I was just thinking about something I used to do when people would call while I was watching a television show that I didn’t want to miss. I used to switch the TV over to closed captioning. Sure it distracted me a little bit from my telephone conversation, but I could still keep up to some degree with what was going on in the show.
Now of course we have a PVR. That’s like a TIVO for those of you who don’t know what a PVR is. We almost always record our favorite shows on the PVR because we don’t always watch the shows when they are on TV. We watch them hours later. One bonus to this is we can skim through all the commercials.
The PVR also lets us pause or even rewind a live program. I love this! If the phone rings while I’m watching something interesting or if I need to use the washroom or go cook dinner I can either just pause the program or let it run and rewind it back to where I’d left off when I’m ready to watch the show again.
I love it!
Who else has a PVR?
