"Hook the latter up to a spare Sky dish feed and you’ll get un-curated Freesat channels from Astra 19.2E."
You mean 28.2E.
"Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire."
...if you count Saturday evening when it would only load random parts of pages for quite a while. Eventually I did get the page I wanted to load and found the webform didn't work in Chrome.
Has Channel M not closed down?
When the fuck did we move to the US?
Time to buy a new television.
It is an opt-in service. And has no chat facility.
The tuner in a Sky box only supports a limited number of transmission parameters, controlled by Sky. Despite having an "other channels" function, it is not as open as a FTA satellite box.
...is it not healthy for there to be a competitor to Murdoch?
This article reads as an anti-BBC rant, when in fact it is a project being undertaken by 7 companies, and is unworthy of The Register IMO.
"State owned but advertising funded Channel 4 said it was "delighted" to be bringing its content to the channel, but we note that that delight doesn't extend to running its other offerings, including Film 4, E4 and More 4, on Freeview."
Can't blame them for that, there isn't the capacity on Freeview for more HD, largely because OFCOM wants to sell off part of the spectrum after analogue switch off.
Why, however, a public service broadcaster such as C4 is excluding it's channels from Freesat is a pertinent question to ask.
Blow to accurate journalism
Correct Richard, there is no possibility that Film 4 could have been on Freeview so it being described as "a blow" is nonsensical.
The question that should be posed is why as public service broadcaster, Channel 4 has chosen not to make it's 4HD service available on Freesat.
O2 strange thing
A message sent from a friend's O2 phone to my O2 phone reached mine, apparently from a completely different number on Saturday evening. Replied to the number it claimed to come from and they'd no idea who I was, and that number isn't in either of our contacts list.
Ovi does not have the content Widsets did.
I liked Widsets. Was seriously pissed off that it had simply been deleted with no warning whatsoever.
I'll remember the contempt that Nokia has shown me.
Looks like the N78 but with proper buttons. The N78 I have is a decent enough phone but the designer was clearly just having a laugh with the keypad.
"Freeview channels displayed correctly, but the signal from our Sky+ box was initially displayed at its standard 576p resolution, which left it with big black borders on either side of the image. We were able to correct this easily enough by using the ‘4:3 Stretch’ option within the on-screen menu. "
Actually it sounds very much like it was correct in the first place.
