Any time we get rain, winds or other weather phenomena, cable boxes all over town go haywire. No need to get bent out of shape as we've got the fix. If your TV exhibits the following behavior:

1) You have picture but no sound.
2) Your GUIDE stops working.
3) Your channel up/down don't work.
4) The cable box shows half an information bar at the bottom of the screen instead of a full one.

Here is the fix. Simply UNPLUG your cable box from the power, wait about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once it reboots, you should have your TV back!

Keep in mind that these problems typically happen around weather events so when a storm is coming in (like right now...it's raining and we've been getting cable-box calls all weekend), keep this information in mind.

UPDATE: Sometimes it's difficult to get to the power cord on your cable box. Want to make cable box resets easy? Add one of our BOBs to power-cycle your cable box and other components a snap! See link below.

Our resident geek likes to muse over the latest and greatest that comes into the office. We’ve gotten tired of hearing him, so we’re letting him vent to you.

“Hi friends...Poindexter here. I LOVE computers. Aside from being able to pretend that it is a member of the opposite sex to ask it questions, it lets me access a world of music. Here are some new options that are available.

1) Sonos: This gadget acts as my personal music assistant. It lets me listen to any type of music that I want to. What’s super cool is that I control it with a special remote that works anywhere in the house and that shows me pictures of what is playing. I get feedback of the artist, songs, albums and more at all times. It’s too cool to describe adequately but we have it on display in our office if you are interested in a demo.

2) AppleTV: This neato device can transfer any movies or music that are on your computer to your home theater. You can also use it for slide-shows of photos for friends or family. Perfect for highlighting your pictures. Photos of this year’s Star Trek convention look GREAT on a 60” TV (as opposed to your computer monitor). Of course, James T. Kirk always looks fantastic.

You can also access services like Pandora internet radio, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and others with the aid of your computer and networking. Man's best friend, the dog? I don't think so, my friends...I don't think so."

P.S. Since this article's inception, wireless networking has become much more relevant. Need help with your WiFi, San Diego? Let San Diego's WiFi and networking experts help you to get robust, whole-house WiFi throughout your house and property.

Poindexter's Blog...Samsung Blu-Ray players

Poindexter's Blog

Samsung Blu-Ray players...what a cool toy!

Our resident geek likes to muse over the latest and greatest that comes into the office. We've gotten tired of hearing him, so we're letting him vent to you.

"Hi friends...Poindexter here. I just got a chance to play with the new Samsung Blu-Ray players. These things are great! Here are a few of the features that I like and that you need to have:

1) Universal player: It plays anything round (Blu-Ray, DVD and CD) and does a fantastic job with Blu-Ray playback. The picture is unreal!

2) Pandora: You can build your own personal radio stations with this feature for FREE! I'm not sure how they do this but it could be magic. I think they include a small wizard inside each player. Anyways, you access Pandora through the player, pick your favorite artist and WHAMMO!...you've got a radio station that is tailored to your musical liking. Love the Eagles? You can have the Eagles and their contemporaries playing on your station all day long! And best...no commercials and did I mention it's FREE!

3) Netflix: You can get Netflix movies instantly through these players. Movies are very important to me as my social calendar is a little light at the moment. When I want to watch a movie, I can access it instantly instead of waiting for it in the mail. NICE!

I gotta go. "The life cycle of the Banana Slug" just came on PBS. Too bad it's not in 3D. See you soon!"
