    All of Team Sweden's games in the preliminary round will be in that timeslot. How can I set my PVR to record a YouTube feed? Sad

    Assuming you don't know what "on demand" means, you'll be able to watch any game at any time after it's aired through the youtube channel as well.

    I wasn't trying to be mean. The guy's 50, so maybe he just doesn't know what "On Demand" refers to...I wouldn't expect my Dad to know, so I assumed Prags may not either... Smile

    Prags lack of response tells me he's rolling his lawn or hosing his driveway, in the rain.

    I guess we've seen the last of him for awhile then because:

    a) He smashed his VCR to bits because it kept blinking "12:00" in spite of multiple attempts to set the clock.

    b) He's gone to the "Radio Shack" to get a new one.

    Notice how I wrote "the" in front of "Radio Shack." Beer

    Stunned at not being able to locate the local Radio Shack anymore, Prags has returned home and set up his Camcorder to record his computer monitor, which is permanently tuned to the YouTube channel (explaining his absence here). Determined not to miss any World Championship hockey, he has set his alarm at two-hour intervals so he can awaken and swap out the tape in his Camcorder.

    You shouldn't assume anything about me not knowing something. I am like Pierre -- I know everything. Yay, me! Cheering

    First, it was a friggin' joke, guys.

    Second, 50 is the new 40. My grandfather died when he was 50; my father is 78 and still going strong. If we were projecting third year player stats then I'd say I'm not yet at mid-life.

    Third, when it comes to technology, I think I'm pretty comfortable. Been in high-tech since before there was an internet. I know more about the PVR/TV side of the CE market than pretty much everyone I know. Except for this one guy; he definitely knows more than I do about automating and consolidating all his home electronics.

    Lastly, it was a friggin' joke!

    The damned thing keeps flashing 12:00 at me.

    I actually don't have a VCR any more. Have a box of tapes somewhere, if the kids ever find it they'll have one of those nostalgic moments ("Oh, look! Barney!") and I'll have to either buy one or pay someone to convert them to disk.

    Here's a little stroll down memory lane. My first VHS VCR a Mitsubishi HiFi model and cost $1300. That was back in the early '80s so it's probably around $5K in today's dollars. And we b***h about Blu Ray players costing $500???!

    My family had to wait for Candle to get into the VCR game.Yes. Candle. I think it was about 400 bucks. My grandmother had a top-loading Quasar that cost 800 and still actually works. Laugh1

    I wish. I hate watering. I hear May/June are going to be quite dry. Good, I say, less mowing.
