Tuesday evening I decided to double down, roll the dice, go for broke. I visited the Piscataway Cablevision office to pick up a new cable modem, and figured since I was there I would pick up a new digital cable box.
The fun started when I got home. The new cable modem didn’t work. The old cable box stopped working as well. The new cable box didn’t work either. The TV worked, in that it received a signal, but didn’t work, in that the tuner has been permanently set to channel 3.
When I was joking that if I had to choose between no TV or no Internet, I’d choose the Internet, I didn’t mean that I was willing to give up both.
