strange i know
and yes the problem may be due to my lack of sanity

every now and then my tv starts talking to me.
i rarely answer it back coz i think what's the point, its a telly!

anyway what happens is the tv is switched off and suddenly the sound just comes on randomly for about 20 seconds but with no picture.

its really weird but kind of cool!
cant decide if i should bother taking it back or not, ive had it for about a year and i dont fancy trying to explain it to the store without trying to sound like a mental patient on smack

If you stumble into the store shouting that your tv is talking to you well..:teeth:If you explain the problem properly there shouldn´t be a problem.

I would be concerned if Evil Edna starts running round in my house tho :D

id only be worried if it knew your name and was talking about shit not on the tv. try talking back, see if it has a personality. if it all gets a bit much, just pull the plug :)

What does it say to you then? What do TV's have to talk about?!
It's just the sound from whatever channel I was watching before I turned it off!

I've been leaving it on sky news so if it comes on while I'm snoozing at least I'm learning something!

i got a new freeview box for my bedroom, when you switch it off the picture goes but the sound stays on ??? this was advertised as an energy efficient freeview box. can't see how it not switching off properly saves me energy.

haha not a good sign. mate of mine shoots in and out of the looney bin (the intensive ward known as 'the storm') and thinks hes psychic. like he can tell how people feel or what they want just by looking at them. i always wondered how hes capable of taking himself seriously when he knows hes on heaps of medication

flicking between 2 channels showing the same thing BBC1 (early morning) & BBC News can also be a bit freaky when you get delays and then you do know what they gonna say next, can get looping / sampler effects...:rolleyes:

Its all about that Bill Bailey gag where he's chatting about getting stoned & watching mundane daytime T.V & to numb the boredom he likes to draw a cheesy grin on the T.V with a washable marker, for that one moment of glee in the day, when the smile randomly matches up with Richard or Judys face.

:D

well, its not all about that particiular bill bailey bit, in fact i think its fair to say the 'it' in the equation is not about him at all. cos hes boring. no, upon closer inspection i beleive youll find its all about a small mouse whos lost his parents on the way to america. thats what its all about.

our tv upsatirs runs a bit ahead of the ones downstairs, so u can walk downstairs and hear the same sentance twice, which is a bit odd.

well logikz, i think i have located the source of the problem.
When i moved in there was a dead bird in the attic, the builders must have trapped him in there.
i think its fair to assume that after a pain staking death due to starvation, the bird's spirit has decided to seek revenge by haunting my tv.

i have found the solution on the web...
how to trap evil spirits in a jar, This traps an evil entity or evil spirits and prevents any harm being done.

do this at ur own risk
instructions: Put the Rose Thorns into the jar one at a time and as you do this and drop one in, chant the following words each time: ''Thou Demon presence. Be no more!'' Crush up the Thorns in the jar and then crush up the Rose petals and add them to the jar, slowly add the salt water. Keep the jar open overnight. The next morning before the sunrise close the lid. All the evil should now be trapped inside the jar. Cover the jar with a cloth and bury it far away from the house in a place that has no buildings nearby. (forest is recommended)

I know how i'm spending my xmas!
