      *sneaks in during lunch*

      *waves goodbye to Ceefax*

      We switched over to digital at the end of last year, can't say it made a blind bit of difference since we already had a digital tv with freeview built in

      On the subject of new TVs though - we got a smart TV in the lounge, and seriously if you get the chance I recommend them very highly!! You plug the internet cable in the back, and you can get on to facebook, youtube, BBC iplayer, Love Film - there's loads, you download apps like on a smart phone. No internet browser YET (so no GW ) but it's only a matter of time!

        I shall resist that to my last breath! No, I just need a simple little tv in there (although I must admit having Freeview and DVD player built in is a major plus ), all my other tvs have enough bells and whistles to keep me happy Plus, this new one is only costing £99

            In the US they switched over several years ago (Bush was President). However, there is a device that cost about $75 to $100 that you can put on the back of your analog signal that could convert the signal back. The government gave out millions of coupons to people so you could get one free device.
            The reason behind this was the networks and most stations had to broadcast in both digital and analog and it was costing them money. They wanted to switch over even sooner but the government said no, they had to do it this way. The reason behind it all was merely "progress" but it also created a nice industry called the cable/satelite tv industry. Now we all have to pay for cable these days! Sneaky, very blatant, but legal!

            BTW - digital broadcasts with a higher resolution then analog!

              You make cable/satellite sound like a bad thing I don't know what it was like in the US, but before we had that there were just five channels to choose from, and I wood never have got to see half the shows I've loved over the last 10 years - Sanctuary included

                  Jumble- on amazon uk, you can get a digital converter box for your analogue tv for < 30GBP. You can get one of those instead of a new tv, unless of course, you want a new shiny, which i totally understand.

                    Thanks for the info, but I really think converting a 20yr old tv woodn't work very well, and besides that it's a huge, heavy thing - rather get rid and bring in a new shiny

                        Being original is difficult when you can't stop quoting your favorite tv show, For crying out loud!

                            It's excellent, as long as you don't mind all the explicit sex and violence If that isn't a dealbreaker for you, then it's utterly fantastic.

                            And the books are wonderful

                            Spoilered just in case, as it's currently airing...

                            Spoiler:
                            Yes, I'm sure I saw somewhere that they're not sticking to one book one series (particularly given how slowly GRRM is churning them out now) but are trying to select the bits that go in each episode and series according to what will construct the best TV narrative (obviously within reason, as there's still an order!). I'm finding I'm enjoying it best if I don't try to match it back to the books too closely, because they're definitely being less faithful this season than last. That's not something that ever bothers me too much, tbh, though, and I think that some of the scenes we've had added in this season so far have been a good translation of what is implicit in the books but works better visually on screen. You'll know the scenes I mean


                            I am looking forward to AT6. I am pretty sure I am going to be able to get the time off to come. Even if it means flying in on thursday and leaving monday.
                            Yay! Really hope you can!

                            *sniff* So sad. Even though we went digital months and months ago, seeing the farewell to Ceefax things today have reminded me how I loved it as a kid. Hours playing the quizzes when I was small (and when we didn't have it on our TV so I could only play it when we visited my grandparents), hours reading the soap catch-ups and watching cricket scorecards as a teenager (yes, I'm aware that is an odd combination of favourite pages...)

                            Ohhh! WANT. But my TV is still relatively new so must be strong and resist. At least for a bit...

                              Wood that be Sean Bean in those explicit sex scenes?

                              So, with a 'smart' tv, can you watch live tv, recorded tv or dvd whilst also surfing the net, chatting on FB, Twitter and GW?
