Well, alrighty, then.
I just got off the phone with Walmart.com, and I have to say they are professional and responsive as I could possible ask. The second RCA home theater system has crashed, and they have found that the number of this type being reported with problems is higher than usual. They recommended that I accept a refund, and I agree. It was a bad experience, and I'm glad it is soon over.
I have to return the system, at their cost. I've thought about whether to replace it, and for now, no, I won't. I will set up by old theater system. The woofer wasn't working, but perhaps I can check it as set it up. If I can't get it working, so be it. I will still have the sound from the TV (not stellar quality, but sound) and will have the "surround sound" effect with the other speakers. It will get me by.
If anyone is considering purchasing a home theater system, I would suggest you think carefully before buying an RCA system. There may be other ones in the RCA family that are OK, but check carefully, research at consumer sites, etc. Since this is the second one that crashed on me since May, I would suggest careful selection. That brand has always been known for quality, but I'm doubtful at this time. And I'm really glad I didn't already set up the old one in the office as I planned!
I've had a challenging day. It seemed to me that the internet was funky, running slowly, etc. Plus I spent a lot of time this weekend entering genealogy information into MyHeritage.com or Family Tree. I found that I'd apparently started a family tree long ago, with only a few details in it, so I thought I'd just delete it and avoid the confusion of duplication. This morning I did. And apparently it had already attached itself to my new one with tons of information. Bottom line .... both, all information, was deleted. ARGGGGHHH. So I spent today recreating the whole thing. I'm so tired of my relatives at this moment!! A niece and nephew will be helping to fill in gaps of information and adding where I've not entered things. Hopefully, it won't take long to get things up to snuff.
Now it is time to get some dinner together. I'm hungry! I'm going to curl up on the couch after I eat and watch TV. It has been a cool day, with the high in the upper 60s, and it just feels like a good time to snuggle with the pups and watch some mindless, entertaining TV. Don'tcha think?
