    Connecting to a VGA monitor input

    Derek, Syncing to 50Hz is not required , Maybe I need to make myself clearer. If your are using a rasberry pi or an android device they are perfectly capable of outputing 60Hz signals, so they can play on any vga monitor. If, however you are trying to connect a humax device, which outputs only...

    Connecting to a VGA monitor input

    Like you Ezra I too was very skeptical but I needed a solution ( a little android tv box feeding a pc monitor ) and so bought one off ebay and guess what it works. Biggest problem is finding a vga monitor that will sync to 50hz . Most computer monitors still won't go below 60hz. Anyway it worked...

    Recording whilst watching delayed playback

    Problem for me is that time delayed viewings are not planned they are usually as a result of a phone call or some other interuption, which results in me putting the thing into pause ( I know, i know why don't you hit record instead, old dog new tricks etc ) . Then just as I'm getting to the end...

    Recording whilst watching delayed playback

    Socrates, just read your post and yes, this happens to me. The thing is, never use delayed tv before a scheduled record. Easier said than done !!! the option above is a workaround , but It's just struck me when the box comes up asking yes or no. if you answer no the box will cancel the...

    Just bought a TP link nano

    http://www.tp-link.com.au/products/details/?model=TL-WR702N works a treat on my smart tv and the Hummy. As it's an ethernet router it is ideal if you can't get an Edimax usb wirelss dongle. Very easy to set up too !! I bought it mainly to use in hotels when I'm travelling, going to have to buy...

    Stream from iPhone to HDR

    Wild media server on a pc allows you to stream to the HDR but it was a bit of a phaff so I gave up on it. Might have a go again now there's been another couple of version releases. Don't know of anything for an iPhone but it is possible . My favourite at the moment is a rasberry pi running XBMC...

    Does HDR Fox T2 have commercial skip?

    I'm sure I bought it in 2004 but that's old age for you , now where did I leave my bus pass !!!!:frantic: Still prefer the remote even if it's only 7 years old, Think the transport controls are better

    Does HDR Fox T2 have commercial skip?

    I miss the back button as it worked on the 9200, bit of a fiddle on the T2, but that's a minor con . The T2 is a much more refined machine, you won't regret the upgrade. I store a lot of mp3's on mine , ok the 9200 offered that as well but normally crashed the machine. Networking is a major...

    Green Flecky lines

    You read many times on here and in fact I say it as well HDMI leads are all the same but........ a poorly made HDMI lead will cause little green flecks on 1080 in particular. Try another lead. I have a HDMI switch causes green flashing on 1080 clean on 720. Also could be a clocking error on your...

    Late arrivals at the Post Retune Ball

    Excellent rant there from LDW deserves a 7.465/10 , brightened up a sunday morning :cool: ps I agree with him. It's the re-tune for channels I never use that annoys me and should not be on freeview in the first place.

    TV loses channel signals....baffled or what

    that was sort of my intention, seems to be a tv issue so split the signal try to keep the humax out of the loop. Be far easier if they just kept the hummy on and used it as their main tuner. Can't understand why people don't do this , pause and rewind live tv is used all the time in our house

    TV loses channel signals....baffled or what

    the f type are far superior and is what i would use but it means putting f connectors on , which is a whole new ball game these are probably better and cheaper http://www.screwfix.com/p/labgear-19132r-s-2-way-metal-t-splitter/44534 or ftype...
