  • I Just Figured Out How To Save Tons Of Time!

    Okay.......I have more time than ever, based on a revelation.

    If we tape (record) a lot of shows we regularly watch, and watch them afterward, just think of all the time we can save via fast forwarding through commercials. I read somewhere it's equivalent to about 36% for an hour long show.

    Sure, there are negatives as in:

    1) If someone tells you what happened before you got to watch......especially a game!!!

    2) When do you go for something to snack on, or when do you hit the old washroom??

    3) What if YOU are one of those interesting folks who love commercials.....in that case, just fast forward through the show itself (and no offense, but you may not be a good person to have coffee with)

    I would offer another time-saver.........don't read my posts.

    PVR...I do it all the time already!! Even if a show is on I want to watch I start recording it and jump in later so I can FF the commercials. :thumb:

    Football is exempt, live only.

      PVR is wonderful!!!!

      Even though NFL games should be live, I believe you can save almost 50% of the time, if you skip thru all the breaks in action, including huddles. Not the same, but it sure speeds up things when there are time outs and reviews and so on!

          It's about 40-45 mins of show time for each hour long tv show, or so I've noticed when watching tv episodes on dvd.

          I had to talk my wife into a DVR about 2 years ago. About 3 months after that, she refuses to watch live TV anymore.

                  SAT study question?

                  Canadian bacon, is to bacon,

                  as PVR is to DVR?


                  I pretty much only watch TV on on-demand and netflix. Then people are like "did you see that commercial for that new thing?" and I say no.

                    Canadian bacon is actually back bacon. It's more or less pork tenderloin.

                    So if that holds true, then PVR would be something completely different.

                    Just sayin'.










                    Yeah, I had to be THAT guy.
