Getting a few more miles out of my TV
My TV in the living rrom (25" I think) has been on its way out for some time. Of the 3 main local channels I watch (I only have local) one has been going out for some time now. Sometimes it is fine, and other times its not.
If there happens to be something of interest I want to see on that channel, (Oprah and some others), I set the TV to channel 3, and then use the receiver in the VCR. So far, I've gotten about an extra 6 months out of the TV.
The same thing is starting to happen in the bedroom as well. Luckily there is also a VCR hooked to that one too.
I've used the VCRs more as receivers in the past few months, than I ever used them in the last 15 years or so.
