emergency call button device for blind person by Bill Wright[_3_]
My friend has had a stroke and it has left her almost completely blind. Cognitively she seems unaffected. We need some sort of gadget that she can have on a lanyard to call for someone if she has an emergency. Presumably this will use the cellphone network. It won't be any good if it will only...

DTT Radio (Radio 4) by Chris Holmes
Hi All, We are having trouble getting to Mornington Crescent via our Youview box. I had a quick google which seemed to suggest that R4 was the same mux as BBC1 and BBC2. Is this the case? In which case perhaps we need to do a retune (maybe with the plug pulled out for some of the time)?

Programmes not recorded by Jeff Layman[_2_]
Looks like the curse of "Edge of Tomorrow" has struck again (see my post of 14/12)! Last night we ere watching it on the Panasonic PVR. Everything seemed fine - no problem with playback. But in the background while we were watching the film things were not fine. The PVR didn't record the last...

OT: Arithmetic question by NY
This little arithmetic question is doing the rounds on Facebook. What is the answer to 6 / 2(1+2) where "/" was written as the division sign in the original question. I think there are two possible answers: one if you apply a rule strictly and the other if you opt for gut instinct.

Failed Public Eye link again by Jeff Layman[_2_]
After posting about this about 3 weeks ago, who forgot that a new series started yesterday and didn't start a new series link? I missed the first episode of the final series. So it looks like TPTV don't read emails sent to them, or don't appear to pay any attention if they do. :-( --

Several of the early facilities are now inaccessible to my 'smart' TV. I updated the software a few days ago but still cannot stream from ITV or 4, or I think from My5. I can get iplayer and Netflix but the loss of he others is irritating. Has anyone found a way round this? -- Ubuntu 18.04,...

Weird subtitle problem on Drama by The Other John[_3_]
We were watching Brokenwood Mysteries on Drama last night. It's a New Zealand detective series a bit like Midsummer Murders. The NZ accents are a bit thick and I'm a bit deaf so I had the subtitles on. For the first few parts they were a sentence late so during an ad break I changed channels...

TOT Nativity play by Bill Wright[_3_]
INFANT SCHOOL CHRISTMAS MEMORY It was the Nativity play. Parents and grandparents filled the hall. I was one of the Three Kings. I had to wear a hood that was almost all-enveloping. We Three Kings had to kneel down in worship before the Baby Jesus. I went into a reverie. The story moved on, but...

Edge of Tomorrow - non-existent programme recording clash by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I just tried to set up recording of the film "Edge of Tomorrow" on Ch5 at 2100 tonight. My Panasonic PVR reports an overlapping programme clash, and asked me to resolve it. But I have only two programmes set to record tonight, and they end before 2100. When I asked it to show the problem...

Must be OT - Ch 5 double recording by PeterC
Sorry about posting TV stuff. Every time I set Ch. 5 to record a film it also sets the repeat or first showing of it. It's the only channel to do so. Damned nuisance, as it sometimes clashes with another scheduled programme. Sometimes I have to remove the film and then remember to re-set it later,...

small TV's with built in clock by [email protected]
Hi Does anybody know if they still make smallish flatscreen TV's with a clock display permanently on the front. If so, where can they be purchased from. I am looking for a 20-32inch maximum screen size. When I got rid of the TV/Video combo (very old 12" Amstrad TVR-2) I found I actually miss not...
