Stupid DVR

February 5, 2004

I arrived home all ready to watch tonight's new Angel episode only to find that my DVR faied to record the episode, because it chose to record American Idol, which ran 30 minutes into Angel. This needs either a way to give certain shows preference, or I need to get one of those snazzy two tuner dealies...

Update: Replay's Internet Video Sharing feature is way cool, and an effective rememdy for this type of problem. Plus, "You're Welcome" was one of the best episodes of Angel to date.

All in all, this is merely a result of user error. I could have programmed the Replay to make sure it recorded Angel (by setting up a guaranteed recording for first run episodes, instead of just grabbing all of the first run and syndicated episodes...)

The automatic commercial advance feature is very hard to give up.

eeh. or you could just use tivo's 30-second skip easter egg.
