It looks like Microsoft is following Google's and Mozilla's lead of changing major version numbers every time a minor change takes place in order to give the illusion of extra progress. Clearly...

Speaking of almost quitting, I've taken another step towards that blissful release: I'm now fast-forwarding through the Adalind parts. If she says, "My baby!" one more time, I'm really hoping that...

That's the problem: you're hoping CM will add a feature that no other DVR has, including TiVo. That sounds like a useful but exclusive feature for WMC, and it's only natural that PVR software would...

If you still can't find anything that indicates why the machine is locking up, try booting a Linux live CD/USB flash drive to see if that OS stalls a lot, too. If it does, your hardware is probably...

That depends on how the master is stored. If it's film, then encoding artifacts don't apply, since the master isn't digital. If the master is digital, it still probably has some level of compression...

That's the Xbox's fault, though. You should probably be asking MS for a fix, as that's more likely to happen than finding a special tuner that lets you work around the problem.

My guess is that Ward is going to take out Whitehall to become the new leader of the local Hydra branch. After all, he already took out Whitehall's second, even though Whitehall doesn't know it yet.
