DVR hurting Football

Number of Views : 2644

I could not help but read this article. I am a TiVo user so this does not apply. However, for loyal comcast users this may be an eye opener. The team over at comcast created a feature called auto correction fast forward. It basically tries to interpret your clicks (fast forward or rewind) and put the screen where it thinks you should be. Not where you clicked the button.

I find this really funny because in our house, I’m not very good at skipping commercials. However, I have trained myself based on how quickly I want to proceed. I could see where this would be useful if it used some logic based on the end of commercials. It seems though it just guesses. This would really drive me crazy on Football games similar to the article.

If anyone has a comcast DVR let me know if this is actually implemented.
