What a Mess

We bought a plasma TV a few weeks ago with the idea of mounting it above the fireplace and redecorating the family room. One thing after another keeps going wrong. We were supposed to have the TV mounted yesterday, but the place emailed me at 9pm the night before saying they couldn't do it until Sunday. I was annoyed by this because I had planned on painting later in the day on Saturday and all day Sunday once the TV was out of the way. So today they came and mounted it and it looked great...except none of the HDMI ports work. They all worked before, now they don't. So now I get to sit home and wait for the Panasonic repair man to come out sometime between 1 and 4 on Wednesday to try to fix it. Ugh. Oh and they won't look at it if its on the wall so it's back on the stand and the area above the fireplace is a mess of holes and wired. The goal was to try to have the room all done before my dad comes to visit (in less than two weeks). We have been working on this room for a while and we keep having problems every step of the way. We have a lot of work to do to get the room ready before he arrives and I'm going to be gone for 3 days next weekend. I've just accepted that it will be a mess when my dad gets here...although relatively clean since the last time he was here we were in the middle of the kitchen remodel.

Interesting, I used to have a Panasonic TV and had the exact same issue. The HD ports didn't work and it was so frustrating. I'm sure it will all come together, but right now it's just a pain!

Are they at least going to mount the TV on the wall again before they leave? Sheesh!

This is why I roll old school with my electronics!
