    You definitely used to, I think you mentioned it once.

    Did someone steal it while you were convalescing in your wanking pit.

    So what is the non-brand name for these devices? Over here we have Sky-Plus Boxes and also I believe there is another similar device called a Time Portal that is linked to a specific cable provider in London.

    Folks around here just call them tivos. They say "I'm gonna tivo that"...similar to googling, whether you actually use Google or not.

    The non-brand name is PVR or DVR (personal or digital video recorders).

    Tivo just happened to be the market leader. Replay TV came out at the same time but has since gave up making hardware.

    Until I started tivoing shows, I really didn't get to watch them as much.

    Since all the shows I watch are American, I just tivo them.

    Now if you are overseas or don't have the money for tivo then downloading everything makes perfect sense.

    Another thing is that many of my shows are in HD and I watch them on a big screen.

    I watch

    CSI
    CSI: Miami
    CSI: New York
    The Shield
    Lost
    Rescue Me
    BSG
    Stargate SG-1
    Stargate Atlantis
    Masters Of Horror
    Boondocks
    Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel
    The 4400
    The Dead Zone
    Monk
    The Daily Show
    Criminal Minds
    Invasion
    Surface
    Medium
    Supernatural
    Real Time With Bill Maher
    Wanted
    The L Word
    Drawn Together
    Family Guy
    60 Minutes
    The Equalizer
    American Dad
    24
    Prison Break
    PTI
    Numb3rs
    The Sopranos
    Big Love
    Weeds
    Thief
    The B-Side
    The Wire
    and usually a movie on StarzHD and HBOHD (at the same time) on Saturday night.

    Now these shows are from different season and stuff but if I download them I must wait longer, I have to encode them to watch them on my big screen and they probably won't be in HD.

    I like my HD. It puts regular TV (and DVD) to shame.

    I also don't mind breaks in the season 'cause sometimes my hard drive gets filled (HD takes more space) and have to delete 'cause I didn't have time to watch certain shows.

    Stuff gets repeated so I tivo it later. This happened when our power went out recently. The show I wanted came on 2 days later. No rush.

    Now I can understand a non-American downloading all the time if they watch alota American TV since it's the only way you'll get it unless you're TV schedule is behind ours for a certain show (like Lost).

    I downloaded Dr. Who like that but won't do it again.

    I'll just wait for the second season to come on cable. There's no rush unless there isn't shit to watch and I have too much to watch already.

    I wonder how many folks on here watch there downloads on a monitor. I did that with Babylon 5 at my old house (all 5 seasons, the movies, and Crusade).
    It was comfortable since I had my futon in my office and I could lay down and watch.

    Now I wouldn't think of watching on a computer monitor nor encode all that shit so I can watch on my big screen.

    It just ain't worth it.

    I deliberately wait for something in HD if possible. If I see a movie I might wanna watch (Life Aquatic is a perfect example), I'll wait 'till it's on an HD channel. There's other shit to watch in the meantime.
