Of Radio channels and Transponder quality......

Just a few days ago we reported that the radio stations on Dialog TV have vanished. Apparently the reason that this was done was to allocate the bandwidth to the television channels and improve their quality. As per the information being received the radio channels will not be reintroduced anytime soon.

According to other information being received by us, the reason that the quality levels have dropped on certain transponders is because Dialog TV are carrying out some tests in order to reduce rain fade. If this report is correct then it will be great news for Dialog TV subscribers.

There are some unconfirmed reports that Dialog is planning to some channels to their lineup. We reiterate that Dialog TV should remove SET SAB and add another channel in its place. Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

I know this is off-topic but i'm planning to install a tv card for my pc and was thinking is it possible for me to put an alternate cable from dtv decoder and hook it up to my pc. Will i be able to browse all the channels through my pc or do i have to change the channels using the dtv remote.

You will have to switch channels through DTV remote. Whatever channel you selected from STB will be visible in both TV and PC.

AUSTRALIA has won the second cricket Test but only after a poor umpiring decison robbed Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara of a double century.

Chasing a world-record total of 507 to win on a flat Bellerive Oval pitch, the tourists were dismissed for 410 soon after lunch.

Brett Lee took four wickets and fellow paceman Mitchell Johnson two.

Sri Lanka resumed on 3-247, advancing to 3-265 before losing five wickets for the addition of just 25 runs.

Lee took his seventh wicket of the match, dismissing Sanath Jayasuriya caught behind for 45 in the fifth over after a 107-run partnership with Sangakkara.

Three overs later Johnson struck twice in two balls, removing Chamara Silva (0) caught at second slip and trapping wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene (0) lbw with no shot offered.

Captain Ricky Ponting elected not to take the second new ball after the 80th over and gave wayward leg-spinner Stuart MacGill another chance.

MacGill's 0-93 from 16 overs yesterday and knee trouble were put to one side as he dismissed Farveez Maharoof (4) caught at mid-on from a long-hop.

In the following over Sri Lanka lost their fifth wicket of the morning with tailender Dilhara Fernando run out attempting a third run in a sloppy performance from the first ball he faced, as substitute fielder Rhett Lockyear claimed his third dismissal for the game _ two run outs and one catch.

Stuart Clark took the second new ball in the 89th over and Sangakkara drove handsomely through cover to reach his 150 from 246 balls with 20 boundaries.

Sangakkara added 74 in 66 minutes for the ninth wicket with Malinga before he was struck on the shoulder and helmet by a bouncer from Stuart Clark and given out caught in slips by Ponting for 192, after hitting 27 fours and one six in 431 minutes.

The decision from South African umpire Rudi Koertzen was a shocker and Sangakkara's disappointment was clear as he departed.
