Weather warnings by Scott[_2_]
Why do they use yellow and amber, which seem to me to be very similar? Should they not choose colours that are totally dissimilar, as with electrical cables? Anyone with a visual impairment could be confused.

snowy picture by Bill Wright[_3_]
When we had analogue TV and the signal to noise ratio was poor we would say the picture was snowy. When we had satellite TV with FM video and the signal to noise ratio was poor we would say the picture had sparklies. They were white or black. You had to tune the receiver to the midpoint where the white and black were about the same intensity. On modern HD CCTV snow can look like sparkles....

Disabling Unused Analogue TV Tuners - Samsung by Adrian C
Friends have just bought a new Samsung LCD television. (Series 4, LE32B450). Nice picture. I've noticed a little problem with it's builtin tuner setup. It has both analogue and digitial tuners arranged so that if ye press "1" for BBC1 you first get the digital (DTV) BBC service, and then if ye press "1" a second time, you get the analogue (ATV) BBC service. Sometimes it's showing ATV first,...

Weather Women by Phi
I have noticed over the last few years that women reading the weather forecast on the BBC seem to be rising in voice frequency. That skinny one on Look North has a very high pitched voice, to the point of being irritating.

Paranoia or real effect? by Brian Gaff
I was talking to somebody a week or so back who swears their freeview goes blacky and stutters whenever a plane from Heathrow goes over. Now in the good old analogue days you could detect aircraft flutter quite easily, how would you go about it on a digital system. I did not rise to the bait of suggesting I go around as to be honest there would be little I could do. We are after all in a...

As planned I upgraded my TV equipment by Bill Wright[_3_]
Regular readers of my fascinating missives will know that, annoyed by C4 HD leaving Freesat I vowed to add Freeview to my living room equipment. I bought a Humax FVP-5000T 1TB receiver and because I'm incapacitated Paul installed it for me. This was three days ago and so far I'm very impressed by the receiver. Very fast to respond, very user friendly, really good clear graphics. I haven't...

BBC accounts vanishing. by Brian Gaff
I have thus far had two accounts set up on the i player site for tv, and since I very seldom actually log in to see bbc stuff, I notice that they appear to have deleted both as my usernames and passwords come up as not valid. i hate sites that do this till in the end you have completely lost the bloody memory of which is the current one!

Upgrading Tivo to VM 6 box by David[_14_]
I'm just starting this process; I've received all the bits and the instructions and am reading through them. First thing; I've been given an SH3 as an upgrade to my original SH. I've read bad things about the SH3 and am reasonably happy with the 160 Mb/sec I currently get from my SH. I could go to 200 Mb/sec with the SH3 but if there are intermittent problems then it may not be worth it....

Along comes this guy with a pizza and asks with a slight accident. Is this Basketball court. I look at him, well in his direction and say, now does it look like one, its a block of flats. He...

Alexa TV Guide Skill by Brian Gaff
Has anyone managed to make this do anything sensible? I seem to be able to get bbc 1 and occasionally what is on any channel now or at a certain time, but ask it for a list for tonight it goes off and tells you what it thinks are the best things on, not the complete list or even a few from your favourites list. Most times it completely fouls up saying stuff like there is no channel called...

Sudden expenditure by Bill Wright[_3_]
I was annoyed about C4HD coming off Freesat because we like to watch 24 Hours in A & E and thought we wouldn't be able to see the gore so clearly in SD. Ages ago Swiss Classic on 13E went onto DVB S2 so my twenty quid box wouldn't relay it into the CCTV distribution anymore. I've decided to kill two or more birds. The Humax Freesat box will be connected to the 13E feed and set to...

snow affecting reception by Bill Wright[_3_]
At the moment the air temperature is well below freezing and there's a bit of wind, so the powdery snow isn't piling up on TV aerials. However if conditions change and the TV aerials get little piles of snow and ice on them reception will be affected. Horizontally polarised aerials are affected far more than VP ones. A few years ago we were inundated with calls about poor or no reception....
