It's more likely the wiring, with it not been soldered or crimped everywhere - usually.

Easy to test - put the magic eye directly on the back of the Sky box and see if it works from there.

It certainly won't - it's FAR too expensive - why would broadcasters massively increase their costs for no gain?.

One would hope so - there seems no reason for it not to be, it was a very strange failing of the older boxes.

I agree with the others, it sounds an expensive idea - if anyone does even offer such a service?. Can't you just buy them on CD?, or even just download MP3's off the net? - I signed up for a low cost...

So would I, but only because I've got better access to Sony, there's pretty well nothing to choose between them.

Sony are the number one brand in the trade, Pansonic are number two - it's been that...

No added width - the 25 inch will most probably have speakers either side - so is pretty well identical in size to a 32 inch LCD.

But the new set will be a LOT smaller - it will really look tiny.

A 32 inch LCD is only about the same size as a 25 inch (4:3) CRT, and has a similar height picture.

Sharp have had bad reliability problems (and ludicrous spares prices), their sales have plummeted - they are right down with Philips now, with well below 1% market share.

A 32 LCD/Plasma will look tiny after a 36 CRT, you can generally have quite a bit larger LCD/Plasma than a CRT, simply because they take up so little room.

I would suggest a 40 would probably be...

It's like the treble control on your stereo, turning it up increases the high frequencies (making it sharper), turning it down decreases the high frequencies (making it duller).

Hi Janet,

There's no concerns about that - quad and octo LNB's are designed to operate in that way, each output is effectively completely separate.

You seem to struggle understanding? - it's because Sky has a great many more channels, VM presumably can't support that number with their single feed?.

Nothing surprising about it really - by using VHF channels (which are no longer used in the UK) it gives you much more bandwidth to play with. Most TV's will accept both VHF and UHF, and certainly...

Don't VM provide just coaxial cable to the houses? - the reason Sky have greater capability is because each feed can be switched to one of four sets of TV channels.
