Greetings--

Is there a discussion board that can help me? The remote for my old MGA TV (pre 1990) has seen its last days. The TV itself still runs well. I purchased a new RCA universal remote but was unable to program it with the recommended codes.

Just trying to be frugal!

When I explain to my nephews how deprived his father and I were as children, I like to illustrate this by pointing out that we actually had to GET UP AND CHANGE THE CHANNELS OURSELVES! That never fails to impress them. I also explain that it was a black and white television, but I don't think they've ever seen one of those.

Dear Seattle --

I am not sure I understand the full meaning of your reply but sense that somehow you found my request for information on a new remote offensive. For this I apologize for it was not my intent.

It had been suggested to me that I try the LBYM board. To become the focus of some type of object lesson surprised me -- is there something inherently wrong in using a remote control to operate a TV? Or in wanting to prolong the usefulness of an old unit?

Our forefathers crossed the country by horse and wagon -- does that mean we should do so today? Lincoln read by candlelight, my mother washed our clothes by hand. I truly do not understand where you are coming from and again regret my transgressions.

Maybe I have confused living below your means with living in the past!
