Pretty cool video from technology writer David Pogue, NY Times writer called Video Recorder Death Match.
|Who will win? Tivo or the cable dvr box???|
I’ve come to depend on my my two TIVOS to capture and record all of the stuff I like to watch on TV.

|Tivo has been so dependable and for the most part does an excellent job of gathering my “must see” tv shows.|
Of course, being a Tivo guy going back at least 4 or 5 years (I’m guessing on this, maybe longer) I have had a few hiccups along the way.
It happened again last week.
On Thursday night Tivo let me down big time.
I was doing other stuff and did not think twice about whether Tivo was recording Survivor Fiji, one of my favorite shows. I have a season pass on my living room Tivo (the bedroom Tivo is more for talk shows and the occasional program that overlaps with other programs) for Survivor Fiji and do remember glancing at it and seieng the record light on so I assumed it was getting Survivor.
At around 50 minutes into the hour when I was ready to actually watch the program I go to Tivo and find it was recording some other B.S. and not Survivor Fiji! I quickly tried to find if it at least was on the right channel so I could record the buffer BUT no – it was on other channels! So I scrambled and caught the tribal council just as the vote was revealed!
What a bummer! TIVO let me down!
GEEZ! Does anyone have that episode on tape??? Or on their PC? (more…)
