                           REMOTE TELEVISION OPERATIONS

     IN MY CABLE SYSTEM, NYT CABLE TV, LOCATED IN CHERRY HILL, SOUTHERN
  NEW JERSEY, WHERE I RESIDE, WE HAVE A CERTAIN KIND OF CABLE SYSTEM, THAT
  OTHER SYSTEMS AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE SLOWLY INCORPORATING.  THROUGH THIS
  SYSTEM, YOU CAN ORDER MOVIES RIGHT FROM YOUR HOME THAT WILL BE DISPLAYED
  RIGHT ON YOUR TV ON A CERTAIN CHANNEL AT A CERTAIN TIME.  THE CONTROLLER
  FOR THIS SERVICE IS CALLED A 'SPRUCER' CONTROLLER, AND NOT ONLY CAN IT
  JUST ORDER MOVIES, BUT IT HAS ALOT OF INTERNAL FEATURES THAT ARE ALOT OF
  FUN TO PLAY WITH.  YOU MIGHT HAVE A SERVICE LIKE THIS IN YOUR CABLE SYSTEM,
  BUT YOUR CONTROLLERS MIGHT BE DIFFERENT, BUT DON'T WORRY, IN A MATTER OF
  TIME YOU WILL SOON HAVE THE SAME SYSTEM AS MOST OTHER CITIES.
 
 
  ADDING FAVORITE CHANNELS TO THE SPRUCER'S MEMORY
  ------------------------------------------------
 
  SAY YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD MTV INTO THE SPRUCERS MEMORY SO WHENEVER YOU WANTED
  TO QUICKLY FLIP THROUGH THE CHANNELS WITHOUT HAVING TO USE THE CHANNEL UP OR
  CHANNEL DOWN KEYS OR HAVING TO PUNCH THE CHANNEL NUMBER IN, YOU COULD JUST
  HIT M)EMORY AND LET IT SCAN THROUGH YOUR FAVORITE CHANNELS.  TO DO THIS, YOU
  SIMPLY ENTER THE CHANNEL NUMBER (MTV IS CHANNEL 20 IN MY AREA), THEN ENTER,
  THEN THE PLUS KEY, AND THEN M)EMORY.  IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS:
 
     [20] [ENT] [+] [M]
 
   THE BLINKING 'LEARN' LIGHT WILL COME ON AND THE CHANNEL IS NOW IN MEMORY.
 
   TO DELETE THE CHANNEL FROM MEMORY, REPLACE THE [+] WITH A [-].
 
   CHANGING YOUR PERSONAL ACCESS CODE
   ----------------------------------
 
   YOUR ACCESS CODE IS VITALLY IMPORTANT WITH THIS SERVICE, MY ACCESS CODE IS
   MY ADDRESS, 137.  YOU NEED THIS IF YOU WANT TO ORDER MOVIES (FOR BILLING),
   TO LOCK OUT CHANNELS, AND OTHER FEATURES.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE YOUR
   ACCESS CODE FREQUENTLY, YOU WOULD TYPE IN THIS
 
   [R]        [M]         [X] [X] [X]         [-]    [N] [N] [N]         [ENT]
  RESET     MEMORY        ACCESS CODE       MINUS    NEW ACCESS CODE     ENTER
 
    AFTER THEH CORRECT INFORMATION HAS BEEN ENTERED, YOUR NEW ACCESS CODE WILL
    BLINK 3 TIMES.  DON'T FORGET YOUR ACCESS CODE AFTER CHANGING IT, YOU MAY
    WANT TO USE A 3 DIGIT NUMBER YOU KNOW (NPA OF PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS, ETC.)
 
    PARENTAL DISCRETION CONTROL
    ---------------------------
 
    THIS FEATURE IS EXTREMELY COOL IF YOU DON'T WANT ANYONE VIEWING A CERTAIN
    CHANNEL, YOU SIMPLY 'LOCK' IT OUT.  BY DOING THIS, ENTER:
 
    [R]     [-]        [X] [X] [X]          [+]       [0]            [ENT]
   RESET    MINUS      ACCESS CODE          PLUS   DISCRETION LEVEL  ENTER
 
     PARENTAL DISCRETION LEVEL [0] - NO PAY CHANNELS CAN BE VIEWED EXCEPT
                                     FOR 'THE DISNEY CHANNEL' (NO 'PLAYBOY'!)
 
     IN ORDER TO REOPEN YOUR AUTHORIZED PAY CHANNELS, PRESS THE FOLLOWING:
 
     [R]     [-]       [X] [X] [X]          [+]       [1]            [ENT]
    RESET    MINUS     ACCESS CODE          PLUS   DISCRETION LEVEL  ENTER
 
      PARENTAL DISCRETION LEVEL [1] - ALL AUTHORIZED PAY CHANNELS ARE OPEN.
 
