I am a CSI New York fan, but sometimes on Wednesdays I go out and miss the show

at nine pm. There are also other shows that I miss because I was out. The shows do come in from Seattle three hours later making it midnight where I am. So sometimes if I am not tired, I will watch it. Other times, I will wait for the reruns. I could also wait to buy the DVDS but right now I am still saving for the DVDS from some shows I watched about ten yeara ago. So do you wait for the DVDS, watch the reruns, or stay up later at night to watch on a different time zone even though you will find it hard to get up in the morning?

I couldnt live without my DVR so I can watch my recordings whenever I have the chance. Plus it can record 2 channels at once so even if two of my shows are on at the same time I dont miss either.

We were looking at dvrs when we went to pay our cable bill. My husband does not know whether the shows like CSI are copy protected. The lady at the cable place said we can used bring in our old cable box and have it upgraded. I might do it for Father's Day, but I spent too much money. I do not know how it would work if one is watching one show and want to record another. We had a bit difficulty before digital, all those cords and everything and those plug ins.

We just have the ordinary cable box, not the one that records. We do have a vhs player but don't use it. So I guess that is something to get for Christmas, but we were thinking of getting a blue=ray player.

Stopped useing the VHS long time ago now I like the DVR for it records most times with out haveing to put them in every day and when the program comes back on after being gone awile it is programmed in already. Heard about the blue ray havent seen one yet so dont know what they do.

Blu-ray just plays. The DVrs here cost over $600 and I would rather buy the DVDs. Hate the commercials.

I never buy the DVDs. I think it's because once I watch something it may be years before I want to see it again. Oh, didn't you just say you are saving for the DVDs from older shows - now I would like that. I'm so darned broke and saving up for a few other things first though. We have a DVR (tivo) and I record a few of my favorite shows every night. Then when my husband gets home from work, we can watch them together. Before the DVR, I remember very well staying up late to watch my shows. I knew the consequences, but would watch anyway. Made for some very tired mornings.

I have two dvd sets to buy from The Profiler, and the last The Pretender one. They have a different cover here in Canada and I am rather suspicious that they may have altered some of it for our Canadian leftists view, so I will be ordering it from Amazon.com. I was going to buy it in Tacoma when we were there in August, but I did not have enough American Money with me and I did not want to charge it. I was so disappointed because well that was when our Canadian money was going up and we would have got it at a bargain. Yes, I really suffer when I stay up late.

My husband was a big fan of both the Profiler and the Pretender, especially the latter. He would probably enjoy a set of the DVDs. What do you think of the prices for these when you buy used on Amazon - they didn't look too bad.

I remember when the Profiler was over one hundred dollars, so the prices are quite good. I will be ordering one or two of them soon. I have all the Pretender except for the last one, and the movie and I have seasons two and four of the Profiler. I wanted to get the crossovers.

no if I miss the show I miss it. I don't have a dvd player, and I only have the one channel that shows it. So I either watch or miss any show.

I remember when we had only one or two channels and we had to add coat hangers to the antenna to get it to stretch a bit farther. Anyway DVd players are coming down in price and besides you have to afford to buy the dvds themselves to see them again.

I have satellite tv so have a DVR. I just set up a show to record and then I can watch it the next day when I have time. Love that DVR.

We really should get one of those DVRS. We just have the regular digital cable. Of course that would mean that my husband cannot keep flipping channels. That sort of defeats the purpose. I mean you have to watch the station you are watching, or can it be programmed like those old vhs used to be. I will have to find out when we finally get one. Then I can watch it when I am free.

Actually Dish Network installed 2 DVRs for my system because we have TVs in 2 rooms. So I set up my shows to record on tv2 and we watch tv 1 together. That way I can watch mine on whichever one I want on my own time. It works out great for us.

I love my CSI's! Sometimes I have to go without though if there is something hubby wants to watch. I don't mind, I'm usually a tv hog and know that I should be respecting his needs too. TV is pretty much just background noise for me, so if I miss it, I don't get too upset. CSI's are shows that you can skip one week and watch the next without losing an ongoing plot too easily.

If we do not get it, we will wait for the reruns. My husband was on afternoon shift, so now he is catching up on the shows and episodes he missed. Trouble comes when they conflict with a show I want to watch.

CSI NY, CSI Miami, and Without a Trace are the 3 shows that I usually miss because I do have to get up early..But I saw the CSI NY last night, because sometimes I am able to stay up..

I do not watch Without a Trace, because another one of my favorite shows is on at the same time. So usually if I miss it, I have to wait until the reruns come on. Some of the shows are so good, that I wish we could get a DVR or get them on DVds, but I could not afford all my favorites shows on DVD. There are some I have not ordered from years ago .

I too am a fan of most of the CSI programs. It comes on here at 10:00pm. I some time will watch them on the internet. There are other shows that I watch this way too.

The evil CRTC up here blocks them and will not let us watch them on the internet. Besides, I would prefer to watch it on a wide screen rather than my regular computer screen. So I either have to watch when it is on in the Tv, wait for the reruns, or save for the DVDs. We do not have a DVR yet. We should get one. They are on sale for this month.
