That's some praise from an outfit which can't even get its show on the air :D

Yeah, and funny how the Replay was out first but Tivo invented it.... But since when does anyone actually trust and believe the corrupt and political choices made by the Academy, everyone knows that money talks and they have never been fair or evenhanded in their selections.

Yeah, they've had some bad luck with the timing of that, haven't they? Now they're shooting for Nov. 4th, apparently...

It's all crap, and we're all in it together.


Then again, and getting back to the subject at hand, it's not at all surprising that the gang of juggling clowns went for the box with the juggling clowns.


Not that it matters a heck of a lot anyway, but it is nice that the idea of the DVR is getting some sort of public visibility.


But far be it for me to stand in the way of what could well shape up into a boffo holy war.


Bring it on!

toots, who are the combatants in this "holy war?." Do you mean between UTV and TIVO?, as Replay is going in an entirely different direction than the others with their 4Ks. Targeting the high end few as opposed to the mainstream low end for the others.

Check out the link that toots posted a little ways up... you'll see that apparently both Tivo and Replay won an Emmy. No word about UTV...

But then Emmy's (or Oscars or Grammys) rarely reflect what in reality is the best. If they did, Gilmore Girls would be a shoo in and ER would be off the air. I think someone who's lived with both Tivo and Replay for years now could answer that from a better perspective.


Since I just nominated myself here as a legitimate Emmy voter, I say, for 2001, Replay/SS hands down. For 2002 I predict the Replay 4K.

Oops, missed it before. Congratulations on the Doctor, Doctor Toots. We've missed your input!
