Haha. When I was ten I’d always get upset with my parents for calling things by the wrong brand names.February 26, 2019 at 8:04 pm #833858
I’m into 2009 and the emergence of the third tivo. This is the most bonkers yet mundane thing I’ve ever read.February 26, 2019 at 8:17 pm #833860
FOUR TIVOSFebruary 26, 2019 at 8:24 pm #833862
This is absolutely ridiculous. Do these people not know that you can stream absolutely everything online?February 26, 2019 at 8:33 pm #833863
He started the thread into 2003! You couldn’t stream most content online then or for most of the thread. If you wanted content around to re-watch at your convenience you needed a Tivo or Replay TV.
There’s just something strangely grand about the scale of this discussion. Fifteen years!February 26, 2019 at 8:34 pm #833864
I have probably had six Tivos and a few third party DVRs on that time, including a custom one made from my computer.February 26, 2019 at 8:42 pm #833865
I’m into 2013 and they have switched to pyTivo, she’s efficiently filling that up too by the looks of it. I’m just letting out intermittent gleeful cackles at this point.February 26, 2019 at 8:56 pm #833866
… aaaaand five tivos.February 26, 2019 at 8:59 pm #833867
I’m calling it. Divorce = 5 TIVOS.
Ex. “This is clearly at 5 TIVOS, LW. MOA.”February 26, 2019 at 9:11 pm #833869
Five tivos plus god knows how many extra hard drives he’s added. A commenter did the maths: “Based on what Tim has said, his wife has well over 10 TB of archived video. At an average of 2 GB per hour, that’s over 5,000 hours of video. That’s enough content for nearly TEN YEARS of viewing at a rate of 8 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.”
I’m near page 66, the end is nigh.February 26, 2019 at 9:14 pm #833870
Aww divorce announcement. Wife asked who gets the tivos.February 26, 2019 at 9:34 pm #833872
At least she’ll have some shows to watch in her post marriage life
