Or maybe it would okay if we had a slightly larger buffer. Oh no, I just came out of the closet and told the world that I'm a newbie or less than experienced master of Tivo, just a person that has had a Tivo for about 10 years or so and never let it rule my viewing. I wonder how "experienced users" ever add to their viewing interests if they never watch live TV? Most of the programs we like end up going the way of the dodo after a few years and we seek new shows to watch. Suggestions seem to try want me to watch some crud about vampires or cooking shows about the best way to eat a snake. Plus I'm not prepared or willing to allow a box to take over my life to the point that I can't walk away for more than 30 minutes. There's many times that I've turn on the TV only to catch the end of something that started 34 minutes earlier and the missing 4 minutes is critical to the whole plot. Would have nice to see those missing few minutes. If I was more experienced (read spent a good part of my whole life programming my Tivo) then I guess I won't have to worry I'd be watching Big Brother's program list of suggestions (eat more snake) and could be safe within a cocoon of Tivo fed to me programs. Or in my case more of my wife's Hallmark or Lifetime movies. EEK!!!
