Pause Live TV and Record

by TiVonewbie / December 3, 2009 1:02 AM PST

I'm getting a new HD TV. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Currently I have Dish Network's two-room DVR (SD only). We only have their local package and a couple of their international channels which are not offered on HD. I DO NOT want to upgrade to DISH's HD service cos my needs are pretty limited. Dish says it'll provide the HD receiver free of cost only if I bought one of their 'packages'. I'm not willing to do that. So I'm planning to hook up an indoor antenna to my HDTV. However, I would like be able to pause live TV (esp Football) and also record programs. Can I accomplish this using a HD Tivo? Would it also allow me to record to a DVD?

Does anyone have any other suggestions for my needs? Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
