Re: RIP Sid Waddell

RIP Sid. Loved his one liners. Some were obscure but all were great.

Darts won't be the same. :(

Re: Records sound a bit fuzzy?

Hmm

Im no expert but the speakers have an impedance value, as does the wire connected to it.

Maybe the extra pair you added does not match the Stereos output.?

This is why i suggested reverting back to the original setup as a test.

Re: Does anybody in here..fix TV's?

Problem is a bulging capacitor isn't always the case for a blown one.

There could be a failed capacitor that looks normal. :?

So on the second button press it comes on normally.? It just switches off after the first press.?

Thats what i was thinking. If there was one longer, faster stretch included it would give a passing chance and add another dimension.

I think they said they did that for the spectators and cameras.? They wanted lots of aerial shots it seems.
