The Scientific Atlanta DVR Apocalypse

If there is a hell on earth, it will surely involve the Scientific Atlanta consoles that Time Warner laughably foists upon us as “DVR’s”.

Each and every week, our “DVR” fails to record at least one episode of a season pass due to strange start/end time conflicts.

One would think that if the “DVR” was going to fail to record a scheduled episode, the least it could do is to inform us of the failure.

But no; our “DVR” simply fails to record a show, silently, like a thief in the night, stealing our entertainment options away from us.

Perhaps this “DVR” is actually the first phase of the coming machine apocalypse? Is this Skynet’s advance party, come to annoy us to death?

  2. I assure you, your Time Warner DVR would still rate as the GOLD STANDARD compared to the ULTRA-CRAPIFIED U-verse DVR (Windoze CE — what were they thinking?)! I can write an entire series of books on how appallingly bad this complete joke of a fail is.

    Now I’m using DTV’s HR22, mostly better, but with the responsiveness of a Petrified Snail ™: 4-6 seconds between channel changes (yes, whole seconds NOT milliseconds!), button presses randomly lost 50% of the time…

    It’s amazing with all this technology, we’re actually going backwards in many ways.

    (Great site 😉
