Aussies: Mothers’ Day is this Sunday!

Quick reminder that it’s The Day Of The Mother for Australians this Sunday the 14th May.

If you haven’t bought a gift yet, well, lunchtime is good, right?

I got mine a Logitech Harmony 880 remote (kinda a both parents present really) and spent 4.5 hours fighting their Panasonic TV on the weekend getting it set up.

Number of remotes it replaces for them? 5.

Number of remotes I use for my MCE? The single MCE remote covers the lot (plus the Telly one when I need to switch to Xbox input, which is rarely). Woo!

Unfortunately, Media Centre doesn’t look like an option for them – they have interests spanning Foxtel Digital and Free To Air Digital (so 2 different sets of tuners), and that’s an unwinnable combination at the moment (right? I’d be happy to be corrected!).

Anyway, happy Mothers’ Day to all the mums that read my blog (including that one super special one that doesn’t!)
