What news of the metadata? by Brian Gaff
My wbie I player app is still telling me 404 nott found or no data available.

Youview box - can it be used without internet? by Mike Tomlinson[_2_]
Picked up a Huawei model DN360T Youview box new and unused, boxed with all the cables and remote, at a car boot for a quid. I had been hoping to use it as an ordinary Freeview box and to play media from a stick or disk plugged into the USB socket. It won't let me get past the initial setup, demanding a working internet connection before it'll do anything else. Can this...

Audio description now harder to get at and complaints forms being stupidly complex by Brian Gaff
I managed to watch Horizon, but I'm assuming they have abandoned AD as nowhere on the page could I see any ref other than a ply link Also went to complaints and got the run around one question per page. After the third page and having to find the field on each I said a rude word and closed the browser. What was wrong with a list of departments a s subject field email address and a field...

Can one still get aerial rotators? by Brian Gaff
Ones that don't cost an arm and a leg and have a knob on the controller so one can tell where its pointed? The old Stolle ones were perfectly adaquate with the bearing, but seem to be no longer made. Brian -- ----- - This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from... The Sofa of Brian Gaff...

Lower frequency usage by Brian Gaff
How is it that we do not use the lower frequencies we used to use for tv, for tv again? Even one multiplex is better than none. OK so the aerials are big, and perhaps propogation is a bit of an issue at times, but much of band 1 seems to be empty now. Perhaps use it for fm instead? I've yet to see any kind of enthusiasm for moving over to dab en masse by fm stations. Brian --

freesat box unused input by Stephen[_7_]
Hello, I have a freesat box that has two inputs but there is only one cable going into the bedroom. Not wanting to climb ladders and fit new LNB and cable etc. just yet, what should do with the unused input? The manual says nothing. Do I leave it alone or should it be terminated? It is a Humax 1010S. I have one downstairs which has both inputs connected and it is fine. The one upstairs is not...

Crock.Pot by Dave W

iPlayer metadata AWOL again! by Johnny B Good[_2_]
Earlier this afternoon (26th) I noticed a total absence of metadata when trying to update the tv listings. I made do with grabbing the pids from the Beeb's TV scheduling web pages to grab the media files with get_iplayer. The downloaded files are simply given names made up by GIP but for me, this is only a minor problem since I copy and paste the names from the off-air recordings that I make...

Satellite & Terrestrial Calculators by Java Jive[_2_]
Some of you may have noticed that over recent months I've been making some gradual changes to my site. Although, many have been 'transparent' to the visitor, such as replacing common bits of coding by Server Side Includes, which merely make the site much easier to manage from my point of view, others, such as having fixed navigators at the top of each page, hopefully are better for the visitor...

Any Topfield experts out there? by Eddie King[_2_]
Hi all, my trusty Topfield 7700 seems on its way out. The story is as follows: a few months ago, it forgot its stored channels, I did a re-scan and arranged the channels in the order I required. This seemed to work until yesterday, when I tried to record a programm and found that the Toppy wouldn't accept any remote control commands (apart from off) so I couldn't access the

Meeja strikes again? by Woody[_5_]
Did anyone see the 10pm news on BBC1 tonight? An item about the 'armarda' that Donald Trump supposedly sent to 'keep an eye' on the works of North Korea. The 6th fleet was in Singapore and was despatched accordingly. Some bright sub-ed came up with the idea of generating a graphic map to show

Interactive tv by Brian Gaff
Many many years ago one of the much vaunted plus points of tv delivered over the internet was interactive programs. Whatever happened to that? We could all vote in the election or referenda weekly if we wanted to then. Also of course in much the same way as 'turns' on old fashioned talent shows were hooked off after a few minutes if they were dying, we could get rid of the worst programs...

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...
