    Indoor Digital Aerial

    I am going to get my son a TV for his bedroom for xmas and was going to buy an Indoor Aerial. I have checked for the local digital Transmitters but it doesn't look like any are very close, Crystal Palace seems to be closest. Does anyone use an Indoor Aerial at all and if so do you get any...
  3. Bandwidth consumption to listen to Blues Player commentary?

    A quick question which a techy person may be able to answer. Does anyone have a rough idea of how much bandwidth would be consumed by listening to a full Blues Player match commentary? We've just moved to a remote-ish part of Ireland, and are waiting for fixed line broadband to be installed...

    Finding Out

    The first leg against the Os fell on what would have been my late daughter's 20th birthday and the second a day before the anniversary of her passing so I went to to neither game. Not being a very good watcher of the TV I decided to avoid the game until I knew it was full time. Even then I did...

    Sky box wifi adaptor advice

    Which one would people recommend? With antenna http://bit.ly/Wb3kYX Or without http://bit.ly/TO3t0g Also what do F3 and M3 mean? Ideally I would go without antenna, but if that would equal gash all signal I would grin and beat it!

    McNabb traded to Redskins

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/redskinsinsider/donovan-mcnabb/mcnabb-traded-to-redskins.html#more Holy ****. As a Redskins fan, I'm delighted with this move and I'm also going to say that Rush Limbaugh was obviously dead wrong in his criticism of the new signal caller in DC.

    Stranger Things Have Happend

    Just a thought, with Adam Barretts sending off and now one match ban I wonder if this could signal the change we need. Don't get me wrong our captains passion and fight is excellent but lets be honest we havent kept many clean sheets this season with him in the side have we. Perhaps this...

    Sky Upgrade Help

    I currently have a very old Sky box. I have been toying with the idea of upgrading to either Sky + or Sky HD. The problem I have is that I have a non standard installation. I have a distribution box in the loft that sends the signal to pretty much every room in the house. The cabling from the...
  17. My take on Revell and Betsy and other things

    I know there are lots of other threads on this but here is my take on it. Revell: I am inclined to believe that he did possibly want out and may have had little future at the club. Bear in mind he wasn't in the starting eleven until very recently and these games may well have been last chance...

    Arsenal's Better Half

    Ask a new convert to Arsenal what the club's greatest weakness is and you'll get a variety of answers. You might hear that the players are too young, or that there's no cover in defensive midfield, or even that Nicklas Bendtner is a lumbering oaf incapable of even the simplest of motor skills...

    England Not That Good

    Never let it be said that England's footballers are selfish divas, unwilling to lift a finger to help others. In Amsterdam, in front of 50,000 witnesses, these much-maligned millionaires generously donated two goals to their Dutch opponents, an act of charity that they'd prefer went entirely...
