The Dreaded Time Change

I'm really starting to dislike the time change....>:-[

I've barely made any dent in changing all my clocks this morning....almost like I need to write out a list to make sure I don't miss any now....

Meanwhile...since accessing the service menu clears the clock on my TV, this is the time I check how many hours of life I've used so far. It reads 1754 hours. Weren't these things rate for 8000 hours? I guess I'll hit or break 2000 by the time it is 1 year old. Wonder if I should still plan on getting a spare this year.

Next I checked my SA8000HD DVR, while the clock updates automatically....recordings have a way of not working after the time change. Though I created all my recordings to not be time dependent. Sometimes it records a little more than it should, but for the stuff I record with is tolerable.

It mainly records primetime broadcast HD, with the occasional movie from HBO-HD and SHO-HD...there was one movie scheduled for early this I checked that. Instead I was greeted by the dreaded LIST failed message. ARGH. Had to hard boot it again. Calling support won't help, because this is all they'll do to close it as resolved. It has to stay down to make them interested in fixing it. Its not like having a box with a harddrive going 24/7 can't be done.

I did use to record shows from SHO-HD....except it was only the one....Dead Like Me. So, I keep wondering why I keep the subscription.... Of course, I'm also paying for HD-Gold, which they threw in for a 1 month free trial....and I hardly ever watch anything from those channels either....

Oh well, back to updating clocks.

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.
