LOL.. I must have been a little foggy when I wrote this post.. I said what would you do if your commuter died... I meant TV.. but it seems you figured that out! Sheesh!! (however I think I'd truly lose my mind w/o my laptop, no games, no forum, no google, no email .. eek that would be the pits)
Here's the latest.. hubby (being the genius that he is), took the little TV in the kitchen and put it on a TV table, LOL.. the screen is a quarter of the size of our livingroom tv. So I at least have that for now.
The thing died while I was away overnight... when hubby woke up this morning it was dead. So for once, I had nothing to do with it. **whew** No foggy moment of unplugging it or something weird like that.
The problem.. in this economy and with me not working at the moment the cost of another tv scares the heck outta me.
LOL @ U Danielle... sounds like you're getting to know me or we think the same way.. I don't know. Fibro-mites just seem to "get" fibro-mites. Thank GOD!!!!
Yes, I watch movies and shows that my husband downloads on to dvds alot too.
Well the TV problem didn't have anything to do with the HD conversion, just a freaky coinsedence.. I was hoping that was all that was wrong.. but no. The power button has gone gaflooie. The TV is only 4 yrs old and of course the warrantee has expired.
Talk about poor workmanship... the tv cost about $500.00 It was a name brand but I won't post the name, don't want to get in any trouble for that.
So, hubby and son will pull it out of the entertainment center tonight and see if something else has gone wrong .. like a wire coming out or something. Hubby's pretty convinced that it's dead. Of course he wants one of those big screen plasma EXPENSIVE jobs. Good grief.. I hope if we have to buy a new one it will last longer than this one.
BTW.. nice to meet you Manga Fan.. I see your new and I always try to welcome our new friends
Yes, I need my TV, especially when I an sick & just laying on the couch. I love to watch movies & things I have recorded. Makes my time on the couch a little more bearable. My Mom always had the TV on when I was growing up, well,once we got one. So I have always needed some background noise. I hate to say it but I remember before we even had a TV & the first day was so exciting. It was so cool. Then I remember getting the first color TV. Wow, was that cool but the picture was so terrible yet we all crowded around it to watch our shows. LOL People today would not put up with the reception we were just tickled with. LOL
Patti, have you thought about going to a Goodwill or a thrift store for a "meantime" TV? I am sure there are tons of TV now & may need a converter box but it would get you through. I have done that before & they usually make sure they work. Just a thought.
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren

Now your house will be like a theater. Someone told how to figure the size of TV you need according to room size and of course I don't remember how to do it now. I'm glad you got a new one.
luv and hugs
Danielle.. beleive it or not.. WalMart!!
