Then press the 'cable' button and then try the volume.

Also, it takes away the frustration say if you just wanna come in, plop on the couch, watch some tele, but don't want to feel like you need a degree in electronics to just watch the tv, and adjust the volume accordingly.
With our cable remote, we got a six page booklet for the directions. Once we figured it out, we now only need the one remote. I can control the cable box, the TV and the DVD player with it.

I have a remote for my condo. Not only the tv/media center, but ac/heat, blinds, lights. . . and with my app, I can do all the stuff when I am not even home. Is it overkill? I suppose. Is it neat-o? YES! I am just a technophile, and love me my gadgets. It has proven good for energy savings, as all my lights go off at a predetermined time, my heat/ac shuts down 30min after leaving, and comes back to life 30min prior to arrival.


if anyone is in the market for a new TV, I HIGHLY suggest the Samsung line of smart Tv's. I love it's all around usefulness, it is DLNA compatible, it has netflix, blockbuster, and Samsungs own on demand entertainment program. . .world wide TV via Internet, just SO much more than a "TV", imo. . .and it 60inch display is mesmerizing.

I have a cell phone. It doesn't do anything except let me make phone calls. I presently have accumulated more than 1300 roll over minutes. I get 60 minutes a month. That should give you an idea of how much I use it. My calls can be timed for seconds which is how long my calls last. I use it to find my son in the supermarket. "Where are you? I am at register 25 ready to check out.. Bye." That is a long call for me.

Waiting for people to wake up so I can make waffles for breakfast.

We had the same problem with our cable remote. Are you by chance running the sound through one of the other devices (for example, some DVD/BluRay players also include a built-in surround sound system)? I never was able to get the TV and sound system to work together.

We ended up having to buy a Logitech Harmony remote. It isn't 100% perfect, but it does control every single device we own.

Get on over here. We have bacon, sausage and home fries too. Milk, grapefruit juice and orange juice to drink. Choice of maple syrup or wild honey to go with the waffles.

Experimenting with pineapple syrup. I threw skins and core into a pot with water, sugar, and agave syrup, BTB, and RTS. Smells really good. I may throw in a hunk of ginger.

Oh Dear! My mouth is salivating. I need to get a tissue to catch the drool. I love a good breakfast. Unfortunately, I never make one for myself. But any time I go out for breakfast, I order a good one. That is one meal where I really try to clean my plate. I will even eat white toast if wheat or rye is not available. But breakfast tastes even better when it is for supper.
