I never seem to record the shows and then i miss something. Im not used to being able to record the shows that i like to watch in case something comes up. Do you record your shows that you watch? Now that im thinking about this i should go and record american idol for tonight so that i dont miss it.

Yes, I have my dvr set to record several shows. Sometimes 3 or 4 a night. That way, after my hubby goes to work, I can watch my shows. Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch up and watch them all, but I have nothing else to do lol.

I will dvr certain shows, usually The Closer and Law & Order: SVU. Occasionally I'll record other shows, but those are the main two that I record religiously. I used to record The X-Files, but now that it is off air and on dvd I bought all the dvds. It sure freed up a lot of space!

I have my DVR set to record all my favorite shows. I even have it set to record a few shows that I only watch occassionally. I figure if I don't want to watch them I can just erase them later. But, if there's a night where I am just relaxing and there's nothing on tv that I want to watch i can always watch those other shows. I also have a few keywords programmed into my DVR that if it finds those keyword in a title of a show it will record it. This has mostly to do with travel destinations. For example, one of my keywords is Hawaii. So if there's a travel show on hawaii, the DVR will record it without me actually manually programming it to do so. I love my DVR!

If I'm not going to be around to watch it, then I'll set my VCR to tape it. I don't just tape something if I'm watching it already, unless I know it's really good. Sure, I can watch a lot of shows on youtube, but it's not the same as watching it on a tv.

Yes we are able to record our shows. It's so great because I can watch them when I want and when I have time! I record the following: Days of Our Lives, American Idol, Lost, Lie to Me, CSI, and Heroes. =] The greatness of technology these days.

No, I don't record my favorite shows. I haven't been able to set my vcr to do so and I don't have tivo or a dvr, so I can't record any. When I was a kid sometimes my mom would record stuff if we were going to be gone. It would just start it's self, but now we can't figure out how to do it. Plus, there really aren't any shows that I am that into...
