Screwed up taping the first half of Daniel Deronda Sunday night. These VHS tapes hold so little at the high-quality speeds. Juggling the incoming TV stream is becoming unmanageable. So far I’ve managed to avoid cable except when I was rooting for Jerry Brown on the road to the whitehouse in ’91 and ’92. Now, we’d need cable or a DirectTV-type satellite to make TiVo work, right? and it needs a phonejack to download the schedule? I have to study the pricepoints, think about this.
