miko2: Ranma disguised as a schoolgirl to fool Ryoga (Default)
For Christmas, my nephew got a new LCD TV. His old one was only a year old, so they gave it to me as a present. It's a bit smaller than my previous TV, which was 27", but my old TV is a massive heavy non-digital tube television.

Now the plan is to give away my old TV and my massive entertainment center, if possible. I think my friend Tom might want the TV if I offer it to him.

On the down side, my new TV still doesn't pick up any television signals. I live on a hill with trees everywhere so always had to use rabbit ears on the old TV, but they won't work for a digital signal.

On Friday I drove up to Fry's to get an HDMI - DVI cable. With that, I'll be able to hook up my computer to my new TV if I want, which might be fun to try. I also got a DVI - SVGA connector, which allows me to also hook the TV up to my laptop -- with suspect video quality, I would guess, but we'll see.

The cable only had one end showing, which was the DVI connector. But the box clearly said HDMI - DVI. I took it home and opened it up, and discovered that it was actually a DVI - DVI cord. :P That did me no good, and it was well after 5 PM on New Year's eve, so I had to wait until Sunday and drive back up to exchange it. Kind of annoying to make that long drive again to exchange something that cost me about $17.00.

I did very little for New Year's. In fact, I went to be about 11 PM. ^_^
