I missed a show on Sunday!

I'm already thinking of getting another ReplayTV.....

I'm watching much more TV than I did before my RTVs...so I need more to handle conflicts than I did before :o

My switch back to Time Warner from Adelphia coincided with my first RTV....Sci Fi wasn't available from Adelphia....so that's one area of increase....plus I'm watching other networks much more as well...such as G4TechTV, Lifetime, Bravo, BBCA, HBO/SHO, etc. that I probably wouldn't have ever thought about getting before.

Not sure if it was just the RTVs' fault....I blame IVS. I wouldn't have discovered some of these shows if I didn't see people requesting them :roll:

Anyways, I'm scratching my head wondering how I missed a show on Sunday....turns out it was because DVArchive 3.0 flagged the wrong show as the conflict loser (so I have extra recordings of that show, but not the one that actually lost) Otherwise, I could've rescheduled it correctly. The problem was a show that normally is a 8pm, shifted to 9pm....

Of course...when fall rolls around....I can already see that I'm going to have trouble...with all the non-broadcast networks that I also watch now. My four machines were:

1. CBS/PAX, 2. FOX/UPN, 3. NBC/WGN, 4. ABC/Stargate

But, where do I put, PBS, USA, TNT, TBS, SciFi, Bravo, DISN, TOON, etc. I've been sprinkling them about right now....but the conflict situation has been progressively getting worse.

5. is digital cable, and 6. is OTA HDTV....but I guess I'm gonna make 6 standard cable as well now. Though should I share it or not?

I wouldn't mind another box on digital cable....but so far nobody has come out with cablecard STBs yet (but hopefully when they do, it'll be controllable by ReplayTV).

Drive upgrading....

Well, I've been busy slowly upgrading my ReplayTVs....it is a bit of a hitch that I originally only planned to upgrade on RTV per month until I did them all...and that I been doing one about every other week.

Also interesting looking at my recent order history from ZipZoomFly.com

With the exception of the 250GB Serial ATA drive...all of those purchases were ReplayTV related. The 120GB drive, the Athlon CPU and memory went to upgrading one of my DVArchive servers. Actually the 250GB SATA drive also contributed....it displaced a 120GB drive that went onto my other DVArchive server.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
