Way back in 1993, I purchased a brand new RCA television. I loved it. Then. Unfortunately, the darned thing won't break. I was raised by parents who were contemptuous of trends and avoided consumerism. You replace something if it breaks and not before then.
Many's the time I visited a friend's house and was green with envy at the sight of their huge television screen. Even worse, the blasted thing is what I think is called analog. A year ago, I quit getting some channels because I had the wrong type of television set. I grew to hate my RCA television. I would return home and gaze at it with loathing. I tried leaving it on for weeks at a time. I let it get dusty, and I slammed into it whenever I found the opportunity. Still it worked. Still the picture was clear, and the colors vivid.
This year, I couldn't take any more. I bought myself a television for Christmas, a lovely 37" screen RCA (yes). I don't know what I'll do with the old one, but I'm hoping I drop it when I move it down to the basement.
Now I have this magnificent television. I would love to watch it, but ithere's a slight problem. Televisions have clearly changed in the last 20 years. This RCA is too high tech for me to figure out how to hook it up. I've plugged in everything I should need, but it keeps telling me there is no signal.
Can someone help me? The next time I want to watch a show, I will likely have to sit in the basement. Maybe I won't break that old one after all
