      The Discussion

        Woot Woot , CH9 Live @ MIX !!

        Hey!  To set the record straight, *I* didn't record Access Hollywood.  My TiVo recorded those things as Suggestions.  That's what the (S) appended to the tweet means.  I have little to no control over it.  Tongue Out


        Feel free to make fun of the non-(S) recordings though.  There are plenty of crappy shows I actually DO watch.

      • User profile image

        Ok, since the "S"s are off limits, how about...

        Cheaters: "Husband has another woman"

        Cheaters: "Boyfriend has found someone new"

        Cheaters: "Wife gives her love to someone new"

        See?  Told you I watch plenty of crappy shows you can make fun of.  Smiley

      • User profile image

        LOL, Isn't it worse that your Tivo has decided based on your TV tastes that you would like shows like Access Hollywood?!

      • User profile image

        It's not based solely on taste.  For a while, it thought I loved Univision and Spanish television.  Though, El Sabado Gigante is pretty great.

      • User profile image

        Codeplex supports Mercurial?

      • User profile image

        Wow apparently it does.

      • User profile image

        OK, so it took me 8 episodes to notice... but I'm lovin' the increase to 1280x720 for the Hi-Res WMV download.

      • User profile image

        Twittering Tivo is the latest result of more disk space. I am glad that in the future I will be able to show the public how much I love to watch TMZ make fun of people.
