Trolling For TV Print
Written by Mike Noel   
Thursday, 13 September 2007
In the bucolic years of my youth I spent many an afternoon at the local reservoir casting a line in the water hoping for a fish to bite. Occasionally boats would pass by streaming a couple lines out the back. While sitting on the shore I dreamed of being able to sit back on a boat and just troll a line out the back and wait for the fish to come and take the bait. But I didn't have a boat and that made trolling much more desirable. Since then the concept has always had a special place in my heart.
Now fast-forward 20 years and we have DVR systems. These clever little devices allow us to records shows off of cable (television cable) with very little effort. Probably one of the best features of DVRs is the fact that you don't have to know the time or channel that a show is coming on, you can just set the DVR to record a show by name and it just happens magically. In fact, the DVR can be set up to record all episodes of a show no matter which channel or time it plays.
Using this feature I now can go trolling. I set up the DVR to record a few shows at any time on any channel. A few days later I go back and see if my efforts have caught anything. If the newly recorded shows are repeats that I've already seen then I just throw them back. Otherwise they stay in my "recorded shows" queue until I'm ready to watch them.
DVR's are nive. I'm glad we have them now.
