Olympic Night

Published February 12, 2010 - 0 Comments

The Opening Ceremonies start tonight.  Unless I find a way to get a broadcast signal into my new TV, I don’t think that I’ll be watching them.  It does pose a bit of a problem though…  the hockey tournament will be starting up in a couple of days, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to be missing any of that!  I do have a backup TV that I can watch, but it seems such a waste to have a brand new 40″ LCD sitting there.  Oh sure, it looks great when I am playing movies and TV shows from my XBox 360, but the over-the-air antenna is useless when hooked up to it.  It’s strange.. that same antenna hooked up to an older TV, sitting in the exact same spot, brings in all the channels I need in crystal clear resolution (with a little tweaking, of course)…  but hooked up to the new TV (and yes, I’m amazed that it even has an antenna connector in the back!).. it’s useless.. it gets the sound for CBC, and that’s it…  no video, and it doesn’t even attempt to bring in CTV or Global.  I’m sure that the engineers who designed the TV weren’t expecting some idiot to try to hook up a set of analogue rabbit ears to his flatscreen.  I mean, who does that?

Yeah, I know…

Better go find somewhere to watch the Games!
