Yep - Comcast... I can't get DSL where I live - Cable Modem service is OK, but I long for FiOS (FTTP) that is being deployed in my old neighborhood...

Not in the Family room...

How? That we have a playroom? That he has a TV in the playroom? Or is it that the DVD player is integrated into the set?

A Playroom happens when you have kids, either you set aside a room for the toys, or they will take over one of the rooms anyway.

That my son has a TV in the playroom is more a result of our having an "extra" TV (we got the integrated set when our bedroom TV died by using some Credit Card reward points - zero cash - and it has a nice, flat tube in it. Then I broke down and had the broken TV repaired *again*).

The DVD player in the TV is not my preference, but, it really reduces the clutter around the TV, and for *zero* dollars, no regrets...

Sorry of I'm over-reacting, but I'm not sure how to take your comment Joshua...
