I now understand why people hire Home Theater Specialists, because it is really effin' complicated when your old DVD player breaks and you buy a fancy new DVD, DVR, VCR, recordable combo-thingy and try to plug it in.
Because it isn't just plug n' play. There's a rats nest of wires and remotes. And somehow the tuner, the speakers, Tivo, Directv, PS2, and the tv are suppose to allmagically come together. Sure.
Thankfully my iPod is back from the Apple Repair Day Spa and is refreshed, sleek,and ready to go because I apparently will never be watching tv agai
