You know how the cable techie tells you to pull the plug to the box, wait a minute and plug it back in. Then you get the “boot” and “~” messages, the box goes black and in a minute or two or bingo! the time comes on and you can watch TV.
Well having just this morning graduated from MIT and after lunch, got a PhD in TV Scientectomy from CalTech for Dummies, I can suggest you just turn off the power strip. instead of pulling the plug. It’s just as effective (which the cable techies just admitted), and as an added plus, you get many, many commercials with your TV programs.
There is no charge for this hi tech advice, but if you want to email me a Steinway 9-foot Concert Grand Piano, and a house to put it in, I would considerate them as adequate expressions of your appreciation of my magnanimity.
