Happy Nude Year to everyone!! Just got a Leadtek Winfast TV2000 TV (and vid cap) card!! Brilliant value for 40 squids. Only problem is, on all five TV channels, I have a horrible wavy wibbling down the screen. Sometimes BBC2 and ITV are OK, but it doesn't last long. The wibbling varies in speed - sometimes it's so slow I can hardly see it. It is a problem with the TV aerial (on the roof - although I'm not even sure the wire that goes up there is actuall connected!!)?? The main TV is on cable and in a different room, so I can't try it out; a B/W portable shows no wibbling. Any clues? thanks in advance guys and gals! Markyxx
If you want a decent indoor aerial, Dixon's do one, I got two for the kids TV'S, problem is there's no makers name on them, just the name of the aerial,'One for all'. They are powered from the mains supply and they are good.
Sorry forgot to mention price, about £19 each when I bought them, but a lot cheaper than having someone climb on a roof. They do two types powered and unpowered, if you do buy one don't buy the unpowered one unless your reception is brilliant, hope it helps.
Well, I know it was probably meant as a joke, but - blow me down! - the coathangar worked!! Found an old bit of coax, stuffed the coathanger down the end, and bingo: an almost perfect pic!! Have to shift it around a bit for different channels if I want it spot on, but bloody hell it's good!! Cheers dfghjkl (if that's your real name!)! Markyxxx
Seriously - the coathanger gives a brilliant pic, although, like I say, I need to shift it slightly for getting the absolutest best pic from one or two of the channels. Just did a capture and emailed a 5 sec clip to a mate who's into these things and he was amazed at the quality! Mxx
