Yeah I took a chance a while back on a listing for a Play1 that was something like $1.50. Of course it didn't work out but Amazon refunded the money no problem (although I had to wait past the...

I've been keeping an eye on the Echo/Alexa integration news before I buy anything. These DIY systems are indeed impressive but I'll wait and see what Sonos' official integration looks like. Then I...

I honestly don't remember Sandra - guess I need to see if I can go watch some old seasons. Which 2 did she win?

Yes - I should have edited my previous message. The issues I was having cleared up that same night - just some random temporary glitch, I guess.

Anyone having OTA Issues with KEYE CBS on 42.1? Ours is pixellating and dropping out quite a bit tonight. We're in 78759.

You're right and I totally forgot/overlooked that. Scott called him out on going home with an idol (although that wasn't his fault, right?), using his advantage to no effect, and being clueless on...

OK, adding my random thoughts on the finale. In no particular order:

The Sia thing was weird - I like her music and it was a great gesture to donate the money, but the wig hiding her face (I know...

I must have spaced out during an episode somewhere - when/how did Tai get the extra vote thing?

Agree with everyone - great episode. My wife was worried everyone was going to vote Tai and he would be the one left empty-handed when the other jerks didn't give up the other idol. Glad it turned...

You seem offended that I even asked the question. Maybe they have given them food and booze at previous merges, I just don't recall it. To me it's not the same as winning an auction or challenge...

I have to admit, at this point I think I am more interested in the Mike storyline than Saul. Not that the rest of the show is bad, but Mike is just such a badass.

Great, thanks again. I just called Amazon support to ask if they knew why my current IR remote didn't work after the upgrade. Worth a shot before I have to spend more money for a FLIRC! The guy...

Thanks for the confirmation - someone in a different forum suggested FLIRC but didn't say for sure if it is working post-update. If it is I guess I will have to drop another $20 or whatever.
