D is for DVR

What else would it be for?  I've often sung the praises of, and my love for, the amazing invention that is the DVR.  Where would we be without it?  Granted, to some it may not seem that important, but to someone who's an admitted TV addict, it's life changing.  Now, I know I'm not the only one out there who is in love with their DVR.  Hopefully I'm not the only one who is willing to blog about it!

Our DVR has been working overtime lately as our schedules have been crazy busy and we've had some pretty late nights.  We currently have 48% of the space remaining, which is a lot.  Especially considering all that it is currently holding.  Weekends, when they're not also busy, are dedicated to relaxing and cleaning of the DVR as much as possible.  It's a never-ending cycle though as it is often recording faster than we can watch.  But isn't that the point of the DVR?  To allow you the freedom to watch everything your heart desires, whenever you'd like to watch it?  Oh, and let's not forget the ability to fast-forward through the commercials!  Another wondrous trait of the DVR!  Yet another piece of modern technology that people lived for many years without, but now we cannot imagine life without it!  Ahhhh technology, what a beautiful thing!

Behold the power!  The awesome power!

All is well, everything on demand, in Drosche Land.


  1. Since coming to the Philippines on sabbatical while waiting for my novel to be published, I have missed my AT&T DVR like a leg!

    The Philippine cable providers have no idea what these devices are. :(

    My old DVR was turned in, and it was at that time that I learned that the TV shows I was in that were on the dang thing could not be saved outside of it.

    That's something that needs to be remedied.

  2. Great point! I don't know what'd do without one or if I had to lose everything on mine! Yikes!
