The DTV guy offered to set the wireless DTV up for us, but I declined as Verizon charges an arm and half a leg if you go over their GB limit. I may have to play with it some.

All my TVs are old, one of them over 20 years! I've managed to link them all. The one in the living room I linked to the family room with a kit from the local video store. DTV frowns upon this because they want you to buy another receiver, but I got away with it.
Yes! A kit! Is it wireless?

I'm scrounging for the manuals here, Pac, please bear with me. As I recall, I had to drill some holes in the floor and feed some wires, but that was 10 or so years ago. I think I used the RCA Hookup designed for DVDs and gaming. It was recommended by the local video store guy as a work-around. It still works great, I can watch the same program on 2 different TVs, and can now control both from 2 different remotes.

Right now, all our TVs talk to each other. I plan to explore the wifi connection, and will report back.

The only reason I was able to stay up until 10 o'clock is because I took a nap. Eyes are going crossed looking at the computer screen.

Goodnight all!

I'm about to go to bed. Hopefully I won't cough all night, though TB is doing enough coughing for both of us, poor guy. He has a chest infection and is on antibiotic and special cough medicine.

Mine is "just" my asthma, and I am trying really hard to not need prednisone so I am using my inhalers and nebulizer as directed, staying away from triggers and taking my "Singular" twice instead of once a day (as directed by the doctor).

'Night all.

And on, and on. Yesterday, while surfing for something to watch, I found about 8 different channels showing 8 different episodes! Weird!

I'm on my way into the City for my follow-up appointment. Plan to hit a couple of the specialty grocery stores before heading back out to the country. I hope this is the final trip into the City for awhile--I've been to the City four times in seven days. That's more often than I usually hit the City in two months. I almost think I should've packed a lunch...

At&t uverse TV has wireless TV boxes so that you can put a TV box anywhere even if a room isn't wired for it. A friend has the wireless boxes and says they work well. I'm surprised that other providers don't have this in place already.

It was very cool and I like the animation instead of doing "recreations" of points in history. And right after that we watched a couple episodes of Big Bang Theory, LOL!

I watched all of those on Saturday, but then I am a Cosmos fan from way back. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment.

It's amazing how much more we have discovered since Dr. Carl did the first series.
