Interestingly, there isn't any thread on the AVS programming forum about this show.

I thought it was about the worst show CBS ever presented. Just awful.

I assume you use a program like eac3to.exe

But I can't quite figure out how to parse the command.

Best I came up with is in the result log:

eac3to v3.24

You nailed it.

I don't particularly like players using "sob stories" in Survivor. But, I don't vote and they do.

It was a good season, and any of the final three were OK, IMO.

I think all DVRs have a 30sec skip, and most NFL teams don't use a Peyton Manning pace. So skipping 30sec per play and 2min per ad break, you get through a game very fast. Of course, Santa could...

I wasn't aware epg123 has a problem with capture cards. I have two Colossus cards, on two PCs, and they get the SD guide fine. And SD is so much better than Rovi.

So, who would you suggest pick the teams for the conference title game? The popular vote?

OTOH, OSU will be rested for the playoffs. Then, OSU vs Bama for the crown.

OSU needs the rest.
