Hi Everyone

I was told by Currys that they were no longer stocking the Logik Freeview 
boxes.  I was given to understand that RNIB was the only place to get them.

But the Sony Bravia TVs, and the Panasonic LCD TVs (I do not know the model 
numbers) can receive audio description.

I have a Sony Bravia LCD TV which receives Audio Description.  The problem is 
that it is buried deep within the menu structure, and I have not found a way of 
turning it off and on without help.

I know I have said this before, but ITV3 audio description is terrible here.  
The sound breaks up when the AD person is speaking.  I have had the aerial 
and spoken to someone on the Freeview helpline, but everything seems fine.  It 
is not a problem with the television, as the Logik box breaks up as well, and 
Nebula box connected to my PC breaks up, although not quite as badly.  Does 
anyone else have this problem and, if so, have they found a cure?
