Gotta keep the profit margin up and the content thin.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

remember back in the mid 90's they had tvs that had "smart sound" to eliminate that. apparently it wasnt that smart because that shit never made its way into the 2000's

for the first time in about three years ive been on day shift (from mids and such) and am just now beginning to enjoy my 61'' 1080p tv which i purchased over a year ago...and realized how much happier i was just playing games and dvd's/blu-ray on it in the past rather watching commercials.

i got dvr

I've never heard of "smart sound". Whatever it is I wish it would come back, some of these cable station's comercials are really loud especially SpeedTV.

i love when i DVR and it cuts off the last couple minutes. Thats when you constantly need to remind yourself to make that adjustment prior to recording.

i made my own DVR. i set up a smallish computer and have 2, dual channel tv cards, giving me 4 channels to record from, at the same time. with a 500gb hard drive, thats like 200 hours of recording. the program i use is beyond tv, and it works pretty well. 3 of my inputs are just standard cable (channel 1-100) and the other input is from my cable box with all the premium channels. with over 200 shows it records the new episodes from. i never watch comercials anymore. i also have xm radio, becuase i hate comercials =)
