    This reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer turns on the TV by shooting at it.

    Wow, what a idiot :lolol

    Normally I'd feel bad because he's old but that's hilarious.

    I about popped a blood vessel dealing with my dad and this transition. I had to tell him 3 or 4 times, "Since you have cable, you're fine".

    "Well then why does the news keep talking about it?"

    "Because people are stupid."

    :lolol 

    I'm fortunate... my parents and I don't have to get converter boxes. But my older brother had to get one for his TV. Don't know why he bothered, seeing half the time he watches TV at our place.

    Well, he still can't as he needs the TV to even know if he got it working.
