Monday night, I curled up with Carter on the couch. He was fussy so I was hoping he would go on to sleep. Lately, we've been watching Sprout on On Demand and he has quickly drifted off to sleep. So, I reached for the remote and turned the TV on. Everything popped up like normal, except for the cable. I tried the menu button. Nothing. I tried changing the channels. Nothing. So I turned on the VCR and started the Cedarmont Kids video (yes, we still have a VCR). Carter was not interested at all.
Maybe we had forgotten to pay our bill.
I used my cell phone to call our home phone to see if our service was disconnected. While doing this, I noticed Jeff was using the Internet and watching cable TV. We still had service, and my husband confirmed the bill had been paid.
I went back to figure out what was going on. Maybe the cat messed something up. He is good at that.
As I am doing everything I had already done, I noticed the cable box power light was off.
Yes, the power was off. I decided to turn the cable box on.
