I have had a media center for nearly a year now, and i have fallen in love with it. its pretty damn sweet! i love being able to record TV and watch it later, or even while its still recording. i love pausing live TV and getting coffee, and starting back where i left off. i love being able to rewind live TV too! i also love starting to watch a TV show, pausing it for about 5 or so minuites while getting coffee or stuff, and then watching it, fast forwarding ads when they come on, and just watch the “good stuff”. now with the big TV, it should make my TV watching experiance even more interesting!
