Did anyone watch "The Puppybowl" ? Also, anyone know how to repair a scratch in an HDTV screen caused by an overzealous dog trying to protect us from ninja assassins slyly masked as cute puppies?

we loved the PuppyBowl.. especially the 'time *oust*' for the accidental personal foul.

sorry about the collateral damage to your TV.

We watched Puppy Bowl IV. It was wonderful, even if my choice, Bruin did not get most valuable puppy!

Hi Robin.. I went searching for a remedy for the HDTV scratch (my friends also have one, and also have a scratch).. there seems to be 2 highly popular "quick fixes":
1. Vaseline & a dry microfibre cloth...apply vaseline with a qtip or your clean finger so that it gets into the scratch "going with the grain" meaning the way the scratch happened (most likey from top to bottom).. then wipe clean with microfibre cloth until there's no excess left, may need to re-apply (there were other tips that were all oil based.. plain lip balm... candle wax - make sure its not hot but use just before it hardens again... unperfumed skin lotion.. one person even suggested body oil - as in your own body oil from your forehead! lol)
2. Clean, fresh, white pencil eraser.. depending on how deep the scratch is, this seems to work miracles according to various "tipsters".. just be sure to rub it on a piece of clean white paper first, to wear down the hard edge of a new eraser.

I don't own an LCD or plasma television so I cannot attest to the success of the above suggestions but, everywhere I went, people were praising the tipsters.

Good luck!

Awesome, Lisa! Thanks! It is a rear projection, set on its own stand on the floor. Before we got it, we had one that was set up too high for her to get at and we never used to worry about her attacking the dogs on TV. Our other dog barks because she is going all nuts, but he doesn't seem to see the images like she does.

I have the same TV. The "screen" is an acutal overlay. The plexiglass can be replaced, I don't know of anything to buff out the scratches, if they are deep.

I'm glad I still have my $250.00 Sony from Best Buy. The way I see it, a picture can only be so pretty, or clear. My TV does the same job as one that costs $3,000, I swear at it for any stupid reason, except NFL Replay calls.
