Hooray for eBay!
I broke the remote for my tv about umpteen months ago, but it didn't really bother me all that much. I don't have digital cable, so there's no cable remote to use, but just how lazy does one have to be to require a remote for tv watching? Just turn it on, find the proper volume/channel, sit down & watch, then stand up and turn it off.
The only drawback was that all the neato features that came with my tv (which I paid extra for) are useless without the remote. Oh well, no biggie.
But then the little buttons I'd been using on the tv broke. I guess they weren't designed to be the main user access point. Meh.
Enter eBay. I searched for the model number of my broken remote and found ONE. Waiting for me, amongst the five hundred gazillion garage sale items, was the one perfect, unopened, discontinued Sony remote that I'd been looking for.
A quick click on the BUY IT NOW button and it was MINE ALL MINE!
Just in time for winter break. Woohoo! Let the vegetation begin.
