Talking Pictures TV
Wednesday 18 April 2018 10:36AM

I assume that Talking Pictures TV is now generally available to everybody using Freeview?.
I have a Panasonic DVD recorder ( actual DVD burning, not hard drive)
It can only receive and record standard definition Freeview signals, with Talking Pictures clearly showing on the EPG., and I recorded a part of a film to a DVD-R.

Talking Pictures TV

As I mentioned just now, Talking Pictures should now be available to everyone after a retune.
The terrestrial transmitter I use is Stockland Hill, Devon.
What annoys me most of all is the lack of listings for the channe!. "What's On TV" & "TV Choice" will not list it because ( they say) it doesn't have the viewer numbers to list it!
Obviously Radio Times thinks it has, as it the only listings magazine which does think that two million viewers is enough!

MikeB: My Panasonic DVD recorder has an SD only function, and an SD EPG.
Talking Pictures TV is watchable and I have recorded to DVD films from Talking Pictures from the Stockland Hill Transmitter. It is no longer a requirement to have an HD TV., though it's hard to find a TV without that now.

Channel 4 abandons Freesat HD in TWO DAYS
Wednesday 23 May 2018 2:24PM

Channel 4 HD has merely been removed from the Freesat Programme guide.
It is still free to air on satellite.
Merely go to your other, or "non-Freesat" channels to watch it!
Unfortunately, some of the makers of Freesat receivers don't like you storing "other" channels, particularly adult ones, so make it difficult. A new Humax box I had was one case in point, so I went back to using my Foxsat HDR, to store and record channels not on the Freesat EPG.
