no, it's not fair to the producers. I'd rather suffer huge timeline gaps and miss out on character development

I wish I could do that. I still foolishly try to interact with the web on a dialup modem account

no, I built my own PVR. I'll do as I please with the encodings and archive them to DVD-R if I feel like it

no, I'm a MCPA zealot. I'll have your first child for "stealing" episodes like this. And if you don't actively watch the commercials I'll have your eyes gouged out.

When you can't get to your PVR to capture a TV episode or if you don't have a PVR do you download episodes you've missed?

Yeah, I turned my PC into a PVR so, any shows that I know I am giong to miss, or really like, I do encode to dvd quality. DVD quality isn't saying much, considering where I live has the shittiest cable quality ever.

Are you a government agent by any chance? Anyhow I do both, I download and I record, I download most of the time since I rarely watch tv with my schedual, I can catch what I miss on the weekends.

I have this one thing called AverTV for my computer that you plug into the USB and it has some schedule thing that makes me record like whole seasons. I just use that when I want to download full TV shows or seasons.

Same here. TV makes my brain hurt. Twisted Evil

I download most things up front seeing as to how most series take at least 5 seasons before the first season will be aired here. Unless it are things like Joey and such, but still it's always 1 season behind then.

I will generally download a show within a week or so of missing it (otherwise what's the point?) However, I refuse to download shows that are already available on DVD (unless of course they are from a different country and I'm unlikely to ever see said show released here in the States.)
