I just found a couple web sites that broadcast live TV programming for free. Although not extremely good quality, I love the fact that I can watch almost any sports game on my computer for free. Heck, I can even get Leafs TV!!

Old Skool:

You should def. check out uncharted 2 on ps3 if you like 3rd person shooter/action games at all. It is an absolute blast. Most amazing game on PS3 to date in my opinion.

Yeah, if you go to metacritic and look at the scores they have like 20 perfect 100's from various raters. I think the official game website says that the game has received 24 perfect scores to date. I don't know if I would call it "perfect", but it is definitely worthy of 60 bucks.

Got it yesterday via Amazon. I'll fire it up after the ALCS game tonight - couldn't play last night since I was at the Yankee Stadium enjoying the game. \:\)

BTW, make sure you call Tivo for a deal. If you call them directly, they will deal with you. Just hint at "boy..it's a lot more than I thought....." and they will work with you.

Things looked promising when DirecTV had a Tivo box (killer combo), but then they discontinued it....



When was that? And was it just DirecTV, or did Dish Network have a Tivo combo as well? The reason I ask is because I had Dish Network probably 7 years ago, and the DVR that came with it was absolutely outstanding! By far the best DVR I've ever had the pleasure of using. It was so good at finding shows with simple keyword searches, stored 100 hours worth of programing on its hard drive, prioritized your favorites, and was a smap to record things WHEN YOU WANTED it to record things. For example, I had it recording new episodes of 'The Daily Show' once per day. When I dropped Dish Network and went to cable, their DVR recorded 'The Daily Show' like 7 times per day, and there was no way to change that. Believe me I tried 'first run only', 'once daily', 'no repeats', etc... nothing worked, everyday I had 7 'Daily Shows' recorded without fail.

The Dish Network DVR I had behaved the way you guys are discribing Tivo (I've never experienced Tivo ever) box also. Like I set it up to record MotoGP racing, and a week later I checked my recordings and I had every motorcycle race that played on any channel at any time of day for that whole week in my recordings... I was blown away!!! Unfortunately that experience was short lived because back then anyway Dish Network was very unreliable during inclimate weather. As soon as a rain cloud popped up the tv went out without fail. It got so frusterating I switched back to cable within a few months.

But cable DVR's could never touch the user friendliness of that Dish Network DVR by a long shot. My parents just recently subscribed to Dish Network and I immediately told them, "you are going to LOVE their DVR"!!!!! I still miss it, and I don't even have cable, a DVR, or any of that stuff anymore. I watch all of my programing (the 'Daily Show', 'Survivor', 'Twilight Zone', 'MotoGP' and every basketball, football and hockey game I can get my hands on) over the internet. I would like to get a DVR to record that stuff though. But I wonder, can you just buy some software to turn your computer into a DVR??? Seems like it would be a no-brainer!

Just out of curiosity, what time did you get home? I actually stayed awake the entire 13 despite the fact that we had a dinner party at our house earlier in the evening.
