Out of the Blue

Welp, the gremlins managed to get in and strike overnight here at the Blue Tower. When I awoke this morning I recalled there was an early NFL game in London. So I popped on the TV to see what was up while I brewed some coffee. Minutes later I looked up to see that the screen was displaying a psychedelic pattern that would have been a perfect background for a Jimi Hendrix concert. There's not a lot to check in a situation like this. I played around with the inputs and tried the old power cycle hoohah, but it seems the TV has lost the ability to translate electrical impulses into coherent images, which is basically its only job. And on a football Sunday, no less! Not to mention the season premier of Succession tonight. I'll play around with the TV a bit more to see if there's some sort of "fix picture" function I'm missing, but I'm pretty sure it's just destined for the landfill and will need to be replaced.

Stay the hell away form Sony. I'll never buy anything else from them again. You can't use half the features on the TV unless you consent to them dataming you out the ass. They're also overpriced relative to picture quality. And they've intentionally gimped the online features so if you want a certain app like a VPN, good luck with that. They only allow you see what they want you to see. And it's all tied to Google datamining. I imagine Samsung and LG are the same.

Bought a TCL Roku TV for the bedroom and it's so much better all around. I actually had to buy a Roku soundbar for my Sony because I couldn't access Roku and all the other streaming channel services any other way. So my rec is for TCL.
