We've had the TW DVR about two months. L used it to record all the Fashion on 7th Ave shows when we got it. Now we use it to record the shows we would have watched anyway but something else got in the way,
but we don't keep any show for longer than a week or so. I can't imagine wanting to go back and watch "What not to wear.?" (Can you tell L is in the rag business?)
It's a delight to be able to decide that you would like to see CBS Sunday Morning on the following Monday or, as happened last night, I froze
the World Series in it's tracks in order to go yank the steak out of the broiler.
(I came back into the living room, hit play and the Yanks struck out of the inning, then I just hit LIVE and the real-time game came back on after about five seconds of the commercial break.. .. No time lost and the steak was medium rare.
What they've done Wilso, is allowed the home viewer to have instant replay. The programming is recorded on a disc and can either be saved or played back whenever one chooses. We've played back the previous two minutes of a show when the two of us lose track of what's going on. (We're terrible TV watchers, we read, play chess and frolic with the cats when we are supposed to be in gaped wonder over whether the NY police detective will find the clue he needs to nab the prep before the strikingly beautiful District Attorney takes over the case. )(yawn)
