Meaning, I didn’t realize it wasn’t compatible until it was way too late to return it, thereby losing a cool on the spot, ugh…
As for us, we’re still up a creek without a paddle.
We could move our smaller TV down into our main room if we wanted to have access to everything, but that kinda sucks (first world problems, right? Orrrrr we can cave in and pick up a new sexy TV to then stream everything to and slowly de-tach ourselves from Cable, but pending a change in the Mrs’ seas, that’s pretty out of the equation right now too.
The second step – call up Verizon and simply ask them to cut channels out and lower our bill (Hah! We figured if we could find a way to substitute our shows/movies over time by using the internet instead of Verizon, we’d save a nice stash of cash like many of you are already doing and have the best of both worlds going on.
Then, maybe, just maybe, my wife would be singing a new tune with those dollars in her pockets? I looked on Amazon for ways to hook up my TV to the internet, and came across Name Your Link" target="_blank"a slew of options.
We still want all three parts in our lives (notice the “want” there and not “need” – except for the internet), we just know there are cheaper ways to go about it if you harness creativity and newfangled technology.
So just like with our cell phones last month, and car insurance and home phone service this month, we set out to tackle the TV portion of this outrageous bill all in the spirit of challenging everything. Well, I’ll let my wife answer that part: That’s reason #1 :) Obviously outside of my control, unless I fancy myself a divorce. Our tube site is one of better places to enjoy Erotic porn vids. Updated every hour, you can enjoy all the Erotic clips which appear at Tube8, Xhamster, Hardsextube, Shufuni - from our Erotic category page, other than that you can sort by lenght, popularity and by date. So first bought a coaxial cable to see if that would do the trick (the Blu-ray and my TV both had slots for it) but of course that didn’t work – you need HDMI! I should have stopped there and ate the loss, but unfortunately I went on…Then I picked up an HDMI cord (getting closer) and tried plugging that into the DVD player which also connected the cable box, which then connected to the TV. I wondered if you could somehow up convert the old stuff into the new stuff, and came across a handful of reviews saying you could by buying a converter doo-hicky for those wanting to use new equipment with old TVS (like DVD players). So I tried my hand at that dropping another to get the well-rated Mini HDMI to 3RCA Composite AV Converter – along with the appropriate cables (another ), and off I went to convert. Though, I did muster up some resemblance of a conversion as I could at least then program the DVD player into the TV screen, however it was all pretty blurry and I managed to shrink the viewing size of the TV in half too. At the end of the The kind folks at Republic Wireless mentioned they were having a deal going on where all new purchasers of their phones/service would be getting a free Google Chromecast thingamajig, and they asked if I wanted to try one out and then do a giveaway (Unfortunately the offer is now over BUT they say it’ll probably happen again – so watch for it :)).There was Roku, Sungale, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and a ton more which I eventually got inundated with until I noticed that many Blu-ray DVD players now come with built-in wifi? I had never heard of this as we never watch DVDs, but if you can stream the internet on it at the same time while saving that money I was ’bout it ’bout it.
