If you are attacked by Vertigo.....
First.... DO have a DVR in the bedroom, preferably with flat screen viewing. We have a 48 inch HD LCD WITH DVR and 700 channels living room only and a 25 inch Square screen with 70 channels, no DVR in the bedroom..
Second....if you are on total bed rest and have NO DVR in the bedroom, you will be forced to watch Commercials, you will have no fast forward or rewind, OR pause for potty breaks. you must time your stagger trips to potty at the time of commercials.
Third ... to answer your question, no I could not lie on the sofa in front of the living room TV because for some unknown reason laying flat in bed lessens the whirling/spinning head thing, but doing the same thing on the sofa does not. Remember Doc did say BED rest.
PS... no I did not take these pics with vertigo, they were in my drafts.
PSS...Yes, I did consider getting Bob to move the bed in the living room, but then what would the Commander of the Remote to said LCD TV watch? Men can't watch small TV with commercials. I read that somewhere.
