    • Basil, For Northern NSW you mean Prime TV which is a separate company from 7 network and will have to pay 7 more for the HD programs and also upgrade their studios in Canberra. As far as the ABC goes, who knows where they are. They give empty promises as demonstrated earlier this year. Alanh
    • Hey all.. Was at a mates place and saw his 2yo plasma TV, and I wondered why I hadn't considered one before. I need a new TV for my lounge, and don't want to pay for an LCD with poorer picture and features I don't need, or an OLED which is too expensive currently. So, I'm after a used late model 65"+ Plasma TV, and was wondering what I should look for, and what to avoid. Based in Melbourne if that helps.. Thanks.
    • Assume 6 identical signals including be in time coincident the signal power will increase by 6 times dB = 10 x log10(6)  = 7.8 dB Remember that splitters also have a loss of a few dB. You should also measure the BER at the output of the following amplifier to ensure it does not rise to unacceptable levels. If so either reduce the gain of that amplifier or reduce all the inputs levels. The limit to reducing levels is the noise level, so you should also measure the noise of each input separately and the amplifier output. Both noise and intermodulation distortion will increase the number of errors. By the way reflections regardless of whether in the air or a lack of cable 75 ohm termination at the end of the line will also cause the number of errors to rise. (Receivers have a 75 ohm input).   Alanh
    • IMO Mostly depend on your luck of finding a buyer nearbyish.  Its a 7 year old TV. Kogan will sell you a new one for $750. Maybe try $300 and see if you get any interest? In this situation FWIW, I tend to suggest find a friend or relative in need. Or perhaps give the Salvos a call? They'll come pick it up. Regards Peter Gillespie    
    • And the other half.... Now have to fit the 15" drivers. Have all ready installed the wiring before the tops went on. If my calculations are correct I can plug them in via a 90mm hole in the shelf in front of the centre Cat 12.
