So Time Warner chooses to do an update on the cable boxes vie the cable line. The update apparently shorts out our 41 inch tv Evil or Very Mad !!
Well just getting off work (11pm) I had to spend an hour disconnecting and powering down everything to (thank the heavens) have the tv repair the short. Nothing like having power surge protectors just to have an surge go through the cable line! Anyway all is find but, boy was I scared and angry.

Self-repairing televisions?

It has begun. Shocked



Glad everything worked itself out, though. I would have been a litle ill.

I've seen surge protectors now with the cable inputs.

Did you call TW to see if this was a fluke or if you'll need to rely on your television's mutant healing factor the next time they update?

I should call Time Warner, but all is ok. And who knew, an off brand (to me, not Sony or RCA) had such mystical and magical powers.

So just a little note to remember.."Never underestimate the underdog."
