Test card on BBCi

For some time I've been aware that my TV's setup is drifting slightly, and I'm losing more picture off the bottom of the screen than I would like. Borrowing a test pattern generator is a bit of a hassle, so I've not got around to sorting it out. Now someone's revealed how to get a test card via BBCi on DTT (aka Freeview), so once I dig out the info on how to get into my TV's service menu (it's in my office, somewhere) I'll be able to tweak things a bit.

My joy is only slightly tempered by discovering that an old friend, who has worked on test card generators, had known about this "secret code" for months.
