Oh No!


For the last 3 years I have recorded all the shows I watch with a DVR. I can't watch regular live TV. I must fast forward through commercials. It has allowed me to watch a lot more tv than I ever have before. Good and Bad! I am a reality show junkie.

While sick on the couch Friday night, lightning struck my precious DVR.
After an hour on the phone with the Direct TV people, they set up a service appointment.
My new DVR arrived this morning. They used to pull the programming card from your old machine and stick it in the new one. All your programs saved and you were ready to go. Not so much! New card= new machine. I got Nothing! No shows, no movies, no schedule.

I am sad...

I think I would have a moment and breakdown!!! Our DVR lets me control what the kids watch and when. Letting them watch live TV might send me postal. Then I am subject that whatever is on ... not so good for me, or them!!!

I am sad for you!!!

I'm with ya sister. our dvr dies regularly and my little person and myself (so fun!) have been on tv a few times - so of course, we recorded the shows on said crappy dvr. I totally flipped out when the new dvr came and they said we were going to lose our tv clips. SO not cool.
