Many a times I just forget the date and time of a show that I wanted to see on TV. I would be tuned to another channel and then suddenly I would realize that I missed the show that I had planned to watch.
It would be nice to have a feature in the TV set that could store the day, time and channel number
of the program that I wish to see and then would flash the TV screen with the channel number/name of the program (if I am on another channel) that I should be watching on that day at that time.
ReplayTV or Tivo
A digital TV recorder will do this, and much more---in some cases it will even pick shows for you. [krelnik, Oct 04 2004]
|This has been done... With the digital TV I use you can set reminders that flash up 5 minutes before the program and prompt to change channel (or indeed automatically change for you). It can be set for 'one off' or daily or weekly use.
|sky digital (in the uk) has this. can be taken further, see tivo.com (both us and uk)
