Underkill?

So last night I finally broke down and bought myself a new DVD Player. Since my Xbox died I've been stuck with only being able to watch over-the-air TV since I cancelled cable, and Netflix streams on my computer.

Actually I was in the market for a cheapo plain jane DVD player, but what I ended up with was the Magnavox Blue-Ray 5130 model, with 1080p upconvert, built in WiFi and Netflix/Vudu/Blockbuster support.

After giving it my network SSID and password, it needed to download a firmware upgrade for the latest version of Netflix.

Couple minutes after that I was watching netflix movies from my instant queue, on my daughters old 13" Hello-Kitty TV using the composite video and left-audio cable.

(holding out on getting a nice new tv until I get a new apartment)

I actually still have a hello kitty toothbrush holder in the bathroom as well. It doesn't hold the newer toothbrushes very well though (it likes the old style plain rectangular shaped handles)

My daughter had a ton of Hello Kitty stuff (including about 5 DVD's) that she recently got rid of when she moved. I asked her if she wanted the TV and she said no (I guess she's got a better one already at her mom's place)...

Ain't nothing wrong with Hello Kitty - especially when you're an avid Anime collector like myself.

I'm not much into playing console games these days. My XBox is fried and I've got about two dozen games for it just sitting on the shelf...been contemplating listing them for sale here...

ROFL at the Hello Kitty TV. You can go on Craigslist. Nice CRTs are being given away for free if you're looking to upgrade.

That reminds me... we have a 32" CRT that we're going to be wanting to dispose of (either sell for cheap, or donate to charity) soon. Interested FutureMon See Profile?

I have a 27" in my living room; so I'm not really in the market for another tube TV.

I don't see a need for a real nice TV when I'm gonna end up getting FIOS or something and end up in a 12 month contract when I'm planning on moving in the next couple of months. Just waiting until I get a new apartment.

Thanks for the offer tho!
