It's a sickness, I tell you.


I finally decided to get with the times and buy a DVD player. But of course, I couldn't just buy a DVD player for $99 at Target. Oh no. I figured, hey, my stereo is pretty old, and I gave away my 15 year old speakers to my brother when I moved... so I bought a combination DVD player and receiver. Simple enough. Oh, I had to get speakers too.... and you know, everything will sound so much better with a subwoofer.... and so on.

Today UPS delivered the receiver... I went to set it up... and found out that it only has s-video outputs. And my TV only has composite video inputs. If I were a sane, rational person, I'd go down to the local electronics store and buy a converter. But here I am, looking at TVs on Crutchfield's web site.
