FYI...



POLL: DVR growth to TOP HDTV, VOD

By Phillip Swann


The digital video recorder will ultimately be the most successful new TV technology, according to an exclusive TelevisionWeek survey of 100 TV executives. In fact, the executives chose the DVR by a 2-to-1 margin over the second-place finisher, high-definition TV. The DVR, which is offered by companies such as TiVo and EchoStar, permits viewers to pause live TV, fast-forward past commercials and record up to 80 hours of programming without a videotape.


"DVRs will be most successful because they solve a real problem for real people," said a VP of a TV programming company. "My show gets interrupted or my show isn't on when I want to watch it-these are real issues that the DVR solves."

And not one mention of ReplayTV. Hopefully DNNA will change that sad situation.

No, I prefer uppercase. It just didn't come out that way when I signed up.

There are people who think they see dirty words in hex.


It's just an octal allusion.

isn't that supposed to be 'geeks'? i thought nerds were the people who studied a lot and geeks were the ones obsessed with stuff that's insignificant to joe.


anyway, i've considered myself a geek for a while, but being able to read binary and/or hexadecimal is way outta my league. :p
