It is amazing how different it is to watch live TV after having gotten used to DVRs (in my case Vista Media Center). Having a digital video recorder grab a copy of what we want to watch ahead of time is very helpful. I really, really don’t care for commercials and being “forced” to sit through them is frustrating. On Wednesday I was watching Game 1 of the World Series with Mimi (who is in town for a few days) and quickly lost interest in the game when my time shifting caught up with the actual game (i.e. I couldn’t skip forward anymore). Being able to quickly move through the breaks is very nice. Then there is the side benefit of not being surprised by the raunchiness of some advertisers. In the end, watching less “live” TV makes you want to watch less “live” TV. Two thumbs (way) up for DVRs.
