I need one of these! My television, as I have mentioned before is so old that it looks like one of the first televisions to use a remote control. I swear it is from the late seventies or early eighties. It is a 20″ Chromatic Space Command. Currently, I have to use my VHS tape player as the middle guy to hook up the Xbox 360. This also created the horrible problem of not being able to watch DVD’s from the Xbox 360, which was found out to be due to the Macrovision copy protection so that I won’t record DVD’s onto VHS tapes.
Check out the article from Ars Technica making fun of my need for such a device.
You wander around your local video game store, a little bored, just looking for something new. Nothing catches your eye, and then suddenly BAM! You feel like you’re on the moon. They couldn’t have possibly made something this silly, could they? Of course they could.
They are available from Gamestop for $9.99 USD. I wonder how much it would cost me to get one…
