Well, if you have a PC with a tuner card, you can record the game on the HDD and then run 'some program
' that adam1991
has mentioned in the past - around the time the ReplayTV Guide was 'Going Away', IIRC - that removes the commercials *AFTER* the program has completed recording. Then you can burn it to a DVD and watch it as soon as you've completed the entire process.
OR you can record the entire game on a DVDR w/HDD, like the Magnavox 2160A/513/515, MANUALLY edit out all the commercials, burn the game to a DVD (1 or 2) and then watch it.
OR you can start recording the game on the DVDR w/HDD at the beginning, but don't begin watching it via 'Chase Play' until ~1 hour later. Every time a commercial pops up, you grab the remote and SKIP FORWARD 1 minute (or 30 seconds - however you programmed it) until you're back into the game.
OR you can do the same as the previous idea but with a TiVo.
Otherwise, as the majority of ReplayTV owners already know, Automatic
'Commericial Advance' is great - so great it's probably one of the main reasons ReplayTV / DNNA / SonicBlue (pick a year, pick a name) is gone and TiVo is still around.
If you want a more extensive 'Technical' discussion about 'Commercial Advance', CLICK on my FAQ in the STICKYs and read the extremely technical information at Molehill.Org posted by one of the original ReplayTV Gurus, the unfortunately now late Todd Larason. I noticed that in the ~20 minutes it took me to compose / proofread / edit my reply, adam1991 has popped in TWICE!
