Many thanks and appreciation to Richard (Dickie) for sending me the Marconi TF966A info, it will help restore the one I've got.

Having a manual or even circuit diagram before you makes everything so much easier, so thanks again for sending it over.

Regards
PB

Many thanks to Aub for the DN360T Youview box. It works well, and the remote has also saved my DN372T from being scrapped. Much appreciated.

Many thanks to WME_Bill for sending over the info for Marconi TF1331, It'll help me clean-up & restore the one I've got, without sides & very mucky, sadly nearly all knobs stuck so its going to be a very slow job but has valves & both the TX's seem okay. So thanks again Bill.

Regards
Paul Bottrill

Thanks to vinylspinner for the Freeview box. It works well but confirmed that I can't get reliable Freeview reception here, and it only cost a few quid to find out.

A big thank you to Andy (Diabolical Artificer) he really has helped me out with a B14A socket even removing the wires and cleaning pins of solder before sending. Its a perfect fit.

Way above the call of duty.
This is not the first time Andy has helped me out either.

Thanks Andy

Many thanks to Anthony for the HV transformer and caps, which get me even closer to building a very serious audio amplifier project.

A big thank you to Paul, our illustrious forum’s owner for the two hard drives that arrived safely to-day. They will allow me to revive a secondary PC damaged by the violent death of its PSU. The kind of generosity only found on this forum.

I'd like to say a big "thank you" to greg_simons for the fine Garrard 2025TC that arrived today, safe and sound. Now I need a project for it but first a respray to get rid of the dratted "Dust Bug" patch!

A big thank you to Greg (G.Castle) for the Sony Ericsson-compatible power supplier plus assorted adaptors which arrived safely today. Very well packed, too!

Here are pics of it in action with my P800; I'll be attempting to revive the t39m a bit later.

Warmest wishes,
Guy

Thanks to robinshack for the ceramic rotary switches and IC regulators- a neighbour saw the delivery driver hurling the parcel over the high side gate despite the prominent "FRAGILE" label, but Rob's generous use of bubblewrap meant that everything was in fine fettle within.
