I took it to mean that your user name and password for Amazon and other accounts might not be encrypted and you could get hacked. But I could be wrong.

When it asks you to login, you could enter the user name and password for the account that created the folder on the PC. Passwords can be blank, I think.

I think the problem you're having could...

Thank you!
I checked out the Sony 740D and 900e. I rather liked them both and will probably go that way. Before I do, I shall try to view the 78KS9500 - nor too sure about a curved screen tho.

Thanks for the projector suggestion. I have a very good 1080p projector. It is great for movies at night, but it isn't bright enough to play games unless I'm in a completely dark room. The screen...

I love this TV, but made the mistake of getting the 55" version. I'm going to give the JS8500 to my parents and and get a larger TV for myself. I'd like to keep 3D, but that isn't my main concern....

Yes, I've had problems like that a couple of times this year. What I think happened with the shows I missed is that somehow the name of the pilot was slightly different. I had one case where the...

I forget if mine had a flashing red light or not. Probably did. It sounds as though it mat have overheated and shut down. I assume that the projector has been unplugged for a fairly long time and...

I find my Edge quite useful with my UHD TV. For me it is mostly about independence. I don't use my AVR as a video switch mainly because it is old and was expensive. It still sounds great and works...

Good point about Skip. I hardly ever watch stuff the same day I record it, so if I do the connect every morning I should be OK. I'll find out :)

Hopefully this mess will go away soon. But then...

Thanks. You're right. I meant to say allow access only during those hours. I set it up that way and it seemed OK tonight. The thing is that I don't always get the dang circle, so I may not...

I just set my router's parental control to deny the Tivo access to the Internet between Midnight and 8 AM - so the problem should go away most days.
