But Critter helped. ;)

Ooh, ooh, Wal-Mart has their DVD schlock bin going again! I hope I selected well for Ted.

$15 got me a pretty full-featured universal remote control. In the process of programming it, Critter figured out why the DSS audio channel wasn't playing through the receiver anymore, and fixed it. And through sheer stubbornness, I found the right button to cycle through the inputs on the receiver.

And now, I'm listening to show tunes in the kitchen, while Tigger watches the extra materials on the Inspector Gadget DVD, with overhead sound in the family room. Whee!

I'm waiting until later to more carefully read the section on setting up the remote control in home theatre mode.

And now I'm going to finish up the Quicken bits before starting supper.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
