Tivo:an unexpected failure mode

Products by on October 10, 2004 at 6:32 pm
Iva and I were out on Friday night and we were unable to watch the 2nd presidential debate live. Perfect, this is exactly one of the problems that Tivo solves. Since the debate was on just about every channel, we picked one of the identically titled, “2nd Presidential Debate”, and Tivo did exactly what it was supposed to do and recorded the debate in its entirety.

We sat down last night to watch the pre-recorded debate, and discovered one problem: we had unknowingly recorded the debate from a Spanish channel. Now, there’s a failure mode I’m sure Tivo didn’t expect.
