TiVo DeathMatch

Tuesday, April 10, 2007 | 06:30 PM

Yesterday seemed to be NYT day! I mentioned the Nasty blogs article, as well as the NYT's blogging efforts this morn. And today, we discussed the proliferation of online financial video.

Have a look at an amusing animation from the NYT's David Pogue.

Surprisingly, David does not mention TiVo's vastly superior design and delightful user interface. Every Cable DVR I've touched has been about 5 years behind TiVo

One of life's most frustrating things...aside from getting a tele-marketing call is working my comcast dvr.

My typical night looks like this.. I am watching a game then let's say I hit pause to take a pee break, but then it appears it didn't work so I hit it again it, and again it doesn't work. Next I hit the FF button but that didn't work either so I go back to hit stop and that doesn't work so I then start pressing buttons randomly wondering if any work (note - this happens nightly, it appears I am not smart enough to learn the techincal glitch's do in fact happen nightly). I digress...so after about 10 or so button push's and nothing happening the system catch's up to itself and goes through each command FF,pause, pause boom boom bling in less than two seconds. In the end it usually changes the channel and misses the entire next 30 seconds of play.

And yes I did swap for another cable box. Everyone experiences this.
