Customer Question
I just ordered the...

I just ordered the HD antenna for my TV--I am allowed to watch it on my TV and not my computer, correct? And all this is legal, correct? So my question is, is the set-up. I temporarily disconnect the cable channel and hook the antenna device to my TV via...where? And how, by the USB connectors you tried to sell me, along with a few other things. Now, can I use the remote from my cable company or do I have to buy a universal remote--I have some in a drawer--or if they do not work, I have to buy a universal remote, as I understand it. .

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your computer? Have you had problems with the USB port in the past?

My computer is an old hp, model BL341UD#ABA, which was gutted and replaced with up-to-date. I have not have had any problems with the USB portals.

Technician's Assistant: What's the model and Operating System (OS) of your HP?

HP Compaq 8000 elite.

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your HP? What troubleshooting have you tried?

A year ago from Walmart. It's a rebuild and cost less to buy which fit my budget at the time. My computer guys found nothing wrong with it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
