We had a problem with our Cable TV one day last week, I waited in line and got on the repair list. Whilst I was on the phone with the nice gentleman I asked if the repairman could bring me a new box with a DVR…I had thought long and hard about it and decided I was worth it…$14.00 a month. Nice gentleman says…Oh you have that equipment already and I see it is enabled. Really when did that happen? From day one he says…okie dokie. Now I just have to figure out how the darn thing works. He laughed. A few minutes later he called me back and said turn your channel…and my problem was fixed…it was a channel problem not a system problem. What a relief. Television Service with our local Cable Company which includes Telephone and Internet is so much nicer/better/cheaper than one of those big “D” companies.
I am still trying to figure the DVR out…how many programs can I record at once? I am waiting for the grands to visit again and give Grandma a quick lesson! Newfangled stuff should come with complete instructions.
I am kinda bummed out that I have missed out on numerous programs since last May…but hey better late than never and I LOVE LOVE LOVE forwarding through the commercials when I actually sit down to watch something and don’t fall asleep!
The TV at our house rarely gets turned off. It is great background noise. Sometimes I think Chance watches TV too!
Minnesota winters are brutal and television is one acceptable way to escape. It keeps us all out of the local news.
