Hi Billy

Just out of interest, what does Dinky Doo mean? Is it some Scottish jargon I haven't caught on to yet? (smile.)

Peter, yeah we can get AD in Wishy. I don't think I really need a digital tv. I should be able to get AD from Virgin Media, I pay them enough.

Me thinks the great McClue will be back soon as, I'll let you kenn. Go to Scottie's webpage, & join his forum, some good old stuff there: www.scottie-mcclue.com,

Billy my friend.
Do you have a digital TV? Do you subscribe to digital TV in Wishy? You need both, Billy. Dinky doo. Hope you hear from Scot McClue shortly. If you do, let me know what air wave he's travelling? Get a digital TV, Billy. Corrie
is audio described on Virgin media Digital 853 most nights at 7:30.

Jackie, I just called VM. What a carry on. They just haven't got a clue.
The guy was going on about sub titles, and I was pulling out the little hair I have left. I finally got him to understand me, and he put me through the
the fault line.
The girl wasn't too much help either.
She told me which tv channels were AD supported by VM. Which are only 851 to
855, I thanked her, and went through each one of those channels. They all
had the AD banner, but no audio discription was apparent. Surely at least
one of them were broadcasting the AD at that moment. I'm even more confused
after talking with VM.
Going to lay down in a darkened room now,

Dinky Doo

Hi Billy

It might be that Virgin Media do support Audio Description, but that
your box isn't yet set up to receive it.  Maybe someone on the list using
Virgin Media could clarify this. I'm sure that I heard they don't support
it, and that it is only Sky or on certain models of Freeview box.  Total
nonsense! good grief!!

Hi Jackie, In that case the RNIB AD team are talking
nonsense. It was from them I got the Instructions to set-up AD on my TV, and
the Instructions were for Virgin Media.
No way am I calling VM, it would cost a small fortune.
It seems every call now is passed to the techy team at a
considerable cost, no thanks,

Hi Billy

You would need to ask Virgin Media about providing
this in some way, but I thought it wasn't available through them. This may
have changed though, so don't take my word for that.

Your alternative might be to purchase a box that
carries it, but I personally don't understand all this crap about not having AD on all appliances that carry Freeview or satellite channels. Let's just
have it and stop the nonsense I say. (smiles.)

Jackie, as you know I have Virgin Media
cable tv. I had AD setup on my portable television in my bedroom, but it
doesn't work for me.
I have tried to contact the RNIB AD
helpline, but keep getting an answering machine, where I left many messages
asking for them to get in contact with me, but as per usual, not heard
anything.

Just to say, that everything is not all it
seems with AD,

Dinky Doo
