Just a NULL day, with Frankenstein
We woke up to a lovely sunny morning and it just made a change from rain.. We decided to move across the way from where we were as it was a sunnier spot and better views. Things were alright till we tried to get the telly signal. We could pick up the satellite Astra 2 but just got no transport code... it showed Null.. what is Null....Nil, Non, Nothing, Nought, Nowt, Goodness knows.. so a look on Google and he doesn't know either.. Oh well it must be the strength of the signal, so we will have to move back to where we was.. After a bit of maneuvering we got back on our old mooring, bit more muddy but hey ho..
So we set up the telly again, still the same strong signals on the bar graph, but Null on the transport stream so it won't search for channels.. Del tried everything with the dish till it nearly went in the cut.. After more surfing we have found out that its not a good idea to have a HD Sky + box on a boat where you have to keep setting up the dish, as they are unreliable. We did notice at first it takes longer, as when you turn the box on it takes about three minutes to do all its checks before you can turn it on, the old one only took about 10 seconds. So no HD for us, disappointing with the winter Olympics on the way. So we will have to pick up the old box next time we are down in Kent..
So with no telly we decided to go to the cinema again and see the film "I Frankenstein" worth watching if you like films like Batman.
