    I just got this eyetv thing for my computer and I love it. It is pretty much a tivo for your computer. Setup was a no brainer, even for me. And I havent watched a commercial in 3 days.

    I love the feature where you can start recording something and go do something else for a while and then start watching what you are still recording, and skip the commercials when they come up. I watched the live UFC fights last night, the show was 2 hours, but with all the skipping of commercials and the talking between fights, it only took 45 minutes to watch.

    I chose the version that has the external device do all the encoding work so the program only takes up about 5% of processor power.

    It can even convert it to ipod format if you want. A one hour show ends up being a little over 1 gig in size, when in the raw format, I havent converted anything to ipod yet so I dont know how much it shrinks.
    I’m glad I got the 500 gig hard drive when I got this computer.

    Maybe when I’m all grown up and earning a lot of money I’ll be able to afford a PC to play my games on and a Mac to do all the serious stuff with.

    There’s a slogan for Apple right there.

    Macintosh : The thinking mans computer.
    Macintosh : The right choice for business.

    Or

    Macintosh : For when it starts raining. 😀

    Sorry for the last one, I could’nt resist it, and I’m not anti-apple.


    If it doesn’t work, jam a screwdriver in there and jiggle it about.
