I don’t know what we’re going to do about television at my house. We’re with Cox Communication and along with everybody else have been notified that Cox is going all digital and it would be necessary to request a digital box fromCos or stop by their store and pick one up. To punctuate that point Cox began dropping channels. When you clicked on one of these dropped channels a large notice on the screen would inform you this channel is no longer available. You need digital to view it, and all channels would go digital by July 12th. After four or five channels had been dropped including one of my wife’s favorites, we decided it would be best if if we go ahead and get the box and install it so we wouldn’t miss out on anything. I stopped by the Cox store and picked up a digital dos package which included two or three cables, a small remote, and a small instruction booklet. I was told it was easy to install, anyone could do it and to have a good day.They said the box was free for two years. I couldn’t figure out how to install it. I read and reread the instructions three times but it appeared the ends of the cables didn’t match up so that I could not do what the instruction said I needed to do. By now I have invested thirty or forty minutes into this digital venture with no good results. We decided to wait until our son install this for us. In due course our son came over and installed the digital box, scanned the channels and showed the missus how to us the remote. I asked my son why it was I couldn’t hook up the remote properly so that it would work. He said I apparently didn’t follow directions. I will admit to not understanding what they were telling me to do or how to do it. On top of all this the missus could read the print on the new, smaller remote control. She hated it, hated the city digital box and stated flatly, she didn’t want the digital. Our son unhooked everything and put the TV back as it was before we ever heard of digital. We, the missus and I, discussed buying an inside antenna , hooking it up and see what we could get without benefit of Cox Communication. So that’s what we did. We went to Best Buy, consulted with a Best Buy employee the proper antenna to get and brought one home to see how it would work in Norman. The Missus suggested I wait and let our son hook it up. I readily agreed. So our son, being the good son that he is, came over and hooked up the antenna for us. It didn’t work well for us. We couldn’t get many channels and most of the channels we could get we have never watched nor will we want watch them. And we couldn’t get PBS, a channel the missus spends much time with. We discussed returning the antenna to Best Buy but decided to wait until the weekend is over before making a decision. The missus is unhappy and by now I don’t care if I ever watch the television again. We decide to wait until the weekends is over before making a decision. I’m wondering how life suddenly got so complicated. It’s not always easy being an old senior.
