Reminds me of the warped city that Henry Flint drew for the Deadlock series...

Help! / Re: Digital TV
« on: 13 July, 2005, 10:44:01 pm »

you do still need an aerial to carry the signal into the box.

The difference between analogue and digital is that the picture is usually all or nothing on digital.

The box then decodes the digital signals carried in the broadcasts from the aerial, the box then carries the signal (usually through a Scart cable) to the TV itself.

On analogue TV the aerial plugs directly into the TV, but on a set-top box you can loop the analogue signal through the box and into the TV so you can still use analogue TV if you want to (for teletext for example)

On Digital TV the channels are broken up into multiplexes, so one multiplex carries BBC1, 2, 3, 4, News24 etc. another carries ITV, ITV2, C4 etc. so if you are missing one channel you'll probably lose all the other channels on the same multiplex.

This is why it's a good idea to get a reasonably good aerial anyway.

Hope that helps,

I can just see Abu Hamza in a spangly jacket doing a stand-up routine from Belmarsh...

Depressingly, the BNP have already leapt on the bandwagon - they make ambulance-chasers look like amateurs...

Not sure which I'd prefer, a Harlem Heroes Louis Meyer brain in a jar with rocket thrusters, an Inferno Louis Meyer in a transparent glass head on a robot body.

He'd be gutted (well figuratively) if all Justice Dept had left was the same model that they used for Bonnie Rickle...

I'm not as anti the art as some, but I really think this story should have been given over to a more established artist.

I would have loved to have seen MacNeill's take on this week.

just pretend to execute them by lethal injection, then convince them they have actually died, and the afterlife is the Big Brother house for eternity

I think that would be pretty soul-destroying...

I'm never surprised how low some of the rolling news channels can sink.

ITV have already rolled out the crosshair over britain graphic and gone overboard with pointless speculation and stupid questions to the Assistant Commissioner of the Met.

Sky are using their Skystrator, crap graphics of buses exploding and their 'Skycopter'.

The BBC is just as bad, they'll inevitably show anyone caught up in a tragedy watching the events unfold on News 24. They did it with Soham, they did it with the Tsunami and sure enough they did it today.

It's utterly tasteless that they piggyback their brand on people's misery.

It's not anything wrong with Cardiff, just an odd choice considering that they make a big deal of it being London winning the bid, not the other side of the country.

The journey time to Paris by train isn't that much more than the one from Cardiff to London.

If it's a London bid, wouldn't Wembley have made more sense?

Plus whenever there's a final or playoff in Cardiff, Paddington becomes a heaving mess and is a nightmare for anyone visiting their family in the West of England...

Sorry just having a flashback to when the geniuses at National Rail decided to have engineering works on a Cup Final Day...

The sailing is in Weymouth, apparently.

I heard that the football is going to be in Cardiff(!).

To be honest I'm in two minds about the whole thing, yeah it'd be great to have the East End regenerated, but it's tempered with the impression that it will go way over budget and council-tax payers will foot the bill for that.

Of course if they had Aeroball as an Olympic sport, that would be different...

Effects usually aren't final for trailers, there's all sorts of tweaking that can be done between now and the next 6 months before release...
