You would think that the primary breadwinner, and the person most likely to go postal in a household, would being able to set the DVR to record shows he wants to watch and feel safe enough to trust them to be there when he looked for them.
I have two, count them, two DVR's. One in the family room, and one in the master bedroom. Yet If I try to record a show I often find that the recording was canceled... Sorry dad, but I want to watch another show while I record another show I want to watch... so I canceled yours... Wife does the same thing.
So now I don't watch much TV... instead I watch the shows through the net... on either the network channels or something like Fancast.com or hulu.com...
So if your a big TV exec... put your full episodes on the net... I will watch them... and the way they are set up on the net you can upsale the commercials as I must watch them to move on in the episode!!!
