One bit more on the Beeb...

For those of you who have never used a TiVo or similar digital video recorder, sorry.

You know how when you set your DVR to record a show, there's usually between one to two and a half minutes of commercials at the start? No matter which channel you're on?

Everything I record on the bbc starts precisely on time. That little tiny bit of time where the screen is black in between the last commercial and the intro with the theme song? The beeb has that perfectly timed for time/warner's service, for every show.

Here's to British* information technology!

*Please, no more than one tut tut or wot wot per person per comment. Maximum of 3 per household.
