So, you finally purchased the big-screen, HDTV you’ve been dreaming about. But before you sit down to enjoy it, you have to hook it up to the satellite or cable feed and the DVD player. Need some tips? Try the wirewize site.

You simply choose the components you’re working with (TV, A/V Receiver, DVD, cable/satellite/box, games console), and the site tells you which cables you’ll need, plus step-by-step instructions for connecting everything in your particular system. Too bad it doesn’t tell you how to program the clock on that old VCR.

That sounds very handy. I've always just had other people hook up my television needs. But I feel like someday I will probably need to know how to do it. Maybe I'll bookmark the Web site for the future. Thanks!
