I was talking about the folks still on the fence, and for them the cost difference right now is not silly. $400 today is not chump change regardless of how long you want to amortize it.

Damn that's really disappointing - he's genuinely funny unlike that blowhard, in love with the sound of his own voice Gary McCord.

Won't be long until someone else (i.e. NBC) picks him up, but I...

*shrug* Women have been calling college football on ESPN for years, not seeing the big deal with letting one call baseball here. More power to her.

And really shouldn't have been with that finale. Jamal should be well and truly dead but certainly won't be if it's coming back.

Classic case of yet another show that has outlived its premise.

LOL there's TONS of technical stuff that you can quibble with in this show, as many of us that lived this stuff have done here.

You have to be willing to put it all aside, unfortunately. It's not...

Exactly - the price for a whole-home Tivo solution right now makes all the difference vs. WMC. After 9/21 when current sale ends, maybe this thread will die. But I will say that some of the...

No, to connect multiple TVs you buy Tivo Minis which can access all the recorded content. And a new Xbox 360 (current extender) costs more than that.

You really need to do more research before...

My prediction is that it will play out just like SoA - lots of gratuitous violence for the sake of it and little else to show in the end. But I'm in, at least for a while.

Not to mention with soccer you get to see all those pansy players taking dives to draw cards anytime someone brushes up against them. Is this where we're headed?

Kind of dumb that they didn't use the normal forward/back buttons for skip though, it's annoyingly non-intuitive to have to remember to use right/left for Plex instead.

That's a ridiculous argument, Jack had the same level of equivalent competition in his day that Tiger did in his. Which is to say, both generally stood head and shoulders over their eras.
