Re: Better Film Sound

re John's PS: Yes, indeed, why not? I think that the sound system at the club is usually at a higher volume level level than I ever use at home, even with headphones, as we live in a quiet house and my wife has hyperacusis and very sensitive to bass, especially, so we never have TV or player volumes...

Re: Better Film Sound

Thanks for all comments so far which haven't mentioned the technical "fault" of sharp sound going above -6Db except for Dave saying 'depend on ears'. I'm glad of that, ina way, as I know that Dave doesn't judge films on poor quality TV speakers and he might get to see the film in question! Our club ...

Better Film Sound

In his article in FVM James Chalmers says - "Don't have music tracks running above -12Db ..." ie well below the -6Db he recommends for voice. Does this mean that music sounds louder than the same technical level of voice? It always seems to my ears that TV music is always louder than voice even, oft...

DVD storage

Are DVD folders a reliable way of storing DVDs? See https://www.dvdbinders.co.uk
Please don't tell me to put the films on another medium!

Re: Club Insurance

I see there has been no further chat about this subject but it has come round to that time of year again. The quote from Gallaghers this year is less than last year's but is for a policy called Tradesmen & Professionals. Seems odd as we are neither. Wouldn't invalidate our amateur status, would it? :)

Libec TH-650DV Tripod (Heiwa) Pan locked

We have had this tripod in use for several years. (Best one for its weight I've ever had the pleasure of using) Yesterday I took it out of the boot and found the head locked solid. I thought it doesn't have a locking screw for pan only a very small knurled knob that I had never touched and couldn't ...

Re: Voice recorders

Be careful plugging in to the church's sound system not to overload your camera. I found it hard to know whether the output was going to suit the mic or line input to the camera and would always try line first. If no option turn input level of camera down and bring it up gradually until you are gett...

Re: Adobe Premiee glitch

My input is worth very little but as a user of Prem.6.5 for the same reasons as yours, and having XP as the OS, but having the good fortune to have an experienced friend who sorts my problems I would enquire if it would be sensible to uninstall and reinstall Prem 6. When Nero played up (would only m...

Unlocking Serif Movie Plus

If owners of Serif Movie Plus have not already unlocked features and procedures is there any way to do it now that Serif doesn't support it any more?

Re: Projectors & Pacemakers

Yesterday, a fortnight after the man at Epson promised to get back to me, he did! Their recommendation is that the person with the pacemaker should keep 20cm. away and not be between the projector and any Wi-fi device that is working with it. So perhaps one should not operate it, I said. That's righ...

Projectors & Pacemakers

We are delighted with our new Epson EH-TW6700 projector but I have just spent 23 minutes on the phone to Epson, most of the time listening to promotions of printers, trying to find out what "vicinity" means in a warning about medical equipment, including pacemakers. The guy has just said "in the sam...
