ME: I get real frustrated how when sometimes I push the "on" button for the tv in the living room and the cable doesn't come on. then i can push the button "off' and then back "on" five times and it finally comes on. why is that?

J: That remote is kinda funky. I need to set up the good remote with our new cable.

ME: but it works every time in the bedroom. just not here. annoying.

J: IT’s because HDMI has a delay in the switching-the other remote will fix it. Trust me, little tech novice.

ME: you make me giggle.
