Have you tried looking up the manual on the net? Many times there is a pdf file available if you have the model etc.?

A large part of my problem is that the remote they gave me is different than the one the support desk has instructions for

Another call revealed that I could just use the tv remote to adjust the volume and turn the tv off. Very helpful.

Well two remotes are a pain, but any port in a storm they say.

I tried searching but turned up nothing. The digital box says Mororola on it - but no model number or anything. The information sheet that tells how to push 6 if you want to watch channel 6 says it's a Pioneer DCT.

I give up. I didn't want to watch tv anyway.

Take care, Margaret

Well now after all the expert advice I got from the help desk, the remote will no longer change channels on the cable box.

The new tv is going back to the store tomorrow. The sound is terrible - hisses like crazy.

And the cable thing is going back on Monday. Obviously there is something wrong with it and if they can't figure out how to work it, why should I waste my time.

The "other" tv service will get my business.

Take care, Margaret

As Promised... Here I am

Thank you to MaxPower for the invitation to this unique community dialogue. I've been lurking for the past week since joing ehmac and felt a tad light-headed about my ability to make a useful (or at least fun) contribution.

Just in case background... You can find my introduction on the appropriate forum and/or read my blog at http://www.bigbrook.blogspot.com

I've made an effort to read as many of the member profiles as is reasonably possible for the past week or so since joining the ehmac community and shared a few posts including questions.

Three things stand out LARGE from my experiences with the ehmac community to-date: [1] ehmac is a community [2] the diversity of members and their talents is extraordinary, and [3] in the vast majority of circumstances the kindness, courtesy and helpfulness is off-the-scale great. BTW the jokes section is awesome.

Hi Sheamus - sorry you had to arrive when I was in the middle of a tantrum about my tv. I try to maintain a greater degree of decorum, but this thing has me beat.

Welcome to the Shang - yes this is a community of caring people who have a variety of interests and abilities.

Take care, Margaret

Nice to have you aboard sheamusj. Hope you enjoy your times in The Shang as we all do. It's light and lively most of the time, but there are times when we have to help along a member with a problem and that too is gratifying when it ends well.

Just don't step on a doxie. Dr. G. (aka Marc) frowns on such things.

Your kindness is appreciated. Decorum is a funny thing, not always available nor often required. Much better truth, and the truth is that your TV is being unreasonable.
