Tech came to install cable.

Hooked up cable box while movin it from one side to the other and the box fried. Made a bright white light and started smoking. In doing so, it fired all 4 of my hdmi ports!!!

Not sure what they're gonna do about it right now but I am livid.

I can't play Xbox until they fix this shit.

Step 1: Buy a PS3; then, pay Netflix $7.99 a month for unlimited streaming.
Step 2: Buy NCAA Football '13 for said PS3, and then get your arse handed to you by FCN, once he gets around to buying it/they restock it.
Step 3: Bitch the hell out of the cable company.
Step 4: Demand the cable company replace your 4, now-fried HDMI cables.

It wasn't his cables it fried, it was all four of his actual hdmi PORTS. He's going to need a completely new TV.

what type of tv? Ive got some friends that  buy broken screen LCD Plasma LED tv's and salvage the  mother boards video boards and audio boards. i know you wont be fixing it but it might be as easy as pluging a new board in if they start dragging ass and you get tired of it.

Damn, I missed that. Thanks for pointing that out. :cheers:

In which case, Step 5 is needed.
Step 5: Get totally plastered tonight. Gear up for war with the cable company tomorrow

Did you get it at wally world and still have the receipt? Just carry it back and save yourself the time the cable company waste.

Nope not available. Just checked because I hadn't thought about that earlier.

It is Charter, UVerse, or DirecTV and DTV isn't allowed at my apt because my balcony faces north

I have UVerse and am overall pretty happy with it. There are times that you get frustrated with it but overall I like it. I would recomend it to you.

I have a lot of promotions and stuff from them where they take money off the bill.

Uh oh well good luck maybe charter does the right thing.

As someone said above I've never changed boards on a tv but thats kinda what I do for a living with computers. I couldn't guess a price for the board but I think the install would be fairly simple if it comes to that.
