    Need some help please with video format, codecs AVI/MPEG etc

    H264 is pretty much the standard for camera nvrs at the cheaper end. I know the police have lots of issues with not being able to view footage from some of these. Unless you could flash the cameras software your probably stuck with it.

    Just chatting to someone who doesn't know you and won't judge you can be a lifesaver. Sometimes just someone who will listen to you too. I'm happy to chat or listen if anyone needs it, as I'm sure many of our members on here are. It's OK not to be OK. Said often but men especially struggle to...

    Electric Shock - Never should happen, or occupational hazard?

    At least no one has said "Thats never happened to me" ! We all know that we should never work live, but we still occasionally do it, out of wanting to get the job done, sheer laziness, or plain old CBA ! My question is when its live and you know its live and you get a belt why does it never...

    Electric test fail.

    Unfortunately all the schemes appear to be just in this buisness to make money out of us. I'm a Napit member and it works for me. But would I use their coding book as definitive guide. No. Both publications are guides. If you have the relevant experience then you understand what to code what...

    Monitoring for maximum demand

    Ive used this in the past. Simple to setup and comes with software for you to get the data off. That's the company I hired from, they do deliver, but you may find a local supplier you can collect from. You don't need an energy monitor you need an energy data logger. So what your customer has...

    BT Open Reach - rant time

    Yep down to whichever service provider they choose to supply the service. Depending on the area you might get a new analogue line installed but its very doubtful. Will probably end up with a fibre connection and router to provider VOIP. Even if no broadband is being supplied. If they already...

    Brain Fog

    I seem to remember being told at either a tech talk or something similar that there was a maximum rating for a fixed connected appliance that could be plugged in on a 13a socket. I know a 13a socket is 3kw but in my mind I've got 2.2kw as a maximum. I've tried looking in the BBB and OSG buy...

    Better attended than last year, but a few large brands missing. I think many are of the opinion that there are better deals and freebies to be had elsewhere ! So why take a morning off. I use it as my yearly pen restock as I'm forever leaving them places 🤣
