    From what I know you tend to choose your own and have it approved....

    Staff in our department made a list of possible topics and we could either use them directly, alter them slightly or come up with our own. People on my course did a mix of all three.

    In our department, you come up with exactly what you want to do. So, when I write my dissertation, I will be given free rein to choose the topic and the question I want to tackle.

    You know what? Sometimes not having ads on the BBC can be a nightmare. I needed to wee really badly throughout the whole of HIGNFY, and the horse puns at the end almost pushed me over the edge.

    Has the signal and quality been ok with yours?
    Do you have the full package of tv box, landline and wi-fi? Or just the tv box?

    I know. Especially when they show films - I want a break half way through so I can go to the loo, get a cuppa tea etc

    ITV has way too many adverts and the BBC don't have enough.

    Yupp - although she supports an unelected House of Lords so she gets some points.

    Full package.

    Signal has been fine for me, although sometimes we do get some digital tearing (squares all over the screen), but that's quite rare.
    I find the box fairly difficult to use in contrast to both Sky and Virgin (both of which I've had in the past), which were really good.

    I have the full package too. I originally got it when I was living in a flat, and since it was quite far from the reciever the signal was quite poor. When I moved home again the signal was better at first, fine in fact but lately it's been crappy again.

    It all depends on how far away from the broadcasting antenna you are.

    The wifi is great though. It's nice having your own wifi. I have my own phone line but to be honest I don't really use it.

    We have Virgin Media - at first it was fantastic. Cheap, reliable and good. Now a days, however, our TV service is terrible. We should phone up and DEMAND our money back for a TV service we can't use.

    Have you tried moving your HomeHub or whatever you have as far away from the TV/TV wires as possible?
    We got bad signal problems at first, but it turned out it was interference caused by the close proximity of the HomeHub (with wifi) and the aerial cable going into the TV.

    They are in different rooms at the moment. The aerial wire is connected firmly.

    Hmm, maybe that was one problem in my last residence.
