While Ma and Da descended on the BBC, it was Uncle Andy who rocked up at Havelock House.
And luckily for him, his favourite presenter (or one of them at least, along with Rose Neill, Sarah Travers, Donna Traynor, Tina Campbell) was on hand to help.
But unfortunately, Pamela Ballantine had to break it to a smitten Uncle Andy that he didn't really qualify for any digital switchover assistance.
Not that he seemed too put out in the end - not by the time he was whisking Pammie off to the Kneebreakers for a pint ...
Over at the Beeb, there was also help on hand from none other than Jackie Fullerton.
"Oh, Jackie - you are worth the licence fee all by yourself," Ma swooned, despite Da's scowls.
British cultural imperialism? Sure, you never miss Downton Abbey!
The scenes were broadcast as part of a special live simulcast show by UTV and BBC NI, to mark the switching over from analogue to digital and the end of a television era.
The Magic Box was hosted by Eamonn Holmes and featured contributions from a host of familiar faces, from across channel divides.
It also revealed the winner of a public vote to decide Your Top Magical Moment, with the UTV clip of the 'Wee Man from Strabane' being crowned the winner.
George Cunningham's interview with UTV reporter Charles Witherspoon became the stuff of legends and has been shown all over the world, after he spoke at a mile-a-minute when asked for his opinion on his home town's high unemployment.
The Magic Box is available on the UTV Player for the next 30 days.
You don't have to resort to the tactics of Ma, Da and Uncle Andy to find out about the digital switchover - for more information, check out our DSO guide. You can also visit digitaluk.co.uk or call 08456 50 50 50.
