Does anyone know who I could call to have someone come and hook up a DVD/VCR player to my TV/Cable box? Apparently this was so complicated, not even the FIOS tech could set it up, and all the instructions I get from the forum need a degree from MIT to translate. I've tried calling the Geek Squad, and they came over here when I was not home. My father was home and he was the one who dealt with them. They gave him a complicated explanation with a series of buttons he had to push in the right order in order to get the DVD player to work with FIOS. My father doesn't remember any of it and he didn't write it down. All further phone calls to Geek Squad have gotten us nowhere. The local Best Buy store tells us to call the main office, the main office says to call the Best Buy store. I am deaf and cannot do these calls myself, so I'm depending on my father to do this. He does not want to call them back again. It's been 8 months without a DVD player and I'm going nuts. Does anyone know of any place that's not the Geek Squad that would do something like this? Verizon also says they don't send people out on these kinds of calls, either.

All I want is to be able to turn the damned DVD player on and press "play". Is that so hard? nooooo, I have to press no less than 6 buttons in the right order to get everything to work correctly. I actually lost the picture on my TV for hours because I pressed the wrong combo of buttons and it took forever and pressing random buttons to get it back.

Sorry, this is just half rant/half question. My question is: Does anyone know of any place that's not the Geek Squad that can hook up a DVD player?
