"I do still record television programs with my VCR however."

I do also and here is the rub.
I cannot record on a DVD.
I refuse to give up my Reel to Reel, Lps, or my cassette all analog.
There is nothing wrong with any of them.
My surround sound (SONY) and (Bose Speakers) sound just fine with the VCR tapes or a DVD player.

I am not a late adopter. I was the first on my block to own an Apple 2+, a Stereo RCA VCR, (both 1979-1980?). First to own a real DOS machine, First to own a CD burner $800.00, what a rip, first to own a Palm at my current employer......

Don't like paying for bits that are 100x cheaper than its analog counter part. Bits are cheaper and I feel I am being riped off.

Look the cost of VCR tape was $14.00 it's now a dollar. Took 20 years.

Every DVD player has the ability to burn a CD its just not used...Yet.

I want a recordable DVD. I want digital cable built in my TV at $19.95 a month with Voice over IP and always on connection for my CPU.
Cannot wait to tell my local "carrier" to uninstall the phone.


I have been lurking for a long time on these here Foolish boards and I really needed to vent.
Will try to add something useful....
