[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2569133]Could you name three households where modern televisions are actually completely disconnected from the power grid?[/QUOTE]
Depends on what you consider “modern”.
I grew up in a country area where many households were too far off the beaten track to get grid connected electricity … and hence needed to run their own generators.

Previously they had an entire 1KM between them and the nearest house
