Maybe the TiVo performance is location related?

How do you watch catch up in HD? Everything I've ever tried to watch back is just appalling quality rather like their customer service. It's actually laughable that I am on a forum trying to find out how to watch catch up TV in HD. Seeing as I am still paying for HD despite it being a ten year old "technology" that's all I should be able to get let alone hunting around for the thing.

ITV Local News referring to Arsenal V Watford as a London derby

Dj 784 02-04-2016 10:54 PM

The concept of a 'London Derby' in general, I couldn't give a s*** about Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, West Ham, Fulham or QPR, so why do these games get hyped up by the media as 'London Derbys' as if the term means something.

Saving myself for Match of the Day (regarding the result today), only to have it emblazoned at the top of my search results as I try to buy a semi-final ticket just now.

I would've enjoyed a 2-2 away draw! It would've made my evening.

Commentators that don't accept the standard palace pronunciation of players names, but instead create different versions - font, grabBAN etc.

It's annoying that electronic bank transaction don't take place during the weekend... do computers take the weekend off?

Oh rest assured I've been a regular contributor on there. :D

16 months without a home phone line after they 'nicked it' having oversold their services locally. Sixteen months of compensation, coupled with not having to pay for a landline I didn't want. It was brilliant :D. I was gutted when my neighbor moved and cancelled. Amazingly I got my landline back within a week, without them having to dig up a major highway. :sob:

I've had a TiVo box since they first offered them, I'm on my second now. It may well be "a long term issue with TiVo boxes", but crucially it's not all TiVo boxes, both of ours cope with HD despite all the supposed technical issues that prevent them doing so.

I agree it's odd but I can only report our experiences as we find them.

People who live on streets without parking restrictions who get annoyed about other people parking their cars on said street.

Tough shit.

Schoolboy error. They barely go through the pretence of giving you enough time to find the remote before blabbing the scores on the news beforehand nowadays. Looking at your phone or PC is asking for trouble.

God I miss Midweek Sports Special in the 80's.

Bastard owl night after night. So pleased we relegated them.

Pedestrians who don't acknowledge you when you stop to let them over the road. I feel a Death Race 2000 modification to the car coming on.

Cars that stop to let pedestrians cross even though the car has right of way

Depends on the circumstances, surely?

Luton airport.

I cannot think of a single non-hateful thing about it (other than it is about twenty mins door to door).
