She asked why I said to watch DVD,s on She said We have one I said show me where it is then Guess what It's built into the telly.we have had for 4 years!!! Am I going senile?

@JimBo452020 What is Scart? Is the TV a smart TV? Didn't know a TV can have a radio.

@lovebuglena Oh Lena you have never lived. It's not a Smart TV. But it's like one. I can even play anything on my phone through it. Scart, just a type of connection

We bought one 20 years ago and never really used it. It is in the cabinet (underneath) where we have our television on. Just in case we ever decide that we want to look at a disc, although we could play them on our computer also.

I didn't realize people still watched DVDs! LOL I have subscriptions to several streaming services, so if I want to watch movies I just download them or stream them online and watch them on my smart tv or on my computer.

I don’t think you’re senile. How long has it been since they stopped doing that? It’s like a computer: try buying one that has a CD/DVD drawer in it! The question, though, is do you have and DVDs to watch??? THAT would be the senility part.

Aye. Because it had been tuned into a set top box like ours I didn't even have to set it up. Plugged it in, all. the channels and satellites were. the exact same. So never really though to look Never even thought about dvd
