know a way of keeping them off the cameras? Bob

OT: Car headlights question by Yellow[_3_]
In article , says... Sorry for the OT post, and for the fact that it's about cars. I normally try never to trigger any discussion whatever about cars because they usually go on for ever, but I have a question. Returning from taking a granddaughter to the station a couple of hours ago, it was startlingly...

OT: Car headlights question by Brian Gaff
I guess this is being done because led life is so high then having lights on at all times is not going to shorten the life of an old fashioned bulb. It was pointed out to me the other day that many underground car parks and tunnels have poor lighting, and so lights that cannot be turned off is seen as a safety feature. I thin pointed out that many electric cars have no running noise to help...

Promo sim by Peter Johnson[_5_]

Today's puzzle by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I have an old, but perfectly usable, 37" Panasonic LED TV. It happily displays full HD (1080i/p), but only has an SD tuner. With so much being transmitted on HD channels, I thought it time to get an HD box for it. Fortuitously, I was in John Lewis today, and decided to browse round the TV dept. In one area they had the "customer returns", and I spotted a Manhattan Plaza HD T2 box, with...

Tennis on 1080i by Scott[_2_]
How come the tennis on terrestrial HD is being shown in 1080i? I thought 1080p was used for fast moving images and 1080i for relatively static shots.

Horizon 2017: Strange Signals from Outer Space by Phi
Not much original science content in this programme and the narrator keeps repeating what the scientists say.

OT: Car headlights question by Andy Burns[_12_]
Jeff Layman wrote: Lucky you to have an "off" position which works. The off position for the headlights is a normal rotary switch, but I find it annoying when it goes in for service or MOT and comes back with it left on "off" rather than "auto", similar with the rain sensitive wipers. The off setting for the DRLs is buried deep in a menu somewhere.

BT/Plusnet TV Recorder (DTR-T2100) by thesimpsons
When playing back an off air recording, if I select fast forward the screen displays a perfect speeded up image. If playing back a recording from an internet channel, fast forward displays "snap shots" of the speeded up image. Just wondering why this should be, it's the same on both a ten year Panasonic and a recent Sony TV. Fred

Shift of tennis from BBC Two to BBC One by Scott[_2_]
Why does the BBC continue to shift tennis matches from BBC Two to BBC One when particular games are being played, such as Murray v Fognini tonight? Do they think tennis fans are too stupid to operate a remote control successfully? If anyone sets up a recording of the tennis - or Eastenders for that matter - will they end up with the wrong programme recorded or do programme codes handle that?

Philips with extended accessibility by Brian Gaff
I've been told by several sources that all manufacturers who sell tvs in the USA are now forced to make the voice menu driven, ie they need to speak menus. Philips are making great play on this over here, so the big question is, what is the way to find if these tvs really do have the voice. I bet its not on by default and if its being forced on them by the fcc in the states, surely we...

channel line-up by Bill Wright[_3_]
The Freeview TV guide (the LCN) is set to be updated and expanded on Wednesday, 2 August. Some channels will be moving to new numbers and viewers may need to retune to ensure they have the latest channel line-up, where this isn’t automatic. Ofcom have published more info on 700 MHz with some start dates for the STV channel moves. Link to the information on Digital UK’s...

an easy way to share files and a strange thing in a BBC programme by Bill Wright[_3_]
I am helping with a closed user group on Facebook. We have pinned a page to the head of the list that contains links to Dropbox files that are for permanent reference. We don't want the whole darned contents of the files displayed in Facebook because if they are pinned to top of the list it will be a nuisance and if they aren't they will move down and be forgotten. Many of the 150...
