They live near a big city, but *none* of their PBS stations run LW. So every other week or so, they get a DVD in the mail from me with 2-3 shows on it. Fortunately, they decided that the DVD format appears to have some staying power, so they have a player. Still do all their own time-shifting on VHS, though.
As I've commented before, I have one of my DVDRs hooked into the stereo system with a Sony XDR-F1HD tuner feeding straight into one of the line inputs to time-shift music programs from the local NPR station. Sure, I could do all this with a PC and the Internet, but my present setup is easy to use and reliable and does exactly what I need.
So a lot of those Verb AZO discs will go on the Champagne Music Making trail to keep a couple of retirees happy!
And as of 32 seconds ago, those same 16x AZOs we bought for $18-20 last week are still going for $29.99 in both retail and FFP. It pays to keep an eye out and strike when the price is down.
