Guessing if it's quietly tutting at you it's a Samsung TV - in which case it's caused by a dodgy capacitor or two on the power supply which is well documented,
Fortunately all it takes is 50p spent at Maplins and 5min replacing the capacitors and it's up and running like new.
Unfortunately I no longer have the justification for buying a new TV :(
One thing that I can never find referenced in the reviews is how much sound "leakage" (sorry not sure if there's a technical term) you get from these - I tend to watch tv on the laptop on the train on my commute, so my most important requirements are how much they drown out those around you, and how little sound can be heard by others - I'm trying to be responsible here! :)
I recently got some Panasonic RP-HC55's, which are noise cancelling - which are great for killing the rumble of the train, however that just makes the annoying conversation of the women gossiping behind me even more irritating! Especially when I'm not listening to music but watching video where there are commonly more quiter sections.
Any thoughts or suggestions on a reasonably priced solution that'll drown out the background noise without making any external noise?
I've been using Twonky as a DLNA controller on my HTC Desire and it works very nicely as my media box (HDX1000) works as a DLNA renderer and should also work with this.
It's nice to see standalone DLNA renderers, is anyone aware of an audio only one? I've been looking for one to play music in the kitchen, but haven't had any joy yet.
Personally, I just set my phone to manually connect to Orange and voila! I now have 4 out of 4 bars both at home and at work.
Now I just need a widget to let me swiftly switch between them from the front screen without needing to dig through the menus to allow net when I'm out and about and I'm all set...
The current movie screens use clockwise and anticlockwise polarisation rather than horizontal and vertical - therefore you don't lose the picture when you tilt your head or put the specs on backwards :)
I had some shutter glasses years ago which worked with the nvidia drivers to make any game (mostly) 3d - there was a fair bit ghosting then and that was using a crt at 100hz :(
They'll sometimes put a new code on the system at a stupid price to make sure no one sells it before it's released. They'll bring the price down to the proper price once it's finalised and ready for release.
I imagine this might be the rumoured Wii with DVD playback functionality I'd heard about or even just a new bundle...
