Okay, so I broke my leg, got a lot of couch time and all my roommates are going to be out of town next week, leaving me pretty much alone and apartment bound for a full week.
First matter first - we were recently given a PS3, but for the fucking life of me, I cant get it to hook up to our tv. Our TV only has a RF in (its old, whatever), and so I've always used an RF Modulator between the HDR and TV for any DVD or old VCR (yeah, old ski movies on VHS). The remote for the TV is long gone, but its never been a problem - as soon as I power up the DVD player or whatevers hooked up to the AV components, it takes over and cuts the cable signal. Not so for the PS3, and I've tried everything, even disconnecting the cable box, just running the PS3 -> RF Mod -> TV Ant in. No worky. No idea why. Any suggestions so I can get this working?
If the PS3 and all the games we have is a bust, I'll need something else. I have a pretty slick laptop that can run any game, but I have to use this thing on my lap, so using a mouse is kinda out. Games I've really enjoyed:
Sim City 4
Baldurs Gate/Neverwinter Nights (trying to play through nwn2, kinda boring so far)
Any of the OG skate games, but Tony Hawk series has gone downhill I hear
As for TV shows, these are the ones I've really enjoyed:
Dexter (Season 1-2, then it got bad)
And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. Anyways, halp?
