I love my DVR (Digital Video Recorder). We’ve had it for about 5 years and I don’t think I could go back to recording tv shows with a tape. Losing them or accidentally recording over a show, or worse..recording over the end of a show is a pain in the butt that I don’t want to re-visit.
You see, we rarely watch anything in real time. Who has time to watch Oprah everyday at 5PM? And some of the episodes are bla. Besides, I can’t STAND commercials. I love that we can fast forward through every blasted one of them.
We don’t watch tv during the day, but I have to admit that the evenings are my time to sit back and view the boob tube. It’s also a great time to laundry.
This is the groovy tv guide.
We live in the sticks so we don’t get cable and we’ve chosen not to have satelite. So, yes. Those are ALL of the channels we get. And still, we manage to find shows to watch. And this tv guide thing is just somehow downloaded to the DVR. Like magic. Magic to me since I don’t understand the technology of it! However it happens it makes it so easy to record a show. You see how Morning News is selected? All I have to do to record that show is push ‘record’. No more manually entering start and stop times. And if I want to record it every week I push ‘record’ twice. Love it!
When you do record shows it saves them and you can view them whenever you want. Check it out…
So, that’s my favourite gadget. They’re a bit more expensive then a regular DVD player but so worth it.
