The oldest grandson read my blog entry yesterday, started putting two and two together, and figured out how to get everything working on our television: Roku, Antenna, Directv, the works. Even as I do this entry, I'm watching the movie "Labor Day"; I read the book and liked it, so this is my opportunity to see what they did with it in a movie.. I have Amazon Prime, which gives me a lot of things to watch. I couldn't watch Amazon without the Roku my Russian friend gave me some time back, so I'm grateful to him. Thanks, Meesha!
The grandson used to work installing Directv, which gives him a pretty good working knowledge of how, where, and what to hook up on the back of a television. At first everything on the Roku was coming in as black and white, but he went to his garage and found a different cable, and that fixed that problem. It works great! There was a problem also with the program having to stop and load in the middle of everything, but I think he adjusted something with the high definition. That seems to have fixed it, since my movie is playing uninterrupted right now.
I am working with three remotes now, but I'm fine with that. There's the original TV remote that I hadn't used in years, the Roku remote, and the Directv remote.
I'm a happy camper. Wouldn't it be funny if this led to our getting rid of Directv eventually?
We brought home two baby calves yesterday, but that will be another entry.
