What is a multiplexer?

I'm actually kind of embarrassed to ask this, since my wife constantly talks about this kind of stuff, and I feel like such an idiot. I have absolutely no idea what a multiplexer is. Can anyone provide a detailed information for a technically challenged guy?

In networking a multiplexer separates the voice-frequency signals from the high-speed data traffic on your telephone line and controls and routes digital subscriber line traffic between the end-user equipment and the network service provider's network.It has got multiple inputs and a selector that connects a specific input to the single output.

Why am I getting billed twice in one month for a YEAR long membership when I should be billed for only ONE?

You won't get any phone call from us Tom. You are not talking to who you think you are. We are Fixya, a self help, peer to peer help forum. We are people just like you, helping others because we can. We have no access to your accounts with the person you think you are talking to. You haven't even mentioned the company!

Sounds like you have been scammed. What you need to do is to contact the scammers and if you don't get satisfaction from them, contact your Visa Card merchant. Ask for a charge reversal, explain what happened. Then they will put the money back in your account and it will be down to the scammer to say why their charge was correct and you are wrong.

Just one final thing, double check that that final entry is not a credit against the earlier charge. That would be embarrassing :>)

You might want to edit out your phone number as there are a lot of crazy people out there. Actually, as moderator, I have done it for you.

Sentry headphones with mic

My mic DOES pick up stuff, we just can't quite figure out where the mic actually is so we can talk into it and actually hear us talking pretty well, we can slightly hear us talking into it in a recording, but it's so low! (we/us being me and my friend)

Is the ignition module located behind the glove box or under the hood?

That depends on what you mean by ignition module. If you are talking about your trucks ECM or on board computer then that is located behind your glove box. If you are talking about your trucks actual ignition switch then that is actually located inside the steering column. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. I hope this helps.

The bag won't stay on in the bag container

I thought my Oreck upright vacuum was broken because the bag wouldn't stay on. Even worse, when the bag popped off, I couldn't figure out how to get it back on. There was no satisfy 'click' or any other indication that the bag was installed properly. A good percentage of the time, it wasn't actually installed properly, and the dirt just collected in the space between the bag and the bag holder. (The easiest way to recover from this messy situation was to vacuum out the Oreck with another vacuum! When I do this, I can't help but think how embarrassed the Oreck must feel to be humilated in this manner . . .)

Anyway, after a trip to the Oreck dealer to purchase a replacement part for what I thought must surely be a broken bag-holder assembly, I now know that it's the design itself that is defective. After all the money we paid for the Oreck, my wife won't let me get rid of it. So I just use the cannister vac we got for free with the upright and spot vacuum instead. (I'm seriously thinking about breaking something inside the Oreck so my wife will let me throw it out and get a new vaccuum. We bought a new vacuum recently to use at our vacation cabin for a fraction of the price and it's a joy to use compared to the Orec - it was a Consumer Rerports "Best Buy".)

I just got my lap top back from my ex wife and i need to erase all her things on there what do i do

Then find her things and press "delete"? If it's her user account you are talking about, then go to control panels -> User accounts -> add/remove user account.

If you ask me, I'd just back up my stuffs and reformat the laptop. =P

Multiplex is a small part which sends the on/off signal from the actuator to all the door switches.  It is a dealer part.  You may be able to fix the multiplex if it is a contact issue. Good luck.

Camera stopped taking pictures.

well, I followed some other advice for another's problem. The suggestion was that the display button had been accidentally pushed. This was right on! I kind of thought it was something like that. I was asking my wife and kids if anybody had pushed any buttons. Never happened before. Kind of embarrassing, but the computer makes these cameras so complicated. My old eyes can barely see all the logos on that little screen. Thanks for being there, guys!
