tv recording and time managing

by rfloydlewis / June 17, 2015 4:30 PM PDT

i live in a retirement village which provides a hybrid cable service contracted from other satellite providers.such as direct, dish and comcast. i would like to record content for later viewing and i would like to be able to stop a show for a short time and restart it without losing content. i have looked at Tivo and Channelmaster. Are there other options and what are good and bad elements of the two named.?

Not really.

All the others appear to get into trouble over content usage rights.

I fear that many that dive into these don't want to know that the content is not ours to do what we want like this.

of the two tivo seems the most flexible. it is less expensive for the hardware but , of course , there is the monthly software charge.

thank you for responding

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?
