Worlds creepiest thickest potato chip

My grandfather found this in a bag of Herr’s potato chips today.  At first I thought some bread or a cookie had fallen in the bag.  But after a quick smell test, it is indeed some freakish form of potato.

Verizon FiOS | how to setup remote control to change volume on the set top box (STB)

I plug my FiOS box into a 22″ Acer monitor using an HDMI to DVI cable.  I have an old Boston Acoustic 2.1 computer speaker set that I plug in for sound.  Changing the volume required standing up and walking over to the speakers.  Commercials are approximately 470% louder than regular television programming, so it’s nice to control volume remotely.

Verizon FiOS Philips RC 144 Remote

These instructions are for the Philips RC 144 Remote:

1.  Press and hold the STB key
2.  While holding down STB, press OK
3.  Release both keys, the device keys will blink twice.
4.  Press 9 – 5 – 5, the STB key will blink twice
5.  Press OK

Volume is now setup to change the volume on the Verizon box rather than the TV.

Visit this page if you have another remote or want to download the user manual for your Verizon FiOS remote.
