Mom Ain't Good With Modern Electronics

The living room was eerily "quiet" when I woke up this morning. Mom is usually watching something on TV that time of morning. Turns out she had the TV off, because a "software update" notice popped up on the screen, she couldn't change channels with the notice up, she didn't know what to do about it, so she just turned off the TV and was reading a book.

I turned the TV on, ran the update, and now she's watching "The Price is Right". Maybe, since I rarely use the online features on that TV anyway (I have a Roku hooked to it), I should just leave the ethernet disconnected, and just plug it in every so often to check for updates, that way it would avoid confusion for mom.
