Setting up TV remotes, a "Kill me" event.

Setting up TV remotes, a "Kill me" event.
I've taken college exams that made me wish I was being waterboarded or having bamboo shoved under my fingernails. But damned if trying to adjust a tv/cable remote with the "setup" option. The worst part is the timing.  If you don't press this or that button with in a nanosecond, the remote wont recognize your command. And you have to give the nuclear codes to get your cable or tv remote to work with your TV. 

What the fuck? All I want to do is watch TV.

Call your grandkids. Maybe one of them can come over and help you set it up.

Not the point. In all seriousness, I love the idea of universal remotes. But it is still complicated, and and I am slow. I don't think even with modern technology it should involve everyone who uses it has to be Bruce Lee in response.

Blessedly, there are none.

You say that like it is a bad thing. 

Humans are an invasive species. We currently and globally are mentally too stupid to see we are a victim of our own success. 

I used to think having kids was the apex of morality. But if you want to stupidly try to shame me into thinking I am less than, because you personally don't like me, not going to fly.

Not shaming you, stating a fact.

Yeah and I shouldn't be talkin. I got a Samsung phone recently after not having an iphone for 3-4 years and the Bixby bullshit almost sent me into conniption fits. I had to tap to first select each button or function I wanted to use and double tap in order for it to use the actual button or letter or whatever it was. And the first thing the phone setup made me do was setup a number passcode. It was pure hell. I'd select the first number, double tap it in order for it to type the number. Then I'd double tap the next number, only to realize, I hadn't tapped to select the second number. So, instead, I had typed the first sequence number AGAIN with my double tap because the first number was still "selected".

It took me forever to find where on the phone I could actually turn the souldamned thing off. Every once in a while, I accidentally push the Bixby button and it turns it on again, and another little piece of me dies.

If you TV isn't too old, you can download an app and operate it from your phone. Works much better than those old uni remotes. Otherwise, you're screwed.
Why is it so?
