ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Join Together for Hurricane Katrina Relief

Here's something new for me that I forgot to tell the world about. For the last few days, I've been doing two strange things.

  1. Watching Sports
  2. Watching Live TV

But, I had come across USAHD on my SA8300 DVR a while back, which apparently is largely added for US Open coverage (meaning I guess it'll be going away soon).

And, while channel surfing in HD one evening...I ended up watching it.

I guess the fact that it is in HD, was a big factor. Well, I guess this isn't totally strange, when I first got the HDTV....I was watching the Calgary Flames attempt to take the Stanley Cup. And, when coverage switched to ABC, I had to watch it live OTA. Though I wasn't a convert yet, so I was also recording in SD, and switch back and forth depending on where things were when I got to turning the set on (switching back to SD when I wanted to pause...)...though this was the catalyst for playing around with recording downconverted HD on a ReplayTV.

Back to the US Open, later I sacrificed stuff in my HD-DVR and scheduled recordings of some of the coverage, because I didn't want to miss the semi/final coverage and some of it wasn't at convenient times.

It was kind of intense and sad watching the women single semi's, perhaps I because I was rooting for Elena Dementieva and later Maria Sharapova &#59;D The match with Maria ran long, so I missed the ending...though I guess I didn't really miss anything. I felt like screaming that she should smile, but I wasn't watching that live....

Though it was good watching the final still....rooting for Kim Clijster....the rough part was that it ran over the scheduled slot, so the HD recording cut me off. Though I had padded the SD recording of it on my ReplayTV. (there is no USAHD OTA :..( )

Boy, it was really terrible having to watch the remainder of that in SD. My interest in continuing to watch faded pretty much after that. And, I deleted the rest of my SD and HD recordings...though I did watch part of the women's mixed finals. After all, got to see Elena again :yes:

Time Warner Update

Well, they came and swapped my bad SA8000HD for an SA8300HD.

Hopefully things will be better from now on &#59;D

The only hitch other than remembering what all I was recording on it, etc.

Is that I came home just a couple of minutes before the 12-2 appointment window. When I got to my apartment and looked down, I noticed that there was TWC van sitting infront of the apartment. Now between my actual door and the van are a couple of trees, so it isn't like he's watching to see if I come home etc.

So, finally I go down and see when he's going to come up. And, he gives me the usual that he didn't know I was home and why I don't answer my door when he knocked.

And, once again, I came home from work specifically for my appointment window..and he didn't knock during the time. If he had knocked when I wasn't home (before the scheduled time), of course, I wasn't going to answer. :**:

WiRNS, Zap2It and TWC

Well, this morning my ReplayTVs that depend on WiRNS for guide data wouldn't update.

SQL exception during the update.....don't know if it is because of my changes or because Zap2It changed the lineup of one of the guides. (they removed channels 80-96...rather than move then to 1100+, which is okay since I can live without seeing them on my ReplayTV). But, they failed to make the other changes. Changes that Time Warner had mailed me about back in November that would take effect today.

The big one is they moved BBC America from digital 108 to Standard (analog) 74. Without the guide updates, from both Zap2It and DNNA...I'm missing shows on BBC America now.

WiRNS seemed to hang at Purging guide data...so my first guess is it is related to the lineup change. Since I didn't touch the database structure to make my changes.

Though there is a problem when it fetches the guide data from my ReplayTV...so that's probably my fault.

SA8000HD DVR: Passport 1.5.159

Link: http://www.lhaven.net/sa8000hd

This morning, while processing Poopli requests, I noticed that my SD STB had been rebooted during the night. Fortunately nothing scheduled to record in the early morning today, so nothing affected.

I don't track versions on the Pioneer STB, so I don't know if it changed or not. But, it made me wonder if the HD DVR had been upgraded. And, sure enough it is now Passport 1.5.159.

Digital Cable Outage

Went to sit down to watch some HD programming from last night, to find a shock. :o

Letters were scrolling across the front of my DVR.

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.
