Now I'm confused about why you think I'm confused. On both 28 and 58, BBC4 is listed separately within the same group, within both a COM group and a PSB group. How does the tuner decide whether to...

If anything, soaps ought to be banned from the Sunday schedules. They seem to consist almost entirely of murder, rape, violence, screaming and shouting.

They nearly always go wrong when I use them, so I have to stand for ages until an assistant responds to the flashing red light.

He's probably just making sure he's free to go to the pub instead of being asked to babysit.

So why are both Belmost and Waltham transmitting the same channels on both a COM and a PSB? How does the tuner know which one to save and which one...

I would have thought that the obvious answer is that the Humax box is only specified to access iPlayer and YouTube. I can't even see any other catch-up services on mine.

Why on earth would anybody want a video as a desktop background? Apart from being just about the most pointless thing ever, it would be a massive resource hog.

Yes, I did mean "due" :D

It took me several attempts before I realised that when pressing the channel "down" arrow, it has to be on the box rather than the remote control :D

I haven't watched it yet, but I hope Bobby Ball isn't in it again. I dislike both him and the character he plays to the extent that I'll make a point of missing any episode he appears in.

They're not robbing me because I never buy it. In fact I rarely buy any fizzy drinks, but I did used to like Budgen's own-brand, sugar-free American cola. It had far more of an adult taste than many...

BBC4 HD - tuner says strong signal, TV says weak signal

Can anybody make sense of this conundrum?

I have a choice of either Belmont or Waltham. Manual tuning on Belmont Channel 28 shows signal 68%, quality 100%. Manual tuning on Waltham shows signal...

I find armpit hair on women such a massive turn-off that it seems only obvious that women feel the same way about it on men. Let's face it, it really is quite disgusting and serves no purpose at all.
