HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Epson HX-20
« on: March 08, 2009, 09:52:50 PM »
I have acquired an Epson HX-20.
I have no idea what to do with it, it does work (as I had it displaying the built in BASIC) but other than that, there's nothing I can do with it.
It has no leads, has some sort of memory expansion on it, but no PSU (so impossible to charge once the battery has ran out)

Does the museum want it? it's free, so I'll donate it if you want it Andy.

OFF TOPIC / Sky Box problems :(
« on: February 23, 2009, 11:50:11 PM »
I'm hoping someone here might know something about these (other than me) hence why I'm asking here (in the off-topic section, of course)

Every evening this week & last week, I've had massive problems with my Sky box, all the channels go off with either 'No satellite signal is being broadcast' or 'There is a technical fault with this channel' ..... and a reboot of the box (unplug mains, leave for 30 seconds, plug back in) solves it for about an hour or two .... then it does it again, sometimes the box crashes completely and I cannot change channel at all, or sometimes the picture freezes, cannot operate the box at all, won't turn on or off !!!!!

Anybody got any ideas on this one? ..... is it the box? or something else? (such as transmission problems)

The box is quite an old one .... it's a Panasonic one and I've had it since 1999-2000 (ish) .... I've been told it's the first model Sky Digital receiver that Panasonic did.

Anyone got any ideas?
The ClassicAmiga site seems to be gone, all I get is this error message:



Looks like they forgot to pay their hosting!

It produces a superb picture for my games. be it retro or modern.
