Mission DVD Player

The DVD drives both in my laptop and PC were dead. When you have something u don’t feel its need that much but when it’s not there suddenly its need arieses. The same thing happened and now we wanted to watch movies kept in dvds. So finally we decided to come with a solution and decided to connect our DVD player with the PC. Before you ask why did I not connect it with TV, our TV was also not working for last few days :D.

So the search began at home first and we found our external TV tuner card at home. The next thing was information about how to connect it with PC and as expected manual was missing. Then the search began on internet and we found all the information. All the connections were made, every device switched on, Colored Mughal-E-Azam dvd inserted and wow !!!. We could listen to audio but no picture visible.

But as it had been decided that today is the day when system should work, me n my sis decided to get a new TV tuner box. So the search again began on internet to get an idea about prices of TV tuner box and we finally found it fits our budget. So I went to market straigtaway and bought a TV tuner box.

This time we had the manual with us. So againΒ  all the connections were made, every device switched on, Colored Mughal-E-Azam dvd inserted and wow !!!. We could see the video but no sound output. It was so irritating and we joked we should get both TV tuner boxes to work together if we want to make it work.

I again went back to shop, discovered that I need to have woffers if I want to connect speakers to recently bought TV tuner box. I was not gonna buy a woffer just to get a sound output and knew certainly there should be some way. I was arguing with the shop owner and his subordinate came with a solution , colloquially known as ‘jugad’. He gave me an extra cable, explained the connections and we were able to get the sound output from my new TV tuner box.

I thanked that man for his ‘jugad’ and came back home. Once again all the connections were made, every device switched on, Colored Mughal-E-Azam dvd inserted and wow !!!. We could enjoy the show this time :). Four hours of efforts finally paid off and learnt a new thing. ‘Jugad Technology’ works most of the times πŸ™‚

P.S.Β  For those who don’t have word ‘jugad’ in their dictionary, it’s a colloquial word in hindi meaning finding a way somehow to solve a problem πŸ™‚
