re: Harmony remote question - Hopeful Doc on 5/26/17 at 8:50 am
Dad's responds to "turn on the TV" and all the activities. Hers does not. I think the big problem is that she has only a Roku and no real "channels" to go to and turn on (nothing autoplays). So i changed some things around, and now I can launch apps from Roku, but from there, she has to use the re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Harmony remote question - Hopeful Doc on 5/26/17 at 8:21 am
This is the cheapest option to switch to one remote for you. Firestick has no IR, so even though you may have everything in Line of Sight, an IR remote can only use CEC commands (limited function, it will eventually annoy you). This one can talk to it over Bluetooth and do a much better job. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Harmony remote question - Hopeful Doc on 5/26/17 at 7:28 am
That model is good. You will not find it cheaper. Usually on Amazon you can get the hub + keyboard (sans remote) for about the same refurbished, which was always an anomaly to me that it could be found cheaper than the remote + hub. The cheapest I've seen remote + hub is ~$90. The hub with u...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: How old were you when you stopped going to a Pediatrician? - Hopeful Doc on 5/24/17 at 6:49 pm
I switched from a pediatrician to a Family doc when I was 5 or 6. Either the pediatrician and I had unresolvable differences of opinions on who the better Mr Conductor from Shining Time Station was, or he moved away. I forget. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Would I hurt/break my Denon receiver (5.1) if I only plug in 2 or 3 speakers - Hopeful Doc on 5/22/17 at 11:06 am
You will not hurt it unless you also hook up cables and cross +/- where you don't have speakers (but I'm not thinking anyone with enough know-how to use the internet would do that) LCR is probably the most preferred 3-channel set up. You get good soundstaging and an enhanced theatre viewing exper...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: What's your opinion on vaping? - Hopeful Doc on 5/15/17 at 11:44 pm
Originally I thought it would be a good "habit breaker" for folks cutting back on cigarettes, but most people who vape wind up using both cigarettes and vaping, so I don't recommend it as a step down. It also seems to encourage nonsmokers to start in my experience and there is some decent eviden...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Tick bite has red bullseye around it - ER or doc in the box? - Hopeful Doc on 5/15/17 at 4:21 am
See your primary care doc in the morning or the next day. If you start having fevers or generally feel bad, re evaluate how bad you feel and consider more urgent evaluation. But for just a rash without rapid spreading, pain, etc it's ok to hang for a day. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
