Same procedure as every year.

Pity the retards interrupted my viewing of it but at least I have the recording. :Y

Just watching a bit of CNN. It's worse than awful.

Four hours of that would send you to Gotham's insane asylum.

Hopefully I will have sorted out the screen grabbing by NYE 2019 :D

(Damned E2 receivers - I want my lovely old TM5402 back!) :D (And yes before anyone comments it will be going to Rusty if I decide I cant fix it!)
You can perfectly make screen grabs with E2 receivers, f.e. via webif.

Yeah - but I need to sort the networking out - the damn thing wont connect to the wifi.

I did get to see a bit of Rio at 0200 on the BBC as Euronews seems to have disappeared from Freesat.

And its been wonderful having access to Reuters for the first time - well recommended to any Chasers who havent ever set a dish up for 22W. The clean feeds are well worth the effort of setting it up. Ive got an lnb hanging off a battered old 80cm aimed at 30W for 22W
I have a spare 90cm,assumed it would need a very large dish,will give it a go,always fancied 22W,just for the Reuter’s feed too.

I saw a bit of Rio on France 24 HD and realized afterwards I should have tuned to a Brazillian channel and watched the whole thing. Obviously I was falling asleep after a good days chasing. Rio is usually a good show.

Apparently the Dinner For One premier on Sky Arts wasnt quite as much of a first as we thought.....

Last year it got shown on Estuary TV (who??!!) in Grimsby. Now defunct - they threw the towel in mid 2018 when the money ran out and sold out to the dreadful Thats TV operation.

When is a UK TV premiere not a premiere? How PR quickly changes history - a516digital

However the Estuary TV viewing figures must have been miniscule & its certainly the first time its been shown on a nationally available channel.
