The art of Duh.
#1
I've been here 6 months... (Hey... shouldn't I get a 6 month anniversary dinner?) and hadn't set up the TV.  I like TV.  I love the cooking programs on the Asian channels, and some of the movies that I've missed.

Spiro had 2 tv's, but not plugged into anything.  Probably for games, maybe for hi-rez 40" porn, who knows, but I won't go into that...  

Well... I brought down my hoofing bloody great massively heavy 50" tv with me from Auckland to Wellytown carefully... oh so carefully,  and a Freeview decoder.

One of the tv's went into the bedroom and I connected my laptop to it for watching what I've downloaded and the other is in the lounge for watching videos.

I've had the damned freeview box in the bedroom waiting to set it up.  I can never find the cables, the batteries for the remote, a hard drive for recording on or the inclination to get my arse into gear and actually set the fucker up.

I finally tried this week.  DAYS spent trying to set it up.  Days spent moving the decoder into the lounge to find that it works fine, but not in the bedroom.  Fucking DAYS!

I was trying all day today, downloading the manuals for the telly and the decoder, trying to work out the cables for the UHF (They always end in the wrong end... female to female or male to female and it drives me mad.)

At the end of the day, around 4pm I finally thought.... hmmm........

..... and plugged the arial straight into the TV.

FUCKING THING HAS FREEVIEW BUILT IN.

Fuck.

fuck.

wine.  glug... bastards.

You must be reading the old Christian edition manuals. That's all legal now.
