Read to me classic stories of horror.

This Halloween, I'm going to bake myself a Halloween cake, light some candles, turn the lights off, and listen to recordings of classic horror stories read by masters of the form. Need to beef up the story list! [more inside]

Can I stream or listen to a New Year's Eve broadcast/show tonight?

After I put the kids to bed tonight, I'd kind of like to sit at my desk, pay some bills, pop open a beer, and keep an eye on the New Year's celebration. Problem is, I don't have cable or broadcast TV. [more inside]

24 hour broadcasting day of Classic Radio

Does anyone remember the posting of a full 24 hr broadcast day of a radio station from the classic radio era? I think it was from the 20's 30's or 40's. It was posted on soundcloud and was posted on an fpp here, but I can't find it anywhere.

Rebroadcasting video from a subnet

I run a science support network with frequent visitors and high turnover. A current project has two devices incorporating Axis webcams on a dedicated subnet. I have one laptop which is wired to the subnet and wireless on my “host” network. We don’t want to enable full routing to the subnet, so I want to use the laptop to re-broadcast the video from the two webcams onto the host network. The laptop (Windows 8) can see both the subnet and the host network, and machines on the host network can see the laptop. [more inside]

Where can I find historical broadcast TV schedules?

I've been scouring the internet for a way to pick a certain date and time in modern history and see what was being broadcast at that moment, but so far no luck. Does anybody know of an archive of this information, or any clever ways to repurpose any other existing data?

How to simulcast a movie?

HAAAAY, I was wondering if there's software or a website I could use to broadcast a movie file that I have, so that my friends and I could all watch it simultaneously. We could all download the file to our separate computers, but I'd like to have it broadcast from one web-location so that we can all be on the same second of the movie at the same time. So that we can gossip about what we're seeing. It would only be like five to ten people, max. Okay, thanks!

Which EU law mandates specified ideas are given positive press coverage?

From memory the gist of the law is that a certain portion or percentage of stories in a given time period must promote specified ideas. Those ideas are specified by a European body. The official line is that the law helps to spread important information, by requiring that it is published and broadcast often. [more inside]

What is this UK radio broadcast called?

A long string of obscure messages. Almost like code. Said in a low voice, a hypnotic monotone. I though it might be the Shipping Forecast, but that has some sense to it, in that it uses recognizable area/place names. What I'm thinking of seemed more mysterious, harder to parse. Does this ring a bell? Thanks.

Why are HD broadcasts at 720

(I could have some misconceptions regarding my question, so if so help me clear up my initial incorrect assertions.) It seems if most, if not all HD network broadcasts are 720p rather than the higher resolution 1080p. Why? Networks won't upgrade their cameras/transmission facilities? I spoke to my cable provider (Telus) and they assured me they could transmit higher resolution signals but the networks only provide them degraded quality feeds. Are there any networks that broadcast the higher quality signal?

Need a Friday Night Lights-esque song for middle school broadcast intro

Retransmission fees - shouldn't it be the other way around?

The recent blackout of CBS by Time Warner prompted this question. I understand the basic premise behind retransmission fees - if CableCo wants to carry broadcasts from XYZ network, they need permission from XYZ, who will charge a fee for the privilege. But this seems backwards to me. [more inside]

How do they mix the sound during football games?

From my experience, the language along the front lines of a football game is...salty, to put it mildly. Trash talk, insults, plenty of swear words. Yet, during football games on TV, I rarely hear this. Despite all the parabolic mics aimed at the line that let me hear all the grunts and clashes after the snap. Despite the fact that they mix in the quarterback's snap count and audibles - sometimes I can make out individual words and numbers. So how do they keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out so effectively?
