I love my U-Verse, I really do.
But they are big fat hairy LIARS.
All that talk about taping 4 programs on your DVR, LIES.
It cannot be done.
It doesn't even say in small print anywhere that it cannot be done. Well maybe it does, but I haven't seen any tiny print anywhere that says we only say you can tape 4 shows at once so you get all excited about our product and then when you get it installed the disappointment sets in.
The reality is this:
You can watch ONE HD program and tape ONE HD program simultaneously.
Or you can turn off the TVs and tape TWO HD programs.
Which, on a Tuesday night, when there is a Cubs' game and BlackHawks playoff hockey and Parenthood and The Good Wife, presents a problem! Add into that the fact that I start watching LOST 15 minutes into the episode so that I can fast forward through commercials and you have a recipe for disaster!!
Rewind to Tuesday night at 8:15, I'm all comfy upstairs, remote in hand, ready to watch LOST. I hear loud profanity coming from my family room. Apparently someone somewhere decided that it would be a good idea to move the Cubs' game to another channel, a channel that doesn't come in on our set. Although my neighbor who has the same package as we do was watching the game just fine. More profanity, a phone call and poof, my TV, my LOST, one of my very few pleasures in life, is now a blank blue screen with some words that basically say, recording has been interrupted.
So I have 17 minutes of recorded LOST floating somewhere in U-Verse space, it's 8:22 and I am forced to watch the remaining LOST live with commercial interruptions and the closer we get to 9pm, the more jacked up the DVR will become.
I watched LOST a little sideways and it sucked! Not only the manner in which I watched, but the episode itself. SUCKED! For one, I kept looking at Foster Mama and thinking she was Peg Bundy, who is Locke's girlfriend and thinking WTF. Turns out it wasn't Peg Bundy, it was CJ. Oh my head!
Someone has to protect the light? MIB never had a name?
Who is Foster Mama and how did she get to the island?
There are only 3 1/2 more hours of LOST and I fear it's going to end badly.
