    Bob: I bought a new TV on the weekend.

    Mark: What make is it?

    Bob: Samsung. It's only 32" but I can't get it to talk to my Freeview box.

    Jon: I thought it was a smart TV?

    :laugh:

    Oh, right. I got that bit, but didn't realise it was that funny.

    Thanks.

    I thought it was funny.
    But not as funny as someone who never posts about AV on an AV forum! ;)

    i actually dont understand why its funny either, in fact, the conversation makes perfect sense to me and i think maybe you mis-understood it...

    i immediately assumed that he is basically saying why are you bothering with a freeview box when everything is built in since its a smart TV...

    So let talk about ADC on a Samsung TV? Oh! You can't because you've grown out of it. :rotfl:

    Or is that you have NO idea about AV? Which is why you hang around the General Chat section. :hiya:

    Before we get into a my-setup-is-bigger-than-yours discussion, are we allowed to include all of our houses?

    ooh while you're there, can we get clarity on whether we have to choose one building per property, or can use different out-buildings to represent different parts of the AV spectrum (namely, A and V)?

    Maybe you could have explained the joke a bit better and why it was so funny then :smashin:

    Because it's falling on a lot of deaf ears in here, because we don't know why it was funny Jon said it :thumbsup:

    Can I just say, this is without a shadow of a doubt the most baffling thread I've ever seen in years of visiting this forum.

    No joke.
