Hi Briantist,

Are you aware that the ukfreetv web page for checking on BBC engineering works has not been working for a few days?

All one gets is the error message:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function facebooklike() in /home/admintv/public_html/reception_transmitters_index.php on line 40

I'm an American and I love some of the shows on British television. However, there's no way for me to watch them on television (because I live in America). Is there a website I can visit to buy individual episodes of shows like we can here in America?

Steven Tye: Its assumed that you must be referring to a Sky HD box? as otherwise you would see the card in the lower slot in the middle of the front, if it is an HD box then the card should be located in a pull down flap on the lower right hand side of the fascia.

By the way water can still be trapped under the capacitors in the power supply, and so you should really take the casing off, sit the box on its end, and then blow mildly warm air from a hair dryer on its medium setting over the power unit area of the PCB for at least 5 minutes or so.

Do you know what a "Proxy Server" is? If not, google it.

I have heard that all BBCi stuff, as well as live TV, is available via a UK proxy!

Stephen P: Which, I imagine, is an illegal workaround.

Stephen P: Its basically a system whereby a person residing within the UK appears in the electronic sense to any website they contact that they are located elsewhere, for example Germany.

The fact of them "appearing" as being outwith the UK allows them to download material that would be blocked if a UK IP address was detected by any site they might wish to contact.

Why am I still intermitently getting a "splintered" picture with squeaks on the sound with ITV3 from Hannington?
This used to happen while the old sytem was running but we were told that this would stop when digital was turned up to full power.

Viv Gunton: What is the signal strength and quality on the SDN mux (ITV3) compared with that on say BBC1 or ITV1? It is possible that interference which only affects SDN is present, or the aerial position is such that it receives that mux less well than the others. The transmitter power at Hannington was not raised significantly at switchover, it was mainly viewers towards Guildford who would have noticed an improvement following the removal of restrictions in that direction.
