Are Humax et al paying import duties at PVR rates or are they still fitting hard disks in the EU? If they are not doing this then are their PVRs more expensive because of this tax? If they are then...

I pay money to Sky and as a result get the H2 service with PVR functionality, how is that not "buying" it.



Going directly to the supplier may be the best method. However your legal rights as a...

So you give the money to H2 for the service rather than Sky? How do you manage that? I only ever had an account with Sky - actually I do still for a few more days and I get H2 without giving them any...

People buy the channel from Sky so if there is something wrong they should contact Sky. If you buy a can of Heinz baked beans from Tesco and it is off you complain to Tesco not Heinz.

I agree with this. Providing the transport mechanism and providing the source (programmes) should not be the same company. Note this also applies to Virgin Media.

A very small minority look no better when viewed with the correct size TV for the viewing distance, most of the time blu-ray is quite a lot better though nowhere near the improvement from VHS to DVD.

It depends on the frame rate, if it's 1080p50 then it is clearly superior but if it's 1080p25 then that does not deal with fast movement so well.

Sky give them money each month and the only way to view it is for the viewer to give Sky money for a much larger package, effectively ITV4 HD etc are Sky products.

That's still Sky paying ITV not to have ITV4 HD free to view. Obviously it has the financial benefit for ITV or they wouldn't do it as it will cut their viewing figures to some extent so they have to...

I have that but after I've "forced" 4:3 all I do is select TV then back to HDMI and all is fine. If all you have is TV then just select analogue then back again. At least that works on mine.

I think the main use would have been for playing DVDs. Also a lot of broadcast material was 14:9 and so you could zoom in a little bit for smaller bars without losing anything. (apart from what was...

Some boxes (one example Humax and Panasonic) can have their remote operation selectable from a list to prevent such clashes, if you give your exact model somebody may be able to help.

Does it work okay when cooler or is it just that the start of the problem coincided with the hot humid spell? If the latter then it probably is just that - coincidence.

You can get remote record for Freesat as a mobile phone app (Android and IOS). I haven't used it myself yet so can't say how good it is.

A bit off topic but how does the PQ between Sky and Freesat compare? (A bit of a cheeky question but I'll soon be having Freesat and some people entering this specific thread may know).
