    Today they were talking about wanting to watch some show on Amazon video but had no clue how to get it on their TV's.
    Robin said she thought you could only watch it on computer.
    They both have Tivo.
    It's right there on the damn Tivo menu screen !

    Could be a money thing, in that they have so much, they've never had to actually set anything up for the last decade or two. Howard talks about some AV guy he has sometimes that programs all his shit for him. For some people, the more money you have, the more helpless you become since you start becoming overly-reliant on a cadre of assistants, staff, etc.

    He tried playing a dvd in the CD player and blaming scott when it didn't work. Booey sounded afraid to tell him.

    I dialed into Fred's Bulletin Board at 9600 baud, after a few minutes, it was clear that he was trying to fuck me.

    I bought that Amazon Fire Stick. I works great and a first grader could operate it. Robin hooks computers up to her TV? I find that hard to believe.
