THAT DAMNED NEW REMOTE CONTROL
Hey folks. How ya'll all doing these days? Wonderful I do hope. I know I havent written lately and for that I can only say I miss writing to all of you and hope I can do it a little more often. As of today I now have spent a total of 5 hours trying to hook up all the new digital equipment that Comcast Cable shipped to us last week.I got the two smaller adapters on the spare tvs with only a litttle bit of trouble but the one in the living room that has to connect to not only the tv but also to the vcr and the dvd player.My beautiful wife and I started on this project this morning and bless her heart if not for her sweetness I would have thrown all the cables teh digital box and who knows what else throught the front window. I would get the tv working only to find out the vcr didnt work. Aftrer getting the vcr working I found the tv no longer worked right.The dvd player?? well forget that! I finally got the tv working and the vcr working but have to use like three different remotes to get them to work. The new remote that came with all this stuff has so many buttons and stuff on it I dont know if I will ever figure it all out.We are just lucky that I got the main tv working so we can watch HOUSE on it tonight. No problem with the 2 tvs in the bedrooms cause they dont have a complicated remote control. My only hope is that somepoor soul who knows a little about making sense of the remote will come over and show my wife how its suppopsed to work so wde can do away with some of the other remotes. Who ever said newer technology is great must be NUTS! Ok so I ranted enough today and tomorrow I may give it another shot to learning the remote.But then again I may go fishing instead. At least my fishing equipment is not complicated. Sure do hope all of you are doing great and that the new week has started off really great. Take care and do come again, I mean who knows I may write something interesting the next time--that is unless I go completely and utterly mad tring to figure the new remote out! "HUGS" to all.
