TiVo and RSS

I just realized something, though I don't know why it never hit me before: TiVo is like an RSS reader for TV. Rather than you going and seeking out the content, it comes to you.

I also greatly miss my TiVo, and I'm thinking it's about time to buy a new one (especially after comparing it to building a XP Media Center system -- holy crap).

There's nothing like having your favorite programs waiting for you, especially when they're the kind that disappear for long stretches and come back, like Scientific American Frontiers on PBS. And with all the stupid pledge drives on PBS, I never know whether This Old House is actually on or not. Effortless television, how I miss thee.
