yeah, its funny when you put it in that perspective - $10 vs $150. She probably even complimented you on how wonderful it turned out after she realized your thrifty ingenuity. The house I just looked at yesterday has a dish out there. So, that is an option. I really don't want to go the satellite route, but that is the price I pay for going so damn rural - no high speet internet.
The place has a complete unfinished basement - JOY !!!! So, it may be on soon ! Lucky me, unlucky mrs.
But, back on topic. That is a truly pro looking setup with the faceplate and all. nice job! Thanks for the ideas. I will have to redo it a little for my pj, but I believe the only problem I will encounter would be for the lamp replacement. Both the filters are on the back of mine. It has been packed away too long , i cannot remember.
Thanks for the wonderful idea, ... mot
