I’ve been playing with my TiVoHD. It has had a big impact on my life as it played a role in reacquainting me with old friends.
I used the TiVo desktop to move an HD recording of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to my server. I was able to watch it on my 30 inch monitor in my basement. Nice. Although my flagship machine manged this with no problem, another machine I have choked. This is very annoying. It is a 1.6 GHz dual core and it chokes on everything. It’s kind of useless. I’m not sure if it is the computer or if it is the fact that it’s running Vista. The flagship machine runs XP.
Anyhow, I like the idea of being able to watch HD shows down there. I’m not sure that it needs to be on my best computer though. I’m thinking that it might be time to build a new computer. As a stopgap, I’m using the quadcore that’s plugged into my HDTV to move the files to the server.
I am also playing with a wireless microphone and I bought a new webcam too. I’ll probably have more to say about that stuff in the future.
I feel like I needed to get some words going here, it’s been more than a little sparse lately.
