yes. yes, i am. please hold your applause.
how many people do you know, have ONE remote to control them all? NONE, that's how many. cuz even if they have the tv programmed they still always have to use the tv remote to control the sound. i am the time warner remote control master!
last nite was project nite. while HM was painting our living room, with a shade of red that will need at least 10 coats, i opted for a more "not painting" project.... setting up the DVR. santa came early cuz i've been a good girl. =)
it started out as just plugging it in and calling the number to sync it or whatever. but after that, i started reading the instructions on the remote. oh, i always knew there were volume controls on cable remotes. i just never knew you could actually use them. you can! admit it, every house you go to has at least 2 remotes if not more. one for the cable box the other for the volume and then the dvd, vcr, blah blah blah.
we have only the dvd hooked up to our main tv but that, too, has been programmed. yay me! so, we now have DVR. we also have the tv and dvd player AND ALL VOLUME control going thru the cable remote. no more remotes needed. just the one. i'm a god!
you may applaud now.
p.s. this applies to everyone except steph, cuz she has a programmer husband who probably invented the damn thing in the first place! ;o)
