PowerSource 400

One of the items that UPS brought me today, was a PowerSource 400.

I already had one of these backing up my DSL modem, router, VoIP ATA and cordless phone base, which I had acquired last January....a month after the icepocalypse. And, I was happy with how well it worked, that I had been thinking of getting it to replace another UPS that had failed in my living room.

I still haven't replaced it, but I'll probably get another refurbished SmartUPS for there.

Anyways...having a UPS in the bedroom has been something that I've been thinking of...but the concern has been the noise a UPS makes when the power is out. I have heard of some people drilling holes from adjoining rooms to separate the bedroom from the UPS. But, it wasn't the kind of home improvement that I was interested in making at this point it time.

The idea for the UPS was to protect the pump for my Select Number bed. Even though it isn't supposed to deflate if it loses power, and it was plugged into a surge protector. I think the last 'failure' was connected to the way Westar seems to like kicking my power off for 2-3 seconds every now and then. Now that I have a medical device connected, I thought about filing whatever with them that I have something...but doubt that it would get me anything. The other thing is the aircleaner in my bedroom....it is a 'soft' power switch...so when it loses power, it stays off.

Now with the CPAP, the desire to have a UPS in the bedroom seemed to become that more urgent to me.

Boxee: CBS & CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Following the replacement of batteries in my SmartUPS 1250VA UPS, my TiVo HD failed to boot properly...and I didn't notice until CSI was more than half over, that it wasn't recording.... >:XX

I thought to myself on how I might recover from this, and decided that Boxee would come to the rescue again.

So, I watched other shows last night and this evening I set out to watch the missed episode (19 Down).

Had some issues with the AppleTV. First the remote wasn't selecting the input on my Zektor DVI5. For some reason the remote changes its code now and then. This the second time this has happened. Then the AppleTV wasn't cooperating. Menu with no text. This has been happening on occasion since the update the 2.3 and the latest of the launcher & boxee.

I had to restart the AppleTV a few times, and I re-updated the software....even though the versions haven't changed.

That was enough to get into Boxee and make my way to watching CSI.

It went pretty good.

Now back to my TiVo HD for regular recordings....starting with Eleventh Hour

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
