Got it last weekend: HDTV and DVR service

| No Comments


Just in time for last Sunday's Daytona 500, we had HDTV service and a DVR (digital video recorder) installed last Saturday!

dishnetworkdvr.jpg Bill has decided that I am the person who deals with the electronic gadgets (computers, VCRs, stereos, and now HDTV and DVR) so I've been reading the user guide and playing with setting our favorite shows to be recorded. He will eventually have to figure out the basics, however!

Besides having a better picture and sound quality than VCR-taped shows, the best part about watching DVR-recorded shows is the 30-second fast-forward button! Most of the time, I hit it 6 times to get through commercials, so 1-minute fast-forward button would be even better!

And the quality of the HDTV picture is amazing. Facial stubble is very clear (very manly on some men, not so much on others). As is sweat, make-up, scars...
