Researching OLED Television

No upgrade is imminent, but curiosity calls… Current OLEDs from Sony and LG all use the same panel made by LG. That panel is the same panel used in all models (at least in the LG lineup of B, C, G, E, and W). So the most basic and the most decked out LG OLED […]

From Hurricanes to Stranger Things

Well, there went a planned outing to the cabins at Bellows due to the hook and slice of Hurricanes Madeline and Lester. With Bellows cancelling stays starting from Saturday, we now had lots of free time over the Labor Day weekend. That time was spent watching (and finishing) the inaugural season of Stranger Things. This […]

Is the Shannara Chronicles Done?

So after ten episodes of the Shannara Chronicles, is it all done? Is this storyline/saga over and will there be follow-on shows? I admit this series has been fun with solid costumes and effects although some of the big bads didn’t seem that bad. There are still questions to be answered, and not having read […]

Tivo Roamio Upgraded

With my Tivo HD unit (circa 2008) showing the “black screen of death” more and more often, it was time to act and get a new Roamio. While the name is a little peculiar, this device is no joke. The strength of the Roamio is the remote viewing of recorded content included on the Plus […]

Darn You DWTS Mirrorball!

Darn you Dancing with the Stars!! After staying away for the last season, I made the mistake of taking a peek at Season 17. One unbelievable dance lead to another, and now I’m hooked once again. Week 1 was indescribable. Each performance got better and better. I was waiting for the first to fall or […]

Finding TC’s Chopper

There it was flying overhead, none other than TC’s infamous helicopter from the past hit Hawaiian television series Magnum P.I. Yes, the distinctively patterned helo, aka “The Chopper” is “back” in Hawaii, doing tours for Paradise Helicopters. As a fitting tribute, this restored helicopter is even signed by Magnum’s Roger E. Mosley (TC) and Larry […]

Making the Sony HT-CT260 Sound Bar Work with Oceanic Cable

My pops wanted better sound to match his HDTV broadcasts from Oceanic Cable. But when The Wire Cutter says no to home theaters in a box and endorses Sony’s HT-CT260 sound bar then you heed their researched advice. Unfortunately, the CT260 was out of stock at Amazon.com.
