Re: LBC via Freeview 732 has stopped working

Hi JGD. Yes, thanks. It turned out that the frequency move was temporary, so moved back to the old ones bringing a couple of problems with it which LBC "were aware of". About a week after it was back on the original channels, the sound magically reappeared but it still recorded only silence. It's be...

Re: Girton Road car park - introduction of parking charges

The intention used to be "free to serve the High Street" so two hours free does seem to align to that. As it's likely true that many all-dayers would avoid the charge if they could park on a nearby street, why can't there be offered (or offered also) a daily charge or weekly charge that isn't eye-wa...

Re: Sydenham Post Office to close for refurbishment

Thanks KEVD. Good news and thankfully it's still there. FWIW I don't recall many times in the past when more than three counters were manned. I suppose the question now is how many of the new three counters will be manned at busy times. I'd agree that it'd be nice if the self service machines weren'...

Re: Urgent warning: plant thieves in the area

Most who forage elsewhere where plants are not protected that I know are fully aware that whole plants are never taken, only clippings or perennial fruits that some plants/bushes produce. Removing whole domestic plants from private gardens ostensibly for study sounds more like theft to me and hopefu...

Re: Laptop disposal

You're more decisive than I. I have a small pile of crashed hard drives from over the years that I'm still deciding what to do with! Help please on one question: If a hard drive crashes so won't load, how do you load it to be able to wipe it? Some computer shops say they can, although arguably in th...

Hi. Thanks for checking Stuart. Just to let you know that the padlock has come back I see now that I've logged in afresh for today. I clear cookies every day, so yesterday would have been a fresh login also, if that means anything. You asked which browser: I using Firefox Quantum 65.0.1 on my PC whe...

Per subject title. Can't say it bothers me especially (unless I ought to be bothered?) but if https thought preferable, why not any more?

Re: LBC via Freeview 732 has stopped working

Ah, I see it's moved frequency, per: https://www.a516digital.com/2019/01/freeview-retune-for-lbc-and-classic-fm.html LBC is now 792 , and Classic FM is now 790. Only problem with that is that my retune on Friday (which I did on spec) did find 790 and 792 with no problem, but both still show as "Off ...

LBC via Freeview 732 has stopped working

Has anyone else found they can't get any sound from Freeview LBC Ch.732 even though it appears to be "On air"? Re-tuning finds the channel as normal but I still have no sound even though all other channels work perfectly well. On my DAB radio and one via FM it is still OK, just seems to have no soun...

Hi Tony.o and welcome. I'd assume the deed holder's name or business can be obtained from the Land Registry complete with an address for official correspondence.

Re: Second Sydenham Town Forum Meeting

It's a bit early for agenda items, but I seem to think that Town Kids used to be more active. It was mention of the possible regular coffee event being proposed by the Ignition, which prompted me to see if it had been duplicated in the Town Kids forum. One suggestion before the meeting is to copy th...

Re: Recommendation for fence repair company

I'd suggest asking at Wickes as they'll have all the gubbins so just need a fitter recommendation. There's one on Catford Hill: https://www.wickes.co.uk/kitchen/showroom and another near Anerley Station. (Other DIY sheds are available.) Or more locally, the garden centre behind Forest Hill station o...

Re: Book Share for Sydenham?

Wasn't something like a book box stand mooted for Mayo Park a while back? That would have needed a physical shed or stand though. What are you thinking would house books on the station? I assume it'd need Rail permission and maybe a watchman in case vandals decided to throw books onto the track (H&S...
