I went shopping today.
I finally have a set top box.
I have installed it except that I haven't got it plugged into the surround sound system.
Speaking of surround sound systems, I struggled getting that to work. It took me two days to get it to play the dvds and the tv. Wires everywhere. Speakers all over the place. My hand was quite sore when I was putting it together as I had just put two units together.
Now that I have a set top box I have to sort out the telly and the surround sound system again.
My telly is really old and you can only have one input into the tv. It is very funny when you are trying to plug everything in- dvd, surround sound and set top box. A friend gave me a switcher. It's fantastic. Watching tv was never so easy.
Tomorrow is the day I get the coaxial or whatever to get the set top box and the surround sound talking to each other.
