I've heard of them and heard people speak of them, however never seen one live. I'm really excited about it, as Digital cable is also a step up :)

Next is HD, but that will be far off :(

Cool.


I think if I ever got cable again I would go that route, or just record it onto the compy.

HD rocks..

Right now, I don't have cable or dish - pulling OTA reception. I only wish I could record in HD but don't want to build my own PVR because at some point I'll probably finalyl give in and get cable/dish/direcTV/etc and would probably pull their version of the DVR.. and tiVo doesn't have an HD capable recorder yet (unless you go through DTV).

I had DVR with dish network for a while now. I love it - It's a shame the cable companies charge twice as much for it as dish though. Oh well, with them losing so many customers to satellite I can see why they keep raising there prices ..

If we didn't have a DVR at home, I probably wouldn't get a chance to watch any TV shows since everything I watch airs during the week when I'm on campus. It's a huge boon. :D

Slingbox Nets, That way you can watch the stuff you want on your computer. Although, having a DVR spoils you, you will never go back to regualr tv after having one.

See - I have stopped watching TV to a point since I started at ESPN. Working from 6p-3a is kind of a buzzkill, because I forget to tape stuff all the time. I can go weeks ahead of time, recored an entire series, life is good :cool:

It is indeed.

Worst part about it now is I hardly get to spend time with the woman I adore and love - but - we are working through it pretty good. I wake up early when she goes to work in the morning, we have breakfast together and sometimes I go back to bed. I schedule all my stuff (freelancing, appointments and such) around days when she works, so our days off I try to keep clear - which is 2 days a week.

It's not great, but we are BOTH putting in the effort, so that helps.

This is my dream, and a great opportunity. Have to pay my dues on that shift first, and it's the busiest since all the primetime TV airs at that time.

It does save a ton on child care, but, what it also does it make it where the one working can't see them that much. Take me for example; I work second shift. My daughter goes to school, when she is walking in the door I am leaving for work.

Happens alot, and when you get home she's already in bed.

I hope to be on first shift by the time kids pop out :s
