OK.

I drew this picture. Please don't laugh much. I hope it answers questions.

Um. there were a lot of questions over the last couple days so if I missed any, please let me know.

Thanks.

You can admit it Jim. You're just jealous of my artistic ability.

Zig - The drawing is fine, really!!

What cracked me up was the ingenuity of it......it's one of those 'now why didn't I think of that' moments.

I would have written chapters about what goes where and what is connected to what. You nailed it all with one simple drawing.

I gotta learn to think more laterally!!!

Cheers mate.....Jim

ah. that.

i was going to do something fancy with Photoshop. Of course, I don't know how to use Photoshop, so I thought drawing and scanning would be easier.

[quote="Mindblower":3nzt8lu4]For those who use Firefox, there is a neat Add-On called [b:3nzt8lu4]Fire Tv button [/b:3nzt8lu4]which allows you to see tv shows, movies, news, sports, and so much more from around the [i:3nzt8lu4]WORLD[/i:3nzt8lu4]. Those wanting a taste of what is out there should give it a try.[/quote:3nzt8lu4]

I couldn't find that add on. I did find something called FireEdition Project Free TV which had a rating of ONE STAR. I do have the latest Firefox too, which was downloaded and installed without my permission. Grrrrrrr .... !!!!

Marci - It seems Fire TV Button is not available via the Mozilla site. It can be downloaded from here: http://download.cnet.com/Fire-TV-button ... 19623.html

Or from the home page here: http://www.firetvlive.com/

To prevent Firefox from automatically updating without letting you know: Open Firefox and go to [b:2xnftwnv]Tools>Options[/b:2xnftwnv]. Now click on the [b:2xnftwnv]Advanced[/b:2xnftwnv] tab and then on the[b:2xnftwnv] Update[/b:2xnftwnv] tab. From there, under "[i:2xnftwnv]When updates to Firefox are found[/i:2xnftwnv]", you can select the option to "[i:2xnftwnv]Ask me what I want to do[/i:2xnftwnv]".

Okay, this is very strange. Just read about the Fire TV button, and see if you can follow along. I have two computers which had this button / addon installed for Firefox. It seems that somewhere (when the latest Firefox updates took place and I'm not sure just when), this button was removed/deleted from only one computer. Still have the original [b:11lvxu8o]TV[/b:11lvxu8o] Fire TV on one computer which is also update to the latest 3.6.12 version of Firefox. But I needed to follow the steps supplied by ozbloke to get this button back on the other computer also running the same latest version of Firefox. And it gets stranger. The two buttons as NOT the same. The newer version shows [b:11lvxu8o]TV[/b:11lvxu8o] TV Button (no mention of Fire) and have a different (newer) screen with icons. It also feels / acts differently. Since it's not what I'm used to using, I take back my recommendation (till I can get to the bottom of this mess), Mindblower!

PS It's version 1.04 of the Fire TV (with no newer updates available)
It's version 1.05 of TV TV Button and it's no yet rated. Go figure, Mindblower!
