I dont get to watch TV regularly but I compensate by checking the programmes for the coming week and recording them, not many...mainly documentaries and the odd film. Generally it works well, but recently Ive sat down to watch a programme and have found that the digital picture freezes intermittently, or it becomes pixilated and the sound becomes a staccato patois complete with bleeps and squeaks from the speakers. Obviously the picture and sound have lost sync for that second or two which makes for very frustrating viewing. This evening I sat down to watch the Bomber Command documentary made by Ewan MacGregor and his pilot brother. ( They made one on the Spitfireand the Battle of Britain last year which was in the summer and a perfect piece of telly. Not this time though - and its not their fault. I had to ditch the idea and Ill catch it on i-player later). Quite simply the dodgy signal got on my tits and the blood pressure began to rise. Nothing to do with the recorder, Sunray Domestic complained that the same thing was happening the other night watching a favoured programme on ITV. It seems to be the same other digital channels too. Ive always had my doubts about digital tv, but it would seem to be getting worse. My own theory for the current problem is atmospherics, seems to cock-up in cold weather. I had noticed it last year during that big freeze when we had clear skies and sub zero temperatures. So, techno-Arrsers, whats the score ? Atmospherics ? Or have were been sold a dummy by Nu-labour back in those dark days ? They flogged the gold, so did they think to make a packet on flogging the FM wave band too ? Snottogrammme to the proper ministry is going to be composed.....erm what Ministry though ? Is there a Ministry of Digital Fuckwittery ? Is SOinC on the advisory panel. We need to know.
