Merry Christmas from INHD2

Footage of a burning log.


On Christmas Day, I was testing our Pronto remote, which I had reprogrammed for the family room since the Crestron took its previous job downstairs. I noticed that INHD2 was showing footage of a fireplace. I opened up the menu, which let me know that from 7 AM to 3 PM on Christmas, they would be broadcasting "Yule Log," with "footage of a burning log" as the only description. We left it on because it was funny, and it actually worked out well for me because I couldn't see the real fire from where I was sitting.

This reminds me of Carroll's Jewelers in Doylestown, which has a flat screen TV running footage of a fish tank. At first glance, it looks real. In fact, some people never figure out that it's not. (Sorry to break it to you if you were one of the believers.)
