DVR Fail

I can’t tell you how pissed off I am at my DVR. It ate the series finale of Lost.

Let me back up. Yesterday was one of the worst migraines I’ve had in a long time. I woke up with it and it never got better despite taking Excedrin, laying down with the cold compress on my eyes and even eventually taking one of my ubber rare Immitrex.

So by about 8:30pm as we’re watching the Lost Farewell special, I realize I just can’t make it. I can’t make it until 11:30pm feeling this way. At that point, I was so nauseous and sick I just couldn’t sit there any longer.

So I laid down around 8:45pm and told Love to wake me up at 10pm so we could try and watch Lost on delay on the recording. Both of us really wanted to watch it of course and neither wanted to risk getting spoilers for it by waiting until Monday to watch it.

10pm rolls around and I still rather be sleeping but I get up and we start watching it about 10:15pm.

It’s on and playing and we’re still quite a ways behind “live” when the clock turns to 11:00pm, the DVR goes to live TV, stops recording the remaining half hour of the program and didn’t save the recording from 9-11pm it had been doing.


No clue why. No idea what the fuck is wrong with it but it totally just utterly and completely failed.

So I got to see about the first 30 minutes of the episode and the rest got completely eaten for no reason whatsoever.

I am SO pissed.
