So, we have a jacked up cable box. It really likes the Hallmark Channel. You put in one channel, and you get the Hallmark Channel. You are actually on the channel you selected, but all you can see is whatever they are showing on Hallmark. You could sort of trick it and eventually get to where you wanted to be. Yesterday it crossed the line - Jurassic Park, Law and Order, Criminal Minds, Ghost Rider... all Hallmark all the time.
TBG took the box over, after spending 20 minutes on the phone with them. He came back just as I was starting dinner. And, guess what? The cable box was broken... he got home just as I was finishing up. This has become SOP with him at dinner time for the last week. Not happy...
Anyhow, the new box works fine. The new remote works fine and that means I won't have to sit through Christmas in July next week.
I'm so happy I could cry.
