    Oops, yes, I appear to have a repeat recorded in there.

    I'm not too far behind maybe 1-3 episodes per show I watch. Olympics is a great time to catch up on shows.

    About 9 episodes behind on the 1st season of House Of Cards, I am still on the fence on that. Enjoy it but I'm not one to sit and watch TV without doing something else, and I find myself getting lost on who/what and why on this show.

    I have all of Rectify, nearly the full season of Trophy Wife, and about 9 eps of The Crazy Ones still stacked up. Unfortunately, I'm moving in about two weeks and I'm not sure that Kabletown will let me take that DVR with me. (It's tied to my current roommate's account)

    At this time last year I think I had about 20-30 hours of space left on my 157 hour TivoHD. Now, I have close to 60 hours of space on that same Tivo, so I'm ahead of where I was last year but I am still so far behind. I have about 340 shows to watch. That doesn't even count the shows I am keeping up on.

    It would take too long to list all the shows I intend to catch up on, but here's my chart from the iTV Shows 3 app:

    The red grows faster than the blue - I've been losing the battle to catch up for quite some time now.

    At least I do not have any space worries now... our Roamio holds ~470 hours of HD, I think. :) The Olympics are not a good time for us to catch up. I'm too busy watching the Olympics!

    I'm actually amazed I caught up with the Olympics.. (until today). I'm MOSTLY only recording the NBC coverage.. err, I have SPs for various channels, but the NBC ones seem to be the events I want to watch. If I end up recording one of the others, I *sometimes* skim through it (I think one of the Mary Carillo segments was on one of the cable brodcasts? I may be mistaken).. But my Tivos HAVEN'T filled up with Olympics.

    I started with a clean slate about 3 weeks ago with a new DVR. Even with a much smaller list of shows recording, I'm far behind and getting more so with no end in sight. :p

    We got a new TiVo the day after Christmas. I just transferred the backlog over to it from the old TiVos. ;)

    I finally caught up with everything back in January and since then not a lot has been recorded. I turned to Netflix and binge watched a few series. Once the Olympics are over and all the networks start airing new episodes I'm sure I'll quickly start falling behind again.

    My To Do List is pretty light this week (7 hours to record the rest of the week), but cranks back up next week with 28 hours to record. There are several shows starting up next week: Amazing Race, Survivor, Hannibal, The Red Road, The Americans, and Vikings.

    Even after I gave up on about 5 shows over the holidays (due to the backlog) I am still falling behind and even with the Olympics I am not not making much headway on my backlog. Strangely, it is the sitcoms that are backing up. I am keeping up with the hour long shows.

    Sorry for the old bump, but I didn't think it needed a new thread.

    I don't know if it's all the streaming stuff, I can watch now so easily on my Bolt, (which I do) or just my viewing tastes have changed, but I just looked at my now playing list, and almost everything that is a "Series" has 5 or more episodes that I am behind.

    Well actually I do know, it is the streaming stuff. Bosch, Daredevil, 11.22.63, flaked, House of Cards, and with Baseball starting up in 2 weeks, it will only get worse.

    Same here. All this new streaming stuff, coupled with an increase in daily activities (pool, darts & bowling), make it impossible to keep up with the shows I record. I also seem to be watching more news lately to see what's going on with the election, which is cutting in to my TV time as well.

    I've tried QuickMode and don't really like it. It's pitch adjusted but it still seems like the audio is too fast and ends up dropping syllables or something.

    I have cut way back on the shows I record and I have been mostly keeping up this season. Like my previous post in the thread where I was backed up with sitcoms, the one show I am backed up on this season is The Grinder, which is the only sitcom I record other than Big Bang Theory.

    you would be served best buy lining up the recordings and doing summer showings. when i cut the cord years ago i found i didnt miss hardly anything. most is OTA and with the torrents i catch up with the handful of shows i do like but i dont know how anyone has time to watch anything anymore. i dont have kids and tons of activities and even i could not keep up with everything i may be interested in. i intentionally do not read about any new shows coming up in the next season so therefore i dont miss them.

    it works :)

    You literally don't know what you're missing!

    I'm finding skip mode has really sped up watching. You wouldn't think so but it adds up.
