Your Favorite Shows? Sometimes I'll Watch Them But I Am Sooo Spoiled Having A DVR To Record My 5 Diffrent Shows All At The Same Time And Then Watch Them Later That I Feel If It Was To Ever Go Out On Me, I Would Be Heartbroken! Anybody Else Feel Like This?

I am forced to watch. No longer having a dvr(dish was disappointing) I could record a few. But as you know that is tedious. I missed it the first few weeks we didn't have it. But I soon got over it. Technology is wonderful. But I noticed we can quickly become addicted to it.

Ok, I had the whole story typed out about why I don't have DVR but I decided to leave it at this instead: "...due to a miscommunication error, the wrong system was requested at the time of ordering our new Direct TV system and we no longer have DVR." Suffice it to say that hubby heard about that particular 'error' FOR DAYS. We do have a DVD recorder with a hard drive in it so I can record on that but it is NOT as convenient to do as the DVR so I usually don't bother. (Nor is it as easy to do as hubby would lead one to believe...HA) I was VERY spoiled with DVR- pause, rewind, skip commercials, record the rest of this program, etc...*sigh* We'll get the DVR again someday but who knows when- we can upgrade but to the tune of $100). To answer your question, though, I found I would still watch them when they were on for the most part but I used the features listed above to their full extent...lol

I don't have a dvr so I either have to watch the show or record it on vhs. The quailtiy on the tapes is horrible and sometimes all I record is squiggly lines that gets really frustrating. I would love to have a dvr and record a bunch of shows at one time.

I have to admit that I am very spoiled by my HD-DVR as well. I've taken to recording my favorite shows and watching them at my leisure as opposed to watching them live on television. It's just so much nicer to watch what I want, when I want... on *my* schedule. It's not out of the ordinary to DVR 10 or so episodes and watch them one after the other in a marthon, months later when all the shows are on hiatus or in reruns. The only part that irks me is if the networks don't run the schedule as it's listed, and I lose the last few minutes of the show. That is extremely frustrating, but thankfully doesn't seem to happen that often. DVR's rock, that's my final conclusion.

I don't have DVR, so I am stuck with either watching a show when it comes on or not watching it at all. I think if I had DVR I would probably watch way more television than I actually do. I guess I should be glad that I don't have it.
