The Demo Gods are Angry at CES

Here is video of Gate's MCE demo at CES.  Not only a MCE crash, but also an XBox crash later on in the day.  Very embarassing.  But it isn't without a precedent:

Tivo v. ReplayTV...Take 2

After a relatively happy honeymoon, my marriage to the new Tivo is on the rocks.  I've been spoiled.  ReplayTV just does what I expect, with less of the intrusive advertising of Tivo.  Here are my sticking points:

So this leaves me with two options, go back to my ReplayTV (luckily I still have it), or see what a Windows Media Center Edition box with the XBox MCE Extender will do for me.  For now I am probably just going to get the ReplayTV going again, and look at the MCE for the future.

Christmas Eve

Elf on the TV, apple pies in the oven, ham on the table and I am blogging.  I must be nuts.  Of course I am at my mother's house and anything to get me out from in the middle of my vaguely crazy family.  Its wonderful to be home, but I am constantly reminded of why I left my hometown to begin with. 

I hope everyone out there is having a happy holidays, whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice or just December.
