The rest of the day was spent bringing my mom kicking and screaming into the digital age. Every t.v. in the house is 20 years or older. With the digital conversion happening in 3 months, she needed to get with the program no matter how much she hated the concept. The converter boxes would not work because the sets were too old. I told her I would take her to Best Buy and get her set up. We left the store with 3 LCD tvs. It was an early Xmas present to her from my sister and me. I spent a few hours getting everything set up and working. Unfortunately the one LG set I bought refuses to find digital signals, so back to the store it goes today. I think mom was impressed by the digital HD quality. I know I was for over-the-air signals. This is a cable-free house which makes picture quality an issue. I also had a heck of a time explaining the concept of channel 7.1 as opposed to just channel 7. I really lost her when I showed her that there were now 4 channel 11's and 4 channel 26's. Hopefully I set everything up so that it will be a no-brainer. Just enjoy the nice picture!
BTW, Kitty is now here safe and sound and we'll be heading up to the MFF hotel this afternoon. See everyone there who's going!
