    Gotta vent - DVR troubles

    So, ever notice how when you schedule a program on your DVR, it sometimes cuts off the last couple of minutes?

    Well, my wife and I just encountered:

    Yeah, there are stations/programmes that do that on purpose... And sometimes "it just happens" with live stuff.

    Dunno what DVR you use, but I can set mine up to go X minutes beyond (or before) the regular schedule of the programme. Doesn't help you this time, but may be worth looking in to for repeat offenders.

    Thats really funny. I was watching TV at my girlfriends house, and it cut out at the EXACT same time. Seacrest said, "And the winner is..." and then a black screen popped up. I could care less about the show, but my girlfriend was freaking out. We were watching it live though. It turned out her mother was DVR-ing a show that ran from 9-10 and then one that ran from 10-11, and for those few overlapping minutes, the machine freaked out. I wonder if the network planned that to happen that way...

    I'm ashamed that I know this, but my wife was watching it. David won, not the little David the bigger one.

    I only like watching the audition shows at the beginning of the season.

    Cant you program it to shut off at 10:05 or something?
    you can do that with an old fashioned VCR!

    (I dont know anything about DVR's or TIVO..I record about one show a year, if that..with the circa 1990 VCR, still working fine..)

    LOL. David Cook <---the bigger one.

    I also only like watching the auditions at the beginning, but then I want to watch the finale as well. My husband was complaining how stupid they looked throughout the whole 2 hours last night, lol.
    Great Googly Moogly!
