Ditto on the DVR comment. The nice thing about Dish with DVR is I can trun the channel on, leave the room for 15-20 minutes, back the show up to the beginning, then skip all the commercials when they come up. It's perfect! Plus I set it up to record the stuff I like when I'm not home. It can hold like 90 hours of programming, so I can sit and watch the stuff whenever I want, and I never have to change the tape!
