Never too late to update  
So I finally - FINALLY - got myself a flatscreen TV. It's a 55" Sony 3D capable full HD smart tv, such a huge change from my old CRT 27 inch tv that's lasted me since 1999 and was still going strong, so I felt just the tiniest bit guilty about updating.

And now I need to update my DVD player, as my current one is really old and doesn't transmit / read HD, so when I try to play a DVD it looks really grainy on the screen. If I have to update it anyway, may as well go to a bluray player - but I need one that will play multi region DVDs so has that limited my choices? Why yes, yes it has.

Anyhow, to celebrate the successful update I spent this evening streaming Pros songvids to the big screen. I have over 130 Pros songvids - what a prolific and talented fandom is Pros! And what a fun Saturday night I've had.

Now I just have Rage playing in the background, a nice accompaniment to a Saturday night. Hope everyone else is having as relaxing and enjoyable time.

Oh, you're ahead of me - I'm still thinking about it! I keep thinking that a flat screen tv would give more screen for less space in my wee room, and that if I'm going to do that then I should obviously get an HD smart one, and... and then it's just a slippery slope. *g* Right now I have my landlady's 18-ish" crt one, which is fine, but - amongst other things I have to plug and unplug to go from tv to dvd, so I hardly ever watch tv... I generally like Sony too - you'll have to let me know how you get on!

And yeay for streaming Prosvids to the big screen - sounds like a good Saturday night to me... *g*

That would drive me nuts, having to unplug and plug, somehow it just wouldn't seem worth the hassle.
I've been waiting for ages for my CRT TV to die but it wouldn't co-operate - I only updated now because I'd been to my sister's place and watched a couple of episodes of Dr Who on her huge screen and couldn't get over the difference in picture quality with the full HD.
And it was a good Saturday night, ta very much. So many lovely vids.
