Do you think that was a simple solution? Not at all, I was out of any mood to watch a movie so it was a day or so before I decided to watch that DVD movie. By then I had totally forgotten which button to press on the TV and after trying for half an hour or so I decided to watch it on my laptop. I know how to do that, but I like to use the earphones when I watch a movie on the laptop. I put the earphones on and as the movie was starting I could not get any sound to come through the earphones. After several minutes of more frustrations, I decide that must be the earphones for a special radio I have. For whatever reason they would not work on the laptop.
