Damn you, DVR

I have a bone to pick with my DVR. I know there are probably hundreds of blog posts out there about DVR's and the fact that they kind of have a mind of their own. But, it's now my turn.

Our DVR has a mind of it's own. Seriously. And, it's beginning to piss me off.

We came home tonight from a lovely impromptu date night. We went to dinner spending our Groupon and then went and saw Black Swan*. And then, we came home and cozied up to eachother on the couch preparing to watch some good ol' DVR amazingness.

I pulled up the list and noticed something was missing.

Can you see what's missing? Probably not. But, it's 9:30 and Private Practice isn't recording. It should say, "Private Practice" and have a little recording icon next to it. But, that's missing.

Are you kidding me?! Ugh.

Now, I know I'm being ridiculous. I'm really worked up about this which tells me that I need to let go of the television again for a while. But until then, damn you DVR for being wonderful enough that I get hooked to you and then not recording my shows.

*Black Swan: I'm still precessing this movie. It was intense. I mean, wow.

At least you can watch it online tomorrow! We missed American Idol's Nashville auditions last week because our DVR wanted to play games.

It's true. At least it is something I can pull up tomorrow. Just, dangit, I have a schedule! ;)

My DVR wasn't going to record Private Practice either, I think something got messed up when they had that time slot change with Off the Map? I had to manually choose it. Yuk. ...Not to rub it in but I'm watching now and its good. So at least you have something to look forward to?

I didn't think about the time slot thing with Off the Map, because that did record as Private Practice. Hmmm. And, I'm glad to hear it's good...
