Woohoo – today is one year after my last blog entry – making this one of the busiest blogs in cyberspace.
Ok – so here I am at my computer, waiting for our DirecTV HD Tivo. "Clearing and deleting everything. This will take about an hour."
You see, lately the Tivo has really been underperforming our expectations – and it had done such a good job of setting our expectations so low to begin with this was quite a feat in itself.
It’s only taken two weeks of shows pausing, not responding to remote clicks until 5 minutes later, and then not responding to corrective remote clicks for another five minutes for us to concurr as a family that perhaps something isn’t going well with the Tivo. I figure this is probably the Linux/Tivo performance equivalent of hard drive fragmentation… and since the (supported) options for improving Tivo performance are limited, I’ve opted to go for the "Reset and delete everything and start over" option.
To ensure we get back into our old viewing habits, I’ve captured a list of our Season’s Passes. Since I have nothing better to do – and apparently neither do you – here they are for your reading pleasure.
Note the top four shows – if you haven’t seen any of these I highly recommend you check them out.
