Sharp And Harmony For The Win

Well the new bedroom TV arrived today. I've been shopping for new TVs for about, oh I don't know, ever. Part of the problem in the past has been price. Part has been space. Well LCDs have come way down and as far as I'm concerned are now affordable. The living room has not been cleaned out enough to receive a new TV yet, but the bedroom has been upgraded. Yes it's wider than the bathroom door. (Please ignore the messy closet. It is full after all.)

That's a new Sharp LC-37GP1U 37" LCD TV. Woohoo! (All kinds of toys arrived this week.) Standard def TV is so-so. No worse than the previous TV in my opinion. An upgraded DirecTV box is on the horizon, but not for at least a month. While the DVD player is just a standard DVD player and currently only outputting via S-VHS it still looks fucking rad! Yes rad dude.

That brings me to the next topic. My Logitech Harmony remotes. So the remote for the bedroom was previously programmed for the old TV plus DVD player and DirecTV box. All I had to do to setup the remote for use with the new TV was update the profile online and then hook up the USB cable and click 'next'. Boom! Remote all configured for the new setup. I love my Harmony remotes. They're light. They're easy to set up. The online software asks you all the right questions. It's awesome. I don't even have the latest model remote. It's not perfect, but it's darn close. I liked the first one I got so much that I picked up a second one for the bedroom. The first one was just as easy to set up with even more gear. The first one controls a VCR(Soon to be gone, I mean c'mon who watches VHS? I mean really.), DVD, TV, DirecTV and home theatre receiver. Not a complicated setup, but it would have been a pain to have to manually program a remote to control all of it. Logitech and the Harmony remote took care of it all for me. Anyway. Lovin' the new TV and my handy dandy remotes that control the world.

F@%& You Kimmel!

If you don't know who Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel are then skip the jump. However, if you do then take a look at what Crufty posted, via Metafilter.
