Mine can record ~ 300 hours worth of stuff onto the hard drive. So I can 'tape' what I please and simply scroll through a menu to name it, edit it, and/or watch it later. You can burn the keppers to DVD at the touch of a button and delete the ones you've watch in three seconds flat. If the phone rings and you're in the middle of a show, press pause and it starts recordning instantly. And then when you come back from the phone you can just press play and watch it, pause it, fast forward it, at any point while it is still recording. And, the best bit by far, it recognises ad breaks! Truly. Click the chapter button as soon as the ads start and boom, you're at the beginning of the next segment of your show. I know! Doesn't it make you want to cry with happiness!
It has changed my life. Now I don't have to beg and plead and block one ear while listening with the other as my hubby sighs and grumbles and makes smart alec comments when I want to watch GREY'S ANATOMY and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE (my favourite summer show my a mile!) or other girly shows (BTW two weeks to go here in Aus so NOBODY tell me who wins!!!!!) I just tape everything, and watch it at my liesure. Usually as I eat breakfast, or sit down to lunch when I am at home writing. Perfect!
HOUSE (I could marry him, seriously - that dry wit, those blue eyes, all that damage)
UGLY BETTY (the ads look darling)
WEST WING (the final series is yet to play in Aus)GREY'S ANATOMY (McDreamy, McSteamy or McVet? Is it fair one woman has so much deleriously gorgeous choice?)
We are a tad behind the US so no spoilers please ;), but I would love to know what you guys see as THE must see TV shows of the year.