        FIRST RUN IS A SERVICE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO ORDER MOVIES RIGHT TO YOUR TV
    THAT CAN BE VIEWED ON A CERTAIN CHANNEL, USUALLY CHANNEL 23 OR 29.
    ON CHANNEL 14 THEY CONSTANTLY PLAY REVIEWS AND PARTS OF THE MOVIES THAT  
    ARE SHOWING, AND ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS.  ONE THING THAT IS COOL, THEY
    CARRY ALL THE LATEST MOVIES, PLUS THEY ALSO CARRY PORNO AND PLAYBOY
    MOVIES.  TO ORDER A MOVIE, ENTER THIS:
 
      [R]      [X] [X] [X]       [+]      [V] [V] [V] [V]      [ENT]
     RESET     ACCESS CODE       PLUS     EVENT/MOVIE NUMBER   ENTER
 
     YOU MUST ORDER UP TO 10 MINUTES >BEFORE< THE MOVIE STARTS, NO LATER THAN
     10 MINUTES BECAUSE THE COMPUTER NEEDS TIME TO PROCESS YOUR MOVIE/EVENT
     REQUEST.  YOUR 'LEARN' LIGHT WILL COME ON AND NOTIFY THEIR COMPUTERS,
     IT WILL STOP, AND THEN COME ON AGAIN WHEN THE MOVIE IS ABOUT TO BEEN
     SHOWN.   ON THE EVENT NUMBER, THE LAST >2< DIGITS ARE THE CHANNEL IT WILL
     BE SHOWN ON, EXAMPLE: 5229, EVENT #52 SHOWN ON CHANNEL 29.  IF YOU WISH
     TO CANCEL A FIRST RUN EVENT BEFORE IT STARTS, ENTER:
 
       [R]       [X] [X] [X]       [-]      [V] [V] [V] [V]     [ENT]
      RESET      ACCESS CODE       PLUS     EVENT/MOVIE NUMBER  ENTER
 
    SPRUCER HOT LINE
    ----------------
 
    THEY ALSO OFFER A SPRUCER HOTLINE FOR HELP AND REPAIRS, THE ONE IN MY 
    AREA IS 609/354-1660.  WARNING:  THE SERVICE HAS SHIT ON IT SO IF YOU
    TRY TO PLAY WITH IT INTERNALLY (LIKE, BY TAKING THE TOP OFF OF THE 
    RECIEVER) IT WILL NOTIFY THEM.  SURF MONSTER AND I HAVE BEEN PLAYING WITH
    THE SPRUCER FOR A YEAR OR SO NOW, AND WE HAVE FOUND TONS OF THINGS
    THEY WON'T TELL YOU ABOUT, AND DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT.  IF YOU SCREW
    WITH IT LONG ENOUGH, YOU WILL FIND >BIG< HOLES IN THE SYSTEM.
 
    FUN WITH THE SPRUCER CONTROLLER
    -------------------------------
 
    NOW.  MY >WHOLE< TOWN, AND ABOUT 80% OF SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY AND THE
    NEIGHBORING TOWNS HAVE THIS SERVICE, THEY ALL HAVE THE >SAME< CONTROLLERS,
    GET THE PICTURE?  MY FRIENDS AND I HAVE EXTENSIVE FUN RUNNING AROUND
    NEIGHBORHOODS PEEKING INTO PEOPLE WINDOWS AND TURNING THEIR TV'S TO A
    DIFFERENT CHANNEL, LIKE MTV, IT'S COOL WHEN THE 'HEADBANGERS BALL' IS ON
    AND THEN YOU START ENTERING SHIT LIKE '666', '666', '666' AND THEY TOTALLY
    FREAK OUT, OR IN MY CASE, MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR HAS A LARGE BACKYARD WITH
    THE TV CLEARLY VISIBLE TO THE LARGE PORCH GLASS SLIDING DOOR.  SO WE SIT
    IN THE BACKYARD AND ORDER MOVIES.  IT'S NEVER ANY PROBLEM TO HACK OUT THE
    ACCESS CODE, SINCE (LIKE I SAID BEFORE) IT'S USUALLY THE 3 DIGITS OF THE
    ADDRESS, OR TELEPHONE NUMBER.  YOU CAN ALSO PICKUP THE MOVIES ON YOUR
    OWN RADIO (SLIGHT MODIFICATIONS MUST BE MADE), BUT IF YOU SCREW WITH 
    SOMETHING LONG ENOUGH, YOU WILL EVENTUALLY GET IT RIGHT.  BUT, IN GENERAL,
    YOU CAN HAVE A TON OF FUN WITH THIS REMOTE CONTROL, JUST THINK OF OTHER
    IDEAS FOR FUN WITH IT, YOUR IDEAS ARE LIMITLESS WITH THIS PIECE OF 
    JAPANESE TECHNOLOGY.  IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS TYPE OF CABLE SYSTEM IN YOUR
   LL THEM UP AND ASK ABOUT IT, THEY MIGHT EVEN HAVE IT COMING SOON.
    YOU NEVER KNOW.
