Am I the only one that has trouble turning on a T.V. set today? I can’t seem to turn on my T.V. set with one click anymore. Worst yet I have 6 remote controls. One for the actual factory T.V. one from The Cable Company’s remote another for the VHS another for the DVD player & yet another for the Blu-Ray DVD Player..
I bought a Blu Ray DVD Player..I got myself a deluxe copy of Ben-Hur & The Ten Commandments to watch on the upcoming Passover Easter Holidays.
Years ago you put the DVD into the slot and that was it.. and presto the movies started !
Today when you put the Disc into the player there are several options that appear on the screen..One for play another for Strictly Music yet several more for directors extra cuts.. However I couldn’t for the life of me find the play button..there had to be at least 50 buttons on the remote control and not one was labeled the play button.
I pressed every button at least a hundred times and finally I must have hit the right one and the movie started. After 2 hours the movie paused for intermission and I was ready to commence to push the play button or some button in order something to start the movie again.
Low and behold I finally got lucky & got it to work for me..but it proceeded to return to the beginning if the film. .and no fast forward button..at least none that I could find.
Prince Phillip of England who is a very smart fellow said that you practically have to make love to the remotes to work. How sad they can send a rocket to the moon but they can’t create an Instant on T.V. and Simplified Settings.
