    • Harry, Has channel 7 ever been good? Have you changed anything? A cable which has a faulty connection or who's far end is not connected will cause standing waves. These cause the signal to increase in one location along the cable and reduce in others. The location depends on the frequency which could explain why channel 7 but also corrosion on one of the elements in the antenna as well. Buying an entry level meter will not show you much more than you know now. The professional meters will tell you a lot more about delayed signals. You do not have the expertise to separate the reflected causes of errors from the noise and interference readings. Professional meters cost thousands. Much more than the highly directional antenna I recommended to you and some new cable. Alanh
    • When did this problem start? The suburb is well established. The antennas in Edgewater are not much different to most areas of Perth, also some have masthead amplifiers. Poor connections on coax cables also cause reflections which will cause the signal to increase and decrease at different points along the cable. The location moves depends on the frequency. It is called standing waves. This would also explain why only channel 6. Corrosion on particular elements on the antenna will also cause channel specific problems. Compare the cost of a meter which does not have the functions of a professional meter they cost thousands for a one off fix to getting an installer who has a professional meter and the expertise to interpret the results. An installer could try a 10 element band 3 antenna which is highly directional which is why it is more sensitive and it costs much less that the entry level meter. Remember the Olympics are on next week.   Alanh  
    • Port Call - Movie AND disc review   This is an effort by Philip Yung, and stars a rather different looking Aaron Kwok, who even got thinner, dyed his hair to complete the look. Very different from the slick cops seen in the recent cop shows. No Mainland money in this one.  He investigates a murder of a young prostitute, played by a newcomer Jessie Li.   Whilst I commend the acting efforts of everyone, in particular Micheal Ning, who plays the murderer that confesses to the crime, I can't understand the plot or follow the story. It isn't the gore, or even the sex scenes, I don't find them particularly distasteful or anything like that, it's just that I don't get the plot   It's a talkie, so there's minimal surround use. The dialogue is clear, the picture quality is excellent, but it's no demo disc..   Can't wrap my head around this ... even though it was well received at the Golden Horse Awards 2015.    Watch it for yourself and decide.
