Neglected TiVo


This recent post from Neil Gaiman, had me thinking about TiVo. My TiVo, for all intents and purposes, has been off for the last month. Since I've moved into my new place, I haven't bothered to resubscribe to cable.

Being without the TV has freed up some time (although not much, since TV seems to be something I multitask to). TiVo (when it's working) becomes a time displacer -- rescheduling my shows so that I can watch them all in a block.

While I've missed watching some of the shows, I also realize that the turnaround time for TV shows to make it onto DVD is so fast now that I don't really feel like I am missing very much at all. There are some exceptions to this rule, but in general, TV shows come out almost immediately onto DVD before the start of the next season.
