That's ***** news :-(

Do a check with the TV manufacturer to see if the board on ebay is compatible with your TV, but don't place a bid until you hear back. (By the sound of it that board is not compatible with your TV)

I did a search, I found a BN94-05038C is substitute for the BN94-04358P, and another place said there are usually different main board numbers for the same TV, so I've got about 4hrs 20min. Honestly they look alike to Me.

And ShopJimmy says both are good enough, plus they supply a list of alternate part numbers on their website.

Auction: BN94-05038C

Buy it Now: BN94-04358P

I decided on the Auction, so far the bidding is at $35.00, plus $9.75 shipping, which is not even $45.00 total, the auction ends at 6:31pm PST.

I can listen to the TV, I only know a PBS show is on, and I could change the channel, but why?

It's an improvement.

I got My shopping done too, took 2 8hr tylenol caplets, and Pepto for My upset gut, Grace was fed before I left and I put all the groceries away.

I'm beat. But at least I can tolerate Diet Mountain Dew.

Min bid on an Xbox One X today is at least 27,900 points, there are a lot days between now and Jan 12th 2018.

Today I have 14,150 points towards an Xbox One X Console, out of 50 bids, I was 48th, I'm still going to build points, the more I get, the better My chances will be.

150 Xbox One X Consoles(suggested retail is $499.99 I think, I can wait) are being given away daily at the moment, in a few hours that will increase to 200 daily, this goes until Jan 12th 2018, so over 10,000 will be given away.

And yes, I was outbid once again... Xbox One X Console + Shadow of War This just happened to be biddable at one point by Me.

And on My TV, it is now half repaired, by Me.

Now My sore throat is over with, but the cold still has Me, so I'm going no where for the moment.

Yeah, too much for Me, I'll keep plugging away, if I don't win, I could spend the points on other items, like caps.

Right now I'm limited to Doritos and Diet MD, in a plastic Coca Cola tumbler, but then I have almost no sugar in My diet, not even ice cream anymore.

Here's the website for the Xbox One X give away.

I did a calculation based on local prices for 25 bags and 25 2L Diet MD bottles, it would set Me back $111.00, no it's just a calculation. A thought experiment.

Entered 1 bag(200) and 1 bottle(100) at a time yields 350 points, the extra 50 is bonus points for a combo, entering more than 2 bags at a time and/or 2 bottles yields only 50 extra points.

25 pairs x 350 = 8,750 points + 14,150 would yield 22,900 points, somewhere nearer to 39,000 points will yield a box, yeah some are evidently doing that, I doubt they are eating all of it, most is probably tossed. Maybe nearer to Jan 12th 2018 I'll get lucky, if not, well I tried.

I'm glad you are having fun with this contest!

Eric has really cut down on Mountain Dew over the past few years, so I'm sorry I haven't been able to contribute to your point count. I love Cool Ranch Doritos, but I never buy them because I know how weak I am. If I encounter them at parties, I have to force myself to walk away from the bowl.

I used to keep a twelve pack of Mtn Dew in my car's trunk, and it never froze, even in the dead of winter. Tells you something...

I've had My fill of the Diet Dew for the day, the taste is ok, I just want to go to bed tonight.

One good thing about the Diet stuff, I don't think it makes phlegm.

After Jan 12th I may not want to see either one in My shopping cart ever again.

I might go back to Fritos, maybe.

And yes I'm feeling like some truck ran Me over, barely able to get up, the slick floor and socks aren't helping much either.

I also didn't have much to eat today either, and as a result Grace got only dry food today.

I'm feeling better, still have some drainage and some coughing, but I think I'll be good enough to go outside on Thursday.

My TV main board might be here by either the 10th or by the 13th, the board is coming via Priority Mail, with the help of My led equipped flashlight, I can see some images on TV, though not all.

And today I did feel somewhat better, ugh, I hate being sick. I was able to go out and get some new cold medication, at the New Super Walmart in Barstow CA, and the TV part is getting closer to arriving here, then I can go and pick up My mail, which I'd have to do no matter what.

That is the proverbial $64 Million question, they're interviewing people for jobs, including a managerial position, otherwise no one knows.

Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/EddieWorld/

Lots of pics there, including this one of the water tank/sign, which is visible from the i15 fwy. The latest post is dated October 25th 2017.

I bid 14,550 on an Xbox One X, I started at 41st place, now I'm at 42nd place, less than 5h47m until the auction closes.

The low bid is at 12,400, so far.

Fingers crossed for you.

Thanks syffy c, I got outbid twice today, I'm at 15,000.

Ok I just got back from 3 of the stores in Barstow, the Post Office, and of course I was outbid, I think I will be able to change that, like 7,150 extra points or 22,150, once I get all the bags and bottles opened, I had to buy some bag clips too, plus 6 bags, for a grand total of $88.52, this includes My dinner, I'm tired, nope I don't feel like opening any bags or bottles yet, if I get tired of the soda, I guess I could pour it down the drain, the bags? I am not going there. The local Staters had 16 bottles total, I cleaned them out, $0.77 a bottle, plus tax and crv fee each, I got the 17th at Food4Less, the bags came from Walmart.

That will take a bit to go thru, getting all that info, putting it into notepad, then entering the characters online, thankfully I came loaded for bear.

I'm still coughing up some phlegm, but My fever broke today, so I'll be ok, though I do have a few bags of groceries to put away, Grace wants the plastic shopping bags to chew on, I tell Her No, and out the other ear it goes, can you say 3-4yr old?

And they are posting facts about the highest and lowest winning points per day and per auction now.
