Evening Reading

By Steve Gibson, Nov 06, 2007 6:00pm PST So my beloved HR10-250 HD TiVo finally died on me this week and DirecTV doesnt replace those anymore. Sadly my complex is locked to DirecTV so my only options are eBay another HR10 or use the replacement HR20. I'm going to try the HR20 out since it's free and I'm not locked in to any extra commitment but I'm quite uh.. wary. Even if the interface is ok I cant stand the remote and would end up having to find a good universal. Any suggestions on a very simple universal remote that works well with an HR20?

Lastly, more shows stopping due to the writers strike.

  • had a chance to play rock band at best buy today.

    i only briefly played the guitar, but the strum bar is excellent. the clicking bar has been replaced with a very smooth feeling one with bounce back that i absolutely love. i couldnt get used to the feeling of the frets because they are recessed in. i think the neck of the guitar may be shorter than the gh guitars too? after failing wave of mutilation on expert, i quit and went back to what is gonna sell the game for me...

    the drums!

    i played the drums on hard and it was so damn fun. they didnt feel like foam, so i dont know who said they were foam, but they are a type of rubbery plastic that do make some noise when hit. also, i had to hit them harder than i thought to get the hits to register and also near the center. man, what a blast! i got around 90-95% on hard in should i stay or should i go, suffragette city, epic, and main offender.
